Blaze of Light: The Inspiring True Story of Green Beret Medic Gary Beikirch, Medal of Honor Recipien

Author: Marcus Brotherton Narrator: Ray Porter Release Date: March 2020

For fans of Unbroken and Hacksaw Ridge comes the powerful true story of a Medal of Honor recipient who faced more than his fair share of battles-and overcame them through perseverance and faith.   "What Gary Beikirch did to receive his medal is unforgettable-and the story of what he overcame afterward is as big and moving as they come."-Gary Sinise   After dawn the siege began. It was April 1, 1970, and Army Green Beret medic Gary Beikirch knew the odds were stacked against their survival. Some 10,000 enemy soldiers sought to obliterate the twelve American Special Forces troops and 400 indigenous fighters who stood fast to defend 2,300 women and children inside the village of Dak Seang. For his valor and selflessness during the ruthless siege, Beikirch would be awarded a Medal of Honor, the nation's highest and most prestigious military decoration.   But Gary returned home wounded in body, mind, and soul. To find himself again, Gary retreated to a cave in the mountains of New England, where a redemptive encounter with God allowed Gary to find peace.    New York Times best-selling author Marcus Brotherton chronicles the incredible true story of a person who changed from lost to found. Gripping and unforgettable, and written with a rich and vivid narrative voice, Blaze of Light will inspire you to answer hurt with ingenuity, to reach for faith, and to find clarity and peace within any season of storm.

Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II Audiobook

Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II

Author: George Weigel Narrator: Sam Tsoutsouvas Release Date: March 2020

“Fascinating...sheds light on the history of the twentieth century for everyone.”—New York Times Book Review Now, with an updated preface, the latest edition of the definitive biography of Pope John Paul II that explores how influential he was on the world stage and in some of the most historic events of the twentieth century that can still be felt today. Witness to Hope is the authoritative biography of one of the singular figures—some might argue the singular figure—of our time. With unprecedented cooperation from John Paul II and the people who knew and worked with him throughout his life, George Weigel offers a groundbreaking portrait of the Pope as a man, a thinker, and a leader whose religious convictions defined a new approach to world politics—and changed the course of history. As even his critics concede, John Paul II occupied a unique place on the world stage and put down intellectual markers that no one could ignore or avoid as humanity entered a new millennium fraught with possibility and danger. The Pope was a man of prodigious energy who played a crucial, yet insufficiently explored, role in some of the most momentous events of our time, including the collapse of European communism, the quest for peace in the Middle East, and the democratic transformation of Latin America. With an updated preface, this edition of Witness to Hope explains how this “man from a far country” did all of that, and much more—and what both his accomplishments and the unfinished business of his pontificate mean for the future of the Church and the world.

Laughing at the Days to Come: Facing Present Trials and Future Uncertainties with Gospel Hope Audiobook

Laughing at the Days to Come: Facing Present Trials and Future Uncertainties with Gospel Hope

Author: Tessa Thompson Narrator: Susan Hanfield Release Date: March 2020

In Laughing at the Days to Come, Tessa Thompson shares a poignant story of physical suffering and her journey to not only understand God's hand at work in it, but to face the future with laughter. This book is gospel centered and hope-filled. Chapter after chapter, the author directs our focus to Christ and his work for us. We all face suffering in this fallen world, but we are not without hope. In Laughing at the Days to Come, listeners are equipped to face their own stories of suffering with joy because of our present and future hope in Christ. Tessa Thompson was fifteen years old when she was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease that took away her hearing and would eventually cause chronic pain and other health complications. Faced with a future of uncertainty, she encountered Proverbs: 31:25: 'Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.' The godly woman of Proverbs 31 had something Tessa lacked-a vision for life that allowed her to laugh at the future. In this warmly personal account, Tessa insightfully considers what she calls the Christian's 'peculiar perspective on suffering' and shows you how the hope of God's Word will enable you to laugh at the days to come even in the midst of tears and suffering.

