Mere Christianity

Shiloh Autumn (Shiloh Legacy)

Shiloh Autumn (Shiloh Legacy)
by Bodie and Brock Thoene

Who could have known their way of life would be blown away with the wind . . . in one day?

In the autumn of 1931, Birch and Trudy Tucker are proud of what they’ve built with their love and labor in Shiloh, Arkansas. The farm produces fine cotton. The pantry and cellar are full of food for the winter. Tom and Bobby are old enough to help with the family chores but young enough to get into mischief. Little Joey is the joy of his mother’s heart.

To the Canfield family—once sharecroppers—Shiloh is a dream come true. Jefferson and Lily, their babies, and his parents, Hock and Willa-Mae, are reunited, and Jefferson farms his own land. Then, on October 1, 1931, disaster strikes. The cotton market collapses in Memphis, and the little town of Shiloh is hit hard. It will take a miracle to save what Birch and Trudy and so many others have labored to build. Yet even the forces of nature seem to conspire against them. . . .

Based on the lives of Bodie's grandparents, Shiloh Autumn is an inspiring story of courage, faith, love, and the healing strength of forgiveness in the face of loss and betrayal

The Comeback: It's Not Too Late and You're Never Too Far

The Comeback: It's Not Too Late and You're Never Too Far
by Louie Giglio

There comes a time in all of our lives we find ourselves in that place where only God can come through for us; that place where we all need a comeback.

Louie Giglio's The Comeback shares how the need for a comeback is real. As a pastor, he walks with people at every stage of life, people struggling with every kind of challenge and loss. He shares how even his own story has been one of ups and downs. In what he describes as one of the darkest periods of his life, Giglio wasn't sure if he'd ever be a normally functioning person again. For Giglio, The Comeback was born out of real places with real people.

The Comeback illuminates how the Bible is the story of the greatest comeback of all-the one that makes every other comeback possible-the resurrection. The darkness took its best shot at Jesus, but hell's power was not enough to keep Him down. Wherever we find ourselves in life, God is there and Jesus is enough even when you can't come back. Because the grave is not empty and Jesus is alive, we can all rise from ashes with new purpose and hope.

In Grandma's Attic

In Grandma's Attic
by Arleta Richardson

Remember when you were a child--when all the world was new, and the smallest object a thing of wonder? Arleta Richardson remembers: the funny wearable wire contraption hidden in the dusty attic, the century-old schoolchild's slate that belonged to Grandma, an ancient trunk filled with quilt pieces--each with its own special story--and the button basket, a miracle of mysteries. And best of all was the remarkable grandmother who made magic of all she touched, bringing the past alive as only a born storyteller could.

Here are those marvelous tales--faithfully recalled for the delight of young and old alike, a touchstone to another day when life was simpler, perhaps richer; when the treasures of family life and love were passed from generation to generation by a child's questions, and the legends that followed enlarged our faith. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
