Extract from Straightforward Christianity

Straightforward Christianity by Nigel Scotland writes the plain truth for the plain man! How can following Jesus affect your life? Taken from the authors experiences, who has written 23 other books.

CHAPTER 1
A Founder with Universal Appeal

Of all the founders of the world’s religions Jesus has a universal appeal. This fact is powerfully captured in Salvador Dali’s famous painting Christ of St John of the Cross. It depicts Jesus with his arms outstretched and looking down over the entire world. The picture demonstrates Jesus’ deep compassion and concern for the entire human race. This is the truth so profoundly expressed in John’s gospel that ‘God so loved the world that he gave us his only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life’. Today  the  followers  of  Jesus  are  numbered in billions and they are found on every continent in the world.

In 1971 two clergymen were standing together on a New York City Street corner and looking up at the billboards outside one of the theatres. One said to the other, ‘Do you know that show grossed two million dollars’? The other said: ‘Where did we miss out’? The show was Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar! Two million dollars was a huge sum at the time. The show’s popularity was testimony to the universal appeal that Jesus still holds for so many in more recent times. This was followed in 1973 by Stephen Schwartz’s Broadway musical Godspell with a parade of much loved songs including ‘Prepare ye the Way of the Lord’. It’s not just the musicals which have proved to be so popular, epic films such as Franco Ziffirelli’s 1977 Life of Jesus were feted in many of the world’s  countries. Mel Gibson’s 2004 The Passion of the Christ shattered the box office  records. – Extract from Straightforward Christianity

Extract from To God Be The Glory

Have you ever heard God calling you to do something and you do it? To God be the Glory by Keith & Pauline Evans is a book about what happens when you answer God’s call.

KEITH’S TESTIMONY

My testimony is all about God’s great love, mercy, grace and patience with a lost soul. This first story is of a change, from knowing of Jesus (through scripture) to knowing Him personally.

I was brought up in an Anglican church and can’t remember a time when I didn’t go to church, starting as a young boy in Sunday School and later maturing to ‘proper’ church services. I was confirmed at eleven years of age. I’d always believed that Jesus was God’s Son, so getting confirmed was a natural step. I was becoming a member of the Anglican Church! After confirmation I helped as server in the sanctuary, cut the grass and stoked the boiler for the aged vicar – all jobs I enjoyed doing. I started playing piano at 13. A year later sat on the organ stool and was hooked! I became an organist and choirmaster at the age of seventeen. – Extract from To God be the Glory, Keith & Pauline Evans

 

About the Authors

Keith: Church man from Sunday school to 34 years of age. I have always loved church. Server in the sanctuary after confirmation, lifelong organist from age 14. Gave my life to Jesus at age 34 after God audibly called me to ‘More’ over two years. Baptised in the Spirit as I gave my life to Jesus. The book tells of God’s grace, call and direction over the following 32 years.

Pauline: I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love Jesus as my parents were always very involved in church leadership. From an early age I knew that Jesus was special and that He loved every part of me. I became a teacher and I was truly blessed as I loved being with children. Yes, there have been times when I struggled with accepting that I was good enough to receive His love, but when I look back I can see that God has always walked with me in the valleys and on the mountaintops and there have many times when I have been amazed how our great God has used me in the big and little things of life.

Editing or Proofreading?

So you have written your book and are ready to get editing, proofread and published. We help first time or experienced authors convey their message, knowledge or testimony to others about Jesus Christ.

With most of our publishing packages, we accept work that is already proof read or edited, but you may feel that your grammar or punctuation is not good enough – that is where we have professionals to edit your book and give tips on how to make your book fit for the retail market, just leave it to us.

What is the difference between editing and proofreading?

Editing and proofreading are different steps in the process of revising a text. Editing comes first, and can involve major changes to content, structure and language, usually done by authors themselves, while a professional editor makes the final improvements to grammar and style.

Proofreading is the final stage of checking before it is published. Our team focuses on correcting any spelling mistakes, punctuation errors, tidy up the dialogue formatting – and generally get it presentable and ready for printing. This is only available with our Platinum package but our editors are dedicated to making sure your book is 100% professional for publishing. We provide a final review of your manuscript before printing.

For you to see corrections, comments or suggestions, we employ MS Word Track Changes on your document. We’ll also provide you with a clean copy (a ready-to-use file). So when submitting your manuscript we only accept it in a Word format. We cannot edit pdf(s). For ease, submit in doc or docx.

Tips for writers
Before you get to the final stage of proofreading make sure you have thoroughly revised and edited your work. Only proofread once you are happy with the final draft, rather than deciding to take out whole paragraphs later on.

Chapter One – School Days 

Just like in Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything, I am going to have to skim over some parts of my childhood and adolescence just so that we are not here all day.

I was born in November, 1982, the same year Michael Jackson released his Thriller album, Channel 4 was launched, the film E.T came out and everyone was listening to The jam or The Human League. I was born in Bradford, at the BRI to Caroline and James Smith.  We lived in Wrose, in the first house mum and dad bought after they got married, it was perched on a steep hill with wonderful views over Shipley. My brother Alexander came along twenty months later and we moved to Baildon, a small village on the outskirts of Bradford nicely nestled on the edge of the Moors, and that’s where I spent my childhood. – Extract from Flawless, Victoria Kalzyka

Extract from I DO, I DO, I DO, LOVE ALWAYS WINS

Experiencing ups and downs in your marriage? Marriage in general has highs and lows. In I do, I do, I do, Love always wins, by Patricia Gault, is a love story that has twists and turns! It is a personal testimony about how God restored Pat’s marriage.

I Do; I Do; I Do falls into the testimony book genre. It is a memoir, a powerful story of love and forgiveness in the midst of betrayal and heartache. It is written primarily from a wife’s perspective. The strength of this book is the story itself of marriage restoration – all the more amazing because it is true.
This book is intended for those who find their marriages are in trouble, but who still love their spouses, and wish to find an alternative route to the finality of divorce …  also if divorce has already taken place – this book is for you. And this book is to give hope to those who are in despair – whether you are people of great faith, of little faith, or of no faith at all.
I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD. Be strong and take heart. Wait for the Lord. (Ps. 27:13-14)
These verses have been marked in my Bible over eleven times within a period of twenty years.
God’s promises are worth waiting for, even when His timetable doesn’t match our own expectation or desires.
