"Resurrect" by David E. Stevens

A United States Navy Test Pilot has crashed.  When he awakens, he is in a hospital with the memory of the flight and all that led up to it.  Then there's his wife.  He is not sure where he is other that in a hospital.  While awaiting his consciousness, he clearly remembers speaking with a person called Jesse.  Jesse, has instructed Josh regarding the coming end of the world, or at least the end of the world as we know it.  

  "Resurrect", by David E. Stevens, is a captivating novel.  The author's talents in writing brings the reader right into the story, and grabs a hold.  You as the reader will not be let go until you turn the last page of this novel.  

  Josh Logan is charged with saving the world.  How is he to do such thing when he has been told by Jesse, that the world will be changed/ended in two years.  How does one man do such a overwelming task.  
 While in the hospital he befriends a nurse who has been taking care of him for some time.  When Josh awakens, he finds out that he has been transported in time.  He was found on the side of the road, stark naked and with no idea where he is.  He hears voices in his head telling him about the plight that the world is in and how he is to save the world.  What Josh so vividly remembers is how he fought to keep his burning crashing fighter jet from going down in a neighborhood.  He last thoughts are about his wife and the innocent civilians below.  
 Oh by the way.  When Josh awakes he does not look anything like he did a year ago.  This fact alone makes Josh wonder if he is going crazy or if in fact Jesse, is trying to tell him, being Josh, that he is the one to save the world.  Josh knows that he can not do the task alone and must enlist others to assist him.  He remembers his Navy associates who can help, but how does he get to them?  Let alone convince them to help him.  

  I would rate this novel a 5 out of 5 Stars.  It is a compelling novel which will leave the reader in awe.  I'd like to take this opportunity the thank Litfuse and David Stevens, for allowing me to read and review this novel.  I'ts sure to become a Best Seller.  Christians and all Book Lovers will find the book both captivating and uplifting.

"Understand Theology in 15 Minutes a Day",by Daryl Aaron

This exceptional book takes Theology and the Bible and through the help of Daryl Aaron, makes Theology understandable.  First of all, we as readers expect theology to be difficult. , when in fact, if we take Scripture, and study, I mean really study it, it will become understandable.  It like making sense of the teachings of Jesus Christ and brings them down to every day understandability.
  "Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day", by Daryl Aaron, is broken down into 40 sections which can be picked by the reader, for closer study, or the reader can do as I did, and read each section and study the scriptures indicated in each.  I found myself spending more time each day reading and studying than the designated 15 minutes, but I found it worth it.  Thank you Daryl Aaron for compiling such a wonderful study.  I'd like to thank Bethany House Publishing for giving my the opportunity to read/study and review this selection.  It is sure to become a must for the Christian Library.

"Globequake", by Wallace Henley

Everything and everyone around you appears to be falling apart and you don't see any future.  How many times have we seen this type of situation or at least felt that way.  These times seem to shake our resolve and without Christ in our lives we would be doomed.  "Globequake", by Wallace Henley is a book which at those times of feeling that everything around you is falling apart, you can turn to the pages of this book to find some of the answers to your "Globequake".  
One such "Globequake" we can turn to is that of the attack and destruction of the Twin Towers on 9/11.  How many of us thought that that was signalling the end of the world as we know it.  
  One thing we can count on if we are Saved, and have accepted Christ as our Savior, is that He will provide and protect us.  His Kingdom is unshakeable 
  Henley has taken the time to utilize Scripture and common sense to explain just how the quakes in our lives can be corrected, if only we use what we read and gain the understanding and knowledge that the Bible provides.  He also uses examples of being unshakeable through historical figures such as General Jackson, during 
the American Civil War, when he was nicknames Stonewall Jackson for his steadfast leadership during one of the first battles of the Civil War.  
All I can say is don't wait for your personal "Globequake:, before you read this wonderful selection.  Wallace Henley has done a wonderful job of providing the information and Scripture to back it up in his book entitled "Globequake."  I would like to thank Henley for providing such a timely piece of literature.  I'd also like to thank Thomas/Nelson Publishing and BookSneeze for the opportunity to read and review "Globequake", by Wallace Henley.
