”An Amazing God” is not just another conversion story about how a sinner made a 180 degree turn on the wrong path travelled through life. In fact very little personal information is exposed. Rather this book is a compilation of the revealed knowledge of God learned through three years of active study of the Bible and numerous documents written since its composition. This book is a tool for a new evangelization. This book uses the book of Genesis as a general outline. A heavy emphasis on historical facts, figures and dates are used to confirm that God, as Jesus, walked this earth. Theological differences of the major religions are compared and contrasted especially Catholicism and the Protestant Reformists. The book’s main theme demonstrates the sole purpose of one’s life as a reunion of our soul with that of our creator at our earthly death. It explains the progression of the revealed truth to man both individually and as a society and how creation has progressed from redemption, to salvation to sanctification. The book addresses all areas of one’s life: social, political and spiritual. This book has an apologist’s flare with the ultimate goal of re-evangelizing those that have experienced God but have turned away from their religion. The book steps on the toes of those superficial professing Jews, Christians and Muslims and may present the realization that most are doomed to a painful and punishing eternity. How about you, can you tell me right now without a doubt, where your soul will reside for all of eternity when you die? Do you believe in resurrection? This book is unique in that it reveals how one achieves salvation and sanctification. It explains the transformational process by which one discards all vices and begins to live by the virtues through the power of the Holy Spirit. ”An Amazing God” should be considered a crucial self help book. With God in the forefront of your consciousness, you can begin your progression to perfection. The book will challenge those who profess a belief in God yet continue to live a life contrary to a serious faith life. The book is designed to demonstrate to atheists and believers alike that there is one, universal church established by Christ. More information can be found at http://www.newevangelization.net/.

Firefighting is combat and should be viewed as a warrior's calling. Firefighters put themselves in harm's way to protect others, a selflessness rooted in the same noble drive as the military warriors who defend our nation. This book about combat is meant to be a guide for those who seek to follow a warrior's path, the path of the fire service warrior. Today's firefighter must be a warrior who will unflinchingly put his very life in harm's way to accomplish a mission, but who is also fully informed about the path being chosen. Embracing the philosophy of the fire service warrior, and striving for the ready position--the synthesis of physical and mental readiness that allows for optimum fireground performance--can reduce firefighter injuries and fatalities. The Combat Position: Achieving Firefighter Readiness will be an invaluable tool for firefighters, company officers, chief officers, and instructors.
