Review Excerpt: One thing that is particularly special about Overbeck’s books is that they unabashedly tackle social issues within their plots.  This book… touches upon the often-ignored plights of the hundreds of thousands of migrant workers who are the reason we are able to have such a variety of fruits, vegetables and other resources in our daily lives. Overbeck encourages readers to evaluate their moral standards and consider how much different things could be if only humans could treat each other a little more humanely, regardless of race, wealth, ethnicity, or gender.


Review excerpt: A devotional-style book meant to inform the reader as well as make them think about things on a deeper level. Fiensy is an author, speaker, and consultant on things Biblical with a long resume to back it up. In his latest book, he delves into the author of many books in the New Testament – the apostle Paul.

The primary focus of the book isn’t on Paul’s theology, but rather his spirituality. In keeping this our focus, we might soak it in and learn to become like Paul ourselves.


Review Excerpt: Focusing on the overloaded (and much headlined) topic of immigration, the author dives into dual cases in this book. Each one, however, has a different angle on everything from immigration rules and regulations to debates to hardships and actual pain that is inflicted on those who are both documented and undocumented citizens of the U.S. As the two cases unfold, everything from terrorists to basic human rights are written about, exposing a truly broken immigration system. So not only does the reader learn history, present-day injustices, and how this topic pits Americans against each other in many ways—they also experience a suspenseful, fast-paced book.
