Book of the Week: Healing Hearts

by Beth Wiseman

Three hope-filled stories about second chances, trusting your heart, and the power of forgiveness.

Healing Hearts—Empty-nesters Levina Lapp and her husband Naaman have no children under their roof for the first time in 30 years. When Naaman leaves to visit cousins in Ohio, Levina never expected him to be gone a year. Now that he's back, will they be able to move beyond this estrangement and rekindle the fire of the love they once shared?

A Change of Heart—Leah is a writer in a community that does not encourage such fruitless endeavors. She lacks the skills necessary to be a good Amish fraa—cooking, cleaning, quilting, and gardening. Aaron is aware of Leah's short-comings, but his heart is captured by this spirited young woman. Will Leah's role as an Amish wife and mother force her to set aside her creative life—or will Aaron make an offer she never dreamed was possible?

A Choice to Forgive—Lydia has loved two men in her life. Daniel, who disappeared one Christmas Eve long ago, leaving only a note saying he wanted to live in the Englisch world. And Elam, Daniel's brother, to whom she had been happily married for 15 years. When Elam dies, Lydia gives up on ever loving again. But she is shocked when Daniel wants to return to the Order and her life. Is there enough forgiveness in her heart to overlook the past and move into a future that could fulfill her dreams?

Crimond House Publications

We thought it was time to bring you up to date with what's been happening at Crimond House Publications, our publishing imprint. We've had a busy summer typesetting and proofreading and have several exciting reprints coming to the market this autumn in our Crimond Classics range.

The Crises of the Christ is G. Campbell Morgan's magnus opus. John Phillips called it "the author's best work." It takes a look at the key points in the life of Christ: His birth, baptism, temptation, trasfiguration, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension. Warren Wiersbe said, "Whenever you find a book by Morgan, buy it and study it."

We have two reprints from David Baron. Baron (1857-1926) was a converted Jew and always had a heart of the Lord's earthly people and the land of Israel. We are reprinting The Servant of Jehovah, his commmentary on Isaiah 53, and Rays of Messiah's Glory, a portrait of Christ from the old testament.

Christ As Seen In The Offerings
is R.F. Kingscote's
devotional study on the person of Christ in the Levitical offerings, based on notes taken on lectures delivered.

Finally, we are releasing a comilation of missionary stories from around the world, A Great Door and Effectual, featuring
great men and women of faith, such as John Knox, William Tyndale, Mary Slessor, David Livingstone, John Wesley and others.

Book of the Week: The Incomparable Christ

by John Stott.

There are many ideas of Jesus on the overcrowded shelves of the world's religious markets. Can we ever know which is the true likeness? In a masterly survey, John Stott examines the New Testament witness to Christ, the church's portrayal of Christ, and the influence of Christ on individuals. Finally he turns to the book of Revelation to ask what Jesus Christ should mean to us today.
