Christopher D. Stanley, a New Testament scholar who specializes in the social and religious history of early Christianity, brings the world of Paul and the early church to life in his new historical fiction trilogy, “A Slave’s Story.”  See how you can win a free Kindle copy of the first book in the series! 
.
The first two books, A Rooster for Asklepios and A Bull for Pluto, follow the lives of two men at opposite ends of the social structure, a slave and an aristocrat, as they journey across first-century Asia Minor (modern Turkey) in a desperate quest for healing.  
.
Religion—Greek, Roman, Jewish, and Christian—plays a vital role in the series as Stanley paints a realistic and historically accurate picture of the competition that the apostle Paul faced as he sought to spread the message about Jesus in a pagan culture.  Along the way, he helps readers to see how odd Christianity appeared in a world where the worship of many gods was woven into every facet of life and the idea of a Jewish Messiah bringing salvation from sin and judgment was a foreign concept.  

.
Countless other aspects of life in the Roman world are vividly illustrated in this fascinating and well-researched series that is receiving five-star reviews on Amazon from both scholars and ordinary readers.  The reviews, which include more information about the contents of the books and their relevance for early Christianity, can be viewed 
A Rooster for Asklepios: A Slave's Story, Book 1 and at A Bull For Pluto: A Slave's Story, Book 2.  
.
Sound interesting?  Be one of 100 lucky people who get to read it for free!  The author is giving away 100 free copies of the Kindle version of A Rooster for Asklepios during the month of October through a Goodreads Giveaway.  But you’ll have to act quickly since the contest ends on October 31.  To enter the Giveaway, go to Book Giveaway For A Rooster for Asklepios: A Slave's Story, Book 1. You must have an Amazon account (to receive the free copy) and a Goodreads account to enter.  It's easy to sign up for a free Goodreads account.

Title: Killing Greatness:
A Story About a Bully
By: Tronell Walker
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Tronell Walker, in her latest release, Killing Greatness: A Story About a Bully, speaks to bring encouragement to readers with an underlying theme of encouragement and Biblical principles to help face life’s bullies. She also speaks on current issues facing America, offering hope to many. She speaks frankly and candidly, yet with an overtone of love, tact, wisdom, and gentleness. Her own life reflects one who has chosen to remain steadfast, trusting in God through the storms of life. She gives readers the insight and courage to face their “bullies” in life with confidence, trusting in God through their trials.  
.
The goal for this book is to enlighten, encourage, and inspire readers into a firm resolve despite circumstances. She covers such subjects as: racism, the current political climate, advocates for the LGBT community, as well as the disabled. With a blend of historical and well-researched facts, along with Scripture, the reader is free to disagree or agree, regardless. 
.
Tronell Walker’s desire and purpose in this read is to shed light onto these subjects, bringing the social change necessary according to Christian principles of love and mercy. Her hopes are that others will learn how to love and accept each other, individually and corporately, regardless of race, social status, or capabilities; in this way, honoring the Two Greatest Commandments, which is to love God first and to love your neighbors as yourself.
.
This is a wonderful and highly encouraging read that presents a perspective of wisdom and common sense, offering some solutions that can be used to face a bully (a.k.a. today’s societal dilemmas).

