“It’s A God Thing – The Powerful Results of Ministry Evangelism” Review

Charles Roesel, Author of “It’s a God thing – The Powerful Results of Ministry Evangelism”

“It’s a God Thing” is a knowledgeable book about social ministry as a means to evangelism. One of the more powerful messages is a very logical bit of reasoning from an atheist about our faith, and why it is so ineffective at reaching others for Christ.

First of all, the reader is introduced to Pastor Roesel’s success in a church that met the needs of the community it served. Then Pastor Roesel discusses, step by step, the assessment of the community’s need as well as the need of people to be an integral part of the giving arm of the church.

It is more than clear from the bible references Pastor Roesel uses that not even Jesus worked through his ministry without witnessing their whole selves. The people of the congregation are to be taught well, not only to use the skills that God has provided them, but how to look for the opportunities through their service to witness to the power of God and His ability to make a difference in the lives of the people hearing the good news for the first time in their lives.  Karen

If you desire to see real changes happening in your church and your community, Pastor Roesel makes a convincing argument for changing the way you see your part in it.

I received “It’s a God Thing” as a review PDF. It was worth buying.  Karen

My Newest Book – Dead Man Talking, An Alisa Sharpe Mystery

    All my books are the best I’ve done when I put them out. I am especially proud of this one, because it took me two years, two surgeries (which afforded me plenty of time to research) and getting my beloved to read and edit between her job, her studies (which earned her an AAS diploma with high distinction), her training and her licensing as a nursing home administrator. The best thing that has happened while she waits for her new career is that this book looks fabulous, inside and out, and I am so happy, content, and inspired. As we journeyed through her mission to create “home” for those who need care as well as those who care, we read about the founder of The Good Samaritan Society, Dad Hoeger, and it began a sea change in the way I write books. This first book in the series uses bible quotes on unfinished cassette tapes to give clues as to the victim’s circumstances. I enjoyed researching bibles for that one so much, I’m listening to classical music as I write the current one. This is the kind of research I can live with. Following God’s leading isn’t a bad idea – It’s rather peaceful, and I learn a lot. Jim.
