Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip and the hard drinking Irish vampire Cassidy, the Preacher loses faith in both man and God as he witnesses dark atrocities and improbable calamities during his exploration of America.

Heartfelt, caustic, and unapologetically profane, Preacher follows the epic journey of the Reverend Jesse Custer as he tracks down a fugitive God to make him answer for the sufferings of His own creation. From the mansions of San Francisco to the foothills of the Alps to the sawdust-strewn bars of New York City, Jesse and his friends cut a righteous path across a fallen world and through the soul of America in their quest for the divine - an effort which will be met by every evil that Heaven and Earth can assemble.

The Preacher's Daughter begins a remarkable journey of heartache and homespun delight--a series readers will find impossible to forget. Paradise, Pennsylvania, is likened to a little slice of heaven on earth...but for Annie Zook--the preacher's eldest daughter--it seems like a dead-end street. She is expected to join the Amish church, but at 20 she is "still deciding." Because of the strict rules that guide the Plain community, she must continually squelch her artistic passion, although it has become her solace. In her signature style, with character depth and unexpected plot twists, beloved novelist Beverly Lewis once again opens the door to the world of the Amish.

What does it mean to preach the gospel today? How do we shape vibrant congregations? How do we preachers not merely survive, but thrive? For nearly a quarter century, Chris Neufeld-Erdman has preached the gospel--sustaining congregational life and emboldening Christian witness in the midst of this turbulence. He's also taught seminarians and mentored working pastors. His theology and practice of preaching is hammered out on the anvil of real life. It's tested. True. Useful. In this book, a veteran pastor meditates on everything from exegesis and sermon preparation to the way preachers might preach after tsunamis, hurricanes, and earthquakes. He reflects on what it means, for example, to host the text in the midst of what feels like a terminal state of war and violence, both abroad and at home, as well as the task of preaching in the midst of the massive anxiety produced by economic uncertainty and political gridlock. Here's a book that will inspire and guide you as a wise, empowered preacher--an ordinary agent of the extraordinary gospel.

BLURB Smooth and handsome, sociopath, Jamie Lee Vincent decides there's easy money in religion after attending a big tent revival in his home town of Tyler, Texas. Catching the interest of Reverend Sonny Riverton's youngest daughter, the lovely and vivacious, Missy, Jamie Lee worms his way into the Riverton clan and rides it for all it's worth into a world of fame and fortune. EXCERPT Bert set the beer down. "That'll be two-fifty." Jamie Lee handed him three bucks. "Keep it." Bert nodded. Jamie Lee picked up his lager and rotated his bar stool. Looking through the smoky haze, his gaze zeroed in on a cute blonde girl in the booth on the other side of the bar. She wore her hair up with curls draped over a pink ribbon. She sat with three others, a girl and two men all wearing western clothes. Unabashed, Jamie Lee stared at the lady. She is delicious. She glanced up and when he caught her gaze, she quickly averted her eyes. After whispering something to her companion, he nodded and slid out of the booth. She scooted out and headed in the direction of the restrooms, which were opposite of where they sat. While she glided in their direction, Jamie Lee studied her. She was average in height with blue eyes. She wore a short tight jean skirt, which accentuated the positives and cowboy boots. The creamy skin of her midriff laid exposed, her full breasts covered by a tied off, floral blouse. I've gotta taste that luscious morsel. She must have noticed Jamie Lee staring at her, because she seemed to hold back a smile and several feet from the restroom, her graceful glide turned into a sexy sashay. Jamie Lee elbowed Tommy and hitched his chin in the direction of the approaching blonde. "Who's the blonde bombshell?" Tommy followed his stare. "Somebody told me she's Sonny Riverton's daughter. They're in town you know. For a tent revival. You nevah answered me, Bud. You gonna take her out again?" Staring at the hot blonde, he asked, "Take who out?" Tommy rolled his eyes. "Cheryl." "Naw, she's too inexperienced. Now, I'll bet that sweet little thing over there isn't inexperienced. Who's Sonny Riverton, anyway?" "You never heard of Reverend Riverton? He's on the TV every Sunday." Tommy bit down on a pretzel. "So you wouldn't mind if I asked her out?" Jamie Lee took a big swig of his beer. "And that's his daughter?" Tommy slammed his empty beer glass down on the bar. "Damn it, Jamie Lee!" He turned to Tommy. "What?" Tommy's gaze rose to the ceiling as if looking for help from a higher power. "Do you care if I ask Cheryl out?" He did care. Had unfinished business, but when the Reverend's daughter peered at him with that twinkle in her eye and offered a friendly smile, just before turning into the restroom vestibule, he completely forgot about Cheryl. He shook his head. "Naw. You go ahead. But after tonight, I'd make sure she gargles with Listerine before I kiss her." He punched Tommy lightly on the shoulder and chuckled. "Now, tell me about this tent revival." "I don't know about this one, but they had another one here two summers ago. The TV station I sometimes work for sent me to film it, which was fine with me, seeing as how I wanted to find out what it was like. Don't you remember it?" "Naw, musta missed it. Oh, wait, now I remember. I worked as a camp counselor that summer.

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
