As the subtitle says, the book is a critique of denominational church doctrines. It is an objective writing as I, the author, have made every attempt to keep personal biases and subjective thinking out of the writing. It deals with denominational churches as to what's right in their doctrines and what's wrong. As mentioned, 100% of all church doctrines do not line up with the scriptures. Some churches come close, but no cigar. Others are so far out that I cannot fathom why they are called Christian Churches. The book discusses a host of contemporary topics which the Bible mentions in detail. In addition to man-made traditions of all the churches, the book tackles taboo topics in the church world such as abortion, alcoholism, smoking, drugs, gambling, homosexuality, infant baptism, Jehovah\'s Witnesses, Mormons, Islam, Agnosticism, Atheism, Women in the Church, Divorce, Interfaith Services, The Tribulation, Tithing, 666, Welfare, Social Security Disability and paid salaries for the clergy. The book has mostly scriptural references but some non-scriptural references too. All statements are supported with a Biblical verse(s) or occasionally, with an article or a personal reference. The Biblical references are from the King James Version, the New International Version, or sometimes paraphrased. The book flows easily as I used $1.98 words rather than $100.00 words. It is written so that the average 12 year old will understand it. Although I mention particular denominations, I never mention the names of churches or the names of people who were involved in the various scenes of the book. The book is an educational and enlightening tool for pastors' sermons, Bible studies, and Sunday School Classes. The book's one endeavor is to reveal the truth about Christianity. I don't understand why someone else didn't write this book decades ago. This book reveals to the readers that their churches and church leaders are not what they claim to be. In the book, there are some interesting and humorous anecdotes about situations which help to get a point across. They are lessons learned. This book is meant for Christian readers as well as non-believers and for those who are on the fence. This book will cause one to think and perhaps, reevaluate his or her position on God, salvation, and what is next after he or she departs this world.

How will you respond when your child makes a decision you don't agree with? Parents and kids will never agree on everything but what can mom and dad do when that decision--whether a matter of preference, spirituality, or morality--is something they think is totally wrong? Author and speaker Brenda Garrison knows all too well that how parents respond will either build a wall or a bridge between them and their child. Brenda and her husband were forced to answer this question when their oldest daughter Katie abruptly moved out of the house with no means of support. It was not an illegal or immoral decision, but it was one that wasn't good for her. Their determination to keep an open door of communication is documented not only by their story, but by comments from Katie in each chapter as she offers insights from her own perspective. Also included are other family scenarios--everything from matters of preference to foolish, immoral, and even illegal decisions--as well as insights into different styles of parenting such as servant, checked-out, gotcha, scared, and controlling parents. With practical tips and relatable stories, Brenda shares how to model God's parenting style and explains the difference between the parent's responsibilities and the child's, then helps mom and dad discover ways to develop and nurture a relationship with their child that will last a lifetime.

Fasting. Solitude. Contemplative prayer. Lectio divina. Have you heard about these practices and wanted to try them? Have you wandered from one practice to another not sure quite what to do? Are you overwhelmed by all the to-dos of your spiritual life? We have good desires—for a more intimate prayer life, perhaps, or deeper insight from God's Word—but we don't know how to get there. So we give up our pursuit, tired from wandering aimlessly, and end up feeling guilty and more distant from God instead of closer. In the Spiritual Disciplines Handbook Adele Calhoun gives us directions for our journey toward intimacy with Christ. While the word discipline may make us want to run and hide, the author shows how desires and discipline work together to lead us to the transformation we're longing for—the transformation only Christ can bring. Instead of just giving information about spiritual disciplines, this Handbook is full of practical, accessible guidance that helps you actually do them. Mothers, fathers, plumbers, nurses, students—we're all on a journey. And spiritual disciplines are for all of us who desire to know Christ deeply and be like him. Here is direction for our desire, leading us to the ultimate destination: more of Christ himself.

An "expert in the law" once asked Jesus what he must do to inherit eternal life--and his question initiated a very interesting conversation. The Law says to "love your neighbor as yourself," Jesus pointed out, so the next logical question is, "Who is my neighbor?" Rather than offering an exhaustive list of neighbors and non-neighbors, Jesus told a story . . . the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Out of that famous parable, Dr. Wayne Gordon draws more than forty characteristics of the man who was beaten, robbed, and left for dead on the road to Jericho--the character Jesus created to show Christians how to recognize their neighbors. Dr. Gordon brings that character vividly to life in Who Is My Neighbor?, and helps readers use Jesus' parable as a reference point for their interactions in their community and the world. And as readers catch Jesus' vision of neighborliness, they will also find practical suggestions for meeting needs and changing the lives of those around them . . . that is, their neighbors!
