Author, Leo J. Battenhausen

Today, America's most dangerous enemies are not the terrorists or those wanting to kill us. They are the unseen evil forces that have been slowly depleting us of morality, decency and value in God. Evil has taken a seat not only in our movies, media, music and schools, but in our White House.

The Evilution of America has been eroding what our Forefathers fought and suffered to create and is turning the United States into a country void of everything Godly we once stood proudly on as the greatest nation in the world.

Author, Leo J. Battenhausen, exposes the true reality of the battle between good and evil going on in America today for our souls and how politics and the media are working together with evil to gather them up in droves.

The Evilution of America is a must read for every citizen of the United States who asks the question, "What happened?" Battenhausen is a licensed psychotherapist, social commentator and syndicated radio guest as well as the author of four other books that speak to the human condition in America today.

Book Buzz presents Matthew A. Knight's The Book Of James

Highly Recommended - James was regarded by Paul as a ‘Pillar of the Church’ and certainly he became very prominent in the church of the time. James comments on Trials and temptations, favoritism, faith and works are classics. 

One of the hardest lessons to learn is to tame the tongue which can do such untold damage in a church community. With chapters on submitting to God in the matter of the taming of the tongue and the display of godly wisdom are just as relevant in the church today. Those of the church members who are wealthy also should pay heed to James comments. 

Matthew A. Knight has written this book with the commentaries on each chapter in the hope that all who read it might learn and having learned might apply it to their own situation in the church they find themselves in. Especially, James’ comments are helpful for the leadership of the church.

God Cares for Me in Every Season: Godly Insights for Singleness, Marriage, and Divorce by Agnes Amos-Coleman sets the stage to choose life according to God’s ways in every season of life, whether single, married, or divorced. 

Her book is organized in three sections pertaining to each season: single, married, or divorced. She speaks to Christians globally and to non-Christians, and links the eroding moral values of our times, (backed up by Gallop Poll Statistics).

Offering answers as to the reasons for certain seasons, each section is designed to offer godly foundations that produce the fruits of the Spirit. Intended to present understanding of God’s care during all seasons, God’s plan is that one will produce fruit in their lives. With keen insight and Biblical wisdom, the author sheds light through God’s Word, presenting an easy, three-pronged approach, giving hope for each season of life.

Developed through the teaching of the nine fruits of the Spirit, the author writes from a place of personal experience that brings inspiration and the blending of Christian principles and scripture verses that enhance one’s season in life. Each particular season is covered in three distinct sections to glean from, making for an easy read. The organization of the book presents a palatable format that asks your current season, (single, married, or divorced), presents life-lessons learned from these seasons, and presents to readers scripture affirmations for this particular season in their lives.

In the end, the author brings readers to a glorious conclusion, offering a steadfast hope in following the Lord in all His ways. Additionally, a type of a glossary is given presenting one scripture verse that best defines such terms as: love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, grace, forgiveness, obedience, blessing, encouragement, unity, Holy Spirit, praise, thankful, trust, waling in the Spirit, and offers a salvation prayer as well.

New Release - Diamonds in the Dust: The Story of a Compassionate Woman in Northeast India by Steven Ritland and Sentikumla Ao reflects the missionary work of Sentikumla Ao. 

Mrs. Ao's grandfather worked with the famous Rev. Edwin Clark, whose missionary work in the early 1900's to the Nagas created the only state in India where Christians form 90% of the population. Her biography presents her work that continued his work and was God’s call on her life. Revealing God’s love for the unwanted, the broken and the addicts in the farthest remote region of India – a separate state known as Nagaland. Sentikumla's ministry focuses on rehabilitating victims of drugs, alcohol and HIV/AIDS, overflowing from Nagaland into the neighboring state of India, Assam. By God’s grace in action and the “unrelenting” love of God, this book reveals a completely surrendered life of serving God selflessly.

Reflecting the heart of God, seeking the lost and those outcasts the world rejects, this book is a tribute to God, to missionary work and to those who completely yield their life to whole-heartedly serving the Lord – no matter the cost. You will see in this biography the Word of God come to life. Make no mistake, there is sacrifice and pain, but the joy, the peace, and the rewards outweigh all that are available on Earth.  If you are thinking about living a transformed life or missionary work, this is a book that portrays the grace of God in such a unique way. Sharing her life story, the missionary, Sentikumla and Steven Ritland have put together this book along with photos that will certainly make an impact on one’s life.

As one Spirit and faith-filled believer, this mighty woman and missionary is used by God as the hands and feet of Jesus. Through her work, caring for the poor addicts, much fruit has been borne and God is revealed, displaying that He can work mightily through one person that is dedicated completely to Him. This is an inspirational work that shows just how far God’s love can reach, that His arm is never too short, and it is only pure joy to yield to God, as this one missionary has. Her ministry has produced much fruit within the community, churches and governments. The tide has changed in the way drug addicts are now treated (in some parts of India) and they now have hope and a place to go.

If you would like to get involved with the support of these programs for the youth, her contact information is provided. Her ministry is a worthwhile ministry, “. . . saving that which is lost.” AMAZING!

Thank God for the Rainbow!

A Book of Hope

Living Through Troubled Times: Witnessing the Rainbow is an Inspirational Journey by Dianne Tolliver.  It captures the true-life testimonies of twenty-one individuals and the storms, tribulations, and heartbreaks they endured. 

Through God’s triumphant care to find new beginnings for these people, the author records God’s faithfulness as He carried these individuals through their storms to reveal God’s rainbow of hope.  

