After a routine mission on Earth to stop the minions of Hell from obtaining a potential weapon of massive power goes horribly wrong, Michael is left with a plethora of unanswered questions. Seeking the answers to his questions, Michael begins to unravel the web of lies which is the story of Heaven and Hell. As he approaches the truth of matters, Michael's existence takes a drastic turn.

graphic times

by Joe Costanzo: Paperback and Ebook - Graphic Times is the story of Anthony Logan, a reporter seeking redemption for a blunder that disrupted a sensational murder trial and set the defendant free. His quest takes him to the red-hot, exo-metro landscape of America's New West, where the unrepentant killer, a mysterious apparition, marauding teens, an edgy love interest, and the elements test his resolve. The protagonist is a man who throughout his life has viewed the world through the black-and-white columns of his Times, ever eschewing nuance, color, and ambiguity. But in pursuing the scoop that will restore his reputation, he awakens as if from a dream to a vivid and shifting reality that compels him to tell his story with a graphic exuberance. Perhaps it was the Blessed Virgin Mary in a kayak in the Arizona sky, or his spiky sidekick Jettie, or maybe it was the boulder that a wayward gargoyle dropped on his head while he was romancing Sunday Shaw at the bottom of a slot canyon that transformed him. Whatever the source, by the end of his journey, he comes to understand what Henry David Thoreau meant by his admonition: "Read not the Times; read the Eternities."

between two worlds

by Mary and Juliette Lia: Paperback and Ebook - Before the summer of 2003 I never would have imagined anything like this could happen; that cancer would touch our family – take my child. We were ordinary people; nice house, dog, cat. I loved being a Mom. We played: marching band and dress up, danced in the rain, stomped barefoot in puddles, finger painted, baked bread and cookies, rode bikes, read stories, built forts and snowmen. Life was busy. There was school; homework done at the kitchen table, plays, concerts , class trips and later on dances. Brownies, Little League and Youth Soccer. My Mom told me one day, “Enjoy it. These will be some of the best times of your life.” How right she was. This is the story of my daughter Juliette who passed from cancer at age nineteen; told in three parts through Juliette's journals and poems covering the last seven years of her life, part 2 consist of my thoughts and recollections of memorable times that affected me most, be it triumph or tragedy, frolic or fright. Part 3 details the time after my daughter's passing when I hired a medium in an effort to communicate with the other side. I know in my heart Juliette is alive and existing elsewhere. I hope to invoke similar journeys of discovery in those who have lost a child. Juliette told me through a medium, "I’m not dead, not really dead. Not like people think".

the last blackrobe of indiana

by John McMullen: Paperback and Ebook - From the forgotten history of 1830s Indiana, John William McMullen unearths the true story of Benjamin Petit, a French Attorney turned missionary priest, and his mission to the Potawatomi People in the Diocese of Vincennes, Indiana. Under the urging of the saintly Bishop Simon Bruté, Petit joined the northern Indiana Potawatomi tribes in 1837, a year before their forced removal west. McMullen retells the incredible journey of Petit who traveled with the Potawatomi People and became part of their history. "The deportation of Chief Menominee and his tribe of Potawatomi Indians from their reservation at Twin Lakes in Marshall County, in September, 1838, is one of the darkest pages in the history of Indiana. The farther in time we get away from this event the clearer this will appear and the more interest will be attached to the route which is consecrated by the blood of that helpless people at the hands of a civilized and Christian state: The Potawatomi Trail. "Of all the names connected with this crime, there is one, Father Benjamin Petit, the Christian martyr, which stands like a star in the firmament, growing brighter and it will shine on through for ages to come." - Benjamin Stuart, Indiana journalist, early 20th century "For American Indians the scars of injustice inflicted upon them in the past are deep, painful, and, tragically, are inherited from one generation to the next. Those injustices have become ghosts in the cultural memory of a people crying out for justice. We must fully disclose the past in order to deal with the many years and generations of unresolved grief and distrust." -Thomas Hamilton, member of Citizen Potawatomi Nation. John William McMullen resides in Evansville, Indiana with his wife and children.

by Rick Herrick: 1st Ed. Paperback and Ebook - The Case Against Evangelical Christianity is a hard-hitting attack against Christian fundamentalism. It seeks to disprove the Evangelical claim that the Bible is the in-errant word of God. In addition to offering a thorough critique of Evangelical Christianity, this book presents material reconciling Darwin's theory of evolution with the Christian faith. It also explores new approaches to understanding revelation and redefines Christianity away from belief and toward a love that was central to the life and teachings of Jesus.
