Some of the most beautiful and moving things in this world are words. There are authors who have either experienced circumstances that they then relay to us and move us, or who have seen others experience such things. These types of ebooks can have a tremendously meaningful impact on our lives, so much so that some ebooks in this category can even change the course of our life and those around us. Imagine getting all of that value for free or for a discount. That's what eBookHounds brings you.
Definition of the "Religious and Inspirational Genre": Ebooks in the Religious and Inspirational genre are meant to capture real stories of people who have seen true, seemingly insurmountable struggle and persevered through that. The ebooks do not have to be religious to be inspirational, but there oftentimes is included an aspect of spirituality that helped the main character overcome his or her challenge. And, the challenge is oftentimes tied to change. When a reader sees that the main character of one of these ebooks can change, or is forced to change due to circumstances, that can spill over into the reader's own life.
Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Religious and Inspirational Genre are Jack Canfield et al (Chicken Soup for the Soul), Yann Martel (Life of Pi), Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist), and Viktor Frankl (Man's Search for Meaning).
*Named a Best Book of 2018 by the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, NPR, Broadly, Buzzfeed (Nonfiction), The Undefeated, Library Journal (Biography/Memoirs), The Washington Post (Nonfiction), Southern Living (Southern), Entertainment Weekly, and The New York Times Critics*
In this powerful, provocative, and universally lauded memoir—winner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal and finalist for the Kirkus Prize—genre-bending essayist and novelist Kiese Laymon “provocatively meditates on his trauma growing up as a black man, and in turn crafts an essential polemic against American moral rot” (Entertainment Weekly).
In Heavy, Laymon writes eloquently and honestly about growing up a hard-headed black son to a complicated and brilliant black mother in Jackson, Mississippi. From his early experiences of sexual violence, to his suspension from college, to time in New York as a college professor, Laymon charts his complex relationship with his mother, grandmother, anorexia, obesity, sex, writing, and ultimately gambling. Heavy is a “gorgeous, gutting…generous” (The New York Times) memoir that combines personal stories with piercing intellect to reflect both on the strife of American society and on Laymon’s experiences with abuse. By attempting to name secrets and lies he and his mother spent a lifetime avoiding, he asks us to confront the terrifying possibility that few in this nation actually know how to responsibly love, and even fewer want to live under the weight of actually becoming free.
“A book for people who appreciated Roxane Gay’s memoir Hunger” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), Heavy is defiant yet vulnerable, an insightful, often comical exploration of weight, identity, art, friendship, and family through years of haunting implosions and long reverberations. “You won’t be able to put [this memoir] down…It is packed with reminders of how black dreams get skewed and deferred, yet are also pregnant with the possibility that a kind of redemption may lie in intimate grappling with black realities” (The Atlantic).

The future is revealed through the past; where history and mystery are intertwined. "The Message for the Last Days" explains the history and progression of end time prophecies found within and outside of the Bible. It reveals the original message compared to changes over time leading to vastly different modern interpretations.
"The Message for the Last Days" explains how modern Christian culture has created numerous beliefs about end time events, while determining that there can only be one correct interpretation method based upon the original intent. Extensive research traced back to the foundation of Old Testament Biblical prophecies that carry over into New Testament passages. This trail clearly shows where it all started and where we are going from here in a logical, step by step format. The results are revealed to be vastly different than widely held Christian cultural beliefs today. The answers will be surprising to many as to the extant that modern culture has affected Christianity.
Topics include answers to these questions:
How can we know what the future holds if we don't understand the past?
Why is the Christian Church so divided with many different denominations and independent Churches? Isn’t there just one true Church?
How did the modern Church get so far removed from early Church beliefs as clearly stated in the New Testament and by the early Church fathers?
What are the original prophecies in the Old Testament about the end times and how are they repeated in the New Testament?
Does the nation of Israel have anything to do with end times?
What is the true meaning of the Gospel and salvation?
