• Where Hope Grows —released in theatres nationwide Friday, May 15. Where Hope Grows is the story of Calvin Campbell, a pro baseball player and single father who finds life spinning out of control. Having washed out of the major leagues, lacking purpose and quickly becoming estranged from his teenage daughter, he finds a friend in the most unlikely of people, Produce, a young man with Down Syndrome. Seeing the world through Produce's eyes Calvin slowly loses the chip on his shoulder. PTM is pleased to help spread the good news of this high quality movie. It is light on clichés and hokey stuff that tends to characterize many "Christian" movies. It doesn't drip with goo and syrup. Unlike many "and they lived happily ever after" Christian movies Where Hope Grows feels authentic, like real people and real, unadulterated life. It comes with the highest recommendation of CWR/PTM. Watch trailer on YouTube.

• A More Christlike God: A new book from CWRpress, A More Christlike God, written by Senior Editor Brad Jersak is now available!

He knows the way beyond the parodies of Christianity into the beautiful gospel of a more Christlike God.
