Steps To Salvation with Shlomo Radio

Steps To Salvation with Shlomo Radio

I’m excited to announce the debut of Steps To Salvation with Shlomo on Blog Talk Radio. Tune in for his debut on Monday, July 17 at 10 AM Eastern when Shlomo discusses What Is America?

Please join me for my debut episode of Steps To Salvation Radio with Shlomo on Monday, July 17 at 10 AM Eastern Time U.S. when I discuss the United States of America. What is it? Where did it come from? Where is it going? I’ll answer these questions and more.

To stream the show through your computer, click on Steps To Salvation with Shlomo: What Is America? on Monday, July 17 at 10 AM Eastern. You can listen by phone at (347) 996-5894. Press “1” if you would like to ask a question on the air.

I am looking forward to starting my podcast and hope you will join me. Thank you.

After years of encouraging him to do this, I’m thrilled that he’s finally ready. Steps To Salvation, a book one reviewer referred to as “a genre unto itself” contains multiple themes and concepts best explained by the author in his own words. Interviews with other hosts are an excellent method of reaching an audience, but nothing compares to hosting your own show. I can’t wait to listen!

Due to Shlomo’s busy schedule as an entrepreneur who builds, repairs, and maintains commercial equipment for South Florida restaurants, he won’t have a regular broadcast schedule. Thank goodness for archives!

Happy Mardi Gras 2017!

Happy Mardi Gras 2017!

Here’s a little history about the holiday from History.com:

A Christian holiday and popular cultural phenomenon, Mardi Gras dates back thousands of years to pagan spring and fertility rites. Also known as Carnival, it is celebrated in many countries around the world–mainly those with large Roman Catholic populations–on the day before the religious season of Lent begins. Brazil, Venice and New Orleans play host to some of the holiday’s most famous public festivities, drawing thousands of tourists and revelers every year.

Many historians believe that the first American Mardi Gras took place on March 3, 1699, when the French explorers Iberville and Bienville landed in what is now Louisiana, just south of the holiday’s future epicenter: New Orleans. They held a small celebration and dubbed the spot Point du Mardi Gras. In the decades that followed, New Orleans and other French settlements began marking the holiday with street parties, masked balls and lavish dinners. When the Spanish took control of New Orleans, however, they abolished these rowdy rituals, and the bans remained in force until Louisiana became a U.S. state in 1812.

On Mardi Gras in 1827, a group of students donned colorful costumes and danced through the streets of New Orleans, emulating the revelry they’d observed while visiting Paris. Ten years later, the first recorded New Orleans Mardi Gras parade took place, a tradition that continues to this day. In 1857, a secret society of New Orleans businessmen called the Mistick Krewe of Comus organized a torch-lit Mardi Gras procession with marching bands and rolling floats, setting the tone for future public celebrations in the city. Since then, krewes have remained a fixture of the Carnival scene throughout Louisiana. Other lasting customs include throwing beads and other trinkets, wearing masks, decorating floats and eating King Cake.

Louisiana is the only state in which Mardi Gras is a legal holiday. However, elaborate carnival festivities draw crowds in other parts of the United States during the Mardi Gras season as well, including Alabama and Mississippi. Each region has its own events and traditions.

Author Daniella Bova on Steps To Salvation

This latest five-star Amazon review from the author of Tears of Paradox, Daniella Bova, made my day:

In Steps To Salvation I learned a great deal about history. The book opens in the year 2412 in Africa, many years after a worldwide upheaval, “The Armageddon War.” The main characters are all fictional descendants of historical figures from the past and present day, including Adolph Hitler, Charles Manson, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The characters are vividly written. They’re so true to life that I found myself laughing out loud during certain scenes containing the fictional future descendant of President Bill Clinton. In addition to laughing, parts of what I learned made me extremely angry. This book was painstakingly researched. It included facts about world leaders of which I was unaware, even though I’m reasonably up to date on current events as a rule.

Another reader mentioned that Steps to Salvation would be a very good choice for a book club. I agree. Many people of different faiths and backgrounds could find plenty to discuss. Mr. Attia’s ideas are sometimes a bit surprising. I can’t say I agree with every single point he made, but I can and do respect anyone who’s been through a near death experience. Mr. Attia’s ideas for the betterment of society were incorporated in a fresh, engaging way in the Steps To Salvation.

Visit Amazon.com to read the full review and pick up a copy of Shlomo Attia’s book, available in Kindle and paperback. With the holidays coming up, it makes a great gift.
