Summary

Trouble follows Lucy wherever she goes. So does a vision of second chances . . . and love. 
Lucy Fairbanks dreams of working as a photographer at the Rocky Creek newspaper. Her deepest hope is that her father will see her as an artist, the way he thought of her deceased mother, whose paintings still hang on their walls. 
But disaster follows Lucy on every photo assignment: a mess of petticoats and ribbons, an accidental shooting, even a fire. 
When Lucy meets David Wolfùa rugged, reclusive man who lives on the outskirts of townùshe thinks she can catch the attention of the town with his photograph. She doesn't count on her feelings stirring whenever she's near him. 
Two things happen next that forever change the course of Lucy's life. But will these events draw her closer to God or push her further away? And how will David accept this new vision of Lucy?

    What does it mean to be "chosen"? Why does God choose a people – a land, a city, and a mountain? What are His plans? And: Has history really proven the fact that this nation was chosen?
    In John 4:22, Jesus says to a gentile woman, "You do not know what you worship; but we know what we worship; for salvation is from the Jews."
    "Chosen" – this book digs deeply into the subject, looking for answers through in-depth Bible studies. It touches many sensitive issues concerning the Jewish people, the land of Israel, the city of Jerusalem, and Mt. Zion. There is a special emphasis on the relationship between Israel and the nations.
    The book does not shy away from controversial questions! And so it serves to find enlightening and helpful answers in the Word of God.
