{ITL}Falling Off the Curb{NRM} is a book of short narratives about growing up as a Christian with an introverted personality. The focus is family, friends, community, and struggling to survive the economic crash. It's about "not fitting in" and trying to come to terms with the person one believes God created them to be.

About the Author
The writer states, "I've been writing all my life and have only published some poetry in a local university magazine. My husband and I are among the fallen from the economic upheaval that began in 2008. Practically overnight we went from a comfortable income to unemployment. It has changed my perspective on everything. I write from an introvert's viewpoint as a Christian, a misfit, and a survivor."

title: War Comes to God's House:

author: William E. Kitchens

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 3.31.2012 • author id: KiW3500612

word count: 500

Content

War came to God's house one night in 1940. Bethel, Germany's world famous refuge for sick and suffering souls, was bombed and many helpless children were killed. The Nazi propaganda machine screamed for revenge against the "British island of murderers," but the Christian underground secretly voiced the fear that the bomb was German. In War Comes to God's House, that secret fear is the key to the lessons of the Nazi reign of terror. Though wide ranging in scope, gleaning bits and pieces of the story from Eden to the destruction of the Third Reich, War Comes revolves around the bombing of Bethel just as the SS "mercy" killers are banging at its doors to remove "unproductive national comrades." Bethel, a Lutheran home for epileptics and other needy souls operating under the creed that ". . . each person is a unique personality, created and loved by God . . .", and its Director, Dr. Friedrich (Fritz) von Bodelschwingh were at the very heart of the German church war. Dr. von Bodelschwingh was the first "Fuehrer" of the Protestant opposition to the Nazis' heretical Reich Church; but, sadly, he was branded a failure. Ironically, or perhaps providentially, the Bethel bombing rehabilitated Bodelschwingh to become a leader of the opposition to euthanasia. His passage through that period, and his monumental, but largely forgotten, statement of a Christian worldview, the Bethel Confession, are both well worth our attention today.

About the Author
The writer, a career geologist and freelance historian, holds a master's degree in religion and philosophy. This manuscript attempts to weave together historical narrative, biography, and philosophy into the story of an embattled remnant of Christian culture struggling against the Nazis' post-Christian culture of death. Though envisioned as something of a "stealth textbook" in its informal style, the scholarship is sound and suitable for upper level Christian education and adult general readership.

title: The Great Soviet Awakening:

author: Tom Kraeuter

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 3.31.2012 • author id: KrT6305012

word count:

Content

The writer cites a recent revival where thousands upon thousands of people were born-again and physically healed. It all happened in Tallinn, Estonia, part of the former Soviet Union. The Communists had forced several different Christian churches of varying backgrounds (Evangelical, Pentecostal, etc.) together into a single congregation. The church was given an ancient, vacant, dilapidated cathedral. The building was located right next door to the KGB headquarters for the entire Western Soviet Union. The Communists had it all figured out. The Christians would be nearby, so the secret police could keep an eye on what was going on there at the church.

About the Author
The writer says, "I happened to be in the right place at the right time. I was privileged to preach at Oleviste Church in Tallinn, Estonia, almost three years ago. Afterward, the former senior pastor told the story of the revival. It took nearly two years of talking and prayer to convince the church leadership to let me write this amazing story. I am a full-time conference/seminar speaker and writer with previously published books with sales totaling a quarter-million copies. Our organization sells multiple thousands of my books every year. Additionally, we have inroads into dozens of churches in this country who trace their roots back to this revival. They would be interested in reading the printed version of the story."

This explores the meaning of faith as experienced by a young man facing military service as well as returning home from training and work of a medic with an infantry unit in the field and at a battalion aid station. A process of uncovering buried emotions follows the return from the war. The author articulates a rationale for Christian nonviolence and develops relationships with refugees, other veterans, and antiwar people. Realistic but hopeful, the book ends with reflections on the meaning of faith from the author's perspective four decades after his year in Vietnam. His conclusions will be thought-provoking for pastors seeking to understand veterans and for veterans reflecting on the meaning of their experience.

Content

For pediatric heart surgeon Hisashi Nikaidoh, MD, a chance encounter near a hospital cafeteria would stay in his mind for years. That was the day he ran into Linda Ojeda. Dr. Nikaidoh had known Linda as the mother of a child who had died at the that hospital years earlier. Now, he discovered, she was working there, along with another mother in the same situation. Then one August morning in 2003, everything changed. Dr. Nikaidoh's son Hitoshi -- who had just graduated from medical school weeks earlier -- was killed in a tragic accident. Although he knew he would see his son again in Heaven, and his faith in God's plan provided comfort, he struggled to pull himself through the weight of his grief. What had the two mothers at the hospital known, he wondered, these women who seemed to have made peace with their losses? In Healing Hearts, Dr. Nikaidoh shares the stories of eight mothers who lost children but found their own way back to generous, fulfilling lives. Their journeys offer readers an uplifting word for us all.

