Love Wins Book Review:

Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"? Troubling questions—so troubling that many have lost their faith because of them. Others only whisper the questions to themselves, fearing or being taught that they might lose their faith and their church if they ask them out loud. But what if these questions trouble us for good reason? What if the story of heaven and hell we have been taught is not, in fact, what the Bible teaches? What if what Jesus meant by heaven, hell, and salvation are very different from how we have come to understand them? What if it is God who wants us to face these questions? Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance. The result is the discovery that the "good news" is much, much better than we ever imagined. Love wins.

In the Hell of the Eastern Front Book Review:

A Nazi infantryman recalls the horrors of combat against the Soviet Union in this WWII memoir as told to his son. Friedrich “Fritz” Sauer was posted to the Eastern Front in 1942. A soldier in the 132nd Infantry Division, he was deployed in Hitler’s grand invasion of Russia. But instead of the swift knockout blow the Germans had anticipated, Operation Barbarossa ground on for almost four years. Sent first to the Crimea and then the region around Leningrad, Fritz experienced horrors of all kinds. In this memoir, Fritz recalls losing his best friend to a sniper, rescuing the body of a fallen comrade from No Man’s Land, enduring Soviet tank assaults, and his own wounding during a counterattack. Fritz was later transferred to a tank assault regiment where, on a mission to contact another unit, he lost his way in the snow. After sheltering with a farmer’s family, Fritz headed west to flee the advancing Red Army. His subsequent journey home took many twists and turns.

Hell A Hard Look at a Hard Question Book Review:

I welcome this rigorous examination of some of the many questions which are raised by the doctrine of hell. At a time when it is rare to hear even heaven spoken about in our churches, it is encouraging that this sober theme is once more in our sights. It was plainly often on the lips of Jesus. - Nigel M. de S. Cameron, Trinity International University Dr Powys has pursued a rigorous examination of the Scriptures . . . He rivets our attention on what the New Testament actually says about the fate of the unrighteous. This is a seminal work. - David Claydon, Federal Secretary, CMS, Australia The author, writing from a position of biblical conservatism, has presented a powerful, convincing and scholarly case for the view that the unrighteous will forfeit resurrection life in the Kingdom of God. It is, in my judgment, the most thorough treatment of the issue in recent years. - John W. Pryor, Macquarie University This book is an impressive, thorough discussion of a thorny question. Dr Powys is at home in many branches of biblical studies . . . He examines the biblical evidence carefully and sets his case out lucidly and with real insight, showing convincingly how ill-founded are many ancient and many recent views on the fate of the unrighteous. His own solution of a set of complex exegetical and theological issues is judicious and clearly the end result of careful thought. - from the Foreword by Graham Stanton, University of Cambridge David Powys has made a significant contribution to an increasingly important debate. His book's real strength lies in its very careful study of New Testament teaching in the light of a comprehensive analysis of the Old Testament and Jewish literature. This literature is rightly seen not merely as background but as the key to a right understanding of the New Testament teaching. I wish that such a clear discussion had been available when I first began engaging with these questions. - Stephen Travis, St John's College, Nottingham David Powys was educated at The University of Melbourne. He gained degrees in arts and social work, studied theology at Ridley College, and was ordained in 1981. Dr Powys has ministered in four Melbourne parishes. He is an Examining Chaplain to the Archbishop of Melbourne and a member of Archbishop in Council and National Synod. He was awarded the Doctor of Theology by the Australian College of Theology in 1994 for his The Hermeneutics of 'Hell'. The present volume is a slightly abbreviated version of that dissertation.

