Summary

History revealed and sacred discovery. Punishment and redemption in the ancient Kingdom of Saba.

Deep in the Ethiopian Highlands lies a secret cavern guarded by a chosen few, for it contains the object of mankind’s dreams and deepest desires. 
A hoax and fraud.This is how many regard the letter written by the legendary Prester John, ruler of a powerful yet unexplored Christian Kingdom named Ethiopia... but one researcher and historian didn’t look at the letter as dupery, Ayana Regassa saw only clues that could answer one of histories greatest questions. Makeda. The Queen of Sheba; the only proof of her actual existence being written in the holy scriptures. A great queen shrouded in legend and myth. Mother to the son of King Solomon... Menelik I, the first Solomonic emperor of Ethiopia!Ayana became convinced that the letter held the key to proof, all that she needed was someone else to believe!Beyond her wildest dreams a benefactor stepped forward in the form of Hans Meisner, a terminally ill and vastly wealthy German industrialist, who commits to funding her exploration. But little does she know that Herr Meisner has his own agenda, and a deep dark secret.Teamed with Dr.James Preston, a British TV star and archaeologist, Ira Goldblum, an ageing and cantankerous Israeli professor of Ancient Languages, Helen Ross, a Wiccan specialist in Ancient Religions and all around odd-ball, plus a squad of South African mercenaries posing as security, they head into the majestic Ethiopian highlands following clues gleaned from Prester John’s letter.But the letter isn’t a hoax, and the small civilian team soon find themselves protecting sites of great historical and Biblical importance from forces driven by greed, and bent on exploitation.

The Fountain of Saba, an African adventure filled with historical fact and discovery, romance, jeopardy and danger, the super-natural,superstition, religious supposition, and for some... redemption.

    Updated with a new bonus epilogue!  
    From New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hauck comes Nashville Sweetheart, a story of dreams lost and found in one of America’s hottest cities. 
    “Packing witty dialogue, quirky characters, and a rocking country vibe, her story will make you laugh as it plunges you into the world of today’s country music industry.” —Christianbook.com 
    The media mystery that is superstar Aubrey James is about to be unraveled—one memory at a time. 
    At thirty years old, Aubrey James has been at the top of country charts for over a decade; but as the daughter of gospel icons Ray and Myra James, she was in the public eye long before her own success. Aubrey James knows Nashville stardom. 
    Though her parents’ untimely death gave Aubrey the kind of tragic legacy that Nashville royalty is made of, she would have preferred keeping her family . . . and the faith she lost somewhere along the way. Now she exists in a guarded, private world, letting nothing in, not even love. 
    But when her music director betrays Aubrey’s trust with a smear campaign of tabloid interviews, the star knows the time has come to go public with her private story for the first time. And when her Inside NashVegas interviewer turns out to be a man from her past—a man she’d hoped to forget—this interview gets complicated fast. 
    The music diva’s guarded heart is about to become a distant memory. 
    Nashville Sweetheart is a wild ride through the whirlwind of Nashville stardom, the political show that is the music business, and the secret faith that can fortify even the most tragic family ties. 
    *Nashville Sweetheart was originally published as Diva NashVegas.

    When you pray, are you talking to a God who exists? Or is God nothing more than your "imaginary friend," like a playmate contrived by a lonely and imaginative child? 
    When author Sam Harris attacked Christianity in Letter to a Christian Nation, reviewers called the book "marvelous" and a generation of readers--hundreds of thousands of them--were drawn to his message. Deeply troubled, Dr. Ravi Zacharias knew that he had to respond. 
    In The End of Reason, Zacharias underscores the dependability of the Bible along with his belief in the power and goodness of God. He confidently refutes Harris's claims that God is nothing more than a figment of one's imagination and that Christians regularly practice intolerance and hatred around the globe. 
    If you found Sam Harris's Letter to a Christian Nation compelling, the book you are holding is exactly what you need. Dr. Zacharias exposes "the utter bankruptcy of this worldview." And if you haven't read Harris's book, Ravi's response remains a powerful, passionate, irrefutably sound set of arguments for Christian thought. The clarity and hope in these pages reach out to readers who know and follow God as well as to those who reject God.
