OK, now my personal reason for loving this particular story. In 2003 during prayer, God revealed to me that He was going to pour out His wrath upon the Islamic nations, but not to kill them off and destroy them so much as drive them back to Him. You may be wondering how I can entertain such a thought. Well, what if I told you that the Seven Thunders spoken of in the Book of Revelation were these plagues? They will be severe and many will die, but the intent is not to kill them off, but drive them from Allah to the True and Living God. The Arab people are the offspring of Abraham by Ishmael. Didn't God promise to bless Abraham's seed? Didn't the household of Abraham follow after this one God, even Ishmael? So God, who is the embodiment of love, seeks to bring ALL His children back to Himself. This includes not just those who call themselves Christians, nor does it only include those born of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It also includes those born of Ishmael and of Esau. These too are His children. So the way Keith Clemons handled this topic in Mohamed's Moon did something I am unable to do, provide a story about these people and God's love for them. I hope you read it and enjoy it and pray for those caught in the web of Islam.

Fans of Pink and Jade will eat up Tangerine, the third book in the cutting-edge Shades of Style series. Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise design firm, doesn't like surprises. These days though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband-the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody at work knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille. But when the designer assigned to work with Jean on a line of men's suits shows up, her heart flips. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. Can her bruised heart become whole enough to love again? Or will she remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?
