Thing is, you gotta kill it first.”<br /><br />Kevin Pearce—baseball star, honor student, the pride of Brighton—was fifteen when he left town in the back of his uncle’s cab. He and his buddy Bobby Scales had just committed heinous violence for what they thought were the best of reasons. Kevin didn’t want a pass, but he was getting it anyway. Bobby would stay and face the music; Kevin’s future would remain bright as ever. At least that was the way things were supposed to work, except in Brighton things never work the way they’re supposed to.<br /><br />Twenty-six years later, Kevin is a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist for the&#xa0;Boston Globe. He’s never been back to his old block, having avoided his family and, especially, Bobby Scales. Then he learns his old friend is the prime suspect in a string of local murders. Suddenly, Kevin’s headed home—to protect a friend and the secret they share. To report this story to the end and protect those he loves, he must face not only an elusive, slippery killer, but his own corrupted conscience.<br /><br />A powerhouse of a thriller,&#xa0;Brighton&#xa0;is a riveting and elegiac exploration of promises broken, debts owed, and old wrongs made right . . . no matter what the cost.

Price :  $14.99
Release Date :  2015-07-17
Description :  We like to think our church welcomes visitors.&#xa0;<br /> But how welcoming can we be, if we are not inviting? We are welcoming as long as people get themselves across the church threshold, but we fail to take our welcome outside.&#xa0;<br /><br /> During the years Michael has been developing Back to Church Sunday, he has conducted an extensive study on the seemingly simple subject of “invitation”. Over 650 times in 12 countries he has asked: “Why don’t we invite our friends to take a closer look at Christ?” The many answers form the impetus for this book.<br /><br /> After considering why it seems so hard to invite friends to church, Michael looks at our concerns over acceptance and rejection, and suggests ideas gleaned from years of trying to establish a culture of invitation.<br /><br /> “When I have specifically encouraged Christians to issue an invitation, some people say yes and some no. God sent his son to invite us all into a relationship, and so to be like God is to be a person who invites!”

In 2009 at least 80,000 new people came to church in Britain through this approach, with around 10,000 becoming new believers. The basics are simple: Invite your friends, and become an inviting church. Develop a mind-set open to what God might do; work on creating a welcoming environment; learn from mistakes; help people to know God. "It takes a very brave person to walk into a church on their own nowadays," says Michael, "but God is still speaking to them and all they need is a gentle invitation."
