This epic novel is truly a mini-series in the making; you will not be able to put this book down!

Be transported back in time again by author Debra Diaz, be taken back to ancient Rome, to a time when Rome was at its height of glory and a bustling metropolis. Christ had just been crucified and believers in Christ were called, "Christians" and to believe in Christ as God, was to risk death, for 'Rome had many different Gods'.

Rome was a good place to hide for the two fugitives running for their lives. Young Alysia, now set free from slavery and Paulus Valerius Maximus, her true love, who has now taken Alysia as his wife, are both now steadfast believers in Christ, yet fugitives ever since Alysia's accusation of murdering an elite Roman.

This novel, "Man of God" will keep you fully entertained and have you falling in love with the two main characters. Each day, Paulus, Alysia and Rachel exist in unity, enjoying and savoring each tender moment as it passes by.

Each day is a treasure, each day with each other is magnificent. Until that one fateful day…

Filled with intrigue and betrayal, this captivating novel takes the reader on a journey through the lives of young Alysia and Paulus Valerius, who has turned out to be quite a 'man of god'. Alysia, once doomed to a life of misery as a slave bound forever in chains, now has found love, stability and family life with her husband and their young daughter, Rachel. She has found Paulus and he has found her and nothing can separate them, nor can anything separate them from the love of Christ.

Author Debra Diaz has taken these two characters and shown how two can become one in Christ and how a marriage with Christ can be more rewarding and stronger than ever. With the scripture, "…and a threefold cord is not quickly broken" in mind (Ecc. 4:12 KJV), the author takes the reader to a new level of intimacy with the characters and dedication to Christ. The love of Christ shines brightly through this novel and will grip your soul. This novel is truly an epic journey of the Christian faith, true love and the freedom, forgiveness and new life found in Christ.

Author Reid A.

(p.66) Thus this is the essence of this book, to understand God, his design and the nature of things. The author challenges the reader to dig deeper into the scriptures to find knowledge of Him who created mankind.

To know God is to seek Him, have faith in Him and who He is. To gain a deeper revelation and understanding of Him is to acquire knowledge with understanding of who He is and who we are as humans.

Each chapter builds upon each other that will lead the reader into a deeper knowledge of God.

Shedding light throughout this book, the author, answers many questions you may have about Christianity and God.

No Innocent Affair by Edward F. Mrkvicka Jr. with Kelly Helen Mrkvicka takes a look at the plague of the 21st century and one of the main contributors to the destruction of the American family-the sin of Adultery. Being a lay minister and a man who has studied the Word for many years, the author, Edward F. Mrkvicka Jr., gives not his opinion, but gives the absolute truth of God's Word through an extensive categorical list of scripture therefore laying first a biblical foundation. Then by clearly stating first God's view and comparing it with Society's view, the author lays bare the truth about adultery and the devastating consequences of adultery, not only to the person who commits the sin, but to others we love in our life who are the innocent victims of this pervasive ripple effect sin that is so prevalent in our society.

Most do no realize the far-reaching consequences of the sin of adultery in their lives, nor the cost and the author makes no mistake that there is no such thing as 'an innocent affair'. This book is an eye opener for most and highly recommended for anyone either contemplating an adulterous affair or for those who may have been entangled in an adulterous affair. The author shows the way out with some of most practical teachings culminated from the infallible Word of God to bring others out of their sin and into the light of the Lord.

Openly, but lovingly, the author shares the unavoidable, yet dire consequences of adultery and reveals that not only does it affect our lives spiritually and physically, but the sin has a ripple effect that goes on to "… virtually every innocent person in our lives" (p.11). The consequences are so monumental, that no one in their right mind "armed" with the truth of God's Word would commit adultery, but sadly, the author concedes from a recent survey, "…that over 88 percent of Americans believe adultery is wrong. Yet 77 percent of marriages involve at least one adultery." This alarming fact in our society today is bringing many to the wide-path of destruction. Quite simply put, it is choosing death over life.

Edward Mrkvicka's true desire is two-fold, first for all those that may be contemplating adultery to know the absolute truth of God's Word and the dire consequences and for those that are in an adulterous affair or have been in the past that they would also realize the devastating consequences and that the truth would bring true repentance in their life. Lastly, Mrkvicka's desire is that all would receive eternal life in Jesus Christ. Again, the author does not give his opinion, but God's view and His Holy Word. This book offers no excuses, nor apologies, but gives the truth of the Word of God. This book is truly a blessing to the body of Christ and to all who read it.

This subject is not an easy subject to be discussed, nor is it very popular, but with so many on the path to destruction in our society it is a must read for anyone entangled in or contemplating adultery. This fascinating and well-written book exposes the truth and deception in the sin of adultery and brings forth light to the subject. Thankfully, the author ends that there is hope and states, "God can save us" (p.11). For there is one hope, and that one hope is the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. Come, read, know the truth and be set free.

"Who's on Board?" by Dr. Joseph Hyskell Jr. is an inspiring and scripturally based bible study. The author discusses twelve checkpoints that help the reader to understand what it is to be a "born-again" believer. Filled with scripture application, Author Dr. Joseph Hysekll Jr., has carefully laid down a solid foundation built upon the Holy Scriptures. The twelve checkpoints then can be discussed in a small group setting or read individually. The author indicates that many profess to be a Christian, but their life does not demonstrate a life lead by the "indwelling" of the Holy Spirit. This book will identify the "born-again" believer and demonstrates the difference between knowing about God, and really knowing Christ in the power of His resurrection.

An exciting and short read, this book is an excellent ministering tool that can be used to bring others into the Kingdom of God. This study, as suggested by the author, is recommended for groups not bigger than ten to keep the teachings on a very personal level. Written with much wisdom from scripture and from a man that has over 52 years in ministry as a Pastor, teacher and missionary, Dr. Joseph Hyskell Jr.s' teaching has captured the essence of what it means to be "born-again."
