THE DICTATOR POPE<br />The inside story of the most tyrannical and unprincipled papacy of modern times.<br />Jorge Bergoglio was elected Pope in 2013 as a liberal and a reformer. In fact, he had long been known in his native Argentina as a manipulative politician and a skilful self-presenter. Behind the mask of a genial man of the people, Pope Francis has consolidated his position as a dictator who rules by fear and has allied himself with the most corrupt elements in the Vatican to prevent and reverse the reforms that were expected of him.<br />THE AUTHOR<br />Marcantonio Colonna is a graduate of Oxford University and has extensive experience of historical and other research. He has been living in Rome since the beginning of Pope Francis's pontificate, and his book is the fruit of close contacts with many of those working in the Vatican, including the leading Cardinals and other figures mentioned in the narrative.

THEY SAY YOU CAN TAKE THE GIRL OUT OF THE SOUTH, BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE THE SOUTH OUT OF THE GIRL. THIS GIRL BEGS TO DIFFER.<br /><br />Piper Wick left her hometown of Pickwick, North Carolina twelve years ago, shook the dust off her feet, ditched her drawl and her family name, and made a new life for herself as a high-powered public relations consultant in Los Angeles. She’s even engaged to be engaged to the picture-perfect U.S. Congressman Grant Spangler.<br /><br />Now all of Piper’s hard-won happiness is threatened by a reclusive uncle’s bout of conscience. In the wake of a health scare, Uncle Obadiah Pickwick has decided to change his will, leaving money to make amends for four generations’ worth of family misdeeds. But that will reveal all the Pickwick’s secrets, including Piper’s.<br /><br />Though Piper arrives in Pickwick primed for battle, she is unprepared for Uncle Obe’s rugged, blue-eyed gardener. So just who is Axel Smith? Why does he think making amends is about more than just making restitution? And why, oh why, can’t she stay on task? With God’s help, Piper is about to discover that although good PR might smooth things over, only the truth will set her free. <br /><br />PRAISE FOR LEAVING CAROLINA<br /><br />“Tamara Leigh always manages to wrap biblical truth in a fun, light-hearted package. Leaving Carolina reminds us that the good stuff may require a little digging. This wonderful romance does not disappoint.” ~ KRISTEN BILLERBECK, author of What a Girl Wants<br /><br />“Want to be drawn into a story rather than just reading it? Then allow me to suggest Tamara Leigh’s Leaving Carolina as your next ‘gotta have it’ story—because this is more than just a novel. It’s an adventure. It’s entertainment. It’s why you turn off the TV and pick up a really good book!” ~ EVA MARIE EVERSON, author of Things Left Unspoken<br /><br />“Of all Tamara Leigh’s novels, this one is my favorite so far! Th colorful characters in Pickwick invited me to sit down to Sunday brunch and dig into the biscuits and gravy! A fun novel not to be missed!” ~ CAMY TANG, author of Single Sashimi and Deadly Intent<br /><br />“Leaving Carolina is the first book in Tamara Leigh’s Southern Discomfort series, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one! Leigh’s cast of eccentric down-home characters, her warm-hearted and harried protagonist, and her charming Southern style provide readers with a story this warm, witty, and wise.” ~ MARTA PERRY, author of Twice in a Lifetime<br /><br />“This is definitely a book I would recommend to my friends. Piper Pickwick is charming!” ~ ERYNN MANGUM, author of Miss Match<br /><br />“Leaving Carolina is a soul-stirring sip of inspiration. With a Southern twist, Leigh draws us back to core values sweetened with a hint of romance. Good to the last drop!” ~ LOIS RICHER, author of A Ring and a Promise<br /><br />“Tamara Leigh is a must-read for laugh-out-loud humor and soul-bearing honesty! And Leaving Carolina is classic Tamara Leigh, with quirky Southern characters, feel-good giggles, and many deep truths to ponder. Come spend some delightful hours in Pickwick, North Carolina, and see why Leaving Carolina has a bright spot on my keeper shelf.” ~ AMY WALLACE, author of Enduring Justice, Book 3 in the Defenders of Hope series<br /><br />“Leaving Carolina was a joy to read It is delightfully funny, heart tugging, and honest. Tamara has a unique voice, a wonderful way with words, and has created a memorable story with great characters. I loved it, and I am looking forward other next book.” ~ PATRICIA H. RUSHFORD, author, speaker, and OCW Summer Conference Director

<b>The same God who leads us to green pastures guides us through the valleys. #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Joel Osteen shares how God uses the darkness in life for good.<br /><br /></b>All of us will go through dark times that we don't understand: a difficulty with a friend, an unfair situation at work, a financial setback, an unexpected illness, a divorce, or the loss of a loved one. Those types of experiences are part of the human journey. But when we find ourselves in such a place, it's important that we keep a positive perspective. Joel Osteen writes that if we stay in faith and keep a good attitude when we go through challenges, we will not only grow, but we will see how all things work together for our good. Through practical applications and scriptural insight, BLESSED IN THE DARKNESS focuses on how to draw closer to God and trust Him when life doesn't make sense.<br /><br />If we will go through the dark place in the valley trusting, believing, and knowing that God is still in control, we will come to the table that is already prepared for us, where our cup runs over.

