    In "Explore the Book of Revelation" by author Julius M. Scott we see the Birth of Jesus Christ and the great conflict between God and Satan. Satan is defeated and thrown down to earth. The birth and life of our Jesus Christ, His death and Resurrection, are the most important single event in mankind’s existence. Without Christ’s sacrifice for our sins there is no one, except Jesus Christ, that has lived a sinless life. Without Jesus there could be no Book of Life and no way that we could gain access into the New Jerusalem. As Adam and Eve were disobedient all of their descendants have also been disobedient.

    Author Ernest Dempsey's second collection of short stories "The Blue Fairy" takes a subject that has been dreaded for centuries - 'Death'. It is one of the few works of fiction, which neither treats the subject as the 'D word' by bringing in fantasies of afterlife nor compromises the solemnity by trying to evaporate the reality of death in humor. Instead, Dempsey explores the many sides to the subject that make the final departure a meaningful reality of existence. Inspired mostly by real life experiences, Dempsey's "The Blue Fairy" ingeniously integrates dying with living. It is a book for the soul.

    "For the Love of Dogs" by author Suzanne Woods Fisher is centered around Samantha Christiansen who has been robbed of most of her vision by a degenerative disease, and it's only a matter of time before the light and shadows are gone as well. Sam, however, is not one to let impaired vision slow her down. All business, she's introducing 1960's America to the benefits of olive oil, and has become quite successful. Her groves of olive trees are thriving under the hand of her brother-in-law, and her twin sister s creative edge in the kitchen is bringing nation wide attention to their family-grown company. As her sight wanes, Samantha is reluctant to admit that getting around is increasingly difficult. A near miss crossing the street leaves her on her backside with a stranger helping her to her feet. It's an encounter that changes her life!

    Prayer is the most powerful source of communicating with God. Not only does prayer give readers a spiritual voice, but it also puts calm in your heart. These writings are author Lonnie Pruitt's way to praise, worship, and show a love for an awesome God. Pruitt found the best place to start is to look deep within your own heart. The poems within "Prayer Is Our Power" contain both prayers and messages that will hopefully help readers reveal the path they seek.
