Rebuilding Civilization on the Bible by Dr. Jay Grimstead – Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card

Rebuilding Civilization on the Bible coverTitle:  Rebuilding Civilization on the Bible: Proclaiming the Truth on 24 Controversial Issues
Author: Jay Grimstead
Genre: Religion/Theology/Instruction

About the book:

False teachings threatening to corrupt the Church forced the leaders to join in councils, where they codified the orthodox teaching of the Bible into creeds received by the Church as faithful distillations of Scriptural truth and as a bulwark against future corruption. Error, heresy, and outright paganism are today common in churches that were once sound. Even many “better” churches have little depth to their teaching and are silent on critical issues of the day, and even in some paganism masquerades as Christianity.

This book is the fruit of the work of hundreds of theologians and Christian leaders working throughout a 37-year period to define and defend the key Biblical points on 24 controversial issues — which would not even be controversial if all believed like Jesus and Paul in the inerrancy of the Bible.

This book states the Bible’s position on 24 controversial issues and explains why each document needed to be written. It offers the global Body of Christ tools for reforming the Church and motivating Christians to live in obedience to Christ and to all commands in the Bible intended for us.

Excerpt:

“We heartily invite all Christians on this planet who desire to live in obedience to the Bible in all areas of life at all times, to form themselves and their local churches into “United Spiritual Armies” at the city and county levels, and to establish a network with other such churches and “spiritual armies” at their state and national levels with the goal of making Christ King of their cities and nation. We invite you to join with us in applying these 24 DOCUMENTS to the life of the Church and in making 2 Cor. 10:5 a reality. By that we mean that together we are called by God to destroy “speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”

About the book:

Indian nationalist leader Mahatma Gandhi has been quoted as saying “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” This is a sad indictment of the Christian community as a whole.  Is it true?  Are believers in Christ the reason people keep their distance from Judeo-Christian beliefs and the God we embrace?  I feel there’s no question that we’re partially to blame.  In this book I touch on a wide variety of topics, but in the end call out Christians to immerse themselves in a time of reassessment as we all strive to be more genuine and consistent in our faith.

God loves you. You are of immeasurable value to Him. So much so He sent His Son to die for you. He knows your heart. He knows your schedule. If you desire to be closer to Him, then it will happen.

Guest post, The Busy Mom’s Daily

I see the brethren struggling in their faith. I wrote this particular book to instruct them and help them make some possible necessary changes.

Interview at The Book Connection

An excellent tool for salvation use.

Review, Vic’s Media Room

The best portion of the book to me was the realization that Christians are not called to judge non-Christians…It was a definitive validation for the author to back up what I believed with Scripture.

Review, My Devotional Thoughts

If you are looking to revitalize your relationship with God and learn how you can more effectively draw others to Him, Man’s Rejection of God: Who’s Responsible? is a book you should take a look at.

Tactics, Trends, & Traits of the Enemy Book Blitz – Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card

ISBN:  9781462736362—Hard Cover
ISBN: 9781462736355—Soft Cover

Pre-order at: http://www.amazon.com/PRE-ORDER-Tactics-Trends-Equipping-Believer/dp/1462736351/

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Tactics, Trends, & Traits of the Enemy by author Jermaine Gadson is a must have resource for believers who want to be well equipped to be victorious against the strategies of the devil. The devil is cunning and deceptive, and he will stop at nothing to keep God’s people from reaching their potential in Christ. In this book, Pastor Gadson discusses how the enemy uses temptation, seduction, fear, isolation, guilt, shame, and other such things in order to steal and destroy a person’s life. Satan works tirelessly through various means and mechanisms to keep sinners from hearing and being receptive of the Word of God, in order to prevent them from being saved. If you have family or friends who are not born-again, this resource will help you to identify schemes that the enemy may be using to keep your loved ones from being saved. This book is intended to equip the Body of Christ to wage a good warfare against the strategies of the enemy. It is not God’s will for His people to be taken advantage of by the enemy because of ignorance. This book exposes who the enemy is, what he has done, what he is doing, and what he will try to do in the future, as an enemy of God’s people. This book is written for the everyday believer to be able to understand and use. However, it is also a helpful tool for Christian leaders to be able to identify specific ways in which the enemy desires to attack them in order to steal their influence, kill their destiny, and destroy their reputation and ministries. In this regard, it is an encouragement to the Body of Christ to guard and protect their spiritual leaders.