Fate s Warriors Trilogy Book Review:

This book contains the complete trilogy of the Fate's Warriors series. Note: This series contains characters from the Mortis, Shifter Squad and Hellscourge series, but it can be read as a standalone series. God of Mischief: Locked in a never-ending battle for supremacy, the balance between good and evil is approaching a climax that will determine the destiny of every living being. Advocate for Order, Fate has chosen three warriors to face the agent of Chaos; Loki. Torn from their worlds, Natalie, Lexi and Violet will embark on a multi- dimensional mission. Their task is far more than just to save their own version of Earth. This time, the stakes are much higher. Seeking revenge for being banished from Asgard, Loki has found some unlikely allies to assist him. Once he has defeated Odin and his army, he will turn his attention to Earth. With seven billion slaves to command, nothing will stop him from achieving what he has always craved; ultimate power. Fate isn’t going to make conquering Earth easy for Loki. She uses her well-honed manipulation skills to try to sway him from the dark path he’s chosen. Bianca Caldwell, a helpless mortal who knows nothing about Gods or monsters, will be drawn into the maelstrom with no hope of escape. God of Mayhem: The Shifter Squad is called back into action as Lexi, Natalie and Violet travel to the next dimension in search of their target. Lexi’s world comes under threat from the very being who created shapeshifters so long ago. Again, Loki has allied himself with the Grimgorg, but this time he has new monsters at his beck and call. Loki on the Alpha World continues to strive to keep Bianca Caldwell safe as Fate had instructed him. The girl is an unwanted burden that he wishes he could foist off onto someone else. Instead, he is stuck with her and his very future could depend on keeping her alive. Lexi and her team must once again step up to save their world, but their version of Loki has tricks at his disposal that will make things very difficult for them. They must rely on the two warriors from other realities to help them defeat their enemies. Fate chose them for a reason and they have to trust that neither of them will buckle under the pressure. God of Malice: Violet’s world has only recently recovered from being invaded, but it is now about to be subjected to an attack by aliens. Her angelic and human friends will need to step up once again to save their planet. They will be instrumental in helping Hellscourge and her fellow warriors save humanity from enslavement. Bianca has felt like a pawn ever since she fell into Loki’s arms. When Fate contacts her directly and gives her a task, she realizes her hunch is correct. Her mission is monumental and she isn’t sure that she can pull it off. For the sake of humanity, she has to do the impossible; change the mind of a god. Violet’s version of Loki has allied himself with creatures who are even more sly and treacherous than he is. His choice of partners will prove to be more of a danger than he’d anticipated, but he’d never expected the peril would be to himself.

Fate of Storms Book Review:

A stolen destiny. An impossible quest. Kara Valari has broken one of the underworld’s highest laws and is serving the ultimate sentence. But nothing—not even the impossible quest of breaching the boundaries of hell and facing off with Hades himself—will keep Maximus Kane from rescuing her. The journey will demand all of Maximus’s courage…and help from an unlikely guide. Driven by love, he sets off into a dark realm he only knows from the tattered pages of Dante’s Comedy. In hell’s bleak world, every part of Kara’s soul is subjected to Hades’s morbid fascination and merciless assault. Giving in to his demands means sharing the intimate details of why she dared to disobey him—a love for Maximus that, even now, burns on in her heart. Just when Kara resolves herself to an eternity of her nightmare, she discovers a glimmer of hope…a way to glimpse her beloved. Could her visions of Maximus unite them once more, or are they just another twisted punishment for her in a kingdom designed for agony? In those fleeting moments of light and passion, Kara rekindles her fight to survive. Darkness may still separate her from Maximus, but they’re connected by fate. But can their love survive this storm?

To Hell with Fate Book Review:

Young love is a myth. It's something we're conditioned to expect by movies and stories. It's something we all wanted but could never find. And even when we get older and know the truth, we still wish, just a little, that we had it. When two young cousins find themselves bored to tears at a family funeral, they find another cousin willing to tell them a little story about his young love: how a simple Valentine's Day gift from a mini-mart became one of the best he'd ever given. It's a fine story on its own, but as the girls dig deeper, they find themselves enveloped in a longer saga, told one story at a time. One about the difference between a crush and love. One that challenges their notions of fate and perfection. One about how our own worst enemies can be ourselves, and how in the end, we're all just a little messed up.

