Description : “The way you’re yanking on that bolt, you’ll break it off and then we’ll have an awful time getting this radiator off.” John regarded the grease-blackened wrench that lay in the grip of his strong hand and cast a tentative smile at Lloyd. “I guess I am taking my frustrations out on your tractor. I’m supposed to be fixing it, not making it worse.” “That’s right. I can bust ‘em up just fine without anybody’s help,” Lloyd said with a laugh. “Did I tell you how I managed to wreck this thing?” John Connor had already heard the story and he wasn't in the mood for Lloyd's chatter. There was hidden hurt wrenching at John's soul, continually leading his mind away from the task at hand. Laugh and cry with the Unrefined Connor family—slaves to the farm and mechanic work that is their means of survival, chained by guilt and fear, trapped by despair and worry. Unrefined is the tale of a three-generation family pummeled by tragedy beyond the common hardships of the Great Depression. Some will come to see their difficulties as a refining process. None will survive unscathed—if they survive at all. Who among them will rise above the hopelessness? Can a little spark of faith and some bold determination make a difference to all of them?
Description : God is moving in the hearts of powerful leaders in all the Colombian fighting factions, and peaceful meetings are now taking place in Havana, Cuba. Marxists guerillas, right-wing paramilitary, and the Colombian government each have their own agenda. Who would have guessed a meeting of the minds would take place under the helpful auspices of communist Cuba? And that these battle-scarred leaders would give reporters and missionaries the opportunity to challenge some of their core philosophies and even pray with them? During the often intense negotiations, it becomes obvious that even the most hardened individuals can have a change of heart. Previously seen only as men to be feared, these powerful leaders are now turning to the only one who can provide lasting peace – the Lord. The Stendals have witnessed Army generals having daily prayer and distributing Bibles to their troops, guerrilla commanders requesting and receiving prayer for healing, paramilitary commanders asking their many victims, one by one, to forgive them, and many other powerful demonstrations of what the Lord does through those willing to love their enemies. God’s agenda is winning, and we watch in awe.

Description : Fear is the greatest block to the freedom of love and life. Christ came to bring freedom from the fear of suffering and death. What is the antidote to fear? It is love! “Love casts out fear.” (1 John 4:18) The scripture goes on to tell us, “The one who fears is not perfected in love.” In other words, when God’s children mature in love they have less fear. When fear grows, it drives out love. “Fearless love” means less fear and more love. It is the essence of courage. This book has teaching and stories regarding Biblical martyrdom, Islamic martyrdom and Christian persecution. But do not be intimidated. These are powerful subjects and they are written with the intent to bless you and change your life forever. It is first written for Christians who are looking for purpose and hope in these days of worldwide terrorism and second for Muslims seeking the heart of God in true worship. Our hope is that the fruit of this book will produce a fearless love to help you enjoy the journey of an obedient life that God intends for all His children. You’ll learn: · About basic Muslim beliefs. · How to reach out to Muslims. · How to share the gospel with Muslims. · How God gives faith that overcomes the fear of suffering and death. · How a close relationship with Jesus Christ gives us fearless love. · How to battle the global war on terror from the spiritual battlefield. The Biblical teaching of Christian martyrdom is a call to intentional, purposeful living and a bold witness of faith. These fifty true stories of courageous Christians will bring encouragement, inspiration, and hope in the coming days of terrorism in America.
