Spiritual Self-Help – Come into His Fullness, Becoming a Whole Brain Believer

Come into His Fullness, Becoming a Whole Brain BelieverCome into his fullness
by Pam Micca with Ginger Smith
Publisher: West Bow Press
ISBN: 978-1449772000
Published: November 2012
Pages: 314
Genre: Spiritual Self-Help
Format Available for review: print, ebook

Pam Micca understands how to weave together a message of change that could only be attained by applying the very aspects of psychology, spirituality, and biblical principle that, at times, can seem to contradict each other. In her new book, Come into His Fullness, Becoming a Whole Brain Believer, Pam pragmatically and relentlessly calls us forward to explore the areas in our lives where we are losing the battle in our attempts to become healthier in body, soul and spirit. More importantly, her book teaches the reader to methodically search out the self with the same passion a miner experiences as he searches for a rich vein of jewels or gold ore.

“I consider this book a primer” said Micca. “I wrote it to provide readers with simple answers to their spiritual questions. It is not the complete story or a deep intensive study of any one of its parts. It provides a broad overview of steps the reader can take to come into greater fullness of relationship with God.” Micca acknowledges that in her own life journey she has rarely fit into the “norm” when it came to spiritual issues or in the ways she has interacted with God. She states that “the rhythms of my communications with God would often include a ‘no’ or ‘why?’ I wanted him to show me, explain to me, help me understand the reasons for the various steps he wanted me to take and the stages he wanted me to engage in as I worked to cooperate with his will, direction, purpose and design for my life.”

Because Micca was hungry for the healing, growth and maturity that a relationship with God promised, she chose to embark on a lifelong journey with God regardless of how painful and/or difficult it was at times. She has a strong desire to share the specific steps she took along the way. She learned to check things out for herself regardless of any initial negative internal message she experienced upon encountering new information or new definitions of old information. In the process she has also learned how to dig deeply into the Word of God. She has discovered that there is always a reason for why God says and does the things He says and does.

Come into His Fullness has received a glowing endorsement from Deborah Bedford, an award-winning author whose novels have been published in 18 countries and in a dozen different languages. Her novels include A Morning like This, A Rose by the Door, Remember Me, The Penny and Any Minute. Bedford says “Within these pages, the author has been able to integrate issues that impact each of us daily …not overlooking any parts of the self or of God, even if those parts can seem unattractive, painful, ugly, or unpleasant.” Bedford adds that this book is “a gift to all of us that Micca has seen fit to share this ultimate adventure story … in a way that teaches us the step-by-step instructions on how to be present when the heavenly Father calls us to be everything He created us to be.”

Pam Micca is a gifted teacher, leader, and counselor. She is the founder and CEO of Healthy Women, Healthy Girls LLC, a consulting, education and women’s ministry organization. She has been a therapist for 28 years and has developed an expertise working with individuals with eating disorders and related co-morbid illnesses. As a writer and speaker she has developed the ability to creatively illustrate biblical principles, poetically express age-old truths and weave her clinical expertise as a therapist into the way she helps people dig into their own souls, as they search for healing and whole person health.

Politics/Government – Bible Bullies: How Fundamentalists Got The Good Book So Wrong

Bible Bullies: How Fundamentalists Got The Good Book So WrongBible Bullies
By C. Arthur Ellis, Jr. and Leslie E. Ellis
Publisher: Gadfly Publishing, LLC
ISBN: 978-0982094099
Published: April 2013
Pages: 206
Genre: Politics/Government
Format Available For Review: Print, Nook, Kindle, PDF

Bible Bullies is a controversial new book that explores the nature of a special kind of bully: the kind who use the Bible to force or coerce others into conforming to their beliefs.

The book identifies fourteen personality traits of these bullies, their tactics, and how they misuse the Bible to abuse children and attack identified “out-groups,” including women, the LGBT community, and social programs for the disadvantaged. Six of these personality traits were previously identified in a study, commissioned after World War II by the American Jewish Committee, to try to understand the mind-set of Europeans who supported Hitler’s atrocities.

Chapters discuss misogyny, sexual diversity, child abuse, intelligent design, social programs, and family planning, in the process revealing specific targets of Bible bullies and their misguided use of Scripture in their assault on their victims.

After identifying the salient traits of Bible bullies and how they attack their victims, the book discusses the bullies’ MO—how they operate. Not content with abusing just the victims in their own hometown, the Bible bullies seek to expand their personal power through political means, by arguing against separation of church and state and pushing for an exclusively Christian nation.

The final chapters reveal the crucial rift in the New Testament that laid the groundwork for those seeking to distort the message of peace and love brought by Jesus.

Christian – Rising To Everlasting Life

Rising To Everlasting LifeRising to Everlasting Life
by Teri S. Riddering
Publisher: Xulon Press
ISBN: 978-1613797204
Pages: 256
Genre: Christian Eschatology
Format Available For Review: Print, PDF, e-book

Within the pages of “RISING TO EVERLASTING LIFE: The Resurrection Texts for both Christians and Jews,” author Teri S. Riddering has collected the main authoritative Biblical and extra-Biblical resurrection texts, evidencing that both Christians and Jews were given the same promises of resurrection with identical elements, so both must see the fulfillment of this event together and at the same time. She claims that these texts prove that there can be only one event for all of God’s people (both Jews and Christians) at the appointed time.

Yet, both Jews and Christians must analyze and change some of their present eschatological misconceptions. Many Christians believe that the “rapture” will be a distinct event from the final resurrection, and is only meant for them. At the same time, Jews understand that the final resurrection is also only meant for them, in fulfillment of God’s promises to Israel.

Riddering compares the Christian and Jewish perspectives regarding the final resurrection, and gives some suggestions as to how each can adjust their own views and accept each other as part of God’s people.

Christianity – We Confess! The Civil War, the South, and the Church

We Confess! The Civil War, the South, and the ChurchWe Confess
By Deborah P Brunt
Publisher: WestBow Press
ISBN: 978-1449731786
Pages: 300
Genre: Christianity
Format Available For Review: print, kindle, nook

We can’t undo the past. But we can repeat the past. Indeed, we do repeat it – until we take the hard look back and make the courageous changes needed to redeem the past.

Biblically anchored, historically accurate and spiritually profound, We Confess! The Civil War, the South, and the Church takes readers on a deeply personal journey back in time:

• revealing what we in the conservative US church culture haven’t wanted to see about our Deep South roots;
• showing how the unresolved past still fetters our churches, our families and our hearts;
• calling us out from entrapment in a false identity to become who we truly are.
