Nancy Pearcey
Author, Speaker, Professor - Houston Baptist University
A two-time winner of the ECPA Gold Medallion Award, Nancy Pearcey is a bestselling author and speaker who serves as professor of apologetics and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University. Pearcey is editor at large of The Pearcey Report and a fellow at Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture. Previous positions include visiting scholar at Biola University’s Torrey Honors Institute, professor of worldview studies at Cairn University, and the Francis A.

A former agnostic, Pearcey has been hailed in The Economist as "America's preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual.”
Love Thy Body Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality
In Love Thy Body, best-selling author Nancy Pearcey goes beyond politically correct talking points to offer a riveting exposé of the dehumanizing secularist ethos that shapes critical moral and socio-political issues of our day.

Formerly an agnostic, Pearcey was hailed in The Economist as "America's preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual." Fearlessly and with compassion, she makes the case that secularism denigrates the body and destroys the basis for human rights.

Throughout, Pearcey sets forth a holistic and humane alternative available to all--one that offers reality-oriented solutions that embrace the dignity of the human body and provide a sustainable basis for inalienable human rights.

Now, more than ever, we need to learn to "love thy body."
Gene McGuire
Gene McGuire
Author
In 1977, Gene McGuire’s life as a free man ended. He was one of three persons involved in the late-night robbery of a bar. One of the men stabbed and killed the bar owner. Gene was sentenced to life in prison without parole, on a second-degree murder charge. He was 17 years old. Nearly ten years later, after achieving influence in the prison culture of drugs, power, money, pornography and disdain for authority, Gene humbled himself and experienced a Christ-transformation.
After submitting to years of discipleship, Gene became a spiritual leader to thousands of inmates. With no hope for release himself, Gene instead developed a fruitful, fulfilling ministry within his world of incarceration. He became an elder in the prison church, developed small groups and yard Bible studies and led others who were also without freedom to true freedom in Christ.
Then, almost 35 years into his prison sentence, came an unexpected miracle. On April 3, 2012 Presiding Judge Russell D. Shurtleff addressed the crowded Wyoming County Courtroom in Pennsylvania. He ruled that Gene had been wrongfully charged, that his life sentence was reversed and that he had already served the appropriate sentence due. Gene was released a free man — no parole.
His story is riveting — from a life sentenced to imprisonment to one filled with the power of God’s love, forgiveness and freedom, bringing hope to all.
Unshackled: From Ruin To Redemption
Gene McGuire received a life sentence for a murder he did not commit. Serving that life sentence ... he found life.

No one would have imagined such an outcome when, as a 17-year-old, he was convicted of Second Degree Murder and heard the judge speak those ominous words, "...for the rest of your natural life."

In Unshackled, McGuire takes readers from the scene of the crime--a lakeside tavern in sleepy little Lake Winola, Pennsylvania through 34 years, nine months, and 15 days of incarceration, all while serving a life sentence... for a murder he didn't commit. Glimpses of light penetrate a world of abject darkness, making Unshackled a most surprising, engaging and liberating read-a powerful and moving story of freedom, forgiveness and moving forward in life.

Walking Through Twilight: A Wife's Illness--A Philosopher's Lament
How do you continue to find God as dementia pulls your loved one into the darkness? Nothing is simple for a person suffering from dementia, and for those they love. When ordinary tasks of communication, such as using a phone, become complex, then difficult, and then impossible, isolation becomes inevitable. Helping becomes excruciating. In these pages philosopher Douglas Groothuis offers a window into his experience of caring for his wife as a rare form of dementia ravages her once-brilliant mind and eliminates her once-stellar verbal acuity. Mixing personal narrative with spiritual insight, he captures moments of lament as well as philosophical and theological reflection. Brief interludes provide poignant pictures of life inside the Groothuis household, and we meet a parade of caregivers, including a very skilled companion dog. Losses for both Doug and Becky come daily, and his questions for God multiply as he navigates the descending darkness. Here is a frank exploration of how one continues to find God in the twilight.
