Three magical Christmas books from one of the world’s most beloved storytellers, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, Richard Paul Evans. The Christmas List What if someone read their obituary before they died? When real estate mogul James Kier is mistaken for another by the same name, he learns firsthand what the world really thinks of him, and decides to change his future. A holiday tale of true redemption, this novel will warm your season. The Christmas Box Miracle: My Spiritual Journey of Destiny, Healing and Hope In 1994, Richard Paul Evans, then an unknown writer, self-published a short book entitled The Christmas Box. That book went on to become an international bestseller, touching the lives of millions of people. The Christmas Box Miracle is the story behind the book that has become a Christmas classic: how a man writes and publishes a book which helps grieving people to heal and lost souls to find their way home. It is Evans’s story: his own spiritual journey and stories of people he encountered along the way—miraculous stories of healing and divinity that often defy explanation. Finding Noel The Christmas season is supposed to be full of joy, but not for Mark Smart. Life had dealt him one body blow after another: he lost his scholarship and had to drop out of school; his beloved mother had died in a car crash; his girlfriend dumped him, and now, late on a snowy night in November, his car had broken down. Stumbling into a coffee house, he was looking for a phone to call a tow truck. What he found was a beautiful young woman with an unusual name who, through a simple act of kindness, changed his life forever. Finding Noel is an inspiring novel about the power of love and the wonder of Christmas.

My name is Archie Matthews I and my family have a long history of telling tales around the fire at family gatherings. I’ve grown up listening to thousands of tales, handed down from generation to generation. Once in a while a family member might experience a new adventure that would then result in a new tale being shaped and shared with family and friends. Many of my tales are humorous adventures, full of life’s twists and turns. Some delve into the depths of human emotion. Most are factually true, while others may be slightly embellished with an angle or two to add a bit of intrigue. I am not a bold liar, crook, nor thief, but as with storytellers of old, it can be a bit of a challenge to separate the fact from the fiction. That part I will always leave up to you, the reader. I promise to never cheat you with a boring tale, nor steal your valuable time with vulgarity or gossip. I guarantee at the very least a smile, while striving for the ultimate belly laugh.

We played stickball games outside Beekman's candy store, as young teenagers, almost every day of the week, from spring until the first snowflake fell. A line drive off Beekman's store window brought him flying out the front door, white apron strings trailing behind him. A broomstick might fly from a batter's hands and rocket toward Beekman's front windows. Unofficial records and fading memories indicate that although Mr. Beekman may have lost his breath on several occasions during our stickball games, he never lost a window. In this engaging memoir, author Marty Toohey paints a vibrant portrait of growing up in the Bronx during the 1930s and 40s. In the Bronx's cultural melting pot, Toohey and his friends delighted in the simple pleasures of life. Toohey shares his memories of roasting stolen potatoes or "mickies" in an empty lot on 167th Street, of the milkman's horse tapping an early morning cadence on the cobblestones of Fulton Avenue, and of hiding from the nuns at St. Augustine's Church, known as the "Cathedral of the Bronx." Brimming with the simple charm of the past, Bronx Boy is rich with details, transporting its readers into a forgotten time of innocence.

CHESTERTON — 50 Books in One: 22 Non-Fiction, 11 Fiction, 8 Biographies, 4 Poetry, 1 Play, 3 Critiques, 1 Introduction — Over 2.3 Million Words in one E-Book — Includes an Introduction to Gilbert Keith Chesterton — Includes an Active Index to all books and 50 Table of Contents for each book — Includes Illustrations by Claude Monet Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) was an English writer. He wrote on philosophy, ontology, poetry, plays, journalism, public lectures and debates, literary and art criticism, biography, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including fantasy and detective fiction. Chesterton is often referred to as the "prince of paradox". Whenever possible, Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, and allegories—first carefully turning them inside out. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics and even some of those who disagree with him have recognized the universal appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man. Chesterton, as a political thinker, cast aspersions on both progressivism and conservatism, saying, "The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected." Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an "orthodox" Christian, and came to identify such a position more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to Roman Catholicism from High Church Anglicanism. George Bernard Shaw, Chesterton's "friendly enemy" said of him, "He was a man of colossal genius".
