Prepare to Meet Your Maker by Pearl Nsiah-Kumi is a 48-page book of articles introducing people of all ages and both genders to the love of God through Jesus!
All the articles, although titled differently, do the same thing—point to Jesus as the only way to a relationship with God.
One doesn’t have to read the whole book to understand the gospel; each article does the same thing. Time is not on our side; let’s be diligent in sharing this message. Use this book as a tool to reach many for Jesus! Bless you!
As I (Lorilyn) think about what is happening in the world, I believe Pearl is right. Time is not on our side. How can we not be in the last days? As I think about what that means, all the people who are not believers in Jesus Christ are facing eternal damnation.
Time is short to share our faith. Jesus died for everyone, the young and old, the rich and poor, the able-bodied and lame, and those who have sinned much and those who have sinned little (all have sinned). We all need a savior. Jesus is the ONLY Way, the ONLY Truth, and the ONLY door to heaven. All others lead to hell. Only Jesus can save you.
This is a short read, 48 pages, and it's only $1.99 on Amazon Kindle, less than a latte at Starbucks.

About the Book
Angry at being rejected for military service, Minister Tyrell Walker accepts the call to serve as a civilian spy within his own country.
Across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio, a spy working for a foreign country is stealing secret plans for newly developed ammunition to be used in the war. According to Tyrell’s FBI cousin, this spy favors pink stationery giving strong indications a woman is involved.
Tyrell is instructed to obtain a room in the Rayner Boarding House run by the lovely, spunky red-haired Emma Jaine Rayner. Sparks of jealousy and love fly between them immediately even as they battle suspicions that one or the other is not on the up and up.
While Tyrell searches for the murdering spy who reaches even into the boarding home, Emma Jaine struggles with an annoying renter, a worried father (who could be involved in this spy thing), and two younger sisters who are very different but just as strong willed as she is.
Tyrell works to keep his double life a secret and locate the traitor. He refuses to believe that Emma Jaine could be involved even when he sees a red-haired woman in the arms of another man. Could the handsome and svelte banker who’s also determined to win Emma Jaine’s hand for marriage, be the dangerous man he’s looking for? Is the trouble-making renter who hassles Emma Jaine serving as a flunky? Worse, is Papa Rayner so worried about his finances and keeping his girls in the style they’re used to, that he'll stoop to espionage?
Will their love survive the danger and personal issues that arise to hinder the path of true love?
Lisa Lickel's Review
Ms. Brown’s historical novel is a delight. The book adds a twisty dimension to the WWII spy game that isn’t often considered from the US war-time arena. Yes, there were spies in the US, stooping to betray their country and sell information to our enemies, creating a new level of mistrust when these traitors could be our next-door neighbors, or even family members.
When a young pastor tries to enlist but is turned down for head-scratching reasons, his debonair, fun-loving cousin comes to the rescue. Or was this all part of some elaborate plan? Tyrell Walker gets to serve his country after all, just not on the European or Asian fronts. With his cousin Ben’s contacts, Tyrell is pulled into the underworld of espionage and given orders to find out who is selling secrets. He is given a position as a church pastor and a room in a boarding house which the government believes hides their target. Nearly every boarder, from the spunky elderly Miss Gertie, to the aspiring catty actress, the couple who always argues to the banker who seems to have a lot of late nigh crises at the bank, not to mention the owner of the boarding house who’s falling on hard times, is a potential spy. Tyrell has his work cut out for him, but his heart is truly in God’s corner and the pastorate is not just a cover. He is God’s servant first, an undercover agent second, and falling in love with his landlady, Emma Jaine. Can he keep all of these pieces of his life in control, or will he let his heart overrule his good judgement?
Brown uses period clothing, lifestyle and a lot of slang in her tale of life Stateside during the perilous era of World War II. Told in multiple viewpoints, the story opens with action, clues, and faith that God is in control during an era gone amok. For those who like inspirational period historical novels with lots of romance, relationship issues, and 1940s culture. Discussion guide included.
