“The moment you begin to ponder the essence of truth, you are brought face-to-face with the requirement of a universal absolute – the eternal reality of God.” – John MacArthur

“Instead of bemoaning our own predicaments, how often do we look at the world, with all its evil and suffering, and say to God, “Forgive me for my part in the world’s sin?” – Randy Alcorn

“Hence that dread and amazement with which, as Scripture uniformly relates, holy men were struck and overwhelmed whenever they beheld the presence of God…Men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God.” – John Calvin

“The cross is the continental divide between human wisdom and divine wisdom.” – John Piper

“Any good that comes our way doesn’t come to us solely because we have done something good, but because God is good.” – Ray Comfort

“We cannot come to Christ to be justified until we have first been to Moses, to be condemned. But once we have gone to Moses, and acknowledged our sin, guilt, and condemnation, we must not stay there. We must let Moses send us to Christ.” – John R.W. Stott

“The human dilemma is this: God is holy, and we are not, God is righteous, and we are not.” – R.C. Sproul

“Our greatest fulfillment lies in giving ourselves to others.” – Henri Nouwen

“We must allow the Bible to say what is says, not what we think it ought to say.” – Jerry Bridges

“If man is not made for God, why is he only happy in God? If man is made for God, why is he so opposed to God?” – Blaise Pascal

“The wisdom of “the wise and understanding” has produced remarkable scientific advances. But it leaves out the most important reality, namely God. From one side it is stunning for its achievements, and from another side it is stunning for its stupidity in missing the main thing.” – John Piper

“Christ became what we are in order to make us what He is.” – St. Irenaeus of Lyons

“I believe it to be a grave mistake to present Christianity as something charming and popular with no offense in it. Seeing that Christ went about the world giving the most violent offense to all kinds of people, it would seem absurd to expect that the doctrine of His person can be so presented as to offend nobody…Whatever His peace was, it was not the peace of an amiable indifference.” – Dorothy Sayers

“There are only two kinds of men: the righteous, who believe themselves sinners; the rest, sinners, who believe themselves righteous.” – Blaise Pascal

“Either there is a God or there isn’t. Both possibilities are frightening.” – Ray Comfort

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I would sooner bring one person to Jesus than unravel all the mysteries of the Word, for salvation is the thing we are to live for.” – Charles Spurgeon

TRUSTING GOD
by Jerry Bridges

Category: Theology / Christian Living

I just received my book in typesetting format by WinePress. It looks mighty good! Including the Foreword, the Table of Contents, Endnotes, etc, it looks like my book may be a total of 310 pages. It’s not a gigantic book, but definitely not small. Nonetheless, I hope the read is engaging enough that it is a brisk read for many of you. I guess now it’s on to finishing the back cover design of the book!

THE LOST LETTERS OF PERGAMUM
by Bruce W. Longenecker

Category: Christian Fiction

Hollywood Mission: Possible is currently in the typesetting stage, which means it is in the second to last stage before publishing and distribution. If I had to take a fair guess, that means the book should be out sometime in August. But I’ll be sure to give you an exact date when it becomes available to me. Look for it on the WinePress Store, or Amazon.com and Christianbook.com if it becomes available there first.

Hollywood believes in “God,” but who do they say Jesus is?

Hollywood Mission: Possible tells the true story of Steve Cha, a Christian who infiltrated Hollywood with the purpose of carrying out one mission: to bring the light of salvation to those entrapped by the powers of darkness. During his three-year journey, Steve evangelized many famous actors, actresses, directors, and aspirants in Tinsel Town. Though he faced obstacles and threats along the way, Steve survived the mission, and now opens up his undercover file for the world to see.
Steve’s revelatory autobiography recounts how the gospel was shared with celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, Dan Aykroyd, and many other stars. Unprecedented in the genre, Hollywood Mission: Possible will enlighten, humor, shock, and ultimately inspire readers. Its evangelism scenarios provide a solid script for Christians willing to answer God’s casting call to bring spiritual light to the entertainment industry, and most importantly to the world.

Praise for Hollywood Mission: Possible

“Here is the story of one man’s testimony in Tinsel Town. Steve viewed Hollywood as his mission field, and Hollywood didn’t know what to do with him. Reading Steve’s candid and compelling account made me wonder what I would say had I a moment to share Christ with Brad Pitt, Kiefer Sutherland, or Tori Spelling.”
Robert J. Morgan, Author, Speaker, Pastor
Hollywood continues to set the pace in leading millions in Western culture to think and behave in more godless and self-destructive ways. The brokenness and hopelessness that accompanies Hollywood’s philosophy is rarely pondered and less frequently exposed by those within its ranks. I am grateful for Steve Cha’s heart which so passionately desires to see those in today’s movie and television industry come to realize their need for the gospel of Jesus Christ. How strategic it is to have those within the industry stand up and unabashedly proclaim the Lordship of Christ in such a needful time.”
Dr. Mike Fabarez, Pastor
Compass Bible Church, Alison Viejo, CA;
Focal Point Ministry
“You may not agree with Steve’s methods, but this book will motivate you to be a more passionate evangelist. Hollywood Mission: Possible is a fast-moving look at Cha’s life, as well as his approach to evangelism, but ultimately it ends up making the reader ask this question: Am I doing all I can to reach the lost?
Jesse Johnson, Outreach Pastor
Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA;
Professor of Evangelism, The Master’s Seminary
“Whether you are a Christian who shares his/her faith, a Christian who doesn’t, or simply a seeking unbeliever, I highly recommend this book. Never before have we witnessed firsthand the gospel being preached behind the scenes on actual movie sets and TV shows!”
Jonathan Khan, Evangelism Trainer and Leader
Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA
