Steps To Salvation now on Amazon

STSCoverWEBYou can now purchase a paperback version of Shlomo Attia’s Steps To Salvation on Amazon.com. While it will be available on Kindle soon, it’s not yet being sold in that format, although you can purchase it as an ebook on Lulu.com.

Check out this wonderful review from reader Gail Tenzer:

Steps to Salvation is a MUST READ. The author, Shlomo Attia explains that he experienced a Near Death Experience and while in that state, was charged with returning to life because “his work wasn’t finished!” Apparently he was to return to present solutions to the problems that have plagued mankind for the past millennia, in which we keep repeating the same mistakes, always expecting different results and failing. Once again our civilization stands on the precipice of a New Dark Age — and apparently Shlomo was charged with presenting some new solutions which if taken under advisement might prevent Western Civilization from once again going down that road.

The novel takes place in the year 2412 (400 years into the future), and proposes that at that time, we will already be living in the “Messianic Era…: which according to Jewish tradition “…will be one of global peace and harmony, an era free of strife and hardship” [Wikipedia].

2014_07_05_Shlomo_Book_012Looking back over World History, much of the strife the world has experienced and continues to do so in our times is due to “religious conflicts” directly relating to religious DOGMA! Let us remember that until the Enlightenment, political power rested within the Church. Many of today’s seculars also rebel against the concept of G-d or Creator precisely because they reject the political power that religious organizations (men) try to exert over their lives by manipulating religious beliefs to control them. In other words, it still comes down to politics masquerading as religion and the bottom line is still the ambitions of INSIDERS to exert CONTROL over the masses! It’s still all about Power and not really about the Creator.

Bill ClintonShlomo thinks outside the box and presents a vision of the future in which the world frees itself from this religious strife, and fulfilling the Jewish aspiration and prayer that “On that Day the Lord will be ONE, His Name will be One” by positing that without cohersion, mankind has accepted the concept of the One G-d Religion! Brilliant! No more strife amongst men that “My G-d is Better than Your G-d!”

So much for the solution to religious strife.

Shlomo then posits solutions to helping entrepreneurs through a lottery system of funding, solutions to education, the prison system and the rehabilitation of criminals, and other challenges facing present day society.

Characters in the book are descendants of Historical figures, including the progeny of Hitler, Kissinger, Mao, etc. — those who are the progeny of evil doers are restricted to a colony in Africa called Arisha, and have to devote their lives to the study of their ancestors, their wrong-doings, and admit remorse for the evil they have wrought, and ultimately have to pass a test in order to Adolf Hitlerget to see the rest of the world. This is a totally new way of looking at things as they are and have been in the world, and how we can avoid repeating history.
In these grim times, the book is refreshing, presents interesting solutions and a light at the end of the tunnel — demonstrating that there is hope for a better future after all. I wonder if applying his solutions can help usher in the Messianic Age. Without going into details to give away the solutions, Shlomo presents a solution to the current Middle East strife particularly with the Muslims and their hatred for Jews. Read the book to find out how this can be brought about without bloodshed!

I read the book in 3 days and could not put it down!

Writestream Tuesday with guest host Diane Student on April 29

Diane Student, host of Freedom's Wings.

Diane Student, host of Freedom’s Wings.

This coming week I’ll be blessed with a visit from Mom and my special brother Ralph. My friend and fellow patriot, the award-winning internet radio host and blogger Diane Student has graciously agreed to fill in for me on Tuesday, April 29 at a special broadcast time of 6 p.m. Eastern when she’ll welcome author Bruce Hennigan:

Tune in to Writestream Tuesday at a special time of 6 p.m. Eastern when blogger/writer and former host of the award winning Freedom’s Wings Show Diane Student fills in for Dariaanne. Diane will be joined by author, apologist and speaker Bruce Hennigan. Bruce is working on a thirteen book series in the genre of horror/fantasy from a Christian perspective. Three of those books are complete, The 13th Demon, The 12th Demon and The 11th Demon. They’ll discuss his books, how he finds inspiration, how he navigated self-publishing that later became a contract and how hard it is to write outside of the mainstream: pop culture isn’t real interested in Christian horror and the church seems adverse to the supernatural. Feel free to call in at 347-945-7246.

If you’ve never heard Diane on the air before you are definitely in for a treat! I am looking forward to listening to the archive of what promises to be a fascinating show!

