From the Garden into Eternity" tells of mankind's fall from God's grace beginning in the Garden of Eden, all the way through to one's individual choice: Will eternity be spent in Heaven with God or Hell with Satan?

As a result of sin, mankind suffered a loss of close fellowship with God—but do not fret! The relationship can be restored in this life right into the next! God does not, however, force anyone into a relationship with Him. We are free to choose Him or the alternative: Satan.

This book, fully-supported by Bible verses, helps you determine where you are in this journey called "life". Rest assured that God loves you and longs to give you eternal life in Heaven with Him, but you must first repent and place your faith in Jesus Christ. If you have never taken that step, please don't wait any longer. The alternative eternity—which will be by default—will be dreadful. Call on Jesus today! Start the relationship that guarantees your eternity in Heaven with God!

James: How Then Should We Live? A Bible Study Series From the Book of James by Matthew A. Knight offers a short Bible study sharing wisdom and insight that offer readers Biblical principles the Church and individuals are to live by. 

James, nor the author, compromises and the author has written this series to point Christians to what Scripture says and speaks of in conducting church and thus, walking out our Christianity by our deeds. These principles are key to living a “true” Christian walk and inviting the Holy Spirit into congregations and one’s life.

With such chapters as: Favoritism, Taming the Tongue, Covetousness: the Cause and Cure, and A Warning to Rich Oppressors, introducing readers by the famous quote, “Faith without Works is dead.” So one might ask, What does that mean? How do I show faith and do good works?

Wounded Warriors - Hope and Healing

A CBM Christian Book Review ~ When Good Samaritans Get Mugged: Hope and Healing for Wounded Warriors, by David R. Stokes invites readers on a delightful road of forgiveness to thriving in every way. Connecting the dots, the author leads readers through the art of storytelling, as Jesus did, to the discovery of grace (through Christ) and relates what that means for us. 10.0 stars

He offers help through the application of forgiveness, mercy, love, patience, the Bible and God’s ways that challenges readers to make an inner-self survey. Dealing with such subjects as: anger, bitterness and unforgiveness, he shows readers the only way to having true and lasting inner peace – through reliance on God and complete forgiveness. 

Knowing that we all get hurt, even when trying to do “good” things – and even by those who are within the church walls, he begins with the story of the Good Samaritan as a backdrop to the question: What do you do when you receive hurt and/or pain either physically, emotionally, or spiritually from other believers (and others in the world)? Offering true scriptural and Biblical answers, this book offers hope for the journey into forgiveness, the grace of God and a renewing of the mind that leads to maturity in Christ.

When Good Samaritans Get Mugged
A Must Read!

Using such Biblical examples as “Saul of Tarsus” who was later converted to the Apostle Paul and also Joseph’s story, the author also relates a number of compelling true-life stories that add intrigue and captivate one’s intellect and heart. Teaching and instructing along the way, the author advocates Scripture memorization as way to build the inner man and faith – as one learns to “take every thought captive”- and tend to your thoughts as you would a garden – plucking out the weeds. Filled with insightful wisdom, encouragement, inspiration, and a keen understanding for the ways of God, the author presents sound and practical advice on how to handle the hard punches in life.

Truthfully, there is not a person on this Earth who can say, “I’ve had a pain free life.” With that in mind, inevitably this book will touch you in some profound way. I have to say this is the only book, (that I read in only two sessions and wanted to read straight through). I could literally not put the book down! Filled with so much candor, the author gets to his point in a number of memorable ways through his great story telling ability that not only intertwine Scripture, history, Biblical figures, but also memorable sporting events, to include everyday citizens, that will impact your life.

Everyone has a story. His book relates this fact clearly and states that if we think about our life, you will understand we all need forgiveness on many levels in life, as he answers some hard questions about how to get over the past and move forward. As one who has lived through the up-and-downs of life as a pastor, father and seen many ministers that have quit along the way for various reasons, he knows what he is talking about.

This book is a highly recommended read for the Church, the Body of Christ, for pastors to hand out or for anyone looking to move forward and get better – not bitter.  Additionally, also a great way to point others in the direction of what the Lord expects of His children, which is, “Yes, you are your brother’s keeper.”

The Forum Book Review

The Book Review presents - The Forum: A Deadly Game of Wheat and Tares by Ronald Winters offers a riveting fictional account of “real world end time events, current day attitudes and directions of the spirit of the times in which we live.”

Barak Zonman, starts off this fast-paced thriller, blending elements of espionage with a religious and political polarization that affect the masses of population around the World. In the book, there is a conspiracy to bring all faiths into one large interfaith religion and Barak Zonman and his popular TV show – The Forum must be eliminated.

This begins with Zonman, the show’s founder. The Forum “is a faith oriented call-in TV show designed to let viewers question leading members of the clergy.” Controversial in nature, this show sparks debate – and hinders the worldwide current of leading all into one faith and world peace. This novel of the wheat and tares is an amazing book written to those that would seek truth in God and the true Christian faith.

