10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Overcoming AbuseMy Body Belongs to God and Me – A Child’s Body Safety Guide by Reina Davison speaks to children, telling them they are “Overcomers.” This is a wonderful truth in God’s Word, as she begins the book by the definition of what an overcomer is. Opening children’s eyes to the truth of God’s purpose and plans for them, she goes on to describe God’s gift of free will. Describing Good Touch and Bad Touch; she elaborates on these two and what that can encompass. There are Good Touch people and Bad Touch people. Her book gives hope to children who have or have not experienced abuse by speaking the truth of God’s love and care for their body. She also teaches children how to prevent abuse by giving them the tools to know the difference between a healthy relationship and unhealthy relationships.

Writing from a Biblical perspective, yet incredibly gentle and simple, Reina Davison gives hope and guidance that exposes the darkness and sin of the enemy lurking in our lives. These people are unsafe and “No Touch” people as Reina explains. Her premise teaches children the principle of becoming “Overcomers” in Christ Jesus. This is a fantastic book that teaches wonderful and enlightening spiritual truths to children. (Note: This book just may encourage adults as well; teaching them that they are overcomers!) I personally enjoyed the uplifting truths to her book and thought…I wish I had a book such as this when I was a child. You will be delighted by this book as well.

As a guidebook, this book teaches parents, caregivers, family members, etc., to understand what safe behavior is in and out of the home. Her Body Safety guide in the back provides a checklist for adults to adhere to in protecting children. With beautiful illustrations, the author sheds light on walking in the truth of God’s Word, while giving them instruction of their enemy (the devil), the Bible, and Jesus, offering hope and encouragement to look to Jesus as their help and Savior. Her book shows that God has a good plan for them and cares for them. She shares that they are Overcomers and can defeat the enemy (the devil) and that because of Jesus, they too can choose to be of Good Cheer (be happy). 

This book comes highly recommended for all children who need to be taught encouraging truths about God’s Word, and especially is a tool to be used by parents, counselors, pastors, child psychologists, medical personnel, and lay persons to teach about healthy sexual boundaries.  

To tell you the truth, this is one of those books parents should utilize in teaching their children about bad people that sin and touch inappropriately. She has given a list of resources in the back of the book, and is an advocate of ending child sexual abuse. Written with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity to children’s pure intellects, this book does a wonderful job in tackling a difficult subject.

“Thank you, Reina Davison, for your work to protect the vulnerable children of the world!” ~ CBM Christian Book Reviews.

Encounters With Legendary Golfers

Here is a wonderful book for those who love the game of golf, some history about some of golf's greatest players and the God of the Bible. ~ CBM 

Go With ... God, Hogan, and The Hybrid

Go with God, Hogan, and The Hybrid is J. Michael Meadows' first book and showcases his life experiences in the context of stories, truths, and wisdom related to golf and the role it has played in his life.  

The Hybrid is the most important addition to your life and to your game. "God is not who we think He is, but who He reveals Himself to be in the Bible" and "God has a plan for each one of us. Therefore, it is important that we make sure our belief system about God is rooted in God's revelation of himself and not on human speculation about God".

This Book is filled with dozens of stories of golf's greats―Hogan, Trevino, Palmer, Floyd and many others―who have crossed paths with Meadows as he's traveled and played life's fairways. Go with God… is humorous, nostalgic, insightful, and empowering. 

The author, who has escorted hundreds of golfers to Scotland and Ireland with his Golf in the Kingdom tour and golf travel company, shares numerous insights from a lifetime in business and golf. Readers will enjoy and come to embrace his Southern style (and -isms), as well as the family, faith, and systematic foundations upon which he has built a rich and rewarding life. Whether it's stories about Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and their impact on the game of golf, Meadows' founding The U.S. Screen Door Open Golf Championship, corporate life with IBM, Xerox, and Exxon, and life as an entrepreneur, readers will be engaged and entertained.

Meadows shares personal successes and failures as well as some truths of mental attitude dynamics and spirituality that have sustained him as he's traveled the fairways of life. He calls it "living a normal life... in an extraordinary way". Everyone knows something about God but to know God is impossible apart from The Word of God, The Mind of Christ through the perception and application of Bible Doctrine from Christ, THE PERFECT HYBRID.

