Intertwined lives brings a surprising alliance with God and friends at Alliance Lake.
.
Six teenagers grow up fast as they have to cope with a tragedy that has impacted the entire small town of Alliance, Ohio. Time continues on and so must they. It is time to face the real world. The author offers a reminiscent read that captures past eras, presenting hope, inspiration and encouragement ~ leading others to a renewed life in Jesus, the Son of God.
.
Alliance Lake: Be Still
 by Timothy Jay takes readers back to the 70’s and 80’s, an era long gone by. A time of innocence in America and a time of being a teenager in the 80’s, and young adulthood in the 90’s. Filled with humor and the “old days” nostalgia, mentioning out-dated technology (rotary phones, boom boxes, and arcades, this novel makes remembering these things an enthusiastic and fun experience traveling down memory lane.  
.
Lovingly dedicated to those on their own journey and to those who relied on their own understanding early in life, only to come to a deep dissatisfaction with the outcome, having walked crooked paths (Psalm 3:5-6), this book challenges teens, (and adults alike) to deepen their walk with God. Ushering an understanding that He is a loving God, and they can move forward after tragic loss. Evil is in the world, but it does not overcome us is one of the themes that play throughout the book.
.
Alliance Lake: Be Still 
highlights God in the midst of individuals’ lives and brings them to a place of peace and stillness – slowing down to hear from God.  
.
A wonderful Christian Fiction Novel and must read for the 40 and up crowd! 10.0 stars out of 10.0 stars

If You Truly Loved Christ, You Would Be Keeping More Than Just Ten of His Commandments by Lord S.G. Vanwells speaks to Christians, providing information, and thus encourages maturity in the Body of Christ by helping others to understand what Christ’s commandments are through the application of biblical wisdom.
.
His book speaks to the believer who understands that becoming Christ-like means that you “Do” His commandments, taking seriously the call to be set apart and made holy, just as Scripture denotes that all believers are to partake of becoming Christ-like. First stating that, “The primary goal of this entire writing endeavor . . . is to build your spiritual and heavenly worth by conforming to God and Christ’s stated biblical wishes.” The author builds on Biblical and Hebrew roots of Jesus (Yeshua), using the two names interchangeably. Thus, offering insight into the rich biblical history, location and roots of the Twelve Tribes, to include the branch of religion we call “Christianity”, asking, “What Does it all mean to love Jesus and follow His commandments?” Therefore, challenging modern-day believers to “re-think” what sin is and what does it mean to be righteous.
.
To ask that question, one must know what the expectations are from Yeshua (Jesus). With that in mind, the author takes readers on a journey and offers a look at what Jesus’ personal biblical requests throughout Scripture, and offers commentary and an overview of the Messiah Himself. He also gives a fair warning of controversy in the beginning of his book as well, as this subject is the center of controversy and has been for many years.
.
The book does give readers a plethora of information to consider: concerning Jesus, Israel, the Twelve Tribes, blessings & curses, the roots of Christianity (to include many of the holidays celebrated today in America, with additional information on the Catholic priests and a common Catholic mistranslation).  With such chapters as: What is Sin?, 248 Positive Commandments of the 613 Commandments/How Yeshua was Sinless, 365 Negative Commandments of 613 Commandments of God, Problems with Paul, Common Christian Misinterpretations, Promised Blessings and Curses (Signs of Judah), Why Yeshua Died for Israel’s Curses and Sins, Where are the Twelve Tribes Today?, Honorable Mention, (with included cites, notations, bibliography, and webography, and links). This is an insightful, often surprising, and historically inclusive book of many unknown related data regarding historical dates (such as Christmas), and Roman ties to idol worship that readers will find unbelievable, yet verifiable.
.
Most importantly, the book points out that if you love Christ, you will do His commands.  A CBM Christian Book Review ~ 10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
An amazing read. You may get your copy of If You Truly Loved Christ at Amazon or as a download in Kindle.

.

Stating that the year 2018 is when the Church will receive back the power and glory, inspiring all to go beyond the Cross into the God’s destiny as the triumphant Church.
.

