I AM BATHSHEBA

Until now, the true story of Bathsheba has gone untold. She was simply judged as King David’s big mistake – a vulnerable and loose woman caught bathing naked on a rooftop across from the Royal Palace. The nation wouldn’t dare condemn a man for adultery, especially the King – everyone would rather believe he had a weak moment.

But on the contrary. The King’s greed for lust and power had an underlying obsession, and only a woman like Bathsheba could quell his forbidden desire. Besides, she was far from being vulnerable. She was an angel of darkness. A woman trained in mysticism, seduction and erotic sex by her legendary grandmother. And for one reason only: to steal the King’s soul and have his child.

But Bathsheba wanted it all – she saw the day coming when King David would pass, and a new king appointed. Of course, she demanded their son Solomon take the throne. The only missing piece would be her replacement as queen. That’s when Bathsheba’s hungry quest for control rises to new heights. She scours the nation to find a young virgin to be her equal; desiring to mentor her in the same mystical and seductive acts used to manipulate her way to the throne. As a result, the power struggle in the Palace becomes a saga like no other.

At the close of her life, Bathsheba writes her untold story using a collection of diaries; most of which, she cleverly stole from those within the Palace. In doing so, the world would discover the many unholy secrets royal families keep – mainly, that it was her who sat on the King’s throne, and cunningly ruled the nation. This was the real Queen; salacious and dominant – This was Bathsheba!

The Proving

“Mandy, you are to inherit the farmhouse, including the business of the inn.”

She could scarcely find her voice to respond. “Ach, this must be a mistake,” she told him, shaking her head as she talked into the phone, feeling befuddled. “The house . . . and everything related to the inn . . . shouldn’t that go to Arie Mae?”

After five years as an Englisher, Amanda Dienner is shocked to learn her mother has passed away and left her Lancaster County’s most popular Amish bed-and-breakfast. What’s more, the inn will only truly be hers if Mandy can successfully run it for twelve months. Reluctantly, Mandy accepts the challenge, no matter that it means facing the family she left behind–or that the inn’s clientele expect an Amish hostess! Can Mandy fulfill the terms of her inheritance? Or will this prove a dreadful mistake?

Shortgrass

Mennonite farm boy Lance Roark’s faith is as big as the challenges he faces on his family’s drought-ravaged Dust Bowl spread on the old Chisholm Trail. He can also run over, around, and away from people on the football field and is a natural-born aviator. These abilities lead him to college gridiron glory and bring him into contact with famed aviators Charles Lindbergh and Wiley Post, entertainment icons Will Rogers and Bing Crosby, best-selling young author John F. Kennedy, and President Franklin Roosevelt.

As war clouds gather across the seas, Lance finds romance first with teenaged Chickasaw cowgirl and stunt flying sensation Sadie Stanton, then with beautiful oil heiress Mary Katherine Murchison, whose mesmerizing voice carries her to the heights of Big Band Era stardom. Nearly all of this crashes against his pious, peaceable ways. And it leads him into the dangerous world of America First, the Lindbergh-led organization that opposes the popular Roosevelt’s covert drive toward American involvement in World War II, now ablaze in both Europe and the Pacific.

When the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor, Lance, with his lifelong commitment never to raise his hand against another human being, faces his ultimate decision—whether to accept command of a B-17 Flying Fortress in which he would face, and inflict, mass slaughter in Nazi-occupied Europe amidst history’s most fearsome war.

A Course in Miracles

Based on the original handwritten notes by Helen Shucman

Threads of Suspicion

Will her latest cold case unravel before justice is served?

Evie Blackwell’s reputation as a top investigator for the Illinois State Police has landed her an appointment to the governor’s Missing Persons Task Force. With so much public fanfare surrounding the launch of this elite investigative team, the political stakes are high, and the team will have to produce results–and quickly.

Evie and her new partner, David Marshal, are assigned to a pair of unrelated cases in suburban Chicago, and while both involve persons now missing for several years, the cases couldn’t be more different. As Evie opens old wounds in a close-knit neighborhood over the disappearance of a college student, David searches for a private investigator whose last case involved a high-powered client.

With a deep conviction that “justice for all” truly matters, Evie and David are unrelenting in their search for the truth. But the questions that lie just beneath the surface in Evie’s personal life are also begging for answers.

Conspiracy of silence

This Is the Way the World Ends.

Four years after a tragic mission decimated his team, Cole “Tox” Russell has been disavowed by the United States. And that’s fine–he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed, Tox is lured back into action.

Tox and his former Special Forces team regroup to work with FBI deception expert, Kasey Cortes, and fiery archaeologist, Tzivia Khalon, to search the globe for answers–and a cure. As the mission leads from one continent to another, it becomes clear they’re not just fighting a plague but battling an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.

