Book description…

Christ is the light which pierces the darkness. We often find ourselves in darkness. Battle lines have been drawn. The messages of the secular world stand in contrast to the Gospel. We question. We doubt. We feel lost and emptiness inside seems to be growing. Where is God? Jesus himself tells us that if we lose the light, how dark that darkness will become. God is not distant. Through his Son Jesus, he reveals his great love for us; how he desires to be close to us and to enter into a personal relationship with each of us. We just need to be open to his presence. For those who are lost, who find themselves in the dark and who are searching for something lasting, we extend a simple invitation: Come and see. Consider how life in Christ is the only true source of lasting happiness. Experience a God who is always near. Discover or re-discover a faith that is ever ancient, ever new. Christ is the true light that has come into the world and darkness cannot overcome it.

Book description…

Who Do You Say that I Am? Who is Jesus? The answer to this question depends on who you ask. To some, he was a healer, a deliverer, a great teacher, and a miracle worker. To others, he was a glutton, a drunkard, and a blasphemer. In the first three gospels, Matthew, Mark, and Luke record a conversation that Jesus had with his disciples. He asked them who the people say that he is. There were several suggestions – John the Baptist, Elijah, Jeremiah or one of the prophets. Jesus then asked them who they thought he is, and Peter replied that he was the Messiah, the Son of God. This account is not found in John’s gospel. John has a different focus in his writing. He identifies who Jesus is by using the very words of Jesus. This book takes a look at the claims made by Jesus, as to who he truly is. The statements made by Jesus in the Gospel of John and in the Book of Revelation give us a glimpse into the reality of who Jesus really is…in his own words. I invite you to consider the words of the Lord and then answer the question, “Who is Jesus?” for yourself.

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.
