A Belladonna Arms Novel Barney Teegarden knows what it’s like to be alone. He knows what it’s like to have a romantic heart, yet no love in his life to unleash the romance on. With the help of a friend, he acquires a lease in a seedy apartment building perched high on a hill in downtown San Diego. The Belladonna Arms is not only filled with the quirkiest cast of characters imaginable, it is also famous for sprinkling love dust on even the loneliest of the lovelorn. At the Arms, Barney finds friendship, acceptance, and an adopted family that lightens his lonely life. Hell, he even finds a cat. But still true love eludes him. When his drag queen landlord, Arthur, takes it into his head to rescue a homeless former tenant, he enlists Barney’s help. It is Barney who shows this lost soul how to trust again―and in return Barney discovers love for the first time in his life. It’s funny how even the hardest battles can be fought and won with laughter, hugs, friends, plus a little faith in the goodness of others. All it takes to begin the healing is the simple act of coming back.

In this arrestingly candid memoir, which he wrote himself, world-class cyclist, Tour de France stage winner, and time trial specialist David Millar offers a vivid portrait of his life in professional cycling—including his soul-searing detour into performance-enhancing drugs, dramatic arrest and two-year ban, and his ultimate decision to return to the sport he loves to race clean.WORLD-CLASS CYCLIST, Tour de France stage winner, and time trial specialist David Millar offers a vivid portrait of his life in professional cycling—including his soul-searing detour into performance-enhancing drugs, his dramatic arrest and two-year ban, and his ultimate decision to return to the sport he loves to race clean—in this arrestingly candid memoir, which he wrote himself. As a young Scottish expat living in Hong Kong with his father after his parents’ divorce, Millar showed early promise with mountain biking and BMX. Two wise local cyclists took him under their wings, encouraging him to concentrate on road racing. Millar proved a ready convert. Racing Through the Dark offers the winning account of his climb through the ranks—first as an amateur and then as a pro, riding for the French team Cofidis. Among his early triumphs were several stage wins in the Tour de France. From the moment Millar turned pro, he began to see hints of the unethical measures that many— maybe most—of the other pros were taking in order to race at the very tops of their games . . . and beyond. At first, he felt that he was immune to temptation, that he could win clean. But the ugly pervasiveness of performance-enhancing drugs and the seemingly universal attitude that condoned it began to corrode his willpower. Racing Through the Dark details his eventual capitulation, his subsequent arrest and two-year ban from cycling, and his remarkable comeback as a clean cyclist who is now doing his utmost to keep performance-enhancing drugs out of the sport he so loves. Filled with thrilling descriptions of the world’s most spectacular courses, Racing Through the Dark captures the pure joy of cycling and includes some of the most vivid accounts of racing ever written by a true insider.

In his first book release, respected worship leader and songwriter Matt Redman writes: "The revelation of God is the fuel for the fire of our worship. And there is always more fuel for the fire. When we open the eyes of our heart, God's revelation comes flying at us from so many different angles." Open the eyes of your heart and let the gut-level message of The Unquenchable Worshipper cause you, like martyred missionary Jim Elliot, to say, "Saturate me with the oil of Thy Spirit, that I may be aflame.

In the past thirty years or so, interest in Bible prophecy has been on the rise. Many theologians and laymen believe that the return of Jesus is close. Our greatest modern day Evangelist (now retired), the great Dr. Billy Graham, has commented that if God did not return soon, He would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. The late Dr. John Walvoord, known as the "Dean of Prophecy" and presently in the presence of Jesus, believed that this generation has more reason to expect the return of Christ. God has ALWAYS warned before sending judgment. God called John the Baptist as a prophet to herald in the Lamb of God and He is using another to announce His soon return. Though we are told by Jesus that we will not know the day or hour (Matthew 24:36), nowhere in Scripture does it indicate that we will not know when it is close. In fact, in Hebrews 10:25 we are admonished to be looking for the Day of the Lord (when God will pour out His wrath on the world). Jesus told Israel to look for signs of His return bodily to earth and they will know that it is near, even at the doors (Matthew 24:33). They will know and God wants us to know. Find out the Truth from this book, "Jesus Really Is Coming Back.....Soon!", written by a true modern day Prophet. To God Be The Glory!
