Summary

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.”  
 
Right before ascending into heaven, Jesus stood on a mountain and delivered the Great Commission, instructing all His followers to make disciples of all nations. Promising He would always be with us, He drifted up into the clouds. Two thousand years later, our objective remains and we steadfastly—  
 
Wait, what? Make disciples of all nations? How do you do that?  
 
Jesus’ early followers knew precisely what to do. They knew because the Messiah had spent the three years prior turning them into disciples. They followed His example and “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6), and that example is left for us as well.  
 
In Go Make Disciples, bestselling author Brad Francis takes us through the five aspects of discipleship that Jesus regularly practiced: example, evaluation, education, equipping and experience. Discover how Jesus took a dozen ordinary, uneducated men and turned them into Christ followers who boldly reached their world with the Gospel. After seeing how Jesus made disciples, Brad also offers ideas about how we can adapt His methods for our modern world.  
 
Whether you’ve personally been involved in discipling hundreds, or whether you’ve never known how to even take the first step toward making disciples, Go Make Disciples provides a strong biblical foundation for following Jesus’ commands. If the Great Commission applies to you, so does this book!

    While this new Bible is certainly an inclusive-language translation, it is much more: it is a re-imagining of the scriptures and our relationship to them. Not merely replacing male pronouns, the translators have rethought what kind of language has built barriers between the text and its readers. Seeking to be faithful to the original languages, they have sought new and non-sexist ways to express the same ancient truths. The Inclusive Bible is a fresh, dynamic translation into modern English, carefully crafted to let the power and poetry of the language shine forth—particularly when read aloud—giving it an immediacy and intimacy rarely found in traditional translations of the Bible. The Inclusive Bible contains both the Old and the New Testaments.

    “Sweetbriar Cottage is a story to fall in love with. True-to-life characters, high stakes, and powerful chemistry blend to tell an emotional story of reconciliation.” 
    —Brenda Novak, New York Times bestselling author 
    When Noah and Josephine discover their divorce was never actually finalized, their lives are turned upside down. 
    Following his divorce, Noah gave up his dream job and settled at a remote horse ranch in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia, putting much-needed distance between himself and the former love of his life. But then Noah gets a letter from the IRS claiming he and Josephine are still married. When he confronts Josephine, they discover that she missed the final step in filing the paperwork and they are, in fact, still married. 
    Josephine is no happier about the news than Noah. Maybe the failed marriage—and botched divorce—was her fault, but her heart was shattered right alongside his, more than he would ever believe. The sooner they put this marriage behind them, the better for both of their sakes. 
    But when Josephine delivers the final paperwork to his ranch, the two become stranded in his cottage during the worst spring snowstorm in a decade. Being trapped with Josephine is a test of Noah’s endurance. He wrestles with resentment and an unmistakable pull to his wife—still beautiful, still brave, and still more intriguing than any woman he’s ever known. 
    As they find themselves confronted with each other and their shared past, old wounds surface and tempers flare. But when they are forced out into the storm, they must rely on each other in a way they never have before. Josephine finally opens up about her tragic past, and Noah realizes she’s never been loved unconditionally by anyone—including him. Will Noah accept the challenge to pursue Josephine’s heart? And can she finally find the courage to trust Noah? 
    “Sweetbriar Cottage is a wonderful story, full of emotional tension and evocative prose.”

    No one writes a pirate story better than Christy award finalist Tyndall!  This romantic, action-packed adventure illustrates the healing, redemptive power of God’s grace while still offering readers the excitement they crave. Chandra McNeil, Romantic Times 
    How does a British Admiral’s daughter end up being sold as a slave on the auction block in St. Kitts? Could it be the loss of her mother, the verbal abuse of a strict father, the violation by a family member? Or maybe that her sister is a pirate! All these things and more drove Hope Westcott to seek love and value in the arms of unscrupulous men and hence into this dire situation. 
    Nathaniel Mason has loved Hope from afar for years, but her scandalous behavior, along with his efforts to start a shipping company, have kept him at a distance. Growing up an orphan has convinced Nathaniel that only wealth can provide security. Yet when he sees Hope on the auction block, how much of that security will he risk to save her?    
    Hurricanes, shipwrecks, deserted islands, and even pirates threaten to keep the lovers apart before they learn that only God can provide the love and assurance they both seek. 
    I really enjoyed this novel. It had the right touch of mystery, intrigue, romance and faith – which is a combination that is potent.Romance Readers Connection
