Noble Cause is the recipient of the coveted John Esten Cooke Award for Southern Fiction and captured the title for Regional Fiction in the 2011 Next Generation Indie Award contest. It was also a Bronze winner in Foreword Magazine’s BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD contest in the Romance category, and was a Finalist in the USA “Best Books 2011 Awards for Historical Fiction.
Often compared to Gone with the Wind, Midwest Book Review called Noble Cause “a riveting piece of historical fiction.”
This is the tale of Colonel Alexander Hunter, a dauntless and daring Confederate cavalry officer, who, with his band of intrepid outcasts, becomes a legend in the rolling hills of northern Virginia. Inspired by love of country and guided by a sense of duty and honor, Hunter must make a desperate choice when he discovers the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect is the Union spy he vowed to his men he would destroy.
Readers will discover the fine line between friends and enemies when the paths of these two tenacious foes cross by the fates of war and their destinies become entwined forever.
Author Jessica James uniquely blends elements of romantic and historical fiction in this deeply personal and poignant tale that, according to one reviewer, “transcends the pages to settle in the very marrow of the reader’s bones.” Winner of numerous national awards, James has received critical acclaim for this page-turning story of courage, honor, and enduring love.
Destined for an honored place among the classics of the American Civil War, Noble Cause is a book to read, and keep, and remember forever.

What if everything you’ve been taught about Hell was wrong?
Many Christians think that Jesus is the only way to Heaven and those who don’t believe in Him will spend eternity in a literal and burning Hell. Is this what the Bible teaches? Will the majority of mankind spend eternity in torment because they rejected God in this life?
“What the Hell” will show you what the Scriptures clearly teach about this subject and where this idea of Hell came from. It’s not about winning or losing or even changing the Christian faith. It’s about the honest pursuit of truth.

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. We are our biggest critic. We doubt ourselves more than anyone else. Why is that? Why do we so often sabotage the success we long for? The answer, in a word, is shame.
Healing the Hurts of Your Past helps you discover the source of nagging hurts, habits and hang-ups in your life and connects the dots to your self-defeating behavior. It then offers a solid Christ-centered approach to find the freedom you’ve always wanted. This book is not a “feel-good” story but a “roll up your sleeves” look at the pain of shame and what to do about it. Questions are offered along the way to help you process the material at a deeper level.
Healing the Hurts of Your Past is a great first step before you seek out counseling or a companion once you start. It’s refreshingly “real” without the typical psychological or religious jargon. A special appendix gives you forty scripture verses that directly address the pain of shame to help you retrain your mind in regard to how you view yourself.

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.

Have you ever wondered, “Am I really saved?” Maybe you remember the time you said a prayer and asked Jesus into your heart, but since then you have questioned whether you really got saved at all. Or could it be that you know you got saved, but you fear that you could never live a life good enough to hold onto that gift.
Everyone at some point in time wonders what will become of them after they die. This uncertainty can especially plague and haunt someone who, though being a child of God, wonders if there is hope for their future. To the person who struggles with the security of their salvation, the prospect of any assurance or peace seems futile without clear answers from Scripture.
Others have taken obscure verses out of the Bible to cast a thick and seemingly impenetrable shadow upon the doctrine of eternal security. God’s shining light will cut through the darkness as you are given clear guidelines for understanding some of the more difficult passages in the Bible, and the looming shadow of doubt will quickly vanish as you read the fifteen impossibilities that would have to take place to ever undo the miracles that God executed at the moment of salvation.
Ecclesiastes 3:14, “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.”

