Explanation of the Book:

“I should be dead. Buried in an unmarked grave in Romania. Obviously, I am not. God had other plans.” At just under five feet tall, Virginia Prodan was no match for the towering 6' 10" gun-wielding assassin the Romanian government sent to her office to take her life. It was not the first time her life had been threatened—nor would it be the last. As a young attorney under Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal communist regime, Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth. When she finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, Virginia accepted the divine call to defend fellow followers of Christ against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land. For this act of treason, she was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, placed under house arrest, and came within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself. How Virginia not only managed to elude her enemies time and again, but how she also helped expose the appalling secret that would ultimately lead to the demise of Ceausescu’s evil empire is one of the most extraordinary stories ever told. A must-read for all generations, Saving My Assassin is the unforgettable account of one woman’s search for truth, her defiance in the face of evil, and a surprise encounter that proves without a shadow of a doubt that nothing is impossible with God.

Explanation of the Book:

Franklyn was born into a gritty north of England town. His expected path through life would have him live out his years in the manner of that town’s baseline existence. But it wasn’t to be. Perhaps he was pre-selected to break rank so that bigger dreams could be fulfilled. Whatever the prime force may have been, he was to know a different life. Perhaps, too, the corridors of our own reality are flimsier than we believe! On the other side of the wall may lie another path. As Franklyn himself discovers, a perceived reality can be as real as reality itself.

Explanation of the Book:

As though an oracle had come to me, so also was the urge to write my story. I became aware that the nature of writing involved shall require some research into pre-historic African societies, with a view to relate to the towns and villages of Igboland and the Niger-Delta where my story took its root, even prior to my existence. Yet, the timing of this desire to write was such that peace seemed to have eluded me; following some set-backs which I described in the third part of my trilogy and parts of the post-script that followed. Whilst taking stock of my past and present condition in relation to my surroundings, the investigator soon became the investigated, prompting me to skip through pertinent aspects, episodes and narratives, in my quest to publish my first book seven years prior. In particular, the Afro-centric narratives contained in this story of our common humanity had to be told in a way that the author can be detached from the story, despite being the primary subject of investigation. As such, it became necessary to delve into some historical anecdotes, whilst also bringing to life the experience of living in Abayi, Aba; on a street called Shalom Road.

Explanation of the Book:

Just as Jesus shows us the character of God, diving deeper into the events surrounding his birth gives us a better understanding of that character.

Sending Jesus was always God's plan, and there is something for us to learn in every detail surrounding his birth. Christmas Speaks is a simple yet perceptive devotional that's broken down into easily understood segments that weave together scripture and insight, giving the reader a deeper understanding of the vast love God has for us and how we should respond to that love. Each chapter examines a different aspect of the Christmas narrative. As we come to better know the people central to this story, we can begin to apply aspects of their character to our own lives for a more meaningful relationship with God. By coming to a deeper understanding of scripture, we can see how God speaks to the world-if we have ears to listen. Reflect on the words within these pages, and receive what the Holy Spirit has for you.

Explanation of the Book:

