Journey Out Of Nothing: My Buddhist Path to Christianity, by Martin Roth, has been discounted to just $2.99 today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Religion

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

While in his twenties and thirties, international journalist and best-selling author Martin Roth, living in Japan, became deeply involved in Zen Buddhism. So much so that he co-authored a reference work on the subject, “Zen Guide.”

Now he explains the attraction of Buddhism to himself and to other young Westerners. He also recounts – often in amusing detail – some of his adventures.

He became possibly the first Westerner to complete a famous pilgrimage to thirty-three temples in northern Japan. On another pilgrimage he spent three days hiking through some of Japan’s holiest mountains, sometimes standing under frigid waterfalls in purification rituals. He stayed at famous monasteries, often participating in morning worship services full of dazzling ceremonies.

He introduces some of the fascinating people he met. These include the young priest who lived and meditated in a giant soy sauce barrel; the professor who devised “commuting Zen” meditation for his strap-hanging one-and-a-half-hour rail commute to work each day; and the American advertising executive who became head of his own Japanese Zen temple, a place where Caroline Kennedy, now US ambassador to Japan, stayed during her honeymoon.

But he also explains why his interest in Buddhism began to fade, and why, today, he is a Christian.

This short book (18,000 words), part travel adventure, part memoir, part spiritual odyssey, will entertain and inform.

Apostle Paul, King David, and Gideon are all some of the Bible’s greatest figures, and they all had one thing in common….

…they were all flawed! That’s right, these great men of God were all flawed. In fact, they all had several flaws. Why is this important? It’s important because everyone- including yourself- shares this trait with these great figures. By examining their characters and how they were able to overcome their flaws in the light of God’s glory, we can learn to better ourselves through our own flaws and begin building our faith stronger than ever!

In “Flawed but Faithful- Finding Meaning in our Faults”, we examine how nobody is perfect and how this common trait can be used to spur personal growth. In this inspirational book, you will see how the Apostle Paul needed time to turn to God, how King David overcame his great sins to become a man of God, and how Gideon learned to trust his faith when he originally needed proof of God’s amazing love. Many of us struggle with sins and our faith from time-to-time, and we are not alone. This important look at the Bible reminds us of that and encourages us to do better.

God knows you aren’t perfect, just as he knew these Bible figures were not perfect. He was patient with them and loved them regardless, and He will welcome you in the same way. Learn to embrace imperfection, trust your faith, undergo tremendous personal growth, and become a stronger Christian in this inspirational book. An in-depth look at some of the Bible’s greatest stories about imperfection and how it relates to our modern lives complements the author’s intelligent commentary to show you the path to a stronger faith.

Ryan, Hannah’s mischievous fourteen-year-old brother, is headed straight for the remedial track at the local community college, if he’s lucky. Ben, her eight-year-old brother, is a walking sound effects machine, who prefers to communicate with noises rather than words. While Hannah is focused on escaping her working-class Connecticut suburb, she also finds herself being tugged back home as she worries about her brother Ben.

Hannah’s parents inflict one last family vacation on the Sampson children, a trip that goes comically wrong almost from the get-go. Hannah is forced to confront her family’s past in Disney World, of all places, when an emotional argument prompts her parents to disclose a secret they have been keeping from the children for sixteen years.

Harmony Wolcott has lived her entire life on the fringe, wishing more often than not that she could end it all. After a failed suicide attempt heightens her visibility in the Child Protective Services system, she has no choice but to hide the details about the home life she’s run from.

Adam, Harmony’s formerly homeless boyfriend, has learned to fend for himself. Despite a past he’s reluctant to talk about, Adam has risen above his circumstances and is trying to get Harmony to do the same.

Only loving someone so damaged isn’t easy.

A recurring nightmare chips away at Harmony’s facade of normalcy, reminding her of a time hidden so deep in her memory that it blurs the line between dream and reality.

Brea, who is trying to piece together the mystery of why her father walked out on their family fourteen years earlier, knows it’s something to do with Harmony’s mother and a night no one is willing to talk about.

A tragic discovery threatens to unravel Harmony’s patched together life, dragging both Brea and Adam down with her and proving, with devastating consequences, that sometimes the past is better left buried.

When a brilliant emigré scientist is killed by a hit and run driver and a young woman’s body is washed up in the Thames, Merlin and his team must investigate. The woman is an employee of the American Embassy, whose Ambassador at this time is Joseph Kennedy.

DCI Merlin’s investigation of diplomats at the Embassy ruffles feathers at the Foreign Office – the American Ambassador is a well-known supporter of appeasement and many powerful and influential Britons favour the pursuit of a negotiated peace settlement with Hitler.

