​​What could possibly prompt a world-acclaimed respected Christian, pastor, author, and public speaker to embrace Judaism? And not just embrace it, but become a rabbi? Wrestling For My Jewish Identity: An Eclipse with Reality is the true story of Elisheva Irma Diaz’s journey to reclaim her Jewish heritage and the faith for which she believes she was born. It explores how a Crypto-Jew found her way out of Exile and reclaimed her blood legacy despite experiencing disappointment and ridicule from those who knew her as a Christian leader and prejudice from many in the Jewish community she joined. Moreover, beyond being a personal account, Wrestling For ​My​​ ​Jewish Identity also provides support for the Anusim, those with a Crypto-Jewish background – and practicing Jews – who are grappling with the following questions: “Who am I? Who have I become? Where am I? Where am I headed? Who am I supposed to be?” In the midst of a Sephardic revolutionary movement of Jews throughout the diaspora, and especially in Latin and South America, who are awakening to their heritage, Elisheva’s message persists: we must not ignore the calling of the blood that runs through our veins, our spiritual DNA, and as Jews, we must accept that “a Jew is a Jew” regardless of where they have landed in Exile.

George Reinitz was twelve years old when he and his family were taken from Szikszó, Hungary, and deported to Auschwitz, where many of his family members were killed. As a boy on the brink of adolescence, he experienced the horrors of a Nazi death camp. Following his liberation he returned to his hometown where he remained for a few years before immigrating to Montreal in 1948 as part of the Canadian Jewish Congress’s War Orphans Project. In Wrestling with Life, George Reinitz recounts his vivid memories of childhood and his experiences in one of the worst places humans ever created. He recalls being tattooed with an unclean needle, eating raw potato skins to stave off hunger, watching his father get whipped in the face, and looking after the horses of SS officers. In Auschwitz he learned and used survival skills that he later applied in the commercial realm. George settled in Montreal and became a world-class wrestler, competing internationally and carrying the flag for the Canadian team at the 1957 Maccabiah Games in Israel. After working in a number of jobs he found his calling in the furniture business, eventually founding Jaymar Furniture, a leading manufacturer and a company that still operates successfully in Quebec. Wrestling with Life is a moving account of a child’s survival under the most difficult of circumstances. It tells the story of one man’s hard-won success as a businessman and athlete.

This current volume is not a facsimile, but newly typeset copy of the original works of Henderson from sermons and addresses given in 1638. It is the only series of sermons and writings of Henderson currently in print for modern readers. These sermons, prayers and pulpit addresses are set in the original language of Old Scottish, but there is a table in the beginning that gives the reader meanings to the old Scottish words that may be unfamiliar. Henderson is rich in content, a master preacher, and a faithful steward of Jesus Christ’s Gospel. He is eminently practical and readable, and the sermons contained in this volume were to church members, not to doctors or theologians; that makes this volume all the more special for every Christian. In the Christian’s endeavor to walk closely with the Lord Jesus Christ Henderson is a great help. His sermons cut to the quick and are needful for equipping Christians in our day and age. He was a powerful preacher of the Gospel. "By this gospel of peace I get assurance that all my sins are done away through the blood of Jesus Christ; and this makes me willing to undergo all troubles." Alexander Henderson

"It sounded at first like something out of an old horror movie. I thought maybe someone was just playing around, but then I heard it again and again, a loud piercing cry, and less like Hollywood every time. The windows were down in my police cruiser on that warm fall day, but I still couldn't tell where the sounds came from. I began looking around for the unlikely sight of someone being disemboweled in a mall parking lot on a Saturday afternoon. Seeing nothing, and still hearing the screams, I called in a 'disturbance.' Around the next corner I found the source of the commotion." So begins Greg Lucas' captivating account of life as a husband, a police officer, and Jake's dad. Jake Lucas, the first of four children, lives with severe physical and mental challenges. Caring for him each day is an ordeal few of us can imagine, and this story of Jake's first 17 years is not one you will soon forget. But the remarkable thing is how the whole narrative is saturated with wonder at the grace and goodness of God, who brings hope and promise through his Son into the darkest of circumstances. In this book, we see that Jake's problems are our problems, only bigger, and the challenges of caring for him carry profound lessons about God's care for us. Wrestling with an Angel is about tragedy and laughter and pain and joy. It is about faith and grace and endurance and God's unfailing, loving wisdom daily being worked out in each of our lives, whatever the nature or extent of our difficulties. Here is a book that may explain faith to you in ways you never quite grasped, through a life few of us can relate to. When it is all done, we come away better able to live as Christ calls us to live.

Can My Life Change compassionately identifies my justifiable bad routines and counters them with good routines in over 365 Plus Routine Life Changing Inspirationals. Routines are like double edged swords. One side of the blade helps me cut through my distractions, so I can obtain my goals. While the other side hypnotizes me into believing my deliverance comes from a routine. Ironically, the true end results of all routines make me complacent and further away from obtaining my desires. The key to Can My Life Change is in mastering how I can break my routine self induced trances. I start by clearing my mind with any of the 365 Plus Inspirationals. Then practice derailing any of my current routines that Im addicted to. It could be doing an unplanned fast to break a feeding routine, eating a new food group to change a nutritional routine, choosing an unfamiliar subject to change a study routine, moving the furniture around in a room to change a view routine, changing a job status to change a work routine, getting married to change a life style routine, having a child to change a relationship routine, and or a million other things. I keep practicing derailing hypnotic routines until it becomes a natural harmonious spontaneity for me and my loved ones. Remember God is everywhere. He is never limited to a specific routine to produce a certain blessing or miracle. He creates life out of anything, anytime and anywhere for anyone unconditionally. And were made in His/that likeness. In my moments of doubt, I reach out into believing God Can Change My Life; even though I have no clue how He will. I can ask Him to give me the faith and the will to believe, My Life Can Change!
