Book description…

This book is for a wide readership that will be introduced to: A personal account of a Holocaust survivor; A Jewish artist’s portrait of Christ; An invitation to Judeo-Christian dialogue; An example of a faith-based community welcoming and sheltering refugees facing death; A stirring call to exemplify love at the highest level, that risks one’s life for others as a religious duty. “Martha Kriebel’s book brings to light a series of important but forgotten paintings that began a modernist/realist trend in Sunday School curriculum. The original paintings were used by the Evangelical and Reformed Church to create a filmstrip and published curriculum presenting more realistic images of the life and ministry of Jesus. Kriebel reintroduces not only Barosin’s paintings but also presents an important part of the history of church school curriculum. – The Rev. Richard Berg, Archivist Emeritus, Evangelical and Reformed Historical Society at Lancaster Seminary, PA. “Both Christians and Jews owe Dr. Martha Kriebel a debt of gratitude for preserving the memory and the art of Jacques Barosin. This Jewish artist survived the Holocaust due to the heroism of a French Christian and then produced a wonderful portfolio of watercolors depicting the life of Jesus. Pastor Kriebel’s annotated collection of Barosin’s oeuvre is a valuable contribution both to the history of art and to Christian-Jewish relations.” – Judith Blumberg Maslin, M.A., Director Emerita of the Temple Judea Museum of Keneseth Israel. “Jacob Barosin was a man of many talents with one of those complicated 20th century life stories that took him from Russia to Germany to France and finally to the United States. Pastor Kriebel has given voice and exposure to one of Barosin’s professional traits, showing for the first time to a general audience his craft and dedication, in this case his art applied to a central Christian theme. It can be hoped that curiosity in Barosin’s work will broaden interest in his work.” – Dr. Frank Mecklenburg, Director of Research and Chief Archivist, Leo Baeck Institute, New York/Berlin

Introducing Robert Oman, author of The Closed Door

“The personnel with Outskirts Press were very professional, cordial, and timely in their responses. It was a pleasure working with them.”

Robert Oman wrote The Closed Door (Which Side Will You Be On) out of a growing concern about the decline in the moral fabric of this country and the disappearance of the “fear of the Lord” from the Christian landscape. We are in the “latter days” and the Bible specifically states that Christians are not to be deceived by societal influences. Robert and his wife reside near Sunbury, Ohio. They have two grown sons, four grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Book description…

Understanding end-time prophetic scriptures can be frustrating since not all the related information is presented in one place in the Bible nor is it presented in an easily understood chronological order. The Closed Door (Which Side Will You Be On) is an attempt to take the reader on a step-by-step journey through the myriad of end-time prophetic scriptures that are presented in a definitive chronological order. This journey will show the inter-relationship of such major future events as the disappearance of nearly two billion people, the formation of three future geopolitical alliances, the ancient religion that will be integral with Mystery Babylon, and the three invasions of Israel. This journey will also delve into the numerous realms of God’s creation (past, present and future) and include a description of three eternal people groups and three eternal realms. The specific eternal people group that you will be in will determine the specific realm where you will spend eternity. The life choices that you make this side of the grave will have eternal consequences. Where will you spend eternity? Before life’s door closes, I pray that you will choose wisely – and soon!
