About This Book:


Angelia Holley knows she’d never win a mother-of-the-year award. But was her example so bad that it drove her daughter, Amber, to repeat the pattern of teenage pregnancy? And why did Amber pick J.D. of all people to father her baby? While Angelia is forming a bond with her stepdaughter Skylar, twin sister Tyler isn’t nearly as fond of the new “family” forming in the Holley household. When Tyler starts to act out, will Angelia be able to keep her mouth shut and let her husband and the girls’ mother work this out? And the baby of the family, Demarcus, suddenly wants to bond with his biological father. Should Angelia swallow her pride, overlook the years of lack of financial/emotional support, and allow Demarcus to form a bond with the man who has never been there for him? Join Angelia and Darren Holley as they continue with the growing pains of a blended family as they mature in their knowledge of the One who can help them through.

Through It All (Blended Blessings Series) Book Review:

Michelle Stimpson and CaSandra McLaughlin both bundles a lot into “Through It All” the second book in the Blended Blessings series. “Through It All” had me attract to read the whole entire narration in one day. That’s how I can truly appreciated this second book is another great story in this series.  Michelle Stimpson’s writing style and allowing God to instruct her to work with CaSandra McLaughlin to create another great story in the Blended Blessings Series. Their writing styles empower me to have a better relationship with Christ in way they doesn’t preach in “Through It All”. Although they does provides verses and encourages a closer walk with the Lord throughout each of the books in the Blended Blessings Series. I discover this book to be an intrustment to my faith. I can also said it to be an emotional read with laughs and tears throughout of the scenes. She did a wonderful job in surprising me with the directions taken within the pages of “Through It All”. I’m so glad that we have a chance to glimpse into the roller coaster drama of this family’s life. There were so many twists and turns that carried you through every emotional journey. It seemed so real that I was actually praying along with the family when it was called for. The scriptures and sermon messages were encouraging and not too deep, but just right to let us know that we can go to a loving God for every situation. Extremely well written drama about faith and steadfast together through the battles. I would love to read a story about the character of Rose and definitely the character of Marcus. I love the character of Angelia is building a relationship that is closer to God. You can have the compassion for  the character of Tyler because she feel the necessity for to be understood and loved. I appreciated the fact how Darren embrace all of the children as his and Angelia. That is what a blended family is all about. I really enjoyed reading “Through It All” about a blended family who have their ups and downs. There are a lot of twists and turns in “Through It All”. To keep a blended family together, it takes prayer, trust, and sacrifice. Darren and Angelia Holley along with the Holley Family been through a lot but God was always by their side.

Through it all, we should learned to put our trust in Jesus. Through it all we should learn to put our trust in God. We have shed many tears and in sorrows. We even have questions for tomorrow. There been many times we didn’t recognized right from wrong. But in every situations, God given us that blessed consolation that our trials and tribulations appears to only make us strong. Michelle Stimpson and CaSandra McLaughlin wants the readers to know through the Characters that speaking negative words doesn’t show your faith. Faith and Fear doesn’t mix. The power of Life and Death are in the tongue. We as Christians need to stand on our faith in spite of when things look bad, just keep on trusting in His word. Faith is about seeing what you don’t see it until you do see it. This is the time we have to walk out by faith. There is no need of asking God to fix something for us if we don’t believe that God will do it. It is definitely impossible to pleased God without faith and as we mature spiritually our faith will increase. We can’t have the faith without having the knowledge about the facts. The facts are In The Word of God. We can’t trust if not willing to gain knowledge about God’s word. In other word, you must get to know the Master. The best part of this story when the character of Pastor Watkins asked his congregation during Amber’s Baby Dedication. “Do You Promise to be faithful in your calling as the body of Christ, to help Amber be faithful to God “? “To help teach and train baby Dylan in the path of the Lord so that he might one day trust Him as Lord and Savior”? Many times when a young lady gets pregnant without being married, the Church community wants to banned them from coming to Church. They are busy judging and making them feel so bad. We as the Church need to embrace them and also guide them to Christ. It takes a village to raised a child. We need to help those young single mothers in helping them to raised their child and also empower them to teach their children about Christ. The Church community is about faith, love and family. I do recommend you to read the first book “A New Beginning” so you have a great understanding about the Characters and the story then continue to read “Through It All”, you will not be disappointed at all. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the Blended Series.

Expand your faith and increase your joy by joining us on this Lenten journey.