J. Michael Meadows is an avid, low-handicap golfer, a member of Phoenix Country Club in Phoenix, Arizona and The St. Andrews Golf Club in Scotland. Golf and business have taken him around the world and were the foundations for his encounters with legendary golfers like Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and many others. Go with God, Hogan, and The Hybrid is Meadows’ first book and, in a style all his own, he shares the truths and wisdom of the experiences that have shaped his life.

Intent on keeping the relationship just as a friendly one, JD tells himself; although he can’t get over the peace that emanates from her presence. JD finds Joella and her feminine beauty to be irresistible, even though the constant scolding from his father to “get a new perspective” on life, makes him wonder if Joella could ever be the right choice.  He longs for that peace that Joella possesses, and consequently realizes that a person can’t fill the deep void inside. 

Joella, a interior designer, brings delight to the novel as a young at heart church girl, presenting the charm of a budding romance, this novel keeps readers glued to the pages.  I was constantly wonder what the next page would bring.

As time passes and sparks fly, there are decisions to make and expectations each character has, especially for JD. His strict religious upbringing has taught him not to be interested in anyone outside of his church. Yet, he can’t deny his interest in Joella.  As this budding romance develops with some twists and turns, the author has coupled the scenes with an idyllic setting of family, home and country charm. 

June Foster captures emotions and brings surprise encounters into a well-developed inspirational themed book blended with the romance of true love.

Learn To Become An Overcomer

Simply put, this book is a blessing! Pathway to Promise: Learning to Overcome by James Brunetto is an amazing short and easy-to-understand ten chapter lesson guide designed to help one learn to move forward when one has become stuck, disillusioned, disappointed, etc. in their God-given mandate that seems to be more of an impossibility.

Written by a pastor with much life experience and wisdom, he gives readers the tools and Biblical teaching that makes being a powerful person of faith and learning to be an overcomer attainable. 

The author explains that waiting for the promises are not what one is to do, but running after them and moving forward, is the only way to learn to overcome. This book will change and transform your life that brings eternal rewards. He encourages all Christians that each person has a life mission and God-given mandate, yet so many give up when difficulties come. His word to you in this book is…Learn how to overcome and make the promises of God a reality in your life!”

Encapsulated within the 10 short chapters, the author presents a “pathway to the promises” that will renovate readers’ thinking (and doing). He states that so many have given up, settled for “complacency and mediocrity”. His book offers new hope and a new life to the promises of God with such valuable chapters as: Learn to Overcome, Value the Valley, Develop a Breakthrough Attitude, Build Momentum, Learn to Engage, Learn to Move in Power, Be a Person of Faith, Be a Person of Prayer, Be a Person of the Spirit, Be a Person of Sacrifice. Readers will find this book to be a catalyst to lift them out of their struggles, enemy attacks, and disappointment that also ushers in fresh vision, focus, encouragement and hope that lead to mission and ministry coming into fruition.

I cannot recommend this book enough! Aspects of prayer, faith, and holiness shed light on a surprising read that includes such powerful lessons, insights and treasures from the Bible. He teaches from experience and assists readers to help them grab onto God, gain momentum in God’s ways and His promises. Hope and faith come alive. Such Biblical heroes bring great hope and faith, such as: David, Apostle Paul, the Disciples, all springing forth from the ministry of Jesus.  

Throughout his book, the author has given the roadmap to “failure is not an option.” And within such, revealing the nature of Satan and his temptations, as a mere twisting of the truth…bringing in deception. He makes an eye-opening statement in the later chapter, “Every temptation is Satan’s invitation to do things your own way instead of God’s way.” This is an incredible statement for those who would be willing to apply understanding. Within that, he offers snapshots and a chapter in the book revealing the enemy’s tactics as the “Tempter” and “Accuser of the Brethren” that showcase classic strategies of Satan, unveiling examples of compromise that are written in the Bible, so that readers can glean from these important lessons. Highlighting holiness, hope and faith are crucial elements that promote walking by the Spirit, make this a valuable and informative without complicating the matter.

This author offers truth from a Biblical perspective to propel readers into their God-given mission. 

