The Unspeakable by Christian novelist Tessa Stockton is an intriguing suspense thriller that portrays the story of a North American woman caught wrongfully imprisoned in Colombia.  Due to tumultuous warfare between violent leftist guerrillas and rightwing paramilitary political groups, the young journalist finds herself fighting for her life and sanity as she endures extreme human rights violations.  Trapped in what is called the "The Water Cave" for four months, one week and two days, she imagined and hoped that each day would be her last.  Facing evil and torture from a man known as Puma, she experiences atrocities that can only be called, "unspeakable."  To understand her position and witness her transformation, you must start from the beginning and follow her through to the end.

Christian Book News - Award winning author D.A. Winstead's Southern Crosses: An African Ghost Story

Award winning author D.A. Winstead has had surprising success in showcasing his faith-based novel, Southern Crosses: An African Ghost Story, in overseas literary markets and recently has received accolades in international fiction competitions. Due to his success, we are re-releasing our review released in 2012.

See what international book lovers are reading about the author's view of grace and the three Fs of Christian life in Africa... faith, fairness, and forgiveness.

A fantastic read. This intriguing novel will keep you engaged until the very end. Traversing the lessons learned from the past, the Bible, a ghost named Mary Margaret, ancient bush rituals, history and human nature, D.A. Winstead has traced the journey of a family impacted by the Sharpeville massacre in 1960. He brilliantly encapsulates the period in South Africa that followed that fatal day many years past. Half a century later, Sarah Johnson takes the forefront as a prominent, black confident female with the American Foreign Service. She is searching for something in her life, but unsure of what that might be.

Although successful, Sarah Johnson, still feels a void within herself, but is not sure exactly what that void is. Upon her travels, she is transferred from the London office to South Africa where she will face many battles between good and evil that will forever change her and her perspective in life. In her search for a meaningful existence and in an effort to fill the void, she gains strong allies in South Africa that impact her life more than she could have imagined. She is changed internally through this alliance and through her adventure into the inner workings and understanding of post-apartheid South Africa.

This novel reads like a post-colonial Southern novel filled with tid-bits of history offering glimpses of life in South Africa while intertwining racism in the United States and comparing South Africa's history with that of the U.S. Through the use of fresh perspectives involving the novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," readers will find this book not only historically educational, but inspiring as it leads them to the Cross. This work is truly an enchanting novel to be cherished, giving hope and faith.

Beyond his knack for creating supernatural mysteries, D. A. Winstead, who has worked in American embassies around the globe, brings a special realism to his depiction of the Christian expat living abroad, always offering a fascinating and illuminating perspective into U.S. and world politics as well as the culture, traditions, and history of various lands, usually Christian lands stricken with deep sadness in their pasts. He writes with empathy for his characters and offers catharsis to his readers through the difficult journeys of healing that his characters endure. Far beyond being just thrillers, his novels create understanding of the human condition across many times and cultures.

A staunch fiscal conservative and believer in private enterprise, D.A. (Dennis) Winstead, survived working in Washington, DC, for 23 years before calling it quits in 2010. Based in Atlanta now, he plans on releasing this fourth novel in August (Dragon Bones: Two Angels Leave at Sunrise) and his fifth and final novel (Poets Wine) in December 2013.  On January 1, 2014, he will officially launch the Color Him Father Foundation, a faith-based nonprofit organization designed to strengthen the father figure in Christian families in Africa.

Two Very Special Books - Run, River Currents and The Button Legacy

The Button Legacy Book Description:

"My Dearest Emily...

When you were a little girl, a change occurred in you. You lost a piece of yourself somewhere....But when you were here in Plaster Rock, you bloomed. The stories we told with these buttons made you smile. With your smile came hope.

Repeat the stories you've been told to your own children, never forgetting that God was there in every situation, in every story held inside this box..."

Growing up, Emily Evans of Run, River Currents had always shared a special understanding with her grandfather, John Polk, even when she couldn't fully see beyond the darkness of her father's abuse. Yet John looked to the future in faith to what his God could do.

Years after her grandfather's death, the unexpected delivery of the decorated tin, still brimming with odd-colored buttons, unlocks the joyous memories and lets Emily realize she has finally discovered the secret her grandfather promised lay within the stories of the worn button box.

Told through the eyes of a godly grandfather, The Button Legacy laces together a godly heritage and the power of one man's prayers, offering a lesson of how God's grace can be seen even in the simplest thing--a button.

From the Author:

Instructors of Creative Writing said, "The first book any new writer pens is the book that had to be written." I now fully understand those words. For three gut-wrenching years, my debut book, Run, River Currents, begged to be put to paper. My intent was to write a humorous biography about my mother, a woman who raised a boat-load of children on her own. But for some reason, I could not make the stories resonate, so the humor turned to heartbreak as the story was released from me...coaxed by a writer whose own heart somehow understood the story that was within.

