What if angels really did come from the most unlikely of places? Sent to Planet Earth by his Maker, disguised as a homeless person, Enoch was on a mission: to rescue a man who, just seven months ago, was a responsible, churchgoing, happily married man and father of two. Then the slow fade began and John Jensen started questioning everything he once thought important, deeming much of it utterly meaningless. The only place his wife, Lydia, could go to escape her ongoing marital struggles was the church she attended the past seventeen years. But even there it seemed her desperate cries to God for help always went unanswered. That is, until Enoch appeared one Sunday morning, hair unkempt, wearing ragged clothing. To Lydia's great dismay, the old man was mocked and ridiculed by so many, ultimately banished to the last row of the sanctuary. One week later after church service, Lydia and her two children, Matthew and Grace, spotted the old man walking to the city park where he lived among many other homeless people. Later that night, Lydia felt God's strong urging to introduce herself to the man, not knowing he had been sent from Heaven as her Christmas miracle. In the days following her first visit to the homeless community in which the old man served as spiritual mentor, Lydia and her two children learned more about what it means to be true servants of God than she did in seventeen years at her church. But with John Jensen being Enoch's chief reason for coming to Planet Earth, would the severely depressed, apathetic man submit to the pulling of God's Holy Spirit, or was he already too far gone to be rescued? This story will greatly challenge all who read it...

What began for Ryan Tipton as a journey into the heart of Maricel Arcamo, a woman he met online just six months ago, deepens considerably after he travels halfway around the world just to meet her. After spending one perfect week together, everything quickly crumbles after he informs his new girlfriend one week later that he never went back to the States after all. This comes as a complete and total shock to her, because she actually saw him off at the airport last week. They even shared a tearful embrace as her family looked on, before he boarded his plane supposedly headed back to the US. But that simply wasn't the case. Instead, he remained in the Philippines another week to meet with two other Filipino women he'd also met on the same online dating site, both of whom were just as much in the dark about his secret betrayals as Maricel.Full of utter remorse for lying to the woman he knew deep down inside he truly loved, Tipton finally places a frantic 3 a.m. call to a man he met just last week, Ernesto Angeles, owner of Agape Coffee and Pastry Shoppe. After losing a daughter to suicide twenty years ago, a senseless death brought about by nothing more than a broken heart, he and his wife, Gloria, eventually turned their pain and grief into action, and set out to do all they could to help prevent anymore of these senseless suicides from occurring in their city. Since that time, thousands of lives were forever changed, most of whom were mixed couples, prompting many to believe that God Himself had ordained this loving Filipino couple to become guardian angels for so many of His hurting and needy people. But in an establishment where love, forgiveness and redemption reign supreme, after what Ryan did to Maricel, was it possible for them to ever be added to the long list of satisfied customers, or were they already too far gone for reconciliation...

But what they soon realized was that it reached far beyond Michigan Stadium. Chaos of unimaginable proportions ensued worldwide. Shock, fear and panic filled each heart and mind.

Once home, he retreats to his ancestral family seat of Stirling Towers - a gothic mansion that dominates the landscape near the remote Scottish Borders - for a Christmas of quiet recuperation. But on arrival he discovers that his mother, a fanatical spiritualist, has died and been hastily buried. Isolated from the insular local community, Hal finds himself at the mercy of his mother's two mysterious nurses, the harshest winter on record and, before long, the horrific visions; experiences he attributes to his heavy medication. Yet as the December weather deteriorates, so does Hal's certainty that his home is a place of safety. Who, or what, is trying to frighten him to death?

Anyone who laments the excesses of Christmas might consider the Puritans of colonial Massachusetts: they simply outlawed the holiday. The Puritans had their reasons, since Christmas was once an occasion for drunkenness and riot, when poor "wassailers extorted food and drink from the well-to-do. In this intriguing and innovative work of social history, Stephen Nissenbaum rediscovers Christmas's carnival origins and shows how it was transformed, during the nineteenth century, into a festival of domesticity and consumerism. Drawing on a wealth of period documents and illustrations, Nissenbaum charts the invention of our current Yuletide traditions, from St. Nicholas to the Christmas tree and, perhaps most radically, the practice of giving gifts to children. Bursting with detail, filled with subversive readings of such seasonal classics as "A Visit from St. Nicholas” and A Christmas Carol, The Battle for Christmas captures the glorious strangeness of the past even as it helps us better understand our present.

