    (Promoting GRCAM In Urban America)

    in Culture

    I am inviting everyone on my friends list and in my social groups to participate on my  BlogTalkRadio show Friday April 24th 2015, for 30 minutes from 5:00PM to 5:30PM Central Time.  I will answer any questions you may have about my revised book or my virtual organization (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. You can contact me at (347) 324-5232. After you have purchased my book and if you agree with my plan to improve Urban America then I will have you as a guest on my show to talk about your business/ministry, music or whatever you want. If for some reason you are unable to connect with me on BTR then we can do voice chat in real time right after the show on Skype. My Skype screen name is manwell4mankind.


    My next topic I am going to discuss Prosperity theology from preachers of L.A. to Creflo Dollar. Preachers like Creflo Dollar, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Deitrick  Haddon, Pastor Jay Haizlip, Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Ron Gibson, and Pastor Wayne Chaney  are leading figures in the prosperity gospel movement. Prosperity theology, the health and wealth gospel, is a Christian religious doctrine that financial blessing is the will of God for Christians, and that faith, positive speech, and donations to Christian ministries will always increase one’s material wealth. Based on non-traditional interpretations of the Bible, often with emphasis on the Book of Malachi, the doctrine views the Bible as a contract between God and humans: if humans have faith in God, he will deliver his promises of security and prosperity. Confessing these promises to be true is perceived as an act of faith, which God will honor. Driving luxury cars, and living in nice homes are not people who dedicate their lives to God. The mission is about serving God and serving people. I was shock by the way the ministers flaunt their wealth.

    The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac, Best Book of 2015, Author Sharma Shields

    in Books

    When Eli Roebuck was a little boy, his mother left the family with a large, hairy creature that Eli would come to think of as a Sasquatch.  Author Sharma Shields joins host Linda Rez of Minstrel and Muse to discuss her incredible debut novel, The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac, Eli's quest to find and destroy the mythical Sasquatch, Mr. Krantz.  As the reviewer for The Stranger commented, "It's a hell of a book", the television rights have been secured and it's one of Entertainment Weekly and O Magazine's best of 2015.  


    Publisher's Notes:


    Eli Roebuck was nine years old when his mother walked off into the woods with "Mr. Krantz," a large, strange, hairy man who may or may not be a sasquatch. What Eli knows for certain is that his mother went willingly, leaving her only son behind. For the rest of his life, Eli is obsessed with the hunt for the bizarre creature his mother chose over him, and we watch it affect every relationship he has in his long life--with his father, with both of his wives, his children, grandchildren, and colleagues. We follow all of the Roebuck family members, witnessing through each of them the painful, isolating effects of Eli's maniacal hunt, and find that each Roebuck is battling a monster of his or her own, sometimes literally. The magical world Shields has created is one of unicorns and lake monsters, ghosts and reincarnations, tricksters and hexes. The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac is boldly imaginative throughout, and proves to be a devastatingly real portrait of the demons that we as human beings all face.
