The collection of 12 glass Christmas ornaments Filomena brought with her to America from war-torn Italy represented her family history and legacy, a symbol of the survival of her special and fragile family. So when Filomena began to distribute these ornaments to her children, grandchildren, and other important people in her life, it seemed like she was giving away pieces of herself. Many years later, when Filomena is nearing the end of her life, she wants to bring her Christmas glass, and her family, back together. But sibling rivalries and the distance of time and space have made Filomena's family as delicate as the glass ornaments. As the owners of each ornament slowly gather, their stories both join and clash with Filomena's hopes and memories. Will this odd and sometimes volatile assortment of individuals find peace and reconciliation over this extraordinary Christmas holiday? The Christmas Glass tells their stories, exploring the bonds and conflicts of one very extended family on one very important Christmas.

Devotionals are designed to bring the reader into a more intimate relationship with God. Dianne Neal Matthews knows no better way for believers to know God more intimately than to immerse themselves in his Word. To that end, her new daily devotional combines fascinating historical background information about the Bible with practical application that readers can implement in their lives each day. She guides readers on a journey through the Bible from beginning to end, highlighting major events, characters, and stories, as well as difficult issues and topics (such as the concept of theophany, God's instructions to the Israelites to show no mercy as they entered the Promised Land, and what seems at first glance to be discrepancies between the Gospels). Readers new to Bible study or those who long to learn more will appreciate the background information Matthews provides, as well as the way she shows how the Scriptures fit together to form a cohesive work. This is the perfect devotional for anyone who desires to go deeper into the Scriptures as they deepen their relationship with God.

Death is an inevitable and constant part of life, yet those who grieve often feel misunderstood and alone in their journey, says Kathe Wunnenberg, author of Grieving the Loss of a Loved One. This compassionate book acts as a daily devotional companion to hurting people. Designed for adult readers of all ages and stages in the grieving process, it is sensitively written by an author who suffered three miscarriages and the death of an infant son. She knows from firsthand experience that there are no easy answers for those who mourn. Sixty devotions cover the many stages of grieving, including readings for holidays, birthdays, and special occasions, when grief can be particularly painful.
