Are We There Yet?

“ARE WE THERE ------- YET?”

What if God Answered Your Questions about the End of the World….with a Sign…?

By Michael Allen & Robert Lamphier

The end of the world is something we have all heard about, either in movies, books or on TV. One of the versions we have heard come from the Bible in Matthew, told by Jesus, and in The Revelation of Jesus Christ written by the disciple John. The authors take the facts of these Biblical accounts and write a fictionalized story of the end of the world. Some of the timing of things may be different from what Christians have been taught, the rapture for one, but the things written about will happen. The facts are the truth and are vivid and graphic at times. The authors do a good job of describing what will take place and should make the reader think about the truth of the end of the world.

A quote from the beginning of the book;

“Jesus has given us WARNINGS of the great Horrors at THE END OF THE WORLD—Mankind would do well to HEAR THEM----AND HEED THEM___”.

Great Book About Life

LIFE IS __________.

God's Illogical Love Will Change Your Existence

By Judah Smith

What would be your answer to this question, Life is _______? This book by Judah Smith will direct you in the right direction and help with an answer. He divides the book into four sections and each section into four chapters detailing each section.

The sections are:
Life is to be loved and to love.
Life is to trust God in every moment.
Life is to be at peace with God and yourself.
Life is to copy God.

Judah uses the scripture stories and parables of Jesus, to help us understand to answer the question, Life is, and to live a better life. Sometimes his writing is humorous and always easy to understand, written as a friend, welcoming believers and non-believers a way to a better life. His goal is not to tell you how to live, but to point you to the source and the focus of life itself: Jesus. This book should open a new journey with God and help you live a better life with God.

Judah share things from his life, some are funny and some are sad. They are enjoyable to read and offer an insight into the author and his background as a pastor.

Great fiction

SHADOW OF THE MOUNTAIN EXODUS

By Cliff Graham

Cliff Graham fictionalized the early years of Caleb in Egypt. Cliff admits in the beginning of the book that he has taken a considerable amount of license with the life of Caleb. He shares a life that Caleb may have lived and how he, Caleb, became a warrior and a part of the Exodus. Cliff also shows a new view of the Exodus, which may have been how the Egyptians might have seen it.

The book starts with Caleb, as an older man in his eighty and he is leading a large army in a battle. There is some downtime due to rainy weather and a relative asks Caleb to tell about his earlier life. Cliff writes a very believable story about the early years and the story will hold your interest. Cliff holds on to the Biblical story of the Exodus, making a great story combining fiction and non-fiction.

The story is very action oriented and should satisfy the action lover and the excitement seeker. The book is a part of a series that the author is writing and should peak your interest to read his other works.

The truth

COMBATING THE LIES OF SATAN

Your Guide to Being Uncompromising in a Compromising World

By Shirley White

What lies does Satan tell us? This book by Shirley White lays them out in front of you, lies such as, Jesus is not God, God and Satan do not exist, Evolution is a fact; creation is a myth. These are just a few of the lies Satan spreads. Shirley points out that Satan tells these lie to turn people away from God and His way of salvation (the only way of salvation). The evidence she offers is scriptural and is the truth, which needs to be revealed. Shirley covers twelve lies that we have heard most of our lives and some even taught us in school, this does not make them the truth. She closes with a chapter that may make everyone to want to pursue the truth.

Shirley starts each chapter with a short conversation that could take place between God and Satan. She gives the lie that Satan tells and a strong explanation of why it is a lie and why Satan tells the lie. She does not hold back what she believes and likely will step on toes.

I found her writing very easy to understand and very much to the subject of Satan’s lies and in my belief to be true and that as a Christian agree that the truth needs told. I would recommend using this book for Bible study and discussion groups. Remember, “The truth needs to be told.”
