I know this is a curious title, and people who have never experienced the rejection of a son at his wife's behest won't understand it. But those who have been through this experience--whose sons have married and turned against them as if they were dirt after all the years of love and care the parents gave them-will rejoice at finding this book and knowing they aren't alone. Actually, the desertion of parents by married sons is not uncommon. Would that it were! Almost every psychologist or counselor with whom I have talked knows of several instances in which it has happened. They speak of the great sorrow and agitation of the parents, mother and father alike, who can't understand why a child has turned against them. ANNE KATHRYN KILLINGER has been a concert pianist, a college professor, a Parisian model, and the wife of a widely known clergyman. She has lived in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Birmingham, Paris, and Oxford, and now resides near Washington, DC. She is also the author of An Inner Journey to Christmas and An Inner Journey to Easter, as well as the novels, Pendleton Farm and Rachel Remembers.

When John Killinger published From Poppy, With Love, a volume of letters for the grandchildren he isn't allowed to visit, he thought he had provided all the information his grandchildren would need to understand their paternal grandparents and their feelings about things. He soon found that he missed writing to the grandchildren, however, so continued to jot down his thoughts, which became From Poppy, with Love2. This third volume, he notes, would not have been written, were it not for a Valentine card and a dream, which made such an impact that the grandchildren needed to be told. Herein are further adventures of Toby the dog, instances of great joy and tremendous sorrow, all conveyed by a master storyteller. An important part of this collection of letters addresses Grammy's discovery of and treatment for cancer in a thoughtful, loving way, and then the sad news of Grammy's death. Even readers who haven't had a problem getting to see their grandchildren will enjoy the naked sensitivity of these letters and the many subjects they touch upon. Collectively, they are about what it means to be deeply human and to truly care about one's family. Noted minister and theologian John Killinger has pastored the First Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg, Virginia, the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles, and famous Marble Collegiate Church in New York City. Following tenures at several well-known universities, his last post was as Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Samford University in Birmingham. His most recent publication is a novel, The Good Fundamentalist (Intermundia Press), and forthcoming titles include The Caregiver's Bible, and Missing Annie, books that deal with grief, sorrow, coping, and grace.

Corbin Gage can stand up to anyone . . . But his own divided house will bring him to his knees. Corbin, a longtime legal champion for the downtrodden, is slowly drinking himself into the grave. His love for “mountain water” has cost him his marriage to the godliest woman he knows, ruined his relationship with his daughter, Roxy, and reduced the business at his small Georgia law firm to a level where he can barely keep the bill collectors at bay. But it isn’t until his son, Ray, threatens to limit Corbin’s time with his grandson that Corbin begins to acknowledge he might have a problem. Despite the mess that surrounds his personal life and against the advice of everyone he knows, Corbin takes on a high-stakes tort case on behalf of two boys who have contracted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma due to an alleged chemical exposure. The defendant, a fertilizer company, is the largest employer in the area. The lawsuit becomes a tornado that sucks Corbin, Ray, and Roxy into an increasingly deadly vortex. Equally intense pressure within the family threatens to destroy, once and for all, the thin threads that connect them. Corbin must find the strength to stand up to his personal demons. Justice for two dying boys depends on it . . . his family depends on it. “Fans of John Grisham will find much to like here.” —Library Journal of The Confession

An international news story when published last year, now in paperback: A historical detective story leads to dramatic and ground-breaking revelations about the life and times of Jesus. Waiting to be rediscovered in the British Library is an ancient manuscript of the early Church, copied by an anonymous monk. The manuscript is at least 1,450 years old, possibly dating to the first century. And now, The Lost Gospel provides the first ever translation from Syriac into English of this unique document that tells the inside story of Jesus’ social, family, and political life. The Lost Gospel takes the reader on an unparalleled historical adventure through a paradigm shifting manuscript. What the authors eventually discover is as astounding as it is surprising: the confirmation of Jesus’ marriage to Mary Magdalene; the names of their two children; the towering presence of Mary Magdalene; a previously unknown plot on Jesus’ life (thirteen years prior to the crucifixion); an assassination attempt against Mary Magdalene and their children; Jesus’ connection to political figures at the highest level of the Roman Empire; and a religious movement that antedates that of Paul—the Church of Mary Magdalene. Part historical detective story, part modern adventure, The Lost Gospel reveals secrets that have been hiding in plain sight for millennia.
