A Freethinker’s Gospel
By Chris Highland
Pisgah Press, 2018
A former Protestant minister and prison chaplain, Chris Highland is now a secular freethinker who muses on the natural world, on being a nonbeliever in a highly religious society, and the commonalities shared between religions. This compilation of essays offers his reflections on interfaith work, the search for self-discovery, and the commonalities that bind us regardless of social, political, economic, or religious backgrounds. His insights about the marvelous structure of our natural world and what nature can teach us, and the way our society is structured, addressing humanism, the natural world, and sensitive issues of faith, are enlightening and challenging.
Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again!
By Marty Essen
$14.95 (paperback), $4.99 (Kindle)
Encante Press, 2019
Marty Mann and Nellie Dixon are back for another irreverent, liberal, twisty, time-travel comedy. The book is thought-provoking satire that answers the question, “What would happen if Jesus time traveled to 2020 America?” Would today’s evangelical Christians accept a profanity-loving brown-skinned Jesus, who preached in favor of liberal values? Find out in this hilarious sequel.
Feel the Spin
By Marshall Moskow

A young science professor faces off against ignorance and bigotry in South Carolina 10 years after the end of the American Civil War. Thomas Walters has joined the faculty of Tideland College in the fall of 1875 as professor of the recently introduced disciplines of natural philosophy and astronomy.
