“Mountain Top” by Robert Whitlow
From being a successful lawyer, to giving it up to follow God’s calling, Mike Andrews became a minister in a small community in North Carolina. Mike and his wife Peg were content with their lives until an elderly gentleman in the community, Sam Miller, was arrested for embezzling money. Sam was thought of as strange, as he said God spoke to him through dreams, but Sam convinced Mike to be his lawyer, and that’s where the mystery unfolds. Mike Andrews became the man of the moment, putting his faith and ministry on the line.
If you want a heart warming, faith strengthening story, “Mountain Top” is a must to read.
“No Greater Love” - an excellent fiction book by Kathi Macias
Makes your heart tender for missions in Africa.
Sixteen-year-old Chionma and her brother were orphaned when her parents were murdered in the African National Movement against apartheid. They now live and work on the Afikaner family’s farm. A white family, much supportive of apartheid tragedy, visits when Chioma and the owner’s son are attracted to each other and she is forced to join a rebel band to survive. When cultures clash in a life or death struggle, Chioma must choose between violence and revenge or forgiveness and selfless love.
Read how love and prayer can change even the most desperate of lives.
“More Than Conquerors” by Kathi Macias
“More Than Conquerors” by Kathi Macias is a moving fiction novel that could very well be happening this week. Set in Mexico it tells of Netor Rodrigus and his family as they try to carry Bibles deep into Mexico, where those with Mayan beliefs are very hostile. Hector lives and pastors a small church in Tijuana, while his mother lives in the heart of the Mayan hostilities, attempting to teach scripture to those who will listen, and ends up as a victim under very strange circumstances. “A Can’t Put it Down Book!”

“Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire” by Jim Cymbala (with Dean Merrell)
“Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire” by Jim Cymbala (with Dean Merrell) was written in 1997, but the message is very pertinent today. Rev. Cymbala has been the pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle for over forty years. When he began pasturing the struggling church with twenty members, nothing seemed to work until they began to pray. Read how God began to move and street-hardened people began to change their lives with the love of Christ. Today the church is more than ten thousand strong. The stories that you read in the book will touch your heart. I feel this can happen at Hillcrest if we will just devote time in prayer with God and devote ourselves to His mission. This book is highly recommended by several of our readers – it won’t disappoint you.
