So much closer than just friends. Hutch Bishop, Cam Douglas, and Sawyer Pritchard were juvenile delinquents with a reckless and wildly sexy side. But they had more in common than that. They had Regina Fallon, a wealthy but lonely girl from the right side of the tracks who formed an unusual friendship with the boys. She felt protected. She felt needed. She felt loved...for the first time in her life. By all three. Today, she's a police officer, dedicated to her badge, and wary of reigniting her relationship with the hot trio after one night of passion left her confused--and stunned--by what they wanted from her. But when a mysterious attempt is made on her life, Hutch, Cam, and Sawyer jump in to protect her again. Now, the four are forming an all-new bond. It's more exciting, more intense, and--as a killer looms in the shadows--more dangerous than ever before.

Beloved teacher Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe leads the journey through the valleys and mountains of Old Testament kings and queens, illuminating the painful confessions, the anger toward God, and the holy desires they modeled for generations to come. It's the unaltered, vulnerable grit of human experience that gives Psalms its credibility and makes it so valuable for building a real relationship with God. Writing as they would to a dear friend, the psalmists--King David and others--compose a songwriter's masterpiece through their unfathomable awe of the Creator of the universe. Out of the bottomless well of human emotion and purity of expression come both cries of pain and shouts of joy--genuine expressions which not only elevate our respect for the psalmists themselves, but also draw us into a deeper relationship with our Lord.
