Summaries of Book :

“A dazzling mosaic of intersecting lives and fates . . . Comparisons to John Irving and Tennessee Williams would not be amiss in this show-stopping debut” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). The national bestseller and Today Show Book Club selection, Broken for You is the story of two women in self-imposed exile whose lives are transformed when their paths intersect . . . When we meet septuagenarian Margaret Hughes, she is living alone in a mansion in Seattle with only a massive collection of valuable antiques for company. Enter Wanda Schultz, a young woman with a broken heart who has come west to search for her wayward boyfriend. Both women are guarding dark secrets and have spent many years building up protective armor against the outside world. As their tentative friendship evolves, the armor begins to fall away and Margaret opens her house to the younger woman. This launches a series of unanticipated events, leading Margaret to discover a way to redeem her cursed past, and Wanda to learn the true purpose of her cross-country journey. “I absolutely fell in love with this book. . . . There is a message here about creating family in the most unusual places. . . . A wonderful, engaging story.” —Sue Monk Kidd, New York Times–bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees “Well-crafted plotting and crackling wit make this debut novel by Seattle author Kallos a delight to read and a memory to savor . . . Book groups will enjoy discussing the layers of meaning, the stylistic nuances, and the powerful message of hope secreted in these pages.” —Booklist (starred review)

Book Excerpt:

In one way or another, we all carry trauma. It can manifest as anxiety, shame, low self-esteem, over-eating, under-eating, addiction, depression, confusion, people-pleasing, under-earning, low mood, negative thinking, social anxiety, anger, brain fog and more. Traumas, big or ‘little’, leave us trapped in cycles of dysfunctional behaviours, negative thoughts and difficult feelings. Yet many people are unaware they’re stuck in old reactions and patterns that stem from their past traumas. Many of us are wary of the word and push it away instead of moving towards it and learning how to break free. Dr Sarah Woodhouse is a Research Psychologist who specialises in trauma and is passionate about helping people face this word and their past. In You’re Not Broken she teaches you what a trauma is (it’s probably not what you think), and how to recognise when, why and how your past is holding you back. She gently explains the pitfalls of ignoring awkward, upsetting episodes and how true freedom comes from looking back at your past with honesty. Then, sharing the latest research-based techniques and her own personal experience, she guides you towards breaking the trauma loop, reawakening your true self and reclaiming your future.

Book Excerpt:

“For his anger endureth but for a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning” (Ps. 30:5, KJV). So is Broken for a Blessing: It is from a weeping night to a joyful morning—from brokenness to restoration. At some point, one will face some kind of turmoil, storm, or darkness. However, each of these can also be seen as a developing process. Like bread when it is broken: whenever a bread is broken: it meant, someone is getting ready to eat. This is the same from hurting to healing. God breaks you to heal you or turn you into a better person. This is what Broken for a Blessing is about. In this book, the author wrote ten chapters as he considers the number 10 to be significant. He talks about events that were written about in the Bible and uses the number as a metaphor of one’s destiny. He also uses the number 10 as a metaphor in his own life journey. When he was ten years old, he played a game called the ten steps to Zion. In the game, each of the competitors would hold a Bible. The judge would say “Sword in hand” and then give the competitors a Bible verse, and whoever found it first would take a step. The game would end when a player reached the tenth bench. The author would always be the one who would reach the tenth bench first. In addition, the author started his life in the United States with ten dollars; he actually started with a hundred dollars, but he used ninety dollars of that amount just to pay his rent. He was married for ten years before he suffered a broken marriage. It was during his time of brokenness and isolation when God revealed the book in his spirit, Broken for a Blessing. This book will inspire you and will let you know that there’s hope and a purpose for you. You should not get bitter when you are broken; rather, you should understand that you are going through to make yourself better. Whatever comes to break you should be seen as something that is coming to make you. There’s a process in the making and a process in becoming. This is not the time for you to break down; it’s the time for you to break through.

