    • I Am Restored

      Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds–sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression–that threatened to tear it all apart.

    • Nerves Of Steel Young Readers Edition

      $16.99

      The amazing story of pilot Tammie Jo Shults, adapted for young readers! Tammie Jo worked hard, had faith, stayed true to herself, and overcame every obstacle on her journey to becoming a navy pilot. Years later, those lessons served her well as she was put in the right place at the right time to safely land a crippled plane and save 148 lives.

      Tammie Jo Shults grew up wanting to be a pilot. She worked hard but faced many obstacles and challenges along the way that threatened to derail her dreams. Doing the next right thing kept her spirit alive as she persevered to find her special calling-to serve God and the world around her.

      Tammie Jo’s path eventually led her to join the navy, where she became one of the first women to fly the F/A-18 Hornet. Her specialized flight training in fighter aircraft honed her skills to a razor’s edge. After eight years, she left the military, flew for the forest service in California fighting forest fires for a season, and then went to work for Southwest Airlines flying Boeing 737s.

      Tammie Jo wasn’t scheduled for flight 1380 on the morning of April 17, 2018. In fact, she and her husband, Dean, also a Southwest pilot, had traded trips so she could attend their son’s track meet. Then the unthinkable happened. A catastrophic engine failure in her Boeing 737 caused an explosion that severed hydraulic and fuel lines, tore away sections of the plane, punctured a window, and took a woman’s life. In the midst of the emergency, Tammie Jo stayed calm. She wrestled the crippled plane safely to the ground, and in doing so, saved many lives. No doubt God had prepared her and placed her right where she needed to be that day.

      Nerves of Steel (Young Readers Edition) is for all young readers who work hard to chase their dreams and are excited for the adventure ahead.

    • 55 Days : Memoirs Of Life In God’s Hands

      $15.99

      It has been said there are no coincidences in life. The Bible tells us God’s timing is always perfect, even when we can’t recognize it. The death of the author’s wife revealed this clearly to him. This is the true story of how a young soldier, attracted to a young woman because of the car she drove, quickly fell in love with her beautiful soul and how it led to an incredible forty-seven-year journey together filled with love, hardships, travel and a never ending spiritual growth. Tom Glenn’s wife died just fifty-five days after her first ER visit. As he wrote their story, Tom came to realize that he had spontaneously proposed to her, without benefit of a ring or prior planning, by taking a giant leap on July 20, 1969, just fifty-five days after their first date. As they watched the lunar landing and listened to Neil Armstrong’s words, Tom found himself saying, Speaking of giant leaps would you marry me? She accepted and their journey together began. Biblical numerologists believe five means hand and fifty-five means God’s hands. This is the story of two lives lived in God’s hands which led to ongoing spiritual growth.

    • Through My Fathers Eyes

      $29.99

      Many have written about Billy Graham, the evangelist. This is the first book about Billy Graham, the father, written from the perspective of a son who knew him best.

      As a beloved evangelist and a respected man of God, Billy Graham’s stated purpose in life never wavered: to help people find a personal relationship with God through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This was a calling that only increased over time, and Billy embraced it fully throughout his active ministry and beyond. Yet Billy pursued his life’s work, as many men do, amid a similarly significant calling to be a loving husband and father.

      While most people knew Billy Graham as America’s Pastor, Franklin Graham knew him in a different way, as a Dad. And while present and future generations will come to their own conclusions about Billy Graham and the legacy that his commitment to Christ has left behind, no one can speak more insightfully or authoritatively on that subject than a son who grew up in the shadow of his father’s life and the examples of his father’s love. This vulnerable book is a look at both Billy Graham the evangelist and Billy Graham the father, and the impact he had on a son who walked in his father’s steps while also becoming his own man, leading ministries around the world, all of it based on the foundational lessons his father taught him.

      My father left behind a testimony to God, says Franklin, a legacy not buried in a grave but still pointing people to a heaven-bound destiny. The Lord will say to my father, and to all who served Him obediently ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ (Matthew 25:21).

    • Prophet With Honor

      $29.99

      A Prophet with Honor celebrates one of the 20th century’s great luminaries. This engaging and comprehensive book will give both religious and secular readers a better understanding of the most successful evangelist in modern history, and the movement he led for over fifty years.

      This book makes a vital contribution to the Billy Graham legacy and allows us to understand why his words, actions, and personality have endeared him to popes and preachers, kings and presidents, and millions of Christians in virtually every nation and culture around the world for more than a half-century.