Faces Around The Cross Book Review:

I’m always looking for books such as devotional and Inspirational Motivational books to reads in my spare time to feed my mind. Ray Pritchard allow the Holy Spirit to guide the pen to create this short Lenten devotional “Faces Around The Cross”. Ray writes as if you are listening to a Sermon in Church. His writing also reminds me of having a conversation with someone. This Lenten Devotional is really simple to grasp but he provides a bunch of real substantial heart challenging authenticity with each chapter. This has upstanding theology that intent to lead people to Jesus but in a way that is real for the world we live in. “Faces Around The Cross” is a great gift for individuals that you know will appreciate in reading a great devotional. This is also a great discussion in Bible Study or Christian Book Clubs. I found Dr. Ray Pritchard as an inspirational writer and Man of God spreading the Word of God. Since this is the seasons of Holy Week including Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter or Resurrection Sunday, “Faces Around The Cross” is the perfect time to read this lent devotional for a better understanding about the cross. This Lenten devotional is very encouraging and uplifting. After all Jesus Paid it All. Jesus sacrificed His life by paid the debt that He didn’t even owed. He paid the debt for us because He knew we couldn’t afford to paid. “Faces Around The Cross” makes the Gospel come to existence in a way that average individuals like myself will comprehensively understands. I constantly look forward to read something that based on the Advent or the Lenten seasons of our faith. “Faces Around The Cross” is now my favorites devotional to read. I will definitely read this every lent seasons so I get a new understandings. I have really loved reading about the people that surrounded this monumental event that saved a wretch like me. That was His Amazing Grace. Jesus Paid It All! At the end of each devotional there is a Christian songs that you can click on the link and listen to those songs. When I listen to CeCe Winans’ song “Alabaster Box” that I couldn’t hold my tears when I read about Mary. Ray Pritchard’s book “Faces Around The Cross”, his teachings, his humbleness, and the love that he have for individuals are absolutely a blessings. Reading the story from the individuals that surrounded this monumental event is a great lenten resource that will bless the readers. This Great Lenten Resource is a great reflections as we remember and adoration for the King. The reasons for that because all Jesus Christ did to save us by His death and resurrection.

I found “Faces Around The Cross” to be an outstanding comprehension into the true definition of Lent. As I already stated about the Music featured in this devotional provides a consequential independent worship experience. This is a tremendous way to prepare for Resurrection Sunday by reading and meditate on the actual stories of life of our Savior, Jesus Christ the Precious King. Ray Pritchard did an awesome tasks of making these stories so essential. In my personal opinion, you as the readers will find “Faces Around The Cross” a great simple reading for the Lenten season. Thought provoking and will makes you reflect how God used everyone differently for His purpose. This Lenten Devotional is very empower to read and hear about different people who were there at the time of Jesus’ ministry and momentous trial and crucifixion. Ray Pritchard has a prolific and exclusive way of examine behind the scenes. As a result, we can truly experience emotions, motives, and perspectives that we repeatedly miss in our own meditations of these scriptures. This Lenten Devotional will keeps us in harmony with the events leading to the Cross. I am so glad that Ray Pritchard took the time to share his diligent work which that the readers including me can only benefit by. Even though this was a short read yet it was an insightful new glimpse at the different individuals around Christ as he nears the Cross with personal applications and links to christian songs. This is a totally devotion to start your day and put the focus on the seasons of Lent. I believe that teenagers will get knowledge from reading “Faces Around The Cross.” This remind me a trip in a time machine back to Biblical times. This book will be appreciated by seasons Christians and as well for New Birth Christians. Just like me, this devotional will empower you to be prepare for Holy Week and focus on the sacrifice that Jesus has done for us. I highly recommend everyone to add “Faces Around the Cross’ not only to add to your Library but make time to read and study it. I promised that if you do then you will get a better understanding about the Lenten Seasons.

The Great Thirst: Prepared: An Archaeological Mystery

Title: The Great Thirst Part One: Prepared: an Archaeological Mystery (The Great Thirst Archaeological Mystery Serial Book 1)

Author: Mary C. Findley

Publisher:Findley Family Video (February 20, 2015)

Number of Pages: 116


ISBN-10: 1515258394

ISBN-13: 978-1515258391

About The Book:



Small town science teacher Keith Bradley climbs into a red Tesla with English teacher Talia Ramin for the field trip of a lifetime. At stake is a missing copy of the Scriptures on gold tablets. At risk is the trust of an ancient order sworn to keep the tablets safe.

Talia’s archaeologist aunt and uncle may have lost their last clue to artifact thieves. A government ultimatum might undo every lesson they have taught their students about keeping the Word safe.

from Chapter Eighteen – “Are You So Selfish?”

“What?” Keith jumped up. “What are you saying? We’re supposed to take the kids’ Bibles away from them? Their prayer journals? Their memory cards?”

“There’s no need to be defensive.” Doctor Williams glared up at him. “Please be seated. You will only be borrowing them, to get them scanned. And we want materials from everyone in the community. Parents, grandparents, ministers – Anyone who studies the Bible. Don’t you see? This will become a resource people all over the world can use, for all time. Mr. Bradley, your prayers, your thoughts, your study of the Bible could teach someone in Thailand, Mali, Alaska – someone in a spaceship traveling to Mars – these insights will become eternal.”

“But it’s voluntary, right?” Talia asked. “People don’t have to give us their Bibles, do they?”

“This program fails if it doesn’t accomplish the critical goal of gathering all the possible data,” Doctor Williams insisted.

“What exactly do you mean by ‘this program fails’?” Keith’s dad demanded.

“It doesn’t fulfill the requirements,” Doctor Williams said. “It doesn’t qualify for the grants.”

“You mean we lose everything we’ve gotten from implementing the Bible as Literature program?” Principal Bradley choked.

“Really, there’s nothing scary or unreasonable being asked for here. Are your Bible studies secret? Why does the idea of sharing them with the world disturb you? Are you that selfish?”

The Great Thirst Book Review:

This is the first novel I have read of Findley’s, “The Great Thirst : Prepared”. The Great Thirst: Prepared”  was supposed to one full-length work, but Findley decided to break it up into three novels. This action by Mary C. Findley has one very delightful effect and that is to what your appetite more than enough for the next instalment. I really enjoyed this great Christian Novel that accompanied with an Archaeological Mystery. What caught my attention was the subject matter, a missing copy of the Scriptures on gold tablets and the quest by those in the know to find and protect it. This set in motion for me with a theme of mystery, suspense, intrigue, good versus evil, spiritual warfare and a motive to show the importance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and what the Gospels means for all mankind. So I am passionate about The Great Thirst Archaeological Mystery Series. Findley prosperously hides in plain sight the main character, Talia Ramin, as the new English Literature teacher. Findley also has Talia teach a subject as Bible as literature as a sub-plot and this implement much spiritual aspects in this novel, as Talia explains, “…..we will not just be explaining how ancient literature compares to the Bible. We are going to get the knack of how to be discerning about ancient writings-how to tell the truth from error in what’s being taught by historians, archeologists. This course will prepare you to know truth when you see it.” Findley then implement more sub-plots with romance between Talia and Keith, Talia having a unique connection with Keith’s disabled sister. Then there is the hints to Talia’s past, Talia talking out loud while she is alone about protecting her identity and her true purpose, a Sprinter van that is trying to scare and scare her. Reason unexplained, but adds to the mystery and intrigue about her past and the link between this and the search for the missing Scripture scrolls.

This is a simple read and very entertaining. It is in a groove for young adult and I can see them enjoying this, including readers like me who isn’t a young adult although that still resides in me! Discovering some of Findley’s background for teaching and evangelising the message of the Gospel, I can visions her including some wonderful teaching moments while still making it very entertaining without being preachy. Youth love being taught when it is fun so she has a wonderful platform here for this. I can truly see that “The Great Thirst”  is one very promising series and I am very much looking forward to the complete package. A Fun, Entertaining Christian Novels that is Full of Mystery and Intrigue Concerning The Bible. This was an exceptional, expeditious read. The only thing I didn’t care for “The Great Thirst”  was the ending. I found it wasn’t very pleasant because there was no conclusion to the conflict at hand. Other than that, I loved it! Findley expertly construct valid Bible teachings and plot together in a wonderful harmony that is sure to please readers that appreciated the scriptures of the Bible.

After reading this Christian Book, I felt that I’d gain many knowledges from many valid truths, and her scriptural knowledge was quite well-informed. Mary either went to a theologian in the writing of “The Great Thirst” or is a long time Bible Study Student. I found the Character of Keith and Talia to be very engaging characters as well. We’re left fascinated if there is yet any romance to come between those two. (My assumption is that it will come about in one of the sequels). If you have someone who is curious about Jesus or Christianity, this would be a great fictional story to pass along to them to nurture them into an abounding awareness of faith and what it means to be a Christian. I’ve truly believed that this Christian novel is Highly entertaining and enlightening at the same time, it is so deep into the scriptures that you’ll find this book a great joy to read. I’d recommend this book to both saved and unsaved people alike. I Love the archeological dimension. Extremely interesting. Challenged me to remember to live my life so that Christ’s love can be seen through my character. Just think about it , The Power of Your Testimony is how you treat each others. This truly a Christian Novel that is tremendous, bible based and unique all in once. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in The Great Thirst Archaeological Mystery Series. This is a winner of a Christian Series with great characters that even this book is focus about archaeological mystery but it is blend with bible principles. This is another way to be introduced to Christ or having a better understanding about the Word of God by reading this great read.

About This Book:


Stop caring what others think. If God be for us whose opinions can be against us? (Romans 8:31). Stressing over other people’s opinions of you? You are not alone. Many of us struggle with worrying about what others think. . Life-changing transformation cannot take place unless we choose to stop worrying about what other people think of us. (7000 words)


Who Cares What People Think anyway?: Breaking Free From The bondage Of Other People’s Opinions Book Review:

Another Great Empower Motivational Book by Lynn R Davis. I can relate in this book “Who Cares What People Think Anyway? Breaking Free From The bondage of Other People’s Opinions”. The purpose of Lynn R Davis of minister this message to the readers through her writing is to share her personal struggles of dealing with opinions of individuals. She shows the steps about how to overcome those negative opinions from others. From my own experiences of my struggles of what others thinking about me got me so depressed that I end up being hospitalized from depression and anxiety. It got so bad that I didn’t want to live any longer. I lost my appetite. I couldn’t sleep at all. I was angry a lot. I lost a lot of weight that I look like death. Stress is a silent killer. If I didn’t seek medical help, most likely I would not be here today. I thought I lost my faith but I was able to read the Word of God to help overcome my depression. I was able to advocate for myself when the doctor, nurse and social worker tried their best to keep me down. I also was able to speak life and start walking in victory. After my hospital stay I decided to get rid off dead weight from my so called friends. As of today I don’t let other people’s opinions or them talking behind my back to interrupt my destiny that God have for me. No man can’t shut any doors that God provided for me. Actually I thank God for my haters today because they keep me so motivated to keep striving for my success and make a liar out of them. So the lessons I want to share for those who are reading this review, By Distress over somebody’s opinion can keep you in bondages. It just having chains of fear on your body that is keeping you from moving forward. Rememeber they aren’t telling your story but their owns.

The Life Lessons from This book for us, If we are going to have a touch into a power higher than our own physical self. Just being in denial about how we feel isn’t going to help. We have to go deeper within ourselves. We have to find the honest truth why we allow ourselves to worry what people think of us. From my own experience in 2014, I used to allow myself to worry about what others think about me. I was even try to impress them. I remember when I published my book that many individuals including some family members criticized me for writing a book. They were telling me that I was lazy. I wasn’t going make any money. Nobody don’t want to buy your book. They assume that I was only wanted to be an author. I was so angry that it caused me to have a mental break down and anxiety attack. I have to be hospitalized for depression and anxiety for two months. After my hospital stay and my journey of recovery, As of today I am more focused on the God that are in me than putting the focused only on me without Him. By faith, I am more confident in the process of what God can accomplish through those abilities. I remain focused on the image of God. My freedom is in the image of God. My power is in the image of God. My Creativity is in the image of God. My self worth is in the image of God. My unconditional love is in the image of God and not in other people’s opinion. I don’t care what other people think of me. You too shouldn’t allow yourself to care what other people think of you. In the image of God you are Kings and Queens. God see something great in you but it is up to you. That is the greatest and powerful image that can put some revival in us. Revival from God represents change. We must be that Change for new things will happen.

About This Book:

This is the book your pastor does not want you to read. For too long, Church folks have taken the words of their favorite preachers, and blindly followed the beliefs of others,without thoroughly studying the Word for themselves. People have hinged their faith, not upon the Word of God, but upon the words and interpretations of man that have little, if any, backing in Scripture. Entrusting how you live your life, and what you will be held accountable for before God, is not something that should be left to chance based upon another’s interpretation. It should be grounded solely on a personal relationship with God and a foundation rooted in Biblical teaching. How you view: tithing, suicide, gay marriage, pornography, political issues, communion, speaking in tongues, smoking, drinking, gambling, and other things, should be guided solely based on the Word of God. In Lord Deliver Me From Church Folks, Brian Ganges boldly challenges you to take a second look at everyday issues from the standpoint of Biblical teaching vs. the teaching of Man. Through thought provoking illustrations, supported by corresponding Scripture, Mr. Ganges is the spiritual conductor along a journey of educating what the Word of the Lord says concerning how to be free from the bondage of the traditions of man.

Lord Deliver Me From Church Folks Book Review:

From beginning to end I really enjoyed Brian Ganges’ book “Lord Deliver Me From Church Folks” and improve my mind from this great read. Brian created a spectacular title for this book is a sermon by itself. Brian express his concerns with the Christian Community about the problems of Church Folks. Biblical issue were mentioned a lot in this book. What I got from the message that Brian try to minister to those who are reading this book. The perception of manifestation lies at the compassion of the Christian Faith. We as Christian have no doubt that God has uniquely revealed Himself to humanity in the scene of human ancient times. We as Christians do not believe that we seek God and then find Him. We place confidence in that God chose to reveal Himself to His Children (us). Our Belief is responses to the self- disclosure in history of God.

