Twelve-year-old Dahlia has always lived at Silverton Manor-having spent fifty years as its resident ghost. When Oliver Day and his family show up as house-sitters the day Mrs. Tibbs, a Liberator sent by the Spectral Investigative Council, arrives to teach Dahlia the proper rules for ghosting, Dahlia can't wait to make new friends. But the unscrupulous ghost hunter, Rank Wiley, and the crooked town councilman, Jock Rutabartle, plan to rid Silverton Manor of its ghosts and sell it to the highest bidder. With her home and friendships at stake Dahlia may have to break the rules of ghosting as quickly as she learns them to solve the mystery of her death and save the manor. Equal parts charming and eerie, this ghostly caper hits all the right notes for the middle-grade audience.
As believers, our desire is to follow the Lord more closely and to understand His Word for maximum impact in our lives. Occasionally, however, we find ourselves not even knowing the right questions to ask or the best way to approach Scripture in search of answers. "Back to the Basics: A Guide for Christian Living" is not a lofty theological work, nor is it an academic commentary. Instead, using simple language, Pastor Joe Quatrone, Jr. addresses intriguing questions; such as: Why must there be consequences to actions? What are the benefits of waiting for God's will and how would I even know what that is? How can I stand strong in my faith against society's ungodly pressures? How does my relationship from the past affect my relationship with God now? Is there a secret to contentment? How can I be secure in my salvation? What happens when I die? "Back to the Basics: A Guide for Christian Living" is a great down to earth guide to basic Christian principles. Each concept is explained clearly without a lot of confusing doctrine and theology. If you are unsure of every part of your faith, a new Christian, want your faith shaken up, or have questions and no answers, then try this book. It will help bring Scripture to life, make sense of the hard questions, and enhance your understanding of the way life was meant to be lived.
