Book description…

If you’ve ever suffered from a broken heart, ask yourself one question: Are you simply living with and accepting your pain, or are you ready to restore your heart, fully and completely? When the author of Restoration of the Heart faced the greatest wilderness experience of his life, his heart was totally broken. Destroyed. But what he learned through the process of healing was profound, and this is what he shares in his powerful new book. In order to achieve true happiness, it is imperative that you live in total restoration and fulfill the plan for your life, rather than merely living with a controlled or broken heart. Restoration of the Heart offers some practical scriptural truths to help you discover the meaning of restoration. In Section One, discover the 12 characteristics of control. How did control-the biblical Jezebel-get started in Israel, and how do we destroy this stronghold? Section Two examines the broken heart. What is the right and wrong way to deal with brokenness and hurt in your life? In Section Three you’ll find the answers for total restoration. Restoration of the Heart is filled with life-changing principles derived from the greatest book ever written-the Bible. By applying these principles to your life, and by spending time in quiet meditation with the Lord, you, too, can experience a total Restoration of the Heart and live victoriously, free from the pain of the past.

A Bright future awaits the world! There is only one problem…until that time, stressful times will only intensify! Even today, anxieties and fears permeate our society. One study finds anxiety has become the number one mental health issue in America. It is estimated that one-third of our population experiences anxiety wellness issues. In skyrocketing numbers, anxiety/pain pills, recreational drugs, and alcohol are being used…supposedly, they alleviate our anxieties. In this book, Bible teacher Ron Hoffman offers solid biblical teaching regarding the Bible’s focus on past, present and future realities concerning this world. This study is not for pointless curiosity or to satisfy our minds with empty data. No, this study is to bring about accurate biblical knowledge to generate transformation of mind, as well as Hope, encouragement, comfort, and peace to the believer’s heart. And, yes, Jesus will return one day…He promised! Believers are to be waiting expectantly for His imminent return…He told us He would appear when we least expect Him…and, yes, it will certainly be a bright future!

Introducing Johnny Coomansingh, author of Seven Years on Adventist Street

“Writing and publishing this little book: ‘Seven Years on Adventist Street’ is a milestone in my life. I have always wanted to pen my childhood experiences while growing up on Adventist Street in the town of Sangre Grande, Trinidad. It is now a reality! Outskirts Press has made my dream come true. The Outskirts Press personnel assigned to me in publishing this book were patient, kind, prompt, and effective. Their constant attention to the process gave me the assurance that they were working tirelessly to have my book on the shelves. I am working on another book as we speak, and Outskirts Press will have my contract for the production of this new book. I am so proud of my accomplishment. Thank you Tina and Lisa…and thank you Outskirts!”

Book description…

Have hope. Written especially for youth everywhere in any station of life, Seven Years on Adventist Street distills hope…hope for all; all who think that they are living under the worst of circumstances. Seven Years on Adventist Street dissects, analyses, and synthesizes the impact of cultural forms on a young boy’s mind during the period 1960-1966. The narrative provides a window into the societal structures that fashioned his belief, his positive outlook, and his anchor of hopefulness as he journeys through life. On any given street in Trinidad, an individual could find an array of cultural variables similar to that of Adventist Street. Despite this fact, Adventist Street is unique. His emic view of Adventist Street as place, establishes the great value he has ascribed to this street in directing his intellectual leanings and perception of the world. Part of his soul is everlastingly entwined in the noise of the street-scape. More than any other place, he identifies with Adventist Street, and sadly, could offer no explanation for the placelessness of the basin in the Guaico River where he used to fish; no one fishes there anymore. In such a cultural melee, he was able to find a compass, and subsequently, chart a course for life. Seven Years on Adventist Street characterizes the play and interplay of people and their roles, rituals, and religion in the creation of a community. In his poverty-stricken world during those early years, he became a literal forager of sorts in his immediate environment and was able to sometimes fend off his physical hunger. Nevertheless, the hunger for intellectual stimulation and development was ever present. Written on the wall of his elementary school was the proverb: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Taking this bit of biblical scripture as his guide, he purposed in his heart to keep focused on the goals that would emancipate him from the shackles of rebuff, ridicule, and want. Seven Years on Adventist Street reveals a fulfilling story of hope, prayer, perseverance, and providence.

Book description…

Unless the eye catch fire! Evelyn Underhill once wrote: “A thousand forms of loveliness elude us every day for lack of attention.” And attention requires more than a superficial looking and seeing. Every waking moment, illuminations of grace elude us because we are not in the proper position to see and embrace them. In order to see the smallest of revelations, we need to draw near, to be close enough to truly see with eyes that have caught fire! In order to see more closely and clearly, we will need to get into the proper position; in order to see with amazement sparkling in our eyes, we’ll mostly need to stoop down!

Book description…

In the year of the Lord, 304 A.D., faith in Jesus Christ is a crime punishable by death, under the rule of the Roman Emperor, Diocletian. Marina, a young shepherdess, rises above the ashes to fearlessly proclaim the truth of all things: Jesus is alive and His Kingdom of Heaven is real! While shadows of darkness lie in wait for Marina’s faith to fail, angels of light protect her all the way to the guillotine. The miracles of her martyrdom would deny all reason and logic, only to prove that God’s incredible power and righteous judgment still reign on high. Those seeking a revival of faith in the supernatural deity of the Lord will find these pages riveting, inspiring, and full of unceasing hope in His promise of eternal life.
