Examine Your Faith!

examine your faith by pamela christianExamine Your Faith!: Finding Truth in a World of Lies Well-meaning people want to believe that all roads lead to the same God and heaven. But wanting something to be true is far different from truth lining up with reality. Unless you make an intentional effort to examine what you believe and why you believe it, it’s quite possible you are living your life on the basis of a lie, and don’t know it. • What is truth? • Is it relative or absolute? • Is it personal or universal? • What are the differences among the various religious faiths? Can they be blended? • Are we creating faith—a belief system—that is impotent by trying to accept all religions as equal? (This book has been endorsed by Josh McDowell, Dr. Craig Hazen, and Dan Story.)

Advanced Copy - The Emotionally Destructive Marriage

I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of The Emotionally Destructive Marriage.  It's a great book written by author Leslie Vernick.  This book is targeted towards a woman audience though, so personally I would not say that it is a perfect read.  The key points covered by this book include learning how to identify damaging behaviors; gain the skills to respond wisely; promote healthy change; stay safe; understand when, why, and even how to leave; as well as recognize that God sees and hates what is happening to one in a bad unfortunate situation.

The author is a licensed clinical social worker and relationship coach.  She has over 30 years experience in the field and previously written books on this subject.

The book is divided into 3 parts, in a total of 13 chapters. The first part discusses how to see your marriage clearly.  Are you in a good marriage?  Or bad?  The second part talks about change and the theory behind how things can get better.  The third part talks about steps you can take to drive change.

1) Identify the problem.
2) Come up with solutions.
3) Execute!

It's like a how-to guide to resolve marriage and relationship issues!  Good read!

Note: I received a review copy of this book from the publisher Waterbrook Multnomah.  Check it out!

Fearless about SEAL Team SIX

Fearless about SEAL Team SIX.  A deep story about Adam Brown, a Navy SEAL who fought in Afghanistan.  It is a story about the extremes in the military and how that tied into faith, family and love.  While in the military, not only was there a war against the enemy, there is a war against one's own habits and impulses.  In this story, we see one's drug addiction and perseverance to become a leader, the best of the best.  While combating personal impulses and the enemy, there is a decision that needed to be made, what is the right thing to do?  Is utilitarianism a good ideal to follow?  Should we think of the big picture and forget the ultimate sacrifices?

Eric Blehm is a vivid writer about military stories from the recent Afghanistan war after 9/11.  In the beginning of the book, we already find out that the main character, Adam Brown dies.  So, we already know what happens. But the author is able to craft the story in fine words, such that the suspense remains!

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher Waterbrook Multnomah.  Check it out!

God's Solution to America's Economic Crisis

The author claims that this book is God's solution to America's economic crisis.  Economics should not be a political issue.  It shouldn't have to deal with left-wing or right-wing.  It should follow the teachings of the bible.

The book is divided into nine parts which applies the beliefs of God to the view points of different groups of people, ranging from America's founders, Adam Smith, John Maynard Keynes, FDR, Alan Greenspan, Jim Wallis, Karl Marx, IRS and everyday Americans like you and me.

In summary:

"The greater the freedom, the greater the wealth. The greater the government, the greater the poverty."

YES - FREE MARKET IS GOOD!  It is what makes America powerful and strong!

To learn more about the book, I would check out the awesome website -

Chad Hovind  is a great author!

Romeo and Juliet, Westside Story, Beloved Enemy...

"Beloved Enemy" is a novel set in the Civil War.  We follow the story of Jenny.  She is faithful to her home country, the southern half of the United States.  But she is in love with a northerner, from the other half of the country.  What to do!?  Oh, the suspense!!

Essentially, this is a great book with a similar theme as Westside Story and Romeo & Juliet.  There is also a Christian theme in the novel which I find to be great!! 

If you like American history, war stories, romance,  and books that reinforce strong Christian values, I highly recommend this book!!

This is definitely a good read!!

God's Extraordinary Calling to Ordinary Men

Troy Meeder writes this exciting book, Average Joe: God's Extraordinary Calling to Ordinary Men.  It discusses how ordinary people add up to make a big difference in serving God.  Personally, I thought this book can have parallels in real life, where each person doing something small can lead to a huge impact in the society we live in.

The first section is about two stories: The Island and The Hole, both documenting about life as youth and growing up.

The second section describes several personas.  We meet everyday people: the gardener, the mark, the soldier, the cowboy and the mentor.  Everyday Average Joes end up become extraordinary people by doing their part.  We see resemblance in all large organizations, where each person's work adds up to a bigger picture.

Later, we hear stories about the friend, the test, the deep, the boy, the round pen and the rock.  Each of these chapters provide an exciting account of different stories.

The end of the book has a wonderful study guide which makes this a perfect read for fellowship groups and  mid-week discussions.  I would recommend it for male groups especially, since this book does have that focus.

I would also encourage you to look at the sneak peek provided by the publisher:

Do you live in God's YES?

Do you live in God's YES?  That is the question of the day.

"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him/"
-John 3:17

I was fortunate enough to get a review copy from the publisher and read this book before it's available to the public!

"The Gospel of Yes" by Mike Glenn is a book about your life and how you interact with God.  The book's objective is to enable you to find your true value, identity and unique purpose of life.  It reminds you to think of the positive things in life.

The author Mike Glenn is truly a talented writer.  This book is divided into 15 chapters of short readings, on your pathway to discovering your YES relationship with God.  In a positive manner, it is important to first understand the problems of living with "No."  Then, we see "Yes" = positive described in many ways.  In a convenient format, the book also includes a discussion section perfect for fellowship and small groups.  It also relates it's teachings to valuable quotes in the Bible to support the key points.

I would say that this is more of an advanced read.  Its short chapters provide for deep discussion.  It was for a deep dive discovery of the unique purpose of life with respect to God.  Not for the faint at heart.

Here is a video to the interview with the author:
