The Da Vinci CodeBreaker by James L. Garlow



In The Da Vinci Code, author Dan Brown presents a mix of fact and fiction certain to lead many to question the Bible's integrity and Christianity's impact on history. Since fact checking does not seem to be a strong suit for Brown, this reference guide, The Da Vinci CodeBreaker, provides well-researched answers, both theologically and historically, to questions raised after reading Brown's book.

The topics are in alphabetical order. Maps, charts, photos, and symbols help discern fact from fiction in a clear, concise manner. Even if you've never read The Da Vinci Code or seen the movie adaptation, you'll still find great information in the book. The chart explaining when and why each book of the Bible was canonized is especially helpful.

The Da Vinci CodeBreaker by James L. Garlow (with Timothy Paul Jones and April Williams) is perfect for anyone who seeks to know the historical truth about Jesus and the Christian faith. This book will have you prepared to provide answers when someone asks you about the claims made in the novel and the film.

The Embrace of a Father compiled by Wayne Holmes



You'll be drawn into the embrace of the Heavenly Father as you read stories of love and relationship with earthly fathers in Wayne Holmes compilation, The Embrace of a Father. Men will find themselves inspired to become better dads, and more like the Heavenly Father. There are well known and lesser-known authors, but every story holds an important place in the book.

One story in particular, "Just Love Her," is representative of all the stories - a retelling of a teaching moment with a scriptural principle applied. With stories short enough to be read on the run, this book would be a great gift for anyone - not just the men in your life.