      A Prophet with Honor is the biography Graham himself requested and liked for its sympathetic but frank approach. In this carefully documented, eminently fair, and gracefully written account, William Martin raises and answers key questions about Graham’s character, contributions, and influence on the world religious scene. Tracing Graham’s life and ministry from his rural and religious roots in North Carolina to his place as the elder statesman of American evangelicalism, tracing both his triumphs and his tribulations, Martin shows the multidimensional character of the man who has become one of the most admired persons in the world. This engaging and comprehensive book offers a detailed understanding of the most successful evangelist in modern history, and the movement he led for over 50 years.

    • Rock The Road And The Rabbi

      $26.99

      As a lifetime student of scripture, Kathie Lee Gifford has been traveling to Israel since she was 17 years old. She even missed her high school graduation so she could attend the first Jerusalem Conference on Biblical Prophecy in 1971.

      In a continuation of that love for this astounding land of faith, The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi is an examination of a decades-long desire to know more and understand more than the typical Sunday School teaching so prevalent in our churches today.

      With a father who was Jewish, Kathie Lee has always felt what she calls, a deep resonance in my very being for the Jewish people and Land of the Covenant-Israel.

      But it wasn’t until she started studying the original texts in Hebrew and Greek and actually hiking the land herself with teachers who taught the messianic rabbinical way, that she finally began to find what her soul had been longing for.

      Something profound happens when one follows along the ancient paths in the actual places that Jesus taught, healed, lived, died, was resurrected and ascended into Heaven. He is indeed the Rock, the Rabbi whom we follow on the Road, and when we are introduced to the mysteries of the Word by teachers who are actually trained in the ancient rabbinical way, radical transformation begins to renew our hearts and minds.

      As Kathie Lee shares her transformative experience, readers will also be introduced to her teachers on the journey, Ray Vander Laan, Rod Van Solkema, and Rabbi Jason Sobel, a Messianic Jewish Rabbi who has been opening hearts and minds around the world with his historical analysis and eye-opening revelations. The book will include pictures of the actual sites, and stories both old and new of what happened there.

      At the end of each chapter Rabbi Sobel takes the reader even deeper into understanding Hebrew culture, language, and the means of connection that opens up an understanding of faith and heritage like never before.

    • Where I End

      $12.99

      Those who are hidden in Jesus, though they suffer, will discover a more beautiful ending–or should I say beginning–than they ever could imagine.

      Katherine Clark was just an average wife and mother with two young children when she was in a tragic playground accident in late May 2009. A little boy playing on the jungle gym fell and landed on Kate’s head, knocking her over and snapping her neck. Kate was paralyzed from the neck down. The doctors diagnosed her quadriplegic and said she would never walk again.

      This terrifying prognosis could have been the end of the story. But instead, God chose to work a profound miracle in Kate’s life and in the life of her family.

      Where I End tells the incredible story. Kate describes how God’s presence carried her through the trying journey of re-learning to walk, both physically and spiritually. Throughout, she shares the deep theological truths that sustained her as she and her family traveled this difficult road.

      For fans of Ann Voskamp, Sheldon Vanauken, and Joni Eareckson Tada, Where I End offers hope, encouragement, and a timely reminder of who Jesus is: God with us. In a reflective, literary style, Kate invites readers to see pain and suffering within the context of God’s loving, tender, powerful care–and there find hope.

    • Madison Park : A Place Of Hope

      $24.99

      Welcome to Madison Park, a small community in Alabama founded by freed slaves in 1880. And meet Eric Motley, a native son who came of age in this remarkable place where constant lessons in self-determination, hope, and unceasing belief in the American dream taught him everything he needed for his journey to the Oval Office as a Special Assistant to President George W. Bush.

      Eric grew up among people whose belief was to give and never turn away from your neighbor’s need. There was Aunt Shine, the goodly matriarch who cared so much about young Motley’s schooling that she would stand up in a crowded church and announce Eric’s progress or his shortcomings. There was Old Man Salery, who secretly siphoned gasoline from his beat-up car into the Motley’s tank at night. There were Motley’s grandparents, who bought books for Eric they couldn’t afford, spending the last of their seed money. And there was Reverend Brinkley, a man of enormous faith and simple living. It was said that whenever the Reverend came your way, light abounded. Life in Madison Park wasn’t always easy or fair, and Motley reveals personal and heartbreaking stories of racial injustice and segregation. But Eric shows how the community taught him everything he needed to know about love and faith.

