Xulon Title Tackles Controversial Issue of Immorality in Society

Changing the Method of Change

Longwood, FL (Vocus) April 23, 2010

Abortion. Homosexuality. Religious freedom. These are just a few of the controversial issues that are being discussed in our society today. With a nation whose moral climate is deteriorating, people are wondering what should be done in light of the cultural decay taking place. What few realize, however, is that when it comes to the fight against immorality in society, ultimate change comes not through government, humanly devised strategies, or clearly developed plans—but by salvation through Jesus Christ. In Xulon Press author Steve Gill’s Changing the Method of Change: How the Fight for Morality Fails to Transform the Sinful Heart (.99, paperback, 978-1-60791-431-0), readers will explore what the Bible says regarding the church’s role, strategy, and activity in the midst of an increasingly ungodly culture.

“I hope readers will come to understand that dealing with immorality only on a surface level does no spiritual good and that we need to trust God by being confident that sticking with the Great Commission should be the church’s number one mandate,” the author says. “If we win society over to a moralistic ideal and yet people die without a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, then the church really has been of no help at all.”

Gill, a first-time author, received his ministry education at Emmanuel House Seminary in Manhattan, Kansas. It is these teachings that inspired him to write this book; the themes are universal and will resonate with readers of all stripes. “Many people both inside and outside the church are aware of the certain individuals and Christian organizations who take steps to bring morality to society and to change the nation to be more Christian,” he explains. “Because of the widespread familiarity of these debates and the sides that are involved, I believe that people will more readily identify with what is presented in this book.”

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 7,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Changing the Method of Change through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. Changing the Method of Change is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.


Author Tackles Black Gender Gap in New Book and Seminar Series

(PRWEB) October 21, 2003

For Immediate Release:


Tenacious Entertainment


Author Tackles Black Gender Gap in New Book and Seminar Series

The article in Newsweek Magazine, “The Black Gender Gap,” penned by Ellis Cose in March of 2003 unleashed a firestorm of discussion, particularly among single Black men and women. On November 22, 2003, Tenacious Entertainment will present a seminar called Bridging The Black Gender Gap, based on a series of books by the same name.

    Bridging The Black Gender Gap, Volume I is a new mini-book based on years of research and more than twenty discussions with men and women regarding the growing number of unmarried Black women conducted by author Darryl James (Detective’s Affair & The Los Angeles Riots: Three Decades of Revolution). James, through Tenacious Entertainment, is also organizing a series of seminars to initiate dialogue between men and women.

“The charge for each of us—men and women—is to begin to discuss the problems we both face, without expressing the fear and hatred that have been welling up inside of us,” said James. “I want to facilitate healthy discussions with people who can provide qualified information and advice.”

To facilitate pragmatic processing of dating issues, James has assembled psychiatrists/psychologists and a variety of panelists, including Keidi Obi Awadu, activist and radio host; Ryeal Sims, filmmaker and motivational speaker; Pastor Ben Stephens, Pastor of the Young Adult & Youth Ministry at West Angeles Church of God In Christ; Dr. E. Lance McCarthy, Ph.D, a national economist; Steve & Dawn Adams, of the Marriage Ministry at 1st Church of God; Group discussion facilitator Askia Muwwakil; Fleace Weaver (blackweekly.com), and Angel L. Gaines a relationship counselor who also appears in the book, Bridging The Black Gender Gap, Volume I.

“People usually have conflict because of the way that they process pain,” said Gaines. “Once the root cause of the pain is discovered, individuals are able to understand another person’s pain and work toward conflict resolution with them.”

Bridging The Black Gender Gap, the seminar takes place on November 22, 2003, from 9am until 5pm at the Hilton Hotel at Los Angeles Airport, 5711 W. Century Blvd. The cost is in advance and day of Seminar.

Published by Tenacious Books, Bridging The Black Gender Gap, Volume I is the first installment of a series and a much-needed contribution to the communication needed between men and women. For more information, call (310) 491-3363, or go to www.theblackgendergap.com.
