But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. —Acts 20:24 (ESV) Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life,” says Billy Graham, known by many as God’s Ambassador. “I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way.” In Nearing Home this man of faith—now in his nineties—explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world. “When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice,” says the author. “Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well. “Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.” —BILLY GRAHAM

As the only child of troubled parents, author John Loomis was isolated from his peers and grew up shy, bookish, and knowing from an early age he was different in a seemingly serious and unacceptable way. Gradually, he made peace with being gay and continued his search for love, leading to many adventures, much happiness, and some heartbreak. He shares his story in the Wandering Heart trilogy. The first volume discussed his early years and young adult life. In the second volume, Loomis continued his story, describing how his battle with alcoholism and recurring depression made his path more difficult, particularly after he became involved with a handsome and gifted young man who revealed he was married, a male prostitute, the son of a well-known actress, and a heroin addict. After trying to make this relationship work, Loomis admitted defeat, as the addiction was too powerful to allow space for other human beings.In this third volume, he shares how he met another more positive partner and how they have no been happily together for more than thirty-five years. Filled with an array of photographs of people and places, Wandering heart: A Gay Man's Journey narrates how Loomis has experienced a series of rewarding relationships and additional adventures - some fantastic and others supernatural.

Motivated variously by the desire to reject consumerism, to live closer to the earth, to embrace voluntary simplicity, or to discover a more spiritual path, homesteaders have made the radical decision to go "back to the land," rejecting modern culture and amenities to live self-sufficiently and in harmony with nature. Drawing from vivid firsthand accounts as well as from rich historical material, this gracefully written study of homesteading in America from the late nineteenth century to the present examines the lives and beliefs of those who have ascribed to the homesteading philosophy, placing their experiences within the broader context of the changing meanings of nature and religion in modern American culture. Rebecca Kneale Gould investigates the lives of famous figures such as Henry David Thoreau, John Burroughs, Ralph Borsodi, Wendell Berry, and Helen and Scott Nearing, and she presents penetrating interviews with many contemporary homesteaders. She also considers homesteading as a form of dissent from consumer culture, as a departure from traditional religious life, and as a practice of environmental ethics.

Jim Sides draws upon a lifetime of experiences to dovetail stories taking place on opposite sides of the world. Through tragedy, misfortune, and international intrigue the participants discover the difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge. That difference is the great divide illustrated most critically in the matter of a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. The story opens with the hijacking of a Japanese airliner carrying a double agent to North Korea in 1969. Events in both Koreas become interspersed with the story of a spiritual transformation in the United States where the derelict Edwin Scruggs and the outwardly successful Reverend Reagan Ainsworth discover what it means to live true Christianity. The death of Scruggs brings into focus the priorities of Ainsworth, Daniels, the mission worker Betty Hodges, and the pompously religious Paul Johnson. Even after his death Edwin Scruggs serves as a guide to the way home. Tension between right and wrong in the arenas of leadership, sovereignty of nations, personal morality, and the need for worldwide understanding and brotherhood is evident; the importance of relationships is woven into the narrative from beginning to end. Nearly all of the events are based on fact, although they have been fictionalized for the telling. Jim Sides received the Bachelor of Music Education degree in 1965 from Mars Hill College, Mars Hill, NC, and holds the Master of Church Music (1967) and Doctor of Musical Arts (1982) from Southwestern Seminary, Fort Worth, TX. From 1967-1971 he served on active duty as an Air Force Administrative Officer, with assignments in Florida, South Korea, and Illinois. He has served churches in the southeastern United States for thirty years and was on college music faculties for seven years.

As imperfect beings, we continue to make mistakes during our lifetime on earth. We have all been affected by Adam's fall, but God in His Wisdom, has given us a second chance, through the sacrifice of His son Jesus who died on Calvary for our redemption. Because God has given us a second chance, He expects that we treat others in like manner. There is no need to carry the burden of guilt for our transgressions, because forgiveness is available to all of us if we so desire. But, we have to learn to forgive others, if we are to expect forgiveness for ourselves. Osmond Constance, born and educated in the West Indies, completed post High School Education in Texas, where he lives with his wife and daughter. He has worked in the Banking and Finance Industry for several decades. He is dedicated to the Lord and to his family, and is convinced that the Lord inspired him to write this book.
