Tony Tenkiller is a naïve amateur boxing champion from a small Oklahoma town who has dreamed of winning a world title ever since he was a child. After a training run, Tony stops in a public restroom to rinse the sweat from his face. A few minutes later, he finds himself in the backseat of a police car where he begins to fear the implication this one incident will have on his life and boxing career.

Disaster is averted—for the moment—when Tony’s uncle rescues him from his predicament. With help from his new manager, ex-newspaper sports editor Lamar Bosworth, Tony mistakenly believes he has overcome his recent problem. But when he turns professional, a persistent rumor threatens to damage his career as he works his way toward a million-dollar world title bout. As he attempts to determine who has his back in his inner-circle and who does not, tragedy strikes twice, leaving Tony more vulnerable than ever.

In this action-packed story of hype, greed, and manipulation, a young professional boxer struggles to keep his dream alive as life throws him punches he never sees coming.

The words have dried up,
brittle as pine straw, scorched by summer sun,
fragile as fleeting ashes of burning leaves.
They bud, but this drought leaves them
hanging on vines like dried string beans.
They rattle in the wind, empty and noisy,
dry and hard from lack of inspiration,
dried seeds in summer gourds of poetry.

Mary Elizabeth Lee relies on her experiences traveling country roads in North and South Louisiana and teaching students for many years to influence her first collection of poetry that reflects on people, nature, and the world around her.

From a Sunday drive where pines whisper to the blue horizon to a majestic oak that has seen its time to a light rain that falls around Catfish Town, Lee shares a variety of relatable poems that shine a light on the wildlife and landscape she observed during her travels and also from her perch on her back porch. With a strong, distinctive voice, Lee also ponders life, death, and everything in between while exploring the power of love, friendship, heartbreak, and change.

Beveled Edges and Mitered Corners is an insightful collection of poetry that mirrors one woman’s walk through life as she encourages others to embrace all that life has to offer.

Something unusual catches Kinley Rankin’s eye as she searches the local paper for work:

Farm widower, early fifties, looking for an arranged marriage contract with willing partner.

The gentleman in question, Nels Swenson has a lot on his mind these days. After the mysterious death of his first wife, Mary, his wounded, lonely heart is still raw. The effort to keep his farm consumes his every waking minute, leaving little energy for everyday chores and definitely no time for traditional courting.

Kinley is also in desperate straits. Now that that her job has moved out of state, she’s out of work and out of luck. Anxious about her future, she decides to respond to the ad. After a brief relationship, she accepts his proposal, which is more of a business transaction than an affair of the heart.

As they work together to salvage his once-successful farm, a mutual admiration develops. Inspired by his many admirable qualities, Kinley is no longer satisfied to have just his name—she wants his heart too.

Their uncommon union is challenged by Kinley’s unexpected pregnancy and her adult children who come to live with them. The thorn in Nels’ flesh is his brother-in-law, Homer Speers, whose family encamps on Swenson property. Tensions build to a breaking point when death strikes Swenson Farm a second time. All eyes are on Nels when Homer is found dead, and he must prove his innocence—again. As he tries to protect the women of Swenson Farm, his life begins to unravel around him.

ListenTalk: Is Conversation an Act of God? explores the profound mysteries of everyday conversations, uncovering how the mundane and the sublime commingle in the words people exchange in working and playing alongside one another. How people choose to express themselves—to frame their deepest longings and thoughts—either expands or shrinks the deep realities of mind, body, and human community.
Kirk Livingston, drawing upon education in philosophy and theology and experience in the commercial world of copywriting, investigates how words exercise power to make things happen in this world and how those emerging conversations connect people to one another and bind them to God.
As the title hints, ListenTalk ends chapters with questions crafted to encourage conversation among people who share the journey of reading this work together. Frequent and effective section headings provide ample markers along the way, so that readers may keep themselves oriented to the book’s presentation. To support deeper reflection, ListenTalk also suggests further reading and offers pertinent documentation and a topical index.
If you find yourself awash in conversation—talk—and wonder if more may be going on than simply filling silence with sound, then this book promises to address how God uses ordinary conversations. They can become tools to achieve reunion both among people who too often simply pass by one another in the midst of busy days and between people and the God who made them to enter into the divine conversation.

By Laura; John Moulder

Good News for Young Athletes: Winning Strategies for Sports and Life taps the deep wisdom and long experience of the Christian scriptures, giving to youth and parents practical tips for following God’s coaching. Laura and John Moulder, a husband-and-wife team of writers who founded Hidden Rock Sports, bring the insights from years devoted to their children’s involvement in youth sports to this playbook for parents.
Three sections—”Tap the Rock”, “Embrace the Rock”, and “Treasure the Rock”—cover topics grounded in the challenges and joys one finds on life’s playing field. Chapters on subjects like prayer, godliness, and hard work show how to tap the resources of Christ, the Rock. Turning to hurdles like anxiety and disappointment, the middle section demonstrates how to embrace the Rock.
Finally, treatments of contentment and joy model for young Christians how to treasure that rock that is Christ. The chapters make ample use of illustrations, cartoons, scripture passages, and tips for starting conversations between youth and parents.
If you have children—or if you work with children—involved in the competitive and sometimes callous world of youth sports, then Good News for Young Athletes will fit well into your kit of guiding resources. Packed with the wisdom of the Christian faith and the field-tested approaches of parents who work with youth in sports, this guidebook promises to help both generations maximize their performance in sports and life and become enlightened competitors both on and off the field.

When John Jewitt boarded a ship in England in 1802 for what was supposed to be an eighteen-month voyage around the world, he was ready for adventure.

The seventeen-year-old had undoubtedly been enthralled by stories about China, which promised enchanting islands, exotic ports-of-call, and thrills beyond the imagination

His dreams were dashed when the Nootka Indians of Vancouver Island, who had occupied the place for four thousand years, captured him and held him captive. Somehow, he managed to write about his experience, providing historians and anthropologists with a rare account of Native American culture before it collapsed from contact with whites.

Jewitt saw the Nootka as "savages, degraded for their morals and customs." They were "uncivilized" for worshipping several gods and "subhuman" for enjoying rotten salmon. His writings help explain why whites were so quick to enslave Africans and push Native Americans aside.

Take a glimpse into the past when people were considered inferior because they were different, and learn important lessons about why we must be tolerant and understanding by being Among the Nootka.
