New from Fiction First



FictionFirst banner




Volume 3, Issue 72




If you think the thrills and chills of summer are limited to the latest monster roller coaster at your local theme park, think again! This summer's lineup at Tyndale Fiction promises more ups, downs, and twists than the Intimidator 305, more heart-pounding emotion than the Tower of Terror. Read on . . . if you dare.

• In The Advocate, Randy Singer crafts a compelling story that weaves a fine legal thriller with biblical historical fiction, culminating in the trial of the apostle Paul during Nero's bloodthirsty persecution of Christians. You'll give a thumbs-up to this intense novel when you check out our current Must Read selection.

Firewall, the first book in a blazing new series from DiAnn Mills, follows newlywed Taryn Young as she discovers her husband might not be who she thinks he is, but rather a terrorist responsible for an airport bombing. And Taryn herself could be implicated as a coconspirator.

• In Saving Amelie, award-winning author Cathy Gohlke takes readers back to Nazi Germany, where Rachel Kramer's geneticist father becomes embroiled in Hitler's evil quest for human perfection, and Rachel must stand up for what is right at the risk of her own life.

The Midwife by Jolina Petersheim exposes the hurting hearts of three women at a shelter for unmarried mothers in a rural Tennessee Mennonite community—and the unexpected healing they receive there.
Hang on to your hammock—it's going to be a wild ride!

The AdvocateThe Advocate
Randy Singer

"Singer proves himself to be the Christian John Grisham."—Publishers Weekly

If he could take the words back, he would. As a brilliant young lawyer in the Roman Empire, Theophilus made a suggestion—"Offer to release Barabbas—" that backfired, leading to the crucifixion of an innocent man and altering the course of history. Thirty years later, he finds himself defending another man, this one named Paul. Will Theophilus have the courage to confront the deranged emperor Nero and mount a defense that will keep another innocent man from execution?

In The Advocate, legal thriller meets biblical fiction as Randy Singer draws on his dual background as lawyer and pastor to transport readers back to ancient Rome and Jerusalem in a powerful, potentially life-changing story.

Randy explains, "Paul said in his second letter to Timothy, 'Though no one supported me in my first defense, may it not be held against them. The Lord stood with me and gave me strength so that the message through me would be fully proclaimed to the Gentiles, and I was delivered out of the mouths of the lions.' When Paul said that no one stood with him, he was probably talking about the other Christians in Rome who didn't testify for him. But somebody would have stood with him: his court-appointed Roman advocate, and this book is his story. I believe his name was Theophilus, the man who defended the world's greatest missionary in front of the world's cruelest tyrant."

Saving Amelie
by Cathy Gohlke

In the newest historical novel from award-winning author Cathy Gohlke (Promise Me This, Band of Sisters), Rachel Kramer, the daughter of a prominent American eugenics researcher, accompanies her father on a trip to Germany in 1939. While she's there, a mysterious note from an estranged friend launches her on a quest to discover the true nature of the research. Rachel is already growing suspicious of the project when she learns that her friend's daughter, Amelie, is deaf, and therefore in danger of being "eliminated" as a flawed specimen in Hitler's insane quest for a perfect Aryan race. But once she starts opening doors, Rachel learns more secrets than she bargained for—and puts her own life in grave danger.

For an intense and moving tale of loss, survival, and faith, read Saving Amelie. Learn more about Cathy and her writing at authorcathygohlke.com.
