According to the book description of Blood in the Streets, “The world is smaller than it used to be. We all live closer together, brushing elbows more often, getting on each other s nerves, causing confrontation to happen more and more. It is inevitable. When the pool gets crowded, people bump elbows. Sometimes I wonder what has become of America. When I grew up, we didn’t t even lock our doors at night. Only a fool would do that now. I suspect that the breakdown of society was caused by a combination of many things. Our families are no longer healthy and intact. Blood, murder and violence on television has desensitized us to killing in general. The proliferation of online pornography has taught us that women are not people, but simply objects to be used for our own pleasure. The criminal justice system has become largely impotent and ineffective, allowing people to commit murder, almost with impunity.”

According to the book description of Bond of Unseen Blood, “Evan Novack, nicknamed Bear by his friends, can pull back a 90-pound longbow and shoot the face off a silver dollar at 100 yards. At the tender age of 14 he had already wrestled a black bear and won! Now at age 34 Bear towers over most men, and weighs in at 250 pounds of powerful, back strapping sinew and bone-breaking muscle. In short, Bear is the envy of every man, woman and child in North Fork. Every mother's son wishes he were Bear . except for Bear himself. Though Bear's skills and accomplishments are the stuff of local legend, Bear is daily tortured by his own private pain and sense of overwhelming loss. Six years earlier, Bear had been separated from his five-year-old son during a bitter divorce, but try as he may, Bear has failed to relocate the son he loves more than life itself.


However, unbeknownst to Bear, his son is now orphaned and living in a foster home a thousand miles away. As Bear continues his unrelenting search for his son, little does he realize that his son has already located him and is on his way to North Fork. But tragedy steps in at the brink of reunion, and his son is kidnapped by a sociopathic killer who has vowed to destroy Bear and all he holds dear. It will take all Bear's skill and prowess as a woodsman to track down and save his son from the deranged killer. In "Bond of Unseen Blood", Bear must prove his legendary status or die trying! Read this exciting, action-packed thriller to see if Bear has what it takes to save himself and his son, while simultaneously winning over the woman of his dreams!”


According to the book description of Church and State, “With the passage of the Freedom From Religion Act, it is now against the law for public officials to talk about God in public. There are also two more bills pending: one would strip churches of their tax-exempt status, while the second would remove the phrase In God We Trust from all currency. For President Dan Vermeulen, a newly converted Christian, this is the ultimate challenge. Can he remain silent and still be true to God, or does his faith demand action? The question is suddenly answered with the mysterious appearance of Joshua Moses Talbert, a modern-day prophet of God who becomes known as The Bulletproof Preacher . But more questions arise in the wake of a failed assassination attempt and the abduction of the President. Read this gripping thriller about the men and women who fight to protect the religious freedoms we all have come to know and love, and answer the question for yourself: Can you remain silent, or does your faith demand action?”

Laughter and Tears: Living both sides of life
Skip Coryell  More Info

According to the book description of Laughter and Tears: Living both sides of life, “Pain will always change you. It will make you better, or it will make you worse. The key to growing through that pain, is your positive response. It is your choice. You, alone, decide. M. Scott Peck, in his now-famous book The Road Less Traveled made the following statement: A wise man welcomes pain and sees it as a way to grow. During my first divorce, I clung to that saying, milking it for all it was worth, using it to help me grow as much as possible. But by the time my second divorce rolled around, I was so tired of pain, that I cried like a baby. I lashed out. I revolted. No! I don t want to grow anymore! Please God, let me stay a fool! But God, our loving father, calmly stroked the furled brow of my heart and said, Relax child. Just relax. You don t have to be perfect. You just have to survive. Relax, and I will help you. And God did help me, but in the most unexpected way. God taught me how to laugh. While growing through my pain, I accumulated a smidgen of wisdom and perspective, and these two traits pointed me to joy and laughter - the other side of life.”
