Who is a Perfect Man? Who is a Perfect Woman? by Bamidele Kings is a Bible study series of Psalm 15, coupled with examples from Scripture, examples and personal experience that will encourage readers to study the Word of God and bring a closer walk God. Derived from his own personal trials, the knowledge and insight the author offers sheds light on using the Bible as our foundation from which to live from. His insight and knowledge of the Scriptures, coupled with true Biblical examples and teachings help readers understand Jesus Christ and encourage all to be intimate with God on a personal level.

With such powerful, life-changing chapters as: The Soveriegn God, El Roi – the God who sees me, The Lord Who Sanctifies, El Elohe Yiserael – God, The God of Israel, Jehovah Tsidkenu-The Lord our Righteousness, The Lord Who Sanctifies, Jehovah Rohi –The Lord is My Shepherd, The Adoni –The Lord My Great, God is Love, Thou Shall be a Good Minister!, The Priesthood of Jesus Christ, Jehovah Shalom-The Lord is Peace, this book will re-focus you!

Title: Echoes From the Past:
A Young Man’s Search for Love and Identity
By: Moboni Lewis
ISBN #978-1-62676-901-4
A CBM Book Review
9.9 out of 10.0 stars
.
Echoes From the Past: A Young Man’s Search for Love and Identity by Moboni Lewis reflects life’s paths through a Christian fiction novel based upon the scripture verse in Genesis 50:20 (paraphrased), “What the enemy meant for evil, the Lord turned around for good.”  
.
Offering readers hope in the Lord, the author presents a mixture of intrigue, true life tragedies of domestic violence and betrayal wrapped into the life and mystery of a fast-paced plot. Readers come to understand that Echoes from the past may sometimes overshadow, but with the Lord’s help, He can work all things together for good. (Romans 8:28)
.
Henry Doe finds new beginnings after being abandoned by his birth father, and sent to live with his aunt at the age of 7. Years later, after making some bad choices, Henry finds himself judged by some of the town church folk and soon becomes homeless. Bitterness overtakes him, and a life of crime and gangs suddenly looks appealing. Within this story, Henry eventually comes to his senses, finds love and identity in a new beginning in a marriage and ministry. But not before a slew of persecutions, false accusations and even a prison sentence turns his new life upside down – except for one thing – God’s hand upon his life.
.
Despite Henry’s past, this book sheds light on the hope that is available in the Lord and in His ways. The author helps others understand that the Lord does in fact work all things out for our good.
.
This book comes highly recommended to dads, sons and fathers, displaying how rejection, violence and selfish ways take their tolls upon families. With that in mind, the author writes to all the Henry Does out there who have been betrayed, rejected and mistreated by family and the church, encouraging them to find a new life in the Lord and His ways. A great read!

Comment by CBM Christian Book Marketing on August 20, 2017 at 12:13am
The Re-Creation of Planet Earth and Real Account of Life’s Beginnings by Brian Donnelly shares insight into the Earth’s age, Creation, science, evolution, the Big Bang theory and the beginning of life.  Also sharing God, Jesus and insight into Heaven, makes this a book that pits itself against any other theory other than Biblical creation, giving research, history and research.
.
The author’s main goal is to give readers the facts of evolution in a language that is easily understood by most, and to let them decide for themselves using logic, science and the Scriptures. He has written a book that causes people to think about “what” they are believing in when speaking of the thought that humans came from apes, and mentions other theories as well. His writing shows that evolution and other theories by scientists, disproves itself.
.
Beginning with Earth’s age, the author asks a poignant question. One that I think most Christians have asked: “Have you wondered why there is such a huge discrepancy regarding the age of our planet?” As scientists have claimed, the Earth’s age is 4.6 billion years, yet the Bible refers to planet Earth as only being six thousand years old. Revealing a study through the book of Genesis, the author sets the stage for the understanding that Creation is a viable theory.
.
Summarizing such events as Adam and Eve giving birth to the first generation Cain and Abel, to Noah and the Flood, the book skips along at a fast-paced, keeping readers attention. Continuing to trace the origins of the “Out of Africa” movement created by Darwin, the author propagates his attention to the details of their arguments. Analyzing, how this actually could happen without becoming overly scientific, so all of us can understand.
.
This is a great and relatively short read that directs people to look up, at God, at Jesus, describes what Heaven is like and gives them an understanding that makes sense. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wonders: Where and how did we get here? Within this, the author is courageous enough to state his mind and that he believes humans did not come from apes!  Adding some humor throughout, readers will appreciate the author’s integrity on a man’s attention and dedication and family, gives insight into the unfair spread of wealth and speaks to those who have a heart to do something.