Incidental Fate Book 1 Book Review:

Author Summer Leigh's debut series, Incidental Fate (Books 1-6) Sadie moved to San Diego to stay close to her college bound son. Gavin was a senior at said college. She wanted to keep Gavin a secret. He wanted to keep her forever. One kiss, one spark, and Sadie knew Gavin was trouble.One kiss, one spark, and Gavin knew Sadie was more than a night, more than a kiss. Gavin Romano was the youngest of five, his siblings all a decade older. Age meant nothing to him, other than an inconvenience, but it meant everything to Sadie, especially when the man who made her heart race was in his 20's, while she was in her 30's. But on that night, she couldn't stop. Her back was against the wall, Gavin towered in front of her, his body encroached, his lips lowered, and that first kiss created a need neither could run from. One kiss led to one night-which was all it ever could be because while their age made Sadie think twice, it was Gavin being a senior at the same university as her freshman son that made her slam to a stop. Only while she put on the brakes, Gavin went full steam ahead. He knew Sadie was more than a crush, more than a night, more than a kiss-he just had to convince her of that.

Love Wins Enhanced Edition Book Review:

This enhanced edition of LOVE WINS includes extras such as the complete LOVE WINS COMPANION as well as the book trailer video that started it all and ten brand-new videos featuring Rob Bell discussing each of the chapters. In LOVE WINS, bestselling author of VELVET ELVIS and the 2 million-plus selling Nooma videos, Rob Bell, reveals a secret deep in the heart of millions of Christians-they don′t believe what they have been taught are the essential truths of their faith. Bell brings out to the open and faces squarely the questions on everyone′s mind: Does it really make sense that God is a loving, kind, compassionate God who wants to know people in a personal way, but if they reject this relationship with Jesus, they will be sent to hell where God will eternally punish them forever? Bell goes to the heart of these issues and argues that the church′s traditional understanding of heaven and hell is actually not taught by the Bible. Bell is emphatically not offering a new view of heaven and hell-instead, he closely examines every verse in the Bible on heaven and hell and shows what they really teach. And he discovers that Jesus′s most fundamental teaching about heaven and hell is, "Love wins."

Except with her, of course. And those glimpses of Paolo’s soft side are just as sinfully addictive as the rest of him. So when he proposes to take their relationship to the next level—marriage—Dakota can’t deny the thought of becoming his makes her pulse race and her knees go all wobbly. Unfortunately, when the big moment finally arrives, Paolo is nowhere to be found. Was it something she said or foul play? Dakota’s heart won’t move on until she finds out, but is she ready to face her dangerous world alone? Or will Dakota have to let go of everything she loves simply to survive?

Twist of Fate A Heartbreaker Bay Novella Book Review:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes a new story in her Heartbreaker Bay series… When the one you want … Daisy doesn’t believe love is ever-lasting, so it’s ironic as hell that she parlayed a business degree into a wedding planning business. More ironic still is her latest job bringing her back into contact with the man who’d taught her that love can’t last. Is the one you can’t have… To say Diego has been taught the hard way to bury emotions is an understatement. But when he’s called home to help the brother he hasn’t seen or spoken to in years, that’s one thing. It’s another entirely to also come face to face with the first woman he ever loved. First and only… Can love conquer all? Daisy’s learned to depend only on herself, and Diego is and always has been an island of one. And yet when they’re together, even when they’re bickering, still wary and haunted by memories of what was … it’s magic. The question is, how to find their way back to each other…? **Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Mercyful Fate s Don t Break the Oath Book Review:

Upon its release, Don't Break the Oath charted fifth on the official British heavy metal album list and was supported by a two month long sold-out American tour in early 1985. The band's controversial stage appearance with burning crosses, a microphone stand formed as a cross made of two human leg bones, as well as other blasphemous rituals attracted the attention of the then newly formed PRMC (Parental Resource Music Center) committee, ironically reassuring the band its position on the charts. But though the album was hugely popular in the anglophone metal scene, it was conceived in peripheral Denmark. This book discusses the relationship between center and periphery. It juxtaposes the Anglophone reticent of heavy metal with the rather marginalized location of Copenhagen, and examines Mercyful Fate's relation to the Nordic region more generally. It also takes a close look at the methods involved in the production of King Diamond's vocals, and emphasizes the role of the vocalist as just as an important part of the over-all soundscape as the instrumental contributions.

