Where does a new believer turn to find truth? The Christian narrative today has morphed into a fluid and philosophical commentary centered around social injustices and motivational messages that rarely align with the gospel that Jesus preached. Sin is ignored and repentance is avoided by those who over exaggerate grace and diminish the holiness of God by suggesting he accepts us whether we are faithful to him or not. In a knee jerk response to the strict religious shackles of the early church many of today’s preachers bask in the hyper-sensitivity that accompanies the “cancel culture” that proclaims it will not be judged. In The Gospel Truth, Bezan has endeavored to dissect prominent Christian religious denominations in order to expose their internal theologies and scrutinize the details of their doctrine under the litmus test of scripture. He offers legitimate discernment to differentiate between truth and almost truth and conveys an intelligible recognition of the genuine vs the counterfeit in a detailed and comprehensive assessment that leaves the reader judiciously satisfied. We have an opportunity in this life to sincerely contemplate the things of God. We are provided with a window in time to question the hidden mysteries of scripture and truly discover who God is. The good news is that God has provided a path to salvation through Jesus Christ and the gospel contains the truths that solve the mysteries that have eluded men for millennia.

Have you ever Searched for the Truth about Life, about God, and Happiness? And did Religion ever help you find that truth? If not, you may finally get your answer in this book, “Back to GOD, Away from Religion”!
The book itself describes one man’s soul-searching, Inner Journey for the Truth about Life, God, Happiness and Religion.
After more than six decades of fervent seeking, the author finally realized this great truth:
“All religions are Man-Made, and not God-Ordained! And Since Man is not perfect, ALL religions are Flawed.”
Therefore, religion is NOT the best way to God or to Life. The best way to a happy, fulfilled life is found by looking within yourself and not inside ancient books!
(NOTE: Last year, this book won the Bronze Medal in the 2021 Global Book Awards in the Faith & Spirituality category. This year, it was an Awards Finalist in the 2022 Readers Favorite Awards Contest in the Religion/Philosophy Category.)
A retired teacher’s take on our failing education system from the inside. Honest and controversial, Education Aggravation examines the roles of the various actors and elements: students, teachers, parents, administration, politicians, money, media and technology.
What is happening in our schools? Do schools prepare students for “real” life? How? Who calls the shots?
Students advance from grade to grade without learning how to read or decode. How is that possible? Parents have trouble with 3rd grade math. Why is that? Technology is doing the critical thinking for our students. Snap! The importance of lifelong learning needs to be stressed in the households, the schools and on social media.
Instead of throwing blind money at a never-ending fix and just passing students from grade to grade, we need to re-examine our goals for them from the ground up. The student is supposed to be the focus. Only by looking at the cultural dynamics molding our students and using the tools at our disposal (one being our brains) to develop their ability to think on their own can we help them navigate their individual success in an unknown future.

The December 30, 2021, Marshall Fire outside of Boulder will be remembered as the most destructive inferno in Colorado history and one of the top fifteen worst fires in the western U.S. In a little over four hours, the fire, fueled by high velocity Chinook winds, burns 6,026 acres, consumes 1,084 structures, and causes over $2 billion in damage. Over 37,500 residents evacuate. And yet miraculously, only two persons are killed and eight injured during the fire. Scenes during the fire are surreal with one house engulfed in flames while its neighbor sits quietly next-door displaying Christmas lights. The fury of the wind decides what burns and what stands untouched.
This is the story of the inferno, the heroes who fight it, the area history, the fire recovery, and the many miracles that happen along the way.
