Favorite Book Picks from Amanda Bennett

I am constantly asked for good book suggestions, so here are a few of my current favorites for the coming month:


The Copper Scroll
By Joel C. Rosenberg / Tyndale House
On June 1, 1956, the New York Times broke a story that captured the imagination of the world. Another Dead Sea Scroll had been found, describing unimaginable treasures buried in the hills east of Jerusalem and under the holy city itself. But the scroll code had to be broken, and experts from all sides warned that any effort by Israel to rebuild the Temple with the treasure would undoubtedly trigger a war of biblical proportions. Fifty years later, the world is about to be shocked again. New York Times best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg takes you on his most exciting and heart-pounding ride yet, as a new democratic Iraq rises, so, too, a new evil, and White House advisors Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy find themselves facing a terrifying threat triggered by an ancient mystery.


In My Father's House, Shiloh Legacy Series #1
By Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene / Tyndale House
They just fought the War to End All Wars in France. Now they return home to a different kind of battle . . . one more fierce than they could imagine. In My Father's House follows the lives of four young soldiers: Max Meyer, an orphan from the poor Orchard Street neighborhood of New York; Ellis Warne, an Irish Doctor's son from Ohio; Birch Tucker, an Arkansas farm boy; and Jefferson Canfield, the son of a black sharecropper. Will these four men and those who love them be able to find any freedom, any peace, on the warring home front? Special Feature: Study questions suitable for individual use or group discussion.


By Robert Whitlow / Thomas Nelson
Thirteen-year-old Jimmy Mitchell from Piney Grove, Georgia, knows he's "slow," but he has an uncanny ability to see, hear, and understand quite a lot---even the occasional angel! When Jimmy's court testimony saves a man from jail, his neighbors are astonished---and wonder how one "special" child could change their lives forever. 416 pages, hardcover from WestBow.