It is important here to note that the content of revelation is not information or data, but God Himself (or, in philosophical categories, knowledge about God, although I would prefer to leave God as the subject of revelation rather than its object, or to leave it in relational categories rather than ontological ones). That is, it is a self-revelation, or self-disclosure, not revelation about things or ideas. Much of the early church following Augustine, who was himself influenced by neo-Platonic idealistic philosophy that saw the world in terms of absolute ideas, understood all knowledge to be revealed by God. This contrasted to Aristotle who held that some knowledge can be apprehended by the senses, as we do now in scientific research (interestingly enough, this was a view shared by the Israelites in the OT Wisdom traditions, for example Proverbs).

The idea that all knowledge about everything comes by revelation from God has made its way in various forms even into modern thinking. Usually this has been through religious traditions that use the sovereignty of God as a primary theological category. This has relevance in how we think about Scripture, because some adopt this view in relation to the Bible and see Scripture itself as direct revelation by God covering all knowledge and all data. Scripture is seen in this view in absolute categories. It is from this perspective that the terms inerrant and infallible are most often used to describe Scripture

a biblical issue and I appreciated the way he walked through his views and so I decided to purchase his book. It is written as a collection of letters and addresses a wide variety of topics and his stances are backed up with scripture. I gained a lot of new insight into the teachings from the word of God and appreciate the hard work Brian put in to lovingly teach others with support from God’s word. I highly recommend. Plenty of great discussion on doctrine, backed up with scripture

As a TRUTH seeker, I was very pleased when I read Lord, Deliver Me from Church Folks. My spiritual journey has taken me to many churches and I’ve been involved in many faiths as I searched for true knowledge however; I was also left with many questions when comparing church doctrine vs. The Scriptures. I found that many “religions” heavily incorporated traditions into the church body rather than deeply searching the Word of God. Because of my experiences, I was quite surprised when I read Brian’s book. He touched on subjects that many church going people would probably never be so bold to ask. He also clarified many traditional points that I believe we all need to look at and then examine for ourselves. The best part of the book is that every subject that he tackles he BACKS UP WITH SCRIPTURE. No matter what your kind of “Christianity” is, I think this book is one that you should read, search the scriptures and then take an accounting of he things you’ve done in the past simply because the head of your church said you should rather than you, yourself, looking to see what God himself asked of you. I highly recommend this book if you are someone who claims to follow or tries to follow Jesus and I applaud Brian for being so bold in writing this book and touching on subjects that MUST be faced. I must say that i had the privilege of reading Brian’s book and from start to finish, it was absolutely amazing. I found it very unique from the onset how Brian’s setup of the book was along the same lines as the epistles that were written by the New Testament writers. Not in book format, but each chapter designed like a personal letter to the reader. I must say that each chapter, or letter, is a hard hitting, thought provoking assessment on the current order of church and a rally to rethink some of those assessments. Brian has a unique, and often humorous way of driving his points home to the reader, and the most important aspect, BRIAN USES SCRIPTURE….in context and with proper exegesis. I would recommend this book to anyone that is not only concerned about the current state of the church, but also to see if their personal beliefs are lining up with the Word of God, or their favorite preacher!

Genna’s Fight


“I am divorcing you Genna. You are leaving my house tonight, and you are leaving alone. You will not be taking Samuel with you. He is staying with me. You will not be carrying anything but the clothes on your back. You will not be taking the car because it is my car. I brought it. And now, I will need it for the next woman in my life. You will not be taking the jewelry I brought you, the clothes I brought you or the shoes I brought you. You will not be taking anything. You will be leaving me the way you were when I met you, with nothing. You are nothing and you will be taking nothing.” Genna was looking down because she could not face Tom. The years they had been together had been brutal on her part and the abused endured had literally made her feel worthless and vile in his eyes. Every word he was speaking was hitting her like an atomic bomb. The worst part was that she would not be taking her ten year old son, whom she had carried for eight and a half months and done her best to bring up, with her. Tom continued, “I have some papers for you to sign.” Pointing to the table near the door to their palatial home, he continued, “There are the divorce papers. And there are also papers to sign indicating to the judge that you do not want anything from me. The last set of papers releases my son, Sammy, into my care. You are a no-good woman and I cannot wait to get you out of here, and out of my sight for good. It was the worst twenty-two years of my life putting up with the likes of you. Good riddance. This is good bye.” After years of so much abuse, beatings and scorn that began from her child-hood and followed her into adult-hood, pushing her to the verge of suicide on more than one occasion, can Genna re-discover her true self, rise above her horrid past and regain all that she has lost, including her son?

