Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
This C.S. Lewis favorite contains 31 letters written by a senior demon named Screwtape to his nephew, Wormwood (named after a star in Revelation).

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 - Iscariot by Tosca Lee
Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee brilliantly adapts the life of Judas Iscariot into a dazzling and award-winning work of fiction—humanizing the man whose very name is synonymous with betrayal. History has called him many things: Thief. Liar. Traitor. Reviled throughout history and infamous for his suicide, he is the man whose very name is synonymous with betrayal . . . And he is the only disciple that Jesus called “friend.” 368 pages.

A new study guide is included in each book. 488 pages.
Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - She is Mine by Stephanie Fast
Her father was an American serviceman, her mother a young Korean woman confused by the ravages of war.

But God had other plans and revealed them through the words, "She Is Mine." 224 pages.