By: Piely Paul

10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Restored in His Presence: Finding Peace and Joy at the Master’s Feet by Piely Paul is designed as a yearly daily devotional that sheds light on God’s unfailing Word, His promises of protection, safety, peace and love that are available for each one of us. As a Devotional, the book begins on January 1 and ends on December 31st. The book is unique in that the author keeps to theme of restoring, peace, joy and hope.

.
With hand-selected scripture verses, this book facilitates trust and leaning in on Jesus, just as the Apostle John did. Fresh insights bring renewed hope and life that help readers understand many different facets of redemption and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. The book reveals Jesus in such a way as the Good Shepard and the Savior of our souls that it brings understanding and revelation to the reader.

With Biblically sound doctrine, the author has combined spiritual truths that add to the book, sharing the promises we have on Earth now, as well as for eternity.
.
Redemption, the joy of salvation, and restoration make this book, an excellent book for someone needing hope and encouragement. This daily devotional makes for an enjoyable read that helps bring Christian focus on Jesus and His Word and His promises that speak of joy, healing, hope, salvation and safety in Him. 
.
A highly recommended daily devotional!

Title: Demon Portals: 
A Psychic Medium’s Path to Deliverance
By: Timna Pilch
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Demon Portals: A Psychic Medium’s Path to Deliverance by Timna Pilch reveals the dangers of dabbling in the paranormal, psychic divination, and occult practices. As one who practiced divination, and had a wide-range of experience as a Psychic Medium, the paranormal, demons, visitations and hauntings, this book is an eye-opener.  Her knowledge in occultic practices will surprise many and leave many who read it in awe of the deception and ways that demonic entities infiltrate our lives. Her main purpose in writing this book is to shed light into God’sTruth from The Holy Bible of the absolute dangers and warnings that God gives to those who would continue to dabble in paganism and occultic practices. Revealing just how dangerous this is, her story unveils the supernatural realm, patterns of demons, and the reality of good versus evil that clears the confusion about the paranormal, ghosts, spirits, hauntings, demon possession and entanglement, that offers to readers hope in a future with Christ while simultaneously offering a keen understanding of the invisible world and the battle for our souls.
.
Beginning with an overview of her childhood, she starts with her birth. Seemingly born with a deep intuition and empathic abilities, her childhood reveals much suffering and trauma that only compounded her emotional state, also being surrounded by demonic entities from birth, that took her down a dark path in life. Explaining her gifts, as what she calls prescience and being an empath, also gave her a unique insight of the supernatural realm, in which most do not experience. Her experiences, pictures and choices only reveal a deeper understanding to readers of the deception and influence the demonic realm has upon our lives, thoughts and spirits through various means.
.
Her true story is fascinating and her book helps those who are deceived to find truth in the God’s Ways, His Word and the salvation and grace offered to them with a new life in Christ. Additionally, as a Vegan, her book offers further insight into the character of animals, their suffering and advocates “non-consumption” of animal meat and by-products, such as milk and cheese. Christians will be intrigued and find much Biblical foundation and insight into the demonic realm that will give them a better understanding of demons, and for those who are dabbling in witchcraft and the occult, they will understand that they are literally “opening up” demonic portals into their life. Her book gives advice on the only way to get free – Repentance, Redemption, water baptism, prayer and living God’s way of life.

