Charles McIntyre owns everything and everyone in the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance. When three good, Christian sisters from his beloved South show up stranded, alone, and offering to open a “nice” hotel, he is intrigued enough to let them stay…especially since he sees feisty middle sister Naomi as a possible conquest. But Naomi, angry with God for widowing her, wants no part of Defiance or the saloon-owning, prostitute-keeping Mr. McIntyre. It would seem however, that God has gone to elaborate lengths to bring them together. The question is, “Why?” Does God really have a plan for each and every life?
A Lady in Defiance, loosely based on true events, is set in the majestic San Juan Mountains of Colorado. While a romance, it is also an “ensemble” piece that weaves together the relationships of the three sisters and the rowdy residents of Defiance. With a nod to

Dan Montgomery invites you to step through the first page of the book and walk with him to the top of a mountain peak. There you talk heart to heart while sharing your favorite drink.

From the older images of a sad, blue-eyed Jesus to the more recent, more violently graphic portrayals of his suffering, Hollywood has trained us to see the savior of the world as just another victim. To be sure, Jesus Christ endured terrible physical abuse and a barbaric death, but the night before it all happened, when he prayed in agony, alone in the garden, he was anticipating a much darker prospect, a terrible moment that according to Luke’s Gospel would cause the sun’s light to fail.
The Hush presents an alternative view, a much larger, more comprehensive look at the familiar story, combining a unique blend of speculation with the biblical record. Passion and humor and friendship are exchanged between Jesus and his disciples, while all around them danger and conflict and unseen posturing mounts. The week wears away, the hours tick down, the trials commence, and the abuse escalates. Evil is unleashed like never before.
And then comes the moment when the sun refuses to shine; as the Lord of the universe is nailed to a tree and lifted from the earth, the Hush descends.

Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, also known as Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, is without a doubt one of the world’s most popular Catholic saints. Her relics draw great crowds, and Catholics from the world over make pilgrimage en masse to places associated with her life.
Saint Thérèse’s vision of Catholicism was one of daily charity and prayer, where Jesus was close and approachable, not one of ritual and a distant God that required in-betweens. As a Doctor of the Church, Saint Thérèse’s writings have been the topic of discussion for many learned men and women throughout the century that has passed since her death. However, through her heartfelt style of writing and simple message it has also touched a great number of lay Christians, in ways no one could have foreseen during her lifetime.

A pastor reflects on his long captivity to compulsive addictions and meditates on some of the essential truths about God’s character that released him to recover. He offers encouragement for men emerging from patterns of addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors.
The book discusses the importance of a recovery process that:
- Replaces the “hard man” of the addictive imagination with the Father of Mercies,
- Sees oneself as a ‘whole disciple’ rather than a ‘recovering addict,’
- Pursues full-bodied Christian discipleship rather than “recovery religion,” and
- Focuses on ‘coming to the Light’ rather than ‘escaping from darkness.’
