A Biblical Defense for Word of Faith Theology” is a thorough examination of God’s goodness


News Image

“No Darkness at All: A Biblical Defense for Word of Faith Theology”: a potent exploration of God’s intentions for creation. “No Darkness at All: A Biblical Defense for Word of Faith Theology” is the creation of published author Michael Maffucci, a passionate Christian and ordained pastor who has spent a lifetime studying God’s word and the Greek language through various colleges including Moody Bible Institute, Tennessee Temple University, Hyles Anderson College, and Impact University. He is currently working on a doctorate in theology from Life Christian University. Maffucci is also a loving husband and devoted father.

Maffucci shares, “One of the most difficult things to understand about the Bible is why God seems so different in the Old testament than He does in the New Testament. There are places in the Old Testament where God says, ‘I kill and I destroy.’ There are many places where God appears to be very harsh when He deals with people. For example, Uzzah died on the spot when he reached out his hand to touch the ark of God.

“The author is of the conviction that God is good all the time and is never the cause of death, destruction, or sickness of any kind. The author also believes that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. Because of his dilemma in trying to justify these two opposite paradigms, he has done this detailed study on this subject because he believes the Bible cannot contradict itself.

“Many have blamed God for their afflictions or, at the very least, they have accepted their problems as God’s will for their life. If you believe that God is doing something evil to you to teach you a lesson or to develop your faith, how can you have faith to be healed or to be delivered from any difficulty?

“Reading this book will help you see that God is good all the time and can do ‘No Darkness At All’ (1 John 1:5). Careful grammatical research is done in this book that will give you evidence to the face that there is a great difference between what God causes and what God permits. Each chapter in this work builds upon this evidence and will increase your faith in the goodness of God.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Michael Maffucci’s new book is a compelling exploration of God’s intentions for creation and man’s interpretation of those intentions.

With an impressive educational background in theological studies, Maffucci presents a comprehensive detailing of biblical knowledge on God’s objectives and base goodness.

Dr. Erdie Mae Roberts Hutchings’s newly released “Women of the Bible vs. Women of the Twenty-First Century” shares the comparisons between biblical and modern women


News Image

“Women of the Bible vs. Women of the Twenty-First Century”: a meaningful discussion about the women of the past and today’s era in relation to God’s vision for them as they continue to communicate, adapt, and reveal God’s power and existence that shall be passed down through generations and evangelize the world. “Women of the Bible vs. Women of the Twenty-First Century” is the creation of published author Dr. Erdie Mae Roberts Hutchings, a writer, an educator, a US Army veteran, a minister, and a mother of three.

Dr. Hutchings shares, “As the ruler of the world, God had chosen how to guide His people. He pointed them to two relationships: Jesus’s relationship to the Father who sent Him and His relationship to those God gave Him. God controls every breath that we take and every step that one makes. It is God that makes disappointments His appointments. God reminds woman that His delay does not mean denials; it means development.

“God’s provision had already been set for both women of the Bible and women of the twenty-first century. This helped women worship the Giver more than the gift. This is why prayer should not only be focused on God’s provision but on His vision. God stirred the spirit, being large and in charge. It was the relationship that women of the twenty-first century and biblical women had with God that opened a mirror into the condition of their heart and women’s dependence on Him. God’s delay does not mean denials; it means development.

“Women of today’s era are much different than biblical women. The twenty-first century woman is consumed with multiple obligations, duties, and responsibilities on a daily basis, sometimes all at once. Today’s women are finally stepping out of their historical role of only mother and housewife. The modern woman has a much different lifestyle with many different choices. Modern women also look, dress, and act much differently than biblical women. Women today have also evolved and continue to evolve as they adapt to change.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Dr. Erdie Mae Roberts Hutchings’s new book is an enlightening read that shows the development of women’s relationship with God over the years and the importance of constantly focusing prayer on God’s vision to guide today’s people and future generations.