Erasing Hell Book Review:

How could a loving God send people to hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? With a humble respect for God's Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They've asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don't want to believe in hell. But as they write, "We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue." This is not a book about who is saying what. It's a book about what God says. It's not a book about impersonal theological issues. It's a book about people who God loves. It's not a book about arguments, doctrine, or being right. It's a book about the character of God. Erasing Hell will immerse you in the truth of Scripture as, together with the authors, you find not only the truth but the courage to live it out.

Inferno Book Review:

A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice "Inferno is a disturbing and masterfully told memoir, but it’s also an important one that pushes back against powerful taboos. . ." --The New York Times Book Review "Explosive" --Good Morning America "Sublime" --Bookpage (starred review) When Catherine Cho and her husband set off from London to introduce their newborn son to family scattered across the United States, she could not have imagined what lay in store. Before the trip’s end, she develops psychosis, a complete break from reality, which causes her to lose all sense of time and place, including what is real and not real. In desperation, her husband admits her to a nearby psychiatric hospital, where she begins the hard work of rebuilding her identity. In this unwaveringly honest, insightful, and often shocking memoir Catherine reconstructs her sense of self, starting with her childhood as the daughter of Korean immigrants, moving through a traumatic past relationship, and on to the early years of her courtship with and marriage to her husband, James. She masterfully interweaves these parts of her past with a vivid, immediate recounting of the days she spent in the ward. The result is a powerful exploration of psychosis and motherhood, at once intensely personal, yet holding within it a universal experience – of how we love, live and understand ourselves in relation to each other.

Fate s Finger Book Review:

Fate’s Finger is a fictionalized memoir based on the author’s experience as a combat-inexperienced 2nd lieutenant sent to the ETO late in 1944 as a replacement platoon leader in an armored division. He arrived at the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge and fought with his division through three campaigns in Europe. Each chapter is introduced by a newspaper headline appropriate to the times, followed by a letter to or from a character in the book to folks back in the U.S. The events described in each chapter are based on reality, but dialogue, as well as personal names and character development are fictional. Graphics include photographs, news clippings, and maps. Authenticity, verisimilitude, and readibility were the author’s aims, and so the book is meant to be read as a military historical novel written by an old soldier attempting to preserve a micro-history of tank warfare in WW II. “….a ‘bottom-up’ account of tank warfare, unique in the annals of WW II, based on the cold, hard, terrifying facts of armored combat. The way the author develops the humanism of the characters, their language, their down-to-earth thoughts and emotions is truly remarkable.” Col. Arthur F. Pottle, WW II troop commander, 86th Cav Rcn Sqdn, 6th Armored Division, Third Army “Fate’s Finger is a great military micro-historical achievement, telling it like it was for the men on the line in WW II armored divisions, and it reeks with verisimilitude: the contemporaneous U.S. newspaper headlines, and the wonderful human insights in the letters to and from the folks back home. Absolutely authentic, a ‘been there, done that’. I couldn’t put it down!” Capt. Perry Swirsky, WW II tank company commander, 752nd Tank Bn. “Only a rare few WW II accounts have captured as this one has the turmoil that small groups of tankers and their machines endured to make the ‘big picture’ succeed. A must read for old – and new – tankers.” 1st Lt. George A. Campbell, WW II tank platoon leader, 8th Armored Division.
