Multnomah/WaterBrook Publishers has a monthly sale on ebooks. Usually there are 4 to 6 books with a mix of non-fiction and fiction books. The sale price is always $0.99 and is available at Amazon, Sony, Barnes and Noble and Kobo ebook stores. You can subscribe to an email to find out the monthly sales, but also usually can see at least the next month’s sale books and sometime 2 or 3 months of future sales.
There are some kooky books on sale this month (so I didn’t link to two on end time prophecy), but also several that are very well reviewed. I am linking to the Amazon books, but you can click here to get to the other stores.
Dinner With a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory – The mysterious envelope arrives on Nick Cominsky’s desk amid a stack of credit card applications and business-related junk mail. Although his seventy-hour workweek has already eaten into his limited family time, Nick can’t pass up the opportunity to see what kind of plot his colleagues have hatched. The normally confident, cynical Nick soon finds himself thrown off-balance, drawn into an intriguing conversation with a baffling man who appears to be more than comfortable discussing everything from world religions to the existence of heaven and hell. And this man who calls himself Jesus also seems to know a disturbing amount about Nick’s personal life.
How Would Jesus Vote: A Christian Perspective on the Issues by Jerry Newcombe and James Kennedy – The 2008 election is shaping up to be one of the most important political contests in American history. In fact, Dr. D. James Kennedy believes it will be a watershed moment that could impact our very survival as a nation under God. Values voters–people whose political views and votes are based on their faith in God–are being targeted as never before. As we move forward in the campaign season, the significant players will debate terrorism, radical Islam, nuclear threats, global warming, social issues, gay marriage, immigration, education, health care, and many other essential issues that can create sharp ideological divisions.
Into this overwhelmingly complex political situation, Dr. Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe bring a clear, compelling, and nonpartisan exploration of what God’s Word has to say on these critical matters. How Would Jesus Vote? isn’t intended to tell you which candidates to support; rather it offers you a Christ-centered understanding of the world to help you draw your own political conclusions.
The Veritas Conflict by Shaunti Feldhahn – Claire Rivers races to the mailbox to receive a letter of acceptance to Harvard University while a heavenly battle rages. In this fast-paced, suspenseful novel, the ageless war for the hearts and minds of students on our college campuses is revealed. Conflict between unseen evil and angelic forces reflects their battle for victorious living amidst confused messages. When Claire and her roommate encounter attacks on their faith, a deeper mystery — involving Harvard’s Christian heritage, the pull of money, and a dark plan for societal corruption — unfolds around them. Will they succumb to temptation and destruction? What has become of Harvard’s founding motto: Veritas, Christo et Ecclesiae — “Truth for Christ and the Church”? Can Claire — with other praying students and their parents — counteract the forces of humanism and relativism … and what will it cost them to do so?
Thirsty: a Novel by Tracey Bateman – “Hello, I’m Nina Parker…and I’m an alcoholic.”
For Nina, it’s not the weighty admission but the first steps toward recovery that prove most difficult. She must face her ex-husband, Hunt, with little hope of making amends, and try to rebuild a relationship with her angry teenage daughter, Meagan. Hardest of all, she is forced to return to Abbey Hills, Missouri, the hometown she abruptly abandoned nearly two decades earlier–and her unexpected arrival in the sleepy Ozark town catches the attention of someone–or something–igniting a two-hundred-fifty-year-old desire that rages like a wildfire. Unaware of the darkness stalking her, Nina is confronted with a series of events that threaten to unhinge her sobriety. Her daughter wants to spend time with the parents Nina left behind. A terrifying event that has haunted Nina for almost twenty years begins to surface. And an alluring neighbor initiates an unusual friendship with Nina, but is Markus truly a kindred spirit or a man guarding dangerous secrets? As everything she loves hangs in the balance, will Nina’s feeble grasp on her demons be broken, leaving her powerless against the thirst? The battle between redemption and obsession unfold to its startling, unforgettable end.
