“Many mystery buffs have credited Louise Penny with the revival of the type of traditional murder mystery made famous by Agatha Christie. . . . The book’s title is a metaphor not only for the month of April but also for Gamache’s personal and professional challenges—making this the series standout so far.” –Sarah WeinmanWelcome to Three Pines, where the cruelest month is about to deliver on its threat. It’s spring in the tiny, forgotten village; buds are on the trees and the first flowers are struggling through the newly thawed earth. But not everything is meant to return to life. . . When some villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a seance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil—until one of their party dies of fright. Was this a natural death, or was the victim somehow helped along? Brilliant, compassionate Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec is called to investigate, in a case that will force him to face his own ghosts as well as those of a seemingly idyllic town where relationships are far more dangerous than they seem.Read more Read less

A Definitive Masterwork from the World’s Leading Christian ApologistThroughout his career, Ravi Zacharias has faced some of the most difficult questions ever asked about the Christian faith. The most troublesome question of all, however, came from a Hindu friend. “If this conversion is truly supernatural,” he asked, “why is it not more evident in the lives of so many Christians that I know?” Beyond Opinion is Dr. Zacharias’s response. In addition to his own contributions, Ravi Zacharias brings together the global team of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, including Alister McGrath and John Lennox, to suggest a new vision for Christian apologetics in this century. Their aim is an apologetic governed by human relationship and committed to winning people rather than arguments. Speaking from their experiences and expertise, the contributors offer guidance on a broad range of topics, including: Postmodern Challenges and the Bible Challenges from Atheism Challenges from Islam Conversational Apologetics Existential Challenges of Evil and SufferingMore than a book of apologetics, Beyond Opinion will equip you intellectually, spiritually, and relationally “to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”

From critically acclaimed, Edgar-nominated author Steve Ulfelder—Conway Sax is back in a thrilling and heart-wrenching story of how far a father will go to save his sonConway Sax is a man seeking redemption. A man with a deeply checkered past currently paying for his sins by helping Gus Biletnikov stay sober. Wise-ass Gus, son of a wealthy investment banker, drives Conway nuts. But he also reminds him of his own estranged son, and so Conway finds himself deeply invested in his wellbeing.When a brutal triple-murder takes place in Gus’s halfway house, Conway suspects Gus was the intended victim, and resolves to find the killer in his usual full-tilt, no-holds-barred fashion. The list of suspects soon includes the longtime organized-crime warlord of Springfield, Massachusetts; Gus’s own father, who’s a bundle of insecurity despite his fortune; the father’s second wife, a stunning beauty webbed in ugly motives; and a Houston con man who’ll swipe your gold fillings but crack you up while he does so. But the case is no laughing matter to Conway when somebody close to him is murdered. To find the killer and prevent yet more senseless death, he needs help from both an ambitious Brazilian-American state cop, and an unlikely criminal source. Along the way, Conway’s personal responsibilities clash with his vow to help fellow alcoholics, forcing him to make his toughest decision yet in this unforgettable page-turner reminiscent of Robert B. Parker and Dennis Lehane.Praise for Shotgun Lullaby“This action-packed story moves lightning fast, and Sax makes an appealingly damaged protagonist. Dennis Lehane and Robert B. Parker fans will enjoy Ulfelder.” –Booklist“Gritty, intense, completely original. Ulfelder nails the voice, nails the story, and pushes Conway Sax, his unforgettable main character, beyond his breaking point. Shotgun Lullaby Y is more than just a page-turner of a mystery—it’s a masterful study of a good guy gone bad, and his heart-breaking struggle to be good again.” –Hank Phillippi Ryan Agatha, Anthony & Macavity winning author of The Other Woman“Steve Ulfelder is one of the most street-smart authors writing crime fiction today. Shotgun Lullaby is a thrill ride that hits the gas hard on page one and races all the way to a heart-pounding finish.” –Paul Doiron, author of Bad Little Falls“Shotgun Lullaby is exactly as tough, and exactly as full of heart, as the title suggests. Steve Ulfelder is a major talent.” –Timothy Hallinan, author of The Fear ArtistRead more Read less

Giving up has become a terrible epidemic. Our society has become one of constant quitting. It may seem easier than holding on and waiting for God to show up, but giving up reaps no benefits. Just as quitting is never an option for a trained soldier in combat, it is not an option for the man or woman who stands on God’s Word as a soldier in His army. Called to Battle, Destined to Win, is a training manual for Christian soldiers, motivating believers to not give up and encouraging them that God’s Word is true when it claims that He will come through for them as long as they do not quit. Dr. Jerry Savelle, who admits that he was once a quitter himself, writes candidly about his own experiences and challenges God’s army to stand on the Word of God until victory is achieved.
