BOOK LAUNCH NEW RELEASES

HOW TO HEAR GOD is available for FREE from Amazon on June 24, 25 and 26, 2016.

How To Hear God: A Seven Day Guide to hearing God, Book 1.

by Ian Banner

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Would you like to hear God more in your life than you do?
Do you hear stories of people who claim to hear God and wonder if that could ever happen to you?

IAN PICTUREAre you finding your Christian life a struggle and just wish God was more intimate, more involved?

Would you like some practical advice on how you can hear God?

If you answered any of these questions ‘Yes’, then this book is for you. Its purpose is to help you learn to hear God’s voice and to encourage you to do what he tells you.

Author Ian Banner says, “I have the privilege of being part of a team that regularly travels to preach, pray and prophecy to people.

This book is full of all the tips and lessons God has taught us over the past 5 years.

If you follow the advice written here, based on my very practical experience, I believe anyone with a heart to be used by God can learn to hear God’s voice and learn to pray, give words of knowledge and prophecy safely and effectively for other people.”

The book covers how to hear God yourself and how to use that gifting via words of knowledge, or prophecies, in sermons, when praying for people, running meetings or leading response times in church.

Chapters include 
Baby Steps in hearing God and Prophecy
What do I mean by Personal Prophecies?
Co-operating with God in your life and ministry.
How to pray with people safely.
How to develop you gifting from occasionally praying for people in small groups to calling out prophecies and words of knowledge in large meetings.
What do do when things go wrong?

Plus other blogs, books and apps you can use to help you.

REVIEW

Delightful book from a devout man

HOW TO HEAR GOD is a seven step, practical beginners guide to hearing God, words of knowledge and the gift of Prophecy. It was initially released a few years ago and this is an updated edition.

What I love about this book is that Ian gives examples from daily life to illustrate the points he is making and he does this really well. So well in fact that I read the book in one setting.

Ian encourages his readers to read a little bit every day however and to have a journal handy  for note taking.
It is mentioned in HOW TO HEAR GOD that a separate study guide for this book is available, which contains extra exercises and notes. You can use this individually or in small groups. This guide is available for free.

Ian explains what a personal prophecy is and how we can know that the information which comes to us is from God. He explains it in such a way that I think; ‘We should all know about this.’ This is book One and I’m already looking forward to book Two.

This is a delightful book filled with personal anecdotes and directions of a devout man who clearly walks with God and would love nothing better than for others to do the same. I highly recommend this book for anyone who struggles to hear God’s voice in their life and also for us who can do with some fine tuning.

AUTHOR BIO

Hi – I am Ian Banner and I have a few passions …

First I am passionate about the God whom I serve. I am a 52 years old born-again charismatic Christian who lives in Sheffield, UK.

I am passionate about my family. I have been married to my wife Merle for over 25 years – we met at university and we have 2 lads, studying at University. We live and worship at a local church in Sheffield.

I am the co-director of a charity in Uganda, called Forever Caring Homes. The charity is designed to look after young children who have lost their parents through the AIDS epidemic that swept through Africa. It’s quite small, and lots of others do work like this as well, but I do it because I felt the lord tell me to.

Finally, I write books and blogs.

Why “Bible Study” Doesn’t Work


Book launch

Get your free copy on Amazon today and tomorrow June 19 and 20, 2016.

Why “Bible Study” Doesn’t Work: The epic failure of evangelicalism’s favorite discipleship method – and how YOUR CHURCH can do something about it

BOOK DESCRIPTION

When did Bible Study become the broccoli of the Christian life?

WHY BIBLE STUDYEat more broccoli! It’s good for you! Study the Bible more… attend more “Bible studies!” It’s good for you!

Shouldn’t studying the Bible be more than simply something that is good for us? Shouldn’t studying the Bible together with other followers of Jesus actually strengthen us for a healthy lifestyle of following Jesus on the journey of the Christ-life? Did we miss a turn somewhere?

Let me ask you a question. If more (or better) Bible studies is really the answer, how in the world do we have so many people who:

• Have gone to Sunday School for decades
• Have attended, helped in, and taught Vacation Bible School
• Have participated in multiple 13-week or 40-day video-based Bible study courses
• And are Biblically illiterate and don’t have any idea how to think or live Biblically?

It seems that we have a disconnect somewhere.

I’d like to offer, in this brief book, a way of rethinking Bible study. A way that refocuses studying the Bible with the intent of making disciples. A way that emphasizes not just the “what” of Bible study, but also the “how” and the “why” of studying the Bible.

REVIEW

Gerry is inviting us to re-evaluate the usefulness of Bible studies as they are conducted at the moment. He says, ‘What I don’t believe is “Join another Bible  study group and you’ll be more like Jesus.”

Amen to that!

Thank you, Gerry. A book like yours was long overdue.

