Bigger Than Business: Inspiring Stories That Prove We Can Live God’s Purpose Through Work—And Succeed!

Fort Worth, TX, In a society where workforces—especially executives—are encouraged to keep their professional lives and spiritual lives separate, Jeff Holler’s Bigger Than Business: Real-World Stories of Business Owners Living Their Purpose is a thought-provoking testimonial to the power of a faith-driven existence—even in the boardroom.

Bigger Than Business shares transparent, true-life stories of Christian entrepreneurs living out their God-created purposes in their unique business settings. Between the covers of Bigger Than Business, readers will meet eight faithful business owners from six continents who share their remarkable stories, including:

• A US couple who rose above a personal tragedy and through their business set a transformative example for all;
• An inspiring Australian business owner who, with God’s help, transformed a business capable of serving one individual at a time into one poised to serve hundreds of thousands around the globe;
• A Brazilian with a Japanese heritage who was fired by his own family, yet returned to help build and continue the family business; and
• An amazing woman who barely survived the genocide in Rwanda and who now heals broken hearts through her small sewing cooperative.

At the end of each chapter are insightful questions to help readers understand ways in which they can live their God-given purposes in and through their own businesses. Bigger Than Business gives readers the know-how and the confidence to pursue what they value and to commit more passionately to pursuing a greater purpose.

Author Jeff Holler is a speaker and founder of The Capital Chart Room LTD, serving some of the most respected and successful entrepreneurs in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A certified financial planner, Jeff holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Florida State University. He leads an adult Bible study class, and he and his wife, Charlsey, commit their time, talent, gifts and service to several ministries. They have two wonderful daughters with precious families of their own. Jeff and Charlsey live in Fort Worth, Texas.

Blood in the Desert: Only The Unwavering Power Of Love And Faith Can Overcome Persecution

Blood in the Desert: Only The Unwavering Power Of Love And Faith Can Overcome Persecution

Dallas, TX ― Religious persecution was an all-too cruel reality for early Christians in 294 A.D. The Roman Empire searched relentlessly for believers, torturing and killing some and selling others into slavery. It was a dark time for Miriam, an orphaned young woman now enslaved by a brutal Roman officer named Quintus. Miriam would endure unthinkable emotional and physical torture before being forced to bear the officer’s child, a heartache made worse when the baby, Philip, is born blind. In a fit of rage, the ruthless Quintus drives mother and child apart, casting them on perilous, separate paths.

C. Douglas Gordon’s debut novel, Blood in the Desert, follows Miriam and Philip as they each drift aimlessly toward their fate. In this portrait of the enduring supernatural power of love and faith in perilous times, the mysterious wolf Lupa appears, leading Miriam to her new destiny, while Philip is taken in by nomadic traders. Their dramatic journeys through the treacherous devotions of early Christendom illuminate the risks and rewards of faith in the years before Emperor Constantine found a powerful ally in Yesua and changed the course of history. Until then, all the things modern Christians take for granted — institutions, buildings, meeting spaces and even the gathered texts that make up the New Testament — were nonexistent for hundreds of years following the death and resurrection of Christ.

Dallas businessman C. Douglas Gordon has translated his organizational and management skills to the task of bringing detail-oriented research to his novels. Inspired by his older brother’s deep faith, Doug honors his memory by exploring the roots of Christianity from its earliest appearances in history and through its years of torment and challenge.

Doug’s series, You Left in Me the Faith, seeks to shed light on the formative period that gave birth to the Church as we know it today. Years of effort have produced an exciting first novel, Blood in the Desert. Doug creates fictional characters whose lives interact with and are impacted by real historical events and figures of the day. Readers can’t help but be amazed that Christianity survived at all. The second novel in the series, The Twelve Coins, is currently in progress.

The Final Day: A Novel (A John Matherson Novel) by [Forstchen, William R.]

The Final Day by New York Times best-selling author William R. Forstchen gives a chilling glimpse into an America ripped apart by both an EMP attack and a government hell bent on surrendering parts of the nation to foreign countries.

With our nation still at odds over the result of the presidential election, military historian Bill Forstchen offers something for both sides of the political aisle in a riveting plot that has citizens united in an attempt to preserve a beloved America. While The Final Day is third in the riveting John Matherson series, the first has already been optioned for a movie by Warner Brothers.

Bill Forstchen makes a dynamic guest. Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview with him, or forward a copy of the book for a review from you. If you’d like to run this story, I’d be happy to send you .jpgs of the author and the book cover. Thank you.

The Final Day: When Love Of Country Becomes The Driving Force That Unites All Citizens Against Tyranny

“Like its two predecessors in the Matherson series, this new novel entertainingly blends folksy and sophisticated, small-town nostalgia and sharp futurism…a thoughtfully rendered, richly detailed investigation into the ‘What if.'”
—Kirkus Reviews, on The Final Day

Black Mountain, NC – Fans of John Matherson and his fierce brand of patriotism were thrilled when The Final Day, third in the series by New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen, was recently released by Forge Books.

Months before publication, Forstchen’s One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read. Film rights to that novel have already been optioned by Warner Bros. The riveting story of our nation’s struggle to rebuild itself after an electromagnetic pulse plunges the country into darkness, starvation, and death was followed closely by the acclaimed One Year After, continuing the Matherson saga.

The Final Day picks up after John Matherson and his community defeat the designs of the alleged federal government. Now they have returned their attention to restoring the technologies and social order existing prior to the EMP attack. When the government announces that it is ceding large portions of the country to China and Mexico, General Bob Scales is sent to confront Matheson. The Constitution is no longer in effect, and what’s left of the U.S. Army has been deployed to suppress rebellion in the remaining states.

General Scales is John’s former commanding officer and closest friend from prewar days. Where do his loyalties fall? Might he be the crucial turning point in the quest for an America that is again united? When news breaks that members of the federal government knew an EMP attack was coming long before it hit, the government might get exactly what it fears: revolution.

William R. Forstchen is the New York Times bestselling author of One Second After. He holds a Ph.D. in history from Purdue University, with specializations in military history and the history of technology. Forstchen is currently a faculty fellow and professor of history at Montreat College, near Asheville, North Carolina.
