Greater Than Gold

Greater Than Gold

One of America’s most heralded young divers, David Boudia twice went for Olympic gold, training obsessively and whole-heartedly for success. In his first Olympics, he failed miserably, not winning a single medal. Four years later saw a different story: he mounted the podium twice, winning both gold and bronze. The difference? In the intervening years, he’d changed the focus of his quest from seeking glory for himself to giving glory to God. In Greater Than Gold, Boudia provides a behind-the-scenes access to the rarefied world of world-class athletics while also showing readers that when they place their hope in God, they receive what they’ve been seeking all along.

Greater Than Gold

Greater Than Gold

What do you treasure? You may think of the people in your life: family, friends, or mentors. Maybe you'd add items you've collected: jewelry, photographs, souvenirs, and family heirlooms. You might also include the valuable knowledge, skills, and wisdom you've gained. Author Frances Gregory Pasch cherishes all those blessings. But in 1983, when she was fifty years old, she discovered that her most valuable treasure of all was a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The poems in Greater Than Gold: Poems That Celebrate a Relationship with God reflect the many ways you can connect with God in your daily life. This second collection of Pasch's simple yet powerful poetry includes "Nighttime Visits," "The Right View," "A Slip of the Lip," "Help Me to Be Satisfied," "What Really Counts," and "Precious, Priceless Prize." Whether your relationship with God is distant or intimate, Greater Than Gold will increase your desire to know Him better.

Greater Than Gold

Greater Than Gold

My novella, "Greater than Gold," is a short, meaningful Christmas story, written for middle grade and up readers. Parents and grandparents who buy the book, will also enjoy reading this emotional story that revolves around two troubled boys and their two Christmases-Oscar in the present day, and Omar back in biblical time. A good description would be "The Polar Express" meets the "Book of Luke." After all, if a magic train ride can restore one boy's belief in Santa Claus, why can't an angel time-travel another boy back to Bethlehem, where he discovers the peace, joy (and danger!) of the very first Christmas? Twelve-year-old Oscar Olsen is missing his soldier Dad, and he wants nothing (repeat, nothing) to do with Christmas this year! He acts out his anger on his Mom, his friend, Melissa, and even the strange new kid in church, Albert. A young, inexperienced angel, still struggling to control her wings, appears in Oscar's bedroom. She whirls him back to 2,000 years ago, where he becomes Omar, an orphaned camel-boy, riding with three learned men. Omar is a brand-new person in the traditional nativity story, and he leads the reader to smell the stable, feel the camel's hair, and hear the bleating sheep. Young readers will be drawn into the boys' two parallel stories, told in alternating chapters. Without giving away the whole story, each chapter brings both boys closer to the great paradox of life-it is in giving, that we receive. Sacrifice is at the heart of both stories. Each chapter begins with an original drawing, further enhancing the story. Lots of cute picture books for little ones fill the bookstores at Christmas, but where is the book with deeper meaning for kids in the middle grades? This novella-length book can fill that gap. "Greater than Gold" is a fast-reading adventure story of camels and kings, deserts and Dads, and a slightly inept angel. The book makes a great stocking-stuffer gift that will enrich Christmas for young readers.

The Book Of Amos

The Book Of Amos

In this commentary on the book of Amos, Daniel Carroll combines a detailed reading of the Hebrew text with attention to its historical background and current relevance. What makes this volume unique is its special attention to Amos’s literary features and what they reveal about the book’s theology and composition. Instead of reconstructing a hypothetical redactional history, this commentary offers a close reading of the canonical form against the backdrop of the eighth century BCE.
