Life is busy with lots of demands, and many would acknowledge that they are overextended, exhausted and stressed out. In fact, some would say they don’t even have time to catch their breath. In the Gospels, there are different accounts of Jesus and the disciples deliberately leaving behind the demands of life and retreating to a quiet place in order to be renewed. This reinforces the concept that a retreat is a necessity for each one of us in today’s world if we want to keep our balance in life and relationship with God strong. In spite of all the good reasons we can think of, we can also come up with just as many good excuses not to take time to be away. In this new guide, David Sherbino helps you to get through this hindrance and identify the many aspects and benefits of doing a personal retreat. It is a step by step guide that will help you with practical steps that allow you to develop and build your relationship with God, create an openness to God and learn to listen to what he has to say to you and be totally renewed.

In Deep Soulful Places author Elizabeth Pierce takes you on a journey of discovering the deep, soulful places in each of us where God’s presence can be known and His love felt. God created places within us meant only for Him and His love. Yet they are places that often remain untouched by Him, despite His desire to meet us there. Because our heads get in the way, we can know of His love, but have yet to feel it deep within ourselves.
Elizabeth Pierce is a practicing clinical social worker by profession. Deep, Soulful Places is a culmination of all that has transpired, personally and professionally, as she used her skills and gifts to help others. As she has been tenderly, yet passionately pursued everyday by a loving God, she wants to ensure that everyone else understands that they are too.

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT MUSLIMS ARE WRONG ABOUT JESUS AND VARIOUS TENETS OF ISLAM? Is the famous Muslim writer Reza Aslan mistaken in his portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth and apologetic for Islam? Professor James Beverley and Professor Craig Evans take an in-depth look at subjects at the core of the Muslim-Christian divide: the reliability of the New Testament Gospels and the Qur’an, and what we can really know about Jesus and the prophet Muhammad. Importantly, they also examine the implications of traditional Islamic faith on the status of women, jihad and terrorism.

This 2005 Best New Canadian Christian Author Award tells the story of a policewoman who finds redemption, aided by a man she suspects of murder. Linda Donner, a Boston native, travels north to rural Nova Scotia, and takes a post as a policewoman with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in hopes of finding balance in her life. Instead of a slower pace, things heat up as she becomes preoccupied with a controversial pastor she suspects is guilty of arson, murder and child abuse. She breaks into a church and finds the suspected pastor exorcising demons from a child. She believes she has caught him in the abuse act, but finds her own self powerless as she spirals into what appears to be a nervous breakdown. As she realizes she is fighting supernatural forces, she decides she must find God’s help–a God she had stopped believing in after a priest seduced her when she was a teenager. The only person who seems able to help is her chief suspect–the pastor.

Some people think they know all the answers. They know how far you should live from your job. They know how big your backyard should be. They know how cities and forests should grow. Government planners claim to know all of that and more. They say that if you want to live in pleasant communities, enjoy beautiful wilderness, and get to work on time, you should put them in charge. But 30 years of research has convinced Randal O’Toole—one of Newsweek's top 20 “movers and shakers in the West”—that they’re wrong. In The Best-Laid Plans , he shows in case after case that government planning frequently causes the very problems it is intended to solve. Combining theory with case studies to underscore his analysis, O’Toole calls for repealing federal, state, and local planning laws and proposes reforms that can help solve social and environmental problems without heavy-handed government regulation. The Best-Laid Plans is a powerful challenge to the conventional wisdom about public lands, urban growth, and government planning.
