With and Without Her is a story that, when told directly, shuts people up, the kind of story that drives people to change the subject, or cross the street when they see the teller coming. In 1949, author Dorothy Foltz-Gray and her identical twin sister, Deane, were born. In 1981, Deane, then a psychologist, was fatally shot by one of her patients. In the years between, the pair formed an almost supernaturally close bond, one so intimate that at times, their memories fused and their individual identities dimmed.
Here, Foltz-Gray, an award-winning poet and journalist, recounts not only the extraordinary phenomenon of growing up in a world that could not distinguish her from another human being, but also the struggle to survive More >
Edward F. Mrkvicka, Jr’s new book, ”The Sin of Forgiveness,” reveals the shocking truth about forgiveness.
Award winning author and minister, Edward F. Mrkvicka, Jr. is pleased to announce the release of his new book, “The Sin of Forgiveness.” This new work discusses the important subject of how to biblically forgive and be forgiven
Today’s forgiveness does just the opposite of what forgiveness is supposed to do – put another way, secular forgiveness causes more harm than good. The one doing the forgiving is never made whole again, while the one sinning is left in the same wretched condition. But true Christian forgiveness is a blessing to all. After reading “The Sin of Forgiveness,” readers will know the beauty of true Christian forgiveness, perhaps for the first time.
“The Sin of Forgiveness” is a well-written and easy to follow commentary on the confusion in the Christian church today concerning forgiveness. Its author, Edward F. Mrkvicka, Jr. points out that because many Christians have mixed biblical forgiveness with worldly “wisdom,” they are at risk of disobedience to God and have put their salvation at risk.
