Angels by Ed Rocha

After a powerful encounter with the Spirit of God, Ed Rocha’s life and vision were changed forever. He began to see the supernatural with his own eyes, including healings, signs, wonders and angels. In this rich, biblically grounded book, Rocha, an international healing ministry leader, invites readers to join him on a breathtaking adventure, filled with supernatural experiences. Through faith-inspiring stories of real-life angelic encounters and a deep exploration of Scripture, you’ll better understand the power of angels to bring healing, strength and deliverance.

God has always been at work in our world, sending His angels to interact and intervene in history. It’s time for us to open our eyes, embrace their presence and join in their work!

Praise for Angels-God’s Supernatural Agents:

“It is essential for all believers to understand angels in order to partner with them to move into the greatest explosion of miracles and soul harvest in history. This is your how-to book.”
-Sid Roth, host, It’s Supernatural!

“Ed Rocha is an amazing minister, pastor, healing evangelist and church planter. I have known him for over a decade, during which time he served as my translator in Brazil. He is a student of the ways of God. He is sensitive to the Holy Spirit and receives revelation from God, which creates in him a strong faith for healing. I love what God is doing in his life, and in his church in Rio de Janeiro, Pier49. I am proud to have Ed as one of my spiritual sons, and proud to have a spiritual son who is an author. He is a great storyteller, making the experiences he shares come to life for the reader. I recommend Angels-God’s Supernatural Agents.”
-Dr. Randy Clark, overseer, Apostolic Network of Global Awakening

“Ed brings to us a much-needed understanding of angels and God’s purpose in sending them to us. Angelic activity is part of the supernatural realm we are to operate in. Our understanding of this realm and how angels are sent to us by God is vital to bring the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.”
-Cal Pierce, international director, Healing Rooms Ministries

“As one who was fished out of a flooding river at age three by an angel, I was already warming up to Ed Rocha’s new book. Angels-God’s Supernatural Agents is not simply a topic of systematic theology, but an encouraging faith-builder, almost on the level of an angelic visitation itself. Just as spiritual gifts are part of God’s New Covenant (see Acts 2:39, citing Isaiah 59:21), so angels are part of God’s loving covenant with us to protect, feed, inform, warn, rescue and heal. Like the charismata, angels are to be sought as servants from God for our provision. This book engagingly explains and encourages angelic ministry in all its marvelous diversity. This is a great gift for friends who think the only angel they will ever encounter is atop their Christmas tree.”
-Jon Ruthven, Ph.D., D.Min., professor emeritus, Regent University; author, On the Cessation of the Charismata, What’s Wrong with Protestant Theology? and more

Praise for Bible Studies on Mark:

“Though sometimes neglected as if it were an abridged version of Matthew, the Gospel of Mark opens up before us beautiful snapshots of our King in action. Bill Boekestein’s crisp writing, practical orientation, and engaging questions make this book an ideal guide for studying the good news of the kingdom of God.”
-Rev. Joel Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“The Gospel of Mark is all about that—the Gospel. In this short guide through this shortest of Gospels, Bill Boekestein opens up for us the person and work of Jesus Christ, who is the Gospel incarnate. You will grow in your knowledge, love, and desire to serve Jesus through these pages.”
—Rev. Daniel R. Hyde

“Studying the holy Scripture nourishes the humble soul. In this study of the gospel of Mark, Boekestein dishes up a delicious and nutritious spiritual meal. In fact, he often packs more food for the soul into a short paragraph than many others do in an entire page. Take and read… or perhaps I should say, take and enjoy your meal.”
-Dr. Jason Van Vliet, Professor of Dogmatics, Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary

The Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on Bible Studies on Mark by William Boekestein (Reformed Fellowship, 2016).

Reviewer: Mark Buzard
Rating: 5 Stars

“As Boekestein notes in his introduction there is a great danger of taking our eyes off of Jesus and the Gospels are vital for keeping our eyes on Christ. So if you are looking for a book that fixes yours eyes upon the person and work of Christ this is one such book that should commend itself to you.”

Reviewer: Aaron Meservey
Rating: 4 Stars

“The book was a thoughtful and an engaging read. I agree with Jason Van Vliet’s statement on the back cover of the book that “Boekestein dishes up a delicious and nutritious spiritual meal.” A recurring point that I appreciated was that we should not idolize people’s approval.”

Whether you use it to enhance your own personal Bible study, to help as an aid in sermon preparation, or to lead a small group through the Gospel of Mark, Boekestein’s book will be a great addition to your library. I pray that, as you use it, you would have a better understanding of Mark’s Gospel, which would ultimately give you a better understanding of who Jesus is and what He has done, enabling you to more fully set your eyes on Him as your Lord and Savior.”

Reviewer: Rick Lucian
Rating: 5 Stars

“This is a commentary that does not fit the academic mold because the author was careful to format this as a conversation-based bible study. However, in no way does that diminish the scholarly truths of the Gospel of Mark. But the author was careful to tread in both waters of exposition and application.”

Finding Forgiveness: Discovering the Healing Power of the Gospel Book Cover Finding Forgiveness: Discovering the Healing Power of the Gospel
Stanley D. Gale
Reformation Heritage Books
November 25, 2016

Product Description

If you are a Christian, you have personally experienced the joy of sins forgiven and reconciliation with God. Forgiveness, writes Stanley Gale, “is a divine accomplishment to be savored and offered to others.” Forgiveness is the most basic of Christian graces, yet the topic raises many questions, including these:

  • Is it biblical to “forgive and forget”?
  • Why do we need to confess our sins if they are already forgiven?
  • How do we actually go about forgiving someone?
  • Does the Bible give a place to forgiving ourselves?
  • What does life look like after forgiveness?

