CBM Christian Book Reviews, A Must Read For Children



Amy B. Crowe teaches valuable lessons of obedience and safety to young children, instilling in them a desire to follow directions from their parents. Highlighting safety rules such as what to do when a stranger comes to your door, giving out privileged information, the importance of obeying your parents, even if it doesn’t seem important to you and not to make judgments upon others’ differences highlights just some of J.J.’s life-lessons after he is changed by a catch thrown by his sister (out of all people). Cute, funny and wholesome, this story offers a balanced look at discipline with a loving touch, opening the way for parents and children to softly talk about the importance of safety and following the rules.
A Must Read - CBM Christian Book Reviews

This story will delight parents, (and make kids and parents alike chuckle). Little J.J. is sweet and sincere and he just can’t believe some of the messes that landed him into time out, time away from video games and grounded him for a month. Written from J.J.'s perspective, we find the inner-workings of a little boy learning about life. The author invites you into the story from the beginning and readers will be captivated by J.J. as he begins his story while having his head stuck between the rails of a staircase.

This book quickly became one of my favorite books for children, as the author encompasses facets of sound parenting that embrace communication in a fair and calm manner without guilt and condemnation. Children will learn from J.J. the reason why it is important to listen and do what your parents say the first time.

The Importance of Stewardship

Order your copy of Back to Eden at Amazon or in Kindle. Be sure to visit the author at Dr. Simon Thiessen

Dr. Simon Thiessen gives readers an insightful and thought-provoking book that offers a systematic Biblical approach to the issues of wealth and poverty. With several key concepts, the author speaks broadly of the evangelical movement that divides into two basic groups:  

One group stresses the personal relationship with Jesus Christ while ignoring their social responsibilities to the poor and the other that stresses both a personal relationship with the Lord that encourages, a practical evidence of their faith as expressed in our responsible stewardship of our entire life. Beginning from Creation to the Fall of man, the author takes readers on a discovery through the Bible from Old and New Testament text that reveals a fascinating understanding of Scripture when it comes to becoming prosperous, what it means to live life abundantly and God’s structure of wealth. As the author states, Our purpose is to arrive at a perspective about wealth and poverty which is in accordance with scriptural teaching.

  • Book Review by CBM Christian Book Reviews
  • 10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Within this, and by combining academic research, Christian theology and the varying facets of human nature, the world, sin and righteousness, the author shed lights on what the Church’s social responsibilities to the poor are from a Biblical viewpoint, thus answering key questions that come to mind regarding wealth and possessions. Mentioning that God has given us spiritual and natural laws that govern the universe, the author helps readers also understand fundamentals that qualify Christians to partake of the goodness of God that involves a firm commitment to covenant that must be observed. 

Such chapters as: The Creation – Fall Events, The Concept of Possession and Poverty Invaded by Creation and Fall Event, The Sinai – Covenant Event, Wealth and Poverty in the Old Testament, New Testament Wealth and Poverty, Living in Truth – Sanctification, Christ and the Rich, The Teachings of Paul and Soteriological Implications. 

These chapters further reveal Biblical truths in such a way that one will be forever enriched, offering a balanced scriptural mindset when it comes to wealth, poverty and the worship of the Lord. The book also reveals the dangers of wealth, and what it means to truly prosper.

This is a must-read for the entire Body of Christ to be made aware of truths that are within the Word of God.  With the modern prevalence of the prosperity Gospel and for the person that has questions (in regards to wealth, materialism, money, possessions, and how they relate to eternity), this book comes highly recommended. Well-written and concise, the transparency of this book will no doubt bring deep conviction while reminding Christians of the importance of stewardship with their possessions, time and influence. 

Our privilege in the service of God is not to be taken for granted -- this book brings enlightenment, education and inspiration to those who desire a true and firm commitment to the Lord.

Award Winning Screenwriter Releases New Christian Book

A delightful readFound by a single woman in an unused motel room, the baby boy seems to be nothing short of a miracle from the very beginning of his life. He is accompanied by a Bible, the Gideon Bible, hence his name. The inscription inside the Bible states: "It's a gift." Jenny relishes the role of becoming little Gideon's mother. Perhaps focusing on this little life will help her regain her own. Jenny brings Gideon to her secluded family home atop Dora Manor Mountain. 

She is so grateful to have received this precious child that, like barren Hannah in the Bible, she promises to dedicate Gideon to God, and reads to Gideon from the Bible day and night. She hides him, keeping him away from the townsfolk, the same people who killed her family . . . over a church.

Jenny starts to realize just how special Gideon is as he grows older. Gideon truly believes in the word of God, and becomes Christ-like in his ability to heal through his belief.  It starts when he blesses the vegetable garden, which then produces huge, perfect fruit. Then when Scrappy the goat dies, Gideon blesses him, and the next thing Jenny knows, Scrappy is running through the yard, quite alive. 

