Little Souls

release date: Apr 26, 2022
Little Souls
Sandra Dallas''s Little Souls is a gripping tale of sisterhood, loyalty, and secrets set in Denver amid America’s last deadly flu pandemic Colorado, 1918. World War I is raging overseas, but it’s the home front battling for survival. With the Spanish Flu rampant, Denver’s schools are converted into hospitals, churches and funeral homes are closed, and nightly horse-drawn wagons collect corpses left in the street. Sisters Helen and Lutie have moved to Denver from Ohio after their parents’ death. Helen, a nurse, and Lutie, a carefree advertising designer at Neusteter’s department store, share a small, neat house and each finds a local beau – for Helen a doctor, for Lutie a young student who soon enlists. They make a modest income from a rental apartment in the basement. When their tenant dies from the flu, the sisters are thrust into caring the woman’s small daughter, Dorothy. Soon after, Lutie comes home from work and discovers a dead man on their kitchen floor and Helen standing above the body, an icepick in hand. She has no doubt Helen killed the man—Dorothy’s father—in self-defense, but she knows that will be hard to prove. They decide to leave the body in the street, hoping to disguise it as a victim of the flu. Meanwhile Lutie also worries about her fiance “over there”. As it happens, his wealthy mother harbors a secret of her own and helps the sisters as the danger deepens, from the murder investigation and the flu. Set against the backdrop of an epidemic that feels all too familiar, Little Souls is a compelling tale of sisterhood and of the sacrifices people make to protect those they love most.

Who Can Take the Lord's Supper?

release date: Sep 10, 2021
Who Can Take the Lord's Supper?
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are likely more basic for the church than you think. When Jesus inaugurated the new covenant by his death on the cross, he established baptism as the new covenant sign of entry and the Lord’s Supper as the new covenant sign of participation. These signs identify believers with Christ and his people. They are integral to the existence, membership, and discipline of the local church. In answer to the question “Who can take the Lord’s Supper?” this book catalogues four major positions in the broad Baptist tradition. While proponents of various views have appealed to the necessity of circumcision for participation in Passover as evidence for their position, none have adequately worked out the covenantal relationships between circumcision and baptism or Passover and the Lord’s Supper. By contrast to Reformed pedobaptist covenantal theology and in distinction from Baptist covenantal theology and dispensational theologies, this book develops the relation of these covenantal signs from a progressive-covenantal perspective. It presents an unprecedented comparison of the continuities and discontinuities between the covenant signs across the storyline of Scripture to demonstrate a biblical-theological principle that the sign of entry should precede the sign of participation.

Life Without Lack
Learn the secret of living with contentment, peace, and security. Pause for a moment and ask yourself what it would be like to be completely without fear. If you did not fear death. If you did not fear life and what it might bring. If you did not fear any man, or woman, or any living creature. How would you go about your days differently? In Life Without Lack, Dallas Willard revolutionizes our understanding of Psalm 23 by taking this comfortably familiar passage and revealing its extraordinary promises: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. . . . I will fear no evil.” The psalmist claims to live without any need and without any fear. How is that possible? Written with Willard’s characteristic gentle wisdom, Life Without Lack helps readers experience God’s presence, his abundant generosity, and peace and freedom from worry. Based on a series of talks by the late author and edited by his friend Larry Burtoft and by his daughter, Rebecca Willard Heatley, Life Without Lack will forever change the way you understand and apply the most well-known passage in all Scripture.

Death, Grief, and Loss

Death, Grief, and Loss
WOODLAND WISDOM BOOKS were created to support parents, caregivers, educators, counsellors, and other helpers in the community to navigate difficult subjects with children. As a Children’s Counsellor, I am often asked, “How do I talk to a child about (insert difficult subject here)?” I wanted to provide resources that talk about the issue the child is going through in honest age-appropriate language that also guides the reader on how to help the child process their thoughts and feelings in a healthy way. Working in non-profit agencies, I recognize resources are not always available to fund enough staff to meet the need in the community. I wanted to create resources that will be helpful to children who are on waitlists to receive counselling services. My hope is that these books will also reach children who may never end up attending counselling. Woodland Wisdom Books start with a guide for the readers then the story begins. The characters of Woodland Woods tell tales of struggles, triumphs, and wisdom. The books end with exercises providing further ideas for healthy ways to deal with difficult issues.

Jeff Michael Walker, a successful lawyer in Dallas, Texas, finds the woman of his dreams. But she isn''t what he thinks she is, and her presence in his life spells almost immediate trouble. Her deadly glance, and the mystery surrounding her, pulls Walker deeper into a web of deception and conspiracy, while his personal life falls apart. The death of his law partner and the abduction of his good friend lead Jeff further into the dark story, until he finds himself on the edge of a potential worldwide disaster. Our story begins with Jeff, a retired national security officer and spy, who seems to have found his calling as a lawyer, political consultant, and playboy in Dallas. He and his partners, Bob Wright and Lil Turner, have formed Walker, Wright, and Turner, a law firm specializing in trade matters and governmental affairs. Each partner brings a specific piece of the puzzle, and the firm is soon known as one of the brightest stars on the horizon. Within a few short weeks, everything begins to go wrong for both the firm and its partners. Bob uncovers an ominous connection between Washington and an organization called World One. This organization, which calls itself a non-profit organization for American Youth, is making some suspicious moves, and calling in favors from some very powerful people. Bob uncovers a secret membership list of the mysterious organization, and gains access to some of their darkest plans. Before he knows it, Bob has asked one too many questions, and finds himself on the wrong side of an explosive device. His death, and the mysterious events surrounding it, put both Jeff and Lil on the run, fearing for both their lives and the safety of the people they love. Instead of going into hiding, Jeff faces the threats head on; he''s worked in the intelligence community, and he knows how to handle himself. Jeff has inside information and secret emails from Bob, and he and Lil are the only ones who can expose World One for what it is. Foreign interests, led by a man the U.S. knows as Al Chord, have woven a deep web of influence in local and national governments, law enforcement departments, and even military organizations. That organization - and those influences - are leading Al Chord directly to the top.
