December 04, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pastor and Publishing author James Langston's book, Out of the Ashes, is receiving rave reviews. The book has ranked in the top 100 in tag categories "Jesus Christ," "Call to Salvation," and "Church Leadership."
Out of the Ashes takes readers on an exciting and thought provoking journey: a journey that touches the very essence of why Believers often face difficult and challenging situations. While none of us adore these trials of faith, in them, God is reshaping our lives for His service.
Langston writes, "I wish I could say that I understand the Ways of the Lord. However, we only have a myopic view of the whole part. Yet, even in this I'm slowly learning an invaluable lesson, it is far better to say "yes" to the Will and Ways of the Lord first (even if we do not understand everything), and then ask our questions later."
Charles Dickens wrote in his novel A Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."
What makes this book different from other books written on the same subject matter is explained in the many reviews it is receiving. Many people are calling it the most exciting book on the subject in a very long time. Others claim it to be full of truth, wisdom, and life, paralleling the resource it most often quoted, the Bible.
The following quotes are what reviewers are saying:
"This is a great book, one of the best I have ever read on the subject matter. It takes an honest "no frills" look at situations and challenges Believers deal with each day. It is very simple and perfect for Bible Study, Bible Classes or in preparing Sermon notes. Written in an informative and well documented style, the author really drives home answers to the questions of life. This is a must read for anyone looking for great answers."
"This is a wonderful book, and it's very powerful too. It's short and to the point, and does not leave the reader guessing to the authenticity of the material covered. All answers are backed by well researched, documented and highly reliable sources. If you're looking for a short, yet powerful book with lots of answers, this book is for you. Get it, take it to your church, and start small groups with it. Get his other books too; they are all great books to have."
"Without question this is a great book. In a word life's pressures are at times gargantuan. Yet the sometimes disjointed, wild and crazy truths that reliable news sources (television, newspapers, magazines and from behind pulpits) are espousing is shady at best. No need to second guess now. Get your copy, get in the know, and make sure what you are being told is the Word of God. This book will open your eyes, as well as your heart. Get the book today!"
One thing is certain; this book is quickly gaining everyone's attention. People are desperately seeking answers in 2012, especially with the end of the year right around the corner. Many are wondering what the Bible has to say about the unparalleled troubles, pressures and the growing apathy toward God and the Bible now taking place in the world. This book provides many of those answers.
The answers within this book will help guide you toward a stronger faith and a hunger for God's Word. Out of the Ashes can be purchased from Amazon Publishing (paperback, e-book or Kindle), Lulu Enterprises, your local bookstore, or your favorite online retailer.
