3 Must Read Non Fiction Spring Spirit Lifting Book Picks


‘Sex Scandal: The Drive To Abolish Male and Female’  by Ashley  McGuire

The above is an excerpt from the book that absolutely blew me away. Our culture—and our laws—are endorsing a worldview rooted in change. This book puts together a clear step by step guide to all the chaos that is taking off across the country over sex identification.
For instance, we’re told that:

•Expectant mothers are now “birthing individuals” and are demanding  that no sex  be mentioned to the staff of whether the child is male or female

•Coed college dorm rooms and bathrooms are great, but single-sex clubs are a campus danger

•It’s horrible for stores to have separate boys and girls clothing departments (let alone toy sections)

If you think that’s insanity, you’re not alone, but you might be surprised at just how widespread—and successful—this lunatic campaign has become. There are whole recorded instances where mothers seeking simple clothing have been alienated because the wished to dress their daughters in frills. The book was an eye opener that you must read to believe. It will brig upon the question: How far is too far? Is there a limit too how much you can ask society to erase identity? I actually sped through this book with my mouth wide open asI tried to make sense of all he things happening across the nation.

‘Made For More’ by Manna Ko

In 10 countries now, Made For More receives testimonies of its reader’s lives being changed by a hope they never knew. From smaller towns in Africa, to farmlands and urban centers throughout North America and Asia, the stories of hope and overcoming are shared via social media, emails and letters. Made For More invites the reader to journey through one woman’s story about overcoming adversities and step into the belief that we are all made for more. Author, Manna Ko, is spreading this message all over the world through speaking engagements, workshops and events. Next month, Made for More will be release as an audiobook performed by the author and a full cast.

Made For More is an autobiographical novel of a little girl trapped by culture, convention, rules, societal expectation, abuse – and of the woman who had to overcome it all. To judge our lives before we have seen how it all unfolds, Manna writes, is like reading the first few chapters of a book and then saying how the story is going to end. The pain in our lives may not always make sense, but it is there for a purpose, if we will only keep going – and if we only keep believing.

“For those of you who have always felt like an outcast, for those who have never felt like they belonged, or who have felt unworthy of life, may this book not only help you resolve some of the events that have shaped you, I pray it will ignite the fire in your heart for your purpose and calling once again.”  Manna said with a gentle and kind smile. She went on to say; “We’re so humbled and grateful to be able to bring light and hope to people who didn’t know that things could be better.”

The Historical Reliability of the New Testament: The Challenge to Evangelical Christian Beliefs by Craig Blomberg

Questions regarding the reliability of the New Testament are commonly raised among modern biblical scholars and popular media alike. Drawing on decades of research in a fresh, comprehensive defense of the New Testament’s reliability, distinguished professor and New Testament scholar Craig Blomberg addresses nearly all of the major objections to the historicity of the New Testament in one comprehensive volume, The Historical Reliability of the New Testament: Countering the Challenges to Evangelical Christian Beliefs.
Blomberg contends with issues such as the transmission of the text, the formation of the canon and the Gospels, alleged contradictions among parallels, the relationship between Jesus and Paul, supposed Pauline forgeries, unique problems associated with miracles, the value and status of Revelation, and many more. His research is given in a balanced, fair, and accurate manner, revealing where he believes the historical evidence points, which is consistently in a most faith-affirming direction. Presenting historical corroborations of details from all parts of the New Testament throughout the text, The Historical Reliability of the New Testament marshals the latest scholarship in responding to objections, while remaining accessible to non-specialist.