This is an incredibly timely and well-written book that shares such valuable teachings and comes highly recommended for all Christians, whether a new or mature believer. Thank you Pastor Brunetto for sharing this insight and offering a Pathway to Promise!

By: Paul Schulz
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Eve, The Second Creation by Paul Schulz reveals Scripture pertaining to the Fall of Adam and Eve that uncovers a false premise that has been long taught. Many have been taught a compromised and skewed truth. The author endeavors through much Scripture to teach the truth as pertaining to the Word, mainly focusing on Genesis and the fall of man that combines other facets of the Kingdom of light and that of Satan’s influence upon mankind that makes for an unbelievable read. 

Led by the truth of Scriptures and the Holy Spirit, the author has penned this book that will surely become an eye-opener for many, offering solid scriptural reasons behind the fall, sin, Satan’s nature of deception and God’s character… all revealing God’s absolute goodness. Reading this book brings great insight into Satan’s deception and sheds light on the truth of God’s Word.

Each chapter unfolds with intrigue and truth of the Scriptures with such chapters as: Genesis, The Serpent is No Friend, The Gospel Begins in Genesis, Our Citizenship is in Heaven, Only the Word Could Overcome the Serpent, Eve, The Second Creation, Satan, The God of Confusion, Spells of the Serpent, Adam’s First Sin, Three Trees, Two Gardens, The Lie of Guilt & Why We are Born.  

Readers will come away understanding their purpose, God’s Holy nature as well as His goodness, coupled with deep insight into Satan’s deceptive tactics and the war in the spiritual realm.

This book comes highly recommended for those who search for truth according to the Scriptures: Pastors, teachers, lay Christian counselors, to include mature and new believers alike.

This book would be an excellent read for study groups, small group classes and Christian book clubs that like to dig deeper into the Word.

Coupled with wonderful quotes and sprinkled with some scripture verses, this book is well-done, speaks frankly and is not an overly “preachy” autobiography. She reaches out to others in a unique way through “Reflections” at the end of each chapter. In this way, she shares her own insight from past events, the benefits from hindsight, and concludes with discussion questions for the reader as an opportunity to increase in their own growth and maturity.

Abba's Sanctuary book l and 2 are stories the Father wanted me to write to show people how he will bring not only people in your life to help but also his creations to protect, nurture, and give knowledge to children what he has created and how each creation has a place in the world which are important to him. I had no idea that this would happen to me, the children, and staff. We were surprised at each one, and we did our best to care for each one as they came to us. There is love in each story, and I hope you can feel what I felt as each creature came forth. Giving facts to children is important for their development and letting them know how wonderfully rich we are to have the opportunity to understand and watch his creations, though living in the wild, be a part of our lives up close.

Sons of God: A Discourse on the Christian Revolution

Title: The Sons of God:
A Discourse on the Christian Revolution
By: Anthony Marnell
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0+ stars

The Sons of God: A Discourse on the Christian Revolution by Anthony Marnell presents a book that is full of holiness and indignation at the same time. His book represents a two-fold manifesto of the revealing of the last 3 Trumpets (the last three woe’s) in the Book of Revelation and a call for repentance to all who do not follow Christ.

His first chapter “A Tale of Two Cities” speaks to those who are of the world (Babylon) and those who have been called out of the world, yet still exist in the world as followers of Christ. These two cities (or two groups of people) face choices that have consequences for eternity, but also in the near future. He further states that we are living in the Book of Revelation right now and that the Book of Revelation is not some time in the future but unfolding before our very eyes. With this in mind, his book offers somewhat of a discourse on the upcoming Christian revolution with exciting prophecy revealed as the 3 woe’s. An invitation is given as well to come into the Kingdom, to know Christ, to save yourself from the coming wrath of the Lord upon the entire Earth, so that you may be spared eternal damnation and the full wrath of God.

