Every Day Was Special

by William G. Tapply

"It's been a lifelong, ever-expanding journey, with many big ?sh and faraway waters and dramatic moments . . . and yet I don't think any of those moments or any of those places or ?sh has thrilled me any more than seeing the twitch of my ?y line where it entered the muddy waters of my backyard pond . . ." In this collection of ?y-?shing stories from acclaimed novelist and outdoor writer William G. Tapply, the natural appeal of ?y ?shing comes to life. Each story in Every Day Was Special was previously published in Tapply's back-page column, "Reading the Currents" in American Angler, or in Gray's Sporting Journal, or in Field & Stream. From "Dam It" to "First Light" to "When Trout Get Antsy," these thirty re-readable pieces are unique in their own ways, and yet, all are classic Tapply. These writings serve as testament to the thrill of ?shing, the inimitable energy of casting at daybreak, and the innocence of streamside summers.

Every Fear

And time is running out, because whoever took little Dylan Colson is more dangerous than anyone could ever imagine.

Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God's Work

by Timothy Keller Katherine Leary Alsdorf

New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller shows how God calls each of us to express meaning and purpose through our work and careers. In a work world that is increasingly competitive and insecure, people often have nagging questions: Why am I doing this work? Why is it so hard? And is there anything I can do about it? Tim Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God as well as The Skeptical Student in the Encounters with Jesus ebook series, and many others, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now he puts his insights into a book for readers everywhere, giving biblical perspectives on such pressing questions as: * What is the purpose of work? * How can I find meaning and serve customers in a cutthroat, bottom-line-oriented workplace? * How can I use my skills in a vocation that has meaning and purpose? * Can I stay true to my values and still advance in my field? * How do I make the difficult choices that must be made in the course of a successful career? With deep insight and often surprising advice, Keller shows readers that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about our work. In fact, the Christian view of work--that we work to serve others, not ourselves--can provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship--not just of self-interest. .

Every Human Being Is a Seeker of Truth
