All Things Bright and Strange By James Markert Review

34460630
In the wake of World War I in the small, Southern town of Bellhaven, South Carolina, the town folk believe they’ve found a little slice of heaven in a mysterious chapel in the woods. But they soon realize that evil can come in the most beautiful of forms.

The people of Bellhaven have always looked to Ellsworth Newberry for guidance, but after losing his wife and his future as a professional pitcher, he is moments away from testing his mortality once and for all. Until he finally takes notice of the changes in his town . . . and the cardinals that have returned.

Upon the discovery of a small chapel deep in the Bellhaven woods, healing seems to fall upon the townspeople, bringing peace after several years of mourning. But as they visit the “healing floor” more frequently, the people begin to turn on one another, and the unusually tolerant town becomes anything but.

The cracks between the natural and supernatural begin to widen, and tensions rise. Before the town crumbles, Ellsworth must pull himself from the brink of suicide, overcome his demons, and face the truth of who he was born to be by leading the town into the woods to face the evil threatening Bellhaven.

Cassandra's Review-- The author has inserted so many realistic scenarios into this read that it seems like your sitting in the scene and that always makes for a great read.  Everything from the characters to the way the layout is presented is going to appeal to readers of this genre. 

The Hidden Enemy by Michael Youssef Review

The Hidden Enemy: Aggressive Secularism, Radical Islam, and the Fight for Our Future
by Michael Youssef
35755952
What's going on in our world?
Why are suicide bombers attacking our cities? Why are shooters invading our workplaces and malls? Why are students attacking speakers at their colleges? Why are there two versions of the truth on the Internet and in the media?

Michael Youssef, popular teacher and Middle Eastern expert, explains in detail what's troubling today's world. Aggressive secularism is stripping our nation of the vestiges of truth, as many Christians are browbeaten into silence. What's ironic is that secularism is actually opening the door to the "might makes right" nature of radical Islam. In a post-truth world, the most powerful voice wins.

What can save us and our children from this chilling future? Michael Youssef, in this groundbreaking book, shows how we can win the war against aggressive secularism, beat back the threat of radical Islam, and build a brighter future for both ourselves and the next generation.

Be prepared for the times in which we live. Understand what's happening. Stand up for a brighter and hope-filled future for our children.
