An Amish Love

Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller and Kelly Long | Thomas Nelson

An Amish Love is a collection of three romance novellas on matters of the heart.

Kelly Long’s Marriage of the Heart sees Abigail Kauffman wanting to escape the Amish way by deceiving Joseph Lambert into marrying her. Her patience helps Joseph in his return from English life, including facing his struggles of drug addiction.

Kathleen Fuller’s What the Heart Sees is the story of Ellie Chupp, blinded in a car accident that killed her best friend, Caroline. Five years later, Ellie’s courage to overcome her disability impacts Caroline’s former fiancé, Christopher Miller, when he returns to the community that once banned him.

Finally, Beth Wiseman’s Healing Hearts deals with the struggles in marriage as Naaman Lapp returns to his wife of 31 years, Levina, after spending a year in Ohio. Levina fears she may never trust the man she still loves and hopes that one day they can return to the love they once knew.

Entertaining and heartwarming, the three novellas in this collection weave together true characters of faith. A glossary of Amish terms, a group study and recipes are added bonus materials in the reading experience.

Life is throwing Jules Matias a lot of curveballs and they're coming at her all at once. Jules has had to break off her engagement to Cruz Delgado not once, but twice. She loves him, but she had good reason, or a good person—Pop—to make such a sacrifice.

Jules’ chief concerns are caring for her father’s potato farm and restoring a relationship with her sister.

Common Prayer

Shane Claiborne, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove and Enuma Okoko | Zondervan

Not to be read alone, Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals was not written alone either. Shane Claiborne, an activist who lives in a “new monastic” community in inner-city Philadelphia; Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, a Baptist minister also in a monastic community; and Enuma Okoko, a woman who was formerly director for Duke Divinity School’s Center for Theological Writing, came together as a team to create this volume.

Seeing liturgy as a tool to bring unity across church divisions, the authors encourage every Christian, from the fiery Pentecostal to the disciplined Benedictine, to use this volume of songs, prayers, ideas and memories meant to be spoken aloud and shared in some kind of community.

The elements of the liturgy are organized so as to minimize page-turning, and the elements of the church calendar are explained for those unfamiliar. The guide also includes prayers for special occasions and a selection of songs ranging from the Doxology to Taize chants and African-American spirituals.

Appealing to the liturgy veteran as well as the novice, Common Prayer encourages active prayer and worship as believers join around the globe to regularly refocus their lives on God.

Adventures in Daily Prayer

Bert Ghezzi | Brazos Press

In the well-named Adventures in Daily Prayer: Experiencing the Power of God's Love, Bert Ghezzi shares his experience in daily communication with God and encourages the reader to begin his or her own adventure of meaningful prayer.

Along with relating his personal experience, Ghezzi, a Catholic charismatic Christian, also offers the testimonies of Catholic saints and evangelical Christians as they developed their prayer life. At the end of each chapter, he encourages readers to think, pray and act, as they practice a more disciplined prayer time. He invites the reader to pray the Psalms and other Scriptures as well as their own individual prayers or to meet with a group for spontaneous prayer.

Adventures in Daily Prayer is a book to be experienced, not simply read. With topics such as praying in the Spirit and relying on God, it has the potential to lead to a richer, more rewarding prayer time for anyone seeking to draw near to God. It could also serve well as a study guide for prayer groups.
