God is already at work in your life--whether or not you recognize it. Most people are too busy to see or hear God and most Christians lack the intentional practice of listening to the stories of outsiders. In Echoing the Story, Brady Bryce provides a simple way for people to come together and tell the scattered stories of their lives in order to imagine them as part of a bigger story. His innovative, narrative approach invites curious skeptics, casual followers of God, and committed disciples of Jesus into community through listening to shared stories. If you are interested in exploring the entire story of the Bible, if you wonder how its stories fit together, or if you simply want to experience God in the ordinariness of your life, then this reliable guide can lead you in listening to the echoes of God. Part spiritual formation, part discipleship, part journey through the Bible--this guidebook is an experience in hearing the word of God in life. You can learn the skill of echoing the story through listening in this informative, experiential, and missional process. As participants in the story we can begin to imagine our everyday lives as stories oriented toward God.

In this volume are the Bible answers to many of the questions some may have about some of the teachings in the Scriptures. What is God’s desire and purpose in creation? What is the gift of God the Father? Of God the Son? Of God the Holy Spirit? What is the relationship of God, Satan, and man to one another? Who is God the Holy Spirit, and what is his work? Was Satan created? Will man’s soul/spirit exist forevermore? What is the origin, the purpose, and the destiny of man? What is sin? What is death, physical and spiritual? Who is the source of all lies and all evil, wickedness, and sin? Who is the source of all truth, logic, reason, and all that is good, righteous, and wise? What is the cause of all sorrow, suffering, pain, sickness, and death? Whose sins are washed away? Can one be pleasing to God and be a soldier, a policeman? Does God desire/approve of any person enslaving another? Is man under any law from God today? Is man shaped by nurture or nature? What must one do to be saved, have his sins forgiven, and live forevermore in heaven with the godhead three? What is the power of God that can save the soul to live forevermore in heaven? What are the “things which must shortly come to pass” “for the time is at hand” and revealed by signs to the Apostle John by Jesus Christ? (Revelation 1:1–3)

From USA Today bestselling author Ellie Ashe... A year after her acquittal on fraud charges, former financial analyst Miranda Vaughn is finally getting her life back. Not only does she have a chance for romance with her sexy neighbor, FBI Agent Jake Barnes, but she's also got a new job...one that's taking her to a vacation paradise! Perched above the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe, the Whispering Pines Resort & Spa is a local landmark and a popular destination for the rich and famous who are stressed out from being rich and famous. And down on the water’s edge is the Lucky Penny Casino—an abandoned shell of a once-stylish casino. Max Emmerson, the owner of the Whispering Pines Resort, used to own the Lucky Penny, and he wants it back. Miranda’s job is to get Max’s finances in order so he can borrow the money to buy the casino, and make sure nothing jeopardizes his gaming license. Easy, right? But the nice boring accounting job spirals out of control with the addition of a Hollywood film crew, an underground gambling ring, and Jake going undercover at the resort as a newlywed—with another woman. As Miranda and Jake each dive into their investigations, they can’t deny their growing feelings for each other. But it’s more important than ever that they keep their attraction hidden. Especially since someone at the resort is watching them very closely, and is willing to do just about anything to keep them from uncovering the truth.
