Persecuted I Will Not Be Silent by Robin Parrish Based On a Daniel Lusko Film

Persecuted by Robin Parrish is a fictional work which speaks on the subject of the persecution of Christians. It is based on a film by Daniel Lusko. John Luther had been falsely accused and then charged with a crime that he did not commit that of raping and murdering a young teenage girl. The plot thickens as John tries to figure out who was behind all of this and why. John struggles to bring the truth to the forefront and clear his reputation. All John wanted was a simple life of walking out his calling as an evangelist by sharing the Gospel and to enjoy a quiet and simple life with his family. I enjoyed reading this book and can imagine something like this happening in real life to Christians, however, it did not keep my attention very well. Some things seemed to far fetched to be believable. I am glad I read it though. I received this book for free from Bethany House publishing in exchange for a free book review through their book review program. I was not required to write a favorable review.

The Fearless Life by Jentezen Franklin

An Excellent book written on fear and how to overcome it victoriously. Who of us has no fear? I believe that we can all relate to fear. I know personally that fear is an area where I need to overcome as fear has kept me, time and time again, back from going forth in the assignments I believe that God has given to me. As I began to read this book I prayed this prayer which Jentezen Franklin has presented in this book: “Heavenly Father, I want to give You my fears. I turn my whole life over to You. I want to live in faith. I believe; help my unbelief! Fill me with courage, and furnish me with faith. I need it. I want to walk in Your will.” (In Jesus name I pray, amen) Jentezen Franklin shares his testimonies throughout his book. He also gives sound, scriptural advice. This is not my first Jentezen Franklin book that I have read nor will it be my last. I love reading anything and everything that this man writes as I believe his words are inspired by the Holy Spirit and give to him to share with us all. I believe these writings are life changing if they are taken to heart and applied. I recommend this book!
