Mark Twain

Discover the Truth About This Beloved Author’s Battle with God

100 years after Mark Twain’s death, his secret book about God was published with the expectation society would be open-minded enough to listen. His image was carefully cultivated during his life, so he purposefully penned his true thoughts but did not release them to the public. Twain’s faith was confused and unfortunately his views strongly echo those of society today. Learn about his arguments with God, where he went wrong, and exactly where he falls within the faith spectrum. You may be surprised when you examine the evidence!


Jesus Unmasked

Who is the Real JESUS? Optional…Intolerant…Good Teacher…Nice Guy…
What is TRUTH? Everything…Nothing…Objective…Subjective…

We live in a postmodern world that has decided, “we don’t know what truth is”. Not only do we not know what truth is, we also believe the Bible doesn’t know the truth either…what a conundrum! The answer: nobody and everybody knows truth. We are all right and nobody is wrong. What?! Truth is out, “truthy” is in. Jesus is constantly “masked” by personal beliefs of who He is, the same goes for truth. Jesus Unmasked goes directly to the world’s greatest expert on Jesus Christ, Jesus Himself. Reader’s can determine if Jesus is a way or the way.


You Don't Cry Out Loud

The autobiographical story of a talented daughter of Holocaust survivors, raised in the Bronx, NY, who would find Jesus, lose her family, become an award-winning Christian vocalist, defeat cancer, found a world-renowned bluegrass gospel band with her talented children and struggle through divorce. Hopeful, inspirational and insightful account of the heartbreaking moments that have ‘proven to be her greatest opportunities of faith’.


Six Days

Today, most Bible colleges, seminaries, K-12 Christian schools, and now even parts of the homeschool movement do not accept the first eleven chapters of Genesis as literal history. They try to fit the supposed billions of years into Genesis, and some teach evolution as fact. Our churches are largely following suit.

Ken Ham, international speaker and author on biblical authority, examines how compromise starting in Genesis, particularly in regard to the six days of creation and the earth's age, have filtered down from the Bible colleges and seminaries to pastors—and finally to parents and their children.

This erosive legacy is seen in generations of young people leaving the Church—2/3 of them. Get the facts, discover God's truth, and help bring a new reformation to the Church by helping to call it back to the authority of God's Word.


Questions God Asks

God knows all things. Yet, as strange as it may seem to us, the Bible is filled with questions that God asks. These questions assist us in understanding both our Maker and ourselves. Examine fundamental assumptions about God, human nature, relationships, origins, purpose and destiny in this revealing book. Stop demanding answers from God and begin answering the questions He asks of us.
