A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Changed by a Catch by Amy B. Crowe teaches valuable lessons of obedience and safety to young children, instilling in them a desire to follow directions from their parents. 

Highlighting safety rules such as what to do when a stranger comes to your door, giving out privileged information, the importance of obeying your parents, even if it doesn’t seem important to you and not to make judgments upon others’ differences highlights just some of J.J.’s life-lessons after he is changed by a catch thrown by his sister (out of all people). Cute, funny and wholesome, this story offers a balanced look at discipline with a loving touch, opening the way for parents and children to
softly talk about the importance of safety and following the rules.

This story will delight parents, (and make kids and parents alike chuckle). Little J.J. is sweet and sincere and he just can’t believe some of the messes that landed him into time out, time away from video games and grounded him for a month. 

Written from J.J.'s perspective, we find the inner-workings of a little boy learning about life. The author invites you into the story from the beginning and readers will be captivated by J.J. as he begins his story while having his head stuck between the rails of a staircase.

This book quickly became one of my favorite books for children, as the author encompasses facets of sound parenting that embrace communication in a fair and calm manner without guilt and condemnation. Children will learn from J.J. the reason why it is important to listen and do what your parents say the first time.

Holiness


Hebrews 12:14 Pursue peace with all men, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.

The actions of the people of the world are based on the theme of the book of Judges, which is, “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes,” Judges 17:6.  You can’t afford to follow in their ways if your desire is to be a reflection of Jesus.  Holiness and peace are necessary to qualify you to see the Lord.  Some will compromise to have peace without conflict, but don’t consider the necessity of holiness in their actions.  They mix all kinds of worldliness with their Christianity, hoping the Lord will overlook it.  There are others who have a bitter spirit, or refuse to forgive others, and fail to realize this disqualifies them from a life of holiness.  Ask the Holy Spirit to show you if there is anything displeasing to the Lord in your life today.  Find out how He wants you to resolve the issue, so that you can be pleasing to Him in every area of your life.

The Prosperity Gospel and Wealth

Back to Eden: A Biblical Perspective on Wealth and Poverty by Dr. Simon Thiessen gives readers an insightful and thought provoking book that offers a systematic Biblical approach to the issues of wealth and poverty.


Back to Eden 
A Biblical Perspective on Wealth and Poverty
By: Dr. Simon Thiessen

With several key concepts, the author speaks broadly of the evangelical movement that divides into two basic groups:  one group stresses the personal relationship with Jesus Christ while ignoring their social responsibilities to the poor and the other that stresses both a personal relationship with the Lord that encourages, “a practical evidence of their faith as expressed in our responsible stewardship of our entire life.” (p.xi) 

Beginning from Creation to the Fall of man, the author takes readers on a discovery through the Bible from Old and New Testament text that reveals a fascinating understanding of Scripture when it comes to becoming prosperous, what it means to live life abundantly and God’s structure of wealth. As the author states, “Our purpose is to arrive at a perspective about wealth and poverty which is in accordance with scriptural teaching.” (p.xii)

Within this, and by combining academic research, Christian theology and the varying facets of human nature, the world, sin and righteousness, the author shed lights on what the Church’s social responsibilities to the poor are from a Biblical viewpoint, thus answering key questions that come to mind regarding wealth and possessions. Mentioning that God has given us spiritual and natural laws that govern the universe, the author helps readers also understand fundamentals that qualify Christians to partake of the goodness of God that involves a firm commitment to covenant that must be observed. The book also reveals the dangers of wealth, and what it means to truly prosper.

Such chapters as: The Creation – Fall Events, The Concept of Possession and Poverty Invaded by Creation and Fall Event, The Sinai – Covenant Event, Wealth and Poverty in the Old Testament, New Testament Wealth and Poverty, Living in Truth – Sanctification, Christ and the Rich, The Teachings of Paul and Soteriological Implications. These chapters further reveal Biblical truths in such a way that one will be forever enriched, offering a balanced scriptural mindset when it comes to wealth, poverty and the worship of the Lord.