About the Author

title: Dismissing Jesus:

author: Douglas M. Jones

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 1.31.2012 • author id: JoD8384312

word count: 300

Content

The wildly-spreading discussion of radical discipleship or "the way of the cross" is often partial and disjointed. Most of the first wave of authors couldn't interact with recent objections. This book begins with a fresh and simple biblical explanation of key themes of the way of the cross -- weakness, renunciation, deliverance, sharing, love-of-enemies, foolishness, and community--written from a pastoral perspective. Then it takes those themes into even more provocative territory and undermines the pervasive obstacles that keep evangelical Christians from seeing the way of the cross, from the left-right political distinction and an impersonalistic conservatism to skewed but popular notions of providence, sin, salvation, and heaven. It closes with a positive vision of how the way of the cross might shape churches into Christ's holistic city on a hill, and it gives practical advice to individuals and churches about how to get there.

About the Author
The author served as a Senior Fellow of Humanities at New St. Andrews College (MA philosophy; MFA creative writing) and as an associate pastor. He is the co-author of Angels in the Architecture (Canon Press, 1998) and contributed to both Back to Basics (P&R, 1996) and Whatever Happened to the Reformation? (P&R, 2001). Christianity Today's John Wilson selected his satire, The Mantra of Jabez (Canon Press, 2001) as a Top-Ten book of 2001, and his work appeared in Best Christian Writing 2004.

title: The Poor With Me:

author: Philip E. Johnston

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 3.30.2011 • author id: JoP4625611

word count: 150

Content

The writer reports the book is a product of extraordinary experiences in nearly 40 years of medical practice as a Christian family physician in the inner city of Indianapolis. "In these years of medical care, I have recounted many of these stories to scores of medical students whom I have mentored and taught. The educational value the stories have had among these students and the responses from countless retellings with family and other friends has confirmed a many year desire I have had to record them in a way that would engage an even larger audience, particularly in these days of 'Healthcare Reform.' Much in the manner of James Herriot recounting his experiences as a "Country Veterinarian" in the All Creatures Great and Small series, I have written these stories in a reflective, loving and sometimes humorous way as a "Inner City Family Doctor" with the intention of making the lives and medical challenges of the inner city poor resonant for readers of middle America.

About the Author
Dr. Johnston is a board certified family physician still practicing where he always has in an inner city health clinic in Indianapolis. During 38 years of continuing practice, he has used many stories such as these in teaching scores of students and medical residents about indigent care. Since his faith has profoundly influenced both practice location and style of practice, he has shared this intersection between faith and practice in many venues. "My experience would suggest that a book such as this would have wide potential interest in church libraries where social concerns are addressed, and an even broader appeal among students in medicine, nursing, social work and other health care professions, particularly as students are evaluating future career possibilities. Dozens of practicing physicians have expressed an interest in the writing as I've shared selected chapters with them."

Content

The writer states, "While preparing for a Sunday school lesson, I discovered an alternative Sunday school teaching method. The teacher's guide suggested a skit to illustrate the lesson. I wrote my own skit, using scripture and humor to emphasize the point of the lesson. It went over so well with the adult class members that I continued to compose and use them occasionally. I have been encouraged to have my skits published so they may be used in a larger context to teach God's word. These skits are from the Old and New Testaments. They can also be used in terms of biblical character studies, biblical events, or concepts, such as grace, obedience, and faith. Their applications range from traditional Sunday school to youth worship, youth or adult presentations and Bible studies."

About the Author
Steve Flack is a retired Department of Defense quality assurance specialist. During his career, he moved around the southeast United States, allowing him the opportunity to serve as a Sunday school teacher in several different churches and age groups over the last 40 years.

Most examinations of the End Times focus on passages or verses drawn from all over the Bible and then tries to find something in common between them. This work starts with Jesus' description of the End, and uses the Olivet Discourse as the foundation from which all other End Times passages are interpreted. The effort clears up much of the confusion surrounding modern eschatological views and helps you see the End Times with new eyes.

title: Facing His Cross:

author: C.M. Stevens

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 9.24.2009 • author id: StCNonUS09

word count:

Content

The work analyzes the priestly prayer Jesus' offered at the pivotal moment of his earthly ministry. It systematically segments the prayer into three sections-- Jesus' consecration of himself and his sacrifice, his prayer for his disciples and his prayer for all who would come to faith. It suggests rediscovering his words as the remedy for a postmodern world where truth is viewed as relative and sound doctrine is often replaced by pop psychology. Facing His Cross explains Jesus' prayer by citing familiar themes and incidents in Johns' gospel. For example, it explains his purpose by citing his conversations with Nicodemus and a Samaritan woman. It explains his thoughts on wholeness through his healings and exchanges with a cripple at Bethesda and a blind man at Siloam. It expands on his words about manifesting the divine name by analyzing the "I Am" statements in John's record. It defines the rich provisions of joy, faith, purpose and love made possible by the cross and calls us to selfless mission. Today, the cross is out of fashion. This book challenges readers to rediscover it, uphold the truth of the gospel and rediscover the life of wholeness Jesus wills for us.

About the Author
C.M. Stevens is a frequent guest speaker in church services, conventions and other Christian events. In this, his second book, he explains scripture in its historical context and applies a consistent hermeneutic to relate that context to our times. His writing will appeal to readers hungry for spiritual perspective and wanting a faith that articulates a biblical response to an age that rejects even the notion of truth. Mr. Stevens began formal biblical studies in university and holds several degrees or accreditations.

