Religious and Inspirational

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).

 

God's letters: 132 Capital Letters came during a Vision in 2001

by Athanasio Celia


Source of the description: Encyclopedia "Conservapedia" (article Athanasio Celia)


The publication ("God's letters")[68] is about a man who in 2001 recorded a vision, which contained 132 capital letters of the Greek alphabet that created a quadrangular shape 11 to 12. A study revealed that the text is readable in 115 different ways in the ancient Greek language and parallel it encloses depictions and symbols. Besides, it can be simultaneously deciphered mathematically. The whole process of the deciphering shows off an unbreakable mathematical, geometrical and theological coherence which in the end presents 10 big revealing texts. The vision-text, which has as its principal symbol the crucifix of Jesus Christ, turned out to be the Contemporary Revelation.

The German edition of that study ("Der Logos - Der Gottes Beweis"[69]), is published by the same Protestant publisher who also publishes the renowned "German biographical encyclopaedia covering persons related to the history of the Church".[70] And it is broadly accepted by German Christian communities who also represent it through their bookstores.[71][72] Furthermore, the book is registered in the "Index Theologicus"[73] of the University of Tübingen and in other university libraries.[74][75]

From Trauma to Trust: The Making of a Messenger

by Nancy McCready


Do you still carry trauma that you can’t seem to shake no matter what you try?

It could be because you were never meant to carry the full weight of your life.

Nancy McCready’s powerful story reveals the deepest trauma we carry is our separation from God, and none of our wounds can truly be healed until we are reconciled and dependent on God.

Nancy tells of her transformation, not just from horrific depths of pain and trauma, but also from her core sin of independence. Her story of God’s amazing redemption is the driving force behind Nancy McCready Ministries (NMM), which is focused on a powerful return to true biblical discipleship.

In this book, Nancy reveals our need for deliverance from what has happened to us and, even more, for total emancipation from the heavy yoke of our inherited, defiled state of independence from God.

Until we address both sides of this intense need, we will never live as the full-out, mature people that God has always desired and planned for us, in Christ.

In From Trauma to Trust, you will learn:

  • The true root of all your trauma
  • How to come out from under your own care and into the full nurturing of God
  • Why your healing is about the Source you go to, not the people who wound you
  • Deceptions concerning true biblical justice and forgiveness
  • How God’s relentless love for you sets you free from the bondage of human love
  • How to recognize patterns of self-dependency, self-protection, self-indulgence, and a victim mentality
  • To recognize that sexual sin comes from a deep root of bitterness
  • Your identity, purpose, life, and future in Christ through the power of the Cross

Buy a copy today and follow along as Nancy tells about her journey From Trauma to Trust. Experience a personal, powerful look at how the Cross of Jesus Christ transforms and frees you from your darkest betrayals and your strongest bondage.

Jesus Ascended. What Does That Mean?: Jesus’ Final 40-Day Lesson (Organic Faith Book 1)

by Scott Douglas


★★★  Discover the Power of the Ascension  ★★★

Something happened.

Jesus rose. But Christ didn't just rise from the dead. He ascended to Heaven.

We hear the stories about Peter and John and all the heroes of the New Testament, and they're unstoppable Christians--fearless and bold. And sometimes we wrongly assume that they just got that way. That Christ died for their sins, and bam! They're instantly changed! On the contrary, the disciples were actually quite cowardly in their actions after the Resurrection.

It wasn't until after the Ascension that they were on fire for Christ. So, what happened during the forty days? Something happened.

There's more written about Christ's ministry before his death than the events that happened after his Resurrection, but when we look at Ascension, we begin to see that there's power in small details. We begin to see that something happened after the Resurrection--something happened to transform the lives of believers and make them more than followers.

Looking at what happened after the Resurrection, and further at the Ascension of Christ, we start to see what happened to transform the followers--and in seeing this we might just be transformed ourselves.

Something did indeed happen during the forty days. Jesus was not done teaching.

This is the first book of the Organic Faith series. Each book in the series is a stand-alone title. The second book, Bethlehem, the Year Jesus Was Born, is also available.

The Message for the Last Days: Biblical and Historical Understanding of End Times

by K.J. Soze

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 .

The Obscured Journey: Rise from the Fog of Uncertainty

by Jerald Albritton


The human condition is one riddled with complexities about the path we yearn for, who we are and what we believe.

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:

What’s the Journey Toward X?

This book is meant to help you not only choose your path, but how to choose it wisely and magnanimously.

Beware of Hypocrisy: Who Is Teaching Us What?

by Robert Waligurski


Surveys have shown that only about 10 to 30 percent of modern-day Christians have ever read through the entire Bible, much less extensively studied it. Instead, most rely on their church for the majority of their understanding of the teachings of Jesus. Exclusively relying on one institution for such vital information can be dangerous, yet this seems to be a trend in our society. Beware of Hypocrisy was written to explain why this trend is dangerous, and to encourage Christians to study the New Testament, especially the Gospels, themselves.


After almost two thousand years of making assumptions and inventing doctrines, churches have subtly changed, over time, the teachings of Jesus into something different from what is presented in the Scriptures. This will be demonstrated by analyzing the teachings of Jesus regarding a given topic as presented in the Bible, and then contrasting it with what churches teach and do regarding the subject.

The book concludes with encouragement from hope in the Word of the Lord. In addition, techniques for studying the Bible are presented, along with recommendations on Bible translations, online Bibles, and Bible apps.

Robert Waligurski is a senior design engineer at Safran, designing the interiors of Boeing and Airbus aircraft. He has a physics degree from the University of Illinois and three graduate degrees in engineering from the University of Southern California. He has held faculty positions at Chapman University College and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He has spent over twenty years researching the Bible and ancient manuscripts, seeking the truth about God, Jesus, humankind, and reality.

Heavy: An American Memoir

by Kiese Laymon


*Named a Best Book of 2018 by the New York TimesPublishers 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).