The Button Legacy tells the much happier "rest of the story," as well as the background of my godly grandfather, whom God used in Emily's life to ultimately lead her to Himself. Lacing together a godly heritage and the power of one man's prayers, The Button Legacy offers a lesson of how God's grace can be seen even in the simplest thing—a button.

Author Bio:

Ginger Marcinkowski's debut novel, Run, River Currents, was published in August 2012 and was a 2012 semi-finalist in the ACFW Genesis Awards, also winning an honorable mention in the New England Book Festival in the Spiritual category.

Colorful Voice of God
by
Retha Groenewald 
"You have one opportunity to prove to me God Speaks to us," the chairman said. "On the table are three different objects you can choose from. These objects are to be used with your Bible. We will convene here, in the boardroom, on Monday morning. Each of you will have 10 minutes to convince me that God speaks. The meeting was adjourned.

John and Peter rushed to the table. John grabbed the laptop, and Peter grabbed the Bible software. Jeremiah was left with a set of colored pens.

The three had a busy weekend with little sleep....and it was Monday. Once again they were sitting around the boardroom table. The chairman looked across the table at the three candidates: "John, you may begin. Your ten minutes starts now. Confidently John stood up and began his presentation using the laptop to present a beautifully, organized slideshow. The chairman clapped his hands after the presentation, and John sat down, satisfied.

"Peter, you are next." Peter stood up, and if possible, he was more confident than John. The chairman also clapped his hands when Peter finished his presentation.

"Jeremiah, it is your turn." When Jeremiah stood up, the other two sniggered when they saw what he had in his hands…colored pens and his Bible.

"Sir," Jeremiah addressed the chairman, "May I ask my colleagues some questions during my presentation?" Surprised and intrigued the chairman agreed.

Jeremiah cleared his throat, and said, "I know God speaks to us. The question I needed to answer was how. How do I prove it? This weekend was probably the greatest adventure of my life. God spoke to me in a new and empowering way. I would like to show you today how God is speaking to you and me, every time we open our Bibles.

"John, do you want to hear God's voice?" "Of course," John replied."What about seeing when God is speaking to us?"

"What," John asked surprised. "God speaks in different ways to us every day, wherever we are. The Bible is full of His words," Jeremiah explained, opening his Bible. His Bible had various colored markings on the pages. John and Peter burst out laughing.

Jeremiah smiled, opening his Bible to Luke 18 verses 16 and 17. "The Bible tells us that we should receive the kingdom of God like a child."

"What does the verse have to do with God speaking to us, and us hearing God's voice," the chairman asked.

"The Bible verse was very relevant to me, because the tools I had in my hand were the tools of a child…coloring pens." Jeremiah replied. "The words are the words Jesus Christ spoke. I marked all His words with the color red."

"So what," Peter said sarcastically. "There are many Bibles with Jesus' words marked in red."

"True," Jeremiah continued calmly. "These words in red prove that Jesus speaks to us. Jeremiah turned to the Old Testament. "I have chosen the color of royalty, purple, to mark where God speaks directly in first person," he continued. "God also speaks to us through visions, dreams and angels. Those words I marked with blue. When somebody speaks on God's behalf in the third person, I marked the words with the color brown, and when a passage refers to God speaking, I marked it with green. God also speaks to us through His miracles. I have chosen the color gold for all God's miracles and different acts of God."

The chairman couldn't contain the excitement anymore. "In other words, this written proof shows us, not only that God speaks to us, but how much He speaks to us. Jeremiah, you have truly proven that God speaks to us. I can see it with my own eyes. You have created a God Speaks Bible. We need to share this."

"What about when you don't have your Bible with you," Peter asked. Jeremiah smiled,
"We develop an app for tablets and phones for people to use."

The alarm went off, waking Jeremiah from his dream. "What a strange dream," Jeremiah thought getting out of the bed. "It would be wonderful to have such a Bible. I wonder if my dream can come true." Jeremiah stepped on something. He looked down. "What is a purple pen doing on the floor?"

Christian Book News - Understanding the Bible: Head and Heart by Bob Dowell, PhD

A Must Read ... 

Dr. Bob invites readers to peruse the Bible in PROSEPOE, the new and unique approach utilized in Understanding the Bible: Head and Heart.   He explains that prose speaks to the head, that poetry speaks to the heart, and that PROSEPOE—the juxtaposing of prose and poetry—speaks to both the head and heart simultaneously, thereby providing a perfect format for communicating the dual dimension of Bible narrative, its informational dimension and its spiritual dimension.  PROSEPOE enhances the head's understanding of what it hears and the heart's understanding of what it feels.