This is a must-read for the entire Body of Christ to be made aware of truths that are within the Word of God.  With the modern prevalence of the prosperity Gospel and for the person that has questions (in regards to wealth, materialism, money, possessions, and how they relate to eternity), this book comes highly recommended. Well-written and concise, the transparency of this book will no doubt bring deep conviction while reminding Christians of the importance of stewardship with their possessions, time and influence. 

*Note: Our privilege in the service of God is not to be taken for granted -- this book brings enlightenment, education and inspiration to those who desire a true and firm commitment to the Lord.

Holiness Adorns Your house, O Lord, Forever

Psalm 93:5 Your testimonies are very sure; holiness adorns Your house, O Lord, forever.   

Heaven is adorned with holiness, which means NO one who is not holy will enter Heaven. Many claim they are on their way to Heaven, but will find when they pass away, they will be turned down. 

Matthew 7:21 states, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” Church attendance alone does not make a person holy, neither do good works. It’s not outward appearance, but an inward lifestyle that really counts. 

Obeying God’s commandments and living for Him in thought, word and deed start the process. God wants to work in and through you in a great way, but He needs a full commitment on your part. Jesus tells you, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Only Believe

Gideon - Only Believe 

About the author: RW Hahn was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He grew up in the inner-city and went to Miami Edison Sr. He graduated from Northwestern University in Radio/TV/Film with a Bachelor of Science degree. RW is an actor, director, and an award-winning screenwriter, as well.

Found by a single woman in an unused motel room, the baby boy seems to be nothing short of a miracle from the very beginning of his life. He is accompanied by a Bible, the Gideon Bible, hence his name. The inscription inside the Bible states: "It's a gift." 

Jenny relishes the role of becoming little Gideon's mother. Perhaps focusing on this little life will help her regain her own. Jenny brings Gideon to her secluded family home atop Dora Manor Mountain. She is so grateful to have received this precious child that, like barren Hannah in the Bible, she promises to dedicate Gideon to God, and reads to Gideon from the Bible day and night. She hides him, keeping him away from the townsfolk, the same people who killed her family . . . over a church.

As Gideon grows older, Jenny starts to realize just how special he is. Gideon truly believes in the word of God, and becomes Christ-like in his ability to heal through his belief.  It starts when he blesses the vegetable garden, which then produces huge, perfect fruit. Then when Scrappy the goat dies, Gideon blesses him, and the next thing Jenny knows, Scrappy is running through the yard, quite alive. 

Gideon knows he has a mission to fulfill. He needs to lead people to Jesus in order to save their souls. A gnarled hand. A blind eye. A club foot. A stutter. An unsaved man who dies and sees the gates of Hell, but Gideon brings him back so the man can live a purposeful life and go to Heaven when his time truly comes.

As word gets out, Jenny realizes people are going to want to see Gideon, and she will have to share him with the world, starting with the very people she's been shielding him from, the townsfolk. When they finally do all converge on the mountain, it is through Gideon that they realize it's time to put away their differences, their prejudices, and accept each other-whether black or white.  The story is told by a preacher who has run out of gas near a small church in the South. 

The congregation is expecting him; their late pastor told them on his deathbed that their new preacher would appear one day, having just run out of gas near the church. While the preacher has been speaking, another man has entered the church. He, too, is a pastor and he, too, has run out of gas near the church. He begins to preach, and the crowd goes wild with appreciation. This, surely, is the man they've been waiting for. Then he introduces himself: "I...killed...Gideon."

Kingdom Victory

2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.  

There have been times when guards became distracted or fell asleep at their post, during those times an enemy slipped by them. God, who has promised to guard you, He will never slumber, Psalm 121:3. 

