  • Maybe God Is Like That Too

    Every child wonders where God lives or what God is like. In Maybe God Is Like That Too, a young boy asks his grandma where God is in their city. She invites him to pay attention to where he sees the fruit of the Spirit. Where love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are, there too is God. The boy sees God in the kindness of a doorman holding the door for a man using a wheelchair, in the patience of his teacher helping him tie his shoes, and in the love, faithfulness, and gentleness of his grandma. An ordinary day in his city opens this young boy’s eyes to God’s Spirit at work all around him Schipper’s cheerful, screenprintlike artwork capably evokes the energy of a moderately gritty, moderately diverse cityscape. – Publishers Weekly Highly recommended for family, preschool, elementary school, Sunday School, and community library picture book collections. – Midwest Book Review A wonderful story to help illustrate the humanity of Christ Jesus as told to us in Philippians. – Katie Barrett Todd, Union Presbyterian Seminary alumna, writer for Lectionary Links.

    A new story of common wisdom from the bestselling author of The Traveler’s Gift. Orange Beach, Alabama is a simple town filled with simple people. But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problems – marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses. Fortunately, when things look the darkest – a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up. An elderly man with white hair, of indiscriminate age and race, wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and leather flip flops carrying a battered old suitcase, Jones is a unique soul. Communicating what he calls a little perspective, Jones explains that he has been given a gift of noticing things that others miss. Your time on this earth is a gift to be used wisely, he says. Don’t squander your words or your thoughts. Consider even the simplest action you take, for your lives matter beyond measure-and they matter forever. Jones speaks to that part in everyone that is yearning to understand why things happen and what we can do about it. Like The Traveler’s Gift, The Noticer is a unique narrative is a blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration.

  • Great Divorce

    $15.99

    C.S. Lewis takes us on a profound journey through both heaven and hell in this engaging allegorical tale. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis introduces us to supernatural beings who will change the way we think about good and evil. In The Great Divorce C.S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer, in a dream, finds himself in a bus which travels between Hell and Heaven. This is the starting point for an extraordinary meditation upon good and evil which takes issue with William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