Believing his work to be providentially guided, Dr. Bob labored ten years bringing to fruition Understanding the Bible: Head and Heart. Because of length, it is divided into three parts  (Part One: The Old Testament, Part Two: Matthew through Acts, and Part Three: Romans through Revelation).  The work is interpretive Bible summary employing the new genre PROSEPOE, whereby each chapter is dually presented, first in prose then in poetry, for purposes of connecting head and heart in dual understanding.

Dr. Bob views Bible narrative as two dimensional, an informational dimension and a spiritual dimension, thus lending itself perfectly to the PROSEPOE dual interpretative format.  The spiritual dimension can be communicated more effectively through poetic mode because the poet's focus is on experience, on engaging the heart.  And is not the spirit more effectively engaged through the heart?

For example, when Jesus addresses the apostles with the question—"Who do you say I am?"—And Peter correctly answers—"You are the Christ, the Son of the living God"—Jesus replies—"Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man [through the head], but by my Father in heaven [through the heart]" (Matt 15: 15-17).  As Paul later testifies, "it is with your heart that you believe"  (Rom 10:10).

Premise:  spiritual understanding comes primarily through the heart, and the heart is more readily touched through poetry, a genre known to have done so through the ages.  Thus, I submit poetry, by nature experiential, a prudent choice for communicating the spiritual dimension of Bible narrative.  Prose explains.  Poetry transports.  Together, as PROSEPOE, they connect head and heart!

Check out Dr. Bob's PROPOSE theory by viewing it in practice. For a quick sampling of Part One: The Old Testament, the chapter on Jonah entitled "The Big Fish that Swallows" is recommended; for a quick sampling of Part Two: Matthew through Acts, the chapter on John entitled "In the Beginning" is recommended; and, for a quick sampling of Part Three: Romans through Revelation, the chapter on James entitled "Faith without Works" is recommended.

New Christian Book Release - She Must Be Silent by multi-published Christian author Grace D. Balogun

She Must Be Silent by multi-published Christian author Grace D. Balogun speaks of The Great Commission that is bestowed on both men and women.  The Great Commission has been given to all who believe and are faithful. Taking from Paul in Corinthians where he spoke of the need for women to be silent, the author has written a sound biblical perspective answering many questions as to why this was said by Paul.  Giving the context from which he spoke, the author additionally presents to readers the position of women and their roles within church history.  Taking a look back into various roles of prominent women from the Old Testament to the New Testament, the author comes to the conclusion that women are not only important in the plans and purposes of God, but are to be used mightily by God.  The book culminates into discussing the Holy Spirit empowerment that is available to all and that women are to teach, preach and praise the Lord.
 
In this book you will learn Scripture and the prominent roles of many different women and prophetesses that were used by God.  This is an educational book that gives Scripture for instruction and reproof that women are to be included within the church.  Women must not be silent is the author's call and proclamation and within this all are called into the greater glory for Christ Jesus. 

The subject is controversial, but clearly through Scripture the author has given the reader fresh insight into the ways of God and how women have been used of God from the Old Testament to the New Testament.  Speaking the truth in love, the author exhorts women everywhere to serve and love God with all their heart while encouraging women all over the world to further themselves in a deeper intimacy and knowledge of God.  A very well-written, highly recommended read for those men or women that are unsure of a woman's place within the Church.

Be sure to visit Author Grace D. Balogun for more information about She Must Be Silent and other great books by Grace. You may also get your copy of She Must Be Silent at Amazon, in Kindle Edition and at other fine online bookstores everywhere.

FINALIST! International Book Awards - Best New Fiction, Best Mystery/Suspense

For Immediate Release
A CBM Christian Author Press Release

Award winning Christian author, Dale Allan, releases A Prayer for the Devil, a provocative fast-paced murder mystery wrapped in a thoughtful meditation on the intersection of faith and justice.

From beginning to end, this political thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. Twin brothers Luke and Aaron Miller could not lead more different lives. Aaron, a rising political star who manages the campaign of a man many believe will be the nation's next president, embraced his father's Jewish heritage. Luke, on the other hand, honored his mother's faith and entered the priesthood. When Aaron and the candidate he supports are killed in a bombing at a presidential stump speech, the Miller family's core is destroyed. Fear of a terrorist threat grips the nation, but the FBI and the press seem more focused on the death of a presidential candidate than on the other innocent victims like Aaron. Suddenly, Luke begins to feel the lure of a vengeance that is stronger than the bond of faith.

As he falls deeper into the abyss of political intrigue that surrounded his brother's mysterious professional life, Luke is tempted to break his promise to God and reassess his own sense of right and wrong. Luke's comfortable life in Boston collides with the faraway world of the Middle East as he sets out on a journey to unravel the truth behind Aaron's murder. Will he take an eye for an eye? Luke's journey through his own darkness propels him to a shocking ending that will leave readers breathless.
