10.0 out of 10.0

The Gospel of If by multi-published and award winning authors, Edward J. Mrkvicka Jr. and Kelly H. Mrkvicka, addresses the delicate issue of salvation and eternity through the lens of obedience and understanding God's Word.  This book is not for the faint hearted; Mrkvicka "sticks" to the Word of God as the "infallible" Word of God.  He states that according to moral decay and negligence of the Word of God, many who think they are on their way to Heaven, simply will find a completely different answer upon Judgment Day.  Therefore, the biblical doctrine of "If" needs to be applied to our daily lives.  The author unequivocally states that God gave us many promises, "if" we care to listen and follow directions.  Based on Scripture with thought-provoking assessments according to the Holy Scripture, the authors have published a work that preaches the gospel of repentance –that has been preached since the time of Christ, yet has been ignored, distorted and forgotten about in our modern day society where that which pleases man seems to trump God's Word.  Reading this book will not only challenge the average believer in Christ to dig deeper into God's Word, but brings conviction to many skeptics and non-believers alike, leading them to the free gift of grace and salvation through Jesus Christ.

Edward Mrkvicka unapologetically explains his position and why he writes with "tough love" – so that readers would come to know the truth and be set free – "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32).  The authors' desire is that readers will grasp God's Word and apply it to their lives, changing the course of their eternity.  He believes largely, as a whole, society has either misunderstood, ignored or just flat out rebelled against God's Word.  Rich with Scripture, Mrkvicka writes with a father's heart in addressing the most important question of all – Do you know where you will spend eternity?  With chapters such as: Understanding the Word of God, The Obvious, The Not So Obvious, The Somewhat Obscure, the author gives scripture upon scripture that proves the point that the Gospel of Christ is conditional.  He adamantly states that one cannot lay dormant, ignorant or complacent about the matter of salvation.  It is a free gift, but there are conditions…Yes, conditions that he lays out clearly and conscicely through Scripture. 

For those that desire "truth" from the Word of God, this book comes highly recommended.  Tackling this subject of "if" was no easy task, and Edward and Kelly Mrkvicka have done so in such a way that lays not condemnation, but brings all to repentance and to the Word of God as the only righteous standard.  Encouraging, one will find this book giving them an appetite for more of the "truths" of Scripture.  A highly recommended read!

Biblical Christianity: Truth or Delusion? by Dr. Mark M. Hanna

Mark M. Hanna, formerly a professor of philosophy for many years at California State University and Talbot School of Theology, releases Biblical Christianity: Truth or Delusion?  As a previous professor and instructor at the University of Southern California, he holds M.A. degrees in philosophy and world religions and a Ph.D. in philosophy. He earned his B.A. at the American University in Beirut while living there for four years and as such, he has lectured in numerous universities and theological seminaries across the globe. His works included: Crucial Questions in Apologetics and The True Path: Seven Muslims Make Their Greatest Discovery and his latest endeavor, Biblical Christianity: Truth or Delusion?

In Biblical Christianity: Truth or Delusion? Dr. Mark M. Hanna disputes the book: The Christian Delusion written by John Loftus and Dan Barker as he unequivocally dismantles each of their arguments one by one with precision.  This is a fascinating read that clearly reveals the fallaciousness of atheist contentions, pointing to their failed corroboration that carries further implications that provide positive evidence for biblical Christianity.  Within that the author discerns and presents a comprehensive theological and philosophical surmise from both biblical theologists and theories of many anti-Christians that are to be read carefully and understood in order to comprehend certain debates that coincide with one's destination and question of eternity.

Christian Book Publishing / Marketing Sucess

At CBM Christian Book Marketing, we take our authors seriously. You see your success is our success story. However, it goes much deeper than that. It's about expanding God's Kingdom and being a blessing to others.

As Christian authors, we know that God has sown some very valuable seeds into your life, pearls so to speak. We understand the love, faith, dedication and hard work that you have put into your book and we as servants of God want to simply be used of God to sow those seeds and blessings into the hearts and lives of others. So while we have an obligation to you as an author to do our very best, we also have an obligation before the Lord to do our very best and we take both seriously.

