  • 100 Bible Verses That Made America

    $19.99

    Esteemed author Robert J. Morgan explores 100 Bible verses that powerfully impacted our leaders during defining moments in American history and reflects upon what these verses mean for us as a nation today.

    The Bible has played a starring role in American history from our nation’s beginnings. When George Washington was sworn into office as our first president, he did not place his hand on the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States, as hallowed as those documents are. Instead, he swore upon and even kissed the Bible to sanctify this important moment. The Bible, Washington knew, had ushered American history to this point.

    Trying to explain American history without its Bible is like trying to understand the human body without its bloodstream. Had there been no Bible, there would be no America as we know it. It is the Bible that made America.

    While not every Founding Father was a Christian, a Bible-believer, or a paragon of virtue and not every leader has honored the Bible nor appreciated its influence, there is an undeniable history of leaders who’ve been intimately acquainted with the contents of the Bible, who’ve studied its scriptures and respected its teachings. Journey with Robert J. Morgan as he teaches about the Bible’s role in the defining moments and impact on the people of our nation’s history, reminding us of the beauty at the intersection of faith and country and reigniting our hearts’ passions for both.

  • America : The Last Best Hope – One Volume Edition

    $29.99

    A single-volume edition of William J. Bennett’s bestselling series, thoroughly revised and updated.

    The role of history is to inform, inspire, and sometimes provoke us, which is why Bill Bennett’s wonderfully readable book is so important. –Walter Isaacson

    A decade ago, William J. Bennett published a magisterial three-volume account of our nation’s history. Now, Bennett returns to that bestselling trilogy, revising and condensing his epic tale into one volume, a page-turning narrative of our exceptional nation. In Bennett’s signature gripping prose, Washington, Franklin, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Reagan, and others reemerge not as marble icons or dust-dry names in a textbook, but as full-blooded, heroic pioneers whose far-reaching vision forged a nation that attracted and still attracts millions yearning to breathe free.

    From the heroism of the Revolution to the dire hours of the Civil War, from the progressive reforms of the early 1900s to the civil rights reforms of the 1960s, from the high drama of the Space Race to the gut-wrenching tension of the Cold War, from the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of global Communism to the attacks of 9-11 and the war on terror, William J. Bennett captures the players, personalities, and pivotal moments of American history with piercing insight and unrelenting optimism. In this gripping tale of a nation, the story of what Lincoln referred to as the last best hope of earth comes alive in all its drama and personality.

  • Did America Have A Christian Founding

    $18.99

    A distinguished professor debunks the assertion that America’s Founders were deists who desired the strict separation of church and state and instead shows that their political ideas were profoundly influenced by their Christian convictions.

    In 2010, David Mark Hall gave a lecture at the Heritage Foundation entitled Did America Have a Christian Founding? His balanced and thoughtful approach to this controversial question caused a sensation. C-SPAN televised his talk, and an essay based on it has been downloaded more than 300,000 times.

    In this new book, Hall expands upon this essay, making the airtight case that America’s Founders were not deists; that they did not create a godless Constitution; that even Jefferson and Madison did not want a high wall separating church and state; that most Founders believed the government should encourage Christianity; and that they embraced a robust understanding of religious liberty for biblical and theological reasons. In addition, Hall explains why and how the Founders’ views are absolutely relevant today.

    This compelling and utterly persuasive book will convince skeptics and equip believers and conservatives to defend the idea that Christian thought was crucial to the nation’s founding–and that this benefits all of us, whatever our faith (or lack of faith).

  • Americas Expiration Date

    $18.99

    A warning and a wake-up call to learn history so we are not doomed to repeat it. A must-read for anyone who longs for a promising future for our great nation.

    What is wrong with America today? Is it possible that America could crumble and our democracy fail?

    Questions like these plague Americans and cause us to be anxious about the future of the land that we love. Individuals may come to different conclusions, but there seems to be a common thread – the deep-seated feeling that we need to improve our country. Our culture is increasingly immoral, the family structure is threatened from all sides, and government programs consistently overreach, creating massive debt.

