The Straight to the Heart commentary series brings greater accessibility to the Bible so that people can understand the message that the Holy Spirit inspired the authors to write. It aims to get people reading so that they can hear God’s voice for themselves; it will challenge them and provide a springboard into a deeper relationship with the divine. In Straight to the Heart of Solomon we learn from Proverbs, Song of Songs, and Ecclesiastes that life only works God’s way. That’s what Solomon teaches us in the book of Proverbs and it’s what he celebrates in his risqué Song of Songs. Sadly, Solomon wrote Ecclesiastes in his old age as a record of what happened to him when he failed to follow his own advice. He warns us from experience that life really does only work God’s way. The series will cover the whole Bible in 25 volumes to be published through 2015. Previously published volumes include Genesis, Moses, 1 & 2 Samuel, Matthew, John, Acts, Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, and Revelation. “Fresh. Solid. Simple. Really good stuff.” —R. T. Kendall “Phil Moore has served us magnificently.” —Terry Virgo “Most commentaries are dull. These are alive. Most commentaries are for scholars. These are for you!” —Michael Green “Think of these books as the Bible’s message distilled for everyone.” —Adrian Warnock

You can win over your temptations! If you want to walk in fullness and step into your purpose, you must stop pandering to your own lusts and cravings. Jerry Potter explains how to subdue them and renew your mind with the mind of Christ. "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." -Matthew 16:24, NIV These words were an invitation, from Christ to His disciples, to surrender to God’s will for their lives, and enter a new dynamic relationship with Him. Each section of this book deals with Christ’s words, and how we should give up our self-will and receive the keys to the kingdom of God. The first section of the book uses the story of Elijah and Elisha to reveal the seven steps of self-denial. Their journey shows how God deals with our self-life. God’s purpose is to anoint us with His spirit to finish the ministry of Jesus on earth, just as Elisha finished the ministry of Elijah. The other section of the book uses the beatitudes as an example of what the Christian life is like when God enters our lives. He has given us a picture of a life blessed by the Holy Spirit in the beatitudes. About the Author: Rev. Jerry Potter has spoken and taught in seminaries and major churches around the world. He held a conference in Sweden for Lutheran pastors, and published a book in Sweden titled Upon This Rock. After becoming an ordained pastor, Jerry became the assistant pastor of Evangel Temple in Pensacola, Florida. He became pastor of Elberta Assembly of God in Elberta, Alabama, where Jerry felt his call into evangelism. He is now the pastor of New Life Fellowship in Columbus, Mississippi.

The Day the Grid Went Down

The Day the Grid Went Down is a compelling novel about what could happen to the world should a truly catastrophic economic collapse occur. The book is largely based on the true-life experiences of author David J. Nicks and other real-world events, such as the partial economic collapse of 2008. Using the 2012 elections as a point of departure, The Day the Grid Went Down spins off into a cautionary tale of fiction that draws persuasive parallels between where we might currently be heading and prophecies from the Bible. Fact and fiction interweave throughout the book as Nicks juxtaposes his own story with an imagined, but very feasible, scenario involving a total economic collapse and the worldwide chaos that would likely ensue as a result. Author David J. Nicks is a South Carolina native who works as an insulator, specializing in nuclear plants and fire protection systems. Although he has written other books in the past, The Day the Grid Went Down is the first that he's had published. It was inspired by current events that in the author's opinion, present the very real possibility of an impending economic collapse. Publisher's website: http: //sbpra.com/DavidJNick