<DIV><B>From one of our most celebrated writers on religion comes this fresh, bold, and unsettling new translation of the New Testament</B><BR /><BR /> David Bentley Hart undertook this new translation of the New Testament in the spirit of “etsi doctrina non daretur,” “as if doctrine is not given.” Reproducing the texts’ often fragmentary formulations without augmentation or correction, he has produced a pitilessly literal translation, one that captures the texts’ impenetrability and unfinished quality while awakening readers to an uncanniness that often lies hidden beneath doctrinal layers.<BR />  <BR /> The early Christians’ sometimes raw, astonished, and halting prose challenges the idea that the New Testament affirms the kind of people we are. Hart reminds us that they were a company of extremists, radical in their rejection of the values and priorities of society not only at its most degenerate, but often at its most reasonable and decent. “To live as the New Testament language requires,” he writes, “Christians would have to become strangers and sojourners on the earth, to have here no enduring city, to belong to a Kingdom truly not of this world. And we surely cannot do that, can we?”</DIV>

<p>Is my ordinary, everyday life actually significant? Is it okay to be fulfilled by the simple acts of raising kids, working in an office, and cooking chicken for dinner?</p><p>It’s been said, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.” The pressure of that can be staggering as we spend our days looking for that big thing that promises to take our breath away. Meanwhile, we lose sight of the small significance of fully living with every breath we take.</p><p>Melanie Shankle, <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author and writer at The Big Mama Blog tackles these questions head on in her fourth book, <em>Church of the Small Things</em>. Easygoing and relatable, she speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in the normal, sometimes mundane world of driving carpool to soccer practice, attending class on their college campus, cooking meals for their family, or taking care of a sick loved one.</p><p>The million little pieces that make a life aren’t necessarily glamorous or far-reaching. But God uses some of the smallest, most ordinary acts of faithfulness—and sometimes they look a whole lot like packing lunch. </p><p>Through humorous stories told in her signature style, full of Frito pie, best friends, the love of her Me-Ma and Pa-Pa, the unexpected grace that comes when we quit trying to measure up, and a little of the best TV has to offer, Melanie helps women embrace what it means to live a simple, yet incredibly meaningful life and how to find all the beauty and laughter that lies right beneath the surface of every moment.</p>

<b>In a moving example of unconditional love in dif­ficult times, the Jesuit priest and bestselling author of <i>Tattoos on the Heart</i>, Gregory Boyle, shares what three decades of working with gang members in Los Angeles has taught him about faith, compassion, and the enduring power of kinship.</b><BR><BR>In his first book, <i>Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion</i>, Gregory Boyle introduced us to Homeboy Industries, the largest gang-intervention program in the world<i>. </i>Critics hailed that book as an “astounding literary and spiritual feat” (<i>Publishers Weekly</i>) that is “destined to become a classic of both urban reportage and contemporary spirituality” (<i>Los Angeles Times</i>). Now, after the suc­cessful expansion of Homeboy Industries, Boyle returns with <i>Barking to the Choir </i>to reveal how com­passion is transforming the lives of gang members.<BR> <BR> In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence, <i>Barking to the Choir </i>offers a snapshot into the challenges and joys of life on the margins. Sergio, arrested at nine, in a gang by twelve, and serving time shortly thereafter, now works with the substance-abuse team at Homeboy to help others find sobriety. Jamal, abandoned by his family when he tried to attend school at age seven, gradually finds forgive­ness for his schizophrenic mother. New father Cuco, who never knew his own dad, thinks of a daily adventure on which to take his four-year-old son. These former gang members uplift the soul and reveal how bright life can be when filled with unconditional love and kindness.<BR> <BR> This book is guaranteed to shake up our ideas about God and about people with a glimpse at a world defined by more compassion and fewer barriers. Gently and humorously, <i>Barking to the Choir </i>invites us to find kinship with one another and reconvinces us all of our own goodness.