      This charming, engaging, and deeply inspiring memoir will help you remember that we can create a world of shared values based on love and hope. It is a story that reveals the amazing power of faith in God and each other. If you’re in search of hope during troubled times, look no further than Madison Park.

    • Chasing Grace : What The Quarter Mile Has Taught Me About God And Life

      $24.99

      For as long as I can remember, life has been measured in seconds. The fewer, the better.

      Most people equate success with having more, but Sanya’s quest was always for less. She starting running track as a little girl in Jamaica and began competing when she was only seven. At 31 she’s had a career’s worth of conditioning to run a 400-meter race in 50 seconds, hopefully 49, or even better, 48.

      When she started training with her coach, Clyde Hart, they divided her race into four phases: push, pace, position, poise, and with the inherent prayer. For years Sanya worked to hone every phase in practice so that when it came time to race, her body would respond as her mind instinctively transitioned from one phase to the next. As she got older and embraced a life that measures more than just a number on the time clock, she has realized the genius of this strategy for not just racing the 400 meters, but for living her best life.

      Sanya shares triumphant as well as heartbreaking stories as she reveals her journey to becoming a world-class runner. From her childhood in Jamaica to Athens, Beijing and London Olympics, readers will find themselves inspired by the unique insights she’s gained through her victories and losses, including her devastating injury during the 2016 Olympic Trials forcing career retirement just weeks before Rio. Sanya demonstrates how even this devastating loss brought her closer to the ultimate goal of becoming all God created her to be.

      Sometimes you think you are chasing a gold medal, but that’s not what you are chasing. You’re racing to become the best version of yourself.

    • Tears That Changed A Nation

      $29.99

      Remnant Publications Product

      Slavery has left a permanent impression upon the conscience of America, and created a terrible cancer that wounded the country’s heart and soul for generations in both the North and the South. The land of the free, as we now know it, was not always so. Countless men and women were violently taken from their families and thrust into the throes of hard labor, unfamiliar surroundings, abuse, along with days and nights filled with inconsolable mourning. And yet, many experienced life in a way that their slave masters would have considered normal. They cared for their master’s children, mended their clothing, prepared their food, and ironically became the backbone of their master’s families.

      In Tears That Changed a Nation, you will learn the true story of our sordid past through the experiences of a remarkable former slave woman. Known as Aunt Minty, she lived 111 years and never learned to read nor write.

      At the time Arminta O’Banion was born, slavery had already become established in America. The first cargo ship of thirteen Africans arrived in St. Mary’s City in 1642, and in 1664, Maryland legalized slavery. In 1783 Maryland prohibited the importation of slaves. The Maryland Gazette denounced the inequality in newly formed America, which promoted liberty and freedom while enslaving thousands.

      See Minty’s life as being unusual, rather than a reflection of the lives of many other slave women. See through her the events and personages that caused the shedding of tears that brought changes to the nation. See her long life as she remembered it while picking up her wood chips along the shoreline of the Ohio River. See her view of life before and after the Civil War. Experience her life with her first master, Edmund Randolph, one of the Founding Fathers who was responsible for a motion that would later remove the word slavery from the Constitution. Learn of her recollections of others she served such as, General Green Clay, who was the ancestor, after whom Muhammad Ali was originally named. Learn what it was like to finally experience freedom and not know what to do with it. She wondered how her family would be accepted in the white society. They had no home of their own. All of their children born before their emancipation were still slaves of General Green. How could they leave them? Would society respect them? Would they respect themselves? Experience her story now…

    • Reclaiming Hope : Lessons Learned In The Obama White House About The Future

      $25.99

      The former Obama administration ambassador to America’s believers gives an inside account of living with faith in the White House and argues that Christians have a responsibility to be a hopeful and faithful presence in public life. As a young Christian in his early twenties, Michael Wear found himself deep inside the halls of power in the Obama administration as one of the youngest ever White House staffers. Throwing himself wholeheartedly into transforming hope into change, Wear experienced first-hand the highs and lows of working as a Christian in government. From the central role of Christians in achievements such as the adoption tax credit and directing the president’s attention to human trafficking to the religious controversies and tensions that defined much of the president’s time in office, Reclaiming Hope gives an unvarnished account of life inside the most powerful office in the world. At a time when large numbers of thoughtful Christians argue for a withdrawal from participation in public institutions, Wear uses his experience at the white-hot center of civic life to show how and why Christians must be involved in every aspect of cultural life-even if failures seem to outnumber successes-while working on behalf of the nation’s common good.

