The fifth novel in The End Times Saga goes through the first three and a half years of the seven year Tribulation. The new world leader and his religious leader deal with biblical sized disasters, two Jewish witnesses who preach the gospel and annoy the world's sinners, and the leaders' attempts at bringing the world under his control.

The Promise Road.

If ever there was a miracle, this story is one.

Once upon a time,
it was 1955. Eisenhower (‘Ike’) was President; a stamp cost three cents; Popsicles came two to a package; Elvis was twenty; and against all odds, young David Joe Fallon, Jr. and Jessie Marie Taylor were in love. The End. The beginning.

Innovo Publishing, LLC Releases The Tommie Scott Story: From Gangs, Drugs, and Crime to Soldier for Christ by Tommie Scott.

– Innovo Publishing, LLC released a new Christian title, The Tommie Scott Story, written by Tommie Scott. With Jesus, there is always hope, no matter how bad things are. The Tommie Scott Story is a true story—a true love story—but not of the usual variety.

This is a story of a gangbanger, drug dealer, and “hit man” who worked his way through the juvenile reform system and into a California state prison by age twenty. It’s the story of an angry young criminal with no remorse and no hope. And it’s here—in the depths of hopeless darkness—that this story begins again. It begins again with a humble, gray-haired man who was not ashamed to be a servant and to share the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. It begins again with a new birth—a spiritual rebirth into God’s family through Jesus Christ. And it continues today with a repentant and joyful servant—a dedicated soldier for Christ—whose true story affirms God’s Word that says, “… neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38, NIV).


“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10, NIV).

On sale for $.99 on Amazon from today until December 6. Currently has 5 reviews and rated 4.5 stars.

Can a nineteen year old stay true to the faith he was brought up on when he's under the spotlight?

Timothy Phillips dreams come true when he's discovered by the producer of a national talent show. So what's the problem? The recording contract is not in the Southern Gospel he would prefer to sing. As he begins recording and performing the music, he encounters increasing hostility towards Christians. Can he stay true to his faith, or will he end up compromising his beliefs little by little the more famous he becomes?

When his world comes crashing down, will he have anything left to help him stand as the end times approach? (supposed to send you to your home Amazon store)

Author and pastor, Glen Gibson, speaks from over twenty years experience as a pastor in his new book, Not the Way You Thought It Would Be.  As a pastor, he is well acquainted with faith and what is supposed to look like.  As one who holds a B.A. in Religion from Vanguard University and a M.A. from Fuller Theological Seminary, he is well versed in scriptural interpretation and application.  He has written this book to give hope and help to those traveling from faith to faith with God.  Through the life of Abraham, Gibson, demonstrates that a Christian's faith journey is similar.  There are valleys and mountaintops to discovering faith in God.  Come and discover what true biblical faith is according to the Bible.

Gibson's keen insight into biblical concepts gives practical application into understanding what faith is and answers many of the questions that arise through the wanderings along the faith trail.  Many Christians have become discouraged and trapped by the unanswered prayers, delays and testing that come upon the narrow path.  Discover that you are not alone and that many, including the 'father of faith,' Abraham traversed this trail, yet found victory.  Not only was he found to be righteous, but he became a 'friend of God.'  Discover that you can be a friend of God as well.  Learn more about God, faith and trust through this uplifting scriptural read that will help readers discover their purpose in God, transitioning from the old into the new. 
Highly recommended for new and mature believers alike, this book includes a study guide at the end of each chapter that facilitates individual study and/or can be used in a group setting.  A highly recommended read for those that feel burnt out and need help in understanding the journey they are on.
For further information about Glen, his book and how to order, visit Glen L. Gibson.   You may also get your copy of Not the Way You Thought It Would Be at Amazon, in Kindle Edition, at Barnes and Noble and at NOOK Book. Be sure to visit Glen's blog for the latest news and updates.

Title: The Last Train at Sunset

By: Pearl Nsiah-Kumi
Review Date: October 3, 2013
A Christian Book Review
9.9 out of 10.0 stars
The Last Train at Sunset by multi-published author Pearl Nsiah-Kumi presents to individuals the important question of salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.  Poignantly presenting the Gospel through a series of short articles and poems, the author sheds light to the urgency of the matter and that “Today is the Day of salvation.”  She encourages all to understand the urgency of the matter because all are appointed to die and eternity does await each individual whether you believe or don’t believe. 
With much scripture and a firm biblical application, the author gives concise answers to the question of salvation, forgiveness of sins, eternity, Heaven, Hell.  Within this, she gives tools and practical application from scripture to help the believer in the walk with the Lord.  This a wonderfully encouraging read that inspires all to take hold of salvation and to not miss the last train at sunset. 
For further information visit the author at Pearl Kumi. You may get your copy of The Last Train at Sunset at Amazon, in Kindle Edition and at other fine-online bookstores.
Christian authors use the power and reach of Christian Book Marketing to share salvation with the world.

Mark M. Hanna, formerly a professor of philosophy for many years at California State University and Talbot School of Theology, releases Biblical Christianity: Truth or Delusion?  As a previous professor and instructor at the University of Southern California, he holds M.A. degrees in philosophy and world religions and a Ph.D. in philosophy. He earned his B.A. at the American University in Beirut while living there for four years and as such, he has lectured in numerous universities and theological seminaries across the globe. His works included: Crucial Questions in Apologetics and The True Path: Seven Muslims Make Their Greatest Discovery and his latest endeavor, Biblical Christianity: Truth or Delusion?

In Biblical Christianity: Truth or Delusion? Dr. Mark M. Hanna disputes the book: The Christian Delusion written by John Loftus and Dan Barker as he unequivocally dismantles each of their arguments one by one with precision.  This is a fascinating read that clearly reveals the fallaciousness of atheist contentions, pointing to their failed corroboration that carries further implications that provide positive evidence for biblical Christianity.  Within that the author discerns and presents a comprehensive theological and philosophical surmise from both biblical theologists and theories of many anti-Christians that are to be read carefully and understood in order to comprehend certain debates that coincide with one's destination and question of eternity.