The death of another Embassy employee leads Merlin into some of the seedier quarters of wartime London where a corrupt night-club owner, various high-flying diplomats and the Ambassador himself appear to be linked to the events surrounding the deaths.

Merlin has to pursue his detective work under the interfering supervision of an Assistant Metropolitan Commissioner who is fearful about the impact of Merlin’s investigations on Anglo-American relations at a time when America represents to many Britain’s only hope of salvation.

Capturing the atmosphere of Britain in 1940 during the ‘phoney war’ when, although war rages on the Continent, life continues relatively peacefully in Britain, Princes Gate is an enthralling detective novel.

Love in a Time of War, by Suzanne Elizabeth Andersen, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars based on 12 customer reviews.

Category: Historical Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

NOTE FROM SUZANNE: Love in a Time of War is a romantic re-imagining of my first novel, Mrs. Tuesday’s Departure. How did this happen? As I was working with my editor on the second edition of Mrs. Tuesday, we began asking ‘what-if’ questions about the relationship between Natalie and Deszo. LOVE as the title suggests contains both a romance and the happy ending that readers told me they wanted. It is with great happiness that I am able to provide both in this story.

In this emotionally powerful WWII drama, children’s book writer Natalie Lucas looks to her faith in God to help her beloved Jewish niece Mila escape the approaching Nazi menace in Hungary.

Natalie’s twin sister, the celebrated poet and professor, Anna Lucas, has succumbed to early-onset dementia, making the situation even more unstable for Natalie and Mila.

Natalie and Anna’s personal and professional relationship provides an interesting subplot whch focuses on the foundations of sisterly love.

Meanwhile, surrounded by violence and the threat of capture, Natalie must find a safe way out of the country for Mila. She eventually turns to her teenage sweetheart, Deszo, a Professor whom she rejected in order to marry her first love, Max.

The past love triangle between Deszo, Natalie and Anna adds further complications; however, Deszo may provide Mila with her only chance of escape. As Natalie and Deszo are thrown together by their mission to save Mila, their love for one another is re-ignighted.

After the Nazis learn of Deszo’s assistance to the Jews, he and Natalie are brutally interrogated by a Nazi officer who has been following their activities, and their lives are in danger. After many doubts as to who in their community is friend or foe, the novel culminates with a heart-wrenching conclusion which provokes questions of loyalty, family and above all—faith.

Author’s Note: Love in a Time of War is a re-telling of Mrs. Tuesday’s Departure, my first novel.

Soon after Brook is haunted by a series of vivid dreams and visions all centred round Arwan and a strange nebulous world every bit as mysterious and intriguing as he, leaving her to question who, or what, is Arwan Jones and why does she feel such a fundamental need to be near him?

When their relationship takes a surprising turn Brook resolves to learn the truth about Arwan and what lies between them, while unwittingly becoming embroiled in the sinister goings on of a not so sleepy village.

Will Brook be able to live with the reality that Arwan is no mere mortal; or indeed, the discovery that she has a history of running from her past? And the past has its way of catching up . . .

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Recommended for 17 years and older – language / mature subject matter

“Who saves a hero?”

Julie Lawrence is a Victim’s Advocate for the Denver PD. Her job is to respond to domestic violence incidents, fires, car accidents and other tragic events where people need help dealing with their darkest moments. She has had her own share of tragedies in the past which gives her empathy and a unique insight into victims and what they need to heal and move on with their lives. But she is better at giving advice than taking it and has closed herself off from sharing her life with anyone or anything except a stray tiger-striped gray cat.

Rusty Wilson is a firefighter with a reputation for working hard and playing harder. He meets Julie while he is trying to save a burning house and she is protecting a battered wife and an unborn child. He is attracted to her, but not ready to settle down. To his surprise, she resists even his most platonic attempts at developing a relationship. One day a typical call turns into a hostage situation, and Julie rushes to the scene, partly in her role of Victim’s Advocate and partly because Rusty is involved.

She finally accepts his offer of friendship, and as they get to know each other better, they realize they have a lot in common. When a stalker starts playing a cat-and-mouse game with Julie, she and Rusty work together, trying to figure out which of her past domestic violence cases has created a psycho who wants revenge. In her line of work, there are a lot of people who want her dead.

Julie has no idea who is trying to kill her. The warnings had started out as just creepy, but gradually turn into genuine threats on her life. Rusty provides the emotional and moral support she hadn’t realized she needed until the danger increases. Their love affair starts in the heat of passion and ends when he finds out her secrets.

Someone is watching . . . and waiting. Julie has dedicated herself to saving other people. Who’s going to save her?
