Rockaway, NJ, April 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Xulon Press spring 2014 book release catalog features the Christian Lifestyle book "Roots" that Jerry Reese, the General Manager of the New York Giants, called "powerful" in his endorsement of the book. The publisher Xulonpress.com, and retailers Barnesandnoble.com, Amazon.com and other Christian bookstores gives the Christian community an opportunity to own a copy of “Roots – a metaphor and acronym for the Christian life
" during the important Easter season of celebration.
"Roots - a Metaphor & Acronym for the Christian Life" is an inspired eye opening book by Christopher Falconer, a passionate Christian and Sunday School Teacher, that challenges and encourages Christians to consider and answer a very important question Jesus asked of the Apostle Peter, and of all Christians today - "who do you say I Am?" The book makes a strong argument that our answer to this question will determine how we experience the storms and droughts (financial, relational and health) that are oftentimes a part of life; and the book identifies five important elements (i.e. relationship with God, obedience to His Word, opportunities for ministry, the truth that sets us free, and the joy of salvation) of the Christian life that can serve as our anchor and nourishment; much like the purpose served by the roots of a plant.
In the context of the book, roots are to a plant, what Relationship, Obedience; Opportunities to minister, Truth and Salvation are to the Christian—nourishment, sustenance and anchor. The book's primary message is that every Christian can experience an abundant life – a life filled with joy, a life filled with hope, a life filled with peace, and a life filled with love; but, people need roots to experience that kind of life. The book makes you consider that "maybe you are searching among the branches - the world, for what is only found in the roots - a relationship with God;" and takes you on a journey to explore your Relationship with God, your Obedience to God's Word, Opportunities for ministry, the Truth that sets you free and the joy of Salvation. The conclusion is that Christians must plant themselves in the Word of God and the Christian lifestyle and not make it a pastime, or a hobby; but make it their life.
One Barnes&Noble book reviewer noted that "In some respect, this book, with its 5 chapters, is served like a carefully prepared 5 course meal that left me satisfied and eager to recommend the book to others." The author is on a mission to impact the world for God and he is now building on the message of the book with the www.rootsforliving.com Christian Lifestyle community that host devotionals, messages and other Christian resources that helps to foster the spiritual growth of Christians.
