Excerpt


Born a slave, Sojourner Truth would spread the fires of freedom all the way to Congress. As a woman, she would boldly voice a link between the plight of slaves and that of American females. Facing a life without hope, she would receive a call from God to preach a deeply felt message--that people best show their love for God by their concern for others.

Wherever she appeared, the wise words and electrifying presence of Sojourner Truth brought audiences to their feet. The lengthy shadow cast by her near-six-foot frame and the challenge to injustice issued by her stinging speeches have secured her a place in American history--a place as a woman of courage and faith. Softcover.

Excerpt


This inspiring book gives you a splendid example of how to live as a Christian in a secular environment that can be indifferent or hostile to your Faith. For Elisabeth Leseur had two great loves: God, and her husband Felix. Felix loved Elisabeth as well; yet to their mutual sorrow, he couldn't share the life of the Spirt that Elisabeth cherished. Occasionally the happiness of their life together in upper-class Parisian society was shattered by Felix's frustration and impatience. How could such an intelligent woman waste her time, as he saw it, with ignorant superstitions? Sometimes he and his friends would even ridicule and mock her faith.

But Elisabeth loved Felix too much to allow their home to degenerate into an emotional war zone. She realized that confrontations and arguments were useless; she chose instead to keep quiet and pray for Felix. In her secret diary, she recorded how she used his efforts to destroy her faith as means to grow in love for him and for God.

Throughout their life together, it grieved Elisabeth to think that Felix might be separated from her for all eternity because of his rejection of God. For her, life in Heaven wouldn't be happy without him. Yet when she died prematurely, Felix was still an unbeliever. The story doesn't end there. When Felix found this diary, he discovered how Elisabeth's whole life bore witness to the truth of the God she loved. In time, Felix was transformed by the diary and his memories of Elisabeth. He became a Christian and later, a priest. Now she may even be declared a saint. Elisabeth's diary and spirtual writings (all included in this one volume) map out for you a path to marital harmony and greater love for God--especially if you love someone who stands outside the faith. Let Elisabeth's two great loves, and her faith and perserverance, inspire you now.

Excerpt


Despite opposition and threats, the Gospel is going forth in Muslim nations, mostly because of brave believers like Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh. The two women met while studying theology in Turkey and decided to work together when they returned home to their native Iran. Though Islamic law forbid it, in three years they distributed over twenty thousand New Testaments and started two secret house churches. It seemed like a miracle that they evaded being caught for their efforts to spread the Gospel.

However in 2009, the two women were arrested and held in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran for 259 days. During their imprisonment they faced interrogations, intimidation, and threats of execution many times. In Captive in Iran, Rostampour and Amirizadeh share their remarkable story of survival and faith. You'll read how God used them to bring His light to one of the world's darkest places, giving hope to those who had lost everything, and facing fear with radical faith.
