One Nation Without Law by Phil HotsenpillerThank you for your interest in reviewing One Nation without Law. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

A rising tide of lawlessness is sweeping the world.

The daily reports of evil and injustice are growing in number and intensity, causing most of us to freeze in fear or sink into hopelessness. But did you know all this was foretold? And that you can still live a life of hope?

In these pages, pastor and end-times expert Phil Hotsenpiller will help you begin to connect the dots between biblical prophecy about lawlessness and current events. As you begin to see God’s perspective, you can–and will–see what purpose these struggles serve in His plans. You’ll be able to confront your fears and frustrations, gain a hopeful outlook for the future and move forward with confidence, because God is still in control. Here are practical, everyday ways you can respond with faith, hope and love to the daily lawlessness you see around you–and make our world a better place until the return of Jesus Christ.

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.

"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

The Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on The Jesus Club: Incredible True Stories of How God Is Moving in Our High Schools by Brian Barcelona (Chosen Books, 2017).

“I really enjoyed learning how God has worked through Brian. Thousands of students in both northern California and Los Angeles have become followers of Christ through his ministry. Inspiring stories of the different ways God brought this about fill this book. Gang members, atheists, and ordinary kids alike have turned their lives over to Christ after hearing the good news about Him. The author’s enthusiasm for making this happen in all the high schools in America is exciting, and I highly recommend this easy to read, uplifting 5-star book.”
Reviewer: Becky Isaac
Rating: 5 Stars

“This is the generation that we need to get into our churches, to make them into our future leaders.. If one man can turn his obedience to God into a success like this why can’t we all?”
Reviewer: Mary Ann Bell
Rating: 4 Stars

“It’s sad to see so many high schoolers choosing to follow their peers in a direction that does not lead them to Christ. Bombarded with social media and selfish ideas, many adolescents choose a path that exalts self rather than Christ. It was encouraging to read this testimony book, The Jesus Club, where Brian Barcelona tells of the good things the Lord did with a surrendered heart and a group of teenagers.”
Reviewer: Cindy Cook
Rating: 4 Stars

“God’s usage of Brian Barcelona to minter to youth in their own context gives me renewed strength as I minister to the youth in my own area on their turf in their context.”
Reviewer: Dan Doll
Rating: 4 Stars

“I loved this book and would recommend it for every youth worker. And I would also recommend it for all believers who want to see where the Holy Spirit is moving right now in America. Students are not all lost and narcissistic instead God is on the move, and I for one want to join Him. You should too.”

Thank you for your interest in reviewing Angels-God’s Supernatural Agents: Biblical Insights and True Stories of Angelic Encounters by Ed Rocha. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.
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
