Click to view at WTSbooks

Popular writer Douglas Bond’s newest The Betrayal! Written from the vantage point of a lifelong sworn enemy of Calvin, a young man who grows up in the same city and yet remains close to the Christian leader, but with secret designs to do him harm. A fast-paced, historical fiction which shows us the raging emotions the times of the Reformation would have set many into, as vast changes swept the continent of Europe.

“With masterful insight, Douglas Bond offers us an illuminating portrait of the life, ministry, and theology of John Calvin. For readers of all ages, this well-researched, historical fiction takes us back to the 16th-century Reformation as if we were eye-witnesses of all that God accomplished in and through the life of His humble servant John Calvin.” — Burk Parsons, editor of the book John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, Doxology

“Douglas Bond introduces Calvin to us in a gripping way, colorfully taking us back to Geneva and its times, unveiling Calvin as the principled man of action, commitment, and love that he was. The Betrayal makes for an exciting read, showing the great Reformer’s heart, while almost effortlessly undoing caricatures about Calvin along the way. If you want Calvin and his times brought to life in a page-turner, this is the book for you!”

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

Click to view at WTSbooks

Who among us has never wondered if there might not really be a tempter sitting on our shoulders or dogging our steps? C.S. Lewis dispels all doubts. In The Screwtape Letters, one of his bestselling works, we are made privy to the instructional correspondence between a senior demon, Screwtape, and his wannabe diabolical nephew Wormwood. As mentor, Screwtape coaches Wormwood in the finer points, tempting his “patient” away from God.

Each letter is a masterpiece of reverse theology, giving the reader an inside look at the thinking and means of temptation. Tempters, according to Lewis, have two motives: the first is fear of punishment, the second a hunger to consume or dominate other beings. On the other hand, the goal of the Creator is to woo us unto himself or to transform us through his love from “tools into servants and servants into sons.” It is the dichotomy between being consumed and subsumed completely into another’s identity or being liberated to be utterly ourselves that Lewis explores with his razor-sharp insight and wit.
