Love Once More

(The Abundance Series Book 4)

by Sally Bayless

Love Once More

Two orphaned babies, one overwhelmed uncle, one former fiancée…

One way or another, freelance editor Kristen Hamlin will keep her word. She promised to raise her best friend’s baby girls, should the need ever arise, and she meant it. Obviously, the twins should never be given to their workaholic uncle. After all, he’s the same man who broke his engagement to Kristen so he could spend more time with his real love—computers. But when tragedy strikes, leaving the twins as orphans, Kristen discovers that the paperwork was never done. He’s the legal guardian.

Entrepreneur Clay Norris has his hands full, taking care of his twin nine-month-old nieces, not to mention running his computer-gaming company. To make matters worse, his former fiancée claims she should have been given custody of the twins—not him—and has now suddenly moved in next door. Coincidence? He thinks not.

Once the demands of looking after two infants require a team effort, Clay and Kristen are inevitably drawn together. Old feelings rekindle, but the couple struggles to move beyond painful mistakes from the past. As circumstances conspire against them, can they learn to forgive one another, accept God’s limitless grace, and find the courage to take a chance on love once more?

“Love Once More” is a stand-alone contemporary Christian romance novel and is part of the Abundance Series by Sally Bayless. If you like a sweet, small-town romance, you’ll love this uplifting novel about a couple given a second chance at love.

The Permissive Sense

Hints and Helps to Bible Interpretation

by Troy Edwards

The Permissive Sense

One does not have to read too far into the Bible to find that it says the following about Him:

God hardened people’s hearts.
God put lying spirits in the mouth of false prophets.
God personally deceived prophets.
God Blinded people to the truth.
God inflicted sickness.
God sent natural disasters.
God moved people to sin.
God tempted men.
God intentionally gave men unrighteous laws.
God created evil.
And even more….

Such statements have presented insurmountable difficulties to Bible readers. Failure to understand them properly have led to doctrines that paint God in less than a favorable light. However, when we understand the permissive sense, most difficulties with such verses will disappear. This book will help you understand this important principle and will remove all doubt about God’s love, goodness, and holiness.
