FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AM I … Guides Readers Toward Personal, Authentic Faith

There is a crisis of faith in today’s world, but it’s probably not what you think. The crisis isn’t that people have stopped believing, it’s that believers don’t have deep, personal connections with what they believe in.

The concepts of faith and belief have been relegated to holy books filled with stories that happened a long time ago. Believers may revere the book, but never read it. They may believe strongly in one religion or another, without really understanding what their religion stands for. As a result, God has become an impersonal, generic concept that sits on the outskirts of daily life, governing from on high in a place far, far away.

Building a life of authentic, personal faith must begin with truly understanding what we have faith in, if we have faith in anything at all, explains author and international speaker Scott MacLellan.

In his book, Am I, MacLellan masterfully guides believers deeper into a personal relationship with the God they worship, whomever that may be. The goal of Am I is not to tell readers what to believe, but to uncover what they already believe on a personal level. Through questions posed to God himself, AM I takes readers beyond the faith of their childhood and community and into a faith that is specific and unique to their lives.

MacLellan has written two versions of Am I. The shortened edition, Am I … The Four Fun-damentals of Faith, is for newer believers who might still be exploring what faith really means. The full version, Am I … Building a Life of Personal Faith, is for the evolving believer. It covers all the material in the condensed version plus several additional topics.

Author, international speaker on faith and entrepreneur Scott MacLellan has impacted multiple organizations whose missions are to help the impoverished, the addicted or those who struggle with illness. When not speaking on one of these subjects, he can be found working with a skilled team of business leaders, or on the coast of South Carolina where he shares his home with his wife of 34 years and his amazing 7-year-old grandson. He has two grown daughters, and more grandchildren are on the way.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Many Of Life’s Questions Answered At WordsForAll.org

Dr. Pieter Noomen was a remarkably insightful writer. He wanted to help us believe that some things are possible – even if they can’t be proven. He personally experienced a profound connection with the source of all existence and he shares these experiences through his writings at www.wordsforall.org. For anyone not wanting to wait until the end of their earthly life for answers, they can easily access the website at any time.

Born in the Netherlands, Pieter Noomen completed doctoral studies in theology and pastoral psychology at the Free University of Amsterdam and was senior minister of three protestant churches. He later worked as a psychotherapist and staff member of a Los Angeles metropolitan church.

Dr. Noomen passed away earlier this year but it was his desire to leave the website open so people can visit it as often as they please to enjoy his writings. Dr. Noomen shared what he discovered through transcendent experiences — something he asserts can be achieved by every human being who is willing to open his or her mind to the information from the universe.

An example of what you will find at Dr. Noomen’s informative website:

“From someone who doesn’t consider himself to be any wiser than you, readers, probably are. The secret is that I don’t create wisdom. It’s given to me on my deepest spiritual level. Like my other body-parts know how to function, so my brains do – if I let them. In other words, it is given to us by the core-spirit of all being: by the One Who Is the Life Force in everything. We on earth are clearly badly disconnected from that Source. Yet, as this website shows, not completely. Direct contact is possible, if we want it. It enables us to see the truth and to share its wisdom. This comes from being a genuine and caring person.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

This Beautiful Book Invites Readers To Experience The Bible As A Single, Unified Story

The most popular and influential book in the world is also the least understood. Its sheer volume of history, poetry, genealogy and mystifying prophecies can prove puzzling — even intimidating — for readers. And since the Bible is often taught or read in pieces, readers are left with mere fragments of what should be a vibrant, cohesive mosaic.

This Beautiful Book: An Exploration of the Bible’s Incredible Story Line and Why It Matters Today by Steve Green, founder of the Museum of the Bible, with contributions from Bill High, invites readers to freshly engage the Bible and to understand it as one amazing story.

Green takes readers on a journey through the many stories of the Bible, some familiar and others less so, highlighting themes woven throughout the ancient writings.

Drawing upon insights gained through developing the first world-class Bible museum, Green reveals the completeness and transformative power of Scripture. Green helps readers see the story within the story and makes the careful connections that help us appreciate the richness of the Bible as a single story. Each page will spark faith in a God who speaks to us across the centuries.

A truly captivating experience, This Beautiful Book will instill in readers a deep appreciation for Scripture and its profound connection to our own life stories.

Author Steve Green is the President of Hobby Lobby and along with his wife, Jackie, co-founded the Museum of the Bible. He grew up in Oklahoma City. At age 7, he glued picture frames together for the family start-up business. With his father (David Green) as CEO, Steve became the president of that little start-up business, which is now known as Hobby Lobby —the nation’s largest privately held arts and crafts retailer. Over the years, Steve has been on a journey to experience the Bible as one beautiful story.

Bill High practiced law for 12 years before becoming the CEO of The Signatry. His mission is to help others live a life of significance through family, legacy and generosity. He and his wife, Brooke, have four children, two sons-in-law and three grandchildren. He can be found at billhigh.com and thesignatry.com.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Walk With Apostle Peter On His Journey Toward Understanding The Power Of The Holy Spirit

A lot of people believe in Jesus Christ but few have a deep, personal relationship with him. Fewer still have a full comprehension of the power of the Holy Spirit. What about you? Are you trying to follow Jesus, but feel like you are falling short? Or perhaps you feel good about your relationship with Jesus, but deep down, you expected to feel differently when you ac-cepted Jesus into your heart and life — there has to be more, right?

Many Christians have become comfortable with the status quo of their faith. They go to church. Lead good lives. Do good deeds. All the while, they read about the intangible con-cept of the Holy Spirit. They listen in church as the pastor speaks of the miracles throughout Acts.
Jesus and Paul and Peter talk about a new power, but what could this power actually look like in day-to-day life?

