A fresh new look for the best-selling series from America's number-one inspirational novelist, Karen Kingsbury. Fans will enjoy a personal note from Karen and Gary Smalley as well as discussion questions for book group use. Revisit the Baxter family in all their life-changing events, or share the series with someone who hasn't discovered it yet. The Redemption series won Christian Retailing 's 2005 Retailer's Choice Award for Best Series! When Kari Baxter Jacobs finds out that her husband is involved in an adulterous relationship and wants a divorce, she decides she will love him and remain faithful to her marriage at all costs. This book shows how God can redeem seemingly hopeless relationships, and it illustrates one of Gary Smalley's key messages: Love is a decision. Redemption is the first book in the five-book Redemption series that Gary and Karen will write about the Baxter family--their fears and desires, their strengths and weaknesses, their losses and victories. Each book explores key relationship themes as well as the larger theme of redemption, both in characters' spiritual lives and in their relationships.

Library Journal Review

Although numerous herbal books are available for both the consumer and the healthcare practitioner, this is the one that every medical library, pharmacist, physician, and healthcare student must have because of its accuracy, objectiveness, and comprehensiveness. The physicians contributing to the text have grouped data about herbs into 15 categories, giving scientific information for almost 1000 herbal products and dietary supplements used in the United States and Canada. In addition to providing the facts available in other herbals (e.g., PDR for Herbal Medicines, Complete German Commission E Monographs), this book grades the effectiveness and safety of the products. There is also hard-to-find information on lab tests, diseases, known and possible interactions with foods (e.g., grapefruit juice), and what many brand-name products contain. The entire text is supported by 8,204 references. Libraries will also need access to the web site,, which is updated daily and easy to navigate; some of the references have links to Medline records. The only flaw is that Boolean searching is not available. Although this book is geared to health practitioners, the consumer who wants up-to-date, accurate data will also find it useful. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries and essential for all medical and health science libraries.
