Title: Abduction ChroniclesBy: Folarin Philip BanigbeA CBM Christian Book Review10.0 out of 10.0 stars.“It is in moments of trouble that we know the value of true friendships.” Folarin Philip Banigbe.Abduction Chronicles by Folarin Philip Banigbe relates a touching, spine-tingling, non-fiction account of his own abduction experience. Touching, this novel will captivate you as the author relates each encounter as he was abducted from his home in the middle of the night in his home country, Nigeria. .He narrates the book and speaks of the events and his thoughts during the ordeal that paint a vivid picture, giving readers an inside view of the home invasion that quickly became life-threatening. Taken by thugs, forced to endure and overcome exposure to elements, lack of food and harsh weather, his abduction shares how God encountered him in his darkest moments. Triumphant, he came back from the evil of perpetrators seeking money to re-tell the truth of what really happened during his days gone missing..Beginning his narrative of the moments when robbers cut into iron bars to get into the home, the author’s account is a minute-by-minute thrill ride. Readers will find themselves asking, what would I do in such a situation, faced with a Ak-47 and no weapons for defense? The author’s quick thinking throughout his abduction makes for a fast-paced and compelling read. In a unique fashion, he blends his prayers and thoughts to God, coupled with the Holy Spirit’s workings within the ordeal..Author quote; "Spiritual insights into this abduction include: core values of The Full Gospel - Jesus and the salvation He brings, the Holy Ghost, the Voice of God, visions and dreams, and the Power of God to save and deliver.".As an added bonus, the author’s wife and daughter give their own accounts of the home invasion and days waiting for the author’s return. Intense moments are captured as the wife shares dialogue through phone calls and demands for ransom money that made each day’s dealings with Folarin’s captor’s delicate. Despite the raging emotions, Folarin’s wife gives thanks to God who gave her the peace and strength to survive the barrage of emotions a wife might have for her husband. .Folarin Philip Banigbe has come out of the ordeal a better man, teaching others to help abduction victims through his foundation. A wonderful read..

In My Mind, a compilation of poems and short stories written by Paul Tremewan, a much loved teacher from Flint, Michigan, towards the end of his life and his fierce battle against a horrible degenerative disease; rapid onset Bulbar type ALS. .The poems include Paul's musings and prayers chronicling the last two years of his life; his struggle and faith while coming to grips with his mortality and the hereafter. .The short stories are a collection of inspirational anecdotes from Paul's career as teacher, which he would fondly retell to his friends and family from time to time. These stories give the reader a glimpse into the experiences, wisdom, humor and the genuine caring soul Paul was while on this earth. These were put to paper before Paul’s passing so they would not be lost to posterity and so they can be shared with the world. .In My Mind shares the thoughts, prayers and short stories of a brilliantly sharp mind trapped in the failing body of a bed ridden, dying man. The hope of this book is to continue Paul’s legacy of service and caring for other people, to serve as a source of light to those struggling with terminal illness or life crisis, as well as an inspiration to people of faith.
The First Seed by David Witman is a colorful and beautifully illustrated children’s book depicting an old oak tree (as modern academia) and a little boy who have an interesting conversation. The little boy is able to look up to this big oak tree and ask, “Where did you come from and how did you get to be so big?” The old oak tree answers cordially, and has the same answer back to the boy every time with the exception of different seeds the tree came from. Question after question, the little boy asks and asks, until he finds out where the original seed came from.
.With a series of answers, the last question that the little boy asks cannot be answered. Parents can answer for the book to dispel naturalistic views and introduce that the first seed came from a eternal being, namely God, who created the very first seed by intelligent design..Helping children recognize the systematic problem with “conjecture,” this book makes children think. Pointing children to God as the Creator of everything contained in the Universe, the author dispels evolution (and naturalistic views) brought forth by Academia’s as the ultimate and true fact..
With wit and a curious little boy, the author teaches children that we didn’t just “magically evolve” from one thing into the next thing as our science books are teaching our children as fact. The author has given children just enough knowledge of plant life and DNA to help them understand God and Science, and that God created all DNA and plants..This is a wonderful story to share with children to make them think about our world, and help them understand that God created all things. Beautifully written..You may get your copy of The First Seed at Amazon or in Kindle as a download..
A CBM Book Review - 10.0 out of 10.0 stars
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.Get your copy of Alliance Lake: Be Still at Amazon or in Kindle as a download.
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.
DON'T ATTEMPT!Wine! You attempt to intoxicate realities in vain.However they are sober inside their trains.Wine! Do recognize me in my pomegranate dress!The pomegranate seeds are chasing my rains.I am a picture on a white page. Only a true love's force can change my address.Wine! An intoxicated brain can be sober again.An intoxicated heart is a wandering sail.Realities! Do you recognize me in my pomegranate dress?Oh, no, this dress is not newly made.It may be exactly of the world's age.Realities! Don't attempt to taste my pomegranate dress!It gives me its wine to intoxicate.

GODDESS ANAHIT!We may meet, Goddess Anahit! You gave me your name and your ancient myth. There's a bench where I can sit. There's a branch where a bird can sing. I wonder if you gave me your perfume made from mint. Do the stars stretch their knees not to slip? You didn't smoke but I do, Goddess Anahit! However the ashes are the same in time's messages. Who knows whose beauty shone in the ancient fortresses? You are still a statue in time's voyages. Who am I in my old and new bandages? We have the same name in time's images. Do the stars meet their myth Goddesses?
