All Saints:

Newly ordained, Michael Spurlock’s first assignment is to pastor All Saints, a struggling church with twenty-five devoted members and a mortgage well beyond its means. The best option may be to close the church rather than watch it wither any further. But when All Saints hesitantly risks welcoming a community of Karen refugees from Burma, the coming together of two groups from opposite sides of the planet into one community under God ultimately becomes the salvation of both and the true miracle of All Saints. Discover the true story that inspired the film.

Forgiven:

The Amish School Shooting, a Mother’s Love, and a Story of Remarkable Grace: When a gunman entered an Amish one-room schoolhouse, shooting ten girls, killing five, then finally taking his own life, no one could have foreseen beauty emerging from such dark ashes. But Forgiven, the story of gunman Charlie Robert’s mother Terri, is, surprisingly, a story of hope and joy–of God revealing his grace in unexpected places. From the grace that the Amish showed Terri’s family from day one to the lasting relationships Terri has built with the victims and their families, this is above all a story of love, community, and forgiveness forged from the fires of tragedy.

Congo Dawn:

When a multinational corporation with unlimited funds hires on a private military company with unbridled power, how far might they be willing to go with the planet’s ultimate “conflict mineral” up for grabs?  Especially in a Congolese rainforest where governmental accountability is only too cheaply for sale. A veteran in handling corruption and conspiracy, former Marine lieutenant Robin Duncan has never had any trouble discerning good guys from bad. But when her security team is sent to track down an insurgent killer, Robin faces a man who broke her trust years ago and discovers that gray areas extend deeper into the jungle than she anticipated. As a vicious global conspiracy emerges, run by brutal men who don’t leave witnesses alive, Robin must decide if there is anyone left she can trust. And where is God in the suffering and injustice? How is it possible followers of Yesu (Jesus) caught in the crossfire can still rejoice when everything they hold dear is ripped away?

More than a decade after the end of the cold war has chilled the Marxist rebel movements around the world, one hot spot remains-Colombia.
The inexplicable loss of three major U.S. assets draws the attention of the world to the Colombian demilitarized zone. Are the local Colombian rebels responsible? Or is a deadly Middle Eastern secret cloaked by the jungle canopy of the DMZ.
Among the contingent of politicians and media headed for the DMZ is reporter Julie Baker, whose parents had been missionaries in Colombia. Old hurts and terrors resurge as she revisits the place of her birth—and her parents’ deaths. When Julie’s own abduction by guerrillas triggers a time bomb that has been ticking under the feet of the U. S. for a decade, she is left with more questions than answers.
With the fate of two countries resting in her hands, Julie must put aside her own terror to face just what God’s call to sacrifice will mean for her past and her increasingly uncertain future.

Jana’s Journal:

Seventeen-year-old Jana Thompson is just beginning what should be the best year of her life–her senior year. It’s supposed to be amazing, but if the first few days of school are any indication, this year is going to be, well . . . pretty awful.

A self-image problem (with a nasty new attitude), a desperately cute guy with an annoying sense of civic responsibility, and a family Jana would love to wish on her worst enemy–a certain gorgeous blonde–are just the tip of the iceberg. Add a vicions inner-city gang with revenge on its mind, and she’s on a collision course with disaster. Things could get mess, so buckle up and hang on. This is Jana’s Journal, and it’s no holds barred.
