  • When the Roll is Called a Pyonder

    Description:

    "With grace, humor, and sensitivity, Diana R. Zimmerman renders a traditional Mennonite farm family in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as seen through a child’s eyes and spoken in the hypnotic rhythms of a young girl’s voice. The spirited speaker develops a rich sense of herself and her community as she grows up in a conservative religious context where “help means spank,” and female children are reared for lives of obedience, modesty, and piety. This is a remarkably immediate work of memory and imagination—authentic, fair-minded, and unsentimental— suitable for readers of all ages."

    —Julia Spicher Kasdorf, author of Sleeping Preacher and The Body and the Book: Writing from a Mennonite Life

    "Diana R. Zimmerman has written a great American memoir. I was reminded of Huck Finn and Harriet the Spy and Jo March as I chuckled and gasped and laughed out loud through this book. You will love this little Mennonite girl, and she will lead you back to your own inner child. You will also start seeing the world through her eyes. You won't want this story to end."

    —Shirley Hershey Showalter, author of Blush: A Mennonite Girl Meets a Glittering World

  • The Testimonium

    Description:

    PONTIUS PILATE SPEAKS!

    For two thousand years the tiny chamber on the island of Capri had been sealed, hiding a scroll that could confirm the single most important claim of the Christian faith—or disprove it once and for all.

    Now an earthquake has torn that chamber open, and a team of archeologists led by Italian scholar Isabella Sforza are about to make a discovery that will shake the world of faith—and make them the target of a deadly terrorist attack.

    What did Pontius Pilate say about the trial and execution of Jesus of Nazareth?

    Make no mistake . . .

    THE TESTIMONIUM will leave you breathless!

  • Song from the Ashes

    Description:

    Attorney Landon Kingsley never fails to meet expectations or fulfill responsibilities, living a well-ordered life in his hometown of Kingsport, Tennessee. Recently engaged to the beautiful nursing student, April May, Landon’s new fiancée is everything he could want in a wife. She is devoted to her faith and family and truly loves him.

    April’s cousin, Ella Casey, has returned to Kingsport after ten years of pursuing stardom as a country music singer in Nashville. Ella’s failed career and affair with a married music producer scandalizes her in the eyes of the town, but her legal troubles drive her to Landon for help. Landon finds himself increasingly attracted to Ella and more discontent than ever with the path he has chosen for his life. Amid a firestorm of family and town gossip, Landon is tormented by his past and the complicated decision of whether to listen to God’s voice or follow his own desires.

    A retelling of Edith Wharton’s classic novel The Age of Innocence, Song from the Ashes explores the struggle with contentment in marriage and the dilemma between striving for personal happiness versus acceptance of God’s perfect plan.

  • Ecclesiastes

    Description:

    WHO does GOD use to advance His Kingdom?

    More often than not, it is through the most unlikely of individuals, or, in this case, two political nemeses: U.S. Senators Locke and Paine. With the city of Washington surrounded by an unforeseen enemy, the duo must draft a plan in order to save what few civilians remain. Moral theses are questioned, critical decisions must be made, and dire consequences are faced as the enemy draws ever closer. But in the end, as with all Biblical endings, God reveals His true intentions, and the enemy has a different identity than what one would suspect . . .

    I AM THE ENEMY