Content

Based on the writer's one-year experience of ministering to a distant relative who had been living a secret lesbian lifestyle, the premise of the book draws on II Timothy 3:1-4 and I Corinthians 15:33. It debunks the myth that homosexuality is a genetic trait and presents lesbianism as a "spirit closely associated, if not synonymous with, the spirit of Jezebel" which seeks to multiply itself using girls/women involved in the lesbian lifestyle to coerce others into embracing it. The aim is to alert girls and women to ten warning signs (each chapter discusses a different sign) that a girl or woman (usually disguised as a friend) has entered their lives with the intent of luring them into a lesbian lifestyle.

About the Author

title: Stories from God:

author: Richard Spillman

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 10.25.2008 • author id: SpR9846608

word count: 234

Content

The Bible is a book of stories of God's interaction with mankind--and that interaction did not stop when the Bible was completed. He continues to write the same stories in our lives today. The manuscript records some of those new stories. Each chapter focuses on a particular type of story (e.g., answered prayer, God's control, etc). Each story type includes a biblical counterpart and each chapter ends with a summary that ties together the biblical themes of the stories. In many ways this book is similar to the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series but with a much stronger biblical base.

About the Author
Dr. Richard Spillman served as the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship advisor at Pacific Lutheran University for 20 years. Other ministry experiences include teaching adult Sunday school at Grace Community Church for 20 years, serving as pastor for the Downtown Crossing, a small church for the homeless, and teaching a summer course training pastors to paint churches in the tribal regions of teaching the Philippines. Other marketing considerations: Rachel Hickson and Loren Cunningham have contributed stories. The churches in the book (several are quite large) would support the sales.

title: A Stranger Every Sunday: My Year of Visiting Churches

author: Emilie Babcox

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 10.24.2008 • author id: BaE0810808

word count: 325

Content

After more than thirty years as a pastor's wife, the author reports, "I found myself 'out of a job' at the end of 2006, when my husband resigned his position as pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and became a Roman Catholic layman. This gave me a great opportunity to visit other churches--lots of them. Attending a different church every Sunday for a year, I went from being a church insider to an outsider--a stranger every Sunday. I attended large services and small (at times I was the only person in the pews). I visited a house church, a house mass, and a church that holds services in a funeral home. I sat in gorgeous cathedrals, stood for three hours in a Russian Orthodox service, and slept on a board in a hermitage at a Franciscan monastery. Each visit caused me to reflect upon my own history as a Lutheran, Congregationalist, charismatic, Jesus people, mainline Presbyterian follower of Christ (yes, it's been quite a ride)."

About the Author
Emilie Babcox, PhD, writes for In Trust, a quarterly journal for members of governing boards of theological schools. She was baptized Lutheran, confirmed in a Congregational church, married in an Assemblies of God church, and is the wife of a Presbyterian pastor who converted to Roman Catholicism. Along the way she was a member of one of the nondenominational, charismatic "Jesus People" communities that flourished in the early seventies. She has met many different kinds of church people, and usually likes them all.

author: Gerry Rzeppa

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 9.24.2008 • author id: RzG4213408

word count: 48

Content

This is a response to the "new atheists" that illustrates the Pope's pronouncement that "each of us is the result of a thought of God" in clear, non-denominational terms. Illustrated, the work rhymes and can be read aloud in just ten minutes; yet it contains a piercing analysis of the shortcomings of the materialist's position and striking allusions to the doctrines of the Trinity, sin, death, sacrifice, redemption, and resurrection. Widely accessible, with simple but elegant illustrations.

About the Author
Poet and illustrator Gerry Rzeppa was startled by the prominence of three books promoting atheism on Amazon's list of Top Ten sellers, including Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion. As an unknown shepherd of the sheep, he hopes to confront this modern Philistine giant with his sling (his book) and a stone (the ultimate question), to meet him "in the name of the Lord."

word count:

Content

This is the first in a possible series that chronicles the world-changing actions of everyday Christians at critical junctures in history. The true life actions of two Christians are featured including: Following the crusades, the leader of the Ottoman Empire created the largest Islamic army ever assembled to rid the world of Christianity. His plan was to eliminate the last remaining remnant of the Christian army at Malta, and then move onto Europe. One Englishman, Oliver Starkey, answered the call for help to become the sole English volunteer. Sir Oliver formed the women, children and other non-combatants into a fighting regiment that untimely repelled the ten-thousand strong army. The true story, presented through his eyes, provides inspiration for today. David Bushnell was a simple farmer at the outset of the American Revolution. From his home in Connecticut, he witnessed Washington's inability to maneuver due to the blockading British Fleet. With the help of his brother, local pastor and Benjamin Franklin, Bushnell invented the propeller and the first working submarine to break the blockade and free Washington's army. This true story highlights an unsung Christian inventor and his critical role in forming a new nation.

