New Inspirational Fiction
“Emily’s Chance” by Sharon Gillenwater (2010) Her job at the Callahan Crossing historical society is just a resume filler for Emily Rose on her way to a prestigious position in a city art museum. But cowboy and contractor Chance Callahan wants her to stay. After a devastating fire brings them together, Chance and Emily restore hidden love.

“Sweet Caroline” by Rachel Hauck (2007) When a waitress inherits the restaurant she works in, she's got to start balancing more in life than just her next food order.

 “Matthew’s Story” by Tim LaHaye (2010) Portrays the story of how Levi the tax collector became Matthew, the apostle of Jesus Christ and one of the great authors of the Gospels.

“Almost Heaven” by Chris Fabry (2010) Billy longs to use his life as an ode to God, a lyrical, beautiful bluegrass song played with a finely tuned heart. So with spare parts from a lifetime of collecting, he builds a radio station in his own home. However small his life seems, from a different perspective Billy’s song reaches far beyond the hills and hollers he calls home. Malachi is an angel sent to observe Billy. Though it is not his dream assignment, Malachi follows the man and begins to see the bigger picture of how each painful step Billy takes is a note added to a beautiful symphony that will forever change the lives of those who hear it.

 “Luke’s Story” by Tim LaHaye (2009) Recounts the life story of the author of the Gospel of Luke--from his life as a slave to his university studies as a medical student at Tarsus, from his acquaintance with Saul (Paul) of Tarsus to his ultimate discipleship and decision to write the story of Christ.