Running for his life, Barak finds sanctuary in a church and finds himself radically changed by a baptism by water, followed by a baptism of the Spirit, as evidenced by the speaking in tongues. Highlighting this issue, the author speaks of the controversy between believers on being “born again” (either by just statement and belief and/or by receiving the infilling of the Spirit, as evidenced by speaking in tongues). This radical way of being born again and receiving the Spirit is what Apostle Paul spoke of, thus, the book sheds light on God’s way versus man’s way. Man’s way and God’s way are running a collision course to the End Times in this book that reveal an exciting plot of scenarios begun by two Prologues that concurrently blend modern-day questions and events that has been spoken of in Bible Prophecy. The author also notes that we are in the time of the Olivet Discourse that Jesus speaks of on the Mount of Olives, mentioning the time of Jesus return as near since the birth of Israel in May 1948.

In the back of the book the author offers his personal testimony, delivered instantly from prescription drug dependency when “he looked in the mirror” and repented of his ways. Holding fast to true repentance, the author advocates true Holy Ghost filled deliverances and that the modern-day believer should have them as a norm, instead of replaced by the Forum so to speak – the modern day church who compromises and duplicates the actual workings of the Holy Spirit by replacing them with good theology, programs and modern day mood alteration technology. He also offers observations on some relevant issues, two being backsliding and tithing.

A Deadly Game of Wheat and Tares

10.0 out of 10.0 stars

This book comes highly recommended for those that look to fill the void inside, but are not sure what they are looking for. And for those that enjoy thrillers with the elements of religious and political overtones. Recommended either for a personal read or as a tool to reach the unbeliever, the book highlights the End Times and gives a faith-filled read that speaks of the true evidence found in an all-powerful God. Based on Barak’s faith-filled experience, the book offers challenging questions to believers and to non-believers (the wheat and the tares) as to the times that we are living in and gives a warning to the group of believers that call themselves, the Church.

A CBM Christian Book Review - He Sent His Son

A CBM Christian Book Review - He Sent His Son: Eyewitness Accounts by Jim & Carol Zeigler takes readers through a delightful experience of eyewitness accounts taken from the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth in Luke and Matthew. 

Beginning with the announcement of the Angel Gabriel to Mary, readers will gain keen insight into the sharing of the events leading up to and following the birth of Christ. Concisely written, the author highlights the true meaning of Christmas, the salvation of Jesus and what that means to those who believe and those who would not believe. 

Jesus’ birth and His coming as the Messiah was foretold in the Bible as the author gives insight into the Jewish traditions, the names and meanings of some of the Hebrew names of God while speaking of the hope in the One who was born to save all who would believe upon His Name.

Revealing the political and religious climate in Jesus’ time, and mentioning historical aspects of the Bible, Jesus’ prophesied coming in Isaiah, coupled with the events leading up to Jesus’ birth make for a faith-filled journey. 

As Christmas is just around the corner, the author speaks of Christmas as one of his favorite holidays. Yet, traditionally speaking, he describes Christmas as a time of benevolence, gift-giving and time with family. This “worldly” way and commercializing of Christmas has crowded out the holiness and honor that this season holds for each person who believes (and for those who do not yet believe). 

He speaks of the Christmas holiday that has become nothing more than a greedy intent to bring money surrounded by false traditions and stories such as Santa Claus, the Elves and Reindeer. (One cannot dispel the fact that he speaks truth about the Christmas season and what the commercialism, not to mention spending money that we don’t have). Thus, the purpose of the book is to remind and teach others of the sanctity of Christmas and point those to the Messiah that was born to die for His People’s sins. 

The author states (speaking about Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds, the Wise Men, the Inn Keeper, Herod, Isaiah, Simeon and Anna, “We can learn from them the way we are to live our lives, believing God will always accomplish His will. We need to live expecting His appearance anytime.” Powerfully written, this book will speak to your heart and mind, bringing such a deep appreciation for the salvation of Jesus.

With such chapters as: Gabriel-The Angel Sent from God to Announce the Coming of Messiah, Mary-The Young Mother of Jesus, Joseph-The Stepfather Who Raised Jesus, The Innkeeper-Unknown by Name and Oft Maligned, The Shepherds-Those Who Were Looking for His Coming, Isaiah-The Prophet Who Told Israel How to Recognize the Good King, The Wise Men-Who Followed the Star to Find the King, Herod-The Evil False King of Judah, Simeon-Who Waited for the Consolation of Israel, and Anna-The Prophetess Who Served in the Temple.

This is a wonderful book to read during this coming Christmas season, to give to family and friends, and to teach children the deep blessing of Christmas or just to reinvigorate faith. Hats off to these writers who took the time to remind us all just how important and wonderful this season is! This book also comes highly recommended to use an evangelical outreach to those that would need the faith to believe. He Sent His Son is an excellent faith-filled journey through the birth of Christ that will not only rekindle faith, but also birth faith in others to believe in the salvation of Jesus as the Savior and Messiah of the World!
