In Vow of Justice by Lynette Eason, FBI Special Agent Lincoln St. John is living his own personal nightmare. When the woman he loves, Allison Radcliffe, is killed, he devotes himself to tracking down the killers and making them pay for their crimes. He expected it to be a challenge. What he never expected was to find Allison very much alive shortly after her “murder”. As his anger and hurt mix with relief, Lincoln isn’t sure how he’s supposed to feel. One thing he does know for sure is that he and Allison will have to work together to stop a killer before she dies a second time - this time for good.

Research scientist Caitlyn Lindsey is convinced someone is taking out her team one by one in Lisa Harris’ romantic suspense novel Deadly Intentions. First, a friend and research partner was killed in a home invasion. Three moths ago, her boss died in a suspicious car accident. Four days ago, another partner supposedly committed suicide. And now Caitlyn herself has miraculously survived a hit and run. Afraid for her life with nowhere to run, she reaches out to one of the victims’ husbands, Detective Josh Solomon. Though initially skeptical about Caitlyn’s theory, Josh soon realizes the attack that took his wife’s life was anything but random. Now the two of them must discover the truth about who is after Caitlyn’s team - and what their end game is - before it’s too late.

A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson follows Anne Norris, who moved to Savannah, Georgia for a fresh start. Now her pirate-tour business is flagging and paying the rent requires more than wishful thinking. When she discovers evidence of a shipwreck off the coast of Tybee Island, she knows it could be just the boon she needs to stay afloat. She takes her findings to local museum director Carter Hale for confirmation, but things do not go as planned. Carter is fascinated with the wreck, the discovery of which could open the door to his dream job at a prestigious museum. But convincing Anne to help him fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle is no easy task, and working with Carter means that Anne will have to do the one thing she swore she’d never do again - trust a man.

Phil Robertson believes that little by little, generation by generation, America has allowed the lines of morality, decency, and virtue to be erased - that our values have disappeared as we began to believe the lies that God is dead, truth is relative, and unity is impossible. These lies have brought discord, division and protest, but Phil also believes that things can change. Writing with captivating storytelling and unflinching honesty, Phil shows how to make America a God-honoring nation once more - by dropping the ten central lies that rule our day and taking up the ten truths that will bring peace of mind, harmony, and prosperity back to our country. The Theft of America’s Soul by Phil Robertson is a wake-up call for all who desire to see our nation thrive, and it’s also an invitation to experience the life-giving, peace-filling, wholly-transforming love of God.

Among the movies we added this week were a war-themed Christmas film and additional titles in the Love Comes Softly saga, based on the book series by Janette Oke.

Love’s Abiding Joy - Following a treacherous journey west, Missie and her husband have set up a homestead where they’ve begun to raise a family. And now that a railroad line connects the states, Missie’s father is able to visit. But when the joyful reunion is interrupted by tragedy, the faith and love of this family is once again challenged in a story you and your family will never forget.

Love’s Unfolding Dream - Missie’s adopted daughter Belinda is determined to become a doctor, but despite her dedication and ability, Doc Jackson believes women should stay at home - and so does Belinda’s suitor, Drew Simpson. But with faith and hard work, Belinda begins winning the hearts and minds of everyone around her, including a wealthy dowager, who just might help make Belinda’s dreams come true in this satisfying family drama.

Love Takes Wing - Still as feisty as ever, Belinda Simpson is now a doctor in a small Missouri town where an unknown plague is spreading fear and resentment among the townspeople. One local resident thinks the illness was spread from the town orphanage and wants to see it shut down. Belinda struggles to make sense of the disease and God’s plan for the beleaguered town - but with the support of Lee Owens (the town’s handsome young blacksmith) and her best friend, Belinda learns that if she can rely on faith and love everything else may just fall into place.

Love Finds a Home - Dr. Belinda Owens is a young woman with a loving husband and a rewarding career. But when Belinda’s pregnant friend Annie comes to stay, Belinda must come to grips with her own inability to conceive. And when Annie’s meddlesome mother-in-law gives Belinda advice about her medical practice, Belinda looks to a higher power for strength, wisdom and even diplomacy in this riveting installment of the popular, uplifting films about the enduring power of love and faith.

