Go With ... God, Hogan, and The Hybrid
.
Go with God, Hogan, and The Hybrid is J. Michael Meadows' first book and showcases his life experiences in the context of stories, truths, and wisdom related to golf and the role it has played in his life.  
.
The Hybrid is the most important addition to your life and to your game. "God is not who we think He is, but who He reveals Himself to be in the Bible" and "God has a plan for each one of us. Therefore, it is important that we make sure our belief system about God is rooted in God's revelation of himself and not on human speculation about God".
.
This Book is filled with dozens of stories of golf's greats―Hogan, Trevino, Palmer, Floyd and many others―who have crossed paths with Meadows as he's traveled and played life's fairways. Go with God… is humorous, nostalgic, insightful, and empowering. 
.
The author, who has escorted hundreds of golfers to Scotland and Ireland with his Golf in the Kingdom tour and golf travel company, shares numerous insights from a lifetime in business and golf. Readers will enjoy and come to embrace his Southern style (and -isms), as well as the family, faith, and systematic foundations upon which he has built a rich and rewarding life. Whether it's stories about Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and their impact on the game of golf, Meadows' founding The U.S. Screen Door Open Golf Championship, corporate life with IBM, Xerox, and Exxon, and life as an entrepreneur, readers will be engaged and entertained.
.
Meadows shares personal successes and failures as well as some truths of mental attitude dynamics and spirituality that have sustained him as he's traveled the fairways of life. He calls it "living a normal life... in an extraordinary way". Everyone knows something about God but to know God is impossible apart from The Word of God, The Mind of Christ through the perception and application of Bible Doctrine from Christ, THE PERFECT HYBRID.
.
Michael Meadows is an avid, low-handicap golfer, a member of Phoenix Country Club in Phoenix, Arizona and The St. Andrews Golf Club in Scotland. Golf and business have taken him around the world and were the foundations for hisencounterswith legendary golfers like Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and many others. Go with God, Hogan, and The Hybrid is Meadows’ first book and, in a style all his own, he shares the truths and wisdom of the experiences that have shaped his life.

Pathway to Promise: Learning to Overcome by James Brunetto is an amazing short and easy-to-understand ten chapter lesson guide designed to help one learn to move forward when one has become stuck, disillusioned, disappointed, etc. in their God-given mandate that seems to be more of an impossibility.
.
Written by a pastor with much life experience and wisdom, he gives readers the tools and Biblical teaching that makes being a powerful person of faith and learning to be an overcomer attainable. 
.
The author explains that waiting for the promises are not what one is to do, but running after them and moving forward, is the 
only way to learn to overcome. This book will change and transform your life that brings eternal rewards. He encourages all Christians that each person has a life mission and God-given mandate, yet so many give up when difficulties come. His word to you in this book is…Learn how to overcome and make the promises of God a reality in your life!”
.
Encapsulated within the 10 short chapters, the author presents a “pathway to the promises” that will renovate readers’ thinking (and doing). He states that so many have given up, settled for “complacency and mediocrity”. His book offers new hope and a new life to the promises of God with such valuable chapters as: Learn to Overcome, Value the Valley, Develop a Breakthrough Attitude, Build Momentum, Learn to Engage, Learn to Move in Power, Be a Person of Faith, Be a Person of Prayer, Be a Person of the Spirit, Be a Person of Sacrifice. Readers will find this book to be a catalyst to lift them out of their struggles, enemy attacks, and disappointment that also ushers in fresh vision, focus, encouragement and hope that lead to mission and ministry coming into fruition.
.
I cannot recommend this book enough! Aspects of prayer, faith, and holiness shed light on a surprising read that includes such powerful lessons, insights and treasures from the Bible. He teaches from experience and assists readers to help them grab onto God, gain momentum in God’s ways and His promises. Hope and faith come alive. Such Biblical heroes bring great hope and faith, such as: David, Apostle Paul, the Disciples, all springing forth from the ministry of Jesus.  
.
Throughout his book, the author has given the roadmap to “failure is not an option.” And within such, revealing the nature of Satan and his temptations, as a mere twisting of the truth…bringing in deception. He makes an eye-opening statement in the later chapter, “Every temptation is Satan’s invitation to do things your own way instead of God’s way.” This is an incredible statement for those who would be willing to apply understanding. Within that, he offers snapshots and a chapter in the book revealing the enemy’s tactics as the “Tempter” and “Accuser of the Brethren” that showcase classic strategies of Satan, unveiling examples of compromise that are written in the Bible, so that readers can glean from these important lessons.