About the Author
Shawn Shallow is the author of the critically acclaimed Rescue at the Top of the World with reviews including: Midwest Book Review: "Any reader seeking true-life adventure should look no further than Shawn Shallow's book: it keeps you on the edge of your seat - and the story is entirely real, detailing hardship, courage, and success. Author Shawn Shallow re-creates the story from old journals and his smooth narrative reads like dramatic fiction but with all the facts at hand." Shawn has a graduate and undergraduate degree from Marquette University and has held faculty positions at two universities. He is an evangelical Christian and member of Pelham Baptist Church in Alabama. He contends there are no competing books on these subjects.

title: A Mountain in the Distance

author: Kalani Willis

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 8.24.2008 • author id: WiK0109308

word count: 165

Content

Originally created as a personal memoir, this midlife story has been re-written in novel form although it remains a true story. The book reveals challenges around loneliness and the fear of being alone in the aftermath of divorce. A critical component of the story line is deliberately hidden from the view of the reader involving the narrator's relationship with her father. The crisis of the story is eventually resolved when the narrator is able to face and accept regrets of the past. Comparable to the discovery of true love during adulthood in many popular novels this work extends beyond fabricated fiction, generally created purely for entertainment, as it emphasizes a life driven by faith. The book sends a message of hope and inspiration, reinforces the importance of faith, and stands to prove the difference acceptance can make in one's life.

About the Author
Author of The Best of Intentions, published by iUniverse in 2005. Participation in book signing and public speaking engagements at a local level. Graduate of Burbank Hospital School of Nursing affiliated with Fitchburg State College. Member of the Christian Writers Guild. The ideas for this book have been supported by author Philip Yancey.

title: Jesus My Son:

author: Mary R. Bailey

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 7.18.2008 • author id: BaM4060108

word count: 150

Content

We know a lot about Jesus' ministry, death and resurrection, but very little about the young man and his early childhood. How was his life? Were there brothers and sisters? Perhaps early miracles? How did Mary feel about all the events of the miraculous birth? Gabriel promised her a kingdom, but she traveled over 90 miles on a donkey, found a makeshift bed in a stable full of animals, gave birth to a bouncing baby boy and was immediately visited by a group of dirty, smelly, but adoring shepherds. What in the world had she gotten herself into? Using the little we are told about Jesus' childhood, adding research, in-depth Bible study, and an imagination that God allows to run a little wild at times, this journal offers some maybes that could have easily happened during Jesus' life. This manuscript does not contradict any scripture; it just fills in the blanks between the few lines that are written of his childhood.

About the Author
Mary Bailey is a Christian mother and grandmother who enjoys writing stories of her childhood to preserve them for her grandchildren. She has also written some articles for small publications.

The manuscript tells of ordinary people who showed extraordinary faith and courage during hurricane Katrina and in its aftermath. The characters testify to God's redemption of the storm as they discovered a deeper faith in God, a sense of kinship crossing racial/socio-economic lines, stronger family relationships and material blessings. Included are the stories of an 89 year-old woman trapped ten days and nights in a windowless room, a three-person civilian team connected only by the internet that led to the rescue of over 100 people and a pastor who swam into his neighborhood to rescue two senior adult neighbors, returning later to rescue ten more. Included also are stories of sacrifice for others: one couple left their business with a friend and directed a New Orleans volunteer organization for two years, without pay; a Texas church adopted a homeowner, investing thousands of dollars in materials and labor to rebuild his home.

This is the memoir of a country boy attempting to redefine his own faith as he reevaluates the evangelical Christianity of his rural Pennsylvania upbringing. God's Country is a deeply researched memoir which addresses historical and modern American evangelical Christianity through the experiences of a young Pennsylvanian. The book focuses on the singularity of rural evangelical churches, which tend to vary widely in doctrine and practice. Moving from Prohibition-era evangelism and masculine Christianity to present-day Navigators' Bible study groups and Christian commercialism, God's Country is simultaneously cultural critique, academic research, and personal inquiry.

title: Credo:The Outline of Reality

author: Stanley Dokupil

category: nonfiction • subcategory: General Interest • date submitted: 12.31.2012 • author id: DoS9803112

word count:

Content

Credo is an in depth exposition of the Apostles’ Creed. For centuries Christians have recited the words of the Creed, but few have grasped just how radical these words are or what they signified in the age in which they were written. The book takes the reader on a historical journey from the age of the Apostles to the present age and traces the social and intellectual history of the in-between ages. Using insights from Owen Barfield, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dorothy Sayers and others, Credo explains the unique and mostly misunderstood worldview of pre-scientific humanity giving special attention to what was lost and what was gained as the ancient world was superseded by the modern. This understanding not only uniquely opens up the words of the Creed but demonstrates how it is a very relevant document for the present age. The book is written using language that accessible to the average reader but yet stimulating for those fluent in philosophy and historiography

About the Author
The writer holds the BA (Philosophy), MA (Humanities, Social & Intellectual History). He studied with Francis Schaeffer at L’Abri. He was the co-creator of Hidden Kingdom a role playing game based on the Arthurian Legends. He has been a management consultant for over 20 years for several major US corporations.

title: The Unguided Arrow: Why Evolution Suggests the Existence of God

author: Leigh Atkinson

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 2.8.2013 • author id: AtL2878713

word count: 40,000 words (rough guess)

Content

Darwin’s theory of evolution may seem to suggest that God doesn’t exist.  It’s often used to support this claim, by well known biologist and atheist Richard Dawkins, among others.   They maintain evolution is enough to explain the complexity of the life around us, and that if God isn’t needed to explain things He ought not to be assumed.

In this lively, amusing, and informal essay Leigh Atkinson, for 20 years a math professor at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, argues persuasively and simply that Dawkins and his colleagues are wrong, that evolution when examined closely points to God as the only source of life, complex or otherwise.

