Many people think of church as a place and time where people gather, a way for ministry money to be given and spent, and a building in which people regularly meet on Sunday mornings. In this book, Jeremy Myers shows that church is more than bodies, bucks, and bricks. Church is the people of God who follow Jesus into the world, and we can be the church no matter how many people we are with, no matter the size of our church budget, and regardless of whether we have a church building or not. By abandoning our emphasis on more people, bigger budgets, and newer buildings, we may actually liberate the church to better follow Jesus into the world. This book is Volume 4 in the ´´Close Your Church for Good´´ series of books. Other volumes include: Preface: Skeleton Church Vol. 1: The Death and Resurrection of the Church Vol. 2: Put Service Back into the Church Service Vol. 3: Dying to Religion and Empire Vol. 4: Church is More than Bodies, Bucks, and Bricks Vol. 5: Cruciform Pastoral Leadership
A lonely retired sheriff watches from the sidelines as a new crop of crime fighters try desperately to come to terms with evil in their midst. Arthur Pendryll´s dark and brooding tale of psychotic evil descending on a small town is at once disturbing and profound. Warning: This audiobook contains very dark and disturbing images of horror. Adults should read carefully to determine if the content is appropriate for a child in their care. Here is a preview: Forensic evidence that Alex didn´t really understand suggested that their tormenter kept them alive and tortured them for three to five days, before finally slitting their throats and depositing the bodies somewhere remotely. Modern forensics had been available when he retired a decade and a half past, but he´d never really integrated it into his investigations. Why the hell would he need to? Outside of an occasional robbery gone wrong or a drunken husband carrying a fight with his wife too far, there really wasn´t serious crime to address until recently. Mary Ellen Allis and Thomas Harding, the prom king and queen, had disappeared on prom night. According to the papers, their friends and contemporaries at the dance said they drove off, probably to Mill Lake, right after the prom. It was a typical hang out for high school students and more than one girl had lost her virginity in the backseat of a car, while the soft sound of the lake water lapping at the shore made for romantic background noise. Alex had to suppress a smile thinking of all the kids he´d run off from Mill Lake, of the deer-in-the-headlights looks when the flashlight caught the wandering hand or the smudged lipstick, of the grateful looks when he told them to start the engine and get the hell out of the area. They hadn´t found the couple when they´d found the boy´s car. It hadn´t been found at the lake, though. Instead, they´d discovered it at a convenience store about a mile down the road. There was a small bi... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Dennis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/008267/bk_acx0_008267_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

An unforgettable depiction of the psychological impact of war by a young Iraq veteran and poet, The Yellow Birds is already being hailed as a modern classic. Everywhere John looks, he sees Murph. He flinches when cars drive past. His fingers clasp around the rifle he hasn´t held for months. Wide-eyed strangers praise him as a hero, but he can feel himself disappearing. Back home after a year in Iraq, memories swarm around him: bodies burning in the crisp morning air. Sunlight falling through branches; bullets kicking up dust; ripples on a pond wavering like plucked strings. The promise he made, to a young man´s mother, that her son would be brought home safely.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Holter Graham.

On a sweltering July morning in rural Tennessee, 50-year-old Rebecca Reynolds visits the family farm, where she literally stumbles across the mutilated bodies of her parents and younger sister, a sister who had spent life in a wheelchair after a birth fraught with complications. Rebecca´s first thought is to call 911. Her second is to find her estranged sister, Lena, who was disowned by the family years before. Her third is to wonder how long it will be before Lena is arrested for the murder of their family. As the police gather evidence pointing to Lena, the sisters turn to attorney Brian Stone. Convinced of Lena´s innocence, he agrees to take on the case. But in a family ripped apart by dysfunction, is anyone truly innocent? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michelle Babb.
