CyberMonday – Where do I find good Christian books?

CyberMonday – Where do I find good Christian books?

Please check out a wonderful post written by Lorilyn Roberts, founder of John316 Network for Christian authors.

Perhaps this Christmas you don’t have a lot of money to spend on gifts. Have you considered giving books as Christmas presents? I’d be willing to bet they will outlast the latest iPhone or iMac computer.

Ten years from now, those electronic gadgets will be in a landfill somewhere, long replaced by something bigger and faster. Stories last forever,  like that book my dad gave me for Christmas when he hardly had a dime to spare.

When is the last time you read a really good book anyway? Probably too long (Lorilyn Roberts).

Tadeo Turtle – Written and Illustrated by Janis Cox

Tadeo, pronounced TAHD-ay-OH, comes from the name Thaddeus, which means “heart” or “praise.”

Tadeo befriends an energetic squirrel and longs to be able to run and climb like his friend.

In a dream, Tadeo loses his shell and enjoys his new freedom–until a large hungry cat appears and mistakes Tadeo for a rat. Will Tadeo escape unharmed? When Tadeo awakes from his dream, his response proves he is aptly named.

Tadeo Turtle won the Best Children’s Book for 2013 by The Word Awards in Canada.

Canaan Hymns – The Sound of Christian China

by Martin Roth

One of the unexpected joys of doing research for my novel “Brother Half Angel” – set in China, and the first of my Brother Half Angel series of international thrillers – was discovering the gorgeous and moving Canaan Hymns.

Canaan Hymns are Christian hymns, to be sung in church
– in China.  (tweetable)

So they are somewhat different from the hymns we sing in our Western churches. Different from our traditional hymns, and different too from our modern praise-and-worship music.

They are sentimental, carrying a sense of nostalgia, with unpretentious melodies and lyrics that speak of the beauty and majesty of China and of a simple life spent in the presence of God. They are slow, melodic and a little dreamy. They are not deeply theological. They will not be to all Western tastes.

But just as moving as the hymns themselves is the story of how they came to be written.

One night in 1990 a young Chinese peasant girl named Xiao Min, unable to sleep, found a song flooding into her consciousness. Over ensuing weeks and months more songs arrived, unbidden, often while she was at her work in the fields picking cotton.

These were songs about God, about His great love for the Chinese people, about the Christian life of prayer, worship, joy and sacrifice.

Traveling evangelists realized the songs were a direct inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and began to spread them throughout the country. Soon Chinese believers everywhere, especially those in the underground home churches, were singing these songs whenever they worshipped.

Over the years Xiao Min received many more songs from God, until their number reached around one thousand. They were named the Canaan Hymns.

Here is one example of a Canaan Hymn:

We Give Our Lives Willingly – a Canaan Hymn by Xiao Min

Others can be found on YouTube. Google: Canaan Hymns.

Listen, and experience, as I have, the warm feelings of love and compassion that percolate from these tender and very special hymns.
