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

Let’s Discover Your Spiritual Gifts by Pastor G. Victor Morrisey Jr. has been written to help others in the body of Christ discover their place in the Kingdom of God through the realization of their spiritual gifts as spoken of in the Bible. Readers will come to know purpose as they understand that they are called, chosen, equipped, and have everything they need from God. This is a comprehensive instructional guide that breaks down this complex subject on spiritual gifts, offering an easy-to-read teaching on the many gifts from the Holy Spirit that will enrich one’s service in the Kingdom, giving great understanding of their own personal spiritual gifts, and how to use them.
.
The author notes that spiritual gifts are not for you, but a service to the body of Christ. With this in mind, Pastor G. Morrisey guides readers through a step-by-step and practical insight of spiritual gifts given by the Holy Spirit. Believers will come to understand their own spiritual gifts, as they are taught each gifts’ functionality, along with Who gives these gifts. By building on the spiritual gifts listed in Scripture, the author also speaks on the authority of Paul the Apostle’s statement in 1 Corinthians 12:1, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” He stands on that statement by Paul. At the end of each chapter, Pastor Morrisey offers a short quiz to personalize the chapter. Each chapter is concise, offering insight and sound doctrine.
.
Invaluable, and inseparable from the Word of God, spiritual gifts will move one forward in the flow of the Kingdom of God. Each believer has various gifts that are given by the Holy Spirit. As an important part of the body of Christ, each believer should stive to understand their gifts and talents to use them accordingly as a servant and as an instrument to the body of believers, as well as to those around them. This is a wonderful and important book to come up higher in one’s walk with God and to learn to be used mightily of God.
.
This book comes highly recommended for new or mature believers alike who would like to become the least in the Kingdom of God by becoming “a servant to all."

Coupled with the use of Biblical principles, stages of development in children, this book teaches, educates and gives parents the arsenal they need to educate themselves and their families in either prevention or healing from traumatic child sexual abuse (CSA).
.
Giving the definitions of child sexual abuse (CSA) and the staggering statistics in our nation, coupled with the abuse worldwide – the abuse of children is unprecedented. Our day and age is raging with this sin against the most innocent of beings – children. Abuse comes in many forms and can be quite insidious, thus the author’s efforts focus on sexual abuse. She also gives insight into the psychiatric dynamics of a sexual predator or offender. Her book is well-rounded and an overview on the subject of CSA that gives knowledge, help and guidance as a manual for prevention and protection against such crimes.
.
As a comprehensive handbook, one can glean the contents and find out not only how to use her guide, but understand how to limit internet media and device pornography, recognize strategies of perpetrators, giving tips of what to do and what not to do – parents, caregivers and helpers can help recognize, prevent and protect children against childhood sexual abuse.

Reina Davison speaks to children, telling them they are “Overcomers.” This is a wonderful truth in God’s Word, as she begins the book by the definition of what an overcomer is. Opening children’s eyes to the truth of God’s purpose and plans for them, she goes on to describe God’s gift of free will. Describing Good Touch and Bad Touch; she elaborates on these two and what that can encompass. There are Good Touch people and Bad Touch people. Her book gives hope to children who have or have not experienced abuse by speaking the truth of God’s love and care for their body. She also teaches children how to prevent abuse by giving them the tools to know the difference between a healthy relationship and unhealthy relationships.
.
Writing from a Biblical perspective, yet incredibly gentle and simple, Reina Davison gives hope and guidance that exposes the darkness and sin of the enemy lurking in our lives. These people are unsafe and “No Touch” people as Reina explains. Her premise teaches children the principle of becoming “Overcomers” in Christ Jesus. This is a fantastic book that teaches wonderful and enlightening spiritual truths to children. (Note: This book just may encourage adults as well; teaching them that they are overcomers!) I personally enjoyed the uplifting truths to her book and thought…
I wish I had a book such as this when I was a child. You will be delighted by this book as well.
.
As a guidebook, this book teaches parents, caregivers, family members, etc., to understand what safe behavior is in and out of the home. Her Body Safety guide in the back provides a checklist for adults to adhere to in protecting children. With beautiful illustrations, the author sheds light on walking in the truth of God’s Word, while giving them instruction of their enemy (the devil), the Bible, and Jesus, offering hope and encouragement to look to Jesus as their help and Savior. Her book shows that God has a good plan for them and cares for them. She shares that they are Overcomers and can defeat the enemy (the devil) and that because of Jesus, they too can choose to be of Good Cheer (be happy). 

.
This book comes highly recommended for all children who need to be taught encouraging truths about God’s Word, and especially is a tool to be used by parents, counselors, pastors, child psychologists, medical personnel, and lay persons to teach about healthy sexual boundaries.  
.
To tell you the truth, this is one of those books parents should utilize in teaching their children about bad people that sin and touch inappropriately. She has given a list of resources in the back of the book, and is an advocate of ending child sexual abuse. Written with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity to children’s pure intellects, this book does a wonderful job in tackling a difficult subject.

