The world’s economic downtrend continues to distress lives and create global uncertainty.  Markets are soft, many lose their jobs, factories close down, and people are losing hope.

In the middle of this economic gloom, self-published book author Troy D. Ehlke enlightens Christians that the picture is not something dreadful but an opportunity to grow deeper in faith.

“This level of faith development requires a new understanding of suffering, one where this world is seen as a testing ground, not the end… While we experience distress in this lifetime, it is not without reward,” Ehlke said.

His book ‘Crossroads of Agony’ emphasizes Jesus Christ’s call to suffering as demonstrated on Calvary.

“Suffering yields life – life that is everlasting,” the book author stressed.

He reveals that in America, highlighting suffering and personal sacrifice does not win churchgoers who prefer Christ portrayed as kind and always providing believers with prosperity.

“It makes Christianity one-dimensional and shallow. When hardship becomes an unwelcome visitor in our lives, the gospel of rewards doesn’t hold up or provide the slightest degree of comfort.” Ehlke explained.

“True discipleship must contend with all sides of the faith, not just the ones that make us smile or feel warm and fuzzy inside.”

Ehlke underscores that contemporary Christians are adrift without studying the foundations of the church as a dependable point of reference.  An investigation of the early church through study of scripture, historical events and emerging literature puts more substance to his published book.

The author hopes that readers will use the questions at the end of each chapter for discussion in small groups particularly during this time when everything looks dim and the future, bleak.

Troy Ehlke is associate pastor of Christ Lutheran Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.  He earned his master’s degrees in the fields of theology and divinity at Harvard Divinity School, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary (Berkeley, California), and Princeton Theological Seminary.

‘Crossroads of Agony’ is published by Xlibris.

Springborn, a new book by Petersburg, Tennessee author Ruth D. Dewey, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Springborn, a book about a tiny calico kitten, introduces a poetic form from the Old English, the “kenning.” The kenning is a phrase consisting of two words, adjective-noun, to describe an object, in this case the cyclical nature of a kitten’s life as she progresses from kittenhood to cathood.

This beloved book will be cherished by readers everywhere as it shows them a day in the life of a calico kitten.

Ruth D. Dewey wrote and illustrated Springborn as a graphic arts class project. Her subject was a mother and father cat raising kittens. The story sprung from Ruth’s realization that animals form family bonds in much the same manner as humans.

A native of Northeastern Ohio, Ms. Dewey is a substitute teacher in the Lincoln County Schools in her home of Petersburg, Tennessee. Married to James Robert Dewey Jr., she has three sons: Timothy Nathan Hobbs, James Robert Dewey III, and David Richard Dewey. Ruth received her bachelor of arts in English from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California, and studied in the graduate program in the West Redding, Connecticut’s Institute of Children’s Literature. A current member of both the Church of Christ and the Lincoln County Piecemakers Quilt Guild, she counts among her special interests quilting, gardening, and raising animals.

Springborn is a 42-page paperback with a retail price of .00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0303-7. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Pastor and Author Kwame Frimpong Offers Sound Counsel to the Hurt and Offended

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) April 13, 2006

Pastor Kwame Frimpong is on an important mission, one that has led him from his homeland of Ghana in West Africa, to the shores of his American homeland. “I gave my heart and life to Christ in Ghana, and God trained me up to be a pastor,” explained Frimpong. “But he called me to the nations, and specifically to the U.S., to speak a message of hope and healing to those bound by wounds from their past.”

The mission of healing and forgiveness resonates deeply with this humble man of God because he has witnessed the devastation that wounds from the past have wrought in the lives of so many. “As a pastor I have counseled many believers who have been nearly destroyed by the actions and words of others,” he said, “from parents, spouses, friends, and siblings. But I know what the Word of God says, and there is healing right for everyone. I have seen so many released from years of bondage once they get a revelation of Christ’s transforming power.”

Frimpong’s passion to see lives changed led him to pen his latest book, “It’s Not Your Fault,” which charts the biblical path that is the only way to true and lasting healing from past hurts. Frimpong can personally relate to such pain. “The rejection I received from my own parents and family actually drove me from my home,” he recalled, “causing years of emptiness and torment, even after I had become Christian.”