About my mentors… THANK YOU!!


About my mentors

If it weren’t for my mentors I would not have been able to publish 3 books successfully in a period of just over five months.

Michael Hyatt and Chandler Bolt are two of my favourite mentors but I have plenty more such as John Kremer, Penny Sansevieri, Tim Grahl, Tom Morkes, David Chesson and Paul Brodie, just to name a few. This is a big THANK YOU to them all for their support, inspiration and freely shared knowledge. Some of my mentors will be speaking at the next Self-Publishing Success Summit.

Thank you awesome

Self-Publishing Success Summit

This is super exciting! Another Self-Publishing Success Summit has been organised. Last year’s Summit was a huge success. More than 30,000 people took action and thousands of them have gone on to WRITE THEIR FIRST BOOK!

At these Summits we learn from the very best in the industry how to write, market and publish our first book.

This will be the biggest online Publishing Event of the year JUNE 12 -22, 2016.

What is the Self-Publishing Success Summit?

The Self-Publishing Success Summit was created in order to give all writers the complete skill sets to create massive opportunities for themselves. The Summit teaches aspiring and seasoned authors alike how to navigate the pitfalls of the publishing landscape.

During this virtual Summit, some of the top self-published and traditionally published authors impart their knowledge and business secrets to writers at all levels. Why do they want to do this and help with this passion project? Because they’ve once walked in our shoes.

Writing can be very intimidating. Even those who love to write worry about taking the leap into publishing. Many never actually publish their finished work. Why is this?

Traditional publishing is a tough nut to crack, there’s no guarantee that even the most well-written, fascinating book will break through and score a publishing deal. There’s always self-publishing, right? This is true. Self-publishing is available to everyone, but requires a fair amount of skill and knowledge to hit that elusive best seller li

I know that Chandler Bolt will be at this year’s Summit (he organised it) and Michael Hyatt, that’s already two of my favourite people. As well as  Scrivener Coach Joseph Michael, Joanna Penn, Gary Vaynerchuk, Pat Flynn, Anik Singal, Jeff Walker, Barbara Corcoran,  and another 30-odd speakers. They’ll all be sharing their expertise with us for FREE. You’d be crazy to miss this!

REVIVAL: the 21 Day Challenge


Book launches reviews

Revival: The 21 Day Challenge: Rekindle Your Passion for God

Written by Deb Wilson.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

– Do you want a vibrant relationship with God?
– Do you want your life to radiate Jesus in such a way that sinners are drawn to Christ through you?
REVIVAL– Do you want your life to inspire believers who have settled for the comfort of a lukewarm lifestyle?

In just twenty-one days your life will radically change. You will experience personal revival in a way that not only impacts you but everyone around you.

Revival: The 21 Day Challenge goes deeper than a daily devotion. Each day includes:

– A short, yet powerful Bible Study
– Thought provoking reflection questions
– An effective, fervent prayer

God is calling His people to rise up victorious. Revival is breaking out all over the world today. Only God can birth a Great Awakening, but personal revival is available for every believer who hungers for intimacy with God. Unlike many books on corporate revival, this book focuses on revival in the individual believer. Deb Wilson is passionate about revival. She has gone to great lengths to take powerful concepts and present them in a practical way.

Revival in your life will fuel your passion for God, the body of Christ and the lost. You will learn how to have an eternal impact on the world.

Grab your Bible, a notebook, and pen. Jump into the life-changing Word of God, and prepare to be awakened.

MY REVIEW

This is not just another religious book. In REVIVAL Deb addresses all the questions believers have plus some. What does revival mean for me personally? How do I know that GOD hears me? What does it mean to have a close relationships with GOD and how do I go about it?

Deb follows up with Scripture verses which give the answer to each and every question. After this Deb prays with us for more insight, understanding, closeness so that we can serve better and experience more joy in our lives.

REVIVAL truly is an invaluable manual for your bedside table. On that note, I only have one complaint. Where is the hard copy?

AUTHOR BIO

Deb Wilson describes herself as, “an ordinary woman, serving an extraordinary God.” She was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, where she currently resides. For years, Deb dreamed of being in full time ministry as a Christian author and speaker. After a rewarding career in Marketing and Public Relations at the prestigious Nemours Children’s Specialty Care clinic in Jacksonville, she retired in December 2014, to follow that dream.

Deb believes her destiny is to encourage and mentor other women with life changing Biblical based teaching designed to spur women to grow spiritually and embrace their God-given purpose and destiny.

Life has been busy since retirement. Deb is always looking for new ways to use the gifts and talents God has given her to inspire others. She offers free audio conferences, proudly serves on the Board of Directors for two non-profit organizations, leads small group studies through her local church, participates in jail ministry and ministers to women in various stages of drug or alcohol recovery.
