Midnight Three Women at the Hour of Reckoning Book Excerpt:

Exquisite and nuanced in its storytelling, Midnight crafts intimate, humanizing portraits of Jane Austen, Mary Shelley, and Joan of Arc that ask us to behold the women behind the icons. Midnight is a study in the courage of three women—Jane Austen, Mary Shelley, and Joan of Arc. Jane Austen was poor in 1802, unmarried and homeless. She had outlines, ideas, and first drafts of her future novels but no place to sit and write them. It is at this bleak moment that she receives an offer of marriage from a rich man. Midnight takes us to the hour of her decision between financial security and her writing life. When sixteen-year-old Mary Godwin elopes to France with the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, she scoffs at the cost—life as an outcast. Together they travel through Europe, reading and writing, but Midnight finds her alone, eight years later, pacing a terrace overlooking the Italian shore, watching for Shelley to sail home over stormy seas in a shaky boat. Joan of Arc, imprisoned in chains, kept her faith for a long year. Be brave, daughter of God, her saints had whispered, you will be saved—and she believes it, until she is taken to be burned at the stake. Midnight is the story of Joan’s final days, between her terrified recantation and her heroic return to the stake.

The Plum Trees A Novel Book Excerpt:

A poignant tale about one woman’s quest to recover her family’s history, and a story of loss and survival during the Holocaust. Consie is home for a funeral when she stumbles upon a family letter sent from Germany in 1945, which contains staggering news: Consie’s great-uncle Hermann, who was transported to Auschwitz with his wife and three daughters, might have escaped. This seems improbable to Consie. Did people escape from Auschwitz? Could her great-uncle have been among them? What happened to Hermann? Did anyone know? These questions are at the root of Consie’s excavation of her family’s history as she seeks, seventy years after the liberation of Auschwitz, to discover what happened to Hermann. The Plum Trees follows Consie as she draws on oral testimonies, historical records, and more to construct a visceral account of the lives of Hermann, his wife, and their daughters from the happy days in prewar Czechoslovakia through their internment in Auschwitz and the end of World War II. The Plum Trees is a powerful, intimate reckoning with the past.

A Commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews Book Excerpt:

A statement of the books aims: To return Christians to biblical norms. To get them thinking about the old paths and what was considered the whole truth. To encourage Christians to pursue Bible study by giving them helps such as an understanding of some basic NT Greek. To set forth the wonder of the Lord Jesus Christ as revealed to us as our High Priest and Saviour. Its special merits: Verse-by-verse and, often, word-by-word comments on a book of the Bible that usually receives little, if any, church, Bible study, and preaching attention. It looks closely at the Greek words used (of the eclectic [WH] variety and the TR). It examines in detail many of the fundamentals of the Christian faith and challenges doctrines and actions held by some professing Christians today. It reproduces many non-Hebrews scriptures that are quoted so that readers do not have to look them up (this is a time-saver). It has many additional questions at the end of a section to aid, stimulate, and guide the minds of Christians in their pursuit of the truth. It includes the names and dates of many historical figures from theology, hymnology, philosophy, and science. It has a set of appendices at the back on various topics. They are mainly from the Hebrews commentary so one does not have to search through the book for them.
