Ever play king-of-the-mountain when you were young? Most of us have. There is an innate something in all of us that enjoys scrambling to the top of a heap and lifting our hands in victory. It's probably why we work in skyscrapers, build hillside homes, and vacation at mountain retreats. By and large, we thrive on elevated views which lift us high above the ordinary vistas of life. It is the ascending factor and we can trace the source to God or Elyon-the Most High! He dwells in the highest, wraps Himself in clouds and meets His servants on the mountaintops of His choosing. This book highlights the life of Caleb, a mighty mountaineer of God who defied the odds to gain higher ground. His faithful exploits offer timeless encouragement to climb further up and closer to the Almighty. He possessed his mountain and you can too! Ascend! Dr. John Meade currently lives with his wife Pina and two sons Joseph and Jonah in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He and Pina are co-founders of JPM Ministries, an international ministry dedicated to encouraging and building the Body of Christ. John is a retired military officer, pastor, Christian school administrator, counselor and missionary. He earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership through Oral Roberts University located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

ALL people who have more taste than money are as one in the conviction that people with less money than taste suffer more keenly day by day, week by week, year by year, than any other class of human beings. Of this kind of sufferer was Philip Somerton, a young man who had strayed from a far-western country town to New York to develop his individuality and make his fortune, but especially to enjoy the facilities which a great city offers (as every one knows, except the impecunious persons who have tried it) to all whose hearts hunger for whatever is beautiful, refining, and also enjoyable. To some extent Philip had succeeded, for he quickly adapted himself to his new surroundings; and as he was intelligent, industrious, and of good habits, he soon secured a clerkship which enabled him to pay for food, shelter, and clothing, and still have money enough for occasional books and music and theatre tickets, and to purchase a few articles of a class over which the art editor of Philip's favorite morning newspaper raved delightfully by the column. Several years later he was still more fortunate; for he met Grace Brymme, a handsome young woman who had quite as much intelligence and taste as he, and who, like Philip, had been reared in a country town. That in New York she was a saleswoman in a great shop called a "department store" was not in the least to her discredit; for she was an orphan, and poor, and with too much respect to allow herself to be supported by relatives as poor as she, or to be "married off" for the sole purpose of securing a home. When Philip declared his love and blamed himself for having formed so strong an attachment before he had become financially able to support a wife in the style to which his sweetheart's refinement and cleverness entitled her, the young woman, who was quite as deep in love as he, replied that in so large a city no one knew the affairs of inconspicuous people, so there was no reason why they should not marry, and she retain her business position and salary under the only name by which her employers and business associates would know her, and together they would earn a modest competence against the glorious by and by.

Frank May practices law the safe, routine way: wills, trusts, business law, books, forms, and documents. At least that's the way he wants it.... But clients and life don't always oblige. Frank avoids murder cases like most people avoid the dentist. That's not so easy to do when a dead body shows up during his routine appointment for a teeth cleaning, and he is thrust into an investigation that bridges his law practice. He needs to get to the root of this death. That will take more than scraping the surface of a dental practice with deep secrets and suspicious characters — or the nearby, bizarre Xyloquex Corporation. If Frank May is up to the task, he seems to be the last one to know it. A new QP Mystery, in the series The Frank May Chronicles. Other novels in the series include The Book Club Murder, Death of a Wannabe, Death of a One-Sided Man, and An Unnatural Death.
