A couple important changes about the new book "Convert"...plus a few other words...

Hi Friends, it's been a while since I have written at any length on my blog. I have been posting, but it's been quick little snippets here and there. Things have been busy. Emilio planted a new church along with several families about 8 weeks ago. It's called "Heritage Grace Community Church" and is located in Frisco, TX and with that new adventure came the listing of our home. We desire to be closer to the new church but for now we are commuting from the Fort Worth area which has been loads of fun as we've carpooled and fellow shipped with other members on the way. Please pray with us that our home will sell (if God wills).  And on top of that, Emilio's book is nearly done which has been a true joy to be a part of. By the way, look at the cover and what is your initial pronunciation of the title? Some people say "Convert" as in: I'm a convert to Christianity others say, "Convert" as in It is God's job to convert the soul. So what do you think? I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment below telling me what your first reaction was to how you pronounce "Convert". And then click HERE and look for the first question to get the answer.

Also, thank those of you that are still read these posts. With all the things that you have going on and in this fast paced Facebook and Twitter world it is a blessing to know you are here. Even my atheist friends that used to keep me up all through the wee hours of the night answering your posts, I hope you all are well and that you've come to Christ! I mean that. I really hope that you have found forgiveness in Him.  In one of my recent blog posts I mentioned that Emilio's book "Convert: From Adam to Christ" would be released on July 1s,t but we had a few delays in printing and it will be in print (Lord willing) by mid July and then the big release (on places like Amazon, Barnes in Nobel, Family Christian, etc) will be Oct 1. That seems like a long way off but as you know, time fly's by rather quickly, doesn't it! The good news is that, pre-orders for the book are open at two places now: Bridge Logos and The Fish With Trish Store .

I'm so very excited about "Convert" and the potential encouragement that it may bring to the body of Christ.  Below is a snippet of what a few folks are saying (read more endorsements HERE).




"A truly insightful and readable modern-day Reformed treatment of the doctrine of conversion. If there is anyone who wants to get an outstanding explanation of what the Bible teaches on conversion and want to understand the federal representation of Adam and Christ CORRECTLY, instead of the countless inaccurate explanations offered, then this book by brother Ramos is a must-read."
                       - John w. Hendryx, Director of Monergism.com

"I plan on taking the whole church through Convert."
- Mike Sarkissian, Th. M: Pastor of Sovereign Grace Church of Perris, author of Before God: The Biblical Doctrine of Prayer

Evangelicalism could use a little house cleaning. The modern‐day message of "Say a prayer, sign your Bible, and you are now a Christian," has produced disastrous fruit yielding a bumper crop of false converts. Emilio's book will go a long way in bringing clarity to the all‐ important issue of salvation for the preacher and parishioner alike.
- Todd Friel, Host of Wretched TV and Wretched Radio

My initial reading of the title, was Convert in the context of "It's God's job to convert the soul."

I think the book is a wonderful idea and we can't wait to read it and promote it!

Blessings to both of you!

My initial reading was convert, the noun. Without reading the rest of the title, I thought it might be Emilio's testimony. I'm really looking forward to reading it; his description sounds so much better than my original thought! Are you going to do a Kindle version?

Prayers for your house and your new church. Blessings to you both.

Yes, we will be doing a Kindle, but you'll probably have to wait till the official release (Oct 1). Thanks for your prayers!

I read it as he converted, which is a problem :)

I know salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit, but I think its a great title because it seems like it will pique peoples interest. Most probably won't understand from Adam to Christ either.

BTW Trish are you still accepting handbag donations for tract bag giveaways?

Fish With Trish said...

Hi Melanie, Yes! What do you have in mind? Do you have a bag you'd like to send me? If so, send me a picture of it to my email: email@fishwithtrish.com and in the "subject line" type "handbag donation". Blessings!

Okay Trish! Will do this weekend. :)

I immediately thought of the noun, not the verb, as Adam and Christ are named below it giving me the impression it was about people, hence the people related noun seemed natural in that context.

Since I first saw it, I thought thought of it as a noun.

I was thinking convert like God converts the soul. Looking forward to this book coming out!!
