I've Never Loved Him More is one wife's story of what it means to live out her vows, "in sickness and in health," as her husband's caregiver in his struggle with Alzheimer's disease. With the same candor and tenacity that Candy Abbott displayed in her first book, Fruitbearer: What Can I Do For You Lord?, this story takes the reader through discovery, acceptance, adjustment, and battle against the ravages of what is often seen as a soul-crushing disease. Armed with faith, humor, and a history of spiritual victories, Candy demonstrates how she is loving her way through the mind-maze that would steal her husband of four decades. She engages Scripture, prayer, and spiritual support to combat this disease, weapons which can inspire others who are fighting chronic illnesses.

Do you long for the excitement the early Christians experienced and want to produce lasting fruit for the Kingdom of God? Do you long for the power to live your faith joyfully and make God your top priority? Do you long to recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit and sense a "call" on your life but feel inadequate? Do you long to have Christ's peace, even in the midst of turmoil, so you can impart peace to others? When you are busiest about the Lord's business, it is sometimes easy to forget that you cannot bear fruit unless you are rooted in the Vine. This new millennium, with back-to-back natural disasters and personal trials at every turn, demands that you trust Christ to empower you for service. As you read these pages, you will discover a new depth and fresh appreciation for God's work in your life, even in distressing times. Invite the Holy Spirit to meet you between the lines of Candy Abbott's spiritual journey, and you will find your relationship with your heavenly Father strengthened. Instead of asking "What can God do for me?" let your heart be filled to overflowing when the Holy Spirit prompts you to ask "What can I do for YOU, Lord?"

Charles is 78 years old and there is much he cannot remember. He cannot remember the names of his children, why he lives in a nursing home, or even whether he ate breakfast today. His forgetting causes confusion, and in his fear and uncertainty he sometimes lashes out at those who try to care for him. But when someone reads a favorite Psalm he quickly joins in, reciting each cherished word. When he hears an old hymn of faith, his hand slowly raises and he breathes out each word quietly, his face reflecting a peace that passes all understanding. Alzheimer’s disease has been described as the “defining disease” of the baby boomer generation. Millions of Americans will spend much of their retirement years either caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or experiencing its effects on their lives firsthand. When a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, they face great uncertainty, knowing that they can expect to live their remaining years with increasing confusion and progressively greater reliance upon other people to care for them. As the disease advances it seems to overwhelm a person, narrowing their focus and leading them to forget critical truths about the Lord, their life with him, and his promises. Through the personal stories of those affected and the loved ones who care for them, Dr. Benjamin Mast highlights the power of the gospel for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Filled with helpful, up-to-date information, Dr. Mast answers common questions about the disease and its effect on personal identity and faith as he explores the biblical importance of remembering and God’s commitment to not forget his people. In addition, he gives practical suggestions for how the church can come alongside families and those struggling, offering help and hope to victims of this debilitating disease. If you are a Christian who knows or loves someone with Alzheimer’s disease, have recently been diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s disease, or are a pastor or ministry leader seeking to better understand and minister to people with Alzheimer’s disease this book will encourage you with the good news of God’s faithfulness and the future hope he calls us to.

In his researches David Yallop uncovered an extraordinary story: behind the Pope's death lay a dark and complex web of corruption within the Church that involved the Freemasons, Opus Dei and the Mafia and the murder of the 'Pope's Banker' Roberto Calvi. When first published in 1984 In God's Name was denounced by the Vatican yet became an award-winning international bestseller. In this new edition, Yallop brings the story up to date and reveals new evidence that has been long buried concerning the truth behind the Vatican cover-up. This is a classic work of investigative writing whose revelations will continue to reverberate around the world.
