Summary

This is a book, first and foremost, about God. This is a book about the passionate love He has for His children and the interest He shows in their work, described through the lives of those that are living for Him. If there is anything impressive about the stories in this book, it is God Himself. Through the testimonies of twenty-four young professionals, you will find honest accounts of how they have wrestled with what it means to be a Christian in the industries God has placed them in: 

• Finding meaning and purpose at work
• Being content with the present yet being ambitious for the future
• Discerning God’s will for what work to do
• Balancing work, family and church commitments
• Being on mission at work 
If you are just about to start your career; if you are at a bit of a crossroads in your career; if you want to explore more of what it means to be a Christian; in your workplace or if you just want to be encouraged by the fact that God is at work in our workplaces and through our careers, then this book is for you.

    Perhaps no other American president is as revered as Abraham Lincoln, whose strong faith and moral courage inspired a nation, and whose timeless words of common sense continue to influence men and women today. 	In Abraham Lincoln's Daily Treasure, readers will find daily devotional selections in a variety of subject themes. Each devotion includes Scripture, a devotional thought, a spiritual or inspirational quote from Lincoln or a related fact about his life, and take-away for personal application. This unique devotional is built around the Believer's Daily Treasure, a book Lincoln was given in 1847 upon the death of his son and that he carried with him always. Lincoln often quoted from the Believer's Daily Treasure in his addresses to the nation and included snippets from it in his letters. He also read from it for personal strength during the Civil War.	Readers who are wanting an interesting devotional, Christians looking for wisdom distilled through the lens of history, Lincoln aficionados, and history buffs will all appreciate this unique look into the life of Lincoln that is ideal for personal use or for gift-giving.

    This prize-winning novel of a fugitive priest in Mexico is quite simply “Graham Greene’s masterpiece” (John Updike, The New York Review of Books).   In the Mexican state of Tabasco in the 1930s, all vestiges of Catholicism are being outlawed by the government. As churches are razed, icons are banned, and the price of devotion is execution, an unnamed member of the clergy flees. He’s known only as the “whisky priest.” Beset by heretical vices, guilt, and an immoral past, he’s torn between self-destruction and self-preservation. Too modest to be a martyr, too stubborn to follow the law, and too craven to take a bullet, he now travels as one of the hunted—attending, in secret, to the spiritual needs of the faithful. When a peasant begs him to return to Tabasco to hear the confessions of a dying man, the whisky priest knows it’s a trap. But it’s also his duty—and possibly his salvation.   Named by Time magazine as one of the hundred best English-language novels written since 1923, The Power and the Glory is “a violent, raw” work on “suffering, strained faith, and ultimate redemption” (The Atlantic).

    Before You Take a Stand … You Got to Take a Chance. Holden Harris is an eighteen-year-old locked in a prison of autism. Despite his quiet ways and quirky behaviors, Holden is very happy and socially normal—on the inside, in a private world all his own. In reality, he is bullied at school by kids who only see that he is very different. Ella Reynolds is part of the “in” crowd. A cheerleader and star of the high school drama production, her life seems perfect. When she catches Holden listening to her rehearse for the school play, she is drawn to him … the way he is drawn to the music. Then, Ella makes a dramatic discovery—she and Holden were best friends as children. Frustrated by the way Holden is bullied, and horrified at the indifference of her peers, Ella decides to take a stand against the most privileged and popular kids at school. Including her boyfriend, Jake. Ella believes miracles can happen in the unlikeliest places, and that just maybe an entire community might celebrate from the sidelines. But will Holden’s praying mother and the efforts of Ella and a cast of theater kids be enough to unlock the prison that contains Holden? This time, friendship, faith, and the power of a song must be strong enough to open the doors to the miracle Holden needs.
