Unmasking the PreacherIn a time of great compromise and controversy as it relates to the message of Jesus Christ, the role of the preacher must be clearly defined so that the purpose for which he has been called is fulfilled. The preacher is labeled as everything from a motivational speaker and mentor, to a counselor and spiritual advisor. With the many expectations that are often attached to his role in the ministry, he deals with personal failures and struggles behind closed doors - often wearing the mask to hide who he really is from the congregation, his family, and sometimes even from God.Unmasking the Preacher examines the role, purpose and destiny of the preacher as defined by scripture. It is here that the preacher can rely on the Word of God to be his guidance for every challenge he will face both in and out of the pulpit. Growth in his relationship with God will help him balance his life and the demands of ministry, without giving in to the temptation of forfeiting his assignment and calling. When the preacher becomes self-exposed, self-sacrificed, and selfless to the ministry, it is then that he can remove the mask and stand before others with a compassion and conviction of living an acceptable lifestyle before God. Unmasking the Preacher presents a unique guide for ministers to transform from a hidden place of fear to an open altar before God where the same healing and deliverance they preach about, they can receive in areas of their own lives. Whether you are reading this book as a pastor, or you have just been ordained as a minister, you need to know that it is God’s desire to maximize your gifts, talents and abilities through the anointing of His spirit. So allow yourself to look beyond your limitations and rely on your faith to see what God sees in you. On the road to destiny, let’s unmask ourselves before Him without fear and reservation. As you read through the pages, you will learn how to discipline your character to reflect Christ-like characteristics. There will be many things you can relate to, as well as scripture based references for you to study and refer to during your journey. When you allow yourself to be totally unmasked, Jesus will be the only image the world will ever see, and His glory will be revealed in your life.

Traveling the Road to Nowhere by Cindy L. TylerTraveling the Road to Nowhere is a short, thought-provoking depiction of how easily we can veer off course in our relationship with God. Whether through a series of small, unassuming attacks or a massive assault designed to devour us in one instant, our choices often determine our outcome. Therefore, we must remain aware of the ultimate purpose of the devil’s strategy, which is for each of us to join in his eternal demise – the Lake of Fire. Because of God’s unconditional love for us, He sends various forms of warning to help us avoid the crooked roads presented by the enemy. His will is that we select the straight path leading to everlasting life. Prayerfully, this title will cause us all to reflect on how many times we have found ourselves in unfamiliar territory, without a surety that God is leading us. How many times do we travel through life without divine direction? As cunning as the enemy may be, we serve an omniscient God who exposes the demonic devices launched against us, if we maintain open lines of communication with Him. As this generation seeks to wake out of spiritual slumber, will we hear His voice or will we fall prey to the eternal plot to steal, kill and destroy? Consider the costs of Traveling the Road to Nowhere?

Love & Marriage: Are We Really Compatible? by Ondrea L. Davis & Tamara C. WaltersLove, by definition, is an emotion or state of mind that signifies endearment and affection felt for another. All the while, there exists a more spiritual “face” of love which exemplifies what it means to genuinely sacrifice for, submit to, and give oneself to another. As such, we must realize that as a multi-faceted concept, it is important to be aware of how your mate comprehends and expresses love to others. Consider the upbringing and experiences of the person you may be in a relationship with. How will their past affect the way they express themselves to you? Is the way you convey your feelings the same as how they were raised? In most instances, this is not the case. As a result, shouldn’t you be cognizant of the components that will frame the quality of your future together?Love & Marriage is a practical guide that will assist men and women in their quest to assess readiness for marriage, and equip them for life after the vows. Together, couples will actively discuss issues that span from the raising of children to credit history, and even to how they cope with conflict. Initiated from inception, healthy communication should be the foundation of a fulfilling marriage. Therefore, this handbook facilitates the maneuvering of various topics with ease. Within the most effective scenario, these subjects should be considered BEFORE marriage. However, whether dating or married, each chapter allows couples to gain substantial insight into the views of their significant other, as well as their own. Armed with this simple, yet crucial knowledge, we can answer the ultimate question regarding marriage: Are We Really Compatible?