Journey: A Novel Audiobook

Journey: A Novel

Author: Andrew Zimmerman Narrator: Charlie Thurston Release Date: March 2020

Paul is a top business executive hoping to be the next CEO of Ascendant-a New York-based tech giant. He neglects everything-his family and himself-in the race to the top. His fast-paced life is interrupted when he travels to Glastonbury, England, to visit friends in a village rich in history and mysticism. Glastonbury represents a complete counterpoint to Paul's elite corporate day job. It compares to an amusement park, with shops and venues catering to spiritual seekers ranging from would-be witches, goddesses and druids, and burned-out hippies. Like many seekers before him, he is attracted to the energy of a nearby hill-Tor-said to be the mythical Isle of Avalon. Paul meets a beautiful soul reader, Christine, who reads his soul and plants the seeds that turn his life upside down. When he returns to New York, his wife, Mary, is skeptical. Is Paul having a spiritual awakening or is he falling in love with an attractive charlatan? His journey both scares and intrigues her as she watches him struggle to navigate between the business and spiritual worlds. A series of synchronistic events draws Paul closer to Glastonbury and Christine, compelling him and a reluctant Mary to return, unaware that their lives will never be the same.

Odessa, Odessa: A Novel Audiobook

Odessa, Odessa: A Novel

Author: Barbara Artson Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: March 2020

Odessa, Odessa follows the families of two sons from a proud lineage of rabbis and cantors in a shtetl near Odessa in western Russia. It begins as Henya, wife of Rabbi Mendel Kolopsky, considers an unexpected pregnancy and the hardships ahead for the children she already has. Soon after the child is born, Cossacks ransack the Kolopskys's home, severely beating Mendel. In the aftermath, he tells Henya that, contrary to his brother Shimshon's belief that socialism is their ticket to escaping the region's brutal anti-Semitic pogroms, he still believes America holds the answer. Henya, meanwhile, understands that any future will be perilous: she now knows their baby daughter, who has slept through this night of melee, is surely deaf. So begins a beautifully told story that unfolds over decades of the twentieth century-a story in which two families, joined in tradition and parted during persecution, will remain bound by their fateful decision to leave Odessa.

The Day Approaching: An Israeli's Message of Warning and Hope for the Last Days Audiobook

The Day Approaching: An Israeli's Message of Warning and Hope for the Last Days

Author: Amir Tsarfati Narrator: Amir Tsarfati Release Date: March 2020

When Jesus spoke about the last days, He said that certain signs would make it clear His return is near. What are those signs? And are they evident today? As a Jewish native Israeli who is a Christian, Amir Tsarfati has a distinct perspective that weaves biblical history, current events, and Bible prophecy together to shine light on the mysteries about the end times. From his vantage point at the epicenter of today's religious conflict and through careful Bible study, Tsarfati points to Scripture passages that inform us the return of the Lord is imminent. In The Day Approaching, you will learn about God's plan for the world, Israel, the church, and you; that the signs of Christ's return are visible all around us; about the smokescreen of deception that will lure people away from truth; how even now God is revealing Himself to people and changing their hearts; and of the wonders that await us in Jesus's future millennial kingdom. As you seek hope and clarity about earth's final days, let the Bible alone be the one resource you turn to for answers.