    In this powerful and prophetic book, nationally syndicated columnist and trusted political commentator Cal Thomas offers a diagnosis of what exactly is wrong with the United States by drawing parallels to once-great empires and nations that declined into oblivion. Citing the historically proven 250-year pattern of how superpowers rise and fall, he predicts that America’s expiration date is just around the corner and shows us how to escape their fate.

    Through biblical insights and hard-hitting truth, he reminds us that real change comes when America looks to God instead of Washington. Scripture, rather than politics, is the GPS he uses to point readers to the right road – a road of hope, life, and change. Because, he says, if we’re willing to seek God first, learn from history, and make changes at the individual and community level, we can not only survive, but thrive, again.

    This powerful, timely, and much-needed perspective is a must-read for anyone who longs for a promising future for our great nation.

  • Beyond Valor : A World War 2 Story Of Extraordinary Heroism, Sacrificial Lo

    $26.99

    A miraculous true story of a soldier’s unspeakable heroism, a teenage woman’s unfailing love, and the faith that secured them all.

    On April 12, 1945, as a fleet of American B-29 bombers flew toward Japan, disaster struck: a phosphorous bomb detonated inside one of the planes. Staff Sergeant Henry E. Red Erwin absorbed the blast of burning phosphorous and threw overboard the still-flaming bomb, then collapsed from the third-degree burns over much of his body.

    Erwin’s plane diverted to a military hospital to try to save him, and President Truman ordered Erwin be awarded the Medal of Honor. General Curtis LeMay ordered a squad of airmen on a 1,000-mile mission to smash their way into a display case and steal a medal of honor before Erwin died.

    Meanwhile, a courageous teenage bride set out on her own mission, one of against-all-odds healing. Her mission’s success would mean an entirely new destiny for the twenty-three-year-old warrior–and years later make possible the birth of the book’s author, Jon Erwin. For Love and Honor is an extraordinary tale of bravery, heroism, faith, and devotion.

  • 2 Men From Babylon

    $24.99

    What roles do King Nebuchadnezzar, ruler of ancient Babylon, and Donald J. Trump, 45th president of the United States, play in God furthering His kingdom? In Two Men from Babylon, Wallace Henley brings into perspective how God uses unlikely leaders to bring about His plans and purpose. Here is a masterfully constructed book that tears the camouflage off our times and looks intensely at what is going on in our crazy era on the eve of a year of destiny-and perhaps for civilization itself. Here you will:

    *Consider the possibility that God made Donald Trump president
    *Learn where the age of Trump might fit into history
    *Get a feel for the White House Mystique
    *Sense the spiritual atmosphere of the Oval Office
    *Discover the strategic role of the church related to politics
    *Understand why places of great power are vulnerable to demonic attack
    .* . . and much more

    The heart of this book is found in two Scripture passages, It is God who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings (Daniel 2:21); and This Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14). Two Men from Babylon summarizes the truth of these verses in revealing that God has grand purposes for time and history; there are manifestations of the kingdom that appear throughout finite time and history; the church is the primary agent for the expansion of this kingdom; nations are of strategic importance in the fulfillment of God’s plan; and it is God who establishes and removes the leaders of those nations. Thus, the Lord of History is the focus of this book, but Nebuchadnezzar and Donald Trump play an essential role in His story.

  • They Were Soldiers

    $34.99

    New York Times bestselling author Joseph Galloway and coauthor Marvin Wolf bring to life the inspirational stories of Vietnam veterans who returned home from the lost war to enrich America’s present and future.

    For decades, the soldiers who served in Vietnam were shunned by the American public and ignored by their government. Many were vilified or had their struggles to reintegrate with society magnified by distorted depictions of veterans as dangerous or demented. Even today, Vietnam veterans have not received their due. Until now.

