Accidental Marriage

Accidental Marriage
Thomas, Roger
$19.95

What does heroism look like? When does friendship become too costly? Do we ever truly touch one another, or are we doomed to walk alone forever? Can love survive trials, or does it inevitably wither and die?

The Accidental Marriage is a contemporary story that explores these questions through vibrant, sympathetic characters whose struggles and triumphs illustrate that love doesn't always look like you would expect.

Scott and Megan are friends who live and work in the vibrant San Francisco Bay Area. Mostly contented with their jobs and same-sex relationships, they meet for lunch and sympathetic conversation from time to time.

When Megan's partner wants a baby, Scott offers to help. The ensuing complications force Scott and Megan to grapple with how much they're willing to sacrifice for friendship and for the child they've conceived. When Megan's situation unravels, Scott must step up to responsibilities he's never assumed before.

Then his circumstances start to crumble, and a series of misfortunes strip them of everything but each other. They end up back in Scott's small Midwestern hometown which he thought he'd left forever. There he learns dark secrets of his own past, and ultimately is forced to wrestle with a terrible legacy which he must master or be destroyed by.

Eighth Arrow: Odysseus in the Underworld, a Novel

Eighth Arrow: Odysseus in the Underworld, a Novel
Wetta, J Augustine
$17.95

Condemned to burn in the eighth circle of Dante's Hell,

Odysseus, legendary thief and liar of Homer's Odyssey and

Iliad, decides he is going to break out. His adventure begins

with a prayer to Athena Parthenos, who appears to him bear-

ing gifts: his armor, his famous bow, a mysterious leather

pouch, and seven unusual arrows. She then sends him on

a quest through the Underworld along with Diomedes, his

friend from the Trojan War who had been sharing in his eter-

nal punishment. To complete their escape, the goddess warns

them, they must recover their squandered honor and learn to

use "the eighth arrow".

At turns exciting, humorous, and edifying, this action-

packed epic follows Odysseus and Diomedes as they journey

through all the circles of Dante's Hell, where they encoun-

ter various characters from Greek mythology, ancient his-

tory, and Renaissance literature, including Helen of Troy,

Cerberus, Penelope, Homer, Harpies, Centaurs, and eventu-

ally Satan himself. With witty banter and wily stratagems,

the two Greek warriors fight their way through the obstacles

that stand between them and redemption.

The Eighth Arrow is a thoroughly entertaining jailbreak story. Full of allusions to great works of old, it is also gently educa-

tional, and as such it can be read as a guide or a companion

to Dante's Inferno and the works of Homer.

Elijah in Jerusalem

Elijah in Jerusalem
O'Brien, Michael D
$18.95

Elijah in Jerusalem, the long-awaited sequel to the acclaimed, best-selling novel Father Elijah: An Apocalypse, is the continuing story of the Catholic priest called to confront a powerful politician who could be the Antichrist foretold in the Bible.

A convert from Judaism, a survivor of the Holocaust, and a participant in the founding of Israel, Father Elijah was for decades a monk on Mount Carmel, the mountain made famous by his Old Testament prophet-namesake. In the events of the preceding novel, the Pope commissioned Father Elijah to meet the President of the European Union, a man rising toward global control as President of the soon- to-be realized World Government. Recognizing in the President a resemblance to the anticipated Antichrist, the Pope asked Father Elijah to call the President to repentance, a mission that ended in failure.

In this sequel, now-Bishop Elijah, wanted for a murder he did not commit, tries again to meet the President. Accompanied by his fellow monk Brother Enoch, he enters Jerusalem just as the President arrives in the holy city to inaugurate a new stage of his rise to world power. This time Elijah hopes to unmask him as a spiritual danger to mankind. As the story unfolds, people of various backgrounds meet the fugitive priest, and in the encounter their souls are revealed and tested.

Elijah perseveres in his mission even when all seems lost. The dramatic climax is surprising, yet it underlines that God works all things to the good for those who love him.

Fatal Tree (Bright Empires #5 final)

Fatal Tree (Bright Empires #5 final)
Lawhead, Stephen
$16.99

Kit stared at his fellow questors. "Is this it?"

It started with small, seemingly insignificant wrinkles in time: A busy bridge suddenly disappears, spilling cars into the sea. A beast from another realm roams modern streets. Napoleon's army appears in 1930s Damascus ready for battle. But that's only the beginning as entire realities collide and collapse.

The questors are spread throughout the universe. Mina is stuck on a plain of solid ice, her only companion an angry cave lion named Baby. Tony and Gianni are monitoring the cataclysmic reversal of the cosmic expansion--but coming up short on answers. And Burleigh is languishing in a dreary underground dungeon--his only hope of survival the very man he tried to kill.

