God’s Angels: His Ministering Spirits is clearly the work of a mature, highly educated and experienced author. Dr. Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) produced the book toward the end of his life, after he had given strong leadership in church matters, founded a university and also a Christian political party, and served as Prime Minister of the Netherlands. His extensive writing in the areas of theology and the Christian life-view prepared him finally to focus on the subject of angels. It was a privilege and a challenge for me to make this highly significant book available to the English speaking people. The book pursues all sorts of facets in the life of angels. From when they were created to what their task really entails. The falling into sin of a large number of angels is important for the human race. Why is there a Satan? Do people have a guardian angel? Will the angels be there when we die? Many questions are answered. This book will make the readers think and become enriched with greater Biblical and practical knowledge.

High school senior Taylor Pope is infatuated with Mia Peltz, an all-American girl and aspiring model that grew up in his home town of Chestnut Hill. Humiliated and betrayed by the events that unfolded at a school dance, Taylor gets behind the wheel of his sports car and, in a driving frenzy, crashes at high speed in an accident that should have ended his life.

Taylor survives the crash without so much as a scratch, however, having regained consciousness, he now finds himself in another dimension. A world very different from his own, and governed by people known as Zhaarians. He has unintentionally crossed into a world that does not wish its existence to be known, and while Taylor’s needs are met, the decision awaits on whether to return him back to his home. While stranded in this strange dimension, he meets a young Zhaarian called Una, who carries a striking resemblance to Mia. Despite romance between them being forbidden, their attraction for one another is instant and they soon fall in love.

However, Taylor’s troubles have only just started, and while his own life hangs in the balance, he must discover a way of stopping those whose means are to destroy Earth, and ultimately end all existence in the first dimension.

Dual is an unconventional love story that simply knows no bounds, where the concept of true love, and the struggle to keep it, is very much real.

The Reluctant Psychic: A Spiritual Journey in Sedona

Inspired by the first-hand experiences of author Michelle Hammer, the fictionalized story of Anna compels readers from all walks of life to cultivate their own unique spiritual capacities.

Anna’s profound journey begins after a car accident while out on a solitary road trip. As Anna’s healing progresses, her innate curiosity and burgeoning psychic abilities are nurtured by her new group of friends. On a journey to Sedona, they meditate at a variety of energy vortexes while piecing together small but significant clues that hint at a destiny which transcends linear perceptions of space and time. By doing so, the group becomes a conduit for a powerful message from the spirit world. It is a message that not only speaks to each individual, but to the whole of humanity, warning all who are willing to listen that unless there is a collective shift in consciousness, humanity will be lost on a runaway path to destruction.

A Force of Nature

Part ghost story, part treasure hunt, part romance, A Force of Nature is all entertainment!!

Do you believe in Fate? Would you recognize it if it was happening to you? Then you'll want to meet Toronto PR guru Claire Chandler. She grew up convinced greatness awaited her. Why else had she survived a series of bizarre childhood tragedies? Yet she doesn't see what's coming when she journeys north on a long weekend in August to Bay Harbour, a post-card pretty tourist town on the edge of Canada's popular Georgian Bay vacationlands. She thinks she's there to reconnect with a former mentor. But Chandler's chilling affinity for the “unnatural and unexplained”, a macabre “gift” that once made her a freak of nature to classmates, will make her a force of Nature. Shadowed by a ghostly white wolf and haunted by the victims of a long-dead killer, she'll discover a startling new ending to a fifty year-old mystery. She'll also discover romance with Tom Katz, an affable, treasure-hunting bush pilot with a reputation for living up to his name. They're an unlikely pair and Chandler thinks it's just a summer fling. Instead, a series of white-knuckle adventures will bring them to a time, a place and a choice that will forever link their lives.

A debut novel by a practised writer, A Force of Nature puts a “crisp, intelligent and engaging” spin on the mystery genre.

Battlegrounds: America's War in Education and Finance: A View from the Front Lines

The reason why I have written this book is due to the fact that America’s economic classes (lower, middle and upper), as well as America’s most important institution education, focuses and revolves around the economic philosophy of capitalism. The economic social structure and educational structure in America was created due to the growth of industrialization in this country. The book focuses heavily on economics and its role in the American educational system. There are probably a few people who are wondering why a teacher in America would write a book that talks about America’s economic system due to the fact that I am not a college professor or a teacher of economics. It is my hope that everyone enjoys the reading. I also hope that my thoughts that I have written are taken seriously.

<b>5 Stars – A must read for anyone who cares about our children’s future.</b>

Mr. Harris has brought the current state of our crumbling education system to the forefront and I whole heartedly applaud his efforts. <i>Battle Grounds</i> is a gripping piece that tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about our education system and government. What I love about this book is that author and educator Todney Harris also offers solutions about how to repair our system and save our children’s futures.

