Description

Everyone experiences feelings of hopelessness, and sometimes those dark feelings seem like they will linger forever. Hopelessness can arise when dealing with family or friends; or perhaps with the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or the beginning of a tough financial season. In times of great distress, our God brings us comfort, compassion, and of course, hope. The God of Hope guides our hearts, helping us find hope and healing in His word.

Gode(tm)s hope for individuals, humanity, and the world fill the pages of the Bible, and stories of His work in our hearts when hope seems to fail are endless. Full Scripture passages and reflections drawn from every book of the Bible will offer readers a deeper understanding of the hope God offers to us daily. Each author explains the historical and theological aspects of Gode(tm)s blessings of hope, so we can better apply His Word to every situation. For the reader who needs help seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, The God of Hope is the perfect choice.

Features include:

Scripture passages and reflections from each book of the Bible Historical, theological, and practical exploration of hope

display_descriptionA Pilot's Dramatic Story of His Secret Missions Over Laos During the Vietnam WarLike Jarhead, We Were Soldiers Once..., and Young, John T. Halliday's combat memoir is gripping, novelistic, and startlingly candid, taking readers through the devastating trials and hard-won victories of flying in the Vietnam War.The year is 1970, and John T. Halliday has just landed in the middle of the Vietnam War, primed to begin his assignment with the 606 Special Operations Squadron. But there's a catch: He's stationed in a kind of no-man's-land. No one on his base flies with ID, patches, or rank. Even as Richard Nixon firmly denies reporters' charges that the U.S. has forces in Laos, Halliday realizes that from his base in Thailand, he will be flying top-secret black ops night missions over the Laotian Ho Chi Minh Trail.A naive yet thoughtful twenty-four-year-old, Halliday is utterly unprepared for the horrors of war. On his first mission, Halliday's aircraft dodges more than a thousand anti-aircraft shells. Nothing is as he expected-not the operations, not the way his shell-shocked fellow pilots look and act, and certainly not the squadron's daredevil, seat-of-one's-pants approach to piloting. But before long, Halliday has become one of those seasoned and shell-shocked pilots and finds himself in a desperate search for a way to elude certain death.A powerhouse fusion of pathos and humor, brutal realism and intimate reflection, Flying Through Midnight is a landmark contribution to Vietnam War literature, revealing previously top-secret intelligence on the 606' s night missions. Fast-paced, thrilling, and bitingly intelligent, Halliday's writing illuminates it all: the heart-pounding air battles, the close friendships, the crippling fear, and the astonishing final escape that made the telling of it possible.
