Title: Lily
By. B.J. Bassett
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
A Must Read ... Lily by B.J. Bassett sheds light on the hope and redemption that comes from faith in Jesus Christ through a historical fiction novel. Set in the early 1900’s, the book chronicles the coming of age and faith of Lily. 
.
Lily’s mother died in childbirth after Lily was born. Raised by her father, the Reverent William Blair, Lily emerges as a brave and outgoing child with a feisty disposition. This is a wonderful and exciting novel that displays the tensions in life struggles with faith, emotions, and the growing up of a young girl into a woman. 
.
Being surrounded by the Christian faith, Lily accepts this, yet she still has questions…namely how do close family members, including White Dove and Running Cloud, have such amazing peace and joy within themselves despite circumstances. This intrigues Lily, as she witnesses their peace in all they do. She wonders where this peace comes from because she does not experience it. Her demeanor in her growing up years can be quite different.  
.
Upon her falling in love with James, Lily’s life reveals a time when unwed mothers were unacceptable. Such issues in the novel expose some domestic violence, and time where this was simply not addressed. Lily’s life regrets from the consequences of bad decisions culminate.
.
The author offers the nostalgia of letter writing to express and create the story-line throughout the book, which brings fresh interludes and endings. Further, intertwining romance with a Christian-based theme of faith and love that traces Lily through her life, despair, loss to finding hope, triumph, peace and contentment. Lily comes to a wonderful and delightful conclusion that will inspire readers to enjoy life in the present.
.
Young women will enjoy this novel as they witness the blossoming of Lily into a beautiful woman.  This is a sweet novel that also speaks of a mother’s love and the fruits of the Spirit in one’s soul. There is some bad language and a little violence, yet the author lovingly deals with certain issues as fear, guilt, condemnation, forgiveness versus what comes naturally in one’s soul sometimes…such as anger, frustration, depression, etc.
.
She offers Lily and her boisterous personality to teach readers that God’s way is sweet, and one can enjoy life when you “stop and smell the roses.” Cuddle up, get comfortable and grab a favorite cup of tea or coffee with this one! A satisfying drama and novel.

Sword of the Spirit by Mark Norris  

A Must Read Book - To most in the Realm of Drugolin, otherly spirit lore lingered as mysterious legends best suited for late night hearths. On rare occasions one might hear of strange visitations. Some of huge, radiant beings bearing aid and guidance. Others of dark, evil creatures summoning dread and death. All were a part of Drugolish legend, but few took them seriously.
.
The westland village of Noy couldn’t afford the apathy of its unenlightened, middleland neighbors. Its enclosing fortress walls stood as a monument to the frightening visitations it experienced, day and night.
.
When the town’s most celebrated otherly adventurer receives a prophetic lamp, he teams with one final group on a faith empowering mission into the dread regions of evil that could usher in an eternal age where mortals are like angels and God reigns supreme.
.
Yahwin (God), Krystos (Jesus), Sahron (Satan), a host of otherly foes, warrior angels, and warrior prophets endued with extraordinary power all inhabit this peculiar realm in which author Mark Norris tells an eschatological tale that wars for the Millennium’s victor’s rights.
.
What would you do if an angel materialized in your bedroom tonight, handed you a prophetic lampstand that projected the events of Satan’s rebellion, and invited you to brave the powers of hell?  ................. The otherly is waiting,…will you go?
.
What others say about Sword of the Spirit:
.
In Sword of the Spirit, Mark takes us on an intense and imaginative quest that parallels our own lives. A great piece of work that captivates the reader while increasing our ability to remain free from the schemes of darkness. I love  it. It is lush in imagery.“ ~ Gary Crawford
.
This book really made me think. It delves into spiritual warfare, and considers some of the ways God could anoint believers who resist the enemy in the last days. This book challenged me to believe God for some things I had never considered before. But, it is also a good story. It has plenty of action and I found it hard to put down. I recommend it!” ~ Tom Miller

Matzah Balls to Communion Wafers



When Baker yearns for something more, she discovers that the Christian message answers the deep yearning within each of us to resolve human suffering. Baker’s conversion is not a blinding-light epiphany, but a process spanning years of agonizing conflict, echoing twenty centuries of misunderstanding between Christians and Jews. Living in the same city as her chagrined parents, she is forced to process difficulties related to family dynamics, group loyalty, and identity politics. Readers will be emboldened by Baker’s decision to follow Christ at the risk of rupturing ties with family and community. Her book will appeal to all who seek God’s guidance in making difficult life decisions.  This book is a must-read for Christians who wish to engage with their Jewish friends. The Jewish mindset is tenderly revealed, showing why so many Jews bristle at the mere mention of Jesus.

The Power of Childhood
Lawrence W. Stanfield, PhD
CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Lawrence W. Stanfield, PhD, relates the importance of healing childhood trauma. Offering solutions and explanation into habits and patterns that develop into adulthood through an unstable home environment lend insight into an approach to holistic healing. 
.
These means of holistic healing are through the rebirth process and living a godly life. Consequently, the necessary ingredients that a child needs is presented. Giving readers the tools to recognize unstable environments and childhood trauma received from insecurity, giving hope to readers with encouragement to seek holistic means of healing of the soul through Jesus, the Bible and the application of Biblical principles.
.
Throughout the author sheds light into practical application through scripture verses that offer a clear perspective of the epidemic of dilemma affecting so many people into their adult years. His book combines decades of research, his own childhood trauma coming from an unstable environment, and depicts case studies that further reveal the plight of victims in childhood.  
.
He gives truth to believers that they might not be able to live a victorious life in Christ without certain biblical principles in play. He encourages confrontation of issues related to childhood trauma and perception to challenge.
.
Presenting information that is without the usual psychological dogma that is difficult to understand, he speaks to readers with compassion. Chapter One begins with encouraging Biblical truths and profound, simple, insights that make this a worth-while read to understand a child’s deep need for love, security and self-esteem within a godly environment with parents being living examples of God’s love. Crucial explanation of the basic foundational building blocks that promote a well-rounded adult, the author conversely gives understanding to what happens to children that don’t receive these basics in childhood. 
.
His book gives an overview of brain function, mental development, and behavior cycles that come from not receiving the basics in childhood. In essence, both the brain and soul are affected; therefore, both are in need of reprogramming and healing.
.
At the core of his book is the solution for the soul in holistic healing represented through the rebirth and receiving of the Holy Spirit. Without these two functions, a Christian will not live victoriously. Unveiling the nature of God, our Creator, as a loving Father, and Jesus Christ, His Son, the author presents a guide to walking in the Spirit of God, giving Biblical truth as foundational for becoming whole and free. Yet, he offers truth, and speaks of false doctrine in certain theology that speaks of Christianity as a way to become blessed, prosperous and not suffer. Rather, He speaks of the sanctified soul and dying to self as a way of daily walking with God. Get your copy of The Power of Childhood at Amazon or in Kindle
