A Mountaintop View of Faith is an anointed, truthful and empowering book on God's promise, your faith, and victory over everyday adversity. It is a hard hitting, provocative, and exhilarating work written to empower, especially believers, to deepen their faith and be encouraged even facing seemingly impossible adversities. Maldon states that adversities will always be a part of life and he contends that Satan desires to ultimately crush our resolve, hinder our promises from God, and weaken our faith in the sufficiency of God. He points out that adversities may be two-fold: trials appointed by God, or those self inflicted, resulting from our rebellion against God's spiritual instructions. He skillfully teases out how self imposed cripplers such as anger, un-forgiveness, selfishness, disobedience, pride, immorality, worry and others can rob you of peace and promises from God. Maldon encourages us to deepen our faith to reach a pinnacle mountaintop perspective of God.

A lyrical coming-of-age memoir, Down from the Mountaintop chronicles a quest for belonging. Raised in northwestern Montana by Pentecostal homesteaders whose twenty-year experiment in subsistence living was closely tied to their faith, Joshua Doležal experienced a childhood marked equally by his parents’ quest for spiritual transcendence and the surrounding Rocky Mountain landscape. Unable to fully embrace the fundamentalism of his parents, he began to search for religious experience elsewhere: in baseball, books, and weightlifting, then later in migrations to Tennessee, Nebraska, and Uruguay. Yet even as he sought to understand his place in the world, he continued to yearn for his mountain home. For more than a decade, Doležal taught in the Midwest throughout the school year but returned to Montana and Idaho in the summers to work as a firefighter and wilderness ranger. He reveled in the life of the body and the purifying effects of isolation and nature, believing he had found transcendence. Yet his summers tied him even more to the mountain landscape, fueling his sense of exile on the plains. It took falling in love, marrying, and starting a family in Iowa to allow Doležal to fully examine his desire for a spiritual mountaintop from which to view the world. In doing so, he undergoes a fundamental redefinition of the nature of home and belonging. He learns to accept the plains on their own terms, moving from condemnation to acceptance and from isolation to community. Coming down from the mountaintop means opening himself to relationships, grounding himself as a husband, father, and gardener who learns that where things grow, the grower also takes root.

The times have long passed when Pentecostals were viewed as Protestantism’s untouchables. Today, the shock waves from Azusa Street have influenced countless Evangelicals worldwide. But if dialogue between Pentecostals and Evangelicals has awakened within the latter a thirst for the power of God’s Spirit, it has challenged Pentecostals to examine their theology more deeply in the light of his Word. Just how firm is the biblical foundation on which they stand?Spirit and Power provides a cutting-edge look at Pentecostal theology. It addresses the concern expressed by its authors and echoed throughout charismatic churches today: “Although our Pentecostal forefathers intuitively grasped the correlation between the reality they experienced and the promise of Acts 1:8, they did not always articulate their theology in a manner that was convincing to other believers committed to the authority of Scripture.” In response, theologians William and Robert Menzies explore Pentecostalism in a scholarly and current light. Spirit and Power is no mere paraphrase of dated approaches. It is a fresh and penetrating look at the whys and wherefores of Pentecostal doctrine that sets a new standard for Spirit-filled theology. Whatever your persuasion may be as a Christian, this book’s thoughtfulness, balance, and biblical integrity will help you appreciate more fully the strengths of the Pentecostal stance.Laying the groundwork for an accurate understanding of Luke’s writings in particular, the authors help you grasp the foundations of Pentecostal theology from the standpoints of history, hermeneutics, and exegesis. Then, in Part Two, they give you an in-depth look at specific Pentecostal concerns: the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a blessing subsequent to salvation, evidential tongues, signs and wonders, healing in the atonement, and more. You’ll deepen your understanding of the basis for Pentecostal beliefs. And you’ll gain a feel for the mutually beneficial dialogue that continues between Pentecostals and Evangelicals today.
A New Perspective on PTSD is based on information I have accumulated throughout my recovery process using REBT to dismantle the flashbacks associated with PTSD. I suffered child abuse in addition to over 20 other traumas before age 32 and would flash back under stress. The therapeutic process I went through was not organized, or structured. The main fault with that type of approach is that my therapist and I would uncover issues that I found troublesome, that could not be resolved with-in the hour I was given. A New Perspective on PTSD is what I needed; a structured process for resolving the internal conflicts created by and that create flashbacks. Since I worked with many therapists, I have developed the strategic process I have now been able to provide you. This is the shortest, most direct route for dealing with and overcoming PTSD from most any experience. Combined with therapy with a PTSD specialist this book can bring your vivid reliving of the trauma down to simply an uncomfortable memory.
