The following books were added to our library in September:
An Imperfect Woman
by Kim Hyland
The author states that “there is a difference between perfection and perfectionism, which is to achieve perfection on our own, by our own strength, and for our own purposes—the original temptation in the garden.” She encourages women to reject pride, condemnation, anxiety and to embrace humility, forgiveness, and true peace. Every chapter is based on scripture defining how God wants us to live. Her style is easy to read but very thought provoking.
Why I Still Believe
by Joe Boot
The book jacket states: “Joe Boot invites nonbelievers to step inside the Christian worldview to see whether it provides satisfying answers to life’s ultimate questions. Boot also steps into the non-Christian worldview, showing how it ultimately fails to make sense of the world. Whether you are a skeptic or a Christian seeking a relevant apologetic for our postmodern culture, you will benefit from this insightful and accessible book.”
by Laure Frantz
This story takes place in colonial Williamsburg as tensions are heating up before the American Revolution. Elizabeth is the daughter of the British lieutenant governor of the Virginia Colony but she doesn’t share her father’s sentiments. When she is jilted by her British fiancé she must support herself as her father has left the area for a more British friendly are up the coast. She must decide where her loyalty lies.
by Bob Goff
The book cover states: “Everybody, Always reveals the lessons Bob learned—often the hard way—about what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction. From finding the right friends to discovering the upside of failure, Everybody, Always points the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating, the seemingly impossible.”
The Cost of Betrayal
by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, Lynette
This book contains three novellas written by three different romantic suspense writers. Each author tells a tale of danger, betrayal and mystery.
Who moved My Pulpit?

This book is for all pastors seeking to lead their churches to change. This book is for church staff and lay leaders who want to make a positive contribution toward leading change in the church.”
