David Winkler wächst in Anchorage, Alaska, auf, ein stiller Junge mit einer Vorliebe für Schnee und die Schönheit der Eiskristalle. Manchmal kann er Ereignisse sehen, bevor sie eintreten werden – ein Mann mit einer Hutschachtel wird von einem Bus angefahren werden, er wird sich in eine Frau in einem Supermarkt verlieben. Als David davon träumt, daß seine neugeborene Tochter in einer Flut ums Leben kommt, während er versucht sie zu retten, flieht er panisch aus Cleveland, wo die Familie inzwischen lebt. Kann er so den Lauf der Dinge ändern? Mittellos, allein und ohne Gewißheit, ob seine Tochter überlebt hat – der Ohio ist tatsächlich in Cleveland über die Ufer getreten –, wohnt Winkler auf einer karibischen Insel bei einem Ehepaar mit einer Tochter, die sich um ihn kümmern. Schließlich ist es die Tochter, die ihn in die Welt zurückholt, um nach den Menschen zu suchen, die er verlassen hat. 25 Jahre nach seiner Flucht kehrt Winkler zurück nach Amerika. Anthony Doerr ist nicht nur ein Autor mit einer meisterhaften Beobachtungsgabe für Menschen und ihre Empfindungen und mit einem ungewöhnlichen Mitgefühl für die menschliche Verletzlichkeit. Seine Beschreibungen der Natur, der Landschaft, des Wassers, der Gerüche und Farben sind von einer großen Magie und überwältigenden Schönheit. Nach dem preisgekrönten Erzählungsband «Der Muschelsammler» beweist Anthony Doerr mit seinem ersten Roman, daß er ein herausragendes literarisches Talent besitzt.

"Gebt acht, dass niemand hinter der Gnade Gottes zurückbleibt" (Hebräer 12,15). Das steht auf dem Zettel, den der Pastor Kyle Idleman auf einer Lesereise zu "Not a Fan." erhält. Und Jahre nach seinem erfolgreichen Buch macht er sich erneut auf die Reise - Gottes große Gnade zu erforschen. Humorvoll und aufrichtig erzählt er aus seinem eigenen Leben, wie die Gnade darin lebendig wurde und welche Anstöße ihn bei seiner persönlichen Nachfolge bereichert haben. Dabei taucht er tief in die ganz eigene Mathematik des Evangeliums ein und inspiriert zu Lösungswegen in einer Gleichung, in der die Gnade immer größer ist.

In 1987, an IRA bomb buried Gordon Wilson and his twenty-year-old daughter beneath five feet of rubble. Gordon alone survived. And forgave. He said of the bombers, "I have lost my daughter, but I bear no grudge. . . . I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them."His words caught the media’s ear--and out of one man’s grief, the world got a glimpse of grace.Grace is the church’s great distinctive. It’s the one thing the world cannot duplicate, and the one thing it craves above all else--for only grace can bring hope and transformation to a jaded world.In What’s So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God’s love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy?Yancey sets grace in the midst of life’s stark images, tests its mettle against horrific "ungrace." Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men?Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today’s AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus’ day.In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace’s life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear?And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What’s So Amazing About Grace?

"Sie ist wie die Blumen, die sie malt. Strahlend und wunderschön." In einer kleinen Stadt am Fluss beginnt die erste Liebe. Hier findet ihr erster Kuss statt, hier fliegen die ersten Schmetterlinge. Und hier, in der Stadt am Fluss, wird Grace so oft geschlagen, bis ihre Haut blauer als der Himmel an einem scheinenden Sommertag und ihre Seele bewölkter als der Himmel an einem Regentag ist. In einer kleinen Stadt am Fluss malt Grace eine Blume. Doch sie beginnt zu verwelken, bevor das letzte Blütenblatt Platz auf dem weißen Papier gefunden hat.

The first novel by the author of the acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning #1 New York Times bestseller All the Light We Cannot See, one of the most beautiful, wise, and compelling debuts of recent times. David Winkler begins life in Anchorage, Alaska, a quiet boy drawn to the volatility of weather and obsessed with snow. Sometimes he sees things before they happen—a man carrying a hatbox will be hit by a bus; Winkler will fall in love with a woman in a supermarket. When David dreams that his infant daughter will drown in a flood as he tries to save her, he comes undone. He travels thousands of miles, fleeing family, home, and the future itself, to deny the dream. On a Caribbean island, destitute, alone, and unsure if his child has survived or his wife can forgive him, David is sheltered by a couple with a daughter of their own. Ultimately it is she who will pull him back into the world, to search for the people he left behind. Doerr's characters are full of grief and longing, but also replete with grace. His compassion for human frailty is extraordinarily moving. In luminous prose, he writes about the power and beauty of nature and about the tiny miracles that transform our lives. About Grace is heartbreaking, radiant, and astonishingly accomplished.

Often the modern grace message gives people a license to disregard the clear moral teachings of Jesus and the apostles. Churches around the globe teach a lawless grace and direct many to make choices of convenience and compromise. Consequently Christianity loses public credibility as so-called leaders of faith fall into adultery, child abuse, alcoholism, financial corruption, and many other sins. This is the great crisis of the twenty-first-century church, and respected theologian Vinson Synan says it’s time to bring it to light. Featuring perspectives of leaders from a range of cultural, pastoral, and theological backgrounds, The Truth About Grace opens the discussion to more than a dozen scholarly contributors, tackling topics such as grace and the security of the believer; grace versus works; and tongues as a manifestation of grace. Synan brings you the key voices on this hot topic, from hyper-grace critic Michael Brown to Singaporean pastor Joseph Prince, whom some consider a leading voice in the hyper-grace movement. The Truth About Grace will help you discern the unbiblical excesses in the modern grace message while growing in understanding of the true nature and purpose of grace.

