The Essential Guide to Deliverance By Larry Richards Review

The Essential Guide to Deliverance: Finding True Freedom in Christ
Practical, Everyday Introduction to Deliverance for All Christians

For most Christians, the word deliverance often brings negative connotations to mind: lots of yelling and holy water and darkness—maybe even something from a Hollywood horror movie exorcism. But deliverance is not about shouting or showmanship. It is about the simple act of asking Jesus for help, for freedom, and using his authority over the enemy.

In this accessible and practical guide, evangelical leader and bestselling author Larry Richards walks you through the who, what, when, where, why, and how of deliverance. In everyday language, he shows how you can apply this information to your life and the lives of your friends and family.

As children of God, we have been given access to Jesus' death-defying power to help free ourselves and others from evil. You don't have to continue to struggle with persistent problems or strongholds. Your loved ones can be freed from the lies or addictions that hold them back. There is hope in Christ—you can live in freedom!

Includes an extensive glossary of terms and appendixes with prayers and even more practical resources.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-    This is for a Christian or someone who is finding freedom in Christ.  It is strong to this subject and enlightens the reader with the author's  view of demons actually existing.   It may scare little children and some adults.  It is really open to discussion and full of topics.


Larger-Than-Life Lara Review



Larger-Than-Life Lara
Dandi Daley Mackall

Price: 14.99
ISBN: 978-1-4964-1429-8
Trim Size: 5.5 x 8.25
Binding: Hardcover

Release:
November 2016

This isn’t about me. This story, I mean. So already you got a reason to hang it up. At least that’s what Mrs. Smith, our English teacher, says.

But the story is about ten-year-old Laney Grafton and the new girl in her class—Lara Phelps, whom everyone bullies from the minute she shows up. Laney is just relieved to have someone else as a target of bullying. But instead of acting the way a bullied kid normally acts, this new girl returns kindness for a meanness that intensifies . . . until nobody remains unchanged, not even the reader.

In a unique and multi-layered story, with equal parts humor and angst, Laney communicates the art of storytelling as it happens, with chapter headings, such as: Character, Setting, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax. And she weaves an unforgettable tale of a new girl who transforms an entire class and, in the process, reveals the best and worst in all of us.

This is a powerful and emotional story, which School Library Journal called “Thoroughly enjoyable and unexpectedly wry, . . . as intelligent as it is succinct.”

Cassandra's Review Q&A-

- What did you like about the book and why?  The author presents a very real problem in the world today and created a very upbeat person to take it on.

- What did you not like about the book and why? I feel like the little girl should have spoken up first and got help because even with the smiling and positivity it still should not have been allowed to continue.

- What did you learn? Everyone has a different view of this subject.

- To whom would you recommend this book and why?  I would say for older youth who are having a hard time coping with this type of problem, but I would also point out that getting help is the first step to any progress.

The Emerald Key $25 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash GIVEAWAY

  EMERALD KEY BOOK COVER The Emerald Key by Mark Frederickson & Melora Pineda Penny and Laci are headed for a mundane summer vacation until a mysterious journal unlocks a portal to another world and they find themselves face to face with a baby dragon. In an attempt to send their new acquisition back to its home, the girls, along with two neighborhood friends, get sucked through to a mythical world. In this land, they must battle foes seen and unseen, pushing them to both their physical and mental limits. If they fail to stop the powers they’ve unleashed, it could not only destroy this strange world,
but also annihilate their own.

THE PORTAL

Traveling through a portal wasn’t as fun as it had sounded. First of all, it was pitch-black; the can’t see your hand in front of your face kind of black, and it was cold and windy. That combination of darkness, wind, and chill made it extremely disorienting to Laci. Then began the really fun part: the pressure. Not the kind of pressure felt when taking a test; this was physical pressure. It felt like her whole body, except for her head and feet, were stuck inside a tube. Glancing at her friends, she thought they looked like four giant Pixie Stix with heads and feet floating through a dark, cold tornado. This is portal travel, she thought. This stinks.

  add to goodreads Praise for The Emerald Key “In The Emerald Key, authors Mark Frederickson and Melora Pineda take readers on a fast-paced journey sure to enthrall not only middle-grade readers but their parents, as well. Laci and Penny will appeal to anyone looking for strong, resourceful female characters and the side characters are well-developed and hilarious, too (my favorite might be Buzz!).” - Author Julie Gardner “If you like fantasy and want adventure, this book is for you!

This book is funny and an adventure story for both young and old readers. I'm looking forward to the next book!” - MJP