Book Excerpt:

“A sprawling fantasy saga . . . Caleb Carr boldly goes where he’s never gone before.”—USA Today Legend meets history in this mesmerizing novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Caleb Carr. Demonstrating the rich storytelling, skillful plotting, and depth of research he showcased in The Alienist, Carr has written a wildly imaginative, genre-bending saga that redefines the boundaries of literature. Some years ago, a remarkable manuscript long rumored to exist was discovered: The Legend of Broken. It tells of a prosperous fortress city where order reigns at the point of a sword—even as scheming factions secretly vie for control of the surrounding kingdom. Meanwhile, outside the city’s granite walls, an industrious tribe of exiles known as the Bane forages for sustenance in the wilds of Davon Wood. At every turn, the lives of Broken’s defenders and its would-be destroyers intertwine: Sixt Arnem, the widely respected and honorable head of the kingdom’s powerful army, grapples with his conscience and newfound responsibilities amid rumors of impending war. Lord Baster-kin, master of the Merchants’ Council, struggles to maintain the magnificence of his kingdom even as he pursues vainglorious dreams of power. And Keera, a gifted female tracker of the Bane tribe, embarks on a perilous journey to save her people, enlisting the aid of the notorious and brilliant philosopher Caliphestros. Together, they hope to exact a ruinous revenge on Broken, ushering in a day of reckoning when the mighty walls will be breached forever in a triumph of science over superstition. Breathtakingly profound and compulsively readable, Caleb Carr’s long-awaited new book is an action-packed, multicharacter epic of a medieval clash of cultures—in which new gods collide with old, science defies all expectation, and virtue comes in many guises. Brimming with adventure and narrative invention, The Legend of Broken is an exhilarating and enthralling masterwork. Praise for The Legend of Broken “An excellent and old-fashioned entertainment . . . The Legend of Broken seamlessly blends epic adventure with serious research and asks questions that men and women grappled with in the Dark Ages and still do today.”—The Washington Post “[A] colossal effort . . . a fantasy epic . . . meant as an allegory, a cautionary tale for our precarious times. To make his points, Carr has summoned a dream team of soldiers, wizards, and tiny forest folk.”—The New York Times Book Review “Carr keeps the action hurtling along with a steady diet of gruesome murders and political betrayals. And he clearly wants modern readers to see something of their own world in the political corruption and greed that ultimately doom Broken.”—The Boston Globe

Book Excerpt:

A New York Times bestseller! Brokenness doesn't only find us in the big things—things like illness, hardship, or grief. It can find you in the everyday. Learn to walk in a way that glorifies Jesus and receive freedom, not beyond your fear and pain, but within it. We are fragile and we know it. Sometimes, living with Christ in a messed-up world feels less like victory and more like walking uphill.

What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness. You could be one of the Beloved who is broken—and still lets yourself be loved. Ann desperately wants you to know: God is attracted to the broken, the sin-sick, and those in need The very things people are most ashamed of are the exact broken things that draw God to his people You can live in the face of your unspoken pain You can discover and trust this broken way—the way to not be afraid of broken things The Broken Way is simple in presentation, written in Ann’s unique style—a new way for desperate Christians in need of a fresh revelation of the grace of God.

Book Excerpt:

This book is about how we need a savior. The penalty for sin is death, but Christ takes our sins and saves our souls when we accept him. This book deals with the issues of life without Christ—how we live in a sinful world, cursed by God, until you accept his son Jesus. Did you ever wonder why your life is so messed up, even though you might be a good person? In this book I explain why: it’s because if you’re not born again—saved by the cross of Christ and the blood of Christ—you’re living in a world that God cursed. On the cross Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law so that we could be blessed by God again, reconciled back to God, and put in good right standing with him again. Jesus did all this on the cross for us. In the book I explain what happened to man because of sin in the Scriptures, and what happens to us when we accept Jesus. God loves us and made a way to get out of sin, be blessed again, and escape hell. Jesus did all of that for us. I explain it in the Word of God in this book and break it down so that you can understand salvation. If you die and never accept Jesus in your life, Revelation 20:15-20 says you will go to hell. That’s the gospel truth. It doesn’t cost us anything to be saved—just a prayer and inviting Jesus into your heart and life. It cost him everything, but he did it because he loved us.

