Shidaanikei Publishers announce the upcoming publication of Shadows: Poetry, Tribute and Reflections (By Dianne Adair) ( ISBN: 978-1-9992257-3-5). There’s a force within us that fuels the fire and passion to fight, to speak up instead of implode. This stems from pain and suffering, for relief and release of the shackles that enslave us, the passion to right wrong, and the desire to have the shade that dims our light removed; the fight to survive despite our shadows. We all have a story and in this book of poetic expressions. It is told from the writer’s and other’s perspective. The pieces stem from a place of pain, of beauty despite the ugliness of life, of success despite failures; of peace and forgiveness, of timeliness and patience and of love and endurance. These words are birthed from the effects of hypocrisy, of racism, imperfections, failed relations, inadequacy and fear; but of hope in the midst of despair. Finding strength to survive, to learn from mistakes, to show love, to enact change and stand up for justice and humanity is the spark that will lighten the darkness and outshine the shadows of life. Life will never be perfect, but knowing that our spark,…

Jesus & The Seven Churches of Revelation
Top Story / February 1, 2020

Shidaanikei Publishers Incorporated is proud to announce the publication of Jesus & The Seven Churches of Revelation (2019) (ISBN: 978-1-9992257-1- 1)by Rev. Dr. Charles B. Mantey. Revelation was written by John who was one of the disciples of Jesus. Because of his faith as a Christian, he was banished the Roman Emperor to the Patmos Island. Jesus came to him in a vision and gave him messages to be given to the seven churches. These messages highlights some of the hidden things going on among the Christians in those churches.  These secrets plus other accounts in the book, aptly describe the name of the book – as “Revelation” (apokalypsis) which means, to expose in full view what was formerly hidden or veiled. The seven churches who were recipients of the messages from Jesus were; Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea. The common theme that runs through the messages to these seven churches was their suffering in the face of persecution. During this time, Emperor worship was at its height in all places under Roman authority. Anyone who refused to pay homage to Caesar by burning a pinch of incense and say, “Caesar is Lord” is persecuted. Apart from…

Shidaanikei Publisher is happy to publish Christianity as a Way of Life: Reflections on the Epistle of James (2019) (ISBN: 978-1-9992257-0-4) by Rev. Dr. Charles B. Mantey. The epistle of James is one of the earliest books of the New Testament. The author highlights Christianity as a tapestry of life.Our spiritual growth and maturity are never always pleasant; but, God in His wisdom uses trials and temptations to help us reach our spiritual and physical destinies. For this reason, Christians are admonished to pray for wisdom so we are able to discern the will of God for our lives during difficult times of our lives. The author addresses the problem of discrimination going on in the church; where the rich are given preferential treatment over the poor. James reminds the congregation about the frailties of human life and how Jesus died to save mankind irrespective of their status in life. Salvation therefore is by grace and not based on works. For this reason, Christianity therefore is not based on outward appearance so much as it does on character and faith in God. The epistle of James also cautions Christians to be wary of false teachers. They often sneak into churches…

It is also designed to address the trend that many who claim to be Christians who for lack of understanding tend to distinguish between what they call their ‘normal’ life from their Christian life. They live their Christian lives on Sundays and on days they gather to worship God. At other times, they live their ‘normal’ lives. The message in this book is that anyone who has become a Christian has only one life and that is the life of Christ, there is no ‘normal’ life.
