Introducing Rodney Kendrick, author of Cut and Paste Religion

“Because of you and a couple of other people associated with publishing my book, I had encouragement all the way through publication. I waited too many years to write the book that I felt needed writing. Because of your help, the nomination of my book for the EVVY award was such a surprise to me, and now seeing there are only 45 of us in the contest. I am so honored to be this far in the contest. It makes me feel like I belong as a writer. I had a story to tell that wasn’t being told by religious leaders. I had to ask myself, ‘If not me, who would write the story?’ Thanks again for your encouragement!”

Rodney Kendrick was born, raised and lives in Kentucky. He met and married his wife while serving in the US Air Force in 1967. He has always been interested in religion, but became disillusioned with it, until being introduced to the Churches of Christ in 1971. Their commonsense focus on New Testament Christianity propelled him to actively promote God’s full plan for salvation.

Book description…

Christianity is About What’s Right – Not What’s Convenient. The experience of going to worship has changed…have you noticed? Worship seems to be focused on staged shows mostly focusing on personalities and entertainment. Each denomination has their creed book separate and apart from the Bible. Integrity seems to take a back seat to self-promotion. Cut and Paste Religion is an in-depth examination of what makes a church real. It reminds us that Christianity isn’t always easy – that we are called to do what is right and true, rather than being fooled by instant gratification and stage shows. You’ll find guidance and valuable information to aid you in your quest. Cut and Paste Religion is the friend you have been looking for, to support you on the straight and narrow path.

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.