    In this groundbreaking new book, veterans Joseph Galloway, New York Times bestselling author of We Were Soldiers Once and Young, and award-winning author Marvin J. Wolf reveal the private lives of those who returned from Vietnam to make astonishing contributions in science, medicine, business, and other arenas, changing America for the better. These profiles are touching and courageous and often startling. They include veterans both known and unknown, including Frederick Wallace (Fred) Smith, founder of FedEx, Marshall Carter who became chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, and Eileen Moore, a former combat nurse and current appellate judge who also serves as a mentor in California’s Combat Veterans Court.

    Engrossing, moving, and eye-opening, They Were Soldiers is a magnificent tribute that gives long overdue honor and recognition to the soldiers of this forgotten generation.

  • Hunting The Unabomber

    $26.99

    From Lis Wiehl, New York Times bestselling author and storyteller extraordinaire (Steve Berry), with New York Times bestselling crime writer Lisa Pulitzer, the definitive, gripping account of the longest pursuit in FBI history: the quest to find and capture the domestic terrorist Ted Kaczynski.

    On April 3, 1996, a team of FBI agents closed in on an isolated cabin in remote Montana, marking the end of the longest and most expensive investigation in FBI history. The cabin’s lone inhabitant was a former mathematics prodigy and wunderkind professor who had abandoned society decades earlier. Few people knew his name, Theodore Kaczynski, but everyone knew the mayhem and death associated with his nickname: the Unabomber.

    For two decades, Kaczynski had masterminded a campaign of random terror, killing and maiming innocent people through bombs sent in untraceable packages. The FBI task force charged with finding the perpetrator of these horrifying crimes grew to 150 people, yet his identity remained a maddening mystery. Then, in 1995, a manifesto from the Unabomber was published in the New York Times and Washington Post, resulting in a cascade of tips–including the one that cracked the case.

    With access to new primary sources and exclusive interviews with key law enforcement officials, New York Times bestselling author and former federal prosecutor Lis Wiehl meticulously reconstructs the white-knuckle, tension-filled hunt to identify and capture the mysterious killer. A revelatory, historical thriller of the years-long battle of wits between the FBI and the brilliant-but-criminally insane Kaczynski, Hunting the Unabomber is the spellbinding account of the most complex and captivating manhunt in American history.

  • 1st Adam Vs Last Adam

    $5.99

    First Adam vs. Last Adam offers a viewpoint of America’s embrace of our national government and those citizens who also embrace the kingdom of God. The current inability of our political leaders to find workable solutions to our country’s problems is troubling for many Americans. Confidence in our leader’s ability to effectively govern is a low point.

    This brief commentary takes the reader back to the fundamental perspective of the original writers of the Declaration of Independence. This document forms the basis of America’s initial desire to be free from onerous laws imposed by the British sovereign.

    Today our government has reassumed the role of a sovereign king in many matters. That authority needs to be challenged with the authority of the kingdom of God.

    This is a call for Christians to reflect upon misguided leadership offering inadequate solutions.

  • Gods Spies : The Stasi’s Cold War Espionage Campaign Inside The Church

    $25.00

    The real-life cloak-and-dagger story of how East Germany’s notorious spy agency infiltrated churches here and abroadEast Germany only existed for a short forty years, but in that time, the country’s secret police, the Stasi, developed a highly successful church department that-using persuasion rather than threats-managed to recruit an extraordinary stable of clergy spies. Pastors, professors, seminary students, and even bishops spied on colleagues, other Christians, and anyone else they could report about to their handlers in the Stasi. Thanks to its pastor spies, the Church Department (official name: Department XX/4) knew exactly what was happening and being planned in the country’s predominantly Lutheran churches. Yet ultimately it failed in its mission: despite knowing virtually everything about East German Christians, the Stasi couldn’t prevent the church-led protests that erupted in 1989 and brought down the Berlin Wall.