Excerpt:

Know Your Enemy

Before engaging in battle of any kind, it is very important to be familiar with the opposition. The more you know about your enemy, the greater you will be equipped to fight against them and be victorious. Knowing your enemy includes being knowledgeable of their strengths, weaknesses, habits, origin, and the like. When you are knowledgeable about your adversary, you become empowered to develop a plan of action or strategy to adequately defend against their opposition, overcome their threats and defensive mechanisms, and ultimately defeat them.

Athletes and those who follow sports are familiar and acquainted with this principle. Coaches and players spend hours upon hours viewing video recordings of not only their own team, but of their upcoming opponents as well. They view recordings to evaluate their own strengths and weaknesses as revealed by previous games, and they do the same to identify strengths and weaknesses of the next team they have to face.

This principle is certainly pertinent in the area of the military as well. No military general, or top ranking official who has authority over military personnel will in their right mind authorize the use of military force without adequate information concerning the enemy to be attacked. Right decisions require right information. This is especially true if you want to come out victorious and on top.

Now that we can see the importance of this principle from a natural standpoint, it makes sense that this would also apply spiritually in relation to how we are to do battle with our spiritual enemy. As you read this book, I hope that you will be able to see the importance of this material in helping you towards this very end. The reason this book is so important is because the person reading it is like a ballplayer looking at tape of his or her opponent or a military general gathering intelligence on a terrorist organization.

When you know where your enemy came from, what your enemy has done in the past, and what your enemy is presently capable of, you are more readily prepared to wage a good warfare and defeat him in any present or future encounters you may have.

Thy Will Be Done by Ronald W. Kirk Virtual Book Tour Highlights

TWBD larger cover

The world cries out for an imaginative but realistic Biblical guide to the life foreshadowed in Christ’s model prayer. No foolish utopia, here is a powerful, comprehensive portrait of a sinful world redeemed and transformed by Christ—including the tools needed to hasten the day.

The author weaves a tapestry of possibility–Christ’s people growing as salt and light, putting flesh on the Bible’s vision of blessing in every aspect of human life and endeavor, bringing joy to all peoples and glory to the One who came to save the world.

“Ron Kirk comprehensively applies the Lordship of Christ to all areas of life” (Peter Hammond, The Reformation Society, South Africa).

Purchasing information:

Nordskog Publishing: http://www.nordskogpublishing.com/book-thy-will-be-done.shtml

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Thy-Will-Be-Done-Blessed/dp/0988297655/

In my life’s work identifying the Biblical goals of education and its methods, I, with many friends and mentors contributing, produced what might be called a crafted systematic theology of applied faith—the Word of God applied to everything in this life in anticipation of the next! This work identifies God’s goals for His people. These include character, faith, wisdom and skill. Then we apply our understanding, by faith, to ourselves in all things, all of life’s activities on Christ’s behalf according to His gifts and calling. What are the proper limits of godly expression and influence? There are none. “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31*).

–Guest post at The Story Behind the Book

The author weaves a tapestry of possibility–Christ’s people growing as salt and light, putting flesh on the Bible’s vision of blessing in every aspect of human life and endeavor, bringing joy to all peoples and glory to the One who came to save the world.

–My Devotional Thoughts

Powerful in content and meaning, this guide reveals how a true godly society would function. Both informative and inspirational, Thy Will Be Donereminds us of the responsibility we have as Christians to pursue seeing God’s will being done on earth “as it is in heaven” and embracing the charge of The Great Commission to “go and make disciples of all the nations.”

–Cheryl’s Christian Book Connection

What do you feel is the greatest obstacle to transforming our communities?
 
Ron: We are all products of our heritage and upbringing. Overcoming the predisposition of these things is difficult. God designed men not to be moved by every wind of doctrine. Therefore change comes hard. The cure for this is heeding the message of Christ from the beginning of His earthly ministry—repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. We must actively seek how God wishes us to change, educating ourselves, and then endeavoring to practice by faith what we learn of Him.  God works through one obedient person at a time, until He produces a great cloud of witnesses.
–PUYB Virtual Book Club Book Discussion
Today, with repentant hearts (2 Chronicles 7:14), we may see a revival of conditions where Christians are truly salt and light in the earth. We will truly help to prepare the soil of men’s hearts, rendering them ready for salvation and true discipleship.
–Guest post at Lori’s Reading Corner
His commentary in Thy Will Be Done is fascinating yet very much in the know with what we should be doing in our households with our own families as well as in our daily work life even our church life. Being dedicated to God is a great mission but being dedicated to winning souls for the Kingdom is even better. The author has several thoughts on many, many different things that should be of utmost importance to every Christian.

