"In poetic prose Shirley describes the nature of God and the character of Christ with clarity, emotion, and passion. She boldly addresses traditional church doctrine giving her own personal insight and interpretation logically, using a common sense analysis. She includes foundational doctrines for living the spiritual life courageously with determined intention. In a concise, yet complete, Bible summary, Cheng covers important events and a review of the important themes of the entire Bible from Genesis through Revelation." -Dr. Richard R. Blake for Reader Views, Doctor of Ministries, Former Instructor at Bay Cities Bible College
"...this book deserves to sit on the shelf next to the Bible...Shirley has all of the properties, emotions, logic and spiritual being that (Jehovah) was hoping to instill in each one of us.
Shirley may be in a wheelchair, but has walked the universe. She may be blind but see's the true color and beauty in the world, the people and in life. Shirley has found a way in her writing, to open our eyes to the world around us, the blessings bestowed upon us, the path to follow and the life that is yet to come." -Jan Hayner, Professional Organizer, Motivational Speaker and Personal Coach, www.OrganizingAndCleaning.com
"(Shirley) could preach a sermon with the best of the 18th century preachers." -Laura Evans, United Methodist Church Pastor's Wife, Certified Instructor Journal to the Self®, www.JournalJoy.com (site up in September)
(Shirley's) ability to express her feelings, knowledge, and passion come through so clear in her writing--it is obvious she was born to teach and change people's lives.
Her grassroots story telling makes this book an excellent read for individuals who haven't made the time to read the Bible. She has clear and concise ability to pin-point the most meaningful and beneficial points to live by through the word of God.
Shirley's courage is contagious and I am envious of her passion and simplicity to explain her thoughts of faith in such a crisp and knowledgeable fashion. Shirley is a true leader where so many individuals fear to walk; a courageous teacher, her wisdom is fraught with urgency to reach others and spread her given talent. Where people lack to express their true feelings of God; Shirley's courageous soul is free to articulate her acknowledged belief system without judgment. I honor her experience of the Bible and respect her aptitude to express her commitment to God.
This book would benefit anyone who has feelings of loss, loneliness, anger, selfishness, and low self worth.
Great for children to learn the foundation their life was built upon." -Trish Lay, Life Coach, Speaker, Founder of Souls At Play Productions, www.SoulsAtPlayProductions.com
"...a Christian inspirational guide encouraging readers to look towards God for the guidance and help in their lives...well worth considering for Christian readers." -Midwest Book Review, Small Press Bookwatch
"Jehovah is not about a new shiny car or winning a political election, Jehovah is about eternal love and goodness for all. He wants nothing more for this world that He created than a spiritual balance and harmony.
Shirley Cheng's hopes are in passing to her readers an insight to a deeper knowledge of God's Word and Plan and also just maybe answer questions we all have pondered such as these:
• Have you ever wandered about the bible and its meaning?
• Why should I follow Jehovah's guidance and not some other religion?
• Who is really Jesus and what is his purpose?
• If Jesus already died for us, then why are we still being told we have a judgment day?
• Do you think we are predestined?
• Do you value your gift as it was meant to be valued?
• Is there really a hell or a devil?
• Who is Satan and his fallen angels?
• What is the meaning behind the 10 Commandments?
• Why is there so much suffering allowed in this world?"
-Dorothy Lafrinere, Women's Self-Esteem Expert, www.WomensSelfEsteem.com
"...a treasure of real answers that offer each of us a wonderful hope...a compelling read to move us to our part in the Divine purpose...a thorough witness to our Grand God, Jehovah." -Susanne Morrone, C.N.C. Author, Consultant, www.NaturalHealthChat.com
"[Shirley's) common sense analysis of the Bible will shock mainstream Christianity. She arouses logical questions and presents answers based on the Bible..." -Maria D. Georga, MBA, Author of Killing the Cancer Beast, Greece, http://FreeSpiritWay.blogspot.com
"The dedication, the love, the joy and happiness which radiates from Shirley Cheng's writing is so pure, so inspiring, so enchanting that I must compare it to the beauty in The Song of Solomon." -Ragnhild Munck, Author of Days of Goodbyes, www.DaysOfGoodbyes.com
"Shirley Cheng writes in the same manner she lives life: courageously. She is not afraid to tackle the tough questions we ask when we study the Bible, and she is not afraid to present the answers she finds therein. She doesn't worry about popularity or critics; she is all about the questions, the logic, and the Scriptures, as she understands them." -Carolyn Warren, Author, Mortgage & Credit Expert, www.AskCarolynWarren.com
"Shirley Cheng's book is elegantly written. With simplicity and competence she answers the most important questions every human being sooner or later asks him/herself. Her faith in God, who she teaches us to call Jehovah, and her deep knowledge of the Bible, guides her pen and offers explanations to colossal mysteries such as the purpose of life, the place of worry, the value of success, the meaning of death, what is destiny. But most of all, I would recommend this reading, because of the joy of life and the gratitude she transfused in the book. At times, I felt the need to kneel in front of such total deep happiness, coming from a person that knows suffering very well. Now, in times of crisis, we only hear lamentations. Read this book and you will learn how to thank God for every breath we take each day." -Maria Caterina Capurro, Life, Business & Sports NLPTM Coach, Italy, www.CoachingServices.it
"Anyone facing life's adversities, uncertain and looking for encouragement, hope, a pathway to faith and a spiritual connection, MUST read this book." -Gladys M. Anderson, M.Ed., CTACC, LMFT, Empowerment Coach, www.CoachForYourDreams.com

Moreover, she stands as a beacon of light, a shining example to everyone, that no matter what excuses we may think we have, we can still walk in the path of righteousness." -Bill White, The Synchronicity Expert, www.SynchronicityInYourLife.com
"Shirley Cheng in deciding to write about a sometimes difficult subject to get the regular person to read about, has done so in a simple yet powerful way. Anyone wondering about Scripture or going through reading the Scriptures themselves can benefit by experiencing Shirley's views." -Liz Cosline, Author, Life Ownership Coach, http://SongOfOneUnexpectedLife.info