Kit and Cass are back in the Stone Age trying to reach the Spirit Well. But an enormous yew tree has grown over the portal, effectively cutting off any chance of return. Unless someone can find a solution--and fast--all Creation will be destroyed in the universal apocalypse known as The End of Everything.

In the final volume of the fantastic Bright Empires series, Stephen R. Lawhead brings the multi-stranded tale to a stunning and immensely satisfying conclusion.

Father Brown and the Ten Commandments: Selected Mystery Stories

Father Brown and the Ten Commandments: Selected Mystery Stories
Chesterton, G K
$17.95

This unique collection of Father Brown mysteries links tales by G.K. Chesterton with the Ten Commandments. The connection is often surprising, however, for the criminal is not necessarily the worst sinner in the story, nor is his crime necessarily the worst offense.

When Chesterton created the character of Father Brown, he brought a new dimension to mystery stories--the distinction between crime and sin. As the priest-detective applies his powers of observation to solve a case, he picks up clues about other offenses, such as those against the Sabbath or one's parents. Father Brown's main concern is not the laws of the State but the Commandments of God.

As Dorothy Sayers once wrote, G.K. Chesterton was the first man of our time to introduce the great name of God into a detective story . . . to enlarge the boundaries of the detective story by making it deal with death and real wickedness and real, that is to say, divine judgment.

This edition includes footnotes not available in other versions, which help to clarify the literary and historical allusions made by Father Brown. It is based on the texts of Chesterton's original editions, for assurance of authenticity, and is set in easily readable type.

Father Elijah: An Apocalypse

Father Elijah: An Apocalypse
O'Brien, Michael
$21.95
Michael O'Brien presents a thrilling apocalyptic novel about the condition of the Roman Catholic Church at the end of time. It explores the state of the modern world, and the strengths and weaknesses of the contemporary religious scene, by taking his central character, Father Elijah Schafer, a Carmelite priest, on a secret mission for the Vatican which embroils him in a series of crises and subterfuges affecting the ultimate destiny of the Church. The Pope and the Cardinal Secretary of State call him out of obscurity and give him a task of the highest sensitivity: to penetrate into the inner circles of a man whom they believe may be the Antichrist. Their purpose: to call the Man of Sin to repentance, and thus to postpone the great tribulation long enough to preach the Gospel to the whole world.

Fool of New York City

Fool of New York City
O'Brien, Michael D
$21.95

Set in present day Manhattan, The Fool of New York City is the tale of two souls who are considered to be fools and idiots in the eyes of most people they encounter.

One is a literal giant, the other an amnesiac who believes he is the 17th century Spanish painter Francisco de Goya, hundreds of years old, aging more slowly than the rest of the human race. Billy the giant has also briefly suffered from amnesia years ago, and he understands the anguish of those who have lost their identity. He is an apparently simple person, a failed basketball player with an enormous good heart who takes Francisco under his wing after they meet through a seeming coincidence. Together they undertake a laborious search to discover Francisco's true past.

The trail leads them to numerous adventures, into the shrouded realm of hidden memories, the ironies and complexities of human character and destiny, of catastrophic evil and of redemption. It is a journey into the mysterious dimensions of the mind. It is about trauma and remembrance in America.

From the author that brought you The Book of Mysteries, The Mystery of the Shemitah, and The Paradigm

"Jonathan Cahn has come up with an understanding of a pattern in the Scripture for God's judgment on ancient Israel being played out in the United States of America now. The Harbinger is the best explanation I've come across to understand the mystery of what's behind 9/11, the war in Iraq, the crash of Wall Street, and much more. This end-time revelation puts him in a new category!"
--Sid Roth Author and host of It's Supernatural and Messianic Vision

"The Harbinger

is the most precise scriptural revelation of God's passion for America. We must heed the warnings and turn back to the Christ who once greatly blessed America!"
--David Tyree Former New York Giants wide receiver

Is it possible...
That there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future?
That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy?
That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America?
That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come?

Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - These same nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications for America's future and end-time prophecy.

Hidden in an ancient biblical prophecy from Isaiah, the mysteries revealed in The Harbinger are so precise that they foretell recent American events down to the exact days... the 3,000-year-old mystery that revealed the exact date of the stock market collapse of 2008... the ancient prophecy that was proclaimed from the floor of the US Senate and then came true...and more. The revelations are so specific that even the most hardened skeptic will find it hard to put down. Though it sounds like the plot of a Hollywood thriller - IT'S REAL.