Radio - For anyone who ever had a dream and everyone with the courage to stand up for what they believe, comes the real life story of Robert ‘Radio’ Kennedy.

Together with Head Coach Harold Jones, Radio inspired a football team to become champions and a town to open their hearts. Heroic performances from Academy Award Winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Ed Harris will have you laughing, crying, and cheering for the man who proved the world’s greatest victories happen in real life.

You will witness the world changing events of His life and thrill to His teachings as you walk with Him through the cities of Judea. You will behold the miracles of divine love and the power of His deep compassion.

The Gospel of John: Experiencing Christ As Your Life - Join Bob George in this chapter by chapter exposition of the gospel of John. Realize why Christ Himself is real life and how He personally offers hope that you can discover a meaningful life as a Christian, overcome fear with the assurance of eternal life, experience joy during adversity, and more.

Classic Christianity - Like so many believers, Bob George began his Christian life in love with the Savior only to end up years later disappointed and unfulfilled. Drawing on his own struggles and years of teaching and counseling experience, Bob cuts straight to the heart of the issues that cause so many believers to start out in excited enthusiasm, only to end up merely “going through the motions” of the Christian life. In Classic Christianity, Bob shows us the way back to the life Jesus provided for us when He set us free from the bondage of the law, teaching us to live in the newness of life led by His Spirit.

We’ve also added books from the Anne of Green Gables series by L. M. Montgomery.

Anne of Windy Poplars - Anne has taken her first job away from Green Gables and soon discovered that her real work lay in dealing head-on with the proud Pringle family. But she quickly became the whole town’s champion and confidante, and would have appeared almost meddlesome - if she weren’t as spirited and lovable as ever.

Anne’s House of Dreams - Anne’s own true love Gilbert was finally a doctor and now they no longer needed to live apart. They married quite simply and began life together in their own little dream house where Anne met new neighbors, made new friends, and solved new problems. But she was still the same Anne - spirited and full of surprises.

Anne of Ingleside - Anne, now a mother of five, presided over a happy, lively home. Mrs. Doctor for some fifteen years, Anne suddenly began to worry that perhaps her adored Gilbert no longer loved her. But how could he not? After all, she may have been older, bu she was still the lively, irrepressible, irreplaceable redhead - the wonderful Anne of Green Gables, grown up.

Rainbow Valley - Anne’s wonderful, lively children found a special place all their own. Rainbow Valley was the perfect spot to play, to dream and to make the most unusual friends, like the Merediths. They were two girls and two boys who had no mother. What they did have was a minister father who was looking for a wife but so far had found nothing but heartbreak. Between the minister courting a young spinster and the escapades of the restless children, the town was bubbling with scandal. But in the end, the warmth and laughter of Anne of Green Gables taught all an unforgettable lesson of love.

Rilla of Ingleside - Anne’s children were almost grown up, except for pretty, high-spirited Rilla. Rilla wasn’t yet fifteen, and she was still looking forward to her first dance and her first kiss. But undreamed-of challenges awaited irrepressible Rilla when the happy world of Ingleside was endangered by a fearful far-off war. Rilla must join her courageous family in a dramatic struggle that would change her life and leave Rilla no longer a girl, but a proud woman.

Think of the moment you last experienced God. Do you know him that closely in this moment? Truly experiencing the love of God gives us a taste of his goodness and his love for us, but often those moments are fleeting. We get distracted by life. Our awareness and understanding fade while our longing to experience him that way again increases. In Longing for God, you can begin to fill that longing by developing your capacity to receive and respond to God's love. Spiritual formation is the process through which one's inner self is opened to the work of the Holy Spirit, who forms us into the image of the Son. Here Richard J. Foster and Gayle D. Beebe, both experienced leaders in spiritual formation, introduce you to people from the past who have known God deeply. Each person helps you to grasp one of the seven primary paths to intimacy with God that have been developed throughout Christian history.