How could so many atheists have been so wrong for so long?  Using a few simple and profound ideas from mathematics, philosophy, and history, Dr. Atkinson shows that evolution was very nearly certain to produce complex life forms.  Things that are certain are caused by something outside the universe, and there is only one thing, or Being, outside the universe.

Christians who worry about evolution that evolution will invalidate their faith, should read this book, and relax---God really is behind it all.

About the Author

Leigh Atkinson holds a PhD in mathematics and has taught for more than 20 years at the University of North Carolina--Asheville. He has published a variety of articles on the history of mathematics and related subjects, and often speaks at conferences.

title: Harmony Redeeming Discord

author: Don Hurst

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 8.26.2013 • author id: HuD1939013

word count: 68,595 words

Content

Unforgettable characters on Maryland's Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake bay in the village of Harmony, where the author was born and reared, wrestle with heartrending discordances. The author's grandmother said that Harmony should have been called Discord. Since Harmony was only twelve victorian houses, one country store, one church but three beer gardens, she was probably right. It's where a former plantation owner turned gun duelist and gambler shot and killed twenty-six opponents, where a promising thrirteen-year-old school-girl was murdered, where a loved and greatly respected man disappeared, and too many fathers had drinking problems.

Harmony's harsh and jarring stories as well as endearing and uplifting stories movingly engage readers interested in a historical, biographical, and spiritual ironic blend. Readers may also realize that those beyond the confines of Harmony--regardless of were they were born and reared, whether in a large, medium or small city, a town, a village, a ranch, a farm, an apartment, a little house, a McMansion, a tent, or a car on the streets--may be encouraged and helped to deal with their own village discordances.

Please believe it is possible to redeem fairest harmony from ugly discord.

title: Business by the Book: A Primer for a God-Honoring Walk in the Workplace

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 6.30.2014 • author id: LiR3294014

word count: 53,519

Content

What does God expect from me at my place of employment?  How does my career coincide with the will of God?  Or, does it?  What does it really mean to be successful from God’s perspective? 

Every devout Christian desiring to please his or her Savior has asked these questions time and again.  The problem in postmodern Christianity is that we are not looking for the answers in the right place – the Word of God!

It is so: the Bible remains our absolute rule for faith and practice.  Yet, unfortunately, many Christians simply do not know or give earnest pursuit to know what the Scriptures say about what may be the single greatest claim upon our time and energy, i.e., our work.

God created us to work and He does have expectations.  In Business by the Book, the author seeks to make plain from the Book, i.e., the Bible, those expectations that God has for His children in the various arenas and venues of the everyday work environment.  Topics include defining true success, exercising authority, understanding the nature of my accountability to God, and others.

About the Author

Randy Livingston, a licensed CPA and currently Vice President for Financial Planning at a private university in Florida, has 39 years of practical business experience in private industry and higher education.  As a dedicated student of the Scriptures and faithful teacher in the local church, he applies scriptural truth learned first-hand to the workplace environment for the benefit of today's Christian who wants to honor his or her Lord in their vocation.  His teaching ministry includes the local church, church camps, Christian schools, mission fields and is recognized for its faithfulness to the Scriptures.

author: Russell Bowers

word count: 94,000

Content

We can shoot each other, shout at each other, snub each other ... or try to understand each other. Different faith communities need to work hard at this understanding business.

One way we can do that is by reading one another’s scriptures. What do we discover? First, the religions do not teach the same things. But second, each urges at least one idea that is true and good. Stringing these together creates a path among the world religions that leads us home.

Each chapter proposes one metaphysical or spiritual reality of our universe, such as that God is worth knowing, we are both physical and spiritual beings, and the present moment is primary. Passages from one of the world’s religions then follow to elucidate each proposal.

Through such a first-hand introduction to different ideas and styles, the reader's mind opens to a neighbor's thinking and values. The book also suggests how Buddhist suffering, the Confucian ideal person, Jesus’ crucifixion, and the Native American love of nature, for example, can fit together. Sympathetic understanding can encourage more amicable co-existence and effective communication.

About the Author

Russ Bowers' published Ph.D. dissertation compared Kyoto Zen with evangelical Christianity.  He served seven years in Cambodia and Singapore in Christian leadership development and theological education.  Cambodia is Theravada and Folk Buddhist, and Singapore multi-religious.  He has travelled throughout and written on South and Southeast Asia.  Dr. Bowers has presented papers on interreligious dialogue and Buddhist-Christian issues in both Thailand and the USA.  Several of these have been published, along with commissioned work for World Vision International and Baker Academic.  After his service in Southeast Asia he taught world religions, history, and missions at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Texas.

word count: 30,000

Content

In October, 2015, Oprah Winfrey aired a documentary entitled Belief in which she attempted to validate the inner spiritual yearning she believes is common to all of humanity.  "We're all yearning for the same thing," she said, suggesting all human beings are looking for the answers to life's biggest questions: Why are we here? Where did it all come from? What does it all mean?

She skillfully profiled the faith practices of over two dozen people from around the globe and concluded: "All of these very human questions are rooted in a shared understanding across time and space, an understanding that our lives are both an undeniable miracle and an unsolved mystery, at least for now."

