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

Awaken and Return to Christianity

A.M. Deigloriam releases  Return to Christianity ~ Return to Christianity by A.M. Deigloriam is a wake-up call to America, the complacent, the compromising, the slothful, and all who are disobedient to the Lord’s commands.  The book is not meant to put down anyone, but to lift up and re-focus readers on Christian values that many Americans have lost and/or take for granted.

Centered on one of the greatest commandments: Love thy neighbor as thyself - this book takes a look at the position of wealth in America and reminds people that wealth is not to be trusted in, but God who gives to all richly everything to enjoy. With that said, wealth is not meant to be spent on oneself, for purchasing expansive houses or luxury cars, but wealth is meant to help the poor. The author addresses the notion that the poor are somehow being punished for their sins and don’t deserve help. With a historical look at the original twelve apostles, the author brings readers back with scripture to the core values that this country has lived by, which we are quickly losing, as many Americans have forgotten God and living a holy life.

With sound biblical teaching and insight, this author has compiled this book to be a reminder to Americans to return back to Christianity. Also, I would go as far to say that every Christian and member of the Body of Christ should read this book. This message is really a “word” from God - and a call to honor God, to also honor all men whom are created in the image of God, revealing an avenue for repentance. (Yes, repentance – another word Americans don’t like to think of which is rarely taught from the pulpit.) 

Timely in nature, this message speaks to the greed and apathy of a compromising church, as our country seems to be straying farther away from godly policy to man-made policies that are against the core values of America and against God Himself. ~ A CBM Book Review, 10.0 out of 10.0 stars. 

This read is a highly recommended for those that desire to do good in their sphere of influence.

With an uplifting momentum, this book will help one believe and hold firm to God’s Word as one gains insight into the powerful prophetic anointing that intercessors possess and are called to use. Thus, as an intercessor one is divinely called to plead to God on behalf of another, individually and corporately.  This is the kind of prayer that changes and shapes nations, brings healing to the sick, saves the lost and so much more! This book is about seeing His Kingdom purposes come down to Earth. One will learn how to look above their circumstances and plead for Heaven to come to Earth.

A very Insightful read that will uplift your faith to soar like an eagle as one gains understanding into this monumental call from God.  Biblically sound and based on many years of experience as an intercessor and prayer warrior, the author shares what she has learned from over sixteen years in the prayer ministry as an intercessor.
