Man, Myth, Messiah: Answering History's Greatest Question - Review

Did Jesus Really Exist?
The search for the historical Jesus continues to be headline news. Any speculative theory seems to get instant attention as the debate rages about His real identity and the claims made in His name. Did Jesus really exist? Is there real historical evidence that demonstrates that He lived and actually said and did the things the Gospels record? Is there any validity to the speculative claims that the Jesus story was a myth, borrowed from a variety of pagan cultures of the ancient world?

In this follow-up to the book God’s Not Dead (that inspired the movie), Man, Myth, Messiah looks at the evidence for the historical Jesus and exposes the notions of skeptics that Jesus was a contrived figure of ancient mythology. It also looks at the reliability of the Gospel records as well as the evidence for the resurrection that validates His identity as the promised Messiah. Man, Myth, Messiah will be released concurrent to the God’s Not Dead movie sequel, which will cover the same theme.

Soon after Rice Broocks became a Christian as a third year university student, he discussed his faith with his brother Ben, an atheist, who was a third year law student. Though Rice was young in his faith, his simple answers to his brother’s questions led to Ben’s acceptance of Christ, and he baptized Ben later that day.
“Since that day I’ve devoted my life to reaching out to an unbelieving, skeptical world with the message that God is indeed real and has revealed Himself in nature, as well as in history,’” said Broocks.
In his new book, God’s Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty (Thomas Nelson, March 2013), Broocks offers a clear, understandable overview of the evidence for God as well as the credibility of the Christian faith, while responding directly to many skeptical claims.
Broocks is the co-founder of the Every Nation family of churches, which currently includes more than 1,000 churches in more than 60 countries. Present on hundreds of college campuses, Broocks has spent the last 30 years with Every Nation focusing on equipping college students around the world to defend their faith.
Broocks also serves as the senior minister of Bethel World Outreach Church in Nashville, Tenn., where he provides oversight for this multi-ethnic, multisite church, currently meeting in locations in Middle Tennessee, Texas, and Arizona.
He is the author of several books, including his upcoming release, God’s Not Dead, Every Nation In Our Generation and the Purple Book (Biblical Foundations). 
Broocks holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Mississippi State University, a master’s degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Miss., as well as a doctorate in missiology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif. 
Broocks lives in Franklin, Tenn., with his wife, Jody, and their five children.
Man, Myth, Messiah is the core book that is noted in the movie, God's Not Dead 2 and is used to show the evidence through the Bible and about how to prove that God is real to those that believe he is not. 
Reading through the book, I found that the author claimed to approach differing views from a place of love yet some of the arguments used are not being completely backed up and are slightly aggressive towards non-believers. The author brings up some strong view points, just doesn't always follow through with the key concepts in a way that is congruent with leading someone through a conversion. 
I really felt that the book should have focused more on the follow through. Most Christians that are NEEDING to read this story, or non-Christians for that matter- need a more down to earth reading and this book didn't seem to be that read.

The Shadow Chronicles By K R Fajardo

Title: The Shadow Chronicles
Author: K R Fajardo
Genre: NA Paranormal/Fantasy Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
“Fifty years ago the Shadows betrayed me, left me to wither slowly into nothing, chained deep inside a hidden mountain cave. Meanwhile they took control of my kingdom, killing or enslaving any who would dare oppose them. But I am a patient woman … and immortal. The Shadows should enjoy their reign of terror while they can, in the meantime, I will continue to stare at these dark walls plotting my revenge. After all, it is only a matter of time, and I have all the time in the world.” K.
In the small town of Vicaris, Mikel and his daughter Citera live in and run a small clinic. It’s often chaotic and overwhelming, but neither of them would have it any other way. But their desire to help those in need, regardless of race or status, has often made them a target of the harassment by the Shadows forces.
Even so, when their Full-blood friend Rigar shows up at the back door of the clinic with the emaciated body of a young woman, Mikel doesn’t hesitate to bring her inside. And when they find out only minutes later the Shadows forces, including their henchman the Enforcer, are heading their direction, Mikel bravely puts his life on the line to protect the mysterious stranger.
Unbeknownst to Mikel, this young woman is the immortal queen the Shadows have been searching for decades to find. And it doesn’t take long before Mikel and his friends find themselves thrust into the midst of an ancient feud that will eventually decide the fate of Vanteria once and for all.
"Centuries ago I screwed up. Lost control of my darkness and did some things that I honestly wish I could erase from my memory. Feeling I had grown too powerful for my own good, the Council of Immortals banded together to create a linking spell which would forever connect my powers and emotions to those of a mortal with a pure and innocent heart. Unfortunately, the Council foolishly underestimated the depths to which my soul had descended. As a result, I have been forced to watch over and over again as my darkness eventually devoured the light shining within the poor souls chosen to be my Link. I would be lying if a said this didn't bother me, although probably not as much as it should. But regardless of my feelings, fate is fate, and unfortunately for Citera, hers has now become entwined with mine." - K.
Six months after K turned their lives upside down, Mikel, Citera, and their friends are beginning to settle into life inside Jaron’s camp. And with no patrols, inspectors, or Shadows around, it is a life none of them would have ever dreamed of having. However when ghosts from K’s past make an appearance and snap her usually unwavering control, Citera begins to be plagued by some strange and alarming symptoms. No longer able to keep the truth hidden, Jaron and K are forced to at last reveal the dark secret they have been keeping from the father and daughter, one that will alter the course of Citera’s life forever.
While her friends are adapting to life in paradise, Maya is struggling to survive her own personal hell. Locked in the Tower, she lives from day to day, desperate to find a way to connect with the only person who could make it all tolerable. Jarod, however, wanting to protect her from the darkness that is growing inside him, continues to push her away. But when a trip outside the Tower leads to Jarod learning that he has been lied to by the only person he ever trusted, he finds himself at a crossroads. Should he continue living the charade, protecting people who would just as soon see him dead as to look at him, or for the first time in his life, should he do what is right for him and allow himself to fall for this girl who consumes his every waking thought?

K.R. Fajardo (Kelli) is a married mother with 3 children who lives in East Texas and works part-time as an IMC nurse. She loves chocolate, Dr. Pepper, 80's music, and anything paranormal. Her favorite way to unwind after a long, hard day is to kick up her feet and immerse herself into the fantastical world of a good book. But when her youngest child started school several years ago, Kelli suddenly found herself with a large amount of extra time on her hands for the first time in over fifteen years. She debated for a short time as to whether or not she wanted to return to college, but after much consideration, swiftly decided that was not the path for her at the moment. Instead she decided this was the opportunity she had been waiting for to pursue her long time passion in writing and after a year of hard work and stumbling through the process, she self-published K: The Awakening. Now a member of Anchor Group Publishing, Kelli is excited to continue to pursue her dream and to keep sharing the stories that until now have lived only in her imagination.
