Christian Non-Fiction Reviews

Wild at Heart by John EldredgeWild at Heart - by John Eldredge. The sort of book one would expect if "Tim the Toolman Taylor" wrote a book for Christian men-except without the humor.

New Recommendation from Sam White!

New from Samuel White:

Baseline Time by Samuel White






Baseline Time

  • Edward and Marianne were bicycling through a hot west Texas day when the storm hit. When the storm cleared, west Texas was gone.


    This is Baseline Time, the story of the end of the world.

    Edward and Marianne, it seems, have been propelled (or summoned?) to the future--literally, to the very end of the world--to lead the battle against evil for the soul of the world. They are joined by Marcus, an enigmatic teacher and traveler who inspires confidence (and, in Edward, jealousy) and Daniel, a wise, enormous and wily hunter who is running from something in his past.

    White's best book to date!

Recommendation from Sam White!

Lost Time by Samuel White






Lost Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch - Book Three

  • The final book in The Legend of Garison Fitch! The saga that began with "First Time" and then went into high gear with "Saving Time" in '03 comes to a jarring conclusion in "Lost Time".


    In Lost Time, Jason Kerrigan and Bronwyn Dalmouth are test pilots for the Republic of Texas Army Air Corp in World War II. Flying an experimental craft in 1947, they are thrust thousands of years into the future, to find the lands they come from barren and almost devoid of life. When they return to 1947, they find the war over and the world changed. How could a trip to the future change the past?

Another Recommendation!

Also from Samuel White:

Saving Time by Samuel White






Saving Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch - Book Two

  • The triumphant return of Garison Fitch and author Samuel White! The long-awaited sequel to last year's excellent book on time travel ("First Time") is bolder, brighter and better than the original.


    In Saving Time, scientist Garison Fitch discovers that a hole (or maybe a lot of them) is destroying time. All indications are that the problem is his fault. So Garison must find a way to stop the holes before they destroy time itself.

Also from Samuel White:

First Time by Sam White






First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch

  • A brand new voice in the realm of Christian fiction, White brings us a tale of time travel, love, and world changing events with a page-turning excitement and word-smithing clarity that will keep you reading to the very last page (and anxious for more).


    Who is Garison Fitch? A reclusive scientist, Garison Fitch invents a machine which is supposed to send him interdimensionally. Instead, it sends him back through time. When he returns to the present, his world is destroyed, replaced by the one we know. Now, should he try to go back and "return everything to normal", or try to live in the world he has created?