Venatius Agbasiere takes a truthful look at suffering, relates them to readers in a Biblical sense, giving hope and encouragement for the journey of life. An outstanding read! ~ CBM Book Reviews
.
The plight of mankind, many ask why? Why is there so much suffering in the world?  In his book,  Suffering: Finding True Peace, Joy and Happiness in the Midst of Life’s Challenges, Problems and Difficulties, Venatius Agbasiere looks at suffering, the how and the why God uses seasons to build character, teach and make us pliable as clay is molded into a beautiful vessel. This going from desert to desert to bring His chosen ones into the Promised Land is a actually a type of training ground that the author calls a “breaking.” He states that, “Breaking is painful, breaking is frustrating, breaking is uncomfortable, but blessing comes afterwards, so please, do not give up during the time of breaking.” Further stating, “There is a blessing in breaking. We are broken by God in order to be blessed.”
.
The above statement gives insight into the focus of the book, as additional Biblical input builds the foundation as he preaches from the Scriptures. His book is meant to encourage the Body of Christ and to give understanding during the difficult seasons of life in order to make way for God to work and bring His blessings into one’s life. Offering his own experiences going from a third world country to the United States, his book states that all suffer, just in different ways. He reminds those that are doing well to not look upon those who are suffering, but presents a compassionate look at people’s sufferings.
.
Instrumentally, he teaches that God cared for the Israelites through all they went through. Similarly, we are to remember this that God does not change and He will not abandon us. He will provide us of all our needs and seasons do come to an end. God turns all into good for His Kingdom. (Romans 8:28)
.
Highly recommended as a must-read for every Christian, whether a new or mature believer.

Justification by Faith Alone in Christ Alone by Christian author Grace Dola Balogun is an uplifting book that encourages the Body of Christ to persevere through various hardships and trials because the hope of Christ does not disappoint, nor does His salvation by grace alone fail. 
.
The one requirement to salvation is faith in Jesus Christ as the author and finisher of our faith.  Grace Dola Balogun encourages readers to come up higher and gain a new perspective that is biblically based on subjects such as faith, grace, salvation, redemption, sanctification and justification.  All are revealed from a biblical foundation, displaying the truth of the Gospel.  Christ won for us on the Cross justification by faith alone.  The author thereby reveals the wonderful work of God that comes from justification that produces the fruits of the spirit in the believer.
.
By discussing such topics as: interpretation of faith, God’s work of justification, grace, redemption, Abraham’s faith, Christ’s obedience to the Father, the peace of God, holy faith that produces works, no faith equaling no good works, the results of good works, the fruit of faith, post reformer teachings on faith, examples of faith, living by faith – not by sight, faith, Christ, sanctification and glorification, Christ as our hope of glory and the gift of grace - the author has given a comprehensive study on the matter of justification by faith in Christ alone.
.
Once one comes to Christ, they are a new creation in Christ.   This new creation experiences a remission of sins and a righteousness that is imputed from our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ to the new believer.  We must understand the justification that has taken place that enables the Christian to enter into eternity.  All have come short of the glory of God and all go their own way; we can praise the Lord for this justification that comes by faith alone in Christ alone.  Hallelujah! Amen.

God Cares for Me in Every Season: Godly Insights for Singleness, Marriage, and Divorce by Agnes Amos-Coleman sets the stage to choose life according to God’s ways in every season of life, whether single, married, or divorced. Her book is organized in three sections pertaining to each season: single, married, or divorced. She speaks to Christians globally and to non-Christians, and links the eroding moral values of our times, (backed up by Gallop Poll Statistics).
.
Offering answers as to the reasons for certain seasons, each section is designed to offer godly foundations that produce the fruits of the Spirit. Intended to present understanding of God’s care during all seasons, God’s plan is that one will produce fruit in their lives. With keen insight and Biblical wisdom, the author sheds light through God’s Word, presenting an easy, three-pronged approach, giving hope for each season of life.
.
Developed through the teaching of the nine fruits of the Spirit, the author writes from a place of personal experience that brings inspiration and the blending of Christian principles and scripture verses that enhance one’s season in life. Each particular season is covered in three distinct sections to glean from, making for an easy read. The organization of the book presents a palatable format that asks your current season, (single, married, or divorced), presents life-lessons learned from these seasons, and presents to readers scripture affirmations for this particular season in their lives.
.
In the end, the author brings readers to a glorious conclusion, offering a steadfast hope in following the Lord in all His ways. Additionally, a type of a glossary is given presenting one scripture verse that best defines such terms as: love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, grace, forgiveness, obedience, blessing, encouragement, unity, Holy Spirit, praise, thankful, trust, waling in the Spirit, and offers a salvation prayer as well.
.
This book comes highly recommended to those who need inspiration and are growing in the Lord. In particular, the book is a way to digest the Word, while also receiving wisdom and direction for ones life.
.
You may order your copy of God Cares for Me in Every Season: Godly Insights for Singleness, Ma... or in Kindle. You can visit the author at, Agnes Amos-Coleman.