For centuries Indigenous Nations and people endured a holocaust of unimaginable proportions, much of the suffering and betrayal coming from those who claimed to be representing the Christian God. If we desire reconciliation and friendship with Native people and Nations, how do we build those bridges? Knowing that historically we have not loved our first neighbors well, how do we now communicate grace? Can we learn from the tragedies and failures of the past? Are we willing to pave the way of reconciliation with our tears? These questions and more we ponder throughout this book. What we are learning is the gift of many friends representing many tribes and cultures who have graciously and generously shared their stories and their hearts with us. Now we pass along some of our gleanings to you. We hope it will set you to thinking and even unpacking your baggage, to sort it out and pack again-wherever you might be going in this life. God help us all to travel light and may we always move to the music of God's extravagant grace. About the Farrants... We are simply two very ordinary people given the extraordinary privilege of spending time with people of other cultures who have been and are still our teachers. We are not the Indigenous voice. They have voices of their own. We hope the offering of this little book will encourage you to listen to those voices. Currently, Bruce serves as coordinator of Native American/First Nations Ministries with Mission to North America. We make our home in Maryville, TN, just west of what the Cherokee call the Shakonohey, Land of the Blue Smoke (Great Smoky Mountains). God has blessed us with four wonderful children and eleven grandchildren. Contact Us: www.onechurchonetribe.com or [email protected]

Do you want to feel better, more successful, and be a better parent, spouse, or friend? Then maybe you should read Frank's book. It might change your life. Grace takes religion and psychotherapy away from the experts, and gives them back to you, where they belong. That's what Jesus did to begin with; that's what Grace does now. Grace turns most church teachings inside out, putting you in the driver's seat, letting you experience the miracles promised by the New Testament not in a supernatural way, but biologically. It's a way to put zest and enthusiasm in your life! Grace offers step by step instructions on how to pray effectively, and what happens when you do. You'll learn THE WAY as Jesus taught it a real lesson in biology. Grace is not easy as pie or pie in the sky when you die. Grace is work, hard work, but the satisfaction it brings will astonish you. Grace is the scientific application of the three teachings of Jesus-Love, Honesty, and Nonjudgment. Give it a try and see for yourself. The experience of true Grace is more than worth the effort.

Discover the True Meaning of Being Blessed It’s not easy being a woman. The demands and expectations of us, and those we place on ourselves, can be overwhelming. While trying to navigate this thing called “life,” have you ever longed for a close friend, confidant, or mentor to walk alongside you and encourage you in Biblical womanhood? Debbie Morris did. And yet even as a young minister’s wife, she found herself without someone to fill this all-important role. So she turned to the Bible. Biblical women such as Eve, Sarah, and Miriam had always fascinated her. But now they also became her friends, sisters, and teachers. Through their stories, the Holy Spirit revealed how their lives—both joys and struggles—weren’t that much different from ours today and how they can teach women today to be a grace-filled, life-giving woman of God. In The Blessed Woman, Debbie invites you to learn from these women as well. As she shares her own stories and the stories of discerning women in the Bible, she addresses topics such as overcoming insecurity, finding purpose, establishing priorities, letting go, and waiting. The Blessed Woman reminds us how God longs for every woman to experience His tenderness—and to know the true meaning of being blessed.

There are many things that we all believe yet do not experience. We all want victory, yet few find it. One of our greatest frustrations is that much of what we believe really doesn’t work. Too often we spend our lives struggling with the same issues. The feeling of defeat can be agonizing. It is as if we are caught in a maze of formulas and rules. We know there’s something missing, but we’re not sure what. In our search for truth, we lose our way among the dos and don’ts of religion. Christians everywhere have been missing the truth about grace--and the result is defeat and frustration. In this life-changing book, Dr. James Richards unfolds the mystery of grace. You will find the power to overcome instead of repeatedly seeking forgiveness. You will conquer personal issues instead of enduring them. You will discover God’s power of effortless change instead of your best effort to change. This reality will transform everything you are experiencing with God. Grace: The Power to Change will bring you into the dimension of Christian living that Jesus called “easy and light.” This is a must-read for every believer!

Straightforward, often lyrical prose and a sympathetic yet clear-eyed historical perspective characterize Wood's first novel following the successful trilogy that began with The Train to Estelline. This time, she focuses on four families living on the 900 block of Pine Street in the East Texas town of Cold Springs in 1944. As World War II rages in Europe, Grace Gillian, a 38-year-old high school English teacher with a "wild Irish streak," is at the center of things on the home front. Grace's husband, Bucy, has recently abandoned her, unleashing a torrent of local gossip, and much of the novel turns on the question of which future Grace will choose will it be with the bereaved husband of a recently deceased neighbor, a handsome sergeant she meets on a train or her own estranged husband? Equally affecting are the stories of Bobby Moore, an earnest teenager with poor eyesight who desperately wants to participate in the war effort, and Bobby's seemingly mismatched parents, his oh-so-Southern father, Robert, and his outsider Yankee mother, Barbara. Passion pops up in unusual places, even as the war years offer the opportunity for everyone to finally grow up. As the war drags to an end, the distant horrors of battle are having a profound effect on the town, and insanity is in the air, changing lives irrevocably. Like a good parent, Wood stands back and lets the sturdy characters of her smalltown novel discover just what's important. Despite the sadness of loss and the bitterness of hard-won knowledge, the novel's conclusion is jubilantly triumphant, as satisfying as a snapshot of V-E Day. (Apr. 3)Forecast: Wood's move to Dutton from the smaller U. of North Texas Press, which published her Estelline trilogy, should bring added attention and sales to this increasingly popular author.