  • Chosen Wars : How Judaism Became An American Religion

    $18.00

    An important beginning to understanding the truth over myth about Judaism in American history (New York Journal of Books), Steven R. Weisman tells the dramatic story of the personalities that fought each other and shaped this ancient religion in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

    The struggles that produced a redefinition of Judaism illuminate the larger American experience and the efforts by all Americans to reconcile their faith with modern demands. The narrative begins with the arrival of the first Jews in New Amsterdam and plays out over the nineteenth century as a massive immigration takes place at the dawn of the twentieth century.First there was the practical matter of earning a living. Many immigrants had to work on the Sabbath or traveled as peddlers to places where they could not keep kosher. Doctrine was put aside or adjusted. To take their places as equals, American Jews rejected their identity as a separate nation within America. Judaism became an American religion.

  • Accidental Presidents : Eight Men Who Changed America

    $30.00

    The strength and prestige of the American presidency has waxed and waned since George Washington. Accidental Presidents looks at eight men who came to the office without being elected to it. It demonstrates how the character of the man in that powerful seat affects the nation and world.

    Eight men have succeeded to the presidency when the incumbent died in office. In one way or another they vastly changed our history. Only Theodore Roosevelt would have been elected in his own right. Only TR, Truman, Coolidge, and LBJ were re-elected.

    John Tyler succeeded William Henry Harrison who died 30 days into his term. He was kicked out of his party and became the first president threatened with impeachment. Millard Fillmore succeeded esteemed General Zachary Taylor. He immediately sacked the entire cabinet and delayed an inevitable Civil War by standing with Henry Clay’s compromise of 1850. Andrew Johnson, who succeeded our greatest president, sided with remnants of the Confederacy in Reconstruction. Chester Arthur, the embodiment of the spoils system, was so reviled as James Garfield’s successor that he had to defend himself against plotting Garfield’s assassination; but he reformed the civil service. Theodore Roosevelt broke up the trusts. Calvin Coolidge silently cooled down the Harding scandals and preserved the White House for the Republican Herbert Hoover and the Great Depression. Truman surprised everybody when he succeeded the great FDR and proved an able and accomplished president. Lyndon B. Johnson was named to deliver Texas electorally. He led the nation forward on Civil Rights but failed on Vietnam.

    Accidental Presidents adds immeasurably to our understanding of the power and limits of the American presidency in critical times.

  • Story Of Freedom

    $16.95

    If the Son will set you free, you will be free indeed. Freedom is quickly disappearing in the Western world. Big government tyranny is on the rise just about everywhere. Liberty is hardly a value anymore in the minds of the masses. The question facing this generation is real and concerning: Will we leave our children and grandchildren in prison camps and gulags? The Christian West provided a legacy of liberty for over 800 years, and it is a heritage that is quickly disappearing and soon to be forgotten. Many have enjoyed the blessing of liberty over the centuries. Hundreds of millions of people have fled tyranny for safe haven in Christian countries. But, the heritage is almost gone now. Many have enjoyed the fruits of liberty but so few do anything to produce it. It is for Christians to regain a new appreciation for true liberty in Christ. Christians must relearn the biblical definition of freedom and the value of liberty. And Christians must teach their children the great heritage of Western liberties. This book recovers this heritage and tells the thrilling story of liberty in the Western world. These are the very best stories of history, as Western liberties developed through the influence of Christian pastors and leaders over 2,000 years. The reader will learn of the critical battle for the Magna Carta, the Swiss struggle for independence with William Tell, the Scottish War for Independence with William Wallace, the Dutch War for Independence with William the Silent, the battle for religious liberties in the 17th century, and America’s War for Independence and the securing of the Bill of Rights. The message of this book is simple – the time has come to recover the heritage and leave a legacy for liberty. This begins by defining liberty rightly and realizing that true freedom is only possible by the blood of Jesus Christ. This is freedom from sin, freedom indeed. It is the bedrock freedom that gives birth to all other freedoms. *2nd Edition, previously published as Freedom

  • Something Beautiful Happened

    $26.00

    Seventy years after her grandmother helped hide a Jewish family on a Greek island during World War II, a woman sets out to track down their descendants and discovers a new way to understand tragedy, forgiveness, and the power of kindness.

