A Call To Honor

by Gilbert Morris Bobby Funderburk

Ben Logan was filled with impossible dreams of success and far-off adventure. Always one of the "have-nots" in the small class-conscious town of Liberty, Georgia, he was alternately tolerated and rejected by those that called him "poor white trash" and ridiculed his father, an often-drunk pulpwood cutter. Part of Ben's dream comes true when the daughter of the richest man in town invites him into her self-centered world. Ben is haunted by the memory of her kiss, the soft wetness of her lips against his neck, her fragrance, and her unbearably blue eyes. But when circumstances force Ben to leave Liberty and join the Navy, the memory of that kiss goes with him, erasing thoughts of the other young woman he left behind: Rachel, the thin, freckle-faced daughter of a poor Pentecostal preacher. "God told me I'm going to be your wife," Rachel told Ben on the day he left Liberty. "Are you crazy" Ben scoffed at her. "I'd never marry you in a hundred years!" But everything changed--everything--on December 7,1941, when Ben Logan found himself in Pearl Harbor, leaning into a gun mount on the deck of the USS Arizona...

Call to the Center

by Basil Pennington

Well-known retreat master and author of the bestselling Centering Prayer, Basil Pennington now demonstrates the spiritually enriching power of that ancient prayer technique when used in conjunction with scripture. Just as a centering prayer involves listening to a call, he explains, so too our encounters with the Word of God are a listening experience. This devotional book contains thirty excerpts from Matthew's Gospel with corresponding meditational essays that invite prayerful reflection through "centering." We are guided through such areas as poverty of spirit, self-alienation, the transformation of consciousness, authentic love, abandonment and "letting go," and openness to the Spirit. Equally suites for a personal at-home retreat or in a prayer-group setting, this treasury of Gospel spirituality brings even greater joy to the experience of centering prayer.
