Henry and the Great Society -- $4.75
H. L. Roush, Sr. -- This amazing, captivating novel tells the story of how progress came to Henry and his wife Esther. Though they determined that progress would not change them, it did. Wrote one reader: "This story paints a lurid image of how bondage, debt, and sometimes hopelessness creep into our lives totally unawares, despite our best intentions." (Pathway Publishers)

Elizabeth Wagler -- Clare and Ruth Ann Miller are caught in today's confusing, economic wilderness. Striving to keep their heads above water and seeking relief from a hand-to-mouth income pose daily challenges. Should Ruth Ann try to find something she can do to supplement her husband's fixed income? Should they go into deep debt and start a business of their own? What is God's answer for them? (Rod & Staff Publishers)

A Time to Be Borne -- $6.00

From Wealth to Faith -- $6.95
Mollie Zook -- Prosperity is followed by disappointment, heartache, and suffering in Russia, a timely warning for Western Christianity that material wealth is fleeting and uncertain. Real security is in God. (Christian Light Publications)