Oprah and I share a common faith, we are both Christians.  I have no reason to believe that she is not as committed as I am to "handling accurately the word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15b).  Therefore, when she concludes that the whole thing remains "an unsolved mystery," I am obliged to assume that there is more about the Christian faith she would like to understand.  Thus, in the spirit of explaining to her "the way of God more accurately" (Acts 18:26b), I write this book.

About the Author

(Working Title: Dear Oprah, Mystery Solved!)

Maurie Daigneau is recently retired from 35 years as a business owner/entrepreneur. His more significant life journey of some 45 years has been toward the development of his faith.  It is a journey which began in the summer of 1971 while attending a Fellowship of Christian Athletes summer conference.  A passionate student of the Bible, he has been teaching Bible study groups for almost four decades and hold a Masters degree in Theological Studies.  Maurie and his wife Susie have lived in Wisconsin for 41 years and have five grown children. They are also the proud grandparents of ten, so far.  Maurie has previously self-published a faith-life perspective which was originally written solely for his children.

title: The Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ: Medical and Historical Perspectives

author: Joseph Bergeron

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 6.10.2017 • author id: BeJ4603317

word count: 48500

Content

This book focuses on the medical physiology of Jesus’ death and analysis of hallucination hypotheses for the disciples’ belief in his resurrection. Jesus identified himself as the Son of God, meaning that he was God, and the Messiah of Hebrew prophecy. Who Jesus claimed to be is foundational to why his death is significant. Evidence is explored as to why the Gospels can be trusted as reliable and authentic eyewitness testimony. Review of the historical and political context provides insight into the events leading to Jesus’ execution. Roman crucifixion practices are described in detail.

 

Jesus’ cause of death was crucifixion, but the physiological mechanism that ultimately caused him to die has been a point of disagreement for centuries. This book provides medical commentary on the biblical descriptions of Jesus’ death and analyses of differing opinions for the physiologic mechanism that ultimately caused him to die. It further explains why Traumatic Hemorrhagic Shock is the most plausible mechanism.

 

This is the first book to provide a medical analysis of hallucination hypotheses for the disciples’ belief in Jesus resurrection. Hallucinations hypotheses are unable to logically explain away Jesus’ resurrection. This book provides a unique apologetic argument for the validity of the Gospel accounts of Jesus' death and resurrection.

 

Genre: Christian Apologetics

This is a book that tells the story (Kathy's story) of our neice who ended her life. 

The Setting and Purposes of the Book

 

Trying to understand what is going on in a person’s mind just prior to the final decision to end their own life seems beyond our grasp.  Often we are given information that attempts to explain the act of suicide; we are told of their depression, their pain, their grief.  We are even at times made aware of the contents of what is referred to as the ‘suicide note.’  The despair and finality involved when someone takes their life leaves those left behind grasping for information and answers.  These thoughts are true on a cognitive level as one who has been involved in pastoral care ministry for over 30 years; however, when the one who took her life was in our own family…

Roberts has served in the field of pastoral care for many years, serving as Director of Caring Ministries at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church in Englewood, Co.  She is the author of "Helping Those Who Hurt" published by NavPress in 2009, still available and used in classes at Denver Seminary.  Barb has taught and lectured over the years in the areas of caring for people, helping people through grief and loss, walking alongside of others through life crises including the tragedy of suicide.

“Was there life before Contemporary Christian Music?” is a question that few under the age of 40 are able to answer with any certainty today. The so-called “worship wars” of recent years have polarised opinion and split congregations. Not that this should surprise us. Christian music has sparked controversy ever since its first mention in the book of Genesis.

The history of Christian music, in fact, closely mirrors the history of the Christian church, with leaders such as King David, Martin Luther, Charles Wesley, D.L. Moody and Billy Graham all contributing significantly to the genre.

In Matthew 13;52, Jesus said “Therefore every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household, who brings out of his treasure things that are new and fresh and things that are old and familiar.”  (Amplified Bible) Churches would do well to start drawing from the whole heritage of Christian music in their worship services. It is hoped that this book will provide them with the resources to do so.

title: Money for Good: Leading the Financial Function of Faith-Based Nonprofit Organizations

author: Chris Bryan

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 3.10.2018 • author id: BrC3208218

word count: 81000

Content

A life in Christian ministry is supposed to be filled with prayer, preaching, teaching, counseling and serving others.  Has it, instead, become filled with meetings with bankers, accountants, business-minded donors, program expense and fundraising efficiency ratios?

God calls people with special gifts and talents to minister to others.  Their training, talents, skills and commitment, however, often thrust them into roles that require managing staff, programs, budgets, endowments, contracts, loans and balance sheets.  They are confident in their talents in ministry, but not in business and financial matters.  This book, Money for Good: Leading the Financial Function of Faith-based Nonprofit Organizations provides an overview of nonprofit financial management and leadership in simple language and concepts so that these leaders can direct these areas with more confidence.

The author distills the financial leadership of faith-based organizations into four fundamental roles: 1) being a servant leader committed to strong communication, 2) being a competent financial steward, 3) being a shrewd strategic planner, and 4) being a fierce guardian of the organization’s resources.

About the Author

Christopher Bryan is an experienced financial leader and CFO.  He is a CPA, CGMA and a CFE.  Chris holds a BA in Finance, an MBA, an MA in Communications and a PhD in Christian Leadership.  Chris believes this book will be a valuable resource for pastors, administrators, principals and executive directors of faith-based nonprofit organizations.  Chris has published journal articles and presented at national conferences and will aggressively market the book through writing and presenting.

