Inspired by the Kendrick brothers’ new movie <i>OVERCOMER,</i> and written by the #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling author team behind <i>The Love Dare</i> and <i>The Battle Plan for Prayer, </i>comes an exciting new resource about discovering your God-given identity and embracing the wonder of who you were created to be. <br /><br /> At this very moment, what you believe about your own purpose and value affects almost every area of your life—including how you think and feel, the way you react to circumstances, and how you approach God and your relationships. But what is guiding your core beliefs? Are they healthy and founded upon solid truth? Or are they constantly shifting with the opinions of others or your own emotions?<br /><br /> Based upon powerful insights from the scriptural book of Ephesians, and seasoned with personal stories and practical wisdom, <i>Defined</i> challenges you to let the One who knows you best be the One who guides your heart the most. It’s time for all of us to live in the amazing light of His acceptance, abundance, and strength.<br />

<b>HAILED BY <em>O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE</em>, AS “A TITLE TO PICK UP NOW!”</b><br /><br /><b>In Kristen Wolf’s audacious and timely fiction debut, an unusual girl in the heart of ancient Palestine escapes her life of oppression—undertakes an epic and dangerous journey—and struggles to accept her remarkable calling as a great spiritual leader. </b><br /><br /><b>Deeply emotional, provocative and edge-of-your-seat suspenseful, THE WAY transports readers to an exotic world brimming with mystery, betrayal, passion, unforgettable characters and jaw-dropping plot twists.</b><br /> <br />“Wow, is all I can say. This novel blew me away!”<br /><b>—Book Pleasures</b><br /><br />“I don’t think I could rave anymore about this book … truly one of a kind.”<br /><b>—Chick Lit Plus</b><br /><br />"This imaginative novel may make you a believer."<br /><em><b>—O, The Oprah Magazine </b></em><br /><br />“THE WAY is a daring and passionate debut from an author to watch in the future.”<br /><b>—Historical Novel Society</b><br /><br />“Respelendent writing.”<br /><b>—Minding Spot</b><br /><br />“…page turning and utterly creative.”<br /><b>—Maria’s Space</b><br /><br />Anna is a striking and spirited young girl living in ancient Palestine where being a daughter is a disappointment. While her father excitedly anticipates the birth of his first son, the invisible Anna endures a life of drudgery. One bright spot in her world is the crippled old woman living by the village well who declares that the headstrong girl possesses a powerful destiny. But before the elder can reveal her prophecy an unexpected tragedy strikes Anna's family and her father—dressing Anna as a boy—sells his daughter to a band of wandering shepherds.<br /><br />Abandoned and armed with only bravery and wits, Anna must learn to survive the harsh desert and unruly men. Yet just when she masters her bold life of disguise, she stumbles upon a den of mysterious caves and is captured by the secret band of women living inside. Unable to escape, Anna soon discovers that the sisterhood’s mystical teachings and miraculous healing abilities have forced her to question everything she’s been told to believe and—to her amazement—unleashed an astonishing power within her. <br /><br />But when violent enemies opposed to the women's ways threaten to destroy them, Anna vows to save her mentors and preserve their powerful wisdom. Forced again to leave home and loved ones behind, a transformed Anna returns to the world of men—as only she can—determined to unfold a daring and dangerous quest. Her final effort drives toward a gripping climax that pits the new leader against overwhelming forces and puts everything she’s become to the test.<br /><br /><em>Will she succeed and save all she loves… or be condemned?</em><br /><br /><b>Gorgeously written, cinematic in scope and utterly captivating, Anna’s bold journey of courage—and its startling revelations—will thrill and inspire readers everywhere.<br /><br /><b>PRAISE FOR THE WAY:</b><br /><br />"Highly descriptive settings, imaginative plot, and flowing script abound.”<br /><b>—Literary R & R</b><br /><br />“THE WAY challenges you to think beyond what you have learned… to expand your vision."<br /><b>—Library Girl Reads</b><br /><br />“… sure to be a book-club darling.”<br /><b>—Booklist</b><br /><br />“THE WAY is a magical, evocative first novel that I plan to buy a carton of to give to my family and friends.

Spirituality in Young Adult Literature: The Last Taboo (Studies i...

In a time when almost any gritty topic can be featured in a young adult novel, there is one subject that is avoided by writers and publishers. Faith and belief in God seldom appear in traditional form in novels for teens. The lack of such ideas in mainstream adolescent literature can be interpreted by teens to mean that these matters are not important. Yet a significant part of growing up is struggling with issues of spirituality. The underlying problem, of course, is that there are so few writers who are willing to talk to teenagers about God, even indirectly, or who themselves have the religious literacy for the task.<br /><br />Spirituality in Young Adult Literature: The Last Taboo tackles a subject rarely portrayed in fiction aimed at teens. In this volume, Patty Campbell examines not only realistic fiction, but young adult literature that deals with mysticism, apocalyptical end times, and even YA novels that depict the Divine Encounter. Campbell maintains that fantasy works are inherently spiritual, because the plots nearly always progress toward a showdown between good and evil. As such, the author surmises that the popularity of fantasy among teens may represent their interest in the mystical dimensions of faith and the otherworldly. In this study, Campbell examines works of fiction that express perspectives from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism. Distinguished YA novelist Chris Crowe provides a chapter on Mormon values and Mormon YA authors and how their novels integrate those values into their books. <br /><br />By looking at how spirituality is represented in novels aimed at teens, this book asks what progress, if any, has been made in slaying the taboo. Although most of the books discussed in this study are recent, an appendix lists YA books from 1967 to the present that have dealt with issues of faith. A timely look at an important subject, Spirituality in Young Adult Literature will be of interest to young adult librarians, junior and senior high school teachers, and students and instructors of college courses in adolescent literature, as well as to parents of teens.

<p><strong><em>The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice</em></strong><strong> <em>and Virtue</em> meets Jane Austen in this witty, winking historical romance with a dash of mystery!</strong></p><p>Lady Victoria Aston has everything she could want: an older sister happily wed, the future of her family estate secure, and ample opportunity to while her time away in the fields around her home. </p><p>But now Vicky must marry—or find herself and her family destitute. Armed only with the wisdom she has gained from her beloved novels by Jane Austen, she enters society’s treacherous season.</p><p>Sadly, Miss Austen has little to say about Vicky’s <em>exact</em> circumstances: whether the roguish Mr. Carmichael is indeed a scoundrel, if her former best friend, Tom Sherborne, is out for her dowry or for her heart, or even how to fend off the attentions of the foppish Mr. Silby, he of the unfortunate fashion sensibility. </p><p>Most unfortunately of all, Vicky’s books are silent on the topic of the mysterious accidents cropping up around her…ones that could prevent her from surviving until her wedding day.</p>

She knows that from this point on, her life will forever be different.

Beautiful, pickup-driving Coley is a perfect cowgirl with the perfect boyfriend to match. She and Cam forge an unexpected and intense friendship, one that seems to leave room for something more to emerge. But just as that starts to seem like a real possibility, Aunt Ruth takes drastic action to “fix” her niece, bringing Cam face-to-face with the cost of denying her true self—even if she’s not quite sure who that is.</p><p></p><p><strong>Don't miss this raw and powerful own voices debut, the basis for the award-winning film starring Chloë Grace Moretz.</strong></p>
