Linda Evans Shepherd in her new book, “Stress Cure book coverThe Stress Cure”  published by Revell teaches us Praying Your Way to Personal Peace.

From the Back Cover:  We live in a world filled to the brim with advice, and when it comes to dealing with stress, there’s plenty of advice to go around. Sleep more, eat better, avoid this, seek out that. But more ideas about how to cope are not necessarily what we need if we’re stressed and anxious.

What we need is a cure.The true remedy to stress, Linda Evans Shepherd says, is prayer. In this inspiring book, she shows you how to recognize God’s continual presence in your life and yield your troubles to the Prince of Peace. Through captivating stories, explorations of fascinating biblical characters, and examples of deeper-than-ever prayers, she brings within your grasp the peace that passes understanding. If you are overwhelmed by all of the urgent demands on your time, this book offers you a lifeline to true peace.

Linda Evans Shepherd knows that all of us have to deal with stress.  How do we deal with this?  Stress left unchecked can do irreparable damage and eventually will kill us. Is the answer cut back on what we schedule? Eat better? Exercise? Sleep better? While all these things are good for us and we should implement them the real answer is prayer. What we need is peace and since Jesus is the Prince of Peace the way we find peace is to talk to him about what is going on in our lives. In “The Stress Cure” Ms. Shepherd gives us twelve chapters on the things that stress us the most. Each chapter ends with a “yielding prayer” that gets us focused off that particular problem and onto God.  This is a book that you will refer back to again and again.  A great resource!

Robin Caroll  in her new book, “Hidden in the Stars book coverHidden in the Stars” Book Twenty-One in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Sophia Montgomery.

From the back cover:   A quilt holds the secret to a killer still at large—and who his next victim will be.

Following an attack that killed her mother and stole her ability to speak, 21-year-old Sophia Montgomery has no choice but to accept her estranged grandmother’s offer to return to their family home. Although detective Julian Frazier is working hard on the case, Sophia unknowingly frustrates him because her inability to speak thwarts her eyewitness evidence. The fact that Julian is undeniably attracted to Sophia doesn’t help either, so Julian hides his feelings as concern for a trauma victim and focuses instead on finding the killer.
Little do they know, the clues to solving the case may be right in front of them, displayed in Sophia’s mother’s “special” quilt design. Who will realize the secret Sophia’s unwittingly been hiding in plain sight? When the truth comes to light, will Sophia find her voice again? Or will the murderer—still at large—silence her forever?

A Home invasion from Russian speaking terrorists that torture Sophie and, eventually, kill her mother. Now the trauma has left her speechless and she cannot use her hands because of the torture. The terrorists wanted something but what? The answer is in the quilt but no one knows that either. This is a suspense mystery thriller that will keep you flipping pages as the investigation kicks into high gear trying to find out just what in the world is going on. Ms. Caroll knows how to ignite the fuse and keep it burning all the way to the end without giving anything away. And on top of everything this is a romance.

Book Review: “The Sacred Cipher” by Terry Brennan

Terry Brennan in his new book “The Sacred Cipher book coverThe Sacred Cipher” Book One in The Jerusalem Prophecies series published by Kregel Publications gives us another thriller with Tom Bohannon. History’s Greatest Secret Could Be Tomorrow’s Greatest Threat

From the back cover:  A secret room has been discovered in the chapel of the Bowery Mission. And what’s hidden inside could change the world as we know it.

When New Yorker Tom Bohannon uncovers an ancient cipher containing a dead language that has been lost in the sands of time, he doesn’t fully comprehend the danger that’s about to unfold. Though Tom and his team of ragtag scientists and historians want to decode the ancient text, there are others who don’t want the cipher revealed. And they are prepared to kill to keep it hidden.

From a market in 19th century Alexandria to an apartment in present-day New York to the tunnels beneath Jerusalem, the secret of the cipher has spanned the globe–and threatened the lives of everyone in its path. Will Tom be next?

Prophecy, intrigue, and terrorism saturate “The Sacred Cipher“.  The Cipher has been found again and a small group of men are working at trying to decipher it. However there is a group that is devoted to making sure that this never happens and sets about to eliminate them.  Tom, Doc, Joe and Sammy are not ex-CIA or Navy SEALS or anything like that, they are simply middle-aged men who have discovered something significant and want to know what it is. The Cipher takes them to Jerusalem and they work their way under The Temple Mount to find the answer. There, in addition to the original group that wants them dead, are the terrorists that want them dead and the Israelis that want them stopped because they think our group are terrorists. And the action hasn’t even begun. “The Sacred Cipher” is almost a non-stop action thriller.  Mr. Brennan has put in so many twists and turns in his story that it would make a roller coaster envious.  Tom, Doc, Joe and Sammy are wonderful characters that we care about, want to see escape the danger that they find themselves in and want them to succeed.  Terry Brennan has given us a unique thriller that will keep you on the edge of your chair as you read and flip pages as fast as possible.  I recommend this book highly and am looking forward to the next book in the series!
