By Ron Sandison
When Ron Sandison set out to write a helpful book for parents and their families struggling with an autism spectrum child, he decided to tell his own story. He discovered that personal stories were of no interest to publishers. In discussion with his agent, Les Stobbe, he agreed that a how-to book for parents might more easily find a publisher. He interviewed parents from all over the country, interviewed 40 experts on autism and wrote three chapters of a practical guide for parents with autistic children. Through ministry contacts, and working with his agent, he was able to interest staff at Charisma Media, where editors worked with him as he developed the rest of the book.

This true story reveals how one of society’s most discarded persons rescues a disgraced bank vice president and his family. After Kevin West is fired as vice president of his bank for making fraudulent loans, he begins working in a small grocery store he owns as he awaits imprisonment. Estranged from his wife and family, he can only cry out to God. And God’s answer is an unusual one.
Dr. Andrew Butterworth
Dr. Butterworth is a medical doctor turned pastor in South Africa. This book is “a theological and practical guide to understanding illness and approaching God for healing.” Through many inspiring stories of medical interventions and supernatural healings he shows how God’s power to heal and God’s wisdom to heal are actually two sides of the same coin.
by Andrea Jo Rodgers
After surviving an elevator accident in which rising water put her and her young son at heaven’s edge, Andrea Rodger decided to tell faith-based stories from 25 years as a rescue unit volunteer saving lives after accidents, fires, heart attacks and other events that placed children, young people and adults at heaven’s edge.
by Timothy M. Morgan
Where do you go with a seminary degree, yet with two pastoral experiences that shake your faith in God? In Chapter One the author describes his descent into disbelief and foray into the most popular atheist writers—and turned him back to Christianity. The rest of the book is a presentation of what these atheistic writers believe, with message inserts leading to the debunking of atheist positions farther into the book.

Empty Nest, What’s Next? will address the common stresses of learning to re-parent as children grow into adults. Parenting is a role that constantly grows and evolves in the same way families do, yet rarely are the challenges specific to parenting young adult children ever addressed. Empty Nest, What’s Next? will equip moms and dads to enter into this dynamic season of parenting with the tools they need to navigate it successfully (from their standpoint as well as from their young adult children’s perspective.)
