Alone with God by John MacArthur

John MacArthur, Jr. has been a trusted pastor and teacher for over 30 years and has delivered practical insights for helping Christians grow in their own journey of faith. This amazing walk through The Lord's Prayer takes the reader down a path one verse at a time while Jesus speaks to His Father intimately, the way He desires we should pray too. These editions feature study guides for both personal and group reflection, all centered on topics and issues that matter most to believers. Christians know that spending time with God is essential to an intimate, growing relationship with Him. Yet many struggle to make prayer a consistent, dedicated part of daily life. Alone with God offers inspiration and encouragement for anyone longing for a deeper, richer time of prayer. Here John MacArthur turns to the perfect mentor on prayer, Jesus Christ, as he explores the profound insights found in the Lord's Prayer.

Come In and Cover Me by Gin Phillips

Ren Taylor, an archaeologist haunted by the near and ancient past and, with the help of the potter himself, finds three of his now rare, 12th-century Mimbres Indian pots with paintings of parrots on them. Silas, a colleague of hers, also finds remains of pots that may be linked to hers and Ren finds herself escaping her ghosts by embracing her career to find out what the pots paintings signify and what the relationship of Silas's findings are to hers. Soon enough, a romance between her and Silas develops and she discovers that in order for her to share more of herself with Silas, she must uncover more of her past ghosts. Silas and Ren's romance is portrayed effectively, revealing the omissions and commissions of budding love and how people push away those they need most in times of crisis. And like true archaeologists, they learn to pick up the broken pieces of a life and use them to rebuild something new.

Ren's brother Scott was killed in a car accident when she was only 12 years old. He was on his way to school. She is continually tormented by memories of his death, of a relationship that was never formed, conversations that never happened, family dinners that were never complete, and friendships which were avoided with those who remind her of him.