Genna’s Fight Book Review:

My thoughtfulness on this book “Genna’s Fight” written by Sheldon D. Newton is a well written story. From the first page of the story have truly captures my mind and kept me interested of every pages that I read. Because of that I didn’t want to put this book down.  Sheldon D. Newton makes sure that “Genna’s Fight” profoundly demonstrates by what method in the blink of an eye, God is able to take a dishearten circumstance and provide you attraction for ashes. This is a prerequisite read. This book is truly an absolutely mind captivating that can become into a blockbuster movie. With this awesome book that was well developed with great characters, I pray that this narrative will be discover by a film director/ maker like a Tyler Perry. I know they will If you are an individuals that may be struggling with an issue not even in the same category to what Genna went through. I truly believe that you can still relate and discover the strength to move forward. God never fail and not done with us. Furthermore, sometimes we are dealt with test though they be going to sometimes be difficult but we must fight. Caroline mentioned to Genna that she should remember her past but not condemn herself. On the other hand to become conscious of that if God could do what He did for you and things could change for you. Then things can also change for others. Things can be replaceable but life can’t. Remarkably  we shouldn’t treasure things above people. We need to be careful how we treat each other. Furthermore, even if you have to excuse yourself from some for your own safety or security, makes sure that you do it gracefully. There were a lot of life lessons from these characters who were dealing with domestic violence and how they empower each others. We can’t be rewarded if we do not first bring to maturity and be victorious to the other side better than we may have started.

This is an awesome book to read and hope that if one day finds its way in the hands of a film director/maker that they do the story line justice in making it a powerful movie. Mr. Sheldon truly has a gift from God and I pray much success in his future work.  We can’t be rewarded if we do not first complete and come through to the other side better than we may have started. From the beginning of this narrative, Genna will gets your thoughtfulness  and then retain it for the duration to the conclusion. And then you wonder what next? I was touched how Genna’s transition in distinction to that darkness into light!! God is extremely competently great!! Sheldon makes sure that this narrative to consider be a steadfast heart touching. Tremendous epilogue. Genna really pull through from her turbulence past in an amazing way. So reasonable, that we can get the picture what she was dealing with. This was definitely a beautifully written, and it didn’t seem like a  fiction story to be a story, but real life.,

About This Book:


“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Oberlin, Ohio – 1844

Lawrence Stewart is a rare man. Raised with his grandmother’s Miami Indian tribe, as a Negro he has consistently walked between two worlds most of his life. He devotes his time and study to becoming a lawyer, fully intending to obtain justice for the ousted Miami Indians. No Negro man has accomplished these things before, but he is not daunted. He studies for his exams as he rides circuit through the backwoods of Ohio, handing out justice to people who cannot easily reach a courthouse. His life is perfectly set until one June day. Aurelia “Realie” Baxter made her way from enslavement in Georgia to the free land Lake Huron in Ohio. Far from happy as a slave doing the bidding of a woman cooped up in a house all day, Realie is a bona fide tomboy with a special gift with horses. Now, she is so close to freedom in Canada, she can smell it, but her plans are interrupted when Lawrence shoots her…by mistake….
Lawrence cannot study encumbered with the care of an enslaved woman, but he’s responsible for her injury. Realie wants to get to Canada, but Lawrence won’t let her get away in trying to help her. One chance meeting can change your life from what you thought you wanted….to what you really need.

The Lawyer’s Luck Book Review:

Piper Huguley created and deliver a pleasurable story in the entire book “The Lawyer’s Luck”. One thing that amaze me was the fiction story in “The Lawyer’s Luck”. This was a great narration from the perspective of Aurelia “Realie” Baxter, a runaway slave, and Lawrence Stewart, a lawyer. Huguley achieve the pattern of two such disparate people, which deepens the characters. This narrative able to achieve the entertaining characters of Aurelia “Realie” Baxter , a self-confident escaped slave woman, and Lawrence Stewart, a newly educated lawyer, meeting under bizarre circumstances during a horrible time in our nation’s history.The drama bring to light in the wake of affecting veil of the slavery and get around about into all of us many-sided levels. The Character of Realie experiences a difficult time trusting anyone. As a consequence, she is set in her ways will to do whatever she able to get to freedom shines through. The Character of Lawrence is flawless as a man who walks into two worlds. As a consequence is apart from slavery on the other hand still affected by its discrimination. As a reader, you can really be fond of the complicated relationship between the Milfords as well. I really appreciate this Inspirational Historical Fiction Story . I also appreciate the ironies of slavery, freedom, North vs South, race relations, feminism, and personal identity that Piper Huguley comprised. There aren’t any limitation when it comes to any of those fundamental.  Piper Huguley doesn’t hold back from the meeting point of this time, earlier it manages to still give Realie and Lawrence a fascinating romance.The Christian fundamental are another incredible layer to the narrative, along with “The Lawyer’s Luck” absolutely doesn’t incline toward 20th & 21st century approach of the faith were form onto the past (an controversy I have with many Inspirational Historical Romance). Remarkably for those who are interested readers that commonly shy away from IHR, this is the narrative about two people who try their best to keep the faith in spite of the injustices and prejudices of their time. “The Lawyer’s Luck” is a marvelous prequel. I really loved the rapid momentum, realistic perspective of Lawrence and Realie. I love their comparison, their particularity, and even the things they are connected in characteristic. Piper Huguley allows the Holy Spirit to guide the pen to write this novella that provided an intriguing compassionate of the Mitford College series to follow.  In my opinion, “The Lawyer’s Luck” was a delightful read from Piper Huguley will truly definitely make her mark in the publishing industry. Author Huguley passionately brings to life the reality both of them must face to find their happy ending. I am looking forward to reading the full length novel in this series and more books by this gifted author.

About The Author:


J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case homicide detective, adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University, Christian case maker and author. J. Warner was a conscientious and vocal atheist through his undergraduate and graduate work in Design and Architecture (CSULB and UCLA); he always considered himself to be an “evidentialist”. His experience in law enforcement only served to strengthen his conviction that truth is tied directly to evidence. But at the age of thirty-five, J. Warner took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian Worldview and determined that Christianity was demonstrably true. After becoming a Christ follower in 1996, Jim continued to take an evidential approach to truth as he examined the Christian worldview. He eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.

J. Warner served as a Youth Pastor for several years, then planted a church in 2006. Along the way, he created and built the Cold-Case Christianity website, blog and podcast as a place to post and talk about what he discovered related to the evidence supporting Christianity. Jim has appeared on television and radio, explaining the role that evidence plays in the Christian definition of “faith” and defending the historicity of Jesus, the reliability of the Bible and the truth of the Christian worldview. Jim also speaks at churches, retreats and camps as he seeks to help people become confident Christian case makers.

J. Warner’s professional investigative work has received national recognition; his cases have been featured repeatedly on NBC’s Dateline, and he’s been awarded the Police and Fire Medal of Valor “Sustained Superiority” Award. Relying on over two decades of investigative experience, J. Warner provides his readers with the tools they will need to investigate the claims of Christianity and make a convincing case for the truth of the Christian worldview.

About This Book:




Written by an L. A. County homicide detective and former atheist, Cold-Case Christianity examines the claims of the New Testament using the skills and strategies of a hard-to-convince criminal investigator. Christianity could be defined as a “cold case”: it makes a claim about an event from the distant past for which there is little forensic evidence. In Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally recognized skills as a homicide detective to look at the evidence and eyewitnesses behind Christian beliefs. Including gripping stories from his career and the visual techniques he developed in the courtroom, Wallace uses illustration to examine the powerful evidence that validates the claims of Christianity. A unique apologetic that speaks to readers’ intense interest in detective stories, Cold-Case Christianity inspires readers to have confidence in Christ as it prepares them to articulate the case for Christianity.

Cold-Case Christianity Book Review:

Let me refrain from  the preliminary here and just share my review: “Cold-Case Christianity” is the beyond compare in anticipation of apologetics book in regards to the commemorate of the Gospels I have ever read. If you are looking for a book in that area, then you need to read “Cold-Case Christianity”. If you are not looking for a book in that area, still purchase and read “Cold-Case Christianity” anyway because it is a great book that can empower growth in your Christian walk. Here and Now, lets get to the details.

Cold-Christianity” draws a picture in an image of an investigative journey through Christian ancient times. From what source did we get the Gospels? Can we really trust them? Do we know who was Jesus? Do we have knowledge anything about Him? As yet the approach that Wallace drawing near this question will draw even individuals who really doesn’t care about the particular topics into the mystery. In the process of a cold-case homicide detective, Wallace approaches these questions with an eye of a detective, take advantage of his extensive knowledge of the gathering and evaluation of evidence to investigate Christianity forensically.

He bring to pass the work with a section on method. He pick an argument that we must learn to acknowledge our hypothesis and be aware of them although we begin an investigation. Like the detective who walks into a crime scene with a suspicious notion of how the murder played out, we can conveniently fall into the trap of using our apprehension about a legitimacy claim to color our investigation of the evidence for that claim. Research to infer is another vastly important piece of the investigation. People must be taught to distinguish between the “imaginable” and the “objective” . This awakening to “addictive exposition” is presented in corresponding a way as to make it comprehensible for those unfamiliar with even the term, while also serving as great discipline on how to teach others to reason for those involved in apologetics.

