Paul: 90 Days on His Journey of Faith
Beth Moore
Broadman & Holman, September 2010
Best-selling author Beth Moore has a remarkable gift for crafting insightful Bible character studies. Millions have been drawn to her inspired lessons, and the media has called her “America’s Bible teacher.” The PERSONAL REFLECTIONS series continues to reintroduce Beth’s most beloved character-driven books, expanding them into 90-day experiences that include nearly all of the text from her original work, plus thoughtful questions and journal space to engage readers throughout this special time of study. Paul: 90 Days on His Journey of Faith is the new presentation of Moore’s enduring favorite, To Live Is Christ. Indeed, life with Christ meant a 180-degree turn for the apostle Paul who went from Christian basher to Christian chapmion, from church attacker to church father. When Jesus captured Paul’s soul, He got all of him. The same can be true for you.

Immanuel's Veins
Ted Dekker
Thomas Nelson, September 2010
This story is for everyone--but not everyone is for this story. It is a dangerous tale of times past. A torrid love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice. Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee. Forgetting it once had a truer lover. With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds. Love will prove greater than lust. Sacrifice will overcome seduction. And blood will flow. Because the battle for the heart is always violently opposed. For those desperate to drink deep from this fountain of life, enter. But remember, not everyone is for this story.