A must read. A supernatural thriller. A titanic clash between good and evil. An unexpected love story.  Is the concept of Hidden Thrones purely fiction? You decide. Enjoy this newly updated version of Hidden Thrones. Although the genre is Christian Futuristic the world it depicts is closer to reality than most of us want to admit. This book contains no profanity and no embarrassing sex scenes. However, if you're offended by Christian principles and references to Scripture, this book might not be for you. Then again.

Jesus Christ The Only Truth! Jesus Christ is not just one who teaches the truth of God; He is the truth. Christ is the embodiment of the truth. Those who come to Jesus Christ have the truth of Christ. The Father is in Him and He is in the Father. Christ is the truth of God. The full truth of Jesus Christ and His deity, and His unity with the Father is incomparable and incomprehensible. Jesus Christ is the truth because He is the radiance of the Father; full of grace and truth. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Believe in Him and you will have the truth that will set you free.

Pain with Purpose by Rachel Adcock offers an overview of her life memoir that reveals a purpose for pain and suffering that can bring forth hope and freedom in Christ. With that in mind, she shares her life story, struggles, sickness, mistakes and hindsight that culminate to a wonderful end. 
.
She boldly states, “Live life with the optimism that there is a purpose for your pain and a better outcome in the future.” Readers will gain insight and encouragement as the author shares her battle with cancer as a child, life challenges, and mistakes that caused suffering. In the hope of helping others to go forward in their lives, she gives readers an understanding that there is purpose in pain and a brighter future ahead. She teaches how to view life with optimism, which is wonderfully refreshing.
.
With great care, practicality and honesty, she offers insight to the benefit to life’s challenges, realizing that others have had it worse. Her life story displays how pain does reveal a greater purpose, brings spiritual maturity, and can be used by God to bring healing, to include a benefit to others. Her book offers comfort in the fact that life does go on and it can be for the better. With such chapters as: Sicker than Sick, Boys Will be Boys, Calling it Quits, More Mistakes, Surviving the Single Life, Second Chances & Keeping the Faith, readers will find encouragement, hope and confidence for their future.
.
Rachel’s story will captivate and encourage readers so that they can go on. She is an optimist at heart and teaches others how to think more positively and gain insight from past challenges. Her book is full of wisdom from many years experience through difficult trials. Coupled with wonderful quotes and sprinkled with some scripture verses, this book is well-done, speaks frankly and is not an overly “preachy” autobiography. She reaches out to others in a unique way through “Reflections” at the end of each chapter. In this way, she shares her own insight from past events, the benefits from hindsight, and concludes with discussion questions for the reader as an opportunity to increase in their own growth and maturity. 
.
This is a highly recommended read for those that have experienced pain and suffering and are looking for hope with a renewed perspective on life and painful experiences.

The Sons of God, a book that is full of holiness and indignation at the same time. This book represents a two-fold manifesto of the revealing of the last 3 Trumpets (the last three woe’s) in the Book of Revelation and a call for repentance to all who do not follow Christ.
.
His first chapter “A Tale of Two Cities” speaks to those who are of the world (Babylon) and those who have been called out of the world, yet still exist in the world as followers of Christ. These two cities (or two groups of people) face choices that have consequences for eternity, but also in the near future. He further states that we are living in the Book of Revelation right now and that the Book of Revelation is not some time in the future but unfolding before our very eyes. With this in mind, his book offers somewhat of a discourse on the upcoming Christian revolution with exciting prophecy revealed as the 3 woe’s. An invitation is given as well to come into the Kingdom, to know Christ, to save yourself from the coming wrath of the Lord upon the entire Earth, so that you may be spared eternal damnation and the full wrath of God.
.
His book packs punch after punch! The author does not hold back in professing righteousness, calling evil for what it is and naming erroneous and egregious sins that have overtaken many, to include prevalence in our Western society. Issues such as gay marriage, homosexuality, abortion, murder, fornication, adultery, atheism, along with the culture of violence, war and murder that is so commonplace, shedding light that God Almighty does not delight in any of these abominations. Further mentioning idols such as entertainment and media, the love of money, selfish pride, celebrity fanfare and glory, only to reveal the rightful place of women and men among society paints a grim picture of today’s society. Yet, there is hope; that hope is found in the forgiveness of sins through salvation a proclamation of Jesus Christ as one’s Lord and Savior. Hope is found in following Jesus, choosing faith and learning to endure to the end. He gives strategies, scripture verses and instruction on becoming strong in faith and knowledge so that one will be able to stand until the end and persevere. He gives strong warnings that the faint at heart will not survive.
.
This book represents a wake-up call to all (including Christians and the complacent) who are of this world to make a choice: Are you for Jesus or against Him? He exhorts all to take a stand now for Christ and speaks of the times we are living in to be the End Times and that the great End Time Harvest is soon to come with the Great Tribulation. He calls all to make a choice for their own eternity and implores all who don’t believe or who are in sin to repent.
.
Yet, he ends his discourse with an end of speaking to those who will not give their hearts to Jesus fully and shifts his attention to the Bride of Christ, to encourage, refine, teach and to prepare them for what is coming up ahead.

