Kerel-Collage-sm.jpg
On January 29th, 2016 Kerel Pinder released her first book; “The One Year Challenge.” Pinder says that The One Year Challenge - A new Journey to Love, Purpose & Courtship gives readers a very personal and transparent look into the relationships and experiences that led her to take a year off from dating as well as the ups and downs of what transpired during that year and the restoration God brought to her life at the end of it all.

“At 27 years old, I came to a crossroad in my dating relationship, which after a series of bad decisions, left me feeling broken, rejected and defeated. Fighting to hold onto the woman I am destined to be, I decided to give God the keys to my love life and that year began North Point Ministries founder and author Andy Stanley’s “One Year Challenge...

New Book by High-ranking Naval Officer Calls for Naming Bahamas Waters the Lucayan Sea - Jul 17, 2015 - 9:00:26 AM

sm-Captain-Tellis-Bethel.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - A high-ranking naval officer and author of several scholarly publications is calling for the majestic waters of The Bahamas and Turks & Caicos to be named the Lucayan Sea, declaring that the name not only pays fitting tribute to the islands’ original inhabitants but reflects the nature of Bahamians as a people of peace.

Captain Tellis A. Bethel, Acting Commodore of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, makes a strong and thorough argument for the naming of yet-anonymous waters in his new book, The Lucayan Sea, Birthplace of the Modern Americas (Outskirts Press.com). The book, available in hard copy and online for Kindle, takes the reader on a 90-page journey from the time the Lucayans welcomed Christopher Columbus to the New World to the continuing absence of a name for either the territorial waters extending up to 12 miles or the exclusive economic zone that extends up to 200 miles offshore...

Pictorial History and Memories of Nassau's Over-The-Hill - May 13, 2015 - 11:36:01 PM

S-Rosemary.jpg
In Rosemary C. Hanna's book, "Pictorial History and Memories of Nassau's Over-The-Hill" the author seeks to paint a picture of what life was like in the Over-the-Hill area of Grant’s Town and surrounding areas on the Island of New Providence, The Bahamas, beginning in the mid-nineteenth century following Emancipation, when the area was settled by freed slaves.  It includes a brief history of the settlement and development of the area, the role of the Church in that process, and introduces some of the families that lived Over-The-Hill.

"On my frequent drives through the old neighbourhood, I observed that most of the once lovely and immaculately maintained homes of my childhood had disappeared or were in a state of disrepair," said Hanna.
