Therefore, he starts from the root of issues to produce godly fruit. This takes readers within a marriage, individually, or within a small study group, on a journey of self-discovery to enable them to put God back into the picture. Thus, producing a fruitful harvest the way God designed marriage to be enjoyed.

Additionally, the author addresses many of the issues in marriage that can eat away at the root system of a marriage to include: communication style, your love language and conflict resolution. (Honestly, there is so much in the book that all cannot be listed within a review). Within the pages of this book one will learn to view each other as an individual, understand differences and godly roles, while learning to apply godly principles within a marriage that will transform marriages and individuals.

Taking God For Granted ~ A Wake Up Call

Does America Need To Return to Christianity? A.M. Deigloriam addresses this very question. Finally a book that is a wake-up call to America, the complacent, the compromising, the slothful, and all who are disobedient to the Lord’s commands.  This book is not meant to put down anyone, but to lift up and re-focus readers on Christian values that many Americans have lost and/or take for granted. Centered on one of the greatest commandments: Love thy neighbor as thyself - this book takes a look at the position of wealth in America and reminds people that wealth is not to be trusted in, but God who gives to all richly everything to enjoy. With that said, wealth is not meant to be spent on oneself, for purchasing expansive houses or luxury cars, but wealth is meant to help the poor. 

A must read ... The author addresses the notion that the poor are somehow being punished for their sins and don’t deserve help. With a historical look at the original twelve apostles, the author brings readers back with scripture to the core values that this country has lived by, which we are quickly losing, as many Americans have forgotten God and living a holy life.

Highly recommended, with sound biblical teaching and insight, this author has compiled this book to be a reminder to Americans to return back to Christianity. Also, I would go as far to say that every Christian and member of the Body of Christ should read this book. This message is really a “word” from God - and a call to honor God, to also honor all men whom are created in the image of God, revealing an avenue for repentance. (Yes, repentance – another word Americans don’t like to think of which is rarely taught from the pulpit.) Timely in nature, this message speaks to the greed and apathy of a compromising church, as our country seems to be straying farther away from godly policy to man-made policies that are against the core values of America and against God Himself.

Christian Fiction Author John Zelenski gives a frightening account of spiritual warfare, unveiling Satan’s desire to destroy those that are God’s and the Church in The Journal of Ezekiel Walker.  Although fiction, one feels like they are smack dab in the center of all the strange happenings that begin to take place in the life of Ezekiel Walker.  Set in 1945, just after WWII, Walker is returning to his hometown of Walker’s Vale after serving in the CPS (Civilian Public Service Unit).  Upon arrival, and throughout his stay he experiences heart-breaking events that lead him to be overcome in spirit and body.  Without the tender mercies of the Lord, Walker admits he would not have been able to retain his sanity.

This is her own journey through much travail, enduring breast cancer, surgery and breast reconstruction with many complications that led to the heartbreak of a failed marriage of long standing.  Throughout, Bobbie Cole writes with an openness of heart, offering some humor that is refreshing, keeping the reader engaged every step of the way.  Offering hope to the many who believe that God is distant and not involved in our everyday lives, Bobbie describes her encounters with God that changed her life forever.  This is a story worth reading that gives hope to the broken and offers inspiration to those who are on their own faith journey to healing in Jesus Christ.

The Fundamental Nature of the Universe

Christian author Angelo Spadoni  releases Corporate Messiah: 
The Fundamental Nature of the Universe 

Miles Manta has a gift. Blessed with the ability to see things before they happen, he’s led a selfish life enriching himself, overlooking the greater good. However, when a religious awakening drives him to do what’s right, he’ll finally explore the feeling that he’s had all along: his life is meant for a greater purpose. With inspired scientific knowledge and the world on the brink of obliteration, Manta sets out to solve the world’s energy crisis once and for all. He discloses the Fundamental Nature of the Universe, a model of the universe that describes how all matter is constantly changing directions at a resonant frequency in a precise spirographic pattern, and uses this model to produce a new and comprehendible energy equation, rendering E=mc² obsolete. With time rapidly winding down, will Manta’s wonderful gift be able to guide us into a paradise for all living creatures? Or are we doomed to succumb to our own violent self-destruction? And what is the source of his uncanny ability?

An exciting and futuristic new story, Corporate Messiah uses an educational and optimistic approach to hook readers from the very beginning. Filled with captivating science and a thrilling story, this one-of-a-kind novel will appeal to readers from a multitude of different backgrounds. With dramatic storytelling and an insightful message, this exceptional novel is the perfect addition to any reader’s collection.

Not Recommended For The Faint At Heart

David J. Keyser releases Hear Their Tiny Cries ­– addressing the controversial issue of abortion.  With over 19 published works, Dr. Keyser holds 3 Masters Degrees and a PhD in systematic theology.  With a passion for writing, his books encompass mainly Christian principles that include many fascinating novels of fiction. 

Not recommended for the faint at heart, this novel educates and inspires those that would consider abortion – to consider life as an alternative.  Parents of pre-teens are advised, as the book touchs on methods of abortion, physical side effects of abortion, post abortion complications, partial birth abortion procedure, and post abortion symptoms.  As the author notes, "It is time to understand the process of abortion, to stop abortion and to ban abortion."  Let the children live is Keyser's point and the novel is a cry for the tiny voices that go unheard.  An amazing read!

Test Them, Try Them and Depend Upon Them

Deuteronomy 7:9 Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.

God will not go back on His promises or His covenant to His people.  This faithfulness extends to all people in every country, but it does have a condition.  Notice the latter part of the verse which is, “With those who love Him and keep His commandments.”  Many tell the Lord they love Him, but don’t really keep His commandments, or remain in the center of His will.  Some will treat what He wants them to do as if they are only suggestions.  It is not surprising that His protection is withdrawn during a time of need.  Don’t blame the Lord if this happens to you if you have not really remained in the center of His will.

Trust the promises of God, they will NEVER fail you.  Test them, try them and depend on them. If you’re ever going to walk on water, you’re going to have to get out of the boat.

The Power To Overcome

Galatians 5:24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 

Taking control of the carnal nature is a very difficult task for some people, because they frequently fall back into sin.  With some it’s easy losing their temper, with others it might be bad language, gossip, or many other problems.  Why is it so difficult to gain victory over a  situation?  One night a little boy fell out of bed, so his mother asked him why it happened.  He told her he guessed he was too close to the edge he got in.  When you stay too close to the ways of the world, it will be easy to fall back into their ways.  The secret of success in the Christian life is to see how close you can get to the Lord.  Keep a very short list of things you have done wrong by going to the Lord as soon as you are reminded of wrong doing.  He will immediately forgive you, and not hold it against you.