That very personal crisis sent Frimpong to God’s Word and prayer for answers. “God showed me that through Christ there is a way of victory,” he said. “I decided to write this book for all those who are going through the same struggles I faced.”

Pastor Kwame explained that often the key to freedom is dealing with unresolved issues from one’s past that have not been adequately addressed. Inner wounds that go as far back as early childhood may be the obstacles that keep individuals from living in victory. “To continue with such weight is simply unnecessary,” declared Pastor Kwame with passion. “My deep desire for readers of the simple, but profound message in this book is to be healed from their pasts and move on in their life serving and worshipping God in fullness of joy.”

“It’s Not Your Fault” is actually the sequel to an earlier book, “Overcoming Offenses,” which Frimpong wrote to teach individuals the scriptural truth about releasing hurts they have received from others. “Let’s face it, the enemy of our souls knows just the right buttons to push to try to get us out of fellowship with each other – and to destroy the peace that is our inheritance as Christians,” he said. “Each of us is susceptible to both real and perceived offenses from others, including family members, fellow believers, and pastors and church leaders. How many relationships have been needlessly destroyed or damaged because Christian have not responded to these attacks with the truth of God’s Word? Both of these books are devoted to addressing this crucial issue in the lives of believers and the church.”

As founder of Christ to the Nations Ministries and pastor of All Nations Fellowship Church in Raleigh North Carolina, Frimpong maintains a full schedule of teaching, counseling, traveling, and speaking. “My passion has always been to see believers discover and fulfill their individual callings,” he explained. “But that can only fully come as we recognize the work of the enemy and learn to use the weapons of spiritual warfare against him. My passion is to teach believers to recognize and defeat the enemy in their personal lives and in their churches.”

New Book: African Prophetesses May be Original Author of Bible Prophecies

Augusta, GA (PRWEB) July 12, 2007

Author, Vivian Hunter-Hindrew claims in her well researched, ground breaking new book, ” The Sibyls: The First Prophetess’ of Mami (Wata)”, that for 6,000 years, Africa was ruled by a powerful order of matriarchs known throughout the ancient world as “Sibyls.” Hindrew contends that the Sibyls produced the world’s first prophetic oracles, prophetess’ and prophets.

Believed to be the actual priestesses of Isis,’ Hunter-Hindrew asserts that the Sibyls were known as “Pythoness,” because their oracle source was a mighty ancestral python that “spoke” prophecy to them during trance possession. “It was the Sibyls who built and worked the powerful oracles in the African Egyptian colonies of ancient Greece, Rome, Turkey, Israel, Syria and Babylon.”

The most famous of these temples was the (later renamed) “Temple of Amon” in ancient Libya, and the “Temple of Delphi” (meaning “dolphin”) at Dodona and Delos, in the Grecian islands. However, their holy temples were more numerous than the Christians churches of today. According to Hunter-Hindrew, “many of the first Christian churches were created by either assimilating, or were built atop the temple ruins of the Sibyls.” She further contend that in ancient Rome, the Sibyls were the first to establish the “holy seat” of the Vatican. They were celebrated and respected as advisors to the world’s heads of state. “The Romans even credit a famous Sybil named “Cimeria” with prophesying the birth of Julius Caesar and his nephew Augustus.”

The famous Roman augur/diviner Navius, speaks about Cimeria in his book on the Punic Wars. Known as great healers. Hunter-Hindrew claims that “centuries before Christ, the Sibyls cured epileptics, the blind, lepers and ‘casted out demons,’and even called-up the dead.” It was a Sibyl, who called-up the spirit of the Apostle Samuel to speak to him from the dead.

Hunter-Hindrew claims that during the inquisitions, the Sibyls were eventually persecuted by the now established Roman Church, and condemned as “witches.” However, their “pagan” prophecies were later collected by the Roman Emperor, Tarquin and compiled into numerous books. The Sibyls preserved their history in poetic and prophetic prose that would later be used as the basis for Greek and Roman tragedies. Hunter-Hindrew believes that it was these books that were eventually seized by the emerging Roman papal to create a western theological foundation in order to compete with the Kemetically learned levitical Jews. Hunter-Hindrew concludes that the Sibyl prophecies would later lay the ecclesiastical foundation for the collection of apocryphal books modified as the “Christian” Bible. She believes also that “the New Testament is actually a historical chronicle of the final destruction of these ancient Sibyl temples, and the forced imposition of a “new theology” revised by church officials from the more ancient books of the Sibyls and others.”

