Grace from the Rubble: Two Fathers' Road to Reconciliation after the Oklahoma City Bombing Audiobook

Grace from the Rubble: Two Fathers' Road to Reconciliation after the Oklahoma City Bombing

Author: Jeanne Bishop Narrator: Simona Chitescu-Weik Release Date: April 2020

'Readers should have tissues at hand before beginning Bishop's affecting story. This incredible and empathetic story is a testament to the powers of forgiveness, fellowship, and redemption.' --Publishers Weekly Starred Review The heart-stirring story of how the father of a young woman killed in the Oklahoma City bombing and the father of her killer, Timothy McVeigh, forged an unlikely friendship and found forgiveness. In what was to become the deadliest attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor, the Oklahoma City bombing was one in a long line of violent attacks that have left communities across the nation searching for healing and hope. With the soaring message of the power of love to conquer evil, Grace from the Rubble tells the intertwining stories of four captivating individuals: Julie Welch, a young professional full of promise, and Tim McVeigh, the troubled mind behind the horrific event; Bud Welch, a father whose only daughter (Julie) was murdered, and Bill McVeigh, the father of her killer. With searing details by first-hand witnesses, including the Governor of Oklahoma, masterful storyteller Jeanne Bishop describes the suspenseful scenes leading up to that fateful day and the dramatic events afterward as one father buried his daughter and the other saw his only son arrested and tried for mass murder. Vivid and haunting, this true story is rich with memories and beautiful descriptions of the nation's heartland, a place of grit and love for neighbors and family. Bishop tells how murder affected her own family and led her to meet Bud and, ultimately, how she learned to see humanity amidst inhuman violence. With compassion for all who have been touched by tragedy, this poignant narrative will touch your heart with the astonishing forgiveness that led to an extraordinary friendship.

Author: Bronwyn Lea Narrator: Simona Chitescu-Weik Release Date: April 2020

It Doesn't Have to Be This Weird When it comes to relationships between men and women, we have more questions than answers: - How do we keep relationships with the opposite sex healthy-and still hug each other after small group? - Is it possible for married men and women to be friends with people of the opposite sex? - What does it mean to be a woman if you're not a wife, or a man if you're not a husband? Jesus' pattern for church living was one of family-of brothers and sisters living in intimate, life-giving community with each other. With story, sensitivity, and hope, Beyond Awkward Side Hugs invites us to leave behind eroticized, fear-based patterns and move toward gendered, generous relationships between men and women of character as we love one another as Jesus did. "Beyond Awkward Side Hugs is a deep well of biblical wisdom, and Lea has written with nuance and clarity, humor and grace." -Jen Pollock Michel, author of Surprised by Paradox and Keeping Place "The church desperately needs a bigger vision for how men and women can flourish together in ministry and friendship, and Bronwyn Lea paints a vivid picture for how we'll get there." -Steve Wiens, author of Shining Like the Sun, Beginnings, and Whole