Documenting Danny Marianino's days as a metalhead from childhood into adulthood, Don't Ever Punch a Rockstar somehow rationalizes playing in a few hardcore/punk bands, touring, fighting, drinking, internet bullying, celebrity encounters, satanic curses, house fires, harassment and collecting an immeasurable amount of hate mail from some of the most illiterate human beings the world has to offer. Though Oprah will never add this into her book club, it's still a good lesson in accepting the negative with a laugh and gaining a new sense of temperance and humility. At the very least I will entertain you with a campy memoir and a detailed eye-opening account of the chaos that followed the infamous event that VH1 called one of the Most Shocking Moments in Rock and Roll. This is by no means the same old autobiography that you have read before. Don't Ever Punch a Rockstar combine elements of Get in The Van, Emails from and Asshole and Shit My Dad Says all in one hot mess of a story. Praise for the book - "Danny Marianino's Never Punch A Rockstar is a sock in the jaw to punk/metal scene conformity, and it hurts so good! Final score: North Side Kings 2, Danzig, 0." - STEVEN BLUSH, author/filmmaker, American Hardcore "As trenchant, sometimes funny, insightful and shocking as a punch in the face. WHICH is incidentally what started this whole ball rolling. A pretty potent look into the power of image and the punching of the face of arguably a legend of, well, face punching, Glenn Danzig, and the ensuing firestorm that followed. I'd give it 5 black eyes." -- EUGENE S. ROBINSON, singer for Oxbow & author of FIGHT: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass Kicking But Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked For Asking "With Don't Ever Punch a Rock Star author Danny Marianino has written an entertaining, humorous and humble autobiography. The often times laugh-out-loud recollections of Danny's life up to and following the infamous run-in with the drama-queen of dark metal is more than engaging and, with the inclusion of hate mail, zany rumors, message board threats and internet tough guys, you're sure to get a good giggle while learning what truly transpired that fateful night in Tuba City." - DUSTIN LAVALLEY, author of Spinner "As we have always said on the streets of NY - don't start none -there wont be none - and if you do, at least keep your hands up and guard your grill. Way to K.O. rock star attitudes Danny Boy!" - John Joseph author of The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon and Meat is For Pussies

Explanation of the Book:

The Ambassador of God provides exhaustive and in-depth answers to very difficult questions about our cosmic origin and the planet earth. Almost everything to do with the Sun, Moon, Stars, Water, Mars, Jupiter, Aliens... and most importantly - God About the book and author _____________________ God is real. And for the first time, experimental and observable science reveals his existence. Throughout history, many have argued the existence of God, yet discussions of the Divine have been limited to the realm of philosophy and religion. But what if nature could reveal its creator? And what if science could provide compelling evidences that we have never seen before? What if the identity of the creator behind the origin of our universe can be known for certain? What if... This is what The Ambassador of God, a ground breaking look at our cosmic origin, has provided. In this probing book, difficult questions are answered. As renowned scientists and thinkers challenge the biblical narratives for our cosmic origin, The Ambassador of God uncovers the mysteries that have been hidden from human eyes. Using compelling evidences from astronomy to investigate the underpinnings of the Bible, The Ambassador of God provides a 'cosmic objective certainty' for the existence of a universal Creator. Additionally, it unveils a well of exhaustive insights that eliminates ambiguities in our understanding. How is it possible that God is one and three distinct persons, but not three Gods? Why is the earth and the human body mostly water? Who created the sun, moon and stars? What about aliens and the other solar planets? What is the mystery and purpose behind human existence and other life forms on our planet earth? Why are we here and how did we first arrive on this planet? How do we come to understand divinity in the current scheme of scientific reasoning? How do we make peace with the grand designer behind it all? Readers seeking answers to these questions (and other similar questions) will find them here. They will not find dogma. Instead, they will embark on a journey-an experimental voyage through the lens of science that reveals the mind of God. In a "show" rather than "tell" fashion and a template that's more coherent than any prevailing secular science view, we shall find who God is! Who is the Author? Olumide Sanya is a contemporary poet and writer. Beside poetry and writing, Lumi, as he is affectionately known, helps others to achieve their dreams as a life coach. Unusually drawn to books between the ages of 4 - 9, Lumi neither enjoyed reading nor read books but spent his childhood years looking for abandoned tomes that he turned into a formidable collection. Despite being a non-reader, he realised the dream of becoming a writer in his tender years and for more than 12 years, he abandoned this dream. ...Until one day, God paid him a visit. But it didn't start there, it began with falling in love and writing poems about love and heartbreaks but that's another story for another year. "God has a sense of humor," says Lumi. "It's not hard to see that if you know my story-where I've been, where I'm at, and what God has planned for my tomorrow. What is most important to recognize is what God can do with a 'nobody' like me." The Ambassador of God, he notes, is not just about answers to large existential questions "It is also a road map that offers optimism and guidance in today's confused and increasingly complex modern world." You don't have to be a physics professor or a philosopher to understand Sanya's work. The Ambassador of God aims to open discussion and understanding at the broadest possible level. It is written for everyday people.
