Here are two new titles that have recently released from our CAN authors!
Care to put a little mystery and suspense in your holiday shopping? Try Pendant, a new

onto a vital clue–and discovers someone is desperate to keep the truth hidden. When her life is threatened, she allows the one person she trusts to whisk her away to safety in Texas. But assuming a false identity and hiding among the quirky residents of a retirement home is not what she had in mind. Now, Elaine must solve the mystery from afar, as soon as she figures out if her friends is keeping her from danger…or keeping her from the truth.

Vindicating the Vixens: Revisiting Sexualized, Vilified, and Marginalized Women of the Bible
by Sandra Glahn
Kregel Academic, November 2017
Did the Samaritan woman really divorce five husbands in a world in which women rarely divorced even one? Did Bathsheba seduce King David by bathing in the nude? Was Mary Magdalene really a reformed prostitute? While many have written studies of the women in the Bible, Vindicating the Vixens: Revisiting Sexualized, Vilified, and Marginalized Women of the Bible is a new kind of book—one in which a diverse team of male and female scholars look afresh at women in the Bible whose stories we have misunderstood. The result is a new glimpse into God’s heart for anyone, male or female, who has limited social power. (Profits from this work benefit the International Justice Mission.)
Dr. Sandra L. Glahn, general editor, is a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS). Dr. Glahn is the author or coauthor of more than twenty books, including the Coffee Cup Bible Study series. She is also a regular blogger for bible.org‘s Engage blog for women in Christian leadership. You can find more about her at www.aspire2.com.