Sword of the Spirit by Mark Norris  

A Must Read Book - To most in the Realm of Drugolin, otherly spirit lore lingered as mysterious legends best suited for late night hearths. On rare occasions one might hear of strange visitations. Some of huge, radiant beings bearing aid and guidance. Others of dark, evil creatures summoning dread and death. All were a part of Drugolish legend, but few took them seriously.
.
The westland village of Noy couldn’t afford the apathy of its unenlightened, middleland neighbors. Its enclosing fortress walls stood as a monument to the frightening visitations it experienced, day and night.
.
When the town’s most celebrated otherly adventurer receives a prophetic lamp, he teams with one final group on a faith empowering mission into the dread regions of evil that could usher in an eternal age where mortals are like angels and God reigns supreme.
.
Yahwin (God), Krystos (Jesus), Sahron (Satan), a host of otherly foes, warrior angels, and warrior prophets endued with extraordinary power all inhabit this peculiar realm in which author Mark Norris tells an eschatological tale that wars for the Millennium’s victor’s rights.
.
What would you do if an angel materialized in your bedroom tonight, handed you a prophetic lampstand that projected the events of Satan’s rebellion, and invited you to brave the powers of hell?  ................. The otherly is waiting,…will you go?
.
What others say about Sword of the Spirit:
.
In Sword of the Spirit, Mark takes us on an intense and imaginative quest that parallels our own lives. A great piece of work that captivates the reader while increasing our ability to remain free from the schemes of darkness. I love  it. It is lush in imagery.“ ~ Gary Crawford
.
This book really made me think. It delves into spiritual warfare, and considers some of the ways God could anoint believers who resist the enemy in the last days. This book challenged me to believe God for some things I had never considered before. But, it is also a good story. It has plenty of action and I found it hard to put down. I recommend it!” ~ Tom Miller

The Sword of Solomon by Nick Gasaway is an explorative piece relating the story of King David and his son, Solomon in the Bible through a presentation of a “modern-day depiction of good vs. evil.” Fast-paced and imaginative, the question that comes forth from the book is one of choice…will you accept Jesus or reject Him?
.
First following a Biblical parallel from King David and Solomon, these modern-day characters highlight Solomon, the world’s first trillionaire. Blessed with incredible wisdom and ingenuity, riches and corporate know-how, Solomon is led to focusing on his father’s (David’s) journal. Solomon’s reflection, admiration and perspective of his father give life to David’s accomplishments before he died. Looking back, Solomon vows to keep track of all who helped his father David (just as the King David honored Jonathan’s descendants in Scripture).
.
With a woven tapestry of descriptive imagery, readers from the beginning are given a glimpse of the immensity of not only Solomon’s wealth and prestige, but his deep desire for the things of God, including his integrity as his father’s son. Much like, what we see in the Bible coming from King David and Solomon (who asked for only wisdom, yet was granted wisdom and riches by the Lord). Solomon is a wise man dedicated to the fulfilling the Lord’s purpose for him.
.
His father, David, was a military hero, his sword that hung steadfastly on the wall in Solomon’s study, lends to incredible significance, but also as a memorial to his father, David. Intriguing sub-plots of a DNA activated crystal, including End Time scenarios of a one world government, leading to a global economic breakdown leading to a global economy under a global leader sheds light into possible End Time scenarios that gain strength in the end of the book. Inclusion of inspiring and profound scripture verses, memorable sayings garnered from such famous individuals such as: Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, George S. Patton, also create a vividly clear picture that shares a fascinating and progressive story.
.
Notably, this book was written to impact others in a profound way…and asks, “Are you ready? Prepare for I am coming soon.” This was spoken to the author, coupled with a dream, gave him the inspiration to writing this book..
.
Highly recommended for those that like Christian fiction novels that give hope, light and peace in choosing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. And for all those warriors and military buffs out there…you’ll love this book! A CBM Christian Book Review ~ 10.0 out of 10.0 stars
