Just Walk Across the Room by Bill Hybels

This is a fantastic book filled with real life stories of how to share your faith.More than that, it’s a challenge to be missional in this world. ~Pastor Joe

From the back cover:

In Just Walk Across the Room, Bill Hybels introduces the next era in personal evangelism with a natural, relational approach that follows Jesus’ own example. When Christ “walked” clear across the cosmos 2,000 years ago, he had no formulas and no script—just an offer of redemption to people like us, many of whom were neck deep in pain of their own making.

Astounding things happen when you follow the model set by Jesus. Emphasizing the leading of the Holy Spirit, Hybels invites you to step out of your “Circle of Comfort” and into encounters with people who long for someone to take an interest in them—men and women with stories to tell and hearts that yearn to experience God’s love reaching out to them through your smile, your encouragement, your transparency, your friendship.

Author Lynette Eason

I’ve recently read two Christian suspense novels by Lynette Eason. What I particularly liked about both of these, besides being good stories of suspense, was that the main characters are already Christians. In a lot of Christian fiction I’ve read, there is the predictable “tension” of whether or not the main character will be a believer by the end of the book. In these two books, the focus is the story itself, but we still get to see how the characters, as Christians, deal with trouble. ~Laura

No One to Trust by Lynette Eason

From Amazon:

Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she’s been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover?

The search for her husband—and answers—takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn’t know who to believe.




Nowhere to Turn by Lynette Eason

From Amazon:

The day Danielle Harding takes her eleven-year-old son and flees from her abusive husband is the same day Kurt Harding dies. A relieved Dani believes she and her son are finally safe–but in reality, things are just heating up. When Kurt was alive, he took something important from a mysterious individual—who wants the item back and believes Dani now has it. As she and her son run for their lives, they have nowhere to turn, until she hires Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge and goes into hiding. Unfortunately, she won’t be able to hide for long . . .