Stoodt shares, “Fifteen-year-old Leo Walker is an orphan and has lived most of his life at the orphanage. That is until he finds out he’s a music mage—a person who has the gift to turn music into magic. Leo learns he comes from a secret place called Zashville. He must return there to study at a special academy for music and magic. It’s also the only place he can learn the truth about what really happened to his parents.

“In his search for the truth, it’s almost certain he will encounter the evil mage who wants to rid the world of music. Leo and his friends will have to rely on one another and their faith in the Lord to get them through.

“Will Zashville be where Leo finally finds the place he belongs, or will returning there be the biggest mistake of his life?”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Brenda Stoodt’s new book is an intriguing story that makes readers appreciate the power of music and the songs of encouragement that bring positivity and comfort in the lives of people.

Libby Thomas’s newly released “A Wonderful, Merry…Happy Birthday, Jesus…Christmas” is an extraordinary picture book for both children and the young at heart


News Image

“A Wonderful, Merry…Happy Birthday, Jesus…Christmas”: a cheery adventure of Mrs. Clause and the elves as they prevent the loss of Christmas’s true spirit. “A Wonderful, Merry…Happy Birthday, Jesus…Christmas” is the first creation of published author Libby Thomas, a member of Murphy Bible Church which is now MountainView Church, a writer and poet at heart. She resides in Murphy, North Carolina with her husband, Tom, and wrote this book for her grandchildren and the next generations to come.

Thomas shares, “Something like this had never happened in Santaland before! Mrs. Clause tells of one Christmas Eve delivery that almost wasn’t. A time when an expected joyous time for children around the world just might not take place. Would the giving of gifts to children come to a halt? And just how could the elves and Santa prevent this from happening? There was a ripple in the atmosphere surrounding the North Pole they had never felt before. Whatever it was, it had to be taken care of really soon. If not, the truth and spirit of Christmas could slip away forever!

“THE TRUTH OF CHRISTMAS MUST NEVER BE LOST.

THERE IS A VERY GOOD REASON FOR THIS SPECIAL DAY.

REMEMBER IT AND ALWAYS SHARE IN THE LOVE IT BRINGS.

“Betsy Henn has been a lifelong resident of Murphy, North Carolina and is a well-known artist in the area. The author saw her work displayed at an arts and crafts fair in downtown Murphy not long after she began writing her story and thought how wonderful it would be if she would illustrate it. When she asked her once the story was finished, she was delighted and felt privileged that she said yes. Her own story was on the front page of the local newspaper and her artwork is displayed at the Murphy Art Center (M.A.C.) in downtown Murphy. As well, she has displayed and sold her artwork at the well-known John C Campbell Folk School annual fall festivals for over forty years. She is a local treasure.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Libby Thomas’s new book is a wondrous work that teaches the children the real essence of Christmas.

Author Paul Niles’ newly released “Walking with Hope” is a powerful story of one man’s recovery from being shot seven times


News Image

“Walking with Hope”: a poignant narrative of the author’s life. “Walking with Hope” is the creation of published author, Paul Niles, a jack of all trades who lives life with a positive outlook.

Niles shares, “I was in tears at this cross on top of this mountain in Riverside, California, and asking the Lord to give me back my mother and family. You see, I came from a broken home. We are all over the states. Then I saw flashes of light in the clouds like he heard my prayers.

Then I found myself in the hospital after being shot seven times! Twice in the back of my head and once in the heart! It was a professional hit. Someone didn’t like me very much. I thought I did something bad to end up in hell!

My whole family was back together for a short time—my sister and her family, my brothers on both sides of my parents, my aunts and uncle, my stepfather, and most of all, my mother! Now, I say that’s a miracle if ever I heard of one!

The Father is here. He exists in every one of us. In this book, I will show you how to hear from him, the All Mighty! You just have to let things be. ‘Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be, speaking words of wisdom, let it be!’

I tried a lot of different lifestyles before I was awakened by the Lord after being shot seven times. I mean, I was running wild without a care in the world! Well, I’m finally on the right path he had led me on. It was all for a reason, and that reason is to prove that there is a Lord named Jesus Christ!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Paul Niles’ new book is an engaging exploration of the author’s life experiences.

