THE INDOMITABLE MR. O

Jesse Irvin Overholtzer grew up in a religious family and at the age of 12, was convicted of his own sin and sought counsel from his mother. He was told he was too young. It wasn't until Overholtzer was in college that he heard the Gospel and trusted Christ as his Saviour. Later as a pastor, he realized children can be saved while he was reading one of Charles Spurgeon's sermons and searching the Scriptures. In 1937, at the age of 60, Mr. Overholtzer began the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship, Inc.

This book is written by Norman Rohrer.
DECEMBER 7- 31

PRISONER OF HOPE

In 1954, Jesse and Nettie Miller founded the Overseas Christian Servicemen's Centers Inc. Now called Cadence International, based in Englewood, the organization fosters open-home ministry to servicemen overseas and in the United States, boasting dozens of chapters around the world. The couple settled in Denver in 1957. For the next several decades, Jesse gave inspirational speeches drawing on his POW experience and his faith, and the couple traveled around the world helping to set up new servicemen's centers. Jesse passed away on February 22, 2001, at the age of 80.

Jesse Miller called his autobiography "Prisoner of Hope." "I was a Prisoner of Hope -- not a prisoner of despair, or of adverse circumstance and unfulfilled ambitions, nor a prisoner of deep trial and daily pain and injustice. But a Prisoner of Hope," he wrote. "My great daily expectation was that of deliverance in the midst of all things being against me. As a prisoner of war, there was no physical fortress to which I could return. All safety and security was cut off from me. No human association or powerful government, no plan of escape could provide the security I needed. But there was always my fortress, my God, to whom I returned."
OCTOBER 28 - DECEMBER 4

LOVE COMES SOFTLY

A recently-widowed pioneer woman named Marty is forced into an initially loveless marriage of convenience in order to provide for her unborn child. Marty's powerful journey discovering her faith through the loving qualities of patience, trust and acceptance brings to life timeless themes of hardship, compromise, grief and hope. Though set against the backdrop of the pioneer West, her story resonates equally in today's world.

For Marty, uniting her new family in love wouldn't have been possible without a growing faith in God.
OCTOBER 2 - OCTOBER 27

AND THE WORD CAME WITH POWER

This is a great example of what God can do with a person who surrenders her life to Him! It gives the 20 year story of how Joanne Shetler gave of herself to move far away and live among the Balangao people group in the Philippines. This story tells many of her adventures along the journey. She gives account of learning the culture and language, the trials and hardships of dealing with a culture that succumbs to evil spirits, and onto the completion of God's plan for these wonderful people.

NEW GRAFT ON THE FAMILY TREE

What if the man you married truly loved the Lord but came from a family of unbelievers? And, you were going to give up your life in the city and move to the old farm homestead and live with his family? And, what if, though he wanted them to, they did not accept you? How would you give up your hurt feelings? Read how Louise settled these questions and many more. She is a wonderful example to anyone who has extended family members who do not know the Lord. Tune in for this story by Isabella Macdonald Alden.
JUNE 12 - JULY 16

HOLY WAR

In Ethel Barrett's retelling of John Bunyan's Holy War, the battle for mansoul will fill you with wonder at how little you really love God- and how much God loves you. Ethel Barrett was a prolific Christian writer, speaker and storyteller for over 30 years.

Ethel started her storytelling career as a Sunday school teacher in the early 1940's. She was asked to teach the Boys Brigade class, made up of the most unruly boys in the area. She had so much trouble keeping their attention that she began telling Bible stories using character voices and full dialog to capture their attention. That Sunday School class became a great success for God and her storytelling talent landed her some weekend radio jobs where she would tell Bible stories on her local Christian radio stations.
MAY 1 - JUNE 11

THEY CALLED HER MRS. DOC

Cassandra Wilson's marriage takes her to a small, uncultured town on the western frontier. At first she dislikes her new home, but after awhile she makes new friends and begins a more personal relationship with God. Her faith and determination see her through her struggles. This novel is written by Janette Oke and published by Baker Publishing Group. Used by permission.
MARCH 25 - APRIL 30

VINEGAR BOY

This heartfelt story places the reader alongside a disfigured little boy who is responsible to provide comfort for prisoners meeting their death by placing a sponge next to their mouths as they perish. The sponge has been soaked in vinegar and herbs. This sad, orphaned child had heard of the Messiah and hoped that this healer might see his face and heal him. The little boy never dreams that it would be Christ's face that he sees in a life-changing encounter.

Vinegar Boy is written by Alberta Hawse and used by permission of Moody Press.
