New Releases

Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes
E. Randolph Richards
IVP Books, December 2012
Biblical scholars O'Brien and Richards identify nine key areas where Western readers tend to make significantly different cultural assumptions about what's being conveyed in a Bible passage. Drawing on their cross-cultural experiences, they demonstrate how a better self-awareness of these discrepancies can allow readers to see the Bible in fresh, unexpected ways. 240 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

The Grace Walk Devotional
Steve McVey
Harvest House Publishers, January 2013
Since 1995, Steve McVey's Grace Walk (over 250,000 sold) has inspired Christians to leave behind performance- and fear-based Christianity and embrace God in all His generosity and grace.
Steve's devotional draws on Scripture and the Grace Walk message, enabling readers to take in life-changing teaching piece by piece and day by day. As they grasp that God's grace is immensely more than a doctrine, they will discover
  • why it's all right to give up on themselves and their efforts
  • new ways to quit "doing" for God so that He can live through them
  • how to view the Bible, salvation, and evangelism from a new perspective
This power-packed book will lead believers to understand who they are in Christ, help them relax and delight in Jesus' love and friendship, and find that He will do more through them and in them than they could ever do for Him or for themselves.

Chocolate-Covered Baloney  v. 3 (Confessions of April Grace)
KD McCrite
Thomas Nelson, November 2012
The last thing April Grace wants is more change in her life—but that’s exactly what she gets! Plus, April has a new mystery to solve when Myra Sue starts sneaking around and acting very suspicious! From snooty new neighbors to starting junior high to getting a new baby brother to having her grandmother get a boyfriend, April Grace has had enough change to last until she is at least 87 years old. But when it rains, it pours, and April Grace is in for the ride of her life when her prissy, citified neighbor Isabel becomes her gym teacher and a long-lost relative suddenly reappears and throws everything into a tizzy. On top of that, April’s sister, Myra Sue, has been hiding something and sneaking around. April needs to find out what is going on before her silly sister gets herself into trouble again. More important, will April find the grace she needs to handle her topsy-turvy life and forgive past wrongs? Girls will fall in love with April’s humor and completely relate to her as she deals with family, friends, drama, and both the humor and the heartache that are part of growing up.