In my opinion, I truly found Chapter 3, “Think Circumstantially” is perhaps the fundamental chapter for “Cold-Case Christianity”. Wallace’s annotation so what is necessary in order to present evidence “beyond a reasonable doubt” is not automatically “direct evidence.” In order that is direct evidence, the type of evidence which can demonstrate something all by itself (ex. waking up and watching snow fallen outside as formation for it actually snowing) is recurrently thought of to abide the common for the truth. Thus far assuming that this were the common for the truth, at that point we would by no means be able to be convinced of anything. The main point is to have the understanding that a representation of out-of-the-way evidences can add up to make the caseA perfect example, if a person who is a suspect in a murder is recognized to have possessions of the victim’s key, smudge spruce up pants (questionable blood stains), tested the height and weight in which a witness saw leaving from the crime scene, has boots that matched the description, was nervous during the interview and changed his story, has a hammer (hammer was the murder weapon) which has also been bloody and cracked, and the like, these can add up to a very compelling case. In general, one of these evidences would not lead one to say they could logically determine if the man was the murderer, although supplementary together they can provide a case which pushes the case beyond a reasonable doubt that the man was the murderer.

In a similar way, the documentation for the presence of God can add up to a compelling case for the God of humanistic conviction. Wallace then turns to audit a number of these arguments, in conjunction with the moral, cosmological, fine-tuning, and design controversy. These are each touched on to sum things up, as a kind of preliminary to take under advisement when turning to the case for the Gospels. Not to mention, the notion of “circumstantial” or “cumulative” case debate hints towards the capacity to explore the Bible and the Gospels to see if they are true.

Wallace then turns to review the Gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John in hardly enough of what he has experienced as a detective. He appropriate forensic statement analysis as well as a statistic of other means by which to investigate witnesses and eyewitness reports to determine whether the Gospels conceivably trusted. He starts with the Book of Mark and makes a disagreement that Mark had firsthand contact with Peter, one of the Disciples and an Apostle. He display how we lie in one’s power to search for. Along with find “artifacts” textual additions that were late into the accounts of the Gospels. None of these are miscalculation, as a result of we know about them by investigating the evidence we have from the manuscript tradition. By molding the puzzle of the evidences for the Gospels, we outline an intact picture of Christ.

It is clear to get engaged in “conspiracy theory” types of explanations for the events in the Bible. People dispute that all kinds of different explanations are possible. Thus far, Wallace report again that there is a difference between possible and reasonable. Matter-of-factly throwing out possible scenarios does nothing to sabotage the truth claims of the Gospels if the Gospels’ own account is expand reasonable.

Sure-enough the important part of “Cold-Case Christianity” is the notion that we make the grade tracing back the “chain of custody” of the Gospels. Beyond arguing that we are able to see how the New Testament was passed approvals from one eyewitness to disciple to disciple and so on, Wallace dispute that conspiracy assumption which argue the Gospel stories were made up have a much less reasonable explanation than that they are primary accounts of what happened. Substantial of the information in these chapters is compelling and express on knowledge of the Apostles’ and their disciples. It therefore provides a great basic principles to church history.

Wallace produce a number of other illustration and evidences from the New Testament. without exception of these can be challenged individually, however to do so would be to miss the forest for the trees.

All of these illustration are highlighted by world of nature stories from Wallace’s Career as a detective. I believe that readers and even those who are belligerent to Christianity will be drawn in by these illustration. It makes reading “Cold-Case Christianity” similar to reading a thriller/suspense/mystery novel, corresponding that readers like myself will not stop reading. Considering for a example, just as looking at characteristic between possible/reasonable, he account a lengthy illustration of discovering a dead body and eliminating various explanations for the cause of death through observations like “having a knife in the back” as making it much less probable that accidental death is a reasonable explanation, despite being possible.

“Cold-Case Christianity”
is also has several of other helpful tools for those interested in seeking more knowledge. There are reaction with additional enlightenment and explanations, as well as notes from various court cases or law books that explain some of the headier material.

Broad in content, “Cold-Case Christianity” is the beyond compare opening remarks to the commemorate of the Gospels I have ever read. I matter-of-factly cannot recommend it highly enough. Wallace’s discussions about the evidence in an engaging manner and utilizes a particular approach that will cause even impartial readers to continue reading, just to see what he talking about next. I am not exaggerating when I say that this “Cold-Case Christianity” is a absolute must read for everyone. I will definitely going to read this book again part of my devotional reading. I will be reading more works from this Author.
