Vivid. Passionate. Witty. Poignant. No one tells a story like Tony Campolo.

Why stories? Stories have the power to sneak up on us, catch us unaware, and in the process draw us closer to our fellow human beings . . . and to God. And when Tony Campolo tells a story, we are captivated and entertained by the amazing characters and situations he describes.

  • You’ll laugh (or wince) at how one particular missions offering was raised.
  • You’ll feel the tragedy of a friend Tony didn’t stand up for.
  • You’ll thrill to the “Sunday’s comin’ ” sermon.
  • You’ll be moved when you learn about the childhood event that caused Bishop Tutu to become a priest.

These are stories of hope, doubt, faith, failure, and triumph. Of people standing up for justice, showing mercy, and living for God. But don’t just expect to be entertained by Tony Campolo-though you will be. He just might change your heart and your life’s priorities.

Listen well. You might overhear God talking to you.

Hereafter

The third lost princess. The final key to the treasure. And a battle for the throne.

Growing up deep in the forest as a poor charcoal burner’s daughter, Emmeline has always known her identity as a princess of Mercia, and she lives in fear of being caught and killed. When her adopted father returns from town with news regarding the imminence of war, Emmeline has no wish to join the rebellion against King Ethelwulf.

Prince Ethelrex, the strongest warrior in the land, has done everything he can to prove his loyalty to his father, including searching for the last lost princess. When Ethelrex finally captures Emmeline, the king commands his son to marry the princess in order to win the support of the people and undermine the rebellion.

Forced into marriage, Emmeline has one goal—to escape. But Ethelrex takes his marriage vows seriously, including his promise to love and cherish his wife, and has no intention of letting Emmeline get away. As the battle for the throne rages, will the prince be able to win the battle for Emmeline’s heart?
