We had to do it. We had to reprint this book. Rarely has a book had such an impact on so many of us here at Ignatius Press. It is one of the most powerful and moving books we have come across. If you can only buy one book this season, this must be the one. Here is the astonishing true story of the harrowing experiences of a young German seminarian drafted into Hitler's dreaded SS at the onset of World War II. Without betraying his Christian ideals, against all odds, and in the face of Evil, Gereon Goldmann was able to complete his priestly training, be ordained, and secretly minister to German Catholic soldiers and innocent civilian victims caught up in the horrors of war. How it all came to pass will astound you. Father Goldmann tells of his own incredible experiences of the trials of war, his many escapes from almost certain death, and the diabolical persecution that he and his fellow Catholic soldiers encountered on account of their faith. What emerges is an extraordinary witness to the workings of Divine Providence and the undying power of love, prayer, faith, and sacrifice. Illustrated
The Pastoral Ministry of Angels: Yesterday, Today, and for Heaven
Author: Jonathan Macy
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Historically, angels have been viewed as either disconnected objects of specultive investigation, or as mystifying beings mysteriously influencing our lives. However, this is not how the Bible describes them. Scripture, in sober and straightforward terms, simply describes what angels do. It is a practical depiction, a pastoral presentation. We see messages of encouragement, revelation, and guidance; we see judgment and correction; we see strengthening, we see journeying; we see prayer and worship. The biblical focus concerning angels is on ministry to the people of God. Angels are one way that God intervenes in human affairs in response to pastoral concerns or problems. Using only Scripture and a classic model of pastoral theology as the framework, this book shows practically how angels are employed by God to bless His church and peopleas His servant ministers who glorify Him alone.
Kate is lost and broken after her sister’s death. Now she is fifteen years old and trying to find her way through the guilt and hurt that surrounded that horrible day. Nothing changes until she walks through a door that leads her to another world. The world in which she entered is cruel. Voices that whisper in the air confirm her worst fears and thoughts. They attack her and deceive her. Soon Kate learns that voices belong to creatures, and that the creatures are more than just beings. They are in fact concepts in living forms: lies, guilt, and hate. Just as Kate starts to believe that all hope is lost, she hears another gentle voice; a voice full of love and promise. Finally Kate asks for help and her journey begins. Viktor (who portrays Jesus) guides Kate into Orus, a world full of other creatures. Along the way Kate meets redemption and grace and love along with many other beings that show her the way of truth.
If it had not been for the Lord who was on my side, where would I be. Jesus came into my life and restored me. In the Shadow of His Wings is a collection of poems that God spoke in my spirit as I journey through newness of life. These poems were conceived through much prayer, fasting, dedication, and love for the most High God. In the Shadow of His Wings truly ministers to my spirit and I pray that it does the same for you. Growing up I have always had a passion for poetry, but it wasn’t until God touched my soul, that I realized the true purpose for this gift. God blessed me with this gift to perform a service to him; that service is to declare his word, be a witness unto him, to edify and encourage the body of Christ, to draw many hearts to Jesus and to glorify his holy name. Throughout our walk with God we encounter trials, tests, and tribulations, but God lets us know to be of good cheer, for he has overcome the world. In the Shadow of His Wings contain golden nuggets to remind us that nothing shall separate us from the love of Christ and we must walk this walk by faith, knowing that greater is our reward in Heaven. This book consists of many personal and intimate encounters with Jesus that I share with you, from my heart to yours; this is my testimony.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Mr. Cobb does an exceptional job in simplifying the complexity of lifes lessons. From personal experiences, frequent spiritual awakenings, quick wittedness and shrewdness throughout his writing. This book has much to acclaim it by way of worth, quality and depth. It shows that Mr. Cobb was consistent in communicating details having more to offer than merely dry composed words. It shows deep feelings, emotions and points of view in a rhythmic form. His choice of words is not to make them rhyme but to freely flow. It is with this in mind that I invite you to read and enjoy this awesome publication by Mr. Larry Duce Cobb. Get comfortable, prepare yourself for a pleasurable feast for the mind and learn from lifes experiences as coming from the words of this great author/poet/survivor and man of God. I ask, waiting for an answer, I knock, praying its heard, I seek, hoping to find the promises of God on time Saundra Owens
For Love of God, Patriotism, and All Things Four-Legged could also have been the title of this book. Everything written in this book is true. It is a story of God's great love and grace in one person's life. This is also a story of God's great blessings--of Christian parents who took the time to teach honest values and virtues to their children. It is a story of great love for family, for America, and for friends. The story includes some amazing horses and one incredible dog. It is the story of loss, grief, and of life's lessons learned. Above all, I wrote it in gratitude to the good Lord for allowing me to live out my life in the shadow of His wings.