The Mission: Gideon knows he has a mission to fulfill. He needs to lead people to Jesus in order to save their souls. A gnarled hand. A blind eye. A club foot. A stutter. An unsaved man who dies and sees the gates of Hell, but Gideon brings him back so the man can live a purposeful life and go to Heaven when his time truly comes.

As word gets out, Jenny realizes people are going to want to see Gideon, and she will have to share him with the world, starting with the very people she's been shielding him from, the townsfolk. When they finally do all converge on the mountain, it is through Gideon that they realize it's time to put away their differences, their prejudices, and accept each other-whether black or white.  The story is told by a preacher who has run out of gas near a small church in the South. The congregation is expecting him; their late pastor told them on his deathbed that their new preacher would appear one day, having just run out of gas near the church. While the preacher has been speaking, another man has entered the church. He, too, is a pastor and he, too, has run out of gas near the church. He begins to preach, and the crowd goes wild with appreciation. This, surely, is the man they've been waiting for. Then he introduces himself: "I...killed...Gideon." 

Author RW Hahn was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He grew up in the inner-city and went to Miami Edison Sr. He graduated from Northwestern University in Radio/TV/Film with a Bachelor of Science degree. RW is an actor, director, and an award-winning screenwriter, as well.

Have You Been Diagnosed With Cancer

An 8 Step Guide

As a previous breast cancer survivor, Marianne C. McDonough, writes with passion to bring newly-diagnosed cancer patients and those who love them a strong sense of empowerment to fight this invasive disease. 

Written from a Christian perspective, the author offers readers hope through faith, prayer and trust in God, along with confidence, knowledge, strength and guidance upon hearing the diagnosis of the “C” word.

With ease and candor, she presents facts about cancer, breaks down the myths surrounding cancer and ushers in truth within an 8-step guide to begin a positive path to healing and battling cancer. Intertwining her courageous fight against cancer and the ups and downs of her fight that include emotional, spiritual and physical aspects, the author encourages newly-diagnosed patients to get real with themselves and others, offering them positive wisdom for the journey ahead after a cancer diagnosis.

The 8-step guide highlights 8 initial evaluations and/or questions that patients ask themselves during this extremely stressful and difficult time such as: What do I know about cancer and believe to be true about myself as a cancer patient? How shall I interact with others, especially family members, friends and medical providers? How can I select the best treatment protocol? How do I feel about possibly dying? Where is God in all of this? What am I afraid of? How do I deal with stress? Do I dare hope for a future?

Offering real advice for real circumstances, this book is crucial during the initial diagnosis and beginning journey when one is faced with life-changing decisions that a cancer diagnosis brings.  

With an in-depth analysis of what getting real is, the author describes an introspective journey that brings strength, sensitivity, and inner clarity to patients and helps them make positive changes. Thus, readers are encouraged to access their thoughts, beliefs and feelings in regards to a life-threatening disease, considering their own mortality, their belief system while the author vehemently urges others to fight cancer with all that is within them. Offering tools, wisdom and keen guidance, this book is key to bringing healing and wholeness during the process that provides hope and lasting positive change during what can be one of the most trying times during one’s life.

The Consequences Of A Broken World

Inner Difficulties, Selfish Ambition, Sin: The Enemy Inside: Reflections of Me by Bill Balbach speaks of unforeseen calamity that can strike. Our attitude plummets, or suddenly a harmless pastime becomes a destructive habit. Overwhelmed by the consequences of a broken world, we look for someone or something to blame, while the real enemy lurks inside. We are all victims of a fierce battle that wages within our hearts.   Could it be that we’ve lost our true identity in Jesus, only to find ourselves in a state of spiritual isolation? 

Author Bill Balbach takes an aerial shot of David and Saul’s journey, providing an intuitive glimpse into the inner difficulties we all face as we try to free ourselves from selfish ambition and to give the full authority of our lives to Jesus.   It’s time for us to be honest with the enemy that lurks within us all as we let go of our self-will and embrace God’s powerful will through Jesus. - A must read!

Why Did God send His Son Into The World

John 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to con­demn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  God does not condemn you because of His great love.
Jesus does not condemn you because He came to give you life. 

You receive condemnation (John 3:15-21) only when you refuse to accept the only plan that God has for salvation, which is receiving Jesus as your personal Savior and living for Him.  

From the very beginning, God decided that those who came to Him, should become like His Son. He wanted the Son to be the first, with many brothers. God was the one who chose you, and then called you to come to Him. He declares you “not guilty,” because of your trust in the salvation provided by His Son. God fills you with Christ’s goodness, gives you right standing with Himself, and promises you will reign with Him. 

Available in English, Spanish and Chinese

Full Of Encouragement, Inspiration and Biblical Perspectives

A CBM Christian Book Review - 10.0 out of 10.0 Stars ~ this is a must read book for every couple.

