Many people in todays society are passionately looking for answers to lifes difficult questions. Others are trying to connect with a God that they dont understand. The good news is that there are answers to lifes toughest questions and that people matter to God more than they could ever know or understand. People Matter to God will help people understand how valuable and important they are to God and to others. Once individuals understand how much they matter, the true adventure begins. Soon, God will show, lead, direct, and encourage them to live their lifes plan and purpose. There is also a fundamental shift that must take place where we must realize that part of our own great adventure is helping others understand that they matter to God. People Matter to God is about personal transformation for ourselves and for those that we touch in our lives each day. JACK REDMOND is founder and president of Fourth Generation Ministries. His greatest passion is to train, teach, and send people into everyday situations to share the love and power of Jesus with the world. For this to happen, individuals must first RECEIVE things like forgiveness, love, healing, wisdom, and direction from God. Then they must GROW in the understanding and power of these and other things. The next vital step is for these individuals to GIVE AWAY these things to others. When this pattern continues to repeat itself, the foundation is set for families, churches, communities, and nations to be changed. Jack is a frequent speaker at churches, conferences, and leadership trainings on the local, regional, and national level. He serves on the staff of Christ Church in Montclair, N.J., as the Director of Impact Youth Ministry. Learn more about Jack and Fourth Generation Ministries at http: //www.4thgen.org

Kate, a grieving, semi-alcoholic film student, invites an elderly woman to take part in an oral-history documentary. Jean declines, but makes her a bizarre counter-offer: if Kate can stay sober for four days, she will tell her a story. If she can stay sober beyond that, there will be another, and then another, amounting to the entire history of one family’s life. Gradually, Jean offers a heart-breaking account, not only of her own history – a lost lover, a family scarred by war – but of the American century itself; as a deep connection emerges between the women which will transform both of their lives.

Patricia Cornwell’s novels of big-city police have taken this classic genre to a new level. Now, with this #1 New York Times bestselling novel, she outdoes herself, with a wry tale of life and turmoil behind the blue wall. Chaos breaks loose when the governor of Virginia orders that speed traps be painted on all streets and highways, and warns that speeders will be caught by monitoring aircraft flying overhead. But the eccentric island of Tangier, fourteen miles off the coast of Virginia in Chesapeake Bay, responds by declaring war on its own state. Judy Hammer, newly installed as the superintendent of the Virginia State Police, and Andy Brazil, a state trooper and Hammer’s right hand and confidant, find themselves at their wits’ end as they try to protect the public from the politicians—and vice versa—in this pitch-perfect, darkly comic romp.