If Only by La Verne Hughes is a fascinating fictional journey into a rich Kingdom, the testing of a true love that has its roots in the Scripture verse 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV), “Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
.
This plight is set in a kingdom off the coast of Africa. A family has all the wealth, status and provision they could ever need, until the unthinkable happened. . .the takeover of their country from another king succeeded. Brought from a place of wealth and stability to a place of devastation, speaks of wrong decisions made, rejections that separated the ties of family that bring separation.  Can anyone recover from such devastation and rejection that is perceived by each other, in which the rejections have created an invisible barrier between loved ones. Many have experience such separations in family and relationships.  
.
This is an amazing read that speaks of true love, offering a mysterious adventure asking, “Will it stand the testing of everything or succumb to its bleak future?”  This book comes highly recommended as fantastic and well-written read. At only 76 pages, this book offers hope despite rejection, loss and grief that reminds us all of what true love is.

Boldly proclaiming God’s way for revival, Pastor Rusty Kuhn, speaks of God’s glory being revealed in his new book, Reclaiming the Land: God’s Formula for Revival.  Based on II Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land,” the author concisely illustrates the need, solution and results of honoring His name and what the means to us. 
.
This is truly an amazing read, with such chapters as: The Prayer that God Heard, Seeing the Signs, Saved with a Holy Calling, Humility for His Honor, The Power of Prayer, Seeking His Face, Honoring the Presence and The End Result that offers an amazing journey into the heart of God.  What does God require?  As believers, we seek His face, but do we really?  The author lists some of the pitfalls of Christianity that can subvert revival.  With this new book, Kuhn has given readers a blueprint for revival using the example of Solomon and God’s Temple.  This book is not only written for believers, but is a testimony to coming to God with a prepared heart and mind in surrendering to His will, not ours. 
.
With firm biblical foundations, the author has laid out a clear formula from God’s point of view.  Man’s agenda is not to be followed, and man must move out of the way, repent and call unto God like never before.  If you or your church family desires revival, this is a must-read book that will fan the flames through the written Word, encouragement and practical biblical applications.  Highly recommended! 
.

Get Reclaiming the Land: God’s Formula for Revival at Amazon in Paperback, in Kindle and visit Rusty Kuhn at Facebook.

What lies within the pages of a book? For one child in author Dy Ann Maddox’s latest children’s book, Read to Me, it is an adventure waiting to be explored. It’s a chance to learning what animals look like and getting to laugh at funny words the characters say. 
.
A young girl asks an adult to read to her a book, one that could make her laugh, cackle or chuckle. Her excitement for hearing the book being read to her is expressed through every page, mirroring what any child might feel during the reading of a book. 
.
Read to Me is set in rhyming schemes at each line’s end, which help in conveying the excitement young readers might feel as they await what will happen within each page turn. 
.
The book shows the typical reactions of a child as he/she is reading or listening to a new book through the whimsical illustrations shown on each page. Wanting to see the pictures and looking forward to laughing are common responses Read to Me demonstrates to readers with the illustrations on the book’s pages.
.
Dy Ann mentions that reading is important in the cognitive development of children and encouraging their imaginations to grow. Dedicating her book to her four children and seven grandchildren, Dy Ann advises all children, and adults, to read a book everyday to open their eyes to some exciting reading adventures. 
.
So, if you are looking for a book that is not only an enjoyable read for all ages, but is also educational in the lessons about reading, Read to Me is a book that’s quite the page-turner.
