“I don’t know why I became an actor,” Mr. Arnold has said. “My first memory of a theatre experience was at the age of three, and I was watching my father play the role of Billy Bigelow in the musical “Carousel.” When he fell on his knife and died, I started screaming and my uncle had to carry me out. Backstage after the show, when I saw my dad greeting people, I hurled myself into his arms sobbing in relief.”

A son of the vow…a voice for a nation
For many long years, Hannah prayed for a son; a son finally granted to her only when she promised him back to God. Samuel, son of the vow, grows up in the Tabernacle, his childhood spent in the company of priests and Levites, in service to a God who was always silent. Samuel watches in dismay as the sons of the High Priest flaunt their wicked behavior, yet he knows that Yahweh will eventually have a reckoning. It is not until he hears a Voice call to him from within the flames of the altar that he realizes he has a part to play in this drama.
This young man hears another voice from a maiden who captures his heart, and he begins to dream of a future beyond the confines of the Tabernacle. But when Israel’s enemies threaten to destroy his world, it appears as though everything Samuel ever held dear may come tumbling down around him.
Not even a great prophet, whose words never fall to the ground, can keep Israel from crying out for a king. The Lord calls upon Samuel to guide the nation and her new king through the years of turmoil they must face.
In this tale of triumph and scorn, deepest love and burning rivalries, the new epoch is given a voice…and it is a Song of Prophets and Kings.

SYNOPSIS: You can’t kidnap someone’s hope. They were teachers, engineers, nurses, students, and artists from around the world who answered God’s call to help Afghan refugees rebuild their lives following decades of war. But as international tensions reached inferno levels in 2001, extremists set out to rid Afghanistan of anyone who posed a threat to Islam and the influence of the Taliban.
The Shelter Now International (SNI) humanitarian effort led by Christians from Western countries topped the Taliban’s list.
Kabul 24 is the story you didn’t see on CNN. It’s the story of the human heartbeats behind the headlines that captivated the world during one of the most volatile political windows in recent history. Relive the harrowing, true account of how eight humanitarian aid workers imprisoned behind enemy lines would survive and even thrive in the midst of betrayal, inhumane conditions, and the massive Allied bombing raids conducted by their own countries following the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
From peacemakers to pawns in a story of political and religious turmoil, the eight would individually and collectively discover a level of hope that would free them from captivity long before their dramatic rescue by American Special Forces 105 days after their abduction.
“Kabul 24 by Ben Pearson and Henry Arnold, is about a group known as the ‘SNI Eight’. However, the story is not just about them, it is about their families and the locals that they provided employment for. They are arrested and unjustly punished for only helping a people that desperately needed helping. On September 11, 2001 America was attacked by terrorists. This happened shortly after the SNI eight were arrested. Their prisoners soon become more of abductors, attempting to use the eight as a personal shield from U.S. retaliation. While this book is an account of their experience, it flows in story-like form. I could not put this book down. A book is good when you can’t stop thinking about it even after you’ve finished. I can’t stop thinking about it.”

Maxwell says the difference maker is attitude. For those who have ever wondered what may be separating them from achieving the kind of personal and professional success they’ve always dreamt of, Dr. Maxwell has some words of insight: “Your attitude colors every aspect of your life. It is like the mind’s paintbrush.”
In The Difference Maker, Maxwell shatters common myths about attitude – what it can do for you and what it can’t. Showing you how to overcome the five biggest attitude obstacles, Dr. Maxwell teaches the skills you need to make attitude your biggest asset. Most importantly, you’ll learn not only how to develop an attitude that will have a tremendous impact on career, family, and daily living, but also how to maintain that attitude for the rest of your life.
Defining success is a difficult task. Most people equate it with wealth, power, and happiness. However, true success is not a thing you acquire or achieve. Rather, it is a journey you take your whole life long. In a refreshingly straightforward style, John Maxwell shares unique insights into what it means to be successful. And he reveals a definition that puts genuine success within your reach yet motivates you to keep striving for your dreams.
“I want to help you discover your personal road map for success, teach you what it means to be on the success journey, answer many of your questions, and equip you with what you’ll need to change yourself and keep growing.” (John C. Maxwell)
