Nothing But the Truth
Scripture is clear about the fact that we must be prepared to communicate the truth of the Gospel when given the opportunity – and do it with the right attitude. But even when your tone is gentle and respectful, what, specifically, should you say when asked or confronted about your faith? And what is your overall responsibility to unbelievers as a disciple of Christ?
Pastor John MacArthur responds to these very questions and more – with solid, biblical answers focused in four particular areas:
* Your attitude
* Your preparedness
* The content of your answers
* Your priority in witnessing
Combining a biblical study of evangelism, a rational defense of Christian beliefs, and a practical approach to evangelism, this book offers a well-rounded perspective that can help you gently and confidently give an answer for the hope you have in Christ.

Raised by parents of the “Greatest Generation,” I grew up in the late 40s and 50s – the youngest of four girls. I’ve been married for over 40 years to my high school sweetheart, claiming three children, their spouses and seven grandchildren as my most valued treasures.
For much of my life I worked in business management, eventually finding my way into ministry. I now work alongside the Sr. Pastor in a sizeable, thriving church. Today I view life from the perspective that the best is always yet to come, which keeps me perched & ready for that next great thing. You might have guessed (and rightly so) that I see life in superlatives.

The Hope of Refuge
by Cindy Woodsmall
Raised in foster care and now a widowed single parent, New Yorker Cara Moore struggles against poverty, fear, and a relentless stalker. When a trail of memories leads Cara and her daughter, Lori, away from the city toward an Amish community, she follows every lead, eager for answers to mysteries from her past and a fresh start. She quickly discovers that Dry Lake, Pennsylvania, is no place for an outsider.
But one Amish man, Ephraim Mast, dares to fulfill the command he believes that he received from God – “Be me to her” – despite how it threatens his way of life. Ephraim’s sister Deborah is fearful of the strange Englischer woman causing turmoil for her family, but keeps focused on the marriage and home she longs to begin with Mahlon Stolzfus. Her dreams are threatened when Mahlon begins behaving oddly, withdrawing, and causing concern for Deborah and Mahlon’s mother, Ada.
Will the run-down house that Ada envisions transforming unite them toward a common purpose – or push Mahlon away forever? As Ephraim is torn between trying to do what he believes is right and the requirements of his community, he risks losing everything, including a developing friendship with the guarded single mother. And he knows that long-held secrets about her family history ripple beneath the surface of Dry Lake – secrets with the power to tear apart the home Cara is desperately trying to find.