–A Simple Life, Really?

Jesus Christ graced Ron with salvation late in his college career at the University of California, Berkeley, graduating in 1974. In entering his first church ministry, a lack of a RonKirk-photo-SAM_1429Biblical material on education led him to the Christian History Movement and the works of R.J. Rushdoony. Since 1980, Ron has studied and taught the Biblically and historically identified applied-faith theology and philosophy outlined in this book.

God gave Ron a voracious appetite for learning about everything. Ron studied math and physics in college, and then pursued professional landscape architecture—design is a central component to his calling. He gained a passion for education after finding that a full-orbed Biblical treatment of education was nowhere to be found in contemporary literature.

Ever since about 1977, Ron devoted his life to understand God’s earthly and eternal purposes for mankind, to help others know them, and to derive and spread a thoroughly Biblical system of education aimed toward God’s ends for His people.

Ron’s success in pioneering day and home schools has long proven the effectiveness of systematic Biblical thinking. His work has been published internationally and translated into Spanish. Gloriously married since 1971, Ron and Christina have five children, five more sons- and daughters-in-law, and eleven grandchildren, all walking with Christ. American Heritage Christian Church ordained Ron in 1984.

Two Are Better by Tim and Debbie Bishop Book Tour Highlights

Two Are Better new cover

From an engagement to a cross-country trip in just ten weeks? And with no experience in bicycle touring—or marriage? While Tim left behind a 26-year corporate career and familiar surroundings, Debbie was about to enter a “classroom” she hadn’t seen in her 24 years of teaching. Was it a grand getaway or a big mistake?

AMAZON

OPEN ROAD PRESS

“It’s not always best to move at breakneck speed. The faster we go, the greater chance that we’re simply spinning in circles—and getting nowhere fast! Speed can give the illusion that you’re making progress even while it robs you of the joys of everyday living. It blocks you from making it to that long sought after destination—the one that lies deep within. Slowing the pace allows you to absorb more of what’s around you. It helps you discover a new perspective, intriguing surprises around the next corner, and a deeper appreciation for life itself.”
–Guest post from Lori’s Reading Corner

What was your greatest challenge writing this book?

We faced challenges on a multitude of fronts. Since we included photography and reproduced the entire book in color, the layout as well as the dual-author narrative presented challenges that most trade paperbacks—or ebooks for that matter—do not face. Once we had decided to include two narrators, we needed to reconcile and blend our styles and schedules. In many respects, the writing and production of Two Are Better became an extension of our marital bonding. We moved from one major undertaking to another, from a cross-country bicycle trek to writing and publishing a book. Both adventures made for a unique laboratory for discovering our unique formula for success and our identity as a couple.”
–Examiner interview

“Embrace life like never before. Read Two Are Better, and begin your own quest to more adventuresome living.”
–JoJo’s Corner review

“Come along and share the ride and events that happen along their trip. Some are very unusual, and there are a few chuckles too. Most of the story seems to be written by Tim, but there are reports by Debbie…enjoy two different perspectives of the same event!”
–Maureen’s Musings review

“Have you ever wondered why they call it “midlife crisis”? I did too…at least until I lived through one. If you’ve not arrived there yet, here’s a warning: be prepared for some issues that will either catapult you into an exciting new chapter of your life or wreak havoc with you. Remaining entrenched in unending problems is just like playing tetherball and beating down the small plot of ground around the pole. True to its nature, Two Are Better jumps off the merry-go-round of routine and turns midlife crisis upside down.”
–Guest post from Paperback Writer

” I was reminded of God’s providence, love, and provision, and I marveled at how well-suited these two were. I highly recommend this book!”
–My Devotional Thoughts review

“While not someone who is interested in cycling, that didn’t keep me from thoroughly enjoying Two Are Better. Tim speaks with an air of authority tempered by a deep love for life and Debbie has an adventurous heart. The numerous photographs and this couple’s ability to share so much of themselves make this book a truly special reading experience. You simply can’t help but get caught up in their story. I feel as if I’ve journeyed the country right alongside them and been treated to many sites I might not visit on my own. What a blessing.”
–The Book Connection review

Designed for Relationship by T.J. MacLeslie Virtual Book Tour Highlights

Designed for Relationship cover

Mankind has always struggled with the big questions: Why are we here? What is life all about? The search for answers has led in many directions, not all of them helpful. In this age, we are inundated with information, but this flood of knowledge has not necessarily produced wisdom. We find answers to the really important questions as elusive as ever.