If you are an eleven- to fifteen-year-old girl in the United States or Canada today, you probably have dreams about the future--what you are going to be or do when you grow up. You probably know that you are valued and loved by your parents and grandparents. You have challenges, yes, but you also have almost limitless opportunities compared to many girls in other parts of the world. This book is the story of how you got to where you are. Rights and opportunities for girls are not automatic. They were slowly and sometimes painfully won. And this history of girls is actually part of a much larger story, the story of how God's kingdom project began and is still moving forward today. This story is cosmic in scope, but as you will see, each girl's role is vital. A History of Girls and How Jesus Made a Difference is a must-read for all girls who long to see how they fit into the big picture.

title: THE WORLD WE CANNOT SEE - What the Bible has to say about angels, evil spirits, and Satan.

author: Simon van Bruchem

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 7.16.2018 • author id: vaS615518

word count: 27000

Content

There is a world we cannot see. Although most Western cultures are happy to dismiss any idea of angels or demons as the stuff of imagination, the Bible asserts that they are real. You can read accounts of angelic visitations, temptations by Satan, possession by evil spirits, and the reality of fortune telling and sorcery. Perhaps this makes you uncomfortable; perhaps it fascinates or terrifies you.

This book will help Christians understand what the Bible has to say about angels, demons, evil spirits and spiritual warfare, including addressing questions like:

  • Are angels real?
  • How does Satan work in the world?
  • Should Christians be afraid of Satan?
  • Can Christians be possessed by evil spirits?
  • Are Christians called to engage in spiritual warfare?
  • How should Christians deal with the occult?

Investigating the unseen world through Gods word will help us be better informed and confident as we understand the victory of Christ more deeply as well as the security we have through faith in him.

word count: 60234

Content

"The Bread of Heaven" is a nonfiction general interest book about Jesus as a person.  Millions of people know Jesus as Lord, Savior, Messiah, and Son but do not know Jesus as Person.  I believe that by examing the words, deeds, character, and personality traits of Jesus of Nazareth as recorded in the New Testament from a psychological perspective we can know Jesus as a person.  We may come to see Jesus in a new light with new understanding.  My own journey to knowing Jesus for a second time began years ago while working as a clinical psychologist with an abandoned faith.  Although i treated many for depression, I  experienced a severe depression called dystymia.  My path to restortation of faith and abundant joy began with knowing Jesus for a second time by using a psychological perspective in my study of the gospel accounts. I came away with a new appreciation and a new perspective of the man Jesus.  I came to know Jesus as Person.  My objective in writing the book is to have those interested in Jesus, in the words of William Barclay, "see him more clearly, and for believers to love him more dearly."        

 

About the Author

I am the author of two previous published nonfiction books.  My books are "Decisive Parenting" (2007) and "Parenting Difficult Children" (2010).   Both books are in print and were published by Jason Aronson, Inc.  I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  I have 30 years of  clinical experience evaluating and treating  mental health disorders.

title: Raising Ebenezers: Recognizing God's Miracles in Your Life

author: Richard Eddy

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 11.13.2018 • author id: EdR9562418

word count: 47500

Content

Attack dogs that didn’t attack; horrible collisions that almost happened, but didn’t; an injury that healed within an hour, eyeglasses retrieved from the rocky bottom of a deep lake within minutes of prayer. These, and fifty other examples of present-day miracles experienced by the author, give evidence to his belief that God still intervenes miraculously in the world. God protects, heals, leads, and sometimes even rebukes us as signs of his divine power and wisdom – and as signs of his loving compassion for people.

Going beyond just reporting such miracles, Pastor Eddy weighs them in the light of Scripture and deals with questions about counterfeit miracles, seeking miracles improperly, and the disappointment that comes when a prayed-for miracle does not happen.

Pastor Eddy believes you may have experienced such miracles yourself – without knowing it. He hopes this book will not only help you recognize such events in your life, but also encourage your faith. Join him and the prophet Samuel as they raise Ebenezers – memorial stones – to glorify the One whose miracles they are.

About the Author

Rev. Richard Eddy holds the M.Div. degree. He served twenty-two years as pastor of the largest congregation in the American Association of Lutheran Churches, and continues as a Pastor Emeritus. He has preached or presented first-person monologues in numerous churches and schools, including at two national church gatherings. He currently has one book in print.

He also writes a blog called “Pastor Eddy’s Blog” at pastor-richeddy.com.

title: Every Believer Confident: Apologetics for the Average Christian

author: Mark Farnham

category: nonfiction • subcategory: general interest • date submitted: 12.20.2018 • author id: FaM1760118

word count: 50000

Content

The purpose of this book is to equip the average Christian to effectively engage any unbeliever he meets with the gospel while answering objections raised against the Christian faith. As average Christians read the book, they will come to see that they have the ability to practice the proposed model and will be motivated to do so.

The book begins with a look at 1 Peter 3:15-16 and the call for each Christian to be prepared to give an answer to objections raised against the Christian faith. It then looks at God’s description of the heart and mind of every unbeliever. Once we understand that the unbeliever is suppressing the truth of God, we can begin to ask questions that challenge their unbelief. By setting in contrast the truth of Christ with the unbeliever’s worldview we can show how only the gospel truly answers the most important questions.