Very Topical and even Metafictional!
This fictional book is great for discussions of politics, religion, and life. You know – those things you aren’t supposed to talk to anybody about to keep the peace?
Do we all exist in Heaven before becoming human? Is our life on Earth a test to see if we then get to spend Eternity with God? Does evil exist? Do evil spirits exist? Is there anything to the December 21, 2012 Mayan prophecy or other political, environmental, or astronomical events suggesting we may be living in the END TIMES? What does it mean to be Christian in the year 2012 and beyond? Is God even in control? These questions and many more are answered in the pages of Broken Pottery.
Janice Thresher is the typical middle class suburban teen of the 1980′s. Living near Pittsburgh, PA, she follows her high school sweetheart off to Penn State where he proceeds to dump her. She copes with her loss by partying heavily until God brings a new love into her life. In a cruel twist of fate, this love was not meant to last either.
On the other side of the country in Southern California, Sophie Ulsrey, a girl several years younger than Janice, spends her time trying to hide ugly scars sustained after a terrible auto accident in which she lost her father. The accident, and her mother’s reaction to it, drives Sophie to achieve wealth and fame as she becomes an adult.
As adults, the lives of Janice and Sophie divinely intersect in time to warn fellow Americans of a government cover-up to hide important factual information with apocalyptic national security implications. Just as it was in 1938 when an American radio audience believed Orson Welles’ “War of the Worlds” broadcast to be truth instead of fiction, many readers of Broken Pottery will be tempted to check their cell phones and digital libraries just to make sure they, too, are reading only a book of fiction.
Broken Pottery takes you on a suspenseful adventure through the years 1965-2020, taking on the real difficulties we all have in life, dramatizes them, and provides a considered, thoughtful view of how we tackle them. 21 Study questions for self-reflection or group study are included.

Nearly forty years ago, amid the rapid dissolution of the American moral fabric after Roe v. Wade, an old truth started gaining new life in America.
It was the truth that had once made America great, but one which she had forgotten—that the Bible is not a collection of disconnected moralisms for private application, but rather a comprehensive guide for all of life, a blueprint for the private and public conduct of all individuals and nations.
In 1982, the three-volume God and Government series fanned the flames of this national worldview awakening, establishing that the character of a nation and its people depends on their relationship with God as revealed in Holy Scripture.
Relying on clear historical and biblical research, author Gary DeMar demonstrated how America had been great and how she could be great again.
The series quickly became a staple in the Christian curriculum. For decades, in the hands of countless teachers, parents, and students, the books educated minds young and old in the Christian history of America, the origin and foundation of government, the biblical principles of authority, and the basis and necessity of Christian political activism.
But the work of reviving America is far from finished, and Americans need to hear—now more than ever—the biblical and historical truths explained in God and Government.
Now thirty years later, American Vision has thoroughly renovated, revised, and updated Gary DeMar’s monumental work into this beautiful one-volume hardback.
With a fresh new look, more images, an extensive subject and scripture index, and an updated bibliography, God and Government is ready to prepare a whole new generation to take on the political and religious battles confronting Christians today.
May it be used in a new awakening of Christians in America—not just to inform minds, but to stimulate action and secure a better tomorrow for our posterity.

America Was Great Once… She Can Be Great Again
In America’s Resurrection: Seeking God’s Blessing on Our Nation, author Bruce Moore details the original founding vision for America, our rise to greatness, and our present downward cycle. He shows how the Christian values our nation was founded upon, which served as the source of strength and success for our government, culture and society, are now at risk in America today, and with them, so much more.
By comparing America at its founding with its current state, Moore skillfully explores:
• The dilution and polarization of Christian values in our society, the resultant disunity of our citizenry, and the erosion of our status as the world’s leading nation.
• The alarming increase in the size and role of our nation’s government, its increasing reach into the personal lives of its citizens, as well as how our contentious political atmosphere has inflamed this problem.
• The importance of the preservation of the U.S. Constitution as originally interpreted and intended by the founders of our great nation, in the face of divergent reinterpretation that social pressures of our day impose.
Though he presents a sometimes grim assessment of America’s current state and direction, Moore presents a hopeful picture of the bright future of our nation in America’s Resurrection: Seeking God’s Blessing on Our Nation. If you believe in America and want to see her restored to greatness, you will find in these pages a wealth of invaluable information, written from a solidly Bible-based, Christian worldview.