It really is all about relationship! This is the open secret, hidden in plain sight all along.

AMAZON

In Designed for Relationship, author T.J. MacLeslie’s discussion on the Trinity gave me pause. He goes back to Genesis to remind the reader that God exists as a “Them as much as a Him.” In the creation story from Genesis 1:26 it says, “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;’…” I In all the years I have read and reread the Creation story, I missed God’s reference to the Godhead here. And now I wonder how much else I might have missed.

Cheryl’s Christian Book Connection first chapter review

What is one thing you hope readers will take away from this book?

I hope that they will take away a renewed hope and desire for a genuine relationship with God, as well as some tools to help them on their search. My own search has been somewhat torturous and winding, and I hope that others can learn from my gleanings and save themselves some pain along their way to finding God and becoming all that He has created them to be.

Blogcritics interview

Designed for Relationship invites you to rediscover the relational nature of God and humanity in two parts: Part One examines ancient truths in the Bible to renew our vision of God and humanity; Part Two applies these truths to our lives, using The Five Circles, a practical tool to understand what it means to be human and providing a framework for growth. All of which has come as a result of my own search for God in the confusion and chaos of the real world.

Broowaha interview

Designed For Relationship is designed to pull readers back from the mundane into the miraculous, to go from mere lip service to God to whole-hearted devotion.

Thy Kingdom Come by Lakesha Monique Ruise Book Blast and $25 VISA Gift Card Giveaway

After petitioning the Father for answers to basic theological questions about the universal church, she took an eight-year journey with the Holy Spirit to provide clarity for herself about His vision.

Thy Kingdom Come provides readers with that clarity.

For anyone wondering what has happened to the Church, for anyone whose faith in God has been diminished, for anyone whose life has been destroyed by the yolks of bondage, Ruise offers new answers. She encourages her readers to follow along in the Bible itself to see how each of her lessons is validated by the Word of God.

“We perish because we don’t know how to survive,” writes Ruise. Thy Kingdom Come offers not only an apt diagnosis of the problem, but equips readers with the cure, as well. It is an excellent source book for Biblical history and spiritual revelation and it prompts valuable internalizing and soul-searching for veteran Christians as well as for new converts.

New Book for Review: Surviving Sexual Brokenness: What Grace Can Do by Thom Hunter

Surviving Sexual BrokennessThom Hunter is touring in May with his Christian nonfiction book, Surviving Sexual Brokenness: What Grace Can Do. A man with his wife at the table on the other side of the restaurant is polite but distracted. A woman at work stares out her office window with a blank expression, her mind far away. A father wraps his arm around his daughter in the church pew; his eyes are on the pulpit, but his mind wanders. What about the college student on the soccer field or in the library? The doctor prepping for surgery? The realtor showing the house next door? The mailman on your front porch. Your Sunday school teacher . . . perhaps even your preacher. These people may be dominated by some form of sexual brokenness, from pornography to adultery to unwanted homosexual temptation. They share a secret they hope and pray will never be revealed. The urge to “act out” in their brokenness is destroying them because it conflicts with a life they have already chosen. They don’t know how to live with it; they don’t know how to be rid of it. They may not know what caused it; they only want to “cure” it. “Am I just a misplaced homosexual?” “Did God make me this way?” “Why won’t He change me?” Surrounding them are the ones who sense something is amiss but have no clue what to do or where to find help. They may be confused by the teachings of the church: love the sinner; hate the sin. This seemingly Biblical response can actually send the message to the struggler that he is, in fact, unlovable because his identity seems inseparable from his sin. Surviving Sexual Brokenness examines the roots and the roadblocks and provides understanding, encouragement, hope and help through Biblical truth and Christian compassion for the freedom-seeker and those who travel alongside.