In Finding Forgiveness, you will discover practical answers to these questions and many others. With pastoral warmth, the author will help you see how the awe of the gospel dawns anew for those who apply forgiveness and experience the healing of a burdened spirit or broken relationship.

Treasures in Dark Places by Leanna Cinquanta
Thank you for your interest in reviewing Treasures in Dark Places by Leanna Cinquanta. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

Skinny-armed toddlers with wide, hungry eyes and bloated bellies watched us beneath thatched eaves, a black string around their waists and heavy mascara smeared around their eyes to fend off the demons. Their rescue and freedom were why I had come. But now that I was here, what was I, one small woman, to do in the face of overwhelming poverty and evil?

From the beautiful Himalayas to the mighty Ganges River of northern India, a soul-stealing spiritual darkness ravages the land. More than 35 million children are orphaned and destitute. Over 25,000 girls are abducted annually for sex trafficking. Dictators and loan sharks force millions into physical slavery while witch doctors and centuries old idol worship imprison even more in spiritual bondage.

God’s heart breaks for them. And in His great mercy, He called one unlikely young woman to shine His light in this dark place.

With warmth and disarming honesty, Leanna Cinquanta shares the rigors, heartaches and miraculous experiences of living hand-in-hand with God, invading the blackness and liberating His treasures. You will be amazed and encouraged at how the supernatural love of Jesus can transform not just one heart, but the hearts of a nation.

Praise for Treasures in Dark Places:

“Do you ever get tired of mundane, lifeless ‘Churchianity’ and long for the God of the Bible to burst out of man-made boxes and into action? If so, wait no longer. Leanna Cinquanta has experienced the compassion and power of God at work today and has captured some of those stunning stories in her book. Your heart will burn and your faith will be activated as she takes you on her journey of mystery and revelation, trial and triumph.”
-James W. Goll, bestselling author; founder, God Encounters

“Dr. Leanna Cinquanta is a spiritual daughter of mine, and I could not be more excited about what God is doing through her to spread the Gospel and rescue the broken in the nation of India. There are few more qualified than Leanna to write a book about treading fearlessly into the forgotten and dark places of the earth to reveal the light and hope of Jesus and pull out the gold in those trapped in a hopeless existence.

Treasures in Dark Places
is compelling, heart-wrenching and beautifully written. Leanna reminds us that the need in the earth may be great, but our God is so much greater. By reading Leanna’s call into ministry, her commissioning into the harvest field and ultimately her inspiring impact and transformative work in the nation of India, your faith will be awakened that you, too, are able to pierce darkness in the face of human tragedy–as 1 John 5:4 assures us, ‘Everyone born of God overcomes the world.'”
-Dr. Ché Ahn, founding pastor, HROCK Church, Pasadena, California; president, Harvest International Ministry; international chancellor, Wagner Leadership Institute

Leanna CinquantaAbout the Author:  Leanna Cinquanta (PhD, Regent University) is the founder of TellAsia Ministries and part of an international apostolic team. Through her influence, more than 10,000 churches have been planted in an area that was only 5 percent Christian.

The Jesus Club by Brian BarcelonaThank you for your interest in reviewing The Jesus Club by Brian Barcelona. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

What happens when a former teenage atheist hears God’s call to do the impossible–and decides to act on it?

In this riveting true story, Brian Barcelona recounts how, just a few months after graduation, he responded to God’s directive and returned to his high school campus to preach the Gospel to the students. He had no training, no resources, and no experience. Just raw passion and obedience.

Suddenly lives began to be changed. Teens from every background were healed of suicidal thoughts, the trauma of physical and sexual abuse, drug addiction, identity crises and much more. Hearts were saved. Entire families were healed. The Jesus Club’s numbers grew, and soon other schools joined in. From one simple act of obedience, thousands of teens were, and still are, letting Jesus heal their lives.

And this is only the beginning of the story! God is moving powerfully in our nation’s high schools. And if you are willing, you, too, can be part of the revival that is transforming a generation.

Praise for The Jesus Club:

“The story of how God has used Brian Barcelona in high school campuses through One Voice Student Missions is one that has changed the lives of thousands of students across the country. I personally have seen and believe that now more than ever there is a window of opportunity that we must seize to reach the youth of this nation right where they are every day. The awakening of local churches to reach youth is happening like never before, and everyone is asking, “How do we reach the next generation?” One Voice Student Missions is wisely and strategically using the local church as a focal point to sponsor the mission field where the Good News still can be shared. While that window remains open, now is the time of salvation and discipleship! This book is one I would recommend you read—to get inspired but also to realize what is possible and that you can live out these stories in your city campuses as well. You will be moved and challenged, not to just sit back in the church seats as “consumers,” but to be moved, to go and love students unconditionally. If you’re a student, pastor or leader, I encourage everyone to see this model and book of testimonies as a way that we as the body can be unified in our vision to see Jesus lifted high for all to see!”
-Nick Vujicic, president, Life Without Limbs

“The Jesus Club will ignite within you a greater passion for Jesus and an unstoppable faith to see God move in the lives of students.”
-Banning Liebscher, founder and pastor, Jesus Culture

“This book can only be understood as a storyline straight from the pen of the Author of our faith. Read, and watch hope explode in your soul. God’s not done with America!”
-Lou Engle, co-founder, TheCall


Brian Barcelona and FamilyAbout the Author:
  Brian Barcelona is the founder of One Voice Student Missions. A leader on the forefront of youth evangelism, Brian is calling the high school students of America to surrender their lives to Jesus and calling the Church to our nation’s most unreached mission field: public high schools. Brian lives with his wife, Marcela, and daughter in Los Angeles, California.