Title: Responsive Readings for the Modern Church
By: David Rhodes
ISBN#978-1-4566-2661-7
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Responsive Readings for the Modern Church by David Rhodes is: “A study in the relationships between Bible scriptures in a responsive reading format for use in corporate worship or personal study.” Using key words, this study is similar to a concordance, wherein a person can look up scriptures references. Gleaning from subjects pertinent to each book, the author has selected verses that impact faith, belief, and daily living that give a wide-range of subjects from such books such as: Psalms and Proverbs, with over a thousand footnotes that add to the versatility, incorporating the Old and New Testament books. This book fosters a time for study and meditation in God’s Word that will increase faith and nourishes the soul with the premise that God’s Word is alive and active.
.
To use this book, readers can simply look up a subject that interests them or perhaps a word like hope. Designed for reflective reading, this is an easy and vital way to study scripture verses that instill hope, encouragement and helps anchor the soul through Jesus Christ and the Word. In the eBook format readers are able to click directly on the footnotes link which will lead them to the WEB (World English Version) online for further study.
.
Such subjects as: angel, anger, apostle, believe, born, children, chosen, create, David, eternal, faith, forgive, free, God, great, Heaven, holy, hope, Jacob, Jesus, Joseph, joy, Kingdom, laugh, light, Lord, love, majesty, mercy, nothing, peace, power, pray, righteous, sacrifice, salvation, silence, sin, spirit, thanks, water, wisdom, word, work, worship, evil, fool, gold, good, man, the righteous and the  wicked, and so much more, provide a wide spectrum of the scripture verses that speak of Christian values, morals, choosing life and implores readers to live by the Word. As humans, we tend to forget- this book is a good reminder of God’s wisdom that is written onto the tablets of our hearts.
.
Developed for corporate study or personal reflection, this book is a quick way to ingest the Word and memorize scripture verses to be encouraged and inspired through the Word of God.

The Splitting of the Adam:
It’s Time to Awaken

Don Felumlee
.

More than any inspired sermon or theologically correct teaching, there's but one, prevailing message which clearly emanates throughout the entirety of the scriptures: Our loving, Heavenly Father is desperately yearning to touch his broken and fallen creation!

.

Before this can happen, however, from the chosen mouthpiece of a prophetic, firstfruits company, there must first and foremost resound an eye-opening message of earth-shaking significance, for the somber, sleeping church--which he shall ultimately work through--must first be awakened into the image of God! A splitting of the Adam must eventually take place within the ever-longing hearts of his beloved children! Yes indeed, my friend, a splitting of the Adam must inevitably take place within you!
.

Join us now, if you dare, beloved, as author and teacher Don Felumlee proclaims a fresh, divine perspective of the coming of the Lord!

The Unexpected Visitation by Stephen M. Grimble presents to readers an intriguing Christian fiction novel told from a Catholic viewpoint. Christmas Eve, 2032, meet Isabella. Surviving a horrific car crash where her husband, son and unborn child are all killed, this novel speaks the hope of the Gospel through an unbelievable tragedy. Bella, tenaciously choosing faith, this book draws readers into Bella’s world, as she receives an assignment from an unexpected visitation. She meets Jesus, face-to-face as He returns, visiting her church. Called to follow Him, become an apostle, and write the basic tenants of the Christian faith in a 12-step summarization, the author takes readers on a fascinating journey into faith and the Good News of the Gospel.
.
Set in a world of skepticism, sin and faithlessness, the author asks the question: “If Christ came again, would you believe or would you doubt or deny Him, as did so many people two millennia ago?” His book is written for believers and non-believers alike, and presents an adventure, a journey of faith into the heart of the Gospel of Christ, Jesus, the Son of God, His teachings and His status as the only One True God, prodding those who would not believe, and inviting all into taking a look into who Jesus is. Also, shedding light on lukewarm Christianity, giving faith a chance to flourish, as Bella brings revival, miracles at the direction of Jesus to 6 countries around the world.
.
This is a highly recommended Christian fiction novel craftily written that will help those who believe in Christ, yearn for apostleship, signs and wonders and for those who do not believe, a revival and miraculous awakening may occur.