With a conversational approach, Niles shares personal stories of family, faith, and recovery following an extremely debilitating attack suffered by the author.

Uncovering the Mystery Behind Election Prophecy Failure of 2020


News Image

We cannot force God’s hand to obey our desire. Self-directed will is not prophecy, but represents human desire.

Rev. Victor Vidal’s new book, “How Are the Mighty Fallen?” discusses the reasons behind the prophetic failure of election results by some Evangelical pastors. He explains the reason that led to the false prophecy and offers solutions.

The book outlines different challenges within the church regarding apostasy, false doctrines, worshipping of idols, conspiracy theories, and the danger of preaching the gospel of politicians instead of the gospel of Christ.

In view of the challenges facing the church today, the author is concerned about Christians in different churches who believed in the uttered prophecy now faced humiliation from the outside due to the failed prophecy. Donald Trump lost the election of 2020 contrary to the prevailing prophecies among the Evangelical Christians who supported him. Some of these hurting members have already left the church. Some may not believe in Biblical messages any longer. Another group branded Christian preachers as liars based on the fight that erupted on social media and the break-in into the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC.

The author urged Christian preachers about the importance of preaching the authentic message of God of the Bible and not that of politicians. He stresses the need to make corrections from the false prophecy uttered about the election of 2020. Admit mistakes were made and apply correction before the congregation instead of insisting that God is wrong and their prophecy is accurate. “You cannot defend false prophecy, a lie is a lie!” said the author.

The book warns about the danger hanging over any preacher or person who continues to lie about God from the self-made prophecy not instructed by God.

Bible warned: “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. A heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief. A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren” – – Proverbs 6:16-19.

This is not a political book. It is a book that discusses issues in the church and how Christian preachers have the responsibility to preach the truth of God, lead members to spiritual worship, and stay away from the lies of the devil.

Due to the prophetic failure of the election prediction of 2020, all Christian preachers, especially the Evangelicals, need to go before their congregations and apologize for leading them astray. Our mission in the kingdom is not to idolize any politician like the Evangelical Christians have done in the past four years. Christian preachers are supposed to preach to both saints and sinners.

We also need to end this division created in the church when we divide people between those we agree with and call them saints, and those we disagree with and call them sinners. Jesus did not condemn sinners like the woman caught in an affair, but preached to both saints and sinners. He knowns, there is no human being who is a perfect saint before God. We all strive to get better and better each day, learn to love others as Christ loves them, and walk in the Spirit of the Holiness of God.

Practical Demonstrations of the Fruit of the Spirit” is a nostalgic and inspiring tale


News Image

“Papa Was a Pastor, and Mama Was a Minister: Practical Demonstrations of the Fruit of the Spirit”: a private look into the lives of a family raised in the church. “Papa Was a Pastor, and Mama Was a Minister: Practical Demonstrations of the Fruit of the Spirit” is the creation of published author Nancy McDaniel, who has been married to husband, Captain Don, for fifty-seven years. Together, they have two sons who wed beloved daughters-in-law and graced them with four grandchildren.

McDaniel shares, “Curl up in a cozy corner with a collection of experiences from a preacher’s kid (PK) viewpoint. These stories have simmered for over twenty years in scribbled form, squeezed out between life’s more pressing responsibilities. Papa always thought if he could not do the job at a church in two years, it was time to move to another church. So we girls had many fresh adventures and met many different kinds of people in the ten churches he served while we were growing up. Our parents taught us biblical principles by their example in life situations. They walked the talk before it was a popular phrase. They demonstrated the fruit of the Spirit in their daily lives. Sit back and experience life adventures through the eyes of a PK.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, McDaniel’s new book is an enjoyable account of the author’s family and the ministry they taught.

The personal anecdotes found within are a pleasant perusal of the lives of a family who lived and loved within the many churches they encountered.