About author:

Vivian Hunter-Hindrew, M.Ed., (aka: Mama Zogbé) is a world traveled priestess of the Mami Wata traditions that originate in West Africa. She is the first initiated priestess of this tradition in America. She is the author of a comprehensive body of work entitled “Mami Wata: Africa’s Ancient God/dess Unveiled Vol I & II, and “Vodoun: The History of A Suppressed Tradition in America.” She works and maintains full-time her ancestral shrines dedicated to this African deity.

Author Paints Picture of Bride and Groom as Church and Christ

Longwood, FL (PRWEB) December 8, 2007

You’ve sung the song, played pretend and dreamed about it since you were five. The past several weeks have been filled with nothing but endless details and decisions. You’re totally frazzled, and the entire wedding party is on your last nerve. Sound like a nightmare? It doesn’t have to be. In Debi Thompson’s Here Comes the Bride … But Is She Ready? A Devotional for the Christian Bride (.99, paperback, 978-1-60477-349-1) is full of daily spiritual preparations that will make you a bride who greats the day with peace and joy, understands the significance of all you’re doing and has drawn closer to Jesus Christ.

Says Thompson, “With all the emphasis on having a ‘perfect day,’ the Lord is so often left out of the picture. As the bride is led through a study of the many spiritual aspects of her wedding, it’s my desire she will draw closer to the Lord, her heavenly bridegroom, and face her wedding day with joy and confidence having a clear picture of the commitment she is making to her earthly groom.”

A Christian who has been married for 37-plus years, Thompson found that by bringing God into the details of her life, she began to experience deep joy and a real sense of His presence. That is the fundamental principle lacking in so many of today’s marriages. With America’s divorce rate skyrocketing, there is not a more pressing time for the Christian bride and groom to be taught God’s perspective on marriage. “As we begin to see the bride and groom as a picture of the church and Christ, the wedding takes on new meaning,” the author says.

Debi Thompson lives with her husband of 37 years near Nashville, Tennessee.

Xulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 4,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Here Comes the Bride … But Is She Ready? through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.

Outskirts Press Announces Mab’s Cross Trilogy, the Latest Highly-Anticipated Fiction/Historical Book from Woolwich, ME, Author Jon Norris

Denver, CO and Woolwich, ME (PRWEB) June 28, 2007

Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Mab’s Cross Trilogy: Volume I: The Lost Rebellion by Jon Norris, which is the author’s most recent book to date. The 6 x 9 paperback in the Fiction/Historical category is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble for a suggested retail price of .95. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/mabscross was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication.

About the Book (Excerpts & Info) :

A Sequel to Braveheart.

A prequel to The Da Vinci Code.

A quest for truth in an age of darkness.

The Mab’s Cross Trilogy is an epic love story set in the 14th Century. Society was in upheaval. Magna Carta had awakened the promise of human rights, the Roman Church was crumbling from within, famine ravaged the land, the French king hijacked the Holy See to Avignon and annihilated the Knights Templar, a band of starving Scots humiliated the English at Bannockburn, and Edward II died in a Welsh dungeon. In the lawless marchlands of Lancashire, Sir William Bradshaw and his Lady Mab refused to surrender their dreams to the chaos, and their love for each other created a legend that will not die. The ruins of the cross that bears Mab’s name can still be seen on the Standishgate in Wigan, Lancashire. After 700 years, it remains as a humble tribute to a noble dream. The story of that cross reveals a world torn by tyranny and rebellion, faith and betrayal, hot-blooded chivalry and cold-blooded murder; and yet it also celebrates the rebirth of Reason after a thousand years of darkness.

Deftly constructed at 336 pages, Mab’s Cross Trilogy: Volume I: The Lost Rebellion is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction/Historical category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Mab’s Cross Trilogy meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of .95.

