The Danger of Coming Short By Theodore Austin-Sparks
eBook (ePub): $1.99
For those who, like the New Testament writers, have a real burden and sense of responsibility for the spiritual life of God's people, one of the most heart-breaking things is the way in which so many... More > who gave promise of going right on with the Lord are caught in some side-track and turn to something other or less than He meant for them. Not necessarily to sin or to the world, but to something which, while it brings them a great deal of gratification for a time, eventually proves to be a diversion resulting in arrested spiritual growth, and they are found in a backwater, a cul-de-sac, occupied with an alternative to "the whole counsel of God.” Their “new discovery,” or “light,” or “guidance,” as they speak of it, by reason of the let-up of some tension, solution to some problems, promise of release into self-realization, and escape from pressure, when the novelty and glamour have worn off is found to have been "deceitful waters,” producing Jericho's fruits which fall before they are ripe.< Less

The Idle Warriors By Kerry Thornley
Paperback: $24.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
So what was Lee Harvey Oswald really like? Kerry Thornley should know! Between 1959 and 1961, Marine Corps Pvt. Kerry W. Thornley wrote a novel about a fellow Marine who had defected to the USSR.... More > Little did he know that his friend, Lee Harvey Oswald, would later be accused of assassinating President John F. Kennedy. Through the fictional character Johnny Shellburn, "The Idle Warriors" gives rare insight into the mind of the man who allegedly committed the most infamous crime of the century. "The Idle Warriors" is the story of a troop of Marines in the Far East - getting laid, pulling pranks, eating, drinking, and talking about life. It’s a story similar to any number of films and books from that time, both in style and content. But because the book was based on Oswald, it remains an eerie novelty, like the appearance of Fidel Castro as an extra in a Busby Berkeley film. Kerry’s introduction itself makes the book well worth reading.< Less

In the book’s Introduction you’ll meet Bob’s several “mentors” along the way—childhood friends Doug Cox (hit-songwriter) and Jim McMichael (UC-Irvine poet-professor); his songwriting-teachers Al Kasha and Buddy Kaye; and song-plugger Artie Valando, who “discovered” Christmas early-on, and tirelessly promoted his work. Then there are the songs—a 132 page typescript with hand-written lead-sheets—from Folk to Country to Blues to Jazz; plus Novelty songs that will crack you up. Christmas never sold a song—possibly because his work is way too “hip” to be commercial, then or now. What’s certain is that readers and hopefully performers will be “sold” on these songs—as well they should be.< Less
