The Fire Bible

The Fire Bible includes twelve unique tools that were created specifically to help you gain a deeper understanding of God’s Word. We have created a short study guide to help you gain maximum benefit from these tools. The guide provides brief instructions on how to use each of these tools to create inspiring sermons, family devotions, Sunday school lessons, or material for personal Bible study.

LIFE Publishers is committed to publishing the Word of God. In fact, LIFE Publishers International first began in 1946 as a result of one missionary’s vision and zeal to publish God’s Word for the Spanish-speaking world. By working with fire bible review Societies, missionaries, translation teams and printers around the world, we have realized and expanded that dream to include major languages spoken across the globe.

The Full Life Study Bible was started in the early 1980s as an individual missionary project by the late missionary Don Stamps (1938-1991). While serving in Brazil, he recognized a great need among pastors and lay workers for a study Bible written from a Pentecostal perspective. Soon after the completion of the Pentecostal notes, Don went to be with the Lord following a struggle with cancer.

Christian Self-Publishers Finally Get Some Respect

These days, Christian self-publishing has moved from the Rodney Dangerfield era to the Aretha Franklin age. Once they couldn’t get no respect, but now self-publishers in the category are singing Aretha’s chorus and asserting themselves as an important and viable option for faith-based authors.

An emphatic illustration of that shift came this January when Jerry Jenkins, coauthor of the bestselling Left Behind series, announced that his Christian Writers Guild was launching CWG Press to help go-it-alone newcomers. A longtime critic of self-publishing for “poor writing, little editing, sloppy proofing, bad covers,” Jenkins says his about-face was prompted by an “epiphany” that, even with the training his organization provided, worthy new writers without the platform required by many traditional publishers were not securing contracts. Jenkins’s new program—which he calls “come alongside” publishing, for its integral educational and mentoring component—joins around 20 other options for aspiring faith-based writers who are bypassing traditional publishers.

Other programs—variously described as self-, co- or custom publishing, depending on the specifics of their services—range from divisions at top christian self help books houses to small businesses started by editors and marketers who used to work at those and other houses. Packages are priced from $500 to $15,000 or more, from the creation of a simple POD file to an offset print run, e-versions, and distribution and marketing support.

I have been following her channel for quite some time, I have to say I really enjoy listening to what she has to say. Her passion really comes through in her videos and she covers a wide variety of topics ranging from apologetics to the Latin Mass, etc.

SheSpeaksWithWisdom

One of my newer favorites is SheSpeaksWithWisdom. She does a great job in keeping you updated on her discernment, which is helpful for anyone thinking about their vocation. My favorite video though is “Keeping the Faith in College”, probably just because its so applicable to my life right now!
