Our second release is Fighting for Peace: Combating Conflict with Character by Dr. Dennis Morgan, professor in the Graduate School of Columbia International University.
Conflict in relationships is a fact of life. When people are around each other there is not only the potential for conflict, but there is going to be conflict in some form, to some extent, at some time. Rather than fearing conflict, Dr. Dennis Morgan encourages readers to see conflict as an invitation from God to strengthen relational closeness. Fighting for Peace will challenge you to consider your personal relationship with God, to more fully know and examine yourself, and to move toward others in humility - combating conflict with character.

Our first release is Beyond the Firmament: Understanding Science and the Theology of Creation by Gordon J. Glover, a well-researched and thought-provoking book from an impressive first-time author.
As debates within the Church over the scientific details of creation become more frequent, the experts seem to grow more entrenched while the rest of us only become more confused. Somewhere between the endless arguments over distant starlight and Carbon-14 dating, calculating the mathematical improbabilities of things that already exist, and parsing ancient Hebrew and Greek, somebody needs to ask the simple question: If 3,500 years of scientific progress can't help modern Christians figure out Genesis, then how could the ancient Israelites possibly have understood it so well? What secret did this newly liberated gaggle of Hebrew nomads take with them out of Egypt that holds the key to understanding God's telling of His own creation story?
