Major Rule: Humans shall not play god with other humans. Fresh from college, aspiring actress Liberty agrees to be the sole disciple of a minor deity and Abe Lincoln lookalike oddly named God Johnson, in exchange for a fast track to world-hunger-fighting-super-celebrityhood. Her god wears penny loafers and watches Battlestar Galactica, but as she tries to give him her heart – and a certain portion of her aura -- she breaks his Major Rule which is that humans shall not play god with other humans. He then must abandon her to the other lesser deities for their sport until she pays for her sin or dies. By the time Liberty discovers what the gods really want from her, she knows that what she wants from God Johnson is worlds away from her original plan. She must either accept the considerable and attractive sacrifice God Johnson makes for her, or leave the natural world and create her own brand of do-gooder stardom as the glamazon goddess she has become. God Johnson: The Unforgiven Diary is a 2014 IndieBRAG Medallion Honoree, chosen as a book the IndieBRAG committee members have read and would recommend to their friends.

This memoir takes a look into the heart and mind of one man who suffers from schizoaffective and bipolar disorders. Jeffrey Hochstedler’s life has seen its share of twists and turns—a culmination of the many choices and decisions made at any one time. In this memoir, he shares revelations and meditations from events in his daily life and how these occurrences shaped the man he is today. Written in diary format, Forty Days from the Diary of a Delusional Man illustrates how his mind thinks, feels, and perceives. He reveals details from many parts of his life—his birth in 1957; growing up in Indiana with his parents and brother; battling depression in his teen years; enlisting in the Army in 1981; dealing with his relationships and his schizoaffective and bipolar disorders; and finding solace in art. With many examples of Hochstedler’s art included, Forty Days from the Diary of a Delusional Man shows how he was affected by confusion and despair. But it also communicates how he leaned on art and God to survive each day.

The Excalibur of Christ is more than a book, more than a diary. It's a guide, a weapon and truth; I say this because everyone knows the story of Excalibur, but what everyone might not know is the truth of a sword. A sword is far more than a piece of metal, in the Bible and other doctrines of the world, a sword is the tongue and mind of man. However, the true mind of man is the incorruptible spirit of him, which was birth by the Most High, the true image we're in, but if you do not have that sword, you will not know although you may be forever hearing. So, now that you know the truth of the sword, this book is written with the Excalibur of Christ, because we not only war with flesh and blood. But we war with principalities of things that are unjustly done which causes the war on flesh and blood. Therefore, to fight that battle you have to be equipped with the right information and weaponry. Thus, you are given the truth of your sword, and if you think I'm not being truthful, look at it for yourself. Take the (s) off sword and all you'll have left if word, which is your thoughts and speech. So, with that being said, take up thy armor and fight a good fight that you may enjoy all that's rightfully yours in this life.

So. Think about this. Once this foreigner is brought into the House of Israel ((albeit a foreigner who emerged from the House of Israel)) and then comes to rule it, the House of Israel itself ended up becoming, in fact, a collective apostate alienated from its burning living center. In the following I acknowledge the paradox involved in what I am saying given what is said in the Gemaric commentaries about Akher. But again, think it through. What would it mean to be an apostate from an institution which itself has apostatized? In this sense Elisha ben Abbuyah becomes the model for a grand teshuvah whose contours, as we shall see, are radically paradoxical: RETURN! O BACKSLIDING CHILDREN Today -- to pick up one of those figures used in Hagigahs attempt to give cautious approval of such rehabilitation for Elisha ben Abbuyah -- Judaism is a shell whose kernel has virtually disappeared. If nothing changes nothing changes. Judaism will implode in upon itself and disappear. If you are able to see the mortal danger into which Judaism has strayed you will be able to garner the imagination to read -- as though for the very first time -- the forthcoming thrice-articulated verse-and-commentary. It was first stated by Hashem to Akher. It was then twice repeated by Akher to Meir. You need to turn the telescope around to understand its true import. Think again of the logic entailed by the apostate who apostatizes from an apostatizing Institution. Just how long will it take for you to get it? Till its too late? RETURN! O BACKSLIDING CHILDREN! [whispering for proper effect]: except for Akher It is not Akher who needs to return.

Disciples Diary is the second book in Cindees series written for women journeying to become all that God has created them to be. This edition is a collection of poems, devotional teachings, and reflective narrative, intended to encourage and to provoke thought in those discipled daughters; who may discover that they are now traveling across terrain much like the territories that the heroine in the story crosses. Her Valley of Shadows may be found sitting at the bedside of a terminally ill loved one. Her Wide Wilderness of Want may appear in the form of a bankruptcy or through the loss of a business or a home. Divorce-court proceedings may compose the walls of the dark pit of loneliness, in which the disciple daughter now sits trapped as she watches the fogs of confusion and doubt begin to roll in overhead. A rebellious child, an unfaithful spouse, and seemingly countless unanswered prayers may all contribute to the tangled briers and twisted branches of the wilderness thicket that blocks the suns warmth and light from the path on which the present-day sojourner now travels. Such is the terrain that might be traced on the map of a modern-day disciple daughter.Fearfully Female and Wonderfully Woman: Becoming All That God Created is the first book in Cindee's series and is designed to be a navigational guide for Christian women of all ages and backgrounds. While Disciples Diary is designed as a devotional collection; this book is more informational in format. Topics addressed in this study include body image, self -esteem, developing healthy friendships, growing old in a youth oriented culture, developing our spiritual gifts, and finding our place of ministry. Fearfully Female and Wonderfully Woman would be a valuable reference tool as well as a guide for individual or small group study.http: //bookstore.westbowpress.com/Products/SKU-000466986/Fearfully-Female-and-Wonderfully-Woman.aspx

The third volume of “one of the most remarkable diaries in the history of letters” (Los Angeles Times). This candid volume from the renowned diarist covers her years of struggle, and eventual triumph, as an author in America during World War II. “Transcending mere self-revelation . . . the diary examines human personality with a depth and understanding seldom surpassed since Proust . . . dream and fact are balanced and . . . in their joining lie the elements of masterpiece.” —The Washington Post “Just one page of Nin’s extraordinary diaries contains more sex, melodrama, fantasies, confessions, and observations than most novels, and reflects much about the human psyche we strive to repress.” —Booklist Edited and with a preface by Gunther Stuhlmann