The Young Bride and Groom: A Marriage Union of Sixty Years by Lorine and Douglas Hargrave gives tribute and honor to the marriage covenant, celebrates their union and speaks of how to live happily in love with God and others. 

An endearing read that is written by a woman of faith that speaks of the true meaning of love, offering the love verse 1 Corinthians 13:13 as her foundation – “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.” (NIV) Full of encouragement, this book offers inspiration in light of the modern-day plight of widespread divorce.

Focusing others on the foundation of unity and prayer, she begins her book with a prayer of thanksgiving. As a commemoration of their sixty years, the third renewal of wedding vows is exhibited amongst life long memories and pictures (even of all their old cars which is a treat), and is themed by praises, prayer, and faith that is an encouragement for any young or long-married couple. 

Lovingly expressed and intertwined with Scripture, the author continues to present a well-written and faith-filled journey. This book is simple and a joy to read, giving sound biblical advice that is presented in a light way to family and friends, encouraging all to make God the center of all of one’s life and marriage.  With her husband of sixty years, who is a pastor, the author describes their lives and the fruitfulness that comes from abiding in Jesus and His Word. 

Topics that are spoken of are: good communication, praying together and doing something nice everyday. This is wonderful book from an elder, that after being married sixty years gives easy keys to living a healthy, content and happy life in marriage. A highly recommend read and encouragement to all who read this book depicting what a blessed union and life look like.

Author’s Instruction Speaks to Son

The choice is yours as the author reiterates that just being a “good” person will not get you to Heaven, but confessing Christ with your mouth and believing in your heart that Jesus died and rose again to pay for your sins. 

Within this, the author’s instruction speaks to sons, but to all, encouraging them to follow God, most importantly reminding them to adhere to God’s words above all else as noted in Proverbs, presenting that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. 

In Letters to My Son Gary Bowen culminated from letters the author wrote to his beloved son during his incarceration in jail. 

Endearing, each letter expresses not only his thoughts, but preaches the Gospel of Truth as the author was led to instruct his son to get back on track with the Lord. After a series of arrests, it was later revealed that the son was hanging our kids that were considered “Goths” whom are believed to worship the devil. Revealing that there are only 2 paths to follow in this world, one is to serve God, and the other is to serve Satan.

Readers will find this read inspiring and insightful. It is the hopes of the author that others will read these letters to his son and become born again. With much Biblical wisdom, the author speaks truths into the hearts of those that have been deceived into serving the Father of Lies, Satan. This book comes highly recommended as an evangelistic tool to reach out to those who are lost and/or imprisoned and/or using drugs.

Christian Author Promotions, Thinking Outside The Box

Thinking outside of the box ...

It’s a huge ocean out there online with millions of sites and millions upon millions of daily Internet users. Many times authors believe that once they publish their book and create a author’s site or page that they will become a overnight success. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. The competition is fierce and countless other authors just like you are all competing for sales.     

Without professional author promotions and tapping into that huge online ocean, it’s like trying to go fishing with one pole and no bait. You must create an online presence and market yourself as a author while promoting and marketing your book and author’s site. Networking and utilizing the power of a well established network is a must.     

That’s where targeted author promotions and book marketing comes into play. Creating a online presence is important and reaching Christian readers within the Christian Marketplace is equally important. So why go fishing for potential book lovers and sales with one fishing pole when you can use a net.

My Testimonial of the wonderful assistance received from CBM 

I guess I would begin with the surprising email I received from Smitty. It felt personal and to the point. I had two books already published, yet was at a standstill on what and how to do anything else with them. I had many questions, fears, apprehensions, and doubts about doing anything online. Never mind not knowing how to do marketing or distributing was definitely holding me back! 

Smitty was patient with me, and simply and precisely explained each step to
be taken to introduce me as a Christian Author. He not only answered all my questions, but relieved all anxieties; and I began to experience an excitement I thought I would never get back again! Thank you, Smitty, for your encouragement and patiently helping me take the next steps. ~ God bless you and CBM


Marketing Christian Books from a Christian Author Perspective

Christian Author Kirk Lewis 
Multi-published Christian Author Kirk Lewis

Soon after the release of my first book, Put Away Childish Things, I found that writing the book was the easy part. The challenge came as I began to spread the word about the book beyond my circle of friends. 

CBM Christian Book Marketing provided a degree of expertise in the field that I did not possess. Their contacts in the industry proved helpful in creating a broader presence in the Christian marketplace. 

When I released The Chase I came immediately to CBM to take advantage of their insight and knowledge to help me gain exposure much earlier in my sales process.

"Smitty and others seem to care sincerely about my success. I'm grateful for the relationship and the positive impact CBM has already made on my sales. If you get a chance to work with them, I think you will find it an overwhelmingly positive experience." Christain Author Kirk Lewis
