Editorial Reviews


"Sometimes all you need is a reminder that there is something good in the world. A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider: Words to Stimulate the Mind and Delight the Spirit is a combination of short stories, poetry, and works of memoir picked for their inspirational nature, dedicated to finding a shining light in our lives that so often turn dark. The stories within are touching and poignant, and will help readers remember that there is something after the worst of it all. A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is a follow up to the previous acclaimed volume, and the sequel executes the original's purpose masterfully."  -- Midwest Book Review

"Some books surprise you with their ability to take your breath away. This anthology is such a book: 51 short pieces--fiction, non-fiction, poetry and even a play --

"I was impressed with the honesty and transparency, especially in the true stories. We meet a host of fellow Canadians - our neighbours! - whose lives are as unpredictable as our own. A mother of young children gets a diagnosis of cancer. A 36-year-old magazine editor has a stroke. A man who was forced to take early retirement asks what's next? A woman prays for patience and a few days later breaks her back. A man tries to surprise his wife with a five-day bathroom renovation. What binds all the pieces together is a cord of faith as we see how God is involved in the very real circumstances of life." -- Faith Today


"What a great book! Cozy reading that’s warming like apple cider, but also energizing like the best caffeine! A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider will give you a refreshing lift and a change of perspective, perhaps when you need it most."
- Ellen Vaughan, New York Times bestselling author and inspirational speaker.

“Who doesn’t always need a second cup? And this is one cup worth reaching for. From a host of talented writers who serve rich words, wrap your hands around a volume that will not only warm you right through, but strengthen you for the road ahead. A perfectly inspiring read.”
- Ann Voskamp, author of New York Times bestseller, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

“This book is easy to pick up and tough to put down. You’ll love these stories of love, faith, and hope. Thank God for second helpings!”
- Phil Callaway, bestselling author of To Be Perfectly Honest

“The writers in this book share their finely-honed stories with an honesty and vulnerability that touches a universal chord in readers. Whether the setting is a remote farm on the Prairies, a First Nations community in Canada’s Far North, a multi-cultural kindergarten in Toronto, a lonely highway in Nova Scotia, an isolation ward of a children’s hospital, a blinding snowstorm in Québec, or a crammed church auditorium in British Columbia―you’ll find these stories lingering in your mind as fresh evidences of God’s grace.”
- Ginger Kolbaba, Founding Editor of, Christianity Today International; author of Desperate Pastors’ Wives

“This collection of wonderful writing from a variety of voices is honest, personal, and compelling. Stoke the fire, put up your feet, and open this book. Like me, you’ll be comforted, inspired, and encouraged. I felt as if God were reading over my shoulder.”
- Michael Messenger, Executive VP, World Vision Canada

“This book is great food for the soul, with practical applications to help navigate life’s daily challenges and turbulences. It gives hope for those in despair and helps to build the faith of its readers. Its engaging writers make a deep impact as they articulate their individual experiences simply yet profoundly―enabling all levels of readers to appreciate the stories and draw their own life lessons. This comforting and encouraging book should be in every home, library, church, and school.”
- Pauline Christian, President, Black Business and Professional Association; one of Canada’s Top 20 Women in 2010 as selected by Women’s Post; recipient of African Canadian Achievement Award for Business

“Like a heart-to-heart conversation with a close friend, A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider draws us into the intimacy of relationship with one another and our Creator. As you traverse this wonderful collection of significant moments in the lives of ordinary people, you’ll be inspired by God’s extraordinary grace. Enjoy. You’ll be warmed and filled.”
- Karen Bjerland, President and CEO, FaithLife Financial

“A refreshing taste of life―its challenges and joys, disappointments and small victories. Its genuine honesty encourages us that we are not alone in the challenges and struggles we all share.”
- Jean Chamberlain Froese, MD, recipient of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada’s Teasdale-Corti Humanitarian Award; Executive Director, Save the Mothers program (East Africa)

“A soul-stirring spiritual refill of this beloved modern classic! Don’t be mistaken―these aren’t frothy tales boasting syrupy platitudes: these homegrown stories capture both the grit and inspiring reality of Canadians who live out their faith, seeing God at work in their lives and the world around them.”
- Michelle Nagle, Executive Director, Women Alive

“With moments of humour, struggle, romance, courage, heartache, and ultimately hope, A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is rich with buoyant prose and wondrous poetry… From slices of real life to flights of fancy, this cup runneth over with chapter after chapter of great reading.”
- Martin Smith, President, GMA Canada

“Several of these authors have shared their personal faith journey on my 100 Huntley Street interview couch. Their writer’s craft is as soul-warming as curling up in a handmade afghan with a fireside mug of cider. Whatever the season of the year, or the season of your life―whether for your own nurture, or as a hug from heaven for a friend―the publishers have given us a refreshing refill of Canadiana at its best!”
- Moira Brown, Co-Host of 100 Huntley Street and regular participant on Full Circle daily television shows

“The stories are a strong sampling of the talents of… writers who exemplify the character and perseverance that has been instrumental in the success of the growth of Christian literature in our country in the past decade. The writers in this new collection constantly exhibit standards of excellence in communicating the Christian message in a Canadian context.”
- Larry Willard, Co-Owner, Faith Family Books & Gifts, Toronto; Owner and Publisher, Castle Quay Books Canada and BayRidge Books

“A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is a delightful read. This heartwarming and comforting anthology is just what we need to remind ourselves that God is willingly present in every facet of our lives. Well done!”
- Karen Burke, Director of JUNO Award winning Toronto Mass Choir; Professor of Music, York University

“The wise man of Israel observed that there is no end of making books. Not that there are too many books, but that books must be selected with great care―they should be “goads and nails,” provocative and assuring. A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider will stir some of your complacent reveries, but will be an anchor to understand eternal values.”
- August H. Konkel, PhD, President, Providence College and Seminary

“Day after day, as we live our lives, we’re creating new stories. A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is a well-written collection of short pieces that reflect this reality. I identified with many of the characters, and found the stories inspiring and motivating. I highly recommend this volume.”
- Lando Klassen, bookseller (38 years), House of James, Abbotsford, B.C.

“You’ll find stories to tug at your heart and inspire you, stories that will make you smile, and stories that might just fill your eyes with tears. For this is a book that explores the human condition―how we as people suffer and how we celebrate. The works are culled from both the imagination, and from real life, as it is lived by Canadians who know their God… You just might find your own faith renewed.”
- Patricia Paddey, Senior Producer, Listen Up TV; writer on faith issues for Canada’s Christian and mainstream media

“I’ve been drawn back to this book many times. The stories touched me deeply and I envision myself using them as sermon illustrations in the coming days. I enjoyed it tremendously and will highly recommend this easy-reading book to my colleagues.”
- Alex Pacis, WorldTeam Canada Field Director; Executive Director of Church Planting Ministries Inc.; Chairman of the Board of Emmanuel Relief and Rehabilitation Philippines

“This anthology is a beautiful offering by an array of gifted Canadian Christian writers. You will be inspired and comforted by the heartwarming stories, soothing words, and uplifting experiences shared from varied perspectives by these godly women and men. This book offers refreshing encouragement to the very depths of your mind and spirit!”
- Audrey Meisner, Co-Host, It’s a New Day television program; author; speaker
