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.

Award-winning author Philip Yancey takes you for a soul-searching look at two of Christianity’s most important topics WHAT’S SO AMAZING ABOUT GRACE? In this critically acclaimed, bestselling book, Philip Yancey explores the church’s great distinctive—grace—at street level. If grace is God’s love for the undeserving, 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? Offering compelling, true portraits of grace’s life-changing power, Yancey searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What’s So Amazing About Grace? WHERE IS GOD WHEN IT HURTS? If there is a loving God, then why is it that ... ? You’ve heard that question, perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue of pain. In this award-winning book, Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain—physical, emotional, and spiritual—and helps us understand why we suffer. Where Is God When It Hurts? will speak to those for whom life sometimes just doesn’t make sense. And it will help equip anyone who wants to reach out to someone in pain but doesn’t know what to say.

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.

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]