Her book begins with a miraculous intervention by God that saved her from a terrible car accident and death, not once, but twice in a matter of minutes. Inspired by our Heavenly Father, His Word, and promises, the author was compelled to write this book for the empowerment of others. The book shares the heart of God.  

It reveals how each person learned to overcome their challenges through their faith, remembering that God is a shield to those who put their trust in Him (Paraphrase of Psalm 91:4). Offering hope as we see His promises fulfilled through a wide-array of individual stories, her book sheds light on God’s grace which offers wisdom, inspiration, and hope in a troubled world.

Providing insight into Scripture, and His promises, these endearing testimonies relate the emotions and reactions to trauma while revealing how hope in God carried them through tough times. These strong testimonies will bring tears to your eyes as you watch our Heavenly Father in action. He provided for, cared for, and brought what each person needed.  With this in mind, this book shares powerful reflection tools for learning to trust God and helps readers overcome despite adversity in their own lives.

Living Through Troubled Times: Witnessing the Rainbow will resonate as we live in perilous times. Life is not without tribulation. Many have faced overwhelming circumstances with layoffs, financial challenges, sicknesses, near-death experiences, loss of loved ones, and troubling events. This book provides powerful, true testimonies that will encourage the body of Christ.  It also reaches out to those who need to turn to God, not only for their salvation but also as protection for their daily lives.

A Fast Paced Highly Recommended Fiction Novel

Fiction at it's best - World War S: The Silence Begins (Book 1) and The Servants of the Dragon (Book 2) by Stephen Paul Thomas combine elements of a science fiction thriller novel with a religious twist that is an intense page turner ~ CBM Christian Book Reviews.

Set sometime in the near future, the world has become a place of darkness. On the edge of economic and social collapse, key elements of society have changed: no Christianity allowed and the pursuit of seeking the divine through other means is elevated to a worldwide phenomenon. Seeking diviners and fortunetellers offer an escape for those upon the Earth, an escape tailored to meet their fleshly desires, leading them away from truth and into deception.

Two key characters, Josh and Julie, are the mainstay characters, along with other side events simultaneously occurring. Josh is a lighthearted boy with an amazing prophetic and revelatory ability. Julie is an ER doctor and physiologist whose focus has become more of an experiment to understand the nature of her clients’ Near Death Experiences (NDE). Her inquires are rooted in explaining the connection of the mind, soul and afterworld upon the cessation of life.

Heart pounding, riveting, and full of suspense, this novel is fast-paced and although a fiction novel, the scenarios depicted seem to be a plausible future considering world events, i.e., persecution of the Saints and a false religion that explodes. What would the world look like without the truth of God’s Word? Being a Christian is outlawed and it seems the world is on the edge of collapse. The author paints a vivid picture that blends elements of science fiction, demonic entanglement and the spiritual world that shed light into World War S.

Intriguing, this spiritual world war sounds vaguely familiar - What if the world was really like this?  And we are already living in this time or on the brink of total economic and social collapse, which brings such deception, demonic oppression and anarchy? All questions you can explore within this “brutally good,” “The reality of the demonic,” “Prophetic,” and “Genious” book.

The Twelve Tribes of Israel, The Ten Commandments, the Feasts and Festival

An Overview of the Bible ~ From Alpha to Omega by Stanley D. Rasberry offers to readers a “short handbook of the Bible” to assist readers in understanding the Bible, from beginning to end. 

Rightly named, From Alpha to Omega, (in Greek meaning “the beginning” and “the end”) the author begins with the book of Genesis through the book of Revelation, 66 books covered in all. 

Grouped into 15 separate sections and a List of Tables, the author has made the Bible easy to understand. His purpose is to help readers know time periods, meanings and messages, the authors of the relevant sections and how this intertwines with us today in this modern-day age. 

Readers will come to understand the Bible as a book of prophecy that has told the beginning and the end of the human race, giving instructions on how to live, the origin of sin, man and the many centuries that have passed since the beginning of time. The author states, “With it in hand, the reader can see the Bible with fresh eyes.”(p.v).

This is a must-read and complimentary to anyone wanting to understand the meaning of life, their purpose with focus on The Old and New Covenants, the Gospels, Jesus, and God’s divine plans for humanity and the future End Time scenario. 

With such sections as: Alpha: Jesus and the Eons, Two Men: Job and Mel, Chosen People, Escape from Egypt, Covenants, Laws and Sacrifices, Promised Land, Three Kings, Wisdom and Songs, Six Empires, Two Captivities, One Restoration, The Gospels, The New Church, Instructions to the Growing Church, Omega: The Revelation of Jesus, with discussions on the Early Church years and study group sessions, the author has given a complete overview. Additional Tables give valuable information such as: The Twelve Tribes of Israel, The Ten Commandments, the Feasts and Festivals, The Judges, Psalms Themes, Abbreviated Timelines, The Kings after Solomon, and so much more that add to the scope of the book.

With the inclusion of the original Greek in sections the author begins with Scripture and introduces succinctly and concisely each historical event in the corresponding book of the Bible. Suggested reading is to read each section. Then, if desired, read the referenced Bible material covered in the Bible (i.e., Genesis, and so on). Designed for the mature and new Christian alike, this handbook is an excellent resource that makes understanding the Bible, easy, convenient and fascinating.

Highly, highly recommended for all Christians, pastors, Bible instructors, lay teachers and counselors, Bible study groups or individuals seeking to better understand the Bible and God’s divine blueprint for planet Earth and all of humanity. Condensed and concise (only 222 pages), this book would also be a good book for professors to add to their list of required reading in Bible schools and degree programs.
