Enter By The Narrow Gate


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A teenage girl has vanished in Santa Fe. Nearby, in the Trappist monastery of St. Mary of the Snows, a beautiful young nun is stabbed to death. Father Nicholas Fortis is on sabbatical at St. Mary's, and when Lieutenant Christopher Worthy of the Detroit Police Department is flown in to help find the missing teenager, the Orthodox monk asks his friend to delve into the nun's murder as well. The two men make a perfect team: the monk's gregarious manner opens hearts and the detective's keen intuition infiltrates psyches. The Book of Matthew refers to the "narrow gate" that leads to heaven. Each of the key players in these two cases was rattling heaven's gate in a frantic and even dangerous quest for salvation. Lieutenant Sera Lacey of the Santa Fe Police, with her captivating looks and insight into the Native Americans and cultures of the Southwest, proves both a boon and a distraction for Worthy. As Father Fortis navigates the social hierarchy of the monks of St. Mary's, he begins to fear their secret agendas. Bowing to the pressure to solve both cases, the investigators let the clues lead them in opposite directions. At the end of one of those paths, Death awaits. Book one in a new detective series featuring Christopher Worthy and Father Fortis.

Destination Heaven


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In todays post-Christian culture of liberalism, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that to be Christian means to be called out of the world and be set aside unto the Lord Jesus Christ. As we approach the end of the age and of the world, as we know it, the Lord continues to give numerous heavenly visitations and dreams about him to take Christians home in what we call the rapture of the church. One recurring theme in many of these supposedly spiritual experiences is the number of professing Christians that could be going to hell. Well, it is easy to dismiss these as figments of hallucinations and fertile imaginations gone wild. But a cursory glance at the church scene clearly shows that something is not right with many of professing believers. This book seeks to jolt Christians into rediscovering their first love and awake from their slumber to ensure that their lives match their profession. Christianity is one of the most liberal of all religions. In Christian theology, it is God who takes the initiative to reconcile mankind to himself (John 3:16). He make total and full provision for man to receive forgiveness of sins and come into a personal relationship with God without any expenditure or effort on his/her part. In that sense, Christianity is an easy religion. That is the essence of grace. But that could be deceptive because it is easy for the Christian adherent to fall into the false notion that grace means anything goes. This Christian discipleship book attempts to wake Christians to the fact that like an athlete, there is a right lifestyle and a way to compete that will guarantee you a medal at the Olympics and a wrong lifestyle and a way to compete that could lead to disqualification and a loss of potential medal. Much illustration is made of the Old Testament saints who started their journey with the Lord with optimistic enthusiasm but whose faith was made shipwreck along the way. This is true of the Israelites who were delivered from Egyptian bondage and servitude and journeyed to the Promised Land, but the text says, With most of them, God was not well pleased, and their bodies were scattered in the wilderness. The text clearly says these experiences were written as warnings and examples to us because if we make the same mistakes they did, a similar fate awaits us (1 Corinthians 10:113). Wisdom gives away what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose. In our day and age, the greatest snares are relational issues of unforgiveness, bitterness, and strife. We are also warned against such moral weaknesses as fornication, adultery, and other aberrant sexual behavior. The Bible clearly warns that those who practice these would not inherit the kingdom of God. This is a major theme of most of the New Testament Epistles. This book is also evangelistic because at its heart, it seeks to showcase the love of God and his eternal invitation to all mankind to be reconciled to him.

What Did Jesus Mean


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In this highly interdisciplinary work, linguist Anna Wierzbicka casts new light on the words of Jesus by taking her well-known semantic theory of "universal human concepts"- concepts which are intuitively understandable and self-explanatory across languages-and bringing it to bear on Jesus' parables and the Sermon on the Mount. Her approach results in strikingly novel interpretations of the Gospels. Written in dialogue with other biblical commentators, What Did Jesus Mean? is both scholarly rigorous yet accessible.

Enter Ye In At The Strait Gate


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Written with the enthusiasm of missionary zeal and the goal to deter people from the “wide gate,” Enter Ye in at the Strait Gate presents the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by the Mormons. Author Louis A Kelsch, a lifetime member of the Mormon Church who has served in various callings and capacities in his faith, offers an easy-to-understand interpretation of his religion to facilitate better understanding and acceptance of the dogma of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This study explains that the LDS Church is organized exactly like the church the Lord Jesus Christ created in the meridian of time. As a completely restored church, it continues today with the same beliefs, practices, and organization experienced by those early-day saints as presented in the New Testament writings of the King James Version of the Holy Bible. In this discussion, Kelsch examines and explains the Godhead, the Great Apostasy, the Restoration, the Book of Mormon, the principles of the gospel and the Scriptures, and the plan of salvation. Geared toward the investigator, those less active in faith, and those struggling with testimony, Enter Ye in at the Strait Gate provides an outline of the fruits one can expect from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
