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.

Introducing Leroy Lakey, author of …What You Heard Is Not What I Meant!

“I am very pleased with my experience with Outskirts Press. This is my first book and was looking for a very affordable way to get it published. At the price that I paid, I didn’t expect to get any extra benefits or suggestions. But what I did get was a great Publishing Consultant, Jerry, and a really great Author Representative, Jamie, who helped me work through several problems that I was experiencing. And after the book was published in record time, they are giving me many great suggestions to market my book with their Outskirts Press marketing Coach. I got all of this with a very reasonable low production cost.”

Book description…

There is an old quotation which has been attributed to Alan Greenspan that says “I know that you believe that you think you understand what you thought you heard me say, but what you don’t realize is that what you heard is not what I meant.” In trying to understand the Bible, people think of this quote and wonder “What is God trying to say?” People who read the Bible have many questions and can interpret verses many different ways. All of us tend to just accept someone else’s answers about the scriptures without giving it much thought. How do we answer the problem of creation? The “sermon on the mount” and the “prodigal son” parable have more to say to me than just a list of blessings and a story about a child gone astray. In this book, Lakey shares his insights and hopes that within these pages that you are given some thoughts that you have not considered before and will get interested in finding your own answers.

Book description…

If you have ever had doubts about the existence of God, this book is about a spiritual awakening that few have been fortunate to experience. It is written through the eyes of a father and son who lived it and continue to live it to this day. It will give you insights into the world beyond life on this planet. Everyone at some time has wondered what it will be like when we cross over. But what about now, in our day to day lives? For far too long we have forgotten and left Yahweh and Yeshua out of our daily lives and He is not happy about being forgotten. The author was no different than anyone else who forgot Yahweh and Yeshua after having tragedy or hardships in their lives. Because of all the horrible things he has seen as a police officer and losing people he loved, he forgot there is someone looking out for all of us. It took “reaching the end of the rope” to finally see there is hope. The book is written in a journal style entry as everything happened.

Introducing Patricia A. Miller, author of NeverMore

“I am sincerely impressed with Outskirts’ professionalism. I experienced an amount of trepidation in the beginning because I thought publishing this way would be difficult. I was reassured from the very start that I was not in this alone and that help was simply an e-mail away. It was true! Every single question or concern I had was answered or explained within hours of me expressing it. I felt a part of the process from day 1 and was always kept in the loop about what was happening and about to happen. The cover of NeverMore is even more beautiful than I imagined, and the book is of high-quality. My decision to publish with Outskirts was made after much research, and I am thankful my first book is a product of this publishing company. My thanks and appreciation go out to Colleen and all the staff members who had a part in making my dream come true.”

Patricia Miller is a retired psychologist who has studied and observed human behavior for many years—a study she puts to good use when weaving her characters’ personalities. Patricia and her husband, William, live in Wisconsin, where they have made their family second only to God.

Product description…

I have always been one to raise a red flag when people begin talking of end times and current events. I would usually dismiss it and reference Jesus’ statement that “no one (would) know the day or the hour.” (Matthew 24: 36; 25: 36) Since as early as A. D. 960 there have been “millennialists” who stir people up with prophecies, causing them to wait on the mountains or by the seashores only to see time continue to march on and scoffers as described in (2 Peter 3: 3-7). However, in the last several years, I have been led to say that it would be wise to read the newspapers and the Scriptures at the breakfast table at the same time; there is such an intense overlap. In a rebuke to the religious leaders of His day, Jesus said: . . . O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? Matthew 16: 3b KJV Jesus, in answer to His disciples’ question about when the end would be, also said that we should be like a farmer who takes note of the seasonal signs of the trees, etc. to know-a “wake-up call” – that the season is near. I believe there are clear, certain and concise signs of the season in the present day. My Coach tells me that this will be the late, last run.