Book Excerpt:

Lauren Layne’s heart-wrenching novel tells the story of a girl with secrets, a guy with scars, and a love that could save them both . . . or destroy them. When Olivia Middleton abandons the glamour of Park Avenue for a remote, coastal town in Maine, everyone assumes she’s being the kind do-gooder she’s always been. But Olivia has a secret: helping an injured war veteran reenter society isn’t about charity—it’s about penance. Only, Olivia’s client isn’t the grateful elderly man she’s expecting. Instead, he’s a brooding twenty-four-year-old who has no intention of being Olivia’s path to redemption . . . and whose smoldering gaze and forbidden touch might be her undoing. Paul Langdon doesn’t need a mirror to show him he’s no longer the hotshot quarterback he was before the war. He knows he’s ugly—inside and out. He’ll do anything to stay in self-imposed exile, even accept his father’s ultimatum that Paul tolerate the newest caretaker for three months or lose his inheritance. But Paul doesn’t count on the beautiful twenty-two-year-old who makes him long for things that he can never have. And the more she slips past his defenses, the more keeping his distance is impossible. Now Paul and Olivia have to decide: Will they help each other heal? Or are they forever broken? Praise for Broken “A solid tale and a quick read, with plenty of steamy romance and sex.”—Library Journal “Broken is as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming.

Book Excerpt:

One cold winter evening, after I'd read a short book of poems, I felt unenthused and a bit sad. My pondering led me to the thought that poetry must be truly inspired to be lively and meaningful to a reader. I even felt that it would be almost impossible to put forth verse without some quickening from deep within. Well, the next morning, I awoke with a gush of thoughtful rhymes! I exclaimed to my husband, "This is my dream come true!" With notebook and pen in hand, I made my way to an all-day couch, then poured out my first poem, "Dream," with several more on its trail. Thus was Jubilee Poetry born on January 16, 2017! This vibrant flow worked into fifty poems to highlight the year of Jubilee. Half of my pieces are acrostic style, with the titles spread downward as the left column. Many poems specifically magnify God's love and truth that responded to my weakness, pain, and desperate struggles. A few are longer works, such as "150 Psalms," which presents a line of verse for each lovely Psalm, and "Old" and "New" Testaments, which also feature an uplifting caption for every book of the Holy Bible. Two valuable indexes are provided after the poetry: first is an alphabetical listing of all fifty poems, along with related Scripture references and songs; second is a list of twenty six godly goals, along with supportive Scriptures and poems. These are tools to bring ready information to prepare ministry themes and Church programs, besides being key components of my ‘JUBILEE Daily Devotional Schedule' offered at the end of the book! I pray that this ‘inspired' work would glorify my wonderful Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and help grow His Kingdom on this vast earth, one precious soul at a time.

From New York Times bestselling author Rachel Held Evans comes a book that is both a heartfelt ode to the past and hopeful gaze into the future of what it means to be a part of the Church. Centered around seven sacraments, Evans' quest takes readers through a liturgical year with sharply honest and even funny stories about Like millions of her millennial peers, Rachel Held Evans didn't want to go to church anymore. The hypocrisy, the politics, the gargantuan building budgets, the scandals--church culture seemed so far removed from Jesus. Yet, despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back to Church. And so she set out on a journey to understand Church and to find her place in it. Baptism Communion Confirmation COnfession Marriage Vocation and even Death. Like millions of her millennial peers, Rachel Held Evans didn't want to go to church anymore.

Yet, despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back to Church. And so she set out on a journey to understand Church and to find her place in it. A memoir about making do and taking risks, about the messiness of community and the power of grace, Searching for Sunday is about overcoming cynicism to find hope and, somewhere in between, Church.

Book Excerpt:

God, life, and questions. For many more questions than answers. Please read this book, for there is one prose poem written for you. Written for You is a book with prose poems recited by Pastor Sam Iglesias, then a Bible verse followed by his homily. They are linked together for continuity; this allows the reflection of the word of God and how it will enable you to understand the Lord's grace. The Lord has not changed and what was is still today. Find God, in his words, in the Holy Bible. Your starting point of building your faith and trust. Written for You is written in the hope that it may affect you profoundly, so it may show you that the word of our Lord is relevant in your life; continue to learn and teach the word, serve the Lord. Allow yourself to be a teacher, allow the Holy Spirit to be present. Jesus said, “Wherever you may go in the world, tell all of the good news.” Pastor Sam gives you the good news, for the Lord commands him, as it is commanded for you to share the good news with all. Written for You is only a key; it can open the door, but you must choose from the two alternatives, the world or the word. We must pray for the grace, valor, and wisdom. When we surrender and submit to his authority, then the true purpose of who you are will be revealed and allow you to see the light, so you may worship the Lord in his splendor and do his will.

