  1. Fire Road

    Kim Phuc Thi

    $16.99
    Get out Run We must leave this place They are going to destroy this whole place Go, children, run first Go now

    These were the final shouts nine year-old Kim Phuc heard before her world dissolved into flames--before napalm bombs fell from the sky, burning away her clothing and searing deep into her skin. It's a moment forever captured, an iconic image that has come to define the horror and violence of the Vietnam War. Kim was left for dead in a morgue; no one expected her to survive the attack. Napalm meant fire, and fire meant death.

    Against all odds, Kim lived--but her journey toward healing was only beginning. When the napalm bombs dropped, everything Kim knew and relied on exploded along with them: her home, her country's freedom, her childhood innocence and happiness. The coming years would be marked by excruciating treatments for her burns and unrelenting physical pain throughout her body, which were constant reminders of that terrible day. Kim survived the pain of her body ablaze, but how could she possibly survive the pain of her devastated soul?

    Fire Road is the true story of how she found the answer in a God who suffered Himself; a Savior who truly understood and cared about the depths of her pain. Fire Road is a story of horror and hope, a harrowing tale of a life changed in an instant--and the power and resilience that can only be found in the power of God's mercy and love. Learn More

  7. Beggar's Daughter

    Jessica Harris

    $14.99

    Jessica Harris was seventeen years old when she threw away her ambition to become a doctor and, instead, tried to figure out how to get into the porn industry. She was exposed to pornography at the age of the 13, and by the time she left for college, it was all that mattered.

    Feeling like she would never be worth anything more than a body on a screen, she tried to figure out how to 'apply' to adult websites. Being unable to figure out that process likely saved her life.

    Beggar's Daughter is her journey in detail that she has never before shared. Incorporating statistics, stories from girls she's worked with, and even excerpts from her own journals, she gives readers a candid glimpse into the heart, mind, and struggle of a female porn addict.

    Since its publication, Beggar's Daughter has been used by pastors, counselors, and recovery groups. Find out more information at www.beggarsdaughter.com

  8. $24.99

    A page-turning story of the Pilgrims, the courageous band of freedom-seekers who set out for a new life for themselves and forever changed the course of history.

    Once a year at Thanksgiving, we encounter Pilgrims as folksy people in funny hats before promptly forgetting them. In the centuries since America began, the Pilgrims have been relegated to folklore and children's stories, fairy-tale mascots for holiday parties and greeting cards.

    The true story of the Pilgrim Fathers could not be more different. Beginning with the execution of two pastors deviating from the Elizabethan Church of England, the Pilgrims' great journey was one of courageous faith, daring escape, and tenuous survival. Theirs is the story of refugees who fled intense religious persecution; of dreamers who voyaged the Atlantic and into the unknown when all other attempts had led to near-certain death; of survivors who struggled with newfound freedom. Loneliness led to starvation, tension gave way to war with natives, and suspicion broke the back of the very freedom they endeavored to achieve.

    Despite the pain and turmoil of this high stakes triumph, the Pilgrim Fathers built the cornerstone for a nation dedicated to faith, freedom, and thankfulness. This is the epic story of the Pilgrims, an adventure that laid the bedrock for the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, and the American identity.

    Phil Robertson

    $16.99
    From the TV smash hit Duck Dynasty(R) comes a no-holds-barred autobiography of Phil Robertson and the three things that matter most to him: Faith, family, and ducks.

    It isn't often that a person can live a dream, but Phil Robertson--better known as the Duck Commander--has proven that it is possible with vision, hard work, helping hands, and an unshakable faith in the Almighty. Phil's is the remarkable story of one man who followed his faith in God and soon after invented a duck call that would begin an incredible journey to the life he had always dreamed of for himself and his family. In the love of his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the good life he always wanted.

    In Happy, Happy, Happy, you'll go beyond the scenes of Duck Dynasty and learn about Phil's colorful past and the wild road to the blessed life he leads today. Before, Phil's passion for the outdoors led him down some shady paths, and as a young proprietor of a rough bar, he says, he lived a life of "romping, stomping, and ripping." But through it all, Phil felt he was a "called" man--called to live off the land, called to leave a career in football for duck hunting, called to create a new kind of duck call, and finally, called to follow God and lead a life of faith.

    In this eye-opening book, you'll feel like you're sitting face-to-face with Phil as he tells his story, and you'll see that his enthusiasm for duck hunting and the Lord is no act--it is truly who he is. Learn More
