Chris Ott carefully picks apart fact from fiction to show how Unknown Pleasures came into...

Becoming Mrs. Lewis allows us to see how this brilliant and passionate woman lived--and why she stole Jack's heart"--

Eldredge, Stasi

Summary: We all spend a lot of energy reaching for happiness, but we are never quite able to hang on to it. Real life happens, and our circumstances take us on an emotional rollercoaster ride. So the Bible’s call to “be joyful always” sounds almost crazy—and out of reach. But it doesn’t have to be. Joy is meant to be ours, a joy that is defiant in the face of this broken world. This joy is not simply...
