"That's my son!" These three words were the tidal wave that destroyed the entire landscape of Robin Farnsworth's life, an ER nurse on duty when she identified the dead man on the stretcher. Growing up in the shadow of death after the loss of her brother, Robin understood the devastation that the death of a child causes. "Where is God?" the eight-year-old girl asks the night sky. As her family crumbles, she runs away, only to come crashing to her knees years later. Broken, alcoholic, and a single mom, she finally gets her answer through a divine appointment with Jesus Christ. Years later, her oldest son, Spencer, would also surrender to Christ, exchanging a life of rage and violence for a transforming peace and freedom. Spencer lived his faith with an unusual passion and urgency that would produce an eternal harvest of changed lives beyond his death. At age twenty-one, he was the unintended target of murder. Where is God? The answer is surprising as the author brings you alongside of her in the midst of monumental pain and darkness, discovering not just where God is, but who he is. This is a story of rescue and redemption, of the power of forgiveness and faith within a mother and her son; two broken and imperfect lives that are intercepted by a loving and almighty God.
Surprised by Jack follows the journey of C. S. Lewis from atheism to belief. The book recounts the people, books, and events that helped in molding both parts of his life. It also explains how, in spite of a number of obstacles, he became one of the greatest writers and scholars of his day, as well as the greatest defender of the Christian faith in the twentieth century. Surprised by Jack will also include an outline and review four of Lewis's greatest apologetic works, Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Abolition of Man, and The Weight of Glory. In this book, you will learn - How the death of Lewis's mother at age ten started him on a downward spiral into a world of cruelty and fear. - How one of Lewis's greatest teachers who prepared him for Oxford was a committed atheist. - How the pledge to a friend resulted in the care of the friend's mother for the rest of her life after his friend's death in World War I. - How an exemption from math tests allowed Lewis to enter Oxford. - How Lewis became the second most recognized voice on the radio during World War II. - What, according to Lewis, the greatest sin is. - Why gluttony is more than a sin of excess. - What the four cardinal virtues are. - Why Lewis never drove a car. - What the trilemma is concerning Jesus. - What will cause "the abolition of man." - Why the devil wants to keep us from logic and argument. - What Lewis said is the "weight of glory."

How will it all end? Come, dear reader, and join with the good and the bad of the Diocese of Lindchester as they navigate their way through the storms of 2016. What does the year hold in this best of times, this worst of times; this season of bake-offs and food banks, of muscular theological hope and hand-wringing theological despair? We will peep through many a stained-glass window in pursuit of answers. Will the new bishop – dubbed Steve-angelical by his detractors – impose the evils of management on the timeless beauty of Anglicanism? Will kind Dean Marion collude with him? Will Archdeacon Matt be the next bishop of Barcup – and what will Jane think of that? And will Freddie – more lovely than a summer’s day, though far less temperate – finally find love and happiness? Times are dark in this, the final volume of the Lindchester Chronicles, but we may yet glimpse a touch of radiance around the grubby edges of our characters. So let us soar as best we can on Anglican wings, towards those unseen Realms of Glory. ‘Catherine Fox's glorious Lindchester series is the twenty-first-century answer to Trollope’s Barchester – but Trollope was never so funny, so fundamentally kind, or so mischievously attentive to grace.’ Francis Spufford, author of Golden Hill
