Title: World View Publisher: New Growth Press Publish Date: November 6, 2017 ISBN: 978-1945270833 Source: LitFuse Blog Tours Pages: 208 Purchase: Amazon About The Book How could our world be different if Christians were recognized for not only speaking the truth, but also demonstrating mercy? What would our lives be like if we reacted to our common culture with not just biblical facts, but also grace and compassion? For more than 25 years, Marvin Olasky has offered this kind of viewpoint in his columns as the Editor-in-Chief of World Magazine, the leading news magazine written with a Christian perspective. In this collection of far-ranging columns, Olasky’s commentary on world events and affairs, as well as his own personal interactions, encourages readers to respond with both grace and truth in every encounter. A leading voice for standing for biblical truth in the public square, Olasky also believes Christians should incorporate the biblical virtues of humility, kindness, and mercy in all of life. His call for biblical values to include both truth and mercy makes his voice stand out in a world that often falsely divides those goals and settles for a poor imitation of the robust Christianity described in Scripture. These… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions VBT: Weddings at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard

Goddess Fish Promotions VBT: Weddings at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard

Excerpt When Rosetta sat down at the eck table beside Truman, the light in his eyes made her hold her breath. “Honey-girl, if your new bishop allows us to marry, when do you want to tie the knot?” he murmured as he grasped her hand. “I fell head-over- heels for you the moment I met you last summer, making dinner in that big kitchen—” “Jah, the way to a man’s heart has always been through his stomach,” Rosetta teased. Her heart was hammering in her chest, and she suddenly felt like a tongue-tied teenager. It still surprised her, the way Truman made over her and waxed so romantic, considering he was somewhat younger than she was. Truman smiled. “I have no fears of going hungry after we marry,” he murmured, rubbing his thumb over her hand. “But my clock’s ticking. I’m thirty and I want a family—and I can’t wait to watch you grow big with our children, Rosetta.” Rosetta held her breath. She, too, had dreamed of mothering a large family, but the years after losing her first fiancé and then caring for her aging parents had slipped by. Even though God granted children to women who were older… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions VBB: The Power of Prayer by Lorana Hoopes

Excerpt: What does he mean he can’t marry me? This had to be some kind of joke. My shoulders slumped forward and my knuckles holding the phone turned white. “That’s it? That’s all? What does this mean? What am I supposed to tell everyone out there?” There were nearly two hundred people waiting in the sanctuary. Shaina lowered her head, unable to meet my eyes and bit her lip again. My eyes narrowed to slits as I crossed the room and grabbed Shaina’s arm, eliciting a yelp of either surprise or pain. I didn’t know which, and at that moment, I didn’t care. “What aren’t you telling me?” Her eyes narrowed to slits. “There’s someone else, isn’t there? Who is it? If you know Shaina, you have to tell me.” When Shaina lifted her head, tears glistened in her eyes. “I’m so sorry, Callie.” I dropped my arm and stared at Shaina. My mouth hung open like a barn door as I tried to understand what she was saying. She’s sorry? What does she have to be sorry for? It’s not like her fiancé left her. It’s not like—Anger flared up in me as the realization set in. The world… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions VBT + Interview: Lake Of Sins: Hangman’s Army by L. S. O’Dea

Excerpt: Hugh Trinity didn’t reply, but her back was straighter than before.  He was getting on her nerves.  Good because she sure got on his.  She was nothing but trouble, an attractive know-it-all who refused to listen to anyone.  His hand met the end of the rope.  It was still a long way to the ground.   Jackson waited alongside the building with Tim.  They were both flat against the wall, trying not to be seen.   “Drop.  You’ll be fine.”  Her voice was soft, no longer acidic and mocking. He couldn’t deal with her being kind to him.  They’d done so well bickering.  The trip had been fast and he hadn’t thought much about the danger.  “I’m an Almighty.  My kind doesn’t always land on their feet.”   “Let go,” she said, a hint of anger in her voice. “I will.”  His hands tightened on the rope.  A fall like this could break something.   “Now,” she snapped.  “Or I’ll kick you in the face and say a prayer that you land on your head.” Her foot waved above his head.  He wouldn’t put it past her to do what she threatened.  She’d probably enjoy it.  He closed his… Read more »
