Global Church Planting
With nearly fifty years combined global church-planting experience, Craig Ott and Gene Wilson are well qualified to write a comprehensive, up-to-date guide for cross-cultural church planting. Combining substantive biblical principles and missiological understanding with practical insights, this book walks readers through the various models and development phases of church planting. Advocating methods that lead to church multiplication, the authors emphasize the role of the missionary church planter. They offer helpful reflection on current trends and provide best practices gathered from research and empirical findings around the globe. The book takes up a number of special issues not addressed in most church planting books, such as use of short-term teams, partnerships, and wise use of resources. Full of case studies and real examples from around the world, this practical text will benefit students, church planters, missionaries, and missional church readers.

100 Mustang Stars
In today's world, sports is simply a bigger part than ever before. You can turn on ESPN and listen to and see sports replays and "news" all day long. In most cities there are several sports talk shows that cover sports every minute that they are on the air, and of course now there is social media. This book is an insight to SMU's best athletes, not just football and basketball, but all sports including swimming, golf, tennis, women's sports and even a mention of rowing, equestrian, and volleyball. The author and a committee of knowledgable sports people selected the 100 and it is a solid list. The book is a must read for sports fans or anyone associated with Southern Methodist University. You'll recognize some of the greats: Doak Walker, Lamar Hunt, Jim Krebs, Don Meredith, Kyle Rote, Glynn Gregory, Lance Mcilhenny, Martina Moravcova, Eric Dickerson, Steve Lundquist, Florence Ezeh, Stewart Payne, Michael Carter, and many more. Some copy about players as well as some history of SMU was taken from old newspaper files and the Internet. The players and personalities selected for this book were compiled by a committee of veteran sports writers and others who have close ties to the school. The order in which they appear has no significance on how he or she performed during their time at Southern Methodist University.

Coffee with Mr. Bear
Dog lovers have dreamed about what their dogs would say if their dogs could only talk. Author Gene Wilson lives that dream with his wife Sherri's two black Labs, Mr. Bear and Ms. Hope. In "Coffee With Mr. Bear" he shares the insights of Mr. Bear into life, sports, people and style all in one book. It's great that Gene loves to talk. But he also loves to listen. And that's how he came to be the chronicler of Mr. Bear's and Ms. Hope's words and their world. Mr. Bear appreciates like Gene, style in people and in dress. Mr. Bear is reported to have said, on first meeting Gene, "Now that's a man with whom I can share my insights and thoughts." Mr. B talks about sports, like which team would have been the best fit for former Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo. Gene focuses when Mr. B comments on Gene's attire for an evening out with the divine Sherri. Gene has also been known to get Mr. B's approval for his ensemble for the morning stroll through Highland Park. "We enjoy the walk, it helps to keep us in good shape," says Ms. Hope, who walks in the front with Gene and Mr. Wonderful covers the back with Sherri. Boxing champion George Foreman once told Channel 8's Dale Hansen in an interview: "You can tell a lot about a man by the way he treats his dog." Well said. Gene gives the reader a very enjoyable "read" from day one. The imagination part is creative and fun to read. And to make the book more interesting, the author tells a number of stories of friend's dogs. The photos of the dogs are cute as they can be. Mr. Bear added that he is not sure of his schedule, but he will try to be present to autograph his share of the books. "If there is a chance that he can get his picture in the paper, he'll be there," grins Ms. Hope. The boy is one of a kind, no doubt.

The Cauble Connection
Cauble was a larger-than-life player on the Texas scene a few decades ago. His Cutter Bill Western Wear chain was known far and wide. He traveled in a circle of celebrities that include Bob Hope, John Wayne, and Ronald Reagan, and his Cauble Enterprises was worth $100 million or more. He was known, too, as an anti-drug crusader. He befriended federal and state narcotics agents, supplied them with "buy" money for their drug stings, and loaned them his private jet. He bought radio time and recorded his own anti-drug commercials. That's why the news that he had been charged as a major drug trafficker hit with such stunning force. Why would a man who was already wealthy risk it all for a few more million in ill-gotten gains? That question may never be answered. But federal agents believed that Cauble financed a group known as the Cow- boy Mafia and helped smuggle $70 million worth of marijuana over a three-year period. They charged him with racketeering under the RICO statute and made it stick. This is an unauthorized biography of Rex Carmack Cauble. This book is not an attempt to mythologize Cauble. It is, instead, an effort to tell the story the way it really was. I relied on a wide range of sources and, of course, a variety of opinions are expressed that I don't necessarily agree with. Almost everyone who has lived in Texas for any length of time has some sort of story about the well-known Cowboy Cauble. Suffice it to say, it is often difficult to tell the difference between fact and fiction when the character is as colorful and intriguing as Mr. Cauble was.

This is a true story of an ambitious, young man who has been in the Sofia Central Penitentiary for almost 11 years--for a crime that he denies doing. He was sent to this hell hole for allegedly stealing money from his own company. The Interpol and Bulgarian law officials say he stashed the money in Canadian banks or hid it off shore. But they have not found a nickel. In the meantime, Michael Kapoustin remains in the SCP, buried deep in the bowels of this 100-year-old outdated prison.
