U Turn, God Turns

"U Turn, God Turns" by Michael Vincent Robinson

Just before dawn, the stench of mangled metal sweltered and stifled into the air from beneath the bridge. The disastrous car crash finds the bloody and traumatized Michael Vincent Robinson’s life expiring in his labored breathing, but God rescues him from death. Being saved for purpose and destiny was not enough for him to exit the covert boulevard life that held him captive. With deliverance seemingly impossible, he retreats deeper into the illusive boulevard and into the wilds of his own mind. Desiring to change, the author’s faith and belief in God never waivers, and God changes his desires and saves him before passing the point of no return. This compelling, life-changing memoir, executed with friendliness and bold wisdom, equips readers with all they need to embark on a new life showered by God’s gifts.

Reviews: The author's candid and transparent reflections are inspiring and thought-provoking! This book is an excellent read! - Latrice C. Hankins I felt like a tourist on the journey of Mike's life as it unfolded with its many twists and turns. Mike's use of the street sign metaphor was genius and an artful way of keeping me on the hook from chapter to chapter. What a story of faith, grace, and miracles! I'm grateful that Mike had the courage to be so transparent in delivering what has been a life-changing testimony! The men who struggle with any sexual weakness will find strength to overcome as they pour through the pages of Mike's story. Mike's story further proves what Jude said in chapter 1:24 of his letter, specifically that God is able "to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—". Thanks for sharing Mike! -Eugene Brown [divider height="30" style="default" line="default" themecolor="1"]

Christianity Disproved

"Christianity Disproved" by Sig Sawyer

Christianity affects all of us, our country's laws are written to comply with it, our societal norms are dictated to by it, and bigotry that affects us all stems from it. Christianity does all this but who has ever looked to see if it is true? This is a fundamental question and no one has yet set out to prove or disprove Christianity. Until now.  From inconsistencies, absurdities, errors, contradictions and adult make-believe this book shows how the bible is false and thus that Christianity cannot possibly be true. This book examines claims in the bible against fact, and it asks deep questions of how the bible mandates that we should live. If you have ever wondered how you could know that the earth is older than 6000 years, or that Noah's flood could not possibly happen, or that the biblical creation story and ten commandments have critical flaws then this book is for you.  If you are a Christian and you have questions about your faith then this book is for you. It will set your mind at ease that you will not face judgement day and it will help free your mind from the shackles of indoctrination. If you debate with Christian friends then this is your kryptonite for Christians. If you are a woman or from a lifestyle minority then this book is for you too. Especially for you.  Voices of reason, logic and compassion are ever more important in today's complex political landscape. Read this book and understand why humanity should call time on Christianity and why we will all be the better for it.