By understanding that the Holy Spirit is the one who changes hearts, we can be free to plant and water seeds of the gospel with no pressure, because it is not our job to convert anyone. This was Paul’s stated method in 1 Corinthians 3 and his practice throughout the book of Acts. We then look at simple ways to present the gospel clearly.

We touch on the basics of logic and show readers how to recognize and refute logical fallacies. Practical strategies for conversation are given, along with opportunities to respond to a case study so the reader can practice his growing skill. The book concludes with several chapters on the key doctrinal beliefs necessary for effective apologetic encounters.

Content

Most people like stories with heroes, where good triumphs over evil, love is found and the ending is happy.  The question is why?  Referencing the works of Joseph Campbell, J.R.R. Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis I have constructed a narrative apologetic based on a single story told and retold through out human history.  Using the movies to build my case, I help the reader see the recurring pattern of this single tale and how it points to the Christ.  At its core is a story of hope. The book focuses on a unique subject matter that most believers are unaware of and that non-beleivers should find intriguing.  Because most people watch and enjoy movies, the book offers a broad appeal to men and women both young and old. 

About the Author

My educational credentials are a Bachelor of Science in Theology from Nyack College and a Masters in Professional Studies from Alliance Theological Seminary.  I have served as an Ordained Pastor for the Christian and Missionary Alliance for 40 years.  I have served in the same country church for nearly 38 years, in that time the fellowship has grown from about 10 to 200.  I have been happily married for 40 years, have one son and one grandson.  I enjoy movies and often use film clips as illustrations in my sermons. There is a lot to be learned in the study of secular films that Christians often overlook.  I have an interest in apologetics and have taken several graduate level courses on the subject.

Most people picture heaven as billions of miles up above the earth. They also imagine angels as invisible beings floating around them with the ability to become visible at certain times. God is pictured as a powerful white-bearded man that hears everyone's prayers and has super powers. What if God actually dwelt in more dimensions than the three man lives in? What if angels lived in a higher dimension that allows them access to slip into man's three-dimensional realm? What if heaven was a real place with locality and dimensionality and it was one millimeter from where man is presently? What are higher spacial dimensions? What is more than on time dimension mean? This book takes a look at understanding what the next spatial dimension is and where it is located. The Bible assumes the spiritual realm as reality as it is seen from Genesis to Revelation. Science has in the last few hundred years opened the door to higher dimensions mathematically. This books shows where science and the Bible intersect and gives the reader a new look at the spiritual realm. You will never see God, heaven, hell, angels, or time the same again.

title: What Would Jesus Say? Questions about Faith and Life

author: Richard Youngblood

word count: 51000

Content

This work began as a weekly question-answer column in a local newspaper for more than twelve years.  With encouragement from readers and preacher/pastors, I selected seventy of these essays, edited and organized them under eleven general headings.

In confusion and doubt, both believers and unbelievers often ask questions about life today, faith in Jesus Christ and the manner they observe it in practice. Can I believe and trust God in view of the realities of our world today?  Is there real evidence that Jesus lived?  Can one live a sensible and practical life of faith in this present scientific world?  It has been my hope that this might instruct and fortify the faith of believers while helping create faith and overcome doubts in unbelievers.  Perhaps readers will see in these pages the wisdom and practical value in a life of faith in Jesus and his teachings.

These essays are not intended to be scholarly treatises.  Instead, they are brief, concise and to the point.  There is much more that can be said about any of these topics, and there are many questions that are not addressed.  This compendium on various topics might well serve as a reference work for Christians and a resource that can be shared with unbelievers.

About the Author

Education: B.A. in Bible from Lipscomb University in Nashville; M.Div. and D.Min. at Harding School of Theology in Memphis, TN. In retirement, I am serving as volunteer faculty member and Dean of Faculty for NationsUniveristy, a full-accredited online Christian university with approximately 2,000 active students around the world.

Church Ministry: Over fifty years ministry in Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama for nine churches ranging from 200-500 attendees.  Upon invitation, I have preached at churches in eleven states and three foreign countries: Scotland, England and Indonesia. Worked with a small church in Glasgow, Scotland, for two and half years.  In most recent years, invited to speak at several churches in West Kentucky.

Writing: A few articles published in Christian magazines.  Began writing newspaper column while living in Memphis, TN, and briefly in West Helena, ARK.  In addition to writing for the newspaper in Murray, KY, I have written numerous lesson guides and teacher notes for the adult classes at University Church of Christ in Murray and other churches.

Book promotion: Each year I continue to attend Bible Lectureships and conferences at universities when possible.  I can promote and sell books on those occasions. In addition to the University church in Murray, I have maintained contact with other churches I served in the past.

Content

The Missing Peace is a christian book focused on the journey of discovering peace through Jesus Christ amidst the chaotic and busy world we live in today. This book contains Scripture, Bible stories, and relatable personal stories all from a millennial perspective. The truth is that the only way to truly experience true and lasting peace is through Jesus and living in relationship to Him. Above all else, this is what I hope people will understand after reading my book: peace is attainable with, through, and in Jesus despite life's circumstances. I think my millennial perspective will set my writing apart as well as engage readers in different seasons of life while making peace feel possible.
