The church is tired of seeing Christians act ungraciously toward one another when they disagree. Social media has added to the carnage. Christians routinely block each other on Facebook because of doctrinal disagreements. The world watches the bloodletting, and the Christian witness is tarnished. But what if every Christian discovered that his or her favorite teacher in church history had blind spots and held to some false - and even shocking - views? Best-selling author Frank Viola argues that this simple awareness will soften Christians when they interact with each other in the face of theological disagreements. In ReGrace, he uncovers some of the shocking beliefs held by faith giants like C.S. Lewis, Luther, Calvin, Moody, Spurgeon, Wesley, Graham, and Augustine - not to downgrade or dismiss them, but to show that even ´´the greats´´ in church history didn´t get everything right. Knowing that the heroes of our faith sometimes got it wrong will empower us to treat our fellow Christians with grace rather than disdain whenever we disagree over theology. 1. Language: English.

Billionaire genius Genoa Greeves never got over the shocking death of her favorite teacher, Bennett ´´Dr. Ben´´ Alston Little, murdered execution-style and stuffed into the trunk of his Mercedes-Benz. No arrests were ever made, no killer charged for the brutal crime. Fifteen years later, the high-tech CEO reads about another execution-style murder; this time the victim is a Hollywood music producer named Primo Ekerling. There is no obvious connection, but the case is eerily similar to Little´s, and Genoa feels the time is right to close Dr. Ben´s case once and for all - offering the L.A.P.D. a substantial financial ´´incentive´´ if justice is finally served for Little. Lieutenant Peter Decker resents having to commit valuable manpower to a 15-year-old open case simply because a rich woman says ´´Jump!´´ Still, the recent murder of Primo Ekerling does bear a disturbing resemblance to Little´s case, even though two thug suspects are currently behind bars for the Ekerling murder. Decker can´t help but wonder about a connection. His first phone calls are to the two primary investigators in the Little case, retired detectives Calvin Vitton and Arnie Lamar. Lamar is cooperative, but Vitton is not only reluctant to talk, he winds up dead of a suspicious suicide 12 hours later. Plunging into this long-buried murder, Decker discovers that even though the two slayings are separated by a decade and a half, there is still plenty of greed, lust, and evil to connect the dots. Decker´s team of top investigators not only includes his favorite homicide detectives, Scott Oliver and Marge Dunn, but also his newly minted Hollywood detective daughter, Cindy Kutiel, whose help proves to be invaluable. His wife, Rina Lazarus, continues to be his backbone of support, offering a cool, rational outlook despite her growing concern for her husband´s welfare and safety. Rina´s worries and fears begin to build at a fevered pitch as past and present collide with a vengea 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Guidall.

Who hasn´t experienced a pang of lust or longing at a photo of a male model? Whether a hundred times life size on a billboard or romping through the pages of a glossy magazine in his Calvins, Tommys, or Ralphs, the male model is the gold standard for masculine beauty. The characters in these stories run the gamut, from the billboard-gracing Aiden in Cynthia Hamilton´s ´´Big Picture´´, to life models in drawing classes, to runway models, to ordinary guys immortalized in a catalog shoot in T. Hitman´s ´´When Gary Met Larry´´. They hook up with artists, photographers, roommates, and lovers, in locations from New York to Miami to a beach in Australia, and many places in between. One thing all the male models here have in common is sex appeal and a yen for man-on-man action. These aren´t the kind of guys who say, ´´look but don´t touch´´ - they want to be touched, and in all the right places! The authors here, some of the best writing in gay erotica today, have taken hold of the idea of the male model and run with it.

The Singer quickly became a favorite of evangelists, pastors, artists, students, teachers, and readers of all sorts when it was originally published in 1975. Retelling the story of Christ through an allegorical and poetic narrative of a Singer whose Song could not be silenced, Miller´s work reinvigorated Christian literature and offered believers and seekers the world over a deeply personal encounter with the gospel.The Song is a poetic narrative in the tradition of C.S. Lewis´s Narnia Chronicles and J.R.R. Tolkien´s Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Song is Calvin Miller´s sequel to his earlier, very popular book, The Singer. Miller tells the story of Anthem and Everyman who leave the Great Walled City and travel to Urbis, the city of the Poet King, where followers of the Singer are martyred for their faith. As The Singer parallels the story of the Gospels, so The Song shows certain parallels to the Book of Acts. The Finale is Calvin Miller´s completion of his trilogy including The Singer and The Song. In this final volume, Miller tells the story of the Singer´s final battle with World Hater and envisions in dynamic prosepoetry the winding up of history on Terra One and the creation of Terra Two. As The Singer parallels the story of the Gospels and The Song parallels the book of Acts, so The Finale is an artistic retelling of the book of Revelation. 1. Language: English.
