A #1 NEW RELEASE ON AMAZON! El McMeen hails from rural Pennsylvania. His full name is “Elmer Ellsworth McMeen, III.” That’s a good name for a kid, El says, if you want him to learn how to fight in elementary school. El didn’t start so well. He wasn’t on the gravy train, more like in front of it, waiting to get run over. He nearly died at birth. He has cerebral palsy. He had a broken home. He was, in his own words, a “miscreant.” But his story is one of redemption. El became a “Wall Street lawyer,” an internationally acclaimed acoustic guitarist, and a Christian minister. He and his wife Sheila have four married children and three grandchildren. “The Lord became my GPS,” El says, “but in my case He still has to do a lot of ‘recalculating.’” Join El on his journey. He is a gifted storyteller. The road winds through physical disability, youthful misdeeds, family tragedy, Harvard University, Penn Law School, music, and the intricacies of law practice, with a lot of laughs along the way. From small-town life to New York City, and back. "Growing Up in God’s Country" is unabashedly evangelistic. It shows the amazing ways in which God moves in everyday lives. God has a sense of humor, too. If He didn’t, El says, where did ours come from?

Winner of the 2014 Christianity Today Book of the Year First Place Winner of the Religion Newswriters Association's Non-fiction Religion Book of the Year The Jesus People movement was a unique combination of the hippie counterculture and evangelical Christianity. It first appeared in the famed "Summer of Love" of 1967, in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district, and spread like wildfire in Southern California and beyond, to cities like Seattle, Atlanta, and Milwaukee. In 1971 the growing movement found its way into the national media spotlight and gained momentum, attracting a huge new following among evangelical church youth, who enthusiastically adopted the Jesus People persona as their own. Within a few years, however, the movement disappeared and was largely forgotten by everyone but those who had filled its ranks. God's Forever Family argues that the Jesus People movement was one of the most important American religious movements of the second half of the 20th-century. Not only do such new and burgeoning evangelical groups as Calvary Chapel and the Vineyard trace back to the Jesus People, but the movement paved the way for the huge Contemporary Christian Music industry and the rise of "Praise Music" in the nation's churches. More significantly, it revolutionized evangelicals' relationship with youth and popular culture. Larry Eskridge makes the case that the Jesus People movement not only helped create a resurgent evangelicalism but must be considered one of the formative powers that shaped American youth in the late 1960s and 1970s.

Are you or someone you know being held captive by self-condemnation or guilt? Maybe you once served in a ministry but fell through mistake or sin, feeling there is no way back to God. When we fall, the world is quick to condemn us. Family members, friends, associates, and the self-righteous are quick to judge us guilty without recourse. While the world's condemnation is hurtful, it pales to the condemnation and guilt we put on ourselves. This condemnation comes from the devil, and he uses it to stifle any attempt to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off. Whenever the slimmest glimmer of hope appears, he quickly reminds us of what we have done. He will even use portions of Scripture to snuff out the faintest of hope's light. This keeps us broken and wondering what is the use of trying to reach out to God. Between these book covers resides a testimony to the good, the bad, and the ugly of the author's life. The accounts are raw and unvarnished. It is also a testimony of the immeasurable depth of God's love, God's grace, and God's mercy. The author shares how God took him into the wilderness to remake and repurpose him. God used an old ice tea glass to drive home the lesson The author prays sharing his story will set another captive free from the condemnation and guilt that keeps us from serving and honoring God. It doesn't matter who you are or what you have done, no one is outside the grasp of God's love, grace, and mercy. He uses our mistakes to build us up for his glory. He never stops caring.

Jonathan Edwards is the greatest theologian of colonial America as well as its first important philosopher. As a theologian, he represents without any concession Calvinistic Orthodoxy, re-thought and re-lived through the experience of the Great Awakening. The large majority of his writings are of a theological character, yet this theology is articulated and expressed through a systematic philosophical reflection. Edwardsian thought covers three major areas: First, being, grace, and glory; then, the doctrine of the will extending to the study of the original sin and evil; finally, an entirely original theory of knowledge synthesizing spirituality, aesthetics, and epistemology. The present book, the first edition of which appeared in French almost thirty years ago, is a uniquely comprehensive study of the work of Jonathan Edwards. It discusses all the aspects of his thought over against the background of classical Protestant theology and of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Western philosophy. Our time witnesses a significant renewal of interest in Jonathan Edwards. Professor Veto's book should prove to be a major contribution to assist and to guide the readers of "America's Theologian."

“An engaging, humorous, revealing, and refreshingly human look at the bizarre, life-threatening, and delightfully humdrum exploits of everyone from sports heroes to sex workers.” -- Douglas Rushkoff, author of Coercion, Ecstasy Club, and Media Virus This wide-ranging survey of the American economy at the turn of the millennium is stunning, surprising, and always entertaining. It gives us an unflinching view of the fabric of this country from the point of view of the people who keep it all moving. The more than 120 roughly textured monologues that make up Gig beautifully capture the voices of our fast-paced and diverse economy. The selections demonstrate how much our world has changed--and stayed the same--in the three decades prior to the turn of the millennium. If you think things have speeded up, become more complicated and more technological, you're right. But people's attitudes about their jobs, their hopes and goals and disappointments, endure. Gig's soul isn't sociological--it's emotional. The wholehearted diligence that people bring to their work is deeply, inexplicably moving. People speak in these pages of the constant and complex stresses nearly all of them confront on the job, but, nearly universally, they throw themselves without reservation into coping with them. Instead of resisting work, we seem to adapt to it. Some of us love our jobs, some of us don't, but almost all of us are not quite sure what we would do without one. With all the hallmarks of another classic on this subject, Gig is a fabulous read, filled with indelible voices from coast to coast. After hearing them, you'll never again feel quite the same about how we work.

This is a rock n roll fiction that spans 23 years and two generations of aspiring young musicians. Its journey begins in Reanton in 1989, a time and place where long haired music culture set the ground rules for the fickle teenage social scene. A young outsider with very definite ideas that the established style of music has become inbred strove to do something new. Mallory Kendall ran against the grain but was visionary and a few people saw it at the time, but the little things she said and did had a knock on effect that left the world changed. Those who stood with her and those who opposed her saw her become a god of rock in an historic sense and their lives were changed profoundly. As the years rolled on they came to terms with the mark she made and gained something they never expected, the respect of a new generation of young budding rock n roll dreamers with their own social scene. Old feuds run bitter and never get forgiven or forgotten, and where there seemed to be high times and the youthful spark of music super heros, along comes the spider. Lauda is a super villain heart and soul, and wherever he walks everything is sucked of life. His understudy Doc Nicks is set to become even worse except, wherever he walks things seem to heal up and turn out better. Doc needed to leave Lauda to take the whole world for himself, but when he did he didn't need the world anymore.
