Book description…

Do You Have A Testimony For Jesus? A testimony simply means to tell. Jesus gives us this example in Matthew 11:1-6: AND it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities. Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (KJV). The disciples of John were instructed to go and tell John the Baptist what they heard and witnessed. That is also what Jesus wants believers to do today: “go and tell” about His love, forgiveness, and saving grace. Bear witness of how He has blessed you. The author asks on behalf of the Lord Jesus Christ, “Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest awhile . . .” During your period of rest consider the Almighty and the grace, mercy, and love He extends to all humanity. A Testimony will inspire you to meditate on God’s goodness and mercy and to arise from rest with new determination to share your faith. You too, like the Apostle Paul, will firmly declare, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Book description…

By the Grace of God, chronicles the life experiences of the author which on several occasions, could have resulted in his death. He assumed his survival was as a result of luck or skill or a combination of both until the mid-1990’s, when a spiritual reality began to unfold in his life. Ultimately, his spiritual rebirth led him to the Bible which came to life within the context of his newborn spiritual awareness. In the book, he describes a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ that is both touching and inspirational. He believes that relationship is freely available to all that open their hearts and minds to that possibility. The author’s hope is that readers who believe in God will have their faith strengthened and those who don’t, will open their minds and hearts to the peace and love that comes with a personal relationship with Jesus. Divine intervention happens!

Introducing Gloria D. Edwards, author of Made On Purpose

“My publishing journey with Outskirts Press was simply amazing! Every step of the way Jamie, my author’s Rep was there with a ready answer to my questions, no matter what time I reach out to her. After my book was finally published I received a form that I wasn’t able to fax back to the number that was provided and guess who I reach out to? Yes, My author’s Rep and sure enough she provided a solution. I am almost finished with my sequel to Made on Purpose and can’t wait to take the journey again with Outskirts Press. Kudos to you guys.”

Gloria Edwards was born in Hanover, Jamaica, grew up in Hanover, and spent her early adulthood in Kingston, Jamaica. It was during her time in Kingston, Jamaica, while away from close family and friends that Gloria started writing. During those years her myriad emotions were written in poetic form. She made an attempt to publish her poems but was discouraged by the only known publishing house in Kingston, Jamaica, at the time, being told that poetry was not doing well in Jamaica. Her work was later partially destroyed by a fire which ravished her grandmother’s house in 2009. Her first book Made On Purpose was published in 2017.

Book description…

Your struggles, Your setbacks, Your circumstances are designed for a specific purpose. Embrace them and watch God work wonders through your life. Joseph was loved and pampered by his father, to the point where his special treatment created friction in the home. Jealousy eventually drove his brothers to sell him into slavery, but Joseph continued to dream big dreams, and later became the first prime minister of Egypt. David was disregarded by his older brothers and was given the lowly task of taking care of his father’s sheep, alone in the wilderness, but his ‘alone-ness’ helped him develop a relationship with the Designer, and when God wanted a king, He sent Samuel to anoint David, though he was but a youth. Sarah was a beautiful woman but she was barren, and in her culture that was a curse. In time, God visited her and promise that she would bear a son. Years passed and Sarah became discouraged and advised her husband to get another woman pregnant, but even after she was past the age of childbearing God kept His word, and through her the nation of Israel was born. Ruth came from a tribe that was greatly despised, and thought that she could change her circumstances by marrying a Levi, but her husband died young, leaving her with nothing. The opportunity came and she left her homeland, and one who was despised, became the mother of the kingly lineage of the King of Kings. Moses was born at a time when his people were enslaved and every male child that was born was to be thrown in the river, but the very thing that was meant for his destruction became the vehicle for the deliverance of not only his family, but an entire nation.
