From Lonely Planet, the world's leading travel guide publisher, Better Than Fiction 2, the follow-up to 2012's Better Than Fiction, is a second serving of true travel stories told by some of the world's best fiction writers including Dave Eggers, Jane Smiley and Karen Joy Fowler. Varied in place, plot and voice, these are stirring and evocative pieces that all share one common characteristic-they manifest a passion for the precious gift of travel, from its unexpected but inevitably enriching lessons about other peoples and places, to the truths, sometimes uncomfortable but always enlarging, it reveals about ourselves. By turns comic, dramatic, and moving - from Francine Prose's confrontation of the mysteries of India to DBC Pierre's search for Hemingway's muse in Italy - these 30 short tales reveal the joys, perils, and surprises of travel, and that truth can often be stranger (and better) than fiction. Whether on a plane en route to your own travel adventure, or at home settling in for a vicarious experience of world adventures, embark on this literary journey around the world and explore your passion for travel now!

It would be wonderful if every Christian could maintain the newness and wholesomeness of his or her salvation experience. But the unfortunate reality is Christians do sin. There may be a number of Josephs and Daniels within the ranks of Christendom who succeed in retaining a sterling character from start to finish. Human experience, however, reveals that the greater part of God’s family consists of people like David, Samson, Jonah, Jacob, and Simon Peter; people who, for one reason or another, lose the enthusiasm, spiritual strength, and sensitivity that once characterized their lives. Spiritual battles, temptations, disappointments, and failures take their toll. Harmful indiscretions cause painful bruising to the soul. Prodigal sons and daughters abound. But in spite of self-inflicted wounds there is good news; there is great news. God’s love and compassion abound even more. His desire is not to discard damaged lives. God’s intention is to restore wayward sons and daughters to their proper place in His family. The Father’s plan is to make them “better than new.” This book explores the process by which the “better than new” condition can be realized.

Not only did she lose her fiancé and her best friend, who both betrayed her in ways she’d never imagined, but when Kendrik tries to push her into a relationship with him right after leaving Mulah, she hesitates and he falls back, making her feel that she’s also lost out on him for good. But when she realizes that Kendrik is the only one she’s ever really wanted, she runs back into his arms only to be devastated by a shocking discovery concerning his past. Will this ruin everything they were trying for before it even begins? After stumbling upon Ronnie’s secret, Dallas wants nothing to do with him regardless of the fact that she’s pregnant with their child. Longing for the affection that she’d placed in a man whom she’d lost after finding him having sex with another man, Dallas seeks it from Jarrell, the sexy, thuggish grandson of one of her neighbors. Jarrell has the rugged, cocky masculinity that she was craving and he makes love to her mind and body in ways that leaves her continuously begging for more and more. But soon Jarrell’s rough nature proves to be too much for Dallas to handle. Will she stick it out and hope for change or will she admit that she’s failed at love yet again? Although Kaletha has loved Mulah her whole life, there comes a time when a woman can’t help but to be sick of the disrespect. And that’s exactly where Kaletha is when she decides to go on a date with Brandon. Brandon is the perfect man for her; he’s successful, sexy, romantic and intelligent. But he lacks the thug swag that makes Mulah so damn irresistible. Determined to make things work and to leave Mulah and to deal with his growing issues with the women he continues to include in his life, Kaletha tries to focus on her relationship with Brandon. But when he drops a bombshell on her concerning their relationship, Kaletha is thrown for a loop and unsure on whether she can trust herself to really leave Mulah alone. Will she be able to resist her greatest temptation for someone who treats her the way she’s always desired or will she give in to what’s comfortable to her and wander back into Mulah’s open arms?

The English translation of the three-volume Exegetisches Wrterbuch zum Neuen Testament, this monumental work by an ecumenical group of scholars is first of all a complete English dictionary of New Testament Greek. Going beyond that, however EDNT also serves as a guide to the usage of every New Testament word in its various contexts, and it makes a significant contribution to New Testament exegesis and theology. EDNT's thorough, lengthy discussions of more significant words and its grouping of words related by root and meaning (with alphabetical cross-references) distinguish it from simpler Greek-English lexicons. Advancing the discussion of the Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament, EDNT summarizes more recent treatments of numerous questions in New Testament study and takes into consideration newer viewpoints of linguistics.

Jesus Is Better Than You Imagined by Jonathan Merritt

Is the God who created us better than the God we've created? After following Jesus for nearly two decades, Jonathan Merritt decides to confront the emptiness of a faith that has become dry, predictable, and rote. In a moment of desperation, he cries out for God to show up and surprise him, and over the next year, God doesn't disappoint. In JESUS IS BETTER THAN YOU IMAGINED, Jonathan shares vulnerable, never-before-shared stories of how he learned to encounter Jesus in unexpected ways. Through a 60-hour vow of silence in a desert monastery, he experiences Jesus in silence. When a friend dies of a rare disease, he sees Jesus in tragedy. Through confronting childhood sexual abuse, Jonathan discovers Jesus in honesty. In an anti-Christian-themed bar, he finds Jesus in sacrilege. And when he's almost kidnapped in Haiti by armed bandits, he experiences Jesus in the impossible. Though Merritt finds himself in places he never dreamed of, he doesn't lose his way. Instead, these experiences force him back to the Bible, where he repeatedly offers fresh, sometimes provocative, interpretations of familiar passages. Along the way, he throws back the covers on the sleepy faith of many Christians, urging them to search for the Holy in their midst. Pointed and poignant by turns, Jonathan helps readers open their hearts to a mysterious God and a faith that sustains, guides, and most importantly, surprises. His fearlessly honest story invites us all to discover the messy mercy and crazy grace of a sometimes startling Savior.
