A BOOK YOU NEED TO READ

A TRUE STORY
IN THE EYE OF DECEPTION
By Nikki Rosen 


Ordinarily I would not use my space on Spiritual Sundays to advertise a book or anything else. However, in this case I do so without any feeling of guilt. I am not advertising this book for my benefit but for yours. This is a book you need to read. Nikkie Rosen has a horrible story to tell and it needs to be told so people can be aware of what is going on in our world and also to see God helping those who cannot help themselves.

Nikki did not want to tell her story--she didn't want anybody to know. I believe the fact that her story is now in book form and out there for everybody to see is a God thing. Therefore I want to help her by calling her book to the attention of a major publisher. That's where you come in. All of you who read and write for Spiritual Sundays can help to advertise A True Story--In The Eye of Deception. Some of you are writers and have books of your own published. You may be able to help Nikkie by introducing her work to a major publishing company. Her book has only been printed by the University she attends in Canada and they have no way to circulate copies. The book has been well received by those who have read it and she received the Canadian Christian Writing Award.

The story Nikkie tells is hard to read because it is a horrible story of deception and horrendous abuse. But your heart will be touched by the movement of God in her life and the way she has become a victorious adult. It is amazing! Yesterday I found out she does not attend church on a regular basis. As a minister for forty-seven years you already know I believe everybody needs to be part of God's family--the church. So I'm telling you about Nikki and her book hoping that some of you will be able to help her in ways that I can't. I know you will pray and that is no small thing, but she needs more. I have put it out there now and I am trusting God to lead you to the next step.

You may read Nikki's post on Spiriutal Sundays by clicking on Sarah (I don't know why she writes under this name). You may read about her and her book at her website http://religiousdeception.blogspot.com/

Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

Clif,

I am so thrilled that people like Sarah share their stories with others in the blogging world to show that God can restore anyone no matter what circumstances life has handed them.

Wanted to wish you a great weekend!

Isn't Sarah a treasure?! She, like so many survivors, humbles me.
Certainly, I'm proud to support your efforts on her behalf!

That's a very generous thing to do, Clif. I wish I knew a way to get her book noticed. I'm so out of the know these days. The fact that it won an award--any award--is a great start. Perhaps she should seek representation through an agent. Just my thoughts.

Elizabeth Mahlou said...

How kind of you to help, Nikki. I have also been trying to help her. She really does need an agent. Maybe one will see your post and contact her.

Virginia said...

Thank you for sharing and many blessings for doing it.

I need to get Sarah's book, Clif. I want to help in any way I can so I'm praying and the comments give me clues! God began a work here and I know He will finish what He started.
