Can you imagine . . . Sitting at the feet of Jesus, Hearing the kindness in His voice while He explains mysteries of the ages as the angels, in chorus, rejoice? "Through Eyes of Faith" takes you on a poetic journey of faith, strengthening your walk with God and encouraging your reliance on His promises. Faith is more than simply saying, "I believe." Even Satan believes in Jesus, and trembles at the mention of His name. When the soul and the heart are actively engaged in discerning God's presence, faith is released to work in the lives of His people. "Through Eyes of Faith" is a collection of ninety-three faith-building poems- insightful, uplifting, and often humorous. When you choose to sit at the feet of Jesus, you will learn to see "through eyes of faith" and receive the power to say, like Paul, "I can do everything through him who gives me strength" (Philippians 4:13 NIV).

As a five-year-old, Shelley Fraser is known for mischief. On Halloween in l949, she fancies her brother's devil costume and persuades her mother to hem it up for her. But her plan to scare the total baloney out of the neighbor's babies backfires. At kindergarten, she throws a six-year-old birthday party never to be forgotten, falls in love at juice time, and learns to read. Six weeks into first grade, she becomes one of over 30,000 falling down the Polio Hole--which is the way she thinks of the illness sweeping across America. During those years of dealing with braces, crutches, the loss of muscles that will never come back, she finds she is still very much who she always was, only more aware of the world's miracles. With a lasting lesson from her night visitor in the Isolation Hospital and a second chance as the Halloween Queen with her sweetheart Richard, she also earns a dog named Buddy, a horse with the nickname Lightn', and the friendship of a woman who teaches the enchantment of letters that can be read only with a mirror. Shelley's battle to overcome the nightmare illness that changed America is woven into the story of the scientific development of the vaccine that nailed shut the Polio Hole. The efforts to bury the Hole worldwide is a major challenge of the twenty-first century.

Strife is the Winner of the 2007 Noma Award for Publishing in Africa. Strife is a rich and densely written novel that provides a dark exposé of the tension between modernity and tradition, and deep insights into culture in Zimbabwe in the 21st century. Chinodya explores the powerful draw that conflicting ideologies exercise over an emerging middle-class that at once yearns for autonomy and unconsciously desires the irresponsibility of an all-pervading destiny. Tracing the Gwanagara’s roots back over a century, Chinodya interweaves past and the present, juxtaposing incidents never forgotten or resolved, revealing how memory becomes an actor in lived time. A large family grows up in Gweru. Their father aspires to be an enlightened Christian man; he sees his children through school and college where they do well. But as adults, they are struck by illness. Who is to blame? Who is to cure these ailments? What wrongs have they committed to offend the ancestors? How can atonement be made? Can education, science and medicine provide any solution? Their mother, the moon huntress, seeks out the answers and the cures in traditional beliefs and customs.

In this poignant and funny memoir, Laura recounts the time her faith in her marriage was put to the test.

Historically, short stories were a rich source of successful movies and significant films. Classics such as Rear Window, High Noon, Psycho, All About Eve, and Blade Runner began as short stories. Unfortunately, many of the major venues for discovering new talent—The Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, and Mademoiselle—are gone. Today, short stories are again becoming an important basis for major motion pictures and television, with films such as Brokeback Mountain, Good Will Hunting, and Minority Report. One reason short stories are making a Hollywood comeback is Next Stop Hollywood, an organization dedicated to finding both new talent and terrific material. This volume, selected by more than sixty movie-buff readers and advised by an editorial board of Hollywood insiders, picks up where those magazines left off. These very same stories may be at a theater near you in the near future. For anyone who has been disappointed by the movies of our day compared to those of the Golden Era of Hollywood, refresh yourself with these exciting short stories, and the possibilities they hold.

It is autumn, 1863, in rural Kent. Cecily Carpenter, at only fourteen, has been sent into service as the housemaid of the local rectory, and is distraught as she faces the loss of her long-held dream of becoming a teacher. Alfred Nicholson, though ten years older, also struggles to come to terms with the path set down for him by fate and family. He is a gentle, musical man, who has become the reluctant heir of a small building business. Only his love for Emma Fielding, the local schoolteacher, gives him hope that his life has meaning and purpose. Both Cecily and Alfred face an age-old problem as they set out into adult life. Should they fight for their dreams, or give them up in the face of difficult circumstances, their own inadequacies and the expectations of their families and society? At the heart of their story lies a tragedy, now buried beneath years of silence and shame. The 'small shadow' of the title is a young child, who stands in a stream building a dam on a hot summer's day. He is unaware that he holds in his hands, not just rocks and stones, but the power to destroy his brother, or save him. Only one man knows the truth of what happened in the valley many years before. In the face of another near-tragedy, he decides to speak out. When the terrible shadow of guilt that has hung over him since childhood is finally lifted, Alfred is able to see what he must do to 'make his heart sing'. In doing so, he enables Cecily, too, to believe in her dreams and to look forward to a new and exciting future.
