In The Press - Christian Basic Training

A must read Christian book - CBM Christian Book Reviews


Christian Basic Training: The Basic Foundational Principles of the Christian Faith by Craig TFeigh helps new and mature believers alike get back to the basics of their faith. 

As the author states, “Like fire tests gold and silver, God commands us to test ourselves daily (2 Corinthians 13:5) to be sure that our heart is right with Him and that we can defend and articulate our faith.  Testing our faith is essentially getting back to the basics and building for ourselves a strong foundation.” This is the premise of this foundational book that will build faith, instruct believers in sound Biblical doctrine and provide a keen understanding of God, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

As a child of God and a believer in Jesus Christ, one understands that decisions made here upon Earth have an effect on our eternity in heaven. In this book, Craig TFeigh reveals some alarming statistics of Americans polled in regards to their faith. An alarming 66% of the 89% Americans polled are not sure whether they will get to heaven or not. This makes it necessary for Christians to understand the basics of their faith and what the cross did for them.

In addition, the author reveals through scriptural interpretation your identity in Christ. This is a simple way to understand many of the questions you have about the Bible that gives not only firm scriptural truths, but gives a firm foundation to build upon. Whether just coming to Christ, or as a well-seasoned believer, the foundations never change and it almost guaranteed that readers will learn something in this book.


Created for individual use and within a group setting the author offers classes on Christian Basic Training and encourages all to understand the truth of God’s Word. This is a highly recommended read that covers a broad spectrum of the key foundational principles of the Christian faith that enlightens many facets of the Gospel in an easy-to-understand and fascinating read.

The Cross and Easter

A wonderful and endearing Christian children's book.

Just For The Kids

God’s Easter Miracles by Lee Ann Mancini and illustrated by Dan Sharp offers little children the gift of Jesus and the miracle of Easter through a delightful and fun-filled story of life under the sea. With cute, bright and colorful pages, children learn about a school of fish, all different in shapes and sizes, that attend church to worship God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. There are Sea Horses, Manatees, a Puffer Fish named Melissa, and so much more for the eye to see. Life under the sea at Coralhood is a place where God, church, family and friends share community, as the author points out to the children that they are all special in God’s eyes.

Shedding light on the miracle of Easter and Jesus who gave His life to all by dying on the cross and

resurrecting on Easter day give young children an understanding of how much they are loved personally by Jesus. Quoting the scripture verse, “Greater love has no one than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 (NIV), the author also presents several key life-lessons that children can relate to. Life lessons of being kind towards one another, praying for each other, asking Jesus to help you become like Him, help all the undersea children at the Sunday School learn how to care for one another in a godly way.

Filled with fun, children will always remember this book as it teaches the golden rule, to treat others as we would want to be treated and that giving is better than receiving. And most importantly the book teaches to little ones that Jesus gave the ultimate gift to us at Easter, His own life, so that we can have life and live in Heaven with Him. The author does an excellent job at explaining this on a kid’s level.

This is a wonderful and endearing Christian book that all parents and children alike will cherish. It would make a great gift to children in their Easter baskets. Children will also have fun finding the hidden Christian fish symbol (Ichthys) embedded in the pictures on select pages.

America’s Christian Origin


America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible:
A Select Study on America’s Christian Origin
By: Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D.
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible: A Select Study on America’s Christian Origin by Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D. shares America’s rich biblical history and Christian heritage. Focusing on the American Revolution and afterwards, the author writes that America was founded on Christian principles and biblical practices that our Founding Fathers instituted, stemming from the formation of our government and the Continental Congress. 

Unwaveringly the author also reveals contrary claims by secularists and irreligionists that America was founded and “arose from the barrenness of secularism,” give way to an intriguing book that gives insight into America’s beginnings, formation as a nation and the underlying Christian legacy of America as a nation.

Divided into three sections: The Continental Congress and the Bible, Three Founding Fathers on the Bible, After the American Revolution, Conclusion: American Renaissance and coupled with three Reading Sections -  Defense of the use of the Bible as a SchoolBook, President of Congress Starts Bible Society & By the Bible or By the Bayonet, the author sheds light on the legacy of freedom, commitment to the Christian faith and the Bible, that helps readers understand and presents a brief glimpse into the motivations and truths from which our Founding Fathers relied upon.

With this perspective in mind, this book also provides viewpoints propagated from American Academia, jurisprudence and other disciplines that seem to ignore the facts. Further giving an overview of the initial thirteen colonies that sparked America’s growth and the first decrees of fasts and thanksgivings originally declared, coupled with the ensuing American Revolution, the author shows that America is a country that is nationally based upon the Bible. As the author states,Rather, both private and public writings overwhelmingly demonstrate that America's Founding Fathers intended and did establish American government upon biblical principles and practices.” 

This simple, yet historically accurate read comes highly recommended to all Americans, Patriots, Christians, college students and to the general public that serves as a reminder to get back to the foundational principles our country was founded on. Knowing your heritage and history is important and this book presents a keen understanding of “how” our great nation came to be. Concise and to the point, factual information presents and relates the importance of the Christian faith and the Bible in America.  History’s past can be confusing, yet this book is one of those books every American should read, know and understand. It is our privilege, duty and honor to take a stand for what was so costly – our freedom.

You may get your copy of America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible at Amazon, in Kindle and at other fine online bookstores. Visit Christian Heritage Fellowship for further information and some amazing ministry.

Seek The Kingdom of God

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  

Many are so involved with trying to make ends meet, they don’t seem to have any time to spend with the Lord. Stress in some lives is so high, they seem to be at their wit’s end. This is not the plan of God for your life, because Jesus tells you in the above verse, to put Him in first place, then He will meet your needs. 

People are looking for feeling, joy, peace, experiences and satis-faction, but frequently don’t acquire lasting results. Many spend large sums of money, but are not satisfied. Focus your attention on Jesus, find out what He wants you to do concerning His kingdom, seek His right-eousness, then the blessings you seek will follow. Since He created the world, He knows what is needed to give you lasting happiness. 

Ask Him to direct your activities today, and as you obey His instructions, He will fulfill His promise.

The Fruit Of Living In Faith

Just imagine the reality of the Kingdom of God alive in our lives. What would that look like? Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible! By Gary and LeeAnne Dyck give their accounts of God doing the miraculous in their lives and in the lives of others. 

From a returned earring to multiplied food, from angels transporting lost items back to the authors, to real-life accounts of Heaven, this book reveals realms, miracles and that God is in the business of doing miracles. 

First beginning with a little background on their upbringing, both husband and wife share how God has intervened, revealing that He cares about the little things, the big things and everything in between. The point of writing such a book is so that others would understand that they can believe God for miracles. Even the impossible!

This truly is an amazing book, to hear of such unbelievable miraculous things happening in the everyday life of two believers (and that of other believers and churches), not only stirs great faith, but shows how good our Heavenly Father is. 

These true accounts all come from the eye-witness accounts of the authors. As the book continues to reveal, there are many, even in the Church, that just don’t believe in the miracles after they happen. After reading this book, one just might consider that those “kinds” of miracles only happen to select people. As readers will learn, God gives to all. They include at then end of chapters a quick prayer, simple and to the point. They insist there is no “magic” formula. It is God who does the miracles!

A highly recommended read for those that want to believe God for more, for the impossible and I guarantee you will read this through in one night!  You may get your copy of Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible! at Amazon or as a Kindle download. Be sure to visit Gary and LeeAnne Dyck at Your Impossible Is Possible for further information and some great ministry.