Christianity today has become what can God do for me, instead of what I am to do for God. Pursuing godly purposes has now been intertwined with the pursuit of wealth, security and a way to eternal life that the Scriptures do not preach.
.
Dr. Danson Ubebe refers to the first century Christians that only preached Christ crucified and recognized Jesus as the Shepherd who came to fulfill the Prophets and the Law. Somehow, Old Testament and New Testament teachings have now been woven together such as, “the chair of Moses, tithing, fasting from abstinence from food, and other traditions of the Law,” per the author. In this book, the author presents Scripture’s perspective vs. man’s perspective, offering the truth vs. a variation of truth. Dr. Danson E. Ubebe asks readers to choose for themselves after reading Scripture, as referred to in Deuteronomy 30:19, “…therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendants may live,” asking a poignant question, what is the truth? Therefore, readers can delve into this book to find truth, read the Bible for themselves and discover the teachings on eternal life, salvation and the way of truth.
.
Readers might ask themselves, what is the way of truth? As the author points out, the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is the way of truth. One would have to read what the Bible speaks on these matters to become more Christ-like and as such, the author provides a format for the building of Christ-like character that includes “holiness”. Specifically mentioning the role of the Holy Spirit as “the anointing,” the author concisely takes the readers through Biblical discourse back to the beginning of creation, Adam and Eve, the Fall of man, and God’s purpose for creating man, helping readers understand the brevity of the matter and the inerrant spoken Word of God as eternal. All want eternal life, but there is only one way, as the Scriptures will prove what is acceptable according to Scripture versus man’s opinion.
.
As noted, the role of the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture and lack of knowledge of Scripture has left a void, even a vacuum that some may explain as a giant pit, and a dark hole which from there is no return.
.
Within this book, he urges all to become a “student” of the Word and to look into the Bible for themselves to find truth. His teachings are Biblically sound and this book tells the truth that today’s Christian preachers, pastors and those who teach the Bible have made Christianity a huge platform for their own enterprise. (This attitude does not pertain to every person preaching, but involves a large share of those that might use His Gospel for their own profit.) This is not what Jesus preached in His Gospel and not what He intended. The Gospel is not a get rich scheme.
.
A highly recommended read for all that are searching for truth! You may get your copy of Doomed Christianity & The Unshakable Lifeline at Amazon.

Pain with Purpose by Rachel Adcock offers an overview of her life memoir that reveals a purpose for pain and suffering that can bring forth hope and freedom in Christ. With that in mind, she shares her life story, struggles, sickness, mistakes and hindsight that culminate to a wonderful end. 
.
She boldly states, “Live life with the optimism that there is a purpose for your pain and a better outcome in the future.” Readers will gain insight and encouragement as the author shares her battle with cancer as a child, life challenges, and mistakes that caused suffering. In the hope of helping others to go forward in their lives, she gives readers an understanding that there is purpose in pain and a brighter future ahead. She teaches how to view life with optimism, which is wonderfully refreshing.
.
With great care, practicality and honesty, she offers insight to the benefit to life’s challenges, realizing that others have had it worse. Her life story displays how pain does reveal a greater purpose, brings spiritual maturity, and can be used by God to bring healing, to include a benefit to others. Her book offers comfort in the fact that life does go on and it can be for the better. With such chapters as: Sicker than Sick, Boys Will be Boys, Calling it Quits, More Mistakes, Surviving the Single Life, Second Chances & Keeping the Faith, readers will find encouragement, hope and confidence for their future.
.
Rachel’s story will captivate and encourage readers so that they can go on. She is an optimist at heart and teaches others how to think more positively and gain insight from past challenges. Her book is full of wisdom from many years experience through difficult trials. Coupled with wonderful quotes and sprinkled with some scripture verses, this book is well-done, speaks frankly and is not an overly “preachy” autobiography. She reaches out to others in a unique way through “Reflections” at the end of each chapter. In this way, she shares her own insight from past events, the benefits from hindsight, and concludes with discussion questions for the reader as an opportunity to increase in their own growth and maturity. 
.
This is a highly recommended read for those that have experienced pain and suffering and are looking for hope with a renewed perspective on life and painful experiences.

The Sons of God, a book that is full of holiness and indignation at the same time. This book represents a two-fold manifesto of the revealing of the last 3 Trumpets (the last three woe’s) in the Book of Revelation and a call for repentance to all who do not follow Christ.
.
His first chapter “A Tale of Two Cities” speaks to those who are of the world (Babylon) and those who have been called out of the world, yet still exist in the world as followers of Christ. These two cities (or two groups of people) face choices that have consequences for eternity, but also in the near future. He further states that we are living in the Book of Revelation right now and that the Book of Revelation is not some time in the future but unfolding before our very eyes. With this in mind, his book offers somewhat of a discourse on the upcoming Christian revolution with exciting prophecy revealed as the 3 woe’s. An invitation is given as well to come into the Kingdom, to know Christ, to save yourself from the coming wrath of the Lord upon the entire Earth, so that you may be spared eternal damnation and the full wrath of God.
.
His book packs punch after punch! The author does not hold back in professing righteousness, calling evil for what it is and naming erroneous and egregious sins that have overtaken many, to include prevalence in our Western society. Issues such as gay marriage, homosexuality, abortion, murder, fornication, adultery, atheism, along with the culture of violence, war and murder that is so commonplace, shedding light that God Almighty does not delight in any of these abominations. Further mentioning idols such as entertainment and media, the love of money, selfish pride, celebrity fanfare and glory, only to reveal the rightful place of women and men among society paints a grim picture of today’s society. Yet, there is hope; that hope is found in the forgiveness of sins through salvation a proclamation of Jesus Christ as one’s Lord and Savior. Hope is found in following Jesus, choosing faith and learning to endure to the end. He gives strategies, scripture verses and instruction on becoming strong in faith and knowledge so that one will be able to stand until the end and persevere. He gives strong warnings that the faint at heart will not survive.
.
This book represents a wake-up call to all (including Christians and the complacent) who are of this world to make a choice: Are you for Jesus or against Him? He exhorts all to take a stand now for Christ and speaks of the times we are living in to be the End Times and that the great End Time Harvest is soon to come with the Great Tribulation. He calls all to make a choice for their own eternity and implores all who don’t believe or who are in sin to repent.
.
Yet, he ends his discourse with an end of speaking to those who will not give their hearts to Jesus fully and shifts his attention to the Bride of Christ, to encourage, refine, teach and to prepare them for what is coming up ahead.
