People write books. They write books lifting up issues that they believe are vitally important for living a successful Christian life. The problem is: writers of the New Testament Epistles like Paul, Peter, James and John never mention these matters. How can something be so important to some modern-day writers and not even be mentioned in the Epistles? This is a book about exhortations, commandments and admonitions. It is a matter of what is actually exhorted in the Epistles and what is not. It is the writer’s hope that people will find freedom and peace with regard to the several matters exhaustively considered in these pages, matters such as exorcism of demons, fasting, and Sabbath keeping. Bottom line truth is to be found in the New Testament Epistles with regard to instruction for living the normal Christian life.
Queen is the author of Its Not About Religion, God Wants A Relationship and From My Heart to Yours. As in all Queens books, they are a collection of poems to encourage the reader to not just see themselves as a Christian or being religious, but to know they have a covenant relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. When you are in a covenant relationship, things can't just come in to break that covenant. No one person is perfect, so you will make mistakes and/or bad choices. This should not disqualify you from love. The poems in this book are based off of real life situations. The author, Queen E. Lacey, wants you to know that nothing will separate you from God's love. As in Queens other books, she shared her personal life stores through An Open Book Moment. In this book those moments reflect the search for love. Unfortunately, that search took her in and out of different beds. Through her writings, Queen is very open about her life experiences. As she allows you to journey through her life, her one desire is that everyone would know that God's love outweighs any bad choices anyone may have made in life. As you read through the different poems and are able to identify yourself through them, know that you too are still loved by God and nothing can separate you from that love. Queen E. Lacey was born and raised in White Plains, N.Y. and now resides in Phoenix, AZ. Queen is currently a member of the Church of the Remnant, under the leadership of Pastors Warren H. Stewart, Jr. and Chrystal Stewart in Phoenix, AZ. There she works with the pastors aid, card ministry, prison ministry (soon to start), and any outreach going forward. At Remnant we dont wait on titles to be given, we see the need so we get to work.

Discover your Authentic Leadership. How do you become an authentic leader? How is it that some people are born natural leaders while others struggle to make the right decisions? Well, Bill George interviewed 125 great leaders and learned that they all share one thing in common: they make the right decisions based on what’s important to them. This might seem vague, so let’s explain. Each leader follows their True North or their internal compass. Your True North represents who you are as a human being, it is the fixed point that helps you stay on track as a leader. It is based on your values, your passions, and your motivations. When you follow your True North, your leadership will be authentic, and people will naturally want to associate with you and follow you. So whenever you feel overwhelmed and as if the world is spinning uncontrollably around you, following your True North can put you back on track. As you read, you’ll learn how to become self-aware, how to set your leadership and ethical boundaries, and whether or not you fall into one of the five archetypal leaders.
“This may be the most influential book you will read this year.” —Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Miracles A Movement Seeks to Redefine Christianity. Some Think that It Is a Much-Needed Progressive Reformation. Others Believe that It Is an Attack on Historic Christianity. Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She was raised in a Christian home, where she had seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship, as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor, who called himself a hopeful agnostic. Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith. After everything she had ever believed about God, Jesus, and the Bible had been picked apart, she found herself at the brink of despair . . . until God rescued her, helping her to rebuild her faith, one solid brick at a time. In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. If you or someone you love has encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity and aren’t sure how to respond, Alisa’s journey will show you how to determine—and rest in—what’s unmistakably true.
Innovation is increasingly recognized as a vitally important social and economic phenomenon worthy of serious research study. Firms are concerned about their innovation ability, particularly relative to their competitors. Politicians care about innovation, too, because of its presumed social and economic impact. However, to recognize that innovation is desirable is not sufficient. What is required is systematic and reliable knowledge about how best to influence innovation and to exploit its effects to the full. Gaining such knowledge is the aim of the field of innovation studies, which is now at least half a century old. Hence, it is an opportune time to ask what has been achieved and what we still need to know more about. This is what this book sets out to explore. Written by a number of central contributors to the field, it critically examines the current state of the art and identifies issues that merit greater attention. The focus is mainly on how society can derive the greatest benefit from innovation and what needs to done to achieve this. However, to learn more about how society can benefit more from innovation, one also needs to understand innovation processes in firms and how these interact with broader social, institutional and political factors. Such issues are therefore also central to the discussion here.
A collection of newspaper stories by award-winning Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard—including “Dirty John,” the basis for the hit podcast and the upcoming Bravo scripted series starring Connie Britton and Eric Bana. Since its release in fall 2017, the “Dirty John” podcast—about a conman who terrorizes a Southern California family—has been downloaded more than 20 million times, and will soon premiere as a scripted drama on Bravo starring Connie Britton and Eric Bana. The story, which also ran as a print series in the Los Angeles Times, wasn’t unfamiliar terrain to its writer, Christopher Goffard. Over two decades at newspapers from Florida to California, Goffard has reported probingly on the shadowy, unseen corners of society. This book gathers together for the first time “Dirty John” and the rest of his very best work. “The $40 Lawyer” provides an inside account of a young public defender’s rookie year in the legal trenches. “Framed” offers an unblinking chronicle of suburban mayhem (and is currently being developed by Netflix as a film starring Julia Roberts). A man wrongly imprisoned for rape, train-riding runaways in love, a Syrian mother forced to leave her children in order to save them, a boy who grows up to become a cop as a way of honoring his murdered sister, another boy who struggles with the knowledge that his father is on death row: these stories reveal the complexities of human nature, showing people at both their most courageous and their most flawed. Goffard shared in the Los Angeles Times’ Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2011 and has twice been a Pulitzer finalist for feature writing. This collection—a must-read for fans of both true-crime and first-rate narrative nonfiction—underscores his reputation as one of today’s most original journalistic voices.

In this book God uses the life and words of an ordinary man whos changed life as a compass in/to helping you/people find that/the narrow path to eternal life.