    Yvette Manessis Corporon grew up listening to her grandmother’s stories about how the people of the small Greek island Erikousa hid a Jewish family a tailor named Savvas and his daughters from the Nazis during World War II. Nearly 2,000 Jews from that area died in the concentration camps, but even though everyone on Erikousa knew Savvas and his family were hiding on the island, no one ever gave them up, and the family survived the war.
    Years later, Yvette couldn’t get the story of the Jewish tailor out of her head. She decided to track down the man’s descendants and eventually found them in Israel. Their tearful reunion was proof to her that evil doesn’t always win. But just days after she made the connection, her cousin’s child was gunned down in a parking lot in Kansas, a victim of a Neo-Nazi out to inflict as much harm as he could. Despite her best hopes, she was forced to confront the fact that seventy years after the Nazis were defeated, it was still happening today.

    As Yvette and her family wrestled with the tragedy in their own lives, the lessons she learned from the survivors of the Holocaust helped her confront and make sense of the present.
    In beautifully told interweaving storylines, the past and present come together in a nuanced, heartfelt story about the power of faith, the importance of kindness, and the courage to stand up for what s right in the face of great evil.

    After three years of construction, the new Armenian church in Mosul, Iraq, was finally ready for the dedication ceremony. Instead, the architect Ziyad Hani found himself a witness as Islamic extremists dynamited the beautifully designed sanctuary. Still today, the pain can be seen in his face. As a Christian, he has fled his hometown and lives in Germany.
    In Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State, or ISIS, has been deliberately destroying the culture of a region that is the cradle of our own society’s spiritual roots. Andreas Knapp, a priest who works with refugees in Germany, decided to retrace the refugee trail, visiting camps for displaced people in northern Iraq. Here he found Christians who today still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus. The uprooted remnant of ancient churches, they doggedly continue to practice their faith despite the odds. Their shocking eyewitness reports help us understand why millions of people are fleeing the Middle East. And their indomitable spirit provides inspiration to religious minorities everywhere.

As the soldiers deplaned, the lump in my throat began to swell, and I fled into the cockpit. Alone and out of sight, leaning on the closed door with my hands covering my face, I burst into tears. I told myself, never let them see me cry and I never did. Stuffing tears through emotional encounters were unending, and this was only the beginning.

    This book is a tribute to those who served so well. You are not forgotten! Read and remember, the stories of heroes of Vietnam.

  • If You Can Keep It

    $26.00

    From the #1 New York Timesbestselling author Eric Metaxas comes If You Can Keep It, a new book that is part history and part manifesto, steeped in a critical analysis of our founding fathers’ original intentions for America. Two hundred and forty years after the Declaration of Independence, it examines how we as a nation are living up to our founders’ lofty vision for liberty and justice.
    If You Can Keep It is at once a thrilling review of America’s uniqueness, and a sobering reminder that America’s greatness cannot continue unless we truly understand what our founding fathers meant for us to be. The book includes a stirring call-to-action for every American to understand the ideals behind the noble experiment in ordered liberty that is America. It also paints a vivid picture of the tremendous fragility of that experiment and explains why that fragility has been dangerously forgotten and in doing so it lays out our own responsibility to live those ideals and carry on those freedoms. Metaxas believes America is not a nation bounded by ethnic identity or geography, but rather by a radical and unprecedented idea, based upon liberty and freedom. It’s time to reconnect to that idea before America loses the very foundation for what made it exceptional in the first place.

  • God Israel And You

    $16.95

    Issues like abortion, homosexuality, and old-young earth debate often drive wedges both between the church and the world. Another polarizing issue is the Arab-Israeli conflict. Evangelical support for Israel among the younger generation is dropping at an alarming rate. Why is there such division between the church and the world and even among believers themselves about this issue?