In The Missing Link: Your Journey With Peter From Self Power to Holy Spirit Power, author Sam Hunter takes readers along on a journey with Apostle Peter, as he transforms from self-centered into being truly filled with the power of the Holy Spirit following Jesus’ return to Heaven.

Told entirely from Peter’s perspective, The Missing Link is a conversational, thought-provoking read that aims to help readers understand the unique and often misunderstood concept of the Holy Spirit. Readers will see the Holy Spirit in a whole new light and learn to appropriate and live with this new power that Jesus promised.

Hunter’s approach is engaging and down-to-earth, with lessons taken directly from scripture woven seamlessly throughout. The Missing Link is for anyone seeking a closer walk with Je-sus and a deeper understanding of the power of the Holy Spirit.

Educated and trained as a structural design engineer, author Sam Hunter spent 20 years in real estate and construction. Jesus turned the light on when Hunter was 38, and he was born again. He has been teaching and preaching about following Jesus for 20 years. He is the host of 721 Live, the radio arm of 721 Ministries and can be heard Fridays 11:00-11:30 on FM91.9 and FM92.9 Christian Talk Radio. He is also the author of The Putting Green Devotional Series for men and women and has produced two DVD curriculums: Contentment: The Path to Peace; and Fear: Do you React in Fear or Respond in Faith? His aim is to help men and women find and live “Life to the Full.” He resides in Greenville, SC.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Unresolved Trauma And Toxic Stress Seep Into The Way We Partner, Parent, Labor And Love

This groundbreaking new book by Dr. Tian Dayton offers a path to healing for the
millions of people who grew up with addiction, trauma, or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Toxic stress and trauma are gaining a rightful place in our country’s national health agenda. Almost two-thirds of people reported at least one adverse childhood event (ACE), and more than one in five reported three or more. When trauma remains unresolved, it can emerge in adulthood as co-addictions, depression, anxiety, PTSD, intimacy issues, and even physical illnesses.

In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, esteemed clinician Tian Dayton offers a way out, drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience, her decades of work as a therapist, and her personal experience as a child growing up in an addicted household. With exercises, journaling prompts, and astute advice from the heart and the trenches of psycho-therapy, Dr. Dayton reveals both a path and a plan to heal.

Discover:

• Why there’s no “normal” for anyone with unresolved trauma—and how to take the first steps to recover.
• The hidden connection between trauma and addictions—and what you can do if you or someone you love is numbing their pain.
• How childhood traumas can make us physically sick as adults.
• How to tell if someone is “emotionally dyslexic”—with ways to build emotional sobriety and emotional literacy.
• Why our biggest triggers can become treasures that lead to a path of healing.

It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. Learn how to change the script with The Soulful Journey of Recovery.

From the Foreword by Gary Seidler:

For those who have grown up in a family with addiction, mental illness, or other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), the heartache and pain doesn’t end when they grow up and leave home. The legacy can last a lifetime and spread to generations unseen. In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, Dr. Tian Dayton details an action plan for readers based on the best research of the past two decades. Herself an adult child of an alcoholic, Dr. Dayton has devoted her life’s work to help others free themselves from the trauma they thought they had left behind; triggered pain and anger from the past that can derail the present or make relationships unnecessarily stressful. Powerful, focused exercises and meditations will put readers in touch with their creative, spontaneous side, leading to positive life changes. A journey of self discovery, the book presents hope circuits of positive psychology, showing readers how to take themselves from a place of pain to one of presence. Readers will discover that recovery is a self-affirming life adventure, and the kindest and best thing they can do for themselves and future generations.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Peace Activist French/American Disobeys Israeli Court Order: Went Underground In Palestine

Frank Romano, Ph.D, disobeyed a court order to leave Israel and Palestine on September 25, 2018. Romano, preferring to continue his work in Palestine, disobeyed the court order and went underground to avoid arrest.

Romano then worked with a team of lawyers in Ramallah, West Bank, preparing a case against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Secretary of Defense Avigdor Lieberman and others, before the International Criminal Court for War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity and other serious international offenses.

In 2018, Frank Romano and other activists stood in front of an Israeli bulldozer preparing for the destruction of a Bedouin village ─ Al Khan al Ahmar in the Jericho Valley, West Bank. He was promptly arrested and imprisoned in Jerusalem. He was thrown into a cell with four hardened Israeli criminals who immediately attacked him, striking and stabbing him with a sharp object. Bloodied and injured, he broke away from the onslaught and pounded on the door. After the guards came and saw the dripping blood, they pulled him from the cell and locked him in solitary confinement.

The following day, Romano was to stand trial in Jerusalem. The police, instead of taking him to court for the trial, drove him to the airport after an Israeli Military Court convicted him of a felony and ordered his deportation. When the judge became aware of the police duplicity, she ordered them to return Romano to Jerusalem to stand trial. After the trial, he was acquitted and released.

For a decade, through interfaith grassroots efforts, Frank Romano has brought Jews, Muslims and Christians together from all corners of the world in support of peace. However, this was a voyage into a tense war zone, the first time defending Palestinian Bedouins, and he has a story to tell.

In Love and Terror in the Middle East (5th Edition), Romano recounts this last voyage to the troubled Holy Land. It covers his arrest, his experiences in jail, his living under-ground in Palestine, and then his second arrest and subsequent deportation. He presently lives and works teaching French in the Sabra and Chatilla Palestinian and Syrian refugee camps in Beirut, Lebanon.

Dr. Frank Romano — PhD Sorbonne University, France
Tenured Professor: University of Paris
Author of Love and Terror in the Middle East, 5th Edition