The Keyhole: The Adventures of Toots the Cat

Amanda can actually see a picture of each memory when she looks through the keyhole. It's like looking at the TV, but there is no sound. Amanda asks her grandfather to explain each event. The keyhole opens up a treasure trove of adventure stories about a young Canadian boy and a cat, growing up during the depression years of the 30's.

The stories are narrated in a series of conversations between Amanda and her grandfather. McCavour blends a series of life learning experiences and an accurate description of cat behavior into an exciting adventure for readers and cat lovers of all ages.

Out of the Shadows, the Life of a CSE Canadian Intelligence Officer

Canadian, US, and Soviet/Russian spy operations that began in the Arctic in the 1930s continue to this day.

In this first-hand account as an intelligence officer with the Communications Security Establishment at the Canadian Department of National Defense, author Ronald Lawruk describes the Cold War years with an insider’s perspective. The nature of his work required him to be highly secretive—he could not share a whiff of it to anyone, even his wife. Even so, there are plenty of laughs amid tense tales of real-life war games in the frozen Arctic and briefings from high level government officials. From Ottawa to Washington to Moscow, Out of the Shadows: The Life of a CSE Canadian Intelligence Officer will change the way you think about Canadian intelligence and heighten your awareness of current Arctic sovereignty issues.

Ignite Your Beacon: Uncover Truth, Live With Intention, and Contribute Your Gifts to the World

Ignite Your Beacon is about uncovering truth, living with intention, and contributing your gifts to the world. It is "Tony Robbins meets Rich Mullins." It is a combination of a self-help and others-help book, an empowerment tool seeking to help individuals uncover potentially long-neglected tools and skills that were contained since birth, and encourage them to employ these skills in new and powerful ways.

The book talks about dissembling fear one brick at a time, employing the deep drives that have composed the threads of your spirit from your youth, approaching life with courage on a daily basis, and experiencing the synergistic existence that is a natural by-product of helping others to do all of the above, as well.

Most non-fiction books cover ground in relation to a handful of topics, but they may not show how these topics are connected, let alone why they matter to the reader, and what to do about it. Ignite Your Beacon is a book aimed at solving this problem. It is a book that not only informs, but equips the reader to render themselves 180 degrees within the most valuable and actionable arenas of life.

This book is a great read for anyone that is interested in motivational non-fiction and is a fan of Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Rich Mullins, Dale Partridge, Zig Ziglar, Dale Carnegie, Dale Partridge, Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump, Malcolm Gladwell and Nick Vujicic.

Back To Hope

Seventeen year-old Larry Kinsella knows nothing of life beyond the city of Vancouver and when he first meets Benita Pigeon, a member of the Carrier Nation, he is drawn to her by their differences. Their brief, often tumultuous, relationship is brought to a calamitous end by an unwanted pregnancy and by Larry’s response to it. Consumed by anger and bitterness, Benita flees to her ancestral home where she struggles to adjust to a traditional way of life, while Larry, driven by guilt and remorse, enters the seminary and becomes a Catholic priest.

But the past lays claim to both of them and when they meet again it is under circumstances where they must struggle to redeem themselves and to find their true identity.

Set in the middle of the last century against a backdrop of northern British Columbia and the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, “Back To Hope” is a story that often touches on violence, conflict, poverty, and despair. But it is also a meditation on family and belonging, on faith, and above all, on hope.

The Secret of Half Moon Bay

Charlie McCabe and his best friend Lonnie Horowitz had often talked about scuba diving.

Now with enough money in their accounts to cover more than expenses, the decision was made. After graduating from their course, the two young men meet an American couple that are just as enthusiastic about diving as they are. Meeting up at the parking lot for access to the beaches at Half Moon Bay and the south end of Wreck Bay, they soon find that someone has a grudge. Why, they don’t know, but after the second incident happens, they decide to find out.

After they start diving in the bay, they are amazed at their discovery of parts of a sailboat mast. Investigating further they find old boards buried a couple of feet under the mud, on the bottom of the bay. Using the time between tides, they dig at the mud, until they find a hatchway. The excitement grows as they prepare to dive as a group, and discover what may be found inside the old wrecked hull.

Speaking Finch: Collected Poems

These are works of nature that wind us through the year on a river of changing seasons, and around every turn, the reader sees the art of the beaver, hears the descending song of the canyon wren, and is surprised by personal dragons. Here is poetry that embraces drunken Frenchmen and childhood longings; some remain in the ether, some are realized. From death, basketball, and the long arm of fantasy from someone who has forgotten his meds, straightforward descriptions of zoological specimens morph into something fresh. These poems are the adventures of a varied life where the therapist is a guitar, mountain lions and street folk respected comrades, and a canoe the better office.