The other thing He has promised is that He will establish you. Some people seem to be established in problems, and others seemed to be established in the realm of confusion. God wants to work through you so that you are established in success. Notice what David said in Psalm 1:3 “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” The evil one doesn’t want you to prosper, but God wants to stop him from accomplishing his goal. Praise the Lord in a greater way today, because He is going to cause you to be victorious.

A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Written from a Christian perspective, Marianne C. McDonough offers readers hope through faith, prayer and trust in God, along with confidence, knowledge, strength and guidance upon hearing the diagnosis of the “C” word.

As a previous breast cancer survivor, the author writes with passion to bring newly-diagnosed cancer patients and those who love them a strong sense of empowerment to fight this invasive disease. 

With ease and candor, she presents facts about cancer, breaks down the myths surrounding cancer and ushers in truth within an 8-step guide to begin a positive path to healing and battling cancer. Intertwining her courageous fight against cancer and the ups and downs of her fight that include emotional, spiritual and physical aspects, the author encourages newly-diagnosed patients to get real with themselves and others, offering them positive wisdom for the journey ahead after a cancer diagnosis.

The 8-step guide highlights 8 initial evaluations and/or questions that patients ask themselves during this extremely stressful and difficult time such as: What do I know about cancer and believe to be true about myself as a cancer patient? How shall I interact with others, especially family members, friends and medical providers? How can I select the best treatment protocol? How do I feel about possibly dying? Where is God in all of this? What am I afraid of? How do I deal with stress? Do I dare hope for a future?

Offering real advice for real circumstances: This book is crucial during the initial diagnosis and beginning journey when one is faced with life-changing decisions that a cancer diagnosis brings.  

With an in-depth analysis of what getting real is, the author describes an introspective journey that brings strength, sensitivity, and inner clarity to patients and helps them make positive changes. Thus, readers are encouraged to access their thoughts, beliefs and feelings in regards to a life-threatening disease, considering their own mortality, their belief system while the author vehemently urges others to fight cancer with all that is within them. Offering tools, wisdom and keen guidance, this book is key to bringing healing and wholeness during the process that provides hope and lasting positive change during what can be one of the most trying times during one’s life.

A highly recommended read for newly-diagnosed cancer patients, those who love them and those who serve within the medical community or hospital settings. ~ Get your copy of 8 Steps to Getting Real with Cancer at Amazon.

Growing Up In A Communist Country


The Destination

Author Oxana Eliahu shares her incredible autobiography in her book, The Destination. With dreams of making it to America to find wealth and success, her story is captivating. Born in Leningrad, Russia (now Saint Petersburg), Oxana was a Russian born Jew. 

Confused about her identity as a Jew, Oxana at one time became a devout Communist, which was the expected norm within Russia. Growing up in a Communist country, as the reader will experience, was not a walk in the park. Some days they had to wait in long lines for hours just to get a few bananas, some berries and some decent clothes. 

In regards to the subject of religion, Oxana was brought up in a secular atmosphere where there was no talk of God in her household. Believing in evolution, her opinion was that people who trusted in God were primitive. Her only exposure to God was through old books and pictures she saw in museums. God in His sovereignty reveals His unending love for Oxana and that becomes an unforgettable journey of redemption to her God-given destiny.

Then in the 80’s Jews were beginning to be released from Russia. She found herself in Italy as a refugee, seeking a country, but no country would have her. Russia considered her a traitor and Italy would not allow her to work or gain citizenship. Her Visa to America was denied and she found herself hopelessly lost with not enough money to survive. Her story is incredible, filled with anticipation, as she describes her experiences, the persecution, her resolve through the doubt and the heartbreak to The Destination, and how she was once a Russian citizen, a Jew, now without a country or place to call “home.”

Throughout her powerful testimony, the miracles of God become evident, as she discovers Yeshua (Jesus) and begins to find faith through Him. Her story does not end there. God led Oxana to Canada, and then to Israel, and finally to America where she now shares her faith that represents a loving God to readers as He guided her into her purpose as a worship singer and songwriter.