The prophetic mysteries are factual but revealed through a riveting narrative the reader will find hard to put down. The Harbinger opens with the appearance of a man burdened with a message he has received from a mysterious figure called The Prophet. The Prophet has given him nine seals, each containing a message about America s future. As he tells of his encounters with the Prophet, from a skyscraper in New York City, to a rural mountaintop, to Capitol Hill, to Ground Zero, the mystery behind each seal is revealed. As the story unfolds, each revelation becomes another piece in a larger and larger puzzle, the ramifications of which are, even now, altering the course of America and the world.

Harbinger II: The Return

Harbinger II: The Return
Cahn, Jonathan
$24.99
NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Best Selling Book
From the author that brought you 6 New York Times Best Selling Books including The Harbinger, The Book of Mysteries, and The Oracle:

Is America heading to judgment? What lies ahead? Discover what no book has ever revealed . . . until now!

Are the unprecedented crises of our times, the signs and warnings of coming judgment?

Does an ancient mystery hold the secret to the events of our times, and the future of America and the world?

Is this mystery even behind the shakings that have now overtaken the world and America?

How much time do we have left?

In 2012, Jonathan Cahn caused a worldwide sensation with the release of his first book and massive bestseller The Harbinger. It was hailed as 'stunning, ' 'prophetic' 'mind-blowing, ' and 'astonishing.' Cahn followed it with bestseller after bestseller but he has always held off on writing a sequel. But now, for the first time, Cahn opens up what could not be unlocked before - the mysteries that couldn't be revealed until the present time, the manifestations that have taken place since The Harbinger came out and up to the present hour, and the mysteries of what is yet to come.

Ever since The Harbinger was released, people have been asking...

  • Is an ancient mystery determining America's future?
  • Have the harbingers of judgment continued to manifest on American soil?
  • Is America closer now than ever before to judgment and what lies ahead for America and the world?
  • The Harbinger ended by speaking of what was yet to come. That which was written is now coming true. After years of holding back, because he believed it wasn't yet the time, Jonathan Cahn has now written the sequel. The Harbinger II is being hailed as "a prophetic masterpiece" even more powerful and stunning than the first book and will take the mystery to new dimensions and disclose what could not be revealed in The Harbinger or until now. The Harbinger II will open up the mysteries of the Gate, the Watchmen, the Mystery Ship, the Word in the Ruins, the Book of Days, the Image, the Judgment Tree, the Children of the Ruins, the Convergence, the Handwriting on the Wall, and much more. It will ultimately reveal the mystery of what is yet to come, including the Shakings, the Plague, the Western Terrace, the Island, the Day of the Watchman, and more.

    As in the first book, the mysteries and revelations of The Harbinger II are completely real and are determining the course of world events to this day. And the mysteries are, likewise, revealed through a narrative. In The Harbinger II, the reader will witness the return of Nouriel, Ana Goren, and the mysterious figure known as 'the prophet.' The prophet will now continue the revelation from where it left off and open up mysteries as stunning and mind-blowing as the first. As in the prophet's first appearance, the revelations will be unlocked, one by one, through the giving of ancient seals, but also through dreams, and a little girl as mysterious as the prophet. In The Harbinger II the reader will be taken on a mysterious and epic journey to uncover the new revelations: from an island in the waters of New England, to the steps of the Supreme Court, to the top of the tower at Ground Zero, to a primeval forest, to the House of Faces, to the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. The Harbinger II will also reveal the answer and the keys we each need to have for the days that lie ahead.

    After reading The Harbinger II, you will never see the world the same way again. Prepare to be blown away!

    Joyful Beggar: A Novel about St Francis of Assisi

    Joyful Beggar: A Novel about St Francis of Assisi
    de Wohl, Louis
    $19.95

    In this magnificent and stirring novel, Louis de Wohl turns his famed narrative skill to the story of the soldier and merchant's son who might have been right-hand man to a king ... and who became instead the most beloved of all saints. Set against the tempestuous background of 13th Century Italy and Egypt, here is the magnificent and inspiring story of Francis Bernardone, the brash, pleasure-loving young officer who was to become immortalized as St. Francis of Assisi.

    The story teems with action, pageantry and intrigue with finely conceived characters-the beautiful, saintly Clare, Frederick, the hawk-faced King of Sicily and Holy Roman Emperor, the Sultan Al Kamil, Pope Innocent III. The scene shifts from Assisi, Rome and Sicily to the deadly sands of Egypt.

    This book was made into a feature film by 20th Century Fox entitled Francis of Assisi, now available on video from Ignatius Press.

    Lighthouse

    Lighthouse
    O'Brien, Michael D
    $19.95

    Ethan McQuarry is a young lighthouse keeper on a tiny island, the rugged outcropping of easternmost Cape Breton Island on the Atlantic Ocean. A man without any family, he sees himself as a silent vigilant, performing his duties courageously year after year, with an admirable sense of responsibility.

