A Road Trip across America's Religious Landscape
Author: Christopher P. Scheitle,Roger Finke
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Category: Social Science
Lavishly illustrated with over 100 color photographs, Places of Faith takes readers on a fascinating religious road trip. Christopher Scheitle and Roger Finke have crisscrossed America, visiting churches in small towns and rural areas, as well as the mega-churches, storefronts, synagogues, Islamic centers, Eastern temples, and other places of faith in major cities. Each stop on their tour provides an opportunity to introduce a particular current of American religion. Memphis serves as a window into the Black Church, a visit to Colorado Springs provides insight into evangelicalism, and a stop in Detroit sheds light on American Muslims. Readers visit Hare Krishnas in San Francisco, the Amish in central Pennsylvania, and a "cowboy church" in Amarillo, Texas. As the authors journey across the country, they retell unique religious histories and touch on local religious profiles and trends. They draw from conversations they had with pastors, imams, bishops, priests, and monks, along with ordinary believers of all kinds. Most of all, they tell the reader what they saw and heard, putting a human face on America's astounding religious diversity.

Why another book of Prayers and Confessions: It was the Word of God and prayer through confession that changed me and my mind. It was life that drove me to Jesus (The Word), and it was God's Word that helped me, gave me hope and a reason to live. Prayer and God's Word combined WORKS! It's that plain, simple and true! It was through seeking God and His Word that I was redeemed. It was God's Word that was and still is my medicine, my meat, my message and my victory. It was and still is God's Word that spoke to situations and they obeyed. I'm whole today because of praying, believing, and acting on God's Word. That's why I wrote another book. It was and still is Prayer and God's Word that will set anyone free from condemnation, sin, and their past. AMEN!!!

The success achieved by the movement of Shri AmarnathYatra Sangarsha Samiti for protecting the Hindu identity and national self-respect is the triumph of Hindutva and the like-minded nationalist forces over pro-Pakistan anti-national and secessionist groups. The patriotic people of Jammu continued their fight for two successive months facing endless agony and pain. They showed the path to all the nationalist forces across the country through their commitment and resolve. The consolidated strength of Hindu of Jammu has given the message that Hindutva is the only rallying point, meeting ground and basis on which the whole country can standup with self respect, which is very much essential to protect our national unity, integrity, culture, glorious historical past, places of faith and worship and icons of social unity. The victory achieved by the Sangharsha Samiti is not the victory of Jammu region alone but it signifies success of all the nationalist forces battling against the grossly anit-national, terror-orientated and inimical foreign-sponsored organization over last sixty years. This book presents a brief account and the ideological basis which was waged in order to save Hindutva.

Reach a New Dimension of Faith for Daily Victory
Author: Chuck D. Pierce,Robert Heidler
Publisher: Gospel Light Publications
This message from Chuck Pierce and Robert Heidler likens our spiritual defense to that of the children of Israel while in battle. Within the ranks there were those who carried huge shields to protect the bulk of the army. And just as we fight spiritual battles today, there is a mighty shield we can carry to protect us. This shield of faith is one of the main ways we can resist our enemy's attacks. We are fully capable of resisting the enemy's attacks, but we must first be able to recognize how Satan fights. His main weapons are to create fear and doubt in us and to tempt us to become complainers and murmurers. If we succumb, our faith is weakened. The keys to increasing our faith are found in knowing the Word of God, which engenders praise, thankfulness, trust and obedience.