Nationally syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson, winner of the Ernie Pyle Award for human interest reporting, turns her sharp eye on herself in this frank, exhilarating, wise, poignant, and brave memoir. Her territory ranges from childhood memories of ritual pre-interstate trips in the family station wagon to visit foot-washing Baptist relatives to young-girl fixations on the Barbie dolls of the title, from the simultaneous exuberance and proto-feminist doubts of young marriage to the aches of loves lost through divorce and death. Her memorable journalism career, which began on her college newspaper and rural weeklies and moved on to prestigious big-city dailies, was punctuated by her distinctive writing voice and an unerring knack for revealing her much-loved South through uncommon stories about its common people. This is a big-hearted book that will leave no reader unaffected.

Vijendran Watson shares the lessons he learned as one of South Asia’s leading mobile communcations pioneers in this candid memoir. His journey starts in the United Kingdom and takes him to Africa, the Middle East, Australia, and Asia, allowing him to lead seven different companies in five different countries. He influenced the development and delivery of mobile communications that millions of people relied on. With the advent of mobile technology, a fisherman off the coast of Chilaw in Sri Lanka can communicate the details of his catch so salespeople may start selling before he reaches shore; a rikshawala driver in Bangladesh can arrange the pickup of his next passenger from miles away; and a construction worker in Mumbai can send cash to his family in remote Bihar, one of the poorest places in India, with the push of a button. Mobile communications transformed the lives of ordinary people, but it wouldn’t have happened if ordinary men and women hadn’t set out on a mission believing failure was impossible. That’s just one of many business and life lessons you’ll learn in Now I’m Talking.

New York Times Bestseller: The true story of twelve Jews who went underground in Nazi Berlin—and survived: “Consummately suspenseful” (Los Angeles Times). When Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, approximately one hundred sixty thousand Jews called Berlin home. By 1943 less than five thousand remained in the nation’s capital, the epicenter of Nazism, and by the end of the war, that number had dwindled to one thousand. All the others had died in air raids, starved to death, committed suicide, or been shipped off to the death camps. In this captivating and harrowing book, Leonard Gross details the real-life stories of a dozen Jewish men and women who spent the final twenty-seven months of World War II underground, hiding in plain sight, defying both the Gestapo and, even worse, Jewish “catchers” ready to report them to the Nazis in order to avoid the gas chambers themselves. A teenage orphan, a black-market jewel trader, a stylish young designer, and a progressive intellectual were among the few who managed to survive. Through their own resourcefulness, bravery, and at times, sheer luck, these Jews managed to evade the tragic fates of so many others. Gross has woven these true stories of perseverance into a heartbreaking, suspenseful, and moving account with the narrative force of a thriller. Compiled from extensive interviews, The Last Jews in Berlin reveals these individuals’ astounding determination, against all odds, to live each day knowing it could be their last.

Nathan Talbot participated in the 1936 Olympics, as captain of the Tyrian Tempest, representing the United Kingdom in the 6-Meter Class Yachting races. The competition was fierce and even though Talbot was a skilled sailor, he was disappointed with only winning the Bronze Medal, outmaneuvered by the German sailing master Werner Grossman. However, there were other darker issues plaguing the young Englishman once he returned from Nazi Germany. Something sordid and dangerous was simmering underneath all the pomp and circumstance of the new Fatherland. Less than four years later, Nathan's concerns were realized, as Germany plunged the world into yet another war. This time, Talbot took command of a Motor Torpedo Boat (MTB) and this time set sail for combat in the English Channel. Nathan was soon to discover that his old nemesis, Werner Grossman, had been given command of an entire E-boat flotilla operating in the same area. Then one night, while Talbot was sneaking about Occupied France, he literally ran into 19-year-old Elise Dub and it was love at first sight. While taking daring risks to keep the flames of romance burning, Talbot was also assigned to British Intelligence. It seemed that the former yachtsman's first-hand experience with French ports would come in handy for more covert reasons. There was just one problem. It also became obvious that Herr Grossman had also been captivated by Elise Dub's charms and planned to seduce her. Failing that, the German officer had every intention of forcing himself upon her. While the war at sea was often decided with lightning speed and brutal results, World War Two became incredibly personal for Nathan Talbot, who would stop at nothing to rescue his true love.