    God, Israel, and You attempts to bridge the gap by providing a courageous and honest look at Jesus, His involvement in the world, and how it relates to the issues of today. It makes the case for Israel by being pro-God and explaining His redemptive purposes for the Arabs to a new generation through scripture, history, and morality.

    Believers are called to be ready with an answer for the faith that is within us. God, Israel, and You is about answers; it’s about the knowledge of God, finding hope in this chaotic world, and recognizing the story where we find a faithful God who is intimately involved with the affairs of mankind. Rather than coming at the issues with an us-versus-them mentality, God, Israel, and You reveals a God who is involved, who gets His hands dirty, and embraces the paradoxes of the Bible: it is both straightforward and mysterious, accessible and infinite, supernatural and practical. When we can accept the supernatural, we can recognize that God is using both Jews and Arabs, and the next generation in a way that reflects the character of Jesus, and we can better understand God, Israel, and ourselves.

  • Keep The Faith Volume 1 On Education

    $16.95

    If there is one thing that we ought to re-examine in light of the decline of the Christian faith and the ongoing generational apostasy, it is this matter of education. It is time to get back to the drawing board, and ask the basic questions concerning the philosophy of education and child training. Now more than ever, we need to examine the wisdom of previous generations, particularly the teaching of those genuine Christian pastors and leaders who lived before the demise of the Christian West. If we would keep the faith for future generations, it would be prudent to root ourselves more solidly in the godly wisdom of previous centuries.
    Featuring original source quotations from church fathers such as Clement, Polycarp, Justin Martyr, Ignatius, Barnabas, Lanctantius, Didache, Eusebius, Jerome, Chrysostom, Augustine, Bede, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Richard Baxter, Increase Mather, John Wesley, A.A.

  • Excellent Established Eternal

    Few Christians realize the significance of Covenant. It is the foundation, the authority and the basis of what God has done, is doing today, and will do in the future.

    Excellent, Established, Eternal is the antithesis of nearly 40 years of extensive study, research and prayer. Within these pages, the reader will gain a thorough understanding of what Covenant is and how it relates to the believer. This is a timely subject for today’s believer who is faced with a continuous barrage of assaults against the reliability of scripture.

    Connie Fauth does not write as a theologian, rather as one who has seen the goodness of the Lord shown forth in His Everlasting Covenant

  • LAbri (Expanded)

    $19.99

    In 1955 an American family moved into a chalet on the side of a steep Swiss alp. They did not know exactly why God had brought them there, what He wanted them to do, or even where the money to live on would come from. But He began opening doors, and people with questions about life’s meaning began finding the way to their home.

    Edith Schaeffer, wife of Dr. Francis Schaeffer, tells the remarkable story of how God led them step by step, as that one small chalet grew into a whole community. It took the name L’Abri (French for shelter). Day by day, God faithfully provided for their family, and eventually for the entire community.

    The Schaeffers believed that truth must be demonstrated as well as debated. They wanted to show the world through the transformed lifestyle of a believing community that the personal-infinite God is really here in our generation. In a society losing the ability to distinguish between Christian and non-Christian values, truth and untruth, good and evil, L’Abri equipped people to make that distinction.

    For more than thirty years, people have come to L’Abri from all walks of life and from many countries, searching for truth and reality. There they find someone who cares for them personally, who listens carefully to their questions, and who gives them answers based on an uncompromising commitment to Biblical truth. L’Abri now has branches in several other countries and has affected the lives of literally thousands of people around the world.

    Though their bodies lie cold and dormant, the grave cannot contain the influence these seven men have had on today’s world. They continue to rule because they have altered the thinking of society. They generated philosophies that have been ardently grasped by masses of people but are erroneous and anti-scriptural. Today these ideas pervade our schools, businesses, homes, even the church. As we continue to unkowningly subscribe to their philosophies we keep the grave open for: Charles Darwin, Julius Wellhausen, John Dewey, Sigmund Freud, John Maynard Keynes, Soren Kierkegaard and Karl Marx.
