To experience why the gospel is good news and answer life’s most foundational questions about identity, destiny, and purpose, we must understand what it means to be united to Christ. If you are a Christian, the Bible says that Christ has united his life to yours, that you are now in Christ and Christ is in you. This almost unfathomable truth is the central theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Yet few Christians today experience or enjoy this reality.

His sister and niece sought shelter under his roof when her ex vowed revenge for her court testimony so, he expects a bit of drama, but not a near kidnapping before his duffel even hits the floor! While overseas, Boone’s relied on long distance help from Savannah’s favorite teacher, Brianna Parrish. Brianna’s had his family’s back when Boone couldn’t, but now that mafia in-law Hadrian Royle is stepping up the heat, she’s put her life on the line for young Savannah. Back home, Boone learns knowing 100 ways to subdue an adversary is useless when it comes to your basic preschool princess wrangling but Brianna’s insights console his traumatized niece. She decodes parts of Boone he’s kept camouflaged from the world (& himself) almost as easily and even teaches the man with a boatload of concerns to ‘cast his cares’ on God, (which sounds just dandy, until Brianna foils the mob’s plans one time too many & puts herself in their cross-hairs.) Brianna’s too important to Boone to risk further, so he pushes away the love he’s lacked all his life in order to keep her safe. It’s the perfect plan, (if only she were the kind of gal to abandon the people she loves). When she doesn’t, Brianna’s marked for death, and Boone will trade his freedom for hers in a heartbeat——-which it just might cost them.

The two Beasts of the Revelation walked among us for nearly half a century, but no one knew them. Then millions of people simply Disappeared from the earth, and the Beasts decided to make themselves known. Can anything or anyone save the world –now that they have arisen?

Daniel Goldman is among those who have tried for the past thirteen months to ignore the world-wide Disappearance. Consistent with his life-long commitment to rigid self-determination, he has pushed the matter out of mind and become even more fanatically focused on his work as an international investor.

But on a Monday morning in late September events outside his control begin to chip away at his self-imposed ignorance. Everywhere he goes he finds himself hotly pursued and people wanting things from him he’d never contemplated. As he travels the globe negotiating the largest oil deal on the planet—and as an ancient empire gradually re-awakens—he meets and falls in love with a beautiful Israeli woman. She, together with her family and their rabbi, help Daniel discover he has never really been the “captain of his soul.” Instead, all his life unnoticed “voices” have guided him to a single decision with eternal consequences. The Biblical Apocalypse is upon them and, one way or another, Daniel is destined to play an important role in prophesied events.

Voices is the first of a series about the end times—which refer to the end of our age, not to the end of the world. The series looks to the Bible for its framework and presents a plausible picture of the end times according to a literal reading of its prophecies.

The Old Testament story of Mephibosheth, the grandson of King Saul, is summoned to the palace of the new king, David. What does David want with him in Jerusalem? Perhaps he is being summoned to his death as a potential rival to the throne. And what part does King Saul’s former servant play in all this? Prince Jonathan, the young man’s father, and king David’s best friend had died in battle many years before, the same day that the young man became crippled in both legs. Living in a place of great poverty, perhaps God was about to bless the young man far beyond his wildest dreams. Author Charles Millson brings the reader into this intriguing and exciting Bible story, as Mephibosheth witnesses King David at the height of his power and as he meets the woman who would change his life forever, Bathsheba. Palace intrigue, murders, revenge, but most of all, the blessings and mercy of God are all found in these pages. And the story poses the question: Could this young man be the inspiration for one of the scripture’s most beloved passages, Psalm 23? Included in the book are maps, a timeline, a genealogy, and a description of each main character, as well as the author’s notes on the background of the story.