The Mindrulers is an award-winning 3-book series by Steve Pillinger, a multi-published author, Bible translator, history buff, and linguist.
.
In Book 1 of this epic Christian suspense saga (The Mindruler), lives collide in a grand battle taking place on another world. A student, a lecturer, a web designer and a retired teacher are forever changed when they find themselves in an unknown reality. In this alien place they are drawn into a deadly battle against the evil Mindruler and his minions. These overlords control people’s thoughts, thereby governing their every move and making them slaves through this ultimate invasion of people’s psyche and self-will. Freedom is at stake and reality will be forever altered if the Mindrulers succeed.  
.
Imagine waking up and finding yourself in another reality, another paradigm, one you don’t know how to escape from! Fantastically written, the book unfolds the characters’ daily lives, carefully developing each of them in a way that draws readers in and keeps them on edge, glued to the page, wondering what happens next, as these four individuals discover the strange and confusing new reality of an alien world. Long-awaited prophecy is being fulfilled in them, though they struggle to believe this at first. But gradually they discover that mindbending is real, and find themselves embroiled in medieval battles with swords and armor. Yet victory awaits them as they learn to rely on One whose power is greater than the Mindruler, despite his use of a nation’s resources together with spiritual and mental oppression to achieve his goals.
.
Guided by a brilliant writer, one will find oneself engaged along with the characters in this epic conflict on a faraway world that holds deep, dark secrets. Reluctantly to begin with, these very ordinary people from Earth learn to accept their role as “Restorers of the Way”; and as they travel from crisis to crisis, they begin to grow into the true Restorers they are intended to be. But they soon realize that the weapons of their warfare are not those one would normally expect. Special ‘instruments’ help them with their task, and they discover that the only way out is to go through! The author has included wonderful maps to illustrate the journeys that make up this grand adventure.
.
This is a well thought-out and fantastically creative book, surely a movie in the making! It awakens fantasy and portrays the age-old dragon’s attempts to steal, kill and destroy. Christians understand that this spiritual battle is real: the author has presented a breathtaking and harrowing look inside prevalent evil, and created a masterpiece of fiction that takes readers to an imaginary world that is both similar and unique, like and yet unlike our own world.

Highly recommended for young men and women who love Christian fantasy fiction and adventure within a truly epic and heroic saga, intertwining spiritual battles of good versus evil.

Magnificently done and highly entertaining! You may get your copy of The Mindrulers at Amazon

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.

The Coming of the Son of Man: The Sequence of Events of the End speaks of the End Time events leading up to the Second Coming of Christ. There is no better time to read this book, as the world currently is going through a global pandemic.
.
One may wonder if this is a sign of the End Times, and wonder what is next? Even those who mock God, or perhaps are Atheists, insisting there is no God, might wonder, what is going on? 
.
The author explains the sequence of events of the end times, giving readers a concise overview of the timeline that is set forth in the Word of God. With a keen understanding of the Word of God, the author’s intent is not to relate bad news, but to give hope, insight and understanding that is available in Christ. Born-again believers will find this book fascinating and a wonderful resource to the timeline of events and Biblical truth that share the long-awaited events leading up to the fast approaching return of Christ and His Second Coming.
.
With a resounding shout of triumph, this book gives the light of hope to this generation in Christ, offering Christ as an anchor for the soul. The Bride of Christ eagerly awaits the glorious celebration of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and the fulfillment of time takes place upon the world’s stage.

God's Masterpiece: A Portrait of The Born Again Spirit by Herbert Fearman speaks of a very important subject that is not readily taught often, but this life-transforming principle showcased in John 3:3 and John 3:5 should be shouted from the mountain tops.
.
Jesus told us in John 3:3 and John 3:5 that except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God and except a man be born of water and of the Holy Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. We should all know more about this glorious new creation that's taken place inside of every Spirit-filled believer in Jesus Christ. Yet, this book gives a portrait of the new believer’s redemption and regeneration of their spirit man.
.
By mediating on God's Masterpiece, the author believes readers will gain insight into the New Testament, bringing clarity and a more rewarding experience. As the author states, “It's truly amazing when you begin to discover the things God has already given us and it's even more mind blowing to realize what he deposited inside of us when we gave our lives to His Son, Jesus.”
.
God Almighty has glorious fellowship with us right now in heavenly places that we know nothing about, but he's just beginning to pull back the curtain and give us a glimpse. The things He has done just to make sure our communion with Him will never again be broken is truly remarkable.
.
Readers will find that this book is a short and easy read filled with revelation knowledge and power. By the design of the Holy Spirit this book lets the Bible do the talking instead of giving opinions. I love it when the Scripture's breathe fresh revelation and the revelation in this book paints a lovely portrait of the born again spirit.

Essential material for every pastors and evangelists tool box.
Jesus didn't just tell us to win souls - He told us to make disciples. Every evangelist should carry a few of these and every church should keep a few in the pastors office if we are actually winning souls and want to see them established in the kingdom.