Additionally, Mab’s Cross Trilogy can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks

ISBN: 9781598009071 Format: 6 x 9 Paperback SRP: .95

Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled by Best-Selling Author Steven S. Sadleir Just Released on Amazon April 15th


Christ Enlightened


Laguna Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2010

The latest book by Steven S. Sadleir called Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled will be released on Amazon (CreateSpace) this month. Steven retells the story of Christianity: Hundreds of scholars from around the world have been discovering pieces of a lost puzzle about Jesus Christ and his teachings and it’s creating a whole new and very different story. According to Steven there was a whole corpus of literature that the Aramaic speaking Semitic Christians from Israel, the disciples who actually walked with Jesus (and their children and grandchildren), where shown how to realize God by going within – the Kingdom of Heaven was the enlightenment of the consciousness. These teachings were later rejected by the Greco-Roman Churches as Steven explains, and lost to the world until recently.

Sadleir, who’s best-seller Looking for God, a Seeker’s Guide to Religious and Spiritual Groups of the world, served as a base for his research for world religions and inspiration for keeping up with recent archeological finds and historical developments within Judaism and Christianity. In Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled Steven delves into ancient history, to the very origins of God and the Bible, he explains what’s in the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Merkabah and the Kabbalah. Here Steven reveals what has been revealed through the Nag Hammadi Library and the gospels of Thomas, James, Philip and Mary Magdalene, and how some of the first churches were run by female bishops. Steven also delves into the gospels of the Ebionites, Nazareans, Hebrews and Egyptians and draws heavily from the Aramaic Bible called the Peshitta.

Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled draws from the leading scholars from the best universities from around the world, including: Karen Armstrong, George Lamsa, David Levine, Rabbi Berg, Bart Ehrman, James Robinson, Rocco Errico, Elaine Pagels, Marvin Meyers and many others. The book begins by explaining the convergence of prophesies indicating a universal shift in consciousness occurring even now, and how we have already begun a Second Reformation of Christianity. According to leading historians, Jesus was not a god, was not born of a virgin but was the expected son of Joseph and Mary and anticipated Messiah of the Jews, and, moreover, did not die in remission of original sin but rather as a martyr teaching us how not to sin. According to Steven, who is recognized as a spiritual master in two lineages from India, Jesus was a “Kabbalistic Yogi” teaching the way to enlightenment.

Steven S. Sadleir is the best-selling author Looking for God, a Seeker’s Guide to Religious and Spiritual Paths of the World and co-author (with Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and others) of Wake Up: Live the Life You Love, as well as others. Steven is director of the Self Awareness Institute and Christ Enlightened, with students in over 120 countries, and host of Enlightenment Radio one of the largest spiritual talk radio programs on the Internet and pick up on iTunes.

Author Finds Common Ground between Anglicans and Roman Catholics

Longwood, FL (PRWEB) September 9, 2006

Robert David Redmile is a man on a mission—to assert the catholicity and orthodoxy of traditional Anglican teaching with regard to the ministry and sacraments of the church. His new book, The Apostolic Succession and the Catholic Episcopate in the Christian Episcopal Church of Canada (paperback ISBN 1-60034-516-6 and hardcover ISBN 1-60034-517-4), sets forth the argument that Anglicans share the very same Sacraments and ministerial Orders as the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches while carefully documenting the various lines of apostolic succession within the Christian Episcopal Church of Canada.

“My hope is that those who read this book will come away with a correct and more complete understanding of the doctrine of the undivided church in regard to the sacraments and sacred ministry,” says Redmile, “especially in regard to the reality of the apostolic succession and the need to uphold its integrity and transmit it to future generations.” Redmile devoted hours of intense research to uncovering the records of the various lines of apostolic succession in the Anglican Communion and other Anglican jurisdictions, and many of these are presented here for the first time ever. He believes that, in light of the current struggles within Anglicanism, this book will become one of the means to achieving full reunion between the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox churches while asserting the catholicity of traditional Anglican teaching.

Robert David Redmile is a bishop of the Christian Episcopal Church of Canada, a Canadian Anglican jurisdiction formed in 1991 by the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. He holds degrees in arts and education from the University of British Columbia and studied theology in preparation for ordination at Regent College and other conservative Christian institutions.

Xulon Press is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 2,700 titles published to date. Retailers may order The Apostolic Succession and the Catholic Episcopate in the Christian Episcopal Church of Canada through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
