The Light in the Woods: An Unforgettable Christmas Tale

Before loose lips sank ships. Before salvage drives. Before a little man started a great big war, there was Santa Claus.

 

Set during World War II, Raymond Kozak, a once-happy and carefree ten-year-old, turns disheartened and angry as he approaches his first Christmas after the death of his father. Ray’s mother implores Oscar Taglieber, a local clock maker, to let Ray work for him after school to keep him distracted. Oscar begrudgingly accepts and the two, along with Ray’s neighbor Olive, begin the task of making toys that local children requested in their letters to Santa Claus. As the three work together a friendship grows. But so does Ray’s curiosity. Because as soon as he starts working for Oscar he notices a buck appear around the neighborhood. A buck that does not run from him. A buck with a white star on its forehead.

 

Ray becomes determined to get to the bottom of the odd events that begin to happen on his street. Between the curious objects Ray stumbles across in Oscar’s house (a sled in the cellar, a red suit in the closet), the strange streaks of light that appear in the night sky, and the same eight deer that lurk in his backyard at night, Ray and Olive are on a mission to figure out just who they are working for and who, or what, is the cause of that light in the woods.

 

Bringing Santa Claus out of the North Pole, Christ out of the heavens, and flying reindeer out of the night sky and into the everyday life of a hopeless child, The Light in the Woods is a Christmas tale that will remain in your heart all year long.

For readers of Richard Paul Evans and Melody Carlson comes JACOB'S BELL, a heartwarming Christmas story about how an unlikely friendship between an old man and a little girl saved a family.

Sometimes the road to forgiveness and restoration can be a rocky one. Set in Chicago and Baltimore in 1944 with flashbacks to the 1920s, JACOB'S BELL follows Jacob MacCallum on his arduous journey to redemption.
At one time, Jacob had it all: wealth, a wonderful family and a position as one of the most respected businessmen in Chicago. Then he made some bad decisions and all that changed. For the past twenty years he lived in an alcohol-induced haze, riddled with guilt for the dreadful things he had done to his family and his role in the untimely death of his wife. Estranged from his children and penniless, he was in and out of jail, on the street and jumping freight trains for transportation. Realizing he needed a drastic change, Jacob embarked on a journey to find his children, seek their forgiveness, and restore his relationship with them. Befriended by a pastor at a Salvation Army mission, he struggled to transform his life. Yet finally he overcame his demons, but not without a fair number of setbacks. Jacob became a Salvation Army Bell Ringer at Christmastime. While ringing his bell on a street corner one snowy day, he met a young girl who, through a series of strange coincidences, led him back to his children and facilitated Jacob's forgiveness just in time for Christmas.
Author John Snyder pens a story of love, hardship, and reconciliation that will leave readers filled with Christmas joy.

Imagine if you discovered a treasure chest in which were hidden ancient mysteries, revelations from heaven, secrets of the ages, the answers to man’s most enduring, age-old questions, and the hidden keys that can transform your life to joy, success, and blessing…This is The Book of Mysteries.

Jonathan Cahn, who caused a national and international stir with the New York Times best-seller The Harbinger and then The Mystery of the Shemitah, now brings us a treasure chest inside of which are contained some of the greatest mysteries of all time. The reader will discover life-transforming secrets, mind-blowing realities, and heart-changing revelations in such mysteries as the Face in the Waters, the Leper King, the Land of Gezarah, the Secret of the Third Prince, the House of Spirits, the Mystery of the Rains, How to Alter Your Past, the Second Scroll, the Similitude, the Mystery of the Eighth Day, and much more. The Book of Mysteries takes the readers on a journey of divine revelation through ancient Scriptures, the laws of Creation, the deep of God’s Word, the hidden streams of history, the most important keys of spiritual truth, end-time mysteries, and the secrets of life.

The Book of Mysteries opens up with a traveler and his encounter with a man known only as “the teacher.” The teacher takes him an on odyssey through desert mountains, valleys, gardens and plains, encounters with nomadic tent dwellers, caverns and ancient ruins, chambers of scrolls and vessels, and more. The reader is taken along to partake in the journey and in all the teachings and revelations. The traveler keeps a journal in which he writes down each of the mysteries given to him by the teacher in his one-year odyssey—365 different mysteries—one for each day of the year. Thus, on top of everything else, The Book of Mysteries is also a daily devotional unlike any other. And each mystery contains a special mission for each day of the year, a mission that takes the revelation and applies it to reality for a life-changing journey.