His book packs punch after punch! The author does not hold back in professing righteousness, calling evil for what it is and naming erroneous and egregious sins that have overtaken many, to include prevalence in our Western society. Issues such as gay marriage, homosexuality, abortion, murder, fornication, adultery, atheism, along with the culture of violence, war and murder that is so commonplace, shedding light that God Almighty does not delight in any of these abominations. Further mentioning idols such as entertainment and media, the love of money, selfish pride, celebrity fanfare and glory, only to reveal the rightful place of women and men among society paints a grim picture of today’s society. Yet, there is hope; that hope is found in the forgiveness of sins through salvation a proclamation of Jesus Christ as one’s Lord and Savior. Hope is found in following Jesus, choosing faith and learning to endure to the end. He gives strategies, scripture verses and instruction on becoming strong in faith and knowledge so that one will be able to stand until the end and persevere. He gives strong warnings that the faint at heart will not survive.

This book represents a wake-up call to all (including Christians and the complacent) who are of this world to make a choice: Are you for Jesus or against Him? He exhorts all to take a stand now for Christ and speaks of the times we are living in to be the End Times and that the great End Time Harvest is soon to come with the Great Tribulation. He calls all to make a choice for their own eternity and implores all who don’t believe or who are in sin to repent.

Yet, he ends his discourse with an end of speaking to those who will not give their hearts to Jesus fully and shifts his attention to the Bride of Christ, to encourage, refine, teach and to prepare them for what is coming up ahead.

The author does not wish to entertain readers but to prepare, educate and save them spiritually so they can escape what is to come upon the entire Earth. This book is not for those that wish to live in a fairy-tale like world that they create for themselves…it is for those who choose life in Jesus Christ instead of the death of sin and living according to the world’s desires.

Doomed Christianity & The Unshakable Lifeline

Title: Doomed Christianity &
The Unshakable Lifeline: 
Grace is Not Undeserved Favor, But …
By: Dr. Danson E. Ubebe
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0

Doomed Christianity & The Unshakable Life Line: Grace is Not Undeserved Favor, Butrefers to a book written to expose the difference between what has become modern-day Christianity with what the Scripture says Christianity actually is.

Christianity today has become what can God do for me, instead of what I am to do for God. Pursuing godly purposes has now been intertwined with the pursuit of wealth, security and a way to eternal life that the Scriptures do not preach.

Dr. Danson Ubebe refers to the first century Christians that only preached Christ crucified and recognized Jesus as the Shepherd who came to fulfill the Prophets and the Law. Somehow, Old Testament and New Testament teachings have now been woven together such as, “the chair of Moses, tithing, fasting from abstinence from food, and other traditions of the Law,” per the author. In this book, the author presents Scripture’s perspective vs. man’s perspective, offering the truth vs. a variation of truth. Dr. Danson E. Ubebe asks readers to choose for themselves after reading Scripture, as referred to in Deuteronomy 30:19, “…therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendants may live,” asking a poignant question, what is the truth? Therefore, readers can delve into this book to find truth, read the Bible for themselves and discover the teachings on eternal life, salvation and the way of truth.

Readers might ask themselves, what is the way of truth? As the author points out, the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is the way of truth. One would have to read what the Bible speaks on these matters to become more Christ-like and as such, the author provides a format for the building of Christ-like character that includes “holiness”. Specifically mentioning the role of the Holy Spirit as “the anointing,” the author concisely takes the readers through Biblical discourse back to the beginning of creation, Adam and Eve, the Fall of man, and God’s purpose for creating man, helping readers understand the brevity of the matter and the inerrant spoken Word of God as eternal. All want eternal life, but there is only one way, as the Scriptures will prove what is acceptable according to Scripture versus man’s opinion.

As noted, the role of the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture and lack of knowledge of Scripture has left a void, even a vacuum that some may explain as a giant pit, and a dark hole which from there is no return.

Within this book, he urges all to become a “student” of the Word and to look into the Bible for themselves to find truth. His teachings are Biblically sound and this book tells the truth that today’s Christian preachers, pastors and those who teach the Bible have made Christianity a huge platform for their own enterprise. (This attitude does not pertain to every person preaching, but involves a large share of those that might use His Gospel for their own profit.) This is not what Jesus preached in His Gospel and not what He intended. The Gospel is not a get rich scheme.

This book comes highly recommended for those willing to search deeper and wider to find true understanding  of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. A great read for all Christians, whether new or mature alike, as it contains solid Biblical teaching, not derived from man’s opinion, but offers a Biblical foundation from Scripture.

A highly recommended read for all that are searching for truth!
