Seasoned Author Reveals His Thoughts on Prophecy and Symbolism in the Books of Daniel and Revelation

Many writers have tackled the prophetic riddle in Daniel 9 and the symbolic language in Daniel and Revelation. Yet retired missionary and pastor Joe E. Tarry takes a unique approach in his new book, The Last Week of Seven Years and the Apostle John's Surprise. His placement within history of the "last week of years"--discussed in Daniel 9--and his division of Revelation into three parts reveal new insight into these passages. It's a must-read for every Christian.


"12 + Me" Receives "Very Entertaining" Review

In a review by Narita, blogger at The Old Crow's Empty Nest, "12 + Me" by Pat Likes received high marks. We provided a complimentary copy to Narita for her honest review, and we were pleased to see that she thought the book was "very entertaining" and that she "would be proud to give [it] as a gift to a young reader." We appreciate her honest comments. To read the entire review, click here.

"12 + Me" is written by Pat Likes, alias "Pike County Patsie", the youngest of the 13 Dunker children. In the book, she relives her growing-up years in a farm home just across the shining Mississippi from Mark Twain's Hannibal, MO.
You'll laugh and cry over the adventures and escapades of Pat's close-knit, fun-loving family. The book includes stories of Mom Dunker's "gentleman cow", Dad's Christmas gelatin, a mysterious corpse, a marauding tomcat called Slick Blue, sparrows in a brother's wedding bed, and much, much more.

From wild horseback rides to Model A Fords, homemade bread to "mouse pies", here are memories of the pleasures and hardships of country living you'll never forget.

Through tough times and good ones, life and love fill the Dunker home. Patsie's memories (and recipes) bring readers into the warm circle of her family's life in the 1930s and 1940s and underscore the values of hearth and home.


We Are Racing as Fast as Possible to Convert All of Its Books into Ebooks

The task is not quite as simple as it sounds, because books produced even five years ago in older publishing software have to transition through some extra (and complicated) steps to move from one medium to the other.

Still, we are finding the effort worth the time and money involved. Sometime this year we will sell more ebooks than we sell paperback books in a month. Had someone predicted that fact just six months ago, we would have thought that person delirious or something worse.

The speed at which the reading public is changing its reading style is not the only thing that's eye-popping. What's selling is equally amazing. Kay W. Moore's Christian fiction When the Heart Soars Free (published in 2000) in a matter of days went from being almost ready to retire to becoming our fastest-selling ebook. It has outdistanced all our other ebooks combined by a factor of two. It was and is a captivating Christian romance novel with a solid biblical message. Clearly God was not through using that novel, which is set in a Colorado ski lodge.

At the same time some books that have done incredibly well in print--and that we expected to do equally as well in ebook format--are still catching on as ebooks but at a slower pace. Go figure!

Clearly like all other publishers we have a lot to learn about this "brave new world" into which book publishing is rapidly entering today. We'll keep you posted as this transition continues to unfurl. Meanwhile, if you want to read our best-selling ebook, here's the link to our website which then will take you to the Kindle store for purchase. When the Heart Soars Free also is available in Barnes & Noble's Nook format and soon will be available in Apple's format also.


Father's Day Discount

We're celebrating Father's Day with a special discount: 30% off and free shipping on Now My Eye Sees You by Greg Ammons, the story of one father's experience that gave him a fresh perspective on God's love. Simply use coupon code FDAY30 (expires June 17, 2012)

Three degrees in theology, years in the pastorate, daily immersion in the Scriptures: they all taught Greg Ammons head knowledge of God. But not until he and his wife, Lisa, became late-in-life, first-time parents with the birth of their son, Camden, did Greg truly "see"—experience the matchless understanding of—the God he had worshiped and served for decades.

After years of barrenness ended with his son's miracle birth, Greg suddenly began to experience love from the role of a father personally. His book draws comparisons between his relationship with his son and that of his God in such areas as obedience and disobedience, spending time together, parental pain, teaching a child to walk, the sinful nature, and a father's unconditional love.

Readers will emerge with a fresh understanding of God's boundless love for them and how His heart delights in intimate fellowship with his sons and daughters.

During his 27 years in vocational ministry Greg Ammons has preached, served as a senior pastor, taught theology at the graduate level, and advised as a church-growth consultant. Currently he is senior pastor of First Baptist Church, Garland, TX.
