Fan Into Flame by Joseph Skladany – Publicist @MKWebsiteandSEO – Blitz by @RABTBookTours

Igniting A Heart for Christian Arsonism

Christian / Nonfiction / History

Date Published: July 2, 2021

Publisher: MindStir Media

As the sun rose on the Twenty First Century, it was clear that something was wrong in the stuffy and traditional confines of the American Church: the church people within the building had lost connection with the community people outside of it. In so doing, they lost their burning relationship with Jesus Christ, who came from the very throne room of God to be in relationship with those alienated from Him.

In Fan Into Flame, we follow the relational story of Peter the Apostle with Jesus: from the simple spark ignited at their first meeting, through the trials by fire over three years, to the heart wrenching failure of Peter’s denial. Throughout, the fisherman must step outside of his familiar surroundings with a bold willingness to have his weaknesses exposed, his sinfulness revealed, and his very life threatened. Peter must lose what he thought was important, gain what he could not obtain, and discover the commitment Jesus demands, the cost Jesus invites him to endure, and an incomprehensible love Jesus desires to give.

Like Peter, the church need not fear the unfamiliar or its own failures. It need only fear quenching the fire of the One who will never abandon her through both. This is the story of a true Christian Arsonist.

About the Author

Joseph Skladany is an ordained pastor and has served in the Christian and Missionary Alliance since 2011.After pastoring in Ohio for three years, he moved to the Pacific Northwest where he is currently pastoring at Ignite Alliance in Veneta, Oregon. An out-of-the-church-box thinker, he has challenged the traditions of the often ingrown, static church, preferring to direct people’s attentions to their community with an understanding of the current cultural context and armed with a sacrificial willingness to be open and fallible. Joseph has two adult children and his wife, Sandra, is a licensed counselor practicing in the Veneta, Eugene area.

afraid of the collateral damage of hurting the people she loves. Will she
find the strength to make a deal with the mad scientist Cromwell to save not

Review

Stephanie Hansen brings us a vibrant character in Sierra. Her energy is heightened in this audiobook version. She really shines through as a character.
YA Sci-Fi that brings us an adventure from start to finish that is high octane with high stakes as she is not just trying to save her family, but everyone.
This is just the first book in a series, but it does a great job of setting up the world and backstories of the characters. It will have you ready for the next one!
Originality shines through!

Salvo by Randy Higgins Ph.D. – Blitz by @RABTBookTours – Publicist @MKWebsiteandSEO

Nonfiction / Religion

Date Published: July 14, 2021

Publisher: MindStir Media

This book was written in the state of breathless Samadhi, on a cell phone. Pithy mystical aphorisms began arriving from “ourselves in the future”. These future selves have survived the cataclysm we are currently undergoing and want to extend a hand to help us through the Apocalyptic labyrinth safely to the other side. This journey is not what is expected. The price of admission to the New Earth turns out to be realization of every terror we’ve ever imagined. Turns out, it was only ourselves we were afraid of in the first place! The final reward is the acceptance and embracing of this glorious terrifying Self. What we were looking for is what is looking for us.

About the Author

Randy was born in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. After graduating summa cum laude from Virginia Tech and receiving a master’s degree in Family Therapy, he completed his doctoral degree at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, CA. By far, most of his education was delivered by the “School of Hard Knocks.” His gift is in seeing the miracle in everything, even in a tragedy — even in the current global catastrophe. He is now back in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the house he grew up in, where he is looking forward to growing old and dying. Or not.
