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.

My newest release, $.99 until next week and only on Kindle, but also available in paperback for $6.64.

Timothy Phillips is a 19 year old Christian young adult who loves to sing in church. One day, he's discovered by the producer of a national talent show. Timothy goes on the show, performs Country music, instead of the Christian Southern Gospel he prefers, and ends up winning his portion of the show. As he encounters increasing hostility towards Christians, he begins to follow the world instead of Christ. The story follows his highs and lows as he becomes a famous Country musician shortly before the end times.