      An Inspiring True Story Set in the Midst of the Civil Rights Era

      By 1970, racial tension was at a breaking point in the southern town of Gallatin, Tennessee. Desegregation had emotions running high. The town was a powder keg ready to erupt. But it was also on the verge of something incredible.

      Eddie Sherlin and Bill Ligon were boys growing up on opposite sides of the tracks who shared a passion for basketball. They knew the barriers that divided them–some physical landmarks and some hidden in the heart–but those barriers melted away when the boys were on the court. After years of playing wherever they could find a hoop, Eddie and Bill entered the rigors of their respective high school teams. At the end of the 1970 season, all-white Gallatin High and all-black Union High faced each other in a once-in-a-lifetime championship game. What happened that night would challenge Eddie and Bill–and transform their town.

      Readers will love this fast-paced true story of courage, determination, character, and forgiveness.

    • Stolen : The True Story Of A Sex Trafficking Survivor (Reprinted)

      $17.99

      Sex trafficking is currently a hot news topic, but it is not a new problem or just a problem in other countries. Every year, an estimated 300,000 American children are at risk of being lured into the sex trade, some as young as eight years old. It is thought that up to 90 percent of victims are never rescued.

      Stolen is the true story of one survivor who escaped–more than once. First recruited while staying with her family at a hotel in Miami Beach, Katariina Rosenblatt was already a lonely and abused young girl who was yearning to be loved. She fell into the hands of a confident young woman who pretended friendship but slowly lured her into a child prostitution ring. For years afterward, a cycle of false friendship, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped.

      As Kat shares her harrowing experiences, readers will quickly realize the frightening truth that these terrible things could have happened to any child–a neighbor, a niece, a friend, a sister, a daughter. But beyond that, they will see that there is real hope for the victims of sex trafficking. Stolen is more than a warning. It is a celebration of survival that will inspire.

    • C S Lewis And Mere Christianity

      $14.99

      Mere Christianity is one of the best books of Christian apologetics ever written. Arguably, no book other than the Bible itself has had as much influence for the cause of the gospel over the past 60 years. The story of how that message came to be created, during the rigors of World War II in England, is fascinating in and of itself. But it also addresses a very important question: How do we present the gospel effectively to a culture that has Christian foundations but has become largely secularized and ignorant of biblical truth?

      C.S. Lewis and Mere Christianity develops the circumstances of Lewis’s life and the inner workings of the BBC. It also goes into greater detail about life in the middle of war against Nazi Germany, and Lewis’s series of broadcasts that extended into 1944.

    • Kisses From Katie

      $16.99

      What would cause an eighteen-year-old old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother’s heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because the rest of them think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person but didn’t know any of the language? A passion to make a difference. Katie Davis left over Christmas break her senior year for a short mission trip to Uganda and her life was turned completely inside out. She found herself so moved by the people and children of Uganda that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. She has given up a relatively comfortable life-at a young age-to care for the less fortunate of this world. She was so moved by the need she witnessed, she’s centered her life around meeting that need. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, is in the process of adopting thirteen children in Uganda, and she completely trusts God for daily provision for her and her family.

      Despite the rough conditions in which Katie lives, she has found a life of service to God to be one of great joy. Katie’s children bring constant delight and help her help others by welcoming whoever comes to their door. As the challenges grow, so does Katie’s faith and her certainty that what she’s doing in Uganda, one person at a time, will have far-reaching rewards. It isn’t the life she planned, but it is the life she loves.

      To further her reach into the needs of Ugandans, Katie established Amazima Ministries. The ministry matches orphaned children with sponors worldwide. Each sponsor’s $300/year provides schooling, school supplies, three hot meals a day, minor medical care, and spiritual encouragement. Katie expected to have forty children in the program; she had signed up 150 by January 2008; today it sponsors over 400. Another aspect of the ministry is a feeding program created for the displaced Karamojong people-Uganda’s poorest citizens. The program feeds lunch to over 1,200 children Monday-Friday and sends them home with a plate of food; it also offers basic medical care, Bible study, and general health training.

      Katie Davis is more than fascinating, she’s inspiring, as she has wholeheartedly answered the call to serve.