All of these questions are answered by a thorough examination of various interpretation methods used by different belief systems. Incorrect interpretation of the Bible is the core issue behind diverse Church beliefs so understanding the root cause will shed light on why there are so many theories today.
“The Message for the Last Days” explains six different Biblical interpretations then reveals a unified interpretative approach.
There is no religious association or affiliation with any denomination, Church or other organization to this book. It is the work of independent research outside of any bias within sects.
KJ Soze is an independent publisher that provides detailed Biblical research of complex topics. This new book cuts across various Church and denomination lines to find unity and clarity for those who may hold differing beliefs .
Imagine if every church were a community of believers dedicated wholly to God and growing together as followers of Christ.
Is the atmosphere in your church one of peace or contention? Of joyful sacrifice or selfish ambition? It’s easy to get distracted by the problems in your church brought on by sinful and self-centered living.
1 Corinthians provides a guide for unity, service, and interaction with worldly culture. If any congregation knew about problems, it was the church in ancient Corinth. Yet, these principles are as relevant and helpful today as they were for the early church.
In this practical, challenging book, you will discover:
– How to navigate the tricky relationship between the church and our the culture
– How to answer questions about rights, preferences, and gray areas among believers
– How to protect and promote unity in the church
– Why love and truth rank higher than liberty and individualism
Each chapter concludes with thought-provoking questions and a suggested action step so you can apply these truths to your own church community, ministry, and personal walk with God.
God calls us not only into community with other believers, but unity as well. With community comes great challenges, as we are all sinners. Church Undivided details God’s vision for unity in His church and Paul's guidance to create it within our own churches.

You know there's more to life than what you're experiencing now.
But how do you go deeper?
Life today moves faster than it ever has before, and perhaps you're feeling the toll. You work all day, raise your children, slip in activities with your family and friends, and maybe take a few moments for yourself. But despite having a full life, you don't feel fulfilled.
Robert Commodari has been there. A husband, father of three, and a real estate professional, he lived frantically, moving through his days at ninety miles an hour and yet never feeling like he was getting anywhere. Desperate for change, Rob slowed down to reflect on the kind of man he wanted to be, and he had an epiphany: If he sought more meaning in his life, he had to start by focusing on what his experiences, big and small, meant in the greater scope of his existence rather than just rushing through each day blindly.
This was his first step on the path of awareness.
Awareness is not something that comes naturally. It takes work and mindfulness. In Better Than You Think, Rob uses his own experiences and stories to explain how a daily awareness practice will help you:
As you develop your own awareness with Rob as your guide, you will be inspired. Every day will bring new revelations about who you are and an understanding about who you are becoming. You will find peace with yourself and others, reducing the conflict and stress in your life. You will feel a deeper connection to God and your personal desires and passions, allowing you to confidently share your wisdom with friends and family.
When you are aware of your experiences and their meaning, you will find the satisfaction and joy you seek. Begin your journey to a more fulfilled life today.
We have become so dogmatic in our own beliefs that when they don’t come to fruition or we find them to be a hoax, our journey can come crashing down with doubt, fear, and uncertainty. Many individuals think they know why they are doing what they do, where they will end up, or who they wish to be in 3 to 7 years until a catastrophic event called life occurs.
We dream to live adventurously but the fear of change confines us to only existing, which is to survive in the fog of society thus creating a disoriented/invisible sensation. The unknown causes our thoughts to imprison us as we ponder if we will ever be content or if we will forever be in debt paying bills. We work hard to be accepted instead of acknowledged. We wonder about our next occupation or what comes after retirement. We worry about things we can’t control then suffer from anxiety. Our breath is limited by our determination and imagination yet those things we can take hold of.
We exclaim at times to be lost, but to be lost is to know where X marks the spot yet unclear on how to get there. So the question is:
This book is meant to help you not only choose your path, but how to choose it wisely and magnanimously.
