ABOUT THE BOOK :

The Anticipated Sequel to Identity Theft Continues the Suspense and Intrigue!

Moments after David Lebowitz is finally convinced that Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah, he is thrust into a soul-wrenching family tragedy. In deep anguish, he cries out to Heaven. His prayer is answered in a most unexpected and unusual way.

An angel named Ariel transports David back into his celestial classroom where history- shaping events unfold right in front of him. Through supernatural time travel, David comes face-to-face with first-century pioneers such as Apostles James and Paul, along with early disciples of Yeshua, like Priscilla and Aquila.

Before his eyes, a world-changing—and at times, shocking—history is being written. While David cannot change the past, he is able to unlearn horrific myths about Yeshua and the Jewish people—only to return to earth for the test of his life!

Experience history like never before and catch a glimpse of life for the first congregation of Jesus-followers in Jerusalem. You will also discover how the diabolical snares of anti-semitism and replacement theology sought to sabotage God’s work in their midst.

See God’s unfolding plan to bring the Jewish people to salvation and release Yeshua’s power in the Earth!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Ron Cantor is the Congregational Leader of Tiferet Yeshua in Tel Aviv. He embraced Yeshua as an 18-year-old, drug-using agnostic. Ron travels from Israel to the nations teaching on the Jewish Roots of the New Covenant. Ron has shared the Jewish Roots message on five continents and is the author of Identity Theftand Leave me Alone, I’m Jewish.

My thoughts:

So you never know what to expect when you begin a new book by an author you have never read before.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It is very different from anything I have ever read but so interesting and educational.

It really is almost a study in Jewish history and a Bible Study.

This book really would be a great way to introduce a Jewish believer to Jesus (or Yeshua as He is called in the book).

I found it really interesting the Jewish thoughts on Christians, at least in the book, really an utter disgust. Do they really feel that way? Things to consider that I never did before.

This the second book in the series and I was concerned I would be lost since I didn’t read the first one but I followed along just fine.

If you are looking for something a little different from you typical Christian book and want a bit of an education on our faith I highly recommend this one.

peril 2

Peril by Jordyn Redwood

Description:

Dr. Thomas Reeves is at the pinnacle of his career. The Department of Defense has awarded him a lucrative contract for his new research into superior autobiographical memory, which promises the ability to create combat troops able to quickly learn complex battle plans and enact them perfectly under the most demanding battlefield scenarios.

An elite unit has received neural grafts from fetal cadavers of genetically altered brain cells with enhanced NMDA receptors. The results are remarkable . . . until the recipients begin suffering hallucinations, nightmares, paralysis, . . . and death. Dr. Reeves searches for answers, but DOD insiders want him to stop the search.

The situation becomes public when pediatric ICU nurse Morgan Adams, Dr. Reeves’s daughter, is taken hostage by three research subjects in an attempt to force Dr. Reeves into disclosing why they are sick. If answers aren’t revealed within twenty-four hours, patients in the pediatric ICU will be killed.

This spine-tingling conclusion to the Bloodline Trilogy raises spiritual and ethical dilemmas torn directly out of today’s headlines. When does life begin? How far does commitment to family go? And can the sins of the father ever be forgiven?

My thoughts:

Jordyn opens this book with a gripping scene and doesn’t let you go until the end.

She has written a wonderful novel that is not for the faint of heart. But if you like to stay up at night captivated by a good book then this is one you will want to grab.

I have never went through the death of a child but if you have you will relate well with Morgan Adams. She is very hard towards her husband. I found myself wanting to tell her to love him and allow him to love her. Her grief is deep and you will hurt with her as you read.

Peril is very well written, Jordyn definitely has a talent that I can’t wait to see more of. I highly recommend this book.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Christianbook.com.