The Anunnaki Chronicles: A Zecharia Sitchin Reader Audiobook

The Anunnaki Chronicles: A Zecharia Sitchin Reader

Author: Zecharia Sitchin Narrator: Luke Robinson Release Date: March 2020

An insider's look into the decades of research behind Zecharia Sitchin's books as well as an in-depth overview of his theories and discoveries • Includes carefully selected chapters from the Earth Chronicles series as well as never-before-published letters, articles, and lectures • Each piece includes an introduction, offering context and insight into Sitchin's passionate work and revealing the man behind the theories • Explains the genesis of The 12th Planet, the Anunnaki influences on the Sumerian civilization, the orbit of Nibiru, the prehistory of the Americas, the extraterrestrial origins of modern man, and much more What if the tales from the Old Testament and other ancient writings, such as those from Sumer, Babylon, Egypt, and Greece, were not myths or allegory but accounts of actual historical events? Known for his ability to read and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian clay tablets, Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010) took the words of our most ancient ancestors as fact and, through decades of meticulous research, showed that they revealed a coherent narrative about the true origins of humanity and civilization. Drawing both widespread interest and criticism, his Earth Chronicles series of books, beginning with The 12th Planet, detailed how humanity arose after the arrival of the Anunnaki ("those who from Heaven to Earth came"), alien "gods" who created modern man in their own image and imparted gifts of civilizing knowledge. Providing an insider's look into the decades of research behind Zecharia Sitchin's complete works as well as an in-depth overview of his theories, this collection includes carefully selected chapters from the Earth Chronicles series as well as never-before-published letters, articles, and lectures. We learn about the genesis of The 12th Planet in "The Book as a Story," the Sumerians and their Anunnaki influences in "The Sudden Civilization," the orbit of Nibiru in "UFOs, Pyramids, and the 12th Planet," the prehistory of the Americas in "Cities Lost and Found," the extraterrestrial origins of modern man in "The Cosmic Connection--DNA," and much more. We get to read never-before-published lectures, culled from Sitchin's decades of presentations, as well as the article that spurred the writing of There Were Giants Upon the Earth. Each piece includes an introduction by Sitchin's niece, offering context and insight into Sitchin's passionate work. These introductions reveal the man behind the theories, a world traveler known for his scholarship, dry humor, and precisely chosen words. If his theories are true, as Sitchin wholeheartedly believed, then this collection presents some of the most important knowledge we have of our origins and future.

Digging Up Armageddon: The Search for the Lost City of Solomon Audiobook

Digging Up Armageddon: The Search for the Lost City of Solomon

Author: Eric H. Cline Narrator: Eric H. Cline Release Date: March 2020

A vivid portrait of the early years of biblical archaeology from the acclaimed author of 1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed In 1925, James Henry Breasted, famed Egyptologist and director of the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago, sent a team of archaeologists to the Holy Land to excavate the ancient site of Megiddo—Armageddon in the New Testament—which the Bible says was fortified by King Solomon. Their excavations made headlines around the world and shed light on one of the most legendary cities of biblical times, yet little has been written about what happened behind the scenes. Digging Up Armageddon brings to life one of the most important archaeological expeditions ever undertaken, describing the site and what was found there, including discoveries of gold and ivory, and providing an up-close look at the internal workings of a dig in the early years of biblical archaeology. The Chicago team left behind a trove of writings and correspondence spanning more than three decades, from letters and cablegrams to cards, notes, and diaries. Eric Cline draws on these materials to paint a compelling portrait of a bygone age of archaeology. He masterfully sets the expedition against the backdrop of the Great Depression in America and the growing troubles and tensions in British Mandate Palestine. He gives readers an insider's perspective on the debates over what was uncovered at Megiddo, the infighting that roiled the expedition, and the stunning discoveries that transformed our understanding of the ancient world. Digging Up Armageddon is the enthralling story of an archaeological site in the interwar years and its remarkable place at the crossroads of history.

Kingdom of Nauvoo: The Rise and Fall of a Religious Empire on the American Frontier Audiobook

Kingdom of Nauvoo: The Rise and Fall of a Religious Empire on the American Frontier

Author: Benjamin E. Park Narrator: Bob Souer Release Date: March 2020

An extraordinary story of faith and violence in nineteenth-century America, based on previously confidential documents from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Compared to the Puritans, Mormons have rarely gotten their due, often treated as fringe cultists or marginalized polygamists unworthy of serious examination. In Kingdom of Nauvoo, Benjamin E. Park excavates the brief, tragic life of a lost Mormon city, demonstrating that the Mormons are essential to understanding American history writ large. Using newly accessible sources, Park re-creates the Mormons' 1839 flight from Missouri to Illinois. There, under the charismatic leadership of Joseph Smith, they founded Nauvoo, which shimmered briefly-but Smith's challenge to democratic traditions, as well as his new doctrine of polygamy, would bring about its fall. His wife Emma, rarely written about, opposed him, but the greater threat came from without: in 1844, a mob murdered Joseph, precipitating the Mormon trek to Utah. Throughout his absorbing chronicle, Park shows that far from being outsiders, the Mormons were representative of their era in their distrust of democracy and their attempt to forge a sovereign society of their own.
