Summary

Christmas is the most famous holiday of the year, and the word itself evokes images of Santa Claus, reindeer, snow, Christmas trees, egg nog and more. At the same time, it represents Christianity's most important event, the birth of the baby Jesus. Instantly, well known Christmas carols ring in your ears, pictures of the Nativity Scene become ubiquitous, or maybe you even picture nutcrackers or Scrooge and Tiny Tim.

    This
    book is intended for both ministers and laymen. It will be of help to the
    minister in suggesting to him how to make full proof of his own ministry and
    how to get his people to work. It will be of help to laymen in pointing out to
    them many fields of fruitful labor for Christ.
    
    The Church of Christ is full of people who wish to work for their
    Master but do not know how. This book is intended to tell them how. It contains
    no untried theories, but describes many methods of work that have been put to
    the test of actual experiment and have succeeded. As far as known there is no
    other book that covers the same field. For years it has been upon my heart to
    write this book, and I have been asked again and again to do so. But I have
    never found time until now. May it be used of God to the conversion of
    thousands to Christ.

    The parish church is a symbol of continuity, a cornerstone of the urban and rural landscape, and a treasure trove often as rich in cultural history as any museum. This compact and accessible guide explores all of these aspects of the parish church, beginning by examining why churches are built where they are, and going on to explain how both church buildings and churchyards have changed over time. It also describes their fixtures and furnishings, including fonts, screens, stained glass and monuments, explaining the ritual and symbolic purpose of these features and how their significance has shifted over time. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, this book will provide an indispensable primer for anyone who is curious about the nation's parish churches and wants to explore them further.

    One of Southern Living’s “25 Beach Reads Perfect for Summer”“A perfect blend of romance and women’s fiction.” —SHERRYL WOODS, #1 New York Times bestselling author 
    A Summer of Low Tides Could Expose Years of Family Secrets 
    When her grandmother goes missing from the family beach house, Maddy and her estranged sisters converge in Sea Haven, North Carolina. Being with uptight Nora and free-spirited Emma in the home where their family broke apart is a struggle Maddy is not in the mood to face, especially since she’s recovering from her ex-boyfriend’s betrayal. 
    As the sisters wait for word of their grandmother, they begin to pack up the family belongings—and unpack memories of the idyllic summers of their childhood. But with those memories come long-buried secrets, and Maddy discovers that all was not as it appeared that last summer in Sea Haven. Meanwhile, Gram’s neighbor, Connor Sullivan, seems overly interested in Gram’s whereabouts. Maddy is drawn in by his quick smile and steady gaze in spite of herself. 
    Undercurrents of jealousy and resentment threaten to pull the family under again, maybe for good this time. As tensions rise, the sisters must find a way to accept each other for the women they’ve become—and Maddy must decide if falling in love again is worth the potential heartbreak. 
    “I have never read a romance by Denise Hunter that didn’t sweep me away into a happily ever after. Treat yourself!” —Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author of Who I Am With You 
    “Denise Hunter once again proves she’s the queen of romantic drama. Summer by the Tides is both a perfect beach romance and a dramatic story of second chances as sisters unravel secrets that have torn them apart for years. This novel is Hunter at the top of her game. If you like Robyn Carr, you’ll love Denise Hunter.  I couldn’t put it down!” —Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author of the Lavender Tides series
