YOUNG JAMES FROST just knows, deep in his bones, that he’s a writer. He writes far into early mornings, after his wearying hours of scrubbing toilets and sweeping floors. He loves writing that much.
But it’s not only the joy of words that keeps him grinding; it’s his desire to retire the janitor’s mop. He sees being published as the key to living an improved life. James has another deep-seated conviction: that he’s not good enough. He secretly longs to be accepted. However, the conventional others in his life seem all too willing to remind him that he’s wasting his time.
Then he meets and falls in love with Leigh, the one bright spot in his endless misery of self-doubt. A quiet but resolutely religious girl, she has to fight off disapproval of her own from overly critical parents, whose insults are countered by James’s often-voiced admiration of her. Likewise, Leigh’s faith in his talents begins to build his confidence, eventually allowing her to introduce him to a different way to help himself: relying on God.
Ultimately, James’s newfound faith is sorely tested to the point of doubt when his dream to be published seems to melt into a mirage, smothered by countless rejection slips from agents and publishers. His faith is also battered by having to fight highly emotional battles and suffer fear and loss. Just when James appears hopelessly sapped by devastating events, one last door opens, and he’s rocked by an epiphany.
UNCONVENTIONAL is designed to inspire readers to reach for their dreams. Buy this book. Read it. Share it with everyone you know. You – and they – will be glad you did!

Bookwi.se note: several of the Amazon reviews note that the only bad thing about this book is the cover.
The engaging story of Swann’s experiences growing up as a Southern Baptist homeschooled child from New Mexico earning her education at a highly accelerated pace. At the age of fifteen she became the youngest student ever to graduate from Brigham Young University in its 111 year history. Her nine brothers and sisters have also been homeschooled and have completed their educations at a similar pace. Swann recounts her family’s experiences with warmth, humor and affection in this poignant narrative which draws the family into the Swann household and allows them to meet Alexandra, her brothers and sisters, and her parents, John and Joyce Swann.
No Regrets is much more than a synopsis of the Swanns’ educational achievements, however; it is a story of love, friendship, perseverance, sacrifice and the bonds of family. This twentieth anniversary edition contains a new foreword by the author.

Introducing an exciting new series from Wyatt North Publishing. The Life and Prayers series combines professionally researched and written biographies of iconic Christian figures with an anthology of prayers.
The Life and Prayers of Saint Augustine of Hippo is the third book in this wonderful series. One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Augustine of Hippo is an essential book for any Christian.
The Church has numerous fathers who have influenced its dogma in substantial ways. Although none of them can be singled out as the most pivotal theologian of Church history, it can certainly be said that Saint Augustine of Hippo has long been a central figure to Christian thought, informing both on the nature of God and the nature of Christian morality.
He has been quoted throughout the ages by important Christian writers, such as Saint Thomas Aquinas, and has been listed as a strong influence by Pope Benedict XVI. Through his central place in the history of Christianity, some historians have appointed Saint Augustine particularly great importance in European and World history. They have called him the last man of the Classical Age, and the first medieval man.
All books in The Life and Prayers series come complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section.
Also from the same series: The Life and Writings of St John of the Cross

Imagine the possibilities if we could talk about God without sounding religious and find that people are actually interested in what we have to say!

I have not read any of these books, so they may not be any good. Some of the free Christian Kindle books from previous Free Book posts are still available for free. If you want to see all free books as they come out you should follow Books on the Knob on their RSS or Twitter Feed. Or Ireaderreview or the many free book threads on Amazon’s Message Boards.
As always please check to make sure the books are still free before you “buy” them, especially from Amazon. Prices can change quickly. This may be a one day offer. Pick it up quick. If you do buy a book and realize later you have been charged for it, here is a guide on how to return a kindle book.
