The secret ingredient is love. It was a short distance from Anne Beiler's little town in the heart of Mennonite country to her humble farmer's stand that would become the first Auntie Anne's Pretzel store. But it was a long life journey for Anne to get there. Twist of Faith is more than the inspiring story of building a successful business; it's a personal journey of faith and forgiveness. From the death of her young daughter to surviving the rigors of building a successful business to struggles with depression, Anne offers a deeply personal view of her life. She says, "If you knew my life and understood where I came from, you would agree that Auntie Anne's, Inc. is a modern day business miracle." Twist of Faith is an inspiring look at the life of a woman who went from an 8th-grade Amish education to founding Auntie Anne's, Inc., the world's largest mall-based pretzel franchise.

American Christians, veteran reporter John Donnelly has discovered, are an ever-increasing source of aid in Africa, with some experts estimating that U.S. churches supply more resources to Africa than USAID. In A Twist of Faith, he tells the unlikely story of how faith and determination compelled one such American Christian to travel to Africa and open a school for children orphaned by the AIDS epidemic. David Nixon, a carpenter from North Carolina who had lived through his share of trouble, knew nothing about the small, land-locked African country of Malawi. But after having a religious awakening and hearing about a preacher's efforts to aid its impoverished and beleaguered citizens, he raises money from his church and sets off to do what so many well-intentioned Americans of faith do in Africa: build an orphanage. But as his plans are beset with difficulties, Nixon slowly comes to realize that helping others requires listening to and learning from them. And that means changing his preconceived ideas of what the Malawians need and how he can best serve them. A Twist of Faith is the story of one man who, despite personal struggles, a profound cultural gap, the corruption of local officials, and the heartbreak of losing an orphan he comes to love, saves himself by saving others in a place nothing like home. Nixon's story is representative of a growing trend: the thousands of American Christians who are impassioned donors of time, money, and personal energy, devoted to helping African children.

Uneasy Peace. Worlds In Flux. Tests Of Faith. The Final Episode Was Only The Beginning. The Dominion War is over...or is it? Three months after the Allied victory against the invaders from the Gamma Quadrant, a surprise attack awakens the fear of renewed hostilities. At the same time, a senseless murder sets a space station commander on a path that will test the limits of her faith...while a strange discovery within the plasma storms of the Badlands propels an old soldier toward a rendezvous with destiny. Elsewhere, amidst the ruins of an ancient civilization, a young man is about to embark on a dangerous quest to fill the hole in his life -- one left by the loss of his father. So begins the unprecedented, authorized continuation of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine®, springing from the seven-year television odyssey of Captain Benjamin Sisko and his crew aboard a Federation starbase at the edge of the final frontier. Following the serial format and evolving character arcs that were the hallmarks of the TV series, the new Deep Space Nine novels pick up where the show left off, daring to imagine what happened after the final episode. Now the first five tales of that critically acclaimed storyline are collected in one massive volume. Originally published as the two-part Avatar, Abyss, Demons of Air and Darkness, and the novella "Horn and Ivory," Twist of Faith revisits the aftermath of the Dominion War, the pivotal planet Bajor, its mysterious connection to the timeless Prophets of the wormhole, as well as the familiar faces, new friends, and uncertain allies whose fates intertwine at the crossroads of the galaxy. With an introduction by New York Times bestselling author David R. George III (Mission: Gamma -- Twilight; The Lost Era: Serpents Among the Ruins; the Crucible trilogy), Twist of Faith takes the Deep Space Nine saga to a new level...exploring what was left behind, and what awaits beyond.

Berit Kjos is convinced that millions of women are traveling down cultural freeways to self-made spirituality. Why, she asks, have feminist myths and goddesses replaced biblical faith for many Christians who have embarked on journeys of self-discovery.
A Twist of Fate is the extraordinary life journey of Raymond Hohmann. Born in Detroit, at age six he crossed the Atlantic for a summer vacation with his grandparents in East Prussia. At the time, war was of little concern to the American visitors, but soon it became very real to the little boy who remained behind when his mother returned home early. When Oma and Opa became ill, Ray went to live with his uncle where he felt safe despite the sound of Hitler's booted soldiers marching past their farmhouse. He was a teenager when the war ended and Russian troops raided the farm, raped his neighbors' women, and hauled him off to a Gulag labor camp in Siberia. On his arrival, he was greeted with a brutal beating, which severely damaged his legs. Through efforts by the German Red Cross and US State Dept. he was finally released and returned home to a waiting ambulance which took him to the hospital for medical treatment. He eventually recovered in body, mind and spirit and went on to marry, raise a large family, and establish a successful business. Along the way he became a Master Gardener known for award-winning Japanese garens that were the pride of Michigan's St. Clair Township. Hohmann attributes his survival in the Gulag labor camp, the love of his devoted family, and the success of his business to faith in God, which continues to sustain him during his retirement years in the mountains of North Carolina.
