  • Dietrich Bonhoeffer : In The Midst Of Wickedness

    $6.50

    As Dietrich sang the German national anthem, he contemplated the devastation Hitler and the Nazis were perpetrating on Europe. Dietrich would do whatever he could to stop them, even if it meant pulling the trigger on the fuhrer himself. He had thought about it from every angle, and his conscience was clear.

    Born into a loving family, Dietrich Bonhoeffer pursued a life as a pastor, teacher, theologian — and spy. He spoke out about the trouble in Germany when Adolph Hitler came to power, urging the Christian church to rescue disparaged people groups and resist Hitler’s evil empire.

    Accused of being a troublemaker, Dietrich continued on fearlessly in the midst of wickedness. His work as a spy in the German resistance and participation in a plot to assassinate Hitler led to imprisonment and eventual execution. But the lesson of his life story remains: Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

  • Jim Elliot : One Great Purpose

    A NEW STANDARD HAS BEEN SET IN CHRISTIAN BIOGRAPHY!

    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose

    Jim and Pete turned to see the Auca men, their deadly spears raised, running toward Nate, Ed, and Roger. Jim stood in the river, his hand on his pistol. Should he defend himself? He already knew the answer. Each man had promised the others that he would not save himself by killing those they had sought out in Jesus’ name.

  • Nate Saint : On A Wing And A Prayer

    $6.50

    Seven-year-old Nate Saint peered wide-eyed over the cockpit of his older brother Sam’s Challenger biplane. The eastern Pennsylvania countryside was spread out neatly below him like a fine tablecloth. Nate was determined to remember every moment of this first high-flying adventure.