With time running out and the threat for a global pandemic rising, Tox and his team realize their sole chance might be to reach back through centuries of silence to find the only answer that can save them all.

Improbable Planet

Most of us remember the basics from science classes about how Earth came to be the only known planet that sustains complex life. But what most people don’t know is that the more thoroughly researchers investigate the history of our planet, the more astonishing the story of our existence becomes. The number and complexity of the astronomical, geological, chemical, and biological features recognized as essential to human existence have expanded explosively within the past decade. An understanding of what is required to make possible a large human population and advanced civilizations has raised profound questions about life, our purpose, and our destiny. Are we really just the result of innumerable coincidences? Or is there a more reasonable explanation?

Hells Bend – A Moment From Eternity

Have you ever heard of the “ripple effect”? Have you ever considered that one selfish, stupid decision could change your family…your community…your whole life…forever?
In this story, based on true-life events, Jake Adams discovers that his choices have unintended consequences—both for good and for evil. And through those choices, God displays how He weaves the threads of a life into a tapestry, working “all things together for good”…even selfish, stupid decisions.

Hell’s Bend is a gripping, fast-paced story with clever plot twists and some surprising outcomes that entertain and challenge both teen and adult readers.- Tim Wildmon, President, American Family Association

In this debut novel, Angie Camp crafts a fast-paced, engaging novel with characters who illustrate the best and the worst of Christ-followers. With its surprising plot twists, engaging characters and too-real conflicts, it will keep the reader up late and challenge any serious reader to take inventory of his own faith.-Randall Murphree, Editor, AFA Journal, American Family Association

“To mourn is to know God and His deepest wounds for His Son who bore our infirmities and our sorrows. This intimate, honest, and unforgettable story of tragedy and triumph takes you on a journey, as despair is conquered and the wounded are made whole again.”–Merle Temple, The Redeemed

“God’s grace and mercy is something many of us hold on to as we navigate life. The unexpected ups and downs, the decisions we make and the people’s lives we touch and are touched by, help define who we are. Hell’s Bend is a story that shows all of this to be true. I had intended to read Hell’s Bend” over a week of traveling, but God had another plan. Once I started it, I could not put it down until I was finished! I was riveted by the stories of each person and the twists and turns they each encountered. God has a plan. You’re in it. How will you handle the bend in your life?”- Stephen Tybor III, President – Eight Days of Hope/Hope Reigns

“A young man’s arrogance and pride – with a spoonful of boyish lust for a classic muscle car – is a formula for disaster. And yet, this is a story of redemption and grace. A novel of pain, brokenness, and second chances…Hell’s Bend has it all.” – Chad McMahan, Senator, Mississippi Senate District 6

Angie Camp is a worship leader, speaker and first-time author. The single mother of five resides in Northeast Mississippi where she is continuing her education through Liberty University Online in Christian Counseling.

Barry Westmoreland, a native of North Mississippi, served as co-author for Hell’s Bend: A Moment From Eternity. Although a salesman by trade, his own life experiences inspired Barry to initiate this project. He and his wife, Donna, currently reside in South Alabama.

Afta-U

Michael’s smile broadened. “It seems you’re surprised to see me, Jean. Don’t tell me you thought that they’d leave an eleven-year-old boy locked away forever.”

Twenty-nine years after the tragic death of her childhood best friend, Hope, Jean Cartwright Rhodes returns to her hometown with her husband and daughter after she inherits the house her friend’s family once lived in. Now, years later, she finds herself haunted by a dark truth – and by the specter of Hope herself.

Every time Jean looks through her kitchen window, she sees two stark reminders of her troubled past; the Afta-U sailboat, ironically named after young Hope, and the old oak tree where her eleven-year-old friend met her death at the hands of another child.

Afta-U unfolds as a psychological chess match, a complex web of intrigue, unexpected relationships, lies, and devastating secrets as Jean stuggles with the impact of decisions she made long ago on all the lives around her. When Jean confronts and tries to come to grips with Hope’s killer, she finds herself waging a personal battle between madness and redemption.

The Christmas Story

Long ago in the town of Bethlehem, on a bright and starry night, a baby was born, a child who was called the son of God. Announced by an angel, born in a humble manger, laid in a bed of straw, visited by shepherds and wise men—the age-old, awe-inspiring story of the birth of Jesus is lovingly brought to life by master pop-up artist Robert Sabuda in six gorgeously imagined scenes, culminating in a 3-D manger sheltering humans and beasts, guarded by an angel above. Glinting with touches of gold and pearlescent foil, The Christmas Story is a visual feast, a holiday treasure to be shared with the whole family.