Book Excerpt:

The other side of brokenness "If I could write only one book in my lifetime, I would ask God to make it this one, the very book you now hold in your hands. . . ."?Sheila Walsh God loves broken people. And when weary, wounded men and women find a way to open their bruised hearts and somehow welcome Him into their personal darkness, they will find a love beyond anything they have ever known. When the glass house Sheila had lived in for so many years came crashing to the ground, she began a new life outside the safety of those walls. No, it didn't feel good, nor safe?not at all. But it felt true. Sheila saw herself as a broken lamb limping after the Shepherd, not knowing where He was going, but knowing that wherever He went, she wanted to go with Him. In twelve stirring, insightful, and deeply revealing chapters, Sheila Walsh shows how personal brokenness can open doors of intimacy with Jesus Christ that might never open in any other way. It's not that God loves broken people more than those who imagine themselves to be whole?it's simply that they know they are loved. They dare to believe it . . . and through such trust, a new wholeness emerges from yesterday's broken pieces.

Book Excerpt:

What does it really mean to be broken? To be fractured or damaged and no longer in one piece, or in working order, or to have given up all hope. Have we not all felt this way at some point in our lives? Sometimes it was one major blow shattering us into a million pieces. Other times, it was many small cracks slowly breaking us down. Maybe right now you have been hit and you are falling apart or you are just feeling your purpose slowly drift from your hands. Maybe this happened recently or maybe it was years ago. Whatever your circumstances, we were not created to live this way. Although our bodies, minds, and spirits may be attacked daily, there is a way to piece ourselves back together. There is a way to find purpose for our lives and to reignite a passion for a more meaningful life. I do not possess a magic potion or equation capable of producing a higher level of living, but I know someone who does contain the answer and I found it more correctly stated, I found Him.

Book Excerpt:

Brokenness happens. Tragedy, sin, and the painful choices of others all have the ability to disrupt an otherwise contented life. And as a result of our heartache, we often attempt to fix our own brokenness--with disastrous results. If you've tried to heal, but keep ending up in the same place--whether the battle is in your heart or out in the open where everyone can see--The Mended Heart is for you. In this book, author Suzanne Eller tells it like it is: people throw quick fixes at you or tell you to pull yourself up by your bootstraps (whatever that means). More important, though, she shares the powerful truth of Jesus's mission as outlined in Luke 4:18-21: He came to set free all those who are oppressed and in need of mending. You don't have to fix yourself--Jesus loves you right where you are. In fact, He has already completed the work that needs to be done. The Mended Heart will encourage you to trust him, to give and receive grace, and to move ahead even stronger than before--even if others don't move with you.

Book Excerpt:

Worship has always been affected by its surrounding culture. This book examines the changing perspectives in and discussions on worship styles and practices from the Restoration to the death of Wesley, in England and Scotland. Moving beyond the text, Spinks grounds the discussion within the changing cultural and intellectual framework of the period referred to as the Enlightenment. The focus is the end of the early modern period, when already the upheaval of the English Civil War, the methods of the Cambridge Platonists, and the thinking of Descartes and Spinoza were making the period one of transition, and Newtonian thought and the thought of John Locke impacted theological thought and worship forms. It is against this framework that the worship in England and Scotland will be described and assessed. As well as published and unpublished liturgical documents, this book draws on contemporary accounts and descriptions of worship, catechisms, sermons and theological works, and contemporary diaries. Musical and architectural changes are also noted, particularly the late seventeenth century hymns of Richard Davies of Rothwell, Joseph Stennett and Benjamin Keach. This book places worship in the society which it served, and from which changes sprang. It explores the interaction of cultural thought and worship, drawing parallels between the Enlightenment period and problems of late modernity and the worship wars of the late twentieth century.

Book Excerpt:

Jeth Cavanaugh is searching for a new life along one of Pennsylvania’s mountain ridges when he stumbles upon a stable of show jumpers owned by Rob and Katie Chilton. Throw in a volatile stallion named Dynamo, and Jeth will do anything to work there. Jeth earns his living by training and showing Rob’s jumpers, but Dynamo is his primary passion. Everything changes when God enters his life—in the unconventional form of a hard slap by an old girlfriend—and ignites a new, greater passion within Jeth. But along with fervor comes fear at the undeniable evidence of God’s hand on his life. Inexplicable events, both good and bad, make him moan plaintively, “Why does God do this to me? I get the feeling I’m being set up for something.” He is, indeed. Jeth’s life is anything but predictable, much like the God he serves. The real Dynamo and his ultimate trainer emerge out of an excruciating mix of disaster and brokenness, which are never beyond the reach of redemption.
