Fahrenheit 451, the 1953 reincarnation of "The Fire Man," presents ideas that are far more complex than that brief description indicates. This novel is a soothsayer, warning of a future populated by non-readers and non-thinkers; a lost people with no sense of their history. At the same time it salutes those who dedicate their lives to the preservation and passing on of knowledge, and testifies to the quiet or passionate courage of the rebel with a cause. Fahrenheit also poses questions about the role(s) of government: Should it reflect the will of the people? Should government do the people's thinking for them?

The unfruitful resistance to her Christian upbringing that colored much of her early life so too colors Andrea Dilley’s memoir, a story of crisis but also redemption that speaks to anyone driven to the margins of belief by skepticism and doubt.
FAITH IN THE FOG, by bestselling author, Jeff Lucas, explores the doubts and fears that many Christians feel when walking through a spiritual fog, when doubts about faith undermine the joy of belief. Jeff builds the book around the beautiful early morning breakfast that Jesus cooked for his weary friends - the episode described in great detail in John 21. They found themselves in the fog bank of unresolved shame, failure, and confusion. What Jesus did to help them --- and what he didn't do --- is enlightening and inspirational --- and the narrative allows for gentle prose, Jeff will entwine some of his own story. The book will be very focused on the person of Jesus and the way he approaches those who are worn out when life is tough.