Florida Author’s Poignant Book An Inspiration for Married Couples Everywhere

Author Lori Colombo-Dunham.

New Book, Reflections on the Ring: An Ordinary Woman’s Extraordinary Tale of How She Saved Her Marriage and Family, chronicles a wife and mother’s testament to the power of faith in action and the triumph of traditional values.  

Author Lori Colombo-Dunham.

Author Lori Colombo-Dunham.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida—In her first book, Reflections on the Ring: An Ordinary Woman’s Extraordinary Tale of How She Saved Her Marriage and Family, Lori Colombo-Dunham reveals how she transformed a shotgun wedding in a sterile courthouse mandated by an unplanned pregnancy into the marriage and family life of her dreams. Having always desired the trappings of an elegant church wedding and lavish reception, the author bravely discloses the “sins” of her past as a traditionally raised Catholic young woman and takes the reader on a simultaneously heartwarming, frustrating, and inspiring journey filled with broken dreams, financial turmoil, marital discord and parental responsibility. It’s a compelling personal story of triumph over one’s own self-directed aspirations and acceptance of God’s perfect — if at first seemingly ‘imperfect’ — plan.

“Most women harbor dreams of a fairytale wedding and marriage. And while some do achieve it all, they are in the minority. For most of us the reality of living out our daily lives with another person by our side demands compromise, cooperation and commitment. Yes, it takes two to make a marriage, but someone has to take the lead. Why not let that person be you?” Colombo- Dunham asks.

Filled with references and quotes from prominent authors and relationship experts Stormie Omartian, Dr. Laura Schlessinger and John Grey, Reflections on the Ring: An Ordinary Woman’s Extraordinary Tale of How She Saved Her Marriage and Family is already receiving rave reviews from a variety of critics one of whom, historical romance writer Katherine Bone states, “Reflections on the Ring is an adventure of discovery, love, and inner strength. Humorously written, readers won’t be able to put it down!”

One of Colombo Dunham’s passions is inspiring everyday women to stand up and fight for their marriages rather than live lives of quiet desperation or file for divorce. Aside from sharing her own story, she cites specific passages from the books that guided her into taking meaningful action. She ends each chapter with a bulleted summary of best practices and concludes the book with a rousing testament to the power of love, faith, family, friendship, fidelity and persistence.

A Pastor’s Review of Reflections on the Ring

ROTR-OPT11copy

Many thanks to the wonderful Reverend Bernie Lutchman for this thoughtful review of Reflections on the Ring:

Reflections on the Ring took a lot of soul-searching, courage and yes, faith to write. It was encouraging to me to see how Lori never stepped away from her traditional faith and turned it into something proactive that will impact her family for decades to come. I will encourage the reader to grasp the conundrum she faced when transitioning from her dream wedding to the nightmarish, almost mind-altering experience of getting married in a South Florida courthouse in front of a Judge! Her emotional conflicts and anxiety come over in the book as she tries to come to terms with marrying a man who bought her a Cubic Zirconia wedding ring! Here she was, with her 110 year old heirloom wedding ring from her great- grandmother, having recently given up a 2.5 carat engagement ring from a man she discovered she did not love, just to marry Dave in a cold impersonal courtroom. Could this get any more mind-boggling?

To her credit and here is where the minister in me warmed up to Lori, the person – she turned to the only Place she could find comfort and even peace. Even when things were darkest…. Even when bills were tough to pay…. Even when Dave was tough to love, she kept the Faith. What I loved about this “page-turner” is the various Scripture references therein, which are placed strategically along the narrative to tie into what was occurring at the time in Lori’s life! More impressive was her reliance on the writings from the wonderful prayer ministry of Stormie Omartian, with whom I am acquainted through my association (from 2006) with the Colorado-based National Day of Prayer Task Force. Stormie was once a speaker at one of our prayer summits up in the amazing Rocky Mountains, where praying to our Glorious God comes really easy (after one beholds the majestic mountains).

Here is a passage from Lori Columbo-Dunham’s book which I found very uplifting and beautiful. May it encourage you to pick it up and spend a couple hours reading it:
● When the unexpected happens, lead with your gut, follow your heart, trail with your head.
● Live by your conscience and take responsibility for your actions.
● Be conscious and respectful of his built-in psychological need to escape to his cave when warranted.

● Always be prepared for God’s destiny for you especially when it seems to contradict your own plans for your life.