    He cherishes his solitude and is grateful that his interactions with human beings are rare. Even so, he is haunted by his aloneness in the world and by a feeling that his life is meaningless. His courage, his integrity, his love of the sea and wildlife, of practical skills and of learning are, in the end, not enough. He is faced with internal storms and sometimes literal storms of terrifying power.

    From time to time he becomes aware that messengers are sent to him from what he calls the awakeness in existence, the listeningness. But he cannot at first recognize them as messengers nor understand what they might be telling him, until he finds himself caught up in catastrophic events, and begins to see the mysterious undercurrents of reality--and the hidden face of love.

    They that go down to the sea in ships, trading upon the waters, they see the works of the Lord and his wonders in the deep.

    Man Born Again: A Novel Based on the Life of Saint Thomas More

    Man Born Again: A Novel Based on the Life of Saint Thomas More
    Beahn, John Edward
    $14.95
    Status and wealth, power and fame: St. Thomas More had them all. As a wise and popular statesman, internationally recognized scholar, and Lord Chancellor of England, More was perhaps the most highly respected Englishman of his day until his conscience required that he lay down his life for his Catholic faith. A generation ago, the American Catholic novelist John Edward Beahn retold More's life story as a biographical novel, A Man Born Again: A Novel Based on the Life of St. Thomas More, published in 1954. Making ample use of the rich historical records of sixteenth-century England, Beahn lays out the convoluted political landscape of the period, which set the scene for the disastrous efforts of King Henry VIII to divorce his queen and marry his mistress-while demanding that the Church grant him sanction for his immorality. Alongside the political complexities, Beahn traces the development of More's interior landscape. Family conflicts, vocational perplexities, personal tragedies, and forthright acquaintances all played their part in shaping his soul. These influences, converging with the political developments that relentlessly pressed in on him, forged a remarkable character that combined brilliant intellect, moral integrity, and deep devotion to Christ and His Church. In the end, More chose to give his life rather than compromise his convictions under coercion from the state. No doubt a second generation of readers will welcome this TAN Legend edition of A Man Born Again: A Novel Based on the Life of St. Thomas More, as twenty-first-century political trends call for heroic Catholic resistance to government assault upon the Church.

    Man Cleansed by God: A Novel Based on the Life of Saint Patrick

    Man Cleansed by God: A Novel Based on the Life of Saint Patrick
    Beahn, John Edward
    $14.95
    The story of St. Patrick's life is a dynamic tale of high drama and intense spiritual force. A generation ago, the American Catholic novelist John Edward Beahn retold that story as a biographical novel based on The Confession, Patrick s famous autobiographical work. A Man Cleansed by God: A Novel on St. Patrick\'s Confession was published in 1959, a vivid narrative with intriguing speculations about the details of Patrick s experience that have been lost to history. St. Patrick s life was a series of heroic adventures: Captured as a young teen by pirates and taken from his comfortable life in ancient Roman Britain, he was sold as a slave in Ireland. Six years later he escaped and, after a long, arduous journey, he returned to his family-only to receive a call from God to go back to Ireland as a Christian missionary. Trained and ordained as a priest, and ultimately consecrated a bishop, he returned at last to Ireland. There, his bold preaching brought many thousands into the Christian fold and led to the establishment of numerous churches and religious communities. Yet even with such remarkable success, Patrick faced stiff opposition and persecution: He had to defend himself against the intrigues and false charges of both religious and political enemies, who on one occasion even went so far as to rob him of all he possessed, beat him severely, and put him in chains. A second generation of readers are sure to be delighted by this TAN Legend edition of A Man Cleansed by God: A Novel Based on the Life of St. Patrick, an unforgettable portrait of the fifth-century saint who changed Ireland forever.

    Marcus

    Marcus
    Giesler, Michael Edward
    $9.95

    In second-century Rome, Marcus tries to resume his life as a student of philosophy at the Athenaeum. His sister, Junia, had been executed in the Amphitheater for the crime of becoming a Christian. A few weeks after her death, Marcus himself is saved from being run over by a reckless charioteer. A young passerby, a Samarian, instinctively throws him out of the path of danger. And through this selfless act of a stranger, Marcus is led to share a new world based on truth and love, but a world beset with new dangers.

    Continuing the story of Junia and of early Christian experience in the Roman Empire, Marcus reveals how the followers of Jesus, the Christ, began to transform pagan society. Social and family connections intertwine with friendship and betrayal, prejudice and loyalty, as those who are drawn to the Way must make decisions that define their own lives and forever change the world in which they live.
