DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Thriving stand-up comic and actress Yvonne Orji—best known as Issa Rae's BFF on the HBO series, Insecure—shares the secrets to living the life of your dreams.

Known for interpreting Biblical stories and metaphors to fit current times, her humorous and accessible approach to faith leaves even non-believers inspired and wanting more. The way Yvonne sees it, God is a Sovereign Prankster, punking folks long before Ashton Kutcher made it cool.

And she wants us to join in on getting bamboozled. This is not a Self-Help book—it’s a Get Yours book! In Bamboozled by Jesus, a frank and fresh advice book, Orji takes readers on a journey through twenty-five life lessons, gleaned from her own experiences and her favorite source of inspiration: the Bible. But this ain’t your mama’s Bible study. Yvonne infuses wit and heart in sharing pointers like why the way up is sometimes down, and how fear is synonymous to food poisoning. Her joyful, confident approach to God will inspire everyone to catapult themselves out of the mundane and into the magnificent. With bold authenticity and practical relatability, Orji is exactly the kind of cultural leader we need in these chaotic times. And her journey through being Bamboozled by Jesus paints a powerful picture of what it means to say “yes” to a life you never could’ve imagined—if it wasn’t your own.

Editor: Atria Books

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From Ross Mathews, the nationally bestselling author of Man Up!, judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and alum of Chelsea Lately, comes “a delightful mix of sweet and sour celebrity experiences” (Shelf Awareness) in this hilarious and irreverent collection of essays. Pretend it’s happy hour and you and I are sitting at the bar. I look amazing and, I agree with you, much thinner in person. You look good, too. Maybe it’s the candlelight, maybe it’s the booze. Either way, let’s just go with it. Keep this all between you and me, and do me a favor? Don’t judge me if I name drop just a little. Television personality Ross Mathews likes telling stories. He was always outrageous and hilariously honest, even when the biggest celebrity he knew was his favorite lunch lady in the school cafeteria. Now that he has Hollywood experience—from interning behind the scenes at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to judging RuPaul’s Drag Race—he has a lot to talk about. In Name Drop, Ross dishes about being an unlikely insider in the alternate reality that is showbiz, like that time he was invited by Barbara Walters to host The View—only to learn his hero did not suffer fools; his Christmas with the Kardashians, which should be its own holiday special; and his news-making talk with Omarosa on Celebrity Big Brother, which, as it turns out, was just the tip of the iceberg. Holding nothing back, Ross shares the most treasured and surprising moments in his celebrity-filled career, and proves that while exposure may have made him a little bit famous, he is still as much a fanboy as ever. Filled with “charmingly told” (Booklist) tales ranging from the horrifying to the hilarious—and with just the right “Rossipes” and cocktails to go along with them—Name Drop is every pop culture lover’s dream come true.

Jay, your average stoner from Portland Oregon, finds out when he's twenty-one that he is Jesus, the son of God.

Through a series of hilarious and heartbreaking adventures, he finally learns of his true identity, long after he was supposed to. His reincarnated disciples are a mixture of loveable and misunderstood characters that join Jay on a journey across the Country that leads them to Elvis, Oprah, jail, and near death experiences.

Drake Pearson, a narrow-minded 18-year-old barely enduring Missouri’s heat, is tired of feeling empty. Living conditions are about as cozy as a cardboard box, on account of his alcoholic father who can find nothing better to do than argue relentlessly with him. When Drake thinks he can’t take another blow, he is reminded daily of his mom who vanished twelve years ago. And now there’s a dead body. After a terrible accident turns into a protected secret, a twisted string of events brings Drake miles away from home to an elderly man’s front door. Every promising opportunity also brings new doubts and temptations to run away—this time for good. When the secret he has kept locked away threatens to reveal itself, Drake knows he must shield it with his very life, even if the love he has been shown undeservingly is about to be destroyed.

To show unto his servant John things ¿which must shortly come to pass.¿ Revelation, despite what many people believe or say, is not the revelation of John. The Word tells us point blank that the book of Revelation is the revelation of Jesus Christ. John was only the vessel that Jesus used to write the warning to the churches and to the saints of what the future holds for the world.Jesus is coming back. The scripture says that He is coming with clouds, every eye shall see Him, and all the people of the earth shall wail. Jesus tells us who He is: the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the Almighty.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This book is Sally Stanley's incredible journey and amazing testimony of God giving her "The Power To Go On." Stricken with a staph infection which produced large painful sores all over her body, she was rushed into surgery, where the surgeon accidentally severed the main artery to her heart, causing blood to flood her chest cavity, which resulted with her dying on the operating table. This resulted in her "after death or out-of-body experience" and miraculous encounter with The Lord, as He spoke these marvelous words, "You have been chosen by God and your work is not finished." Upon her immediate restoration, she spent weeks on a ventilator and had several months of physical therapy. Over the next several years, Sally has experienced and recovered from a fractured vertebrae, several strokes, and heart attacks. During this time period she also cared for her husband John, after he experienced seizures and strokes, which finally lead to his death on December 12, 2013. Then in May of 2014, while walking in a pedestrian crosswalk, she was suddenly hit by an automobile, suffering multiple injuries, including a shattered right shoulder and broken neck. Sally tells everyone that over the past 20 years, many miracles have happened in my life, but faith in Christ has given me "The Power To Go On." "I hope that everyone who reads this book will understand that with God, all things are possible. It is so great to know that we have Jesus walking with us each and every day."

Editor: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Just as Jesus shows us the character of God, diving deeper into the events surrounding his birth gives us a better understanding of that character. Christmas is so much more than the holiday we've turned it into. It's the birth of a promise-God's promise to redeem humankind to himself. Sending Jesus was always God's plan, and there is something for us to learn in every detail surrounding his birth. Christmas Speaks is a simple yet perceptive devotional that's broken down into easily understood segments that weave together scripture and insight, giving the reader a deeper understanding of the vast love God has for us and how we should respond to that love. Each chapter examines a different aspect of the Christmas narrative. As we come to better know the people central to this story, we can begin to apply aspects of their character to our own lives for a more meaningful relationship with God. By coming to a deeper understanding of scripture, we can see how God speaks to the world-if we have ears to listen. Reflect on the words within these pages, and receive what the Holy Spirit has for you.

Editor: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The cross of Christ is the greatest irony in the history of the universe. It is far too easy to lose track of the paradoxical details of Christ's death. Familiarity replaces what should be shock as we read through the Passion narrative. The Irony of the Cross puts the shock back in the cross by highlighting the ironies of Christ's death. Examining Mark 15:21-29, this book identifies eleven ironies of the cross that will deepen your understanding of the death of Christ and the gospel of grace. Each of these presents Jesus eschewing the prerogatives of his power for the salvation of his people. There is no other point in time when Christ was more emptied and stripped of his divine dignity, and yet there is no other place where Christ's glory is more prominently displayed.
