Fighter$20.99Add to cart
At the age of twelve, Piari already had a number of kills under his belt. The strategy, skill, and thrill of the fight charmed him. He loved the fight. He lived for it. That was his life-Piari, fighter! Piari, warrior!
Set in the highlands of Papua New Guinea in the 1940s and 1950s, this is the story of a tribal warrior. Whether in ancient times or modern, the role of the warrior that goes into battle is often glorified. But when it comes to recognizing true bravery, often the highest awards and accolades go to those who have risked their lives in order to save others.
Piari was such a warrior. Though he started out thirsting for the kill, he ultimately traded his weapons for a Bible and tribal skirmishes for a real battle-the battle between good and evil. And this makes Piari the bravest warrior of all.

Why do they leave?
Is there anything the church can do to prevent them from turning away, or to bring them back once they’ve left? Is there anything I can do?
You probably know people who have left the church. Maybe you know why they walked away, but more likely you don’t. But you do care. And that’s why this book is in your hands.
Barry Gane explores the reasons so many young people decide to leave, considers the complexities of the adolescent mind, addresses the stages of faith development, and offers effective strategies for reclaiming missing youth.
A word of caution: Read this book only if you’re willing to take action. Wooing young people back to the church will cost you time and energy, and demand significant change-just as it did the shepherd Jesus told us about who braved the dark night to find one lost sheep
Curse Proof$15.39Add to cart
A little woman with a rope in her hand sprang from the verandah and ran screaming into the forest.
“Look, look, it’s mother!” screamed the two sisters. “She’s going into the jungle to hang herself!”
They gave a withering look at their brother, Maung Thein, and shouted, “It’s all your fault! It’s all your fault! You’ve driven your mother mad, and if she commits suicide, we’ll call you a murderer!”
The village people gathered and asked, “Why don’t you undo it? Why don’t you undo this baptism?”
You’ll be inspired by this story of a young man’s unshakeable faith. Although some of the incidents recorded have been mentioned in other volumes, this is the first time the full story of Maung Thein has been made available in a stand-alone book.
This is a never-before published storybook by one of the church’s most beloved authors and storytellers, Eric B. Hare. After many years his daughter-in-law, Patti Hare, found his handwritten manuscript and carefully transcribed it, and submitted it for publication.
Although Eric B. and Agnes Hare are asleep in Jesus, their legacy of mission service captured in stories on audio recordings and in books has continued to promote faithfulness to Christ in Adventists around the world and across the generations.