While we cannot guarantee that your book is going to hit the best sellers list or become an overnight sensation. We can professionally promote you as a author and market your book in the Christian Marketplace. With a network of over 200 separate online Christian sites coupled with membership in additional premiere networks, communities and social communities, we have the ability to create a instant online presence for you as a author, while marketing your book and placing it in prime marketing positions. Now that's good news!

It's a huge ocean out there online with millions of sites and millions upon millions of daily Internet users. Many times authors believe that once they publish their book and create a author's site, blog or book page, that they will become a overnight success. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. The competition is fierce and countless other authors just like you are all competing for sales.

Without professional author promotions and tapping into that huge online ocean, it's like trying to go fishing with one pole and no bait. You must create an online presence and market yourself as a author while promoting and marketing your book and author's web site. Networking and utilizing the power of a well established network is a must.

That's where targeted author promotions and book marketing comes into play. Creating a online presence is important and reaching Christian readers within the Christian Marketplace is equally important. So why go fishing for potential book lovers and sales with one fishing pole when you can use a net.

Our Christian network of sites provides us with the power and ability to promote and market you as a author, your book and your author's web site, blog or book page. While other book marketing sites offer ad space on one site with monthly renewal fees, we offer author promotions and book marketing on up to 100 separate sites for one full year with no monthly renewal fees. Sites that are all a part of a huge Christian network of sites. Further each of the sites within our network have been online for many years, are well established, have lots of great content that attracts readers, have a huge online presence and as a network ranks high on the search engines.

Further through membership and the use of powerful feeds we are also networked with other premiere networks, communities and social communities which further expands our networking, online presence, reach and marketing power.

Proofreading For Christian Books


Proofreading is considered one of the final and most important steps prior to the publishing process. It involves fine tune editing with the objective to correct those last minute spelling, punctuation, and formatting errors that either you as the author personally overlooked or other editors have overlooked.

Proofreading is for the author who has already had their work professionally edited or that feels they have properly edited their own work. Proofreading includes finding and correcting the following errors:

  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Capitalization
  • Abbreviation
  • Table of Contents, chapter references and page numbers
  • Font styles and line/word spacing
  • Formatting of notes and tables
  • Formatting of citations for Scriptures and other references

    While it is fair to say that all editors strive to provide an error free manuscript, professional editors and publishers agree that professional proofreading is a very important final step to the overall publishing process. Many publishing companies will not even publish an author's works without both professional editing and proofreading.

Can you find the above editing errors?

    Christian author Pamela Young's Me and Mary's Miracles

    Me and Mary's Miracles by Pamela Young tells the true story of an average mother residing in Sydney in the late 60's along with her husband and three sons.  Strange happenings begin to occur as the family experiences one tragedy after another beginning with the untimely death of her husband's mother.  Then, tragically the family is torn apart by the death of one of her son's from a drug overdose.  This is only the beginning of a string of deaths in the family over a period of eighteen months.  Suddenly, compassion comes from a source she neither asked for, nor knew existed.  Come find out about the compassion and comfort that came from another realm – the heavenly realm- that transformed her darkest days into her greatest triumph. 

    Author Pamela Young's states, "I was not brought up in the Catholic faith. My forefather was a convict sent out to Australia from England and religion had not played a great part in my family's history. One of the facts that make this true story so enthralling is that in today's society, Mary Our Lady, should suddenly appear and have such a profound impact on, just not me, but also my family and friends. Therefore this gift of miracles is available to everybody."

    As disciples of Jesus Christ we are not promised a life without troubles.  In fact, Jesus states that we will have trouble in this world.  The author has laid a biblical blueprint based on Scripture that WILL lead readers to peace, and also explains that Jesus came to save us from our sins, but He offers more than just going to Heaven.  We can attain peace if we learn to live and abide in Jesus, following all His teachings that offer hope and a new life filled with abundant joy that overflows to others.  A highly recommended read to find inner peace within the storms of life!

    Come and learn what Scripture has to say about the peace of God.  Inspiring and encouraging, this book is filled with sound biblical wisdom.  One will find within the pages that the presence of God leads to peace despite ALL circumstances.
