In the midst of her darkest days, Bunmi began writing down her deepest fears, hopes, dreams, and frustrations with God in the form of letters. The result of Bunmi’s soul-searching journey is Dear God, a collection of funny, heartbreaking, and deeply insightful prayers that put words to the emotions we all feel as we grapple with this broken world and search for divine love.
With the same gutsy and poetic honesty that has already charmed readers around the world, Bunmi now shares these moving, intimate conversations with God–prayers and poems that chart her story of reconnecting with the God she loved, lost, and found once again.
Dear God catalogs what we’re all thinking as we work out our personal relationships with God. These candid field notes will stir your heart and make you laugh out loud with Bunmi’s self-awareness and profound insight into the spiritual journeys we’re all doing our best to navigate.
Join Bunmi as she travels through those all-too-familiar emotions–doubt, anger, joy, desperation, love, loneliness, and gratefulness–that humanity has always wrestled with. Wittily fresh and stunningly relatable, she exquisitely shares the painfully honest questions she’s asked along the way, including:
– God, what is holiness?
– God, how can it be worth it to love life when it could slip away at any moment?
– God, what do I do when forgiveness feels impossible?
– God, I know you love me, but do you like me?
This poignant collection of prayers is a timely reminder that even when we wander, God never leaves our side.
Three acclaimed Christian historical fiction authors’ romantic and intriguing stories will delight inspirational readers. Romance and history across the years make this collection a perfect fit for fans of timeless love stories.
Hunter’s “A Search for Refuge” tells of solicitor Nash Banfield, hiding from society in a market town, and Lady Margaretta Fortescue, on the run from a mysterious threat and in desperate need of refuge. Camden’s “Summer of Dreams” follows the whip-smart daughter of an army general, determined never to marry a man in uniform, and a charismatic West Point cadet just as determined to change her mind. Dykes’s “Up from the Sea” follows the romance between the daughter of a Southern lumber baron who finds herself out of her element in coastal Maine and the humble local lobsterman and lumberjack far below her station.
A critically acclaimed #1 New York Times bestseller with more than one million copies in print and a major motion picture! Gritty with pain, betrayal, and brutality, this incredible true story also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.
Meet Denver, raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana until he escaped the “Man” in the 1960’s by hopping a train. Untrusting, uneducated, and violent, he spends 18 years on the streets of Dallas and Fort Worth.
Meet Ron Hall, a self-made millionaire in the world of high-priced deals—an international arts dealer who moves between upscale New York galleries and celebrities.
It seems unlikely that these two men would meet under normal circumstances, but when Deborah Hall, Ron’s wife, meets Denver, she sees him through God’s eyes of compassion. When Deborah is diagnosed with cancer, she charges Ron with the mission of helping Denver.
From this request, an extraordinary friendship forms between Denver and Ron, changing them both forever. A tale told in two unique voices, Same Kind of Different as Me weaves two completely different life experiences into one common journey. There is pain and laughter, doubt and tears, and in the end a triumphal story that readers will never forget.
