Maeve’s Times: In Her Own Words
Product rating: 4.2 with 98 reviews
Before she was a bestselling novelist, Maeve Binchy started out as a columnist for The Irish Times
. Her articles—focused on the famous and the obscure alike—were filled with the warmth, wit, and keen human interest that readers would come to love in her fiction.
From royal weddings to boring airplane companions, from Samuel Beckett to Margaret Thatcher, from life as a waitress to “senior moments,” Maeve’s Times
gives us five decades of Binchy’s insight into a changing world—revealing her characteristic directness, laugh-out-loud humor, and unswerving gaze into the true heart of a matter.

Product rating: 4.8 with 495 reviews
Who Will Usher in Earth’s Final Days?
Are we living in the end times? Is it possible that the players depicted in the book of Revelation could be out in force today? And if they are, would you know how to recognize them?
In Agents of the Apocalypse, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah does what no prophecy expert has done before. He explores the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players―the exiled, the martyrs, the elders, the victor, the king, the judge, the 144,000, the witnesses, the false prophet, and the beast.
One by one, Dr. Jeremiah delves into their individual personalities and motives, and the role that each plays in biblical prophecy. Then he provides readers with the critical clues and information needed to recognize their presence and power in the world today.
The stage is set, and the curtain is about to rise on Earth’s final act. Will you be ready?

Stronger: How Hard Times Reveal God’s Greatest Power
by: Baker Books
Product rating: 5.0 with 26 reviews
When we think of success, we think of words like bigger
, and better
. Bigger paycheck, more security, better reputation. But what if God’s perspective on success was radically different than our own? What if the things we seek to avoid–pain, suffering, weakness, insecurity–were the very things he used to mold us into his image?
With insights born from his own difficult journey, Clayton King offers readers a truly liberating understanding of weakness and suffering–not as God’s punishment, but as his pruning. Revealing the God who is a companion in our most difficult seasons, King shows us that when we are in Christ, our deepest pain becomes the source of our greatest power, and our times of testing become our strongest testimony. Anyone who struggles to make sense of seemingly hopeless situations will find in this book not only hope for a brighter future but purpose in their imperfect present.
