Even Atheists Praise God, Says Author of New Book

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – Norwood, MO USA, Sept. 29, 2021 – Author Kenneth Wayne Hancock says that he has uncovered a Biblical secret. Everyone, including atheists and agnostics, is extolling God when they say the word “Hallelujah.”

He was reading Psalm 150:1 and noticed a footnote to the words “Praise the LORD.” It read, “Hebrew Hallelu Yah.” Intrigued, he looked both words up in several sources. Hallelu means “Praise.” Yah is the “name of the God of Israel” (“Yah” Wiki).

“I have heard and spoken the word ‘Halleluyah’ all my life,” Hancock said. “It is in hymns, pop music, movies, books and everyday speech. But no one ever told me what the word meant. We have been saying ‘Praise Yah” and did not even know it.”

Hancock said that this knowledge is a key that will help millions unlock even more Biblical mysteries. “God’s Hebrew name is important like our own names are important to us. The knowledge of His name was once a hidden secret,” Hancock said. “But God gets the last laugh. Even atheists are praising Him.”

Hancock shares more on this in his latest book, “The Eleventh Commandment.” Free promotional copies with free shipping are available to the public. To receive a copy, visit his website:

After serving in Vietnam, Hancock was a missionary in Mexico and Turkey. There he explored Mt. Ararat in search of Noah’s Ark. He taught 30 years at both college and secondary levels. He is founder of the non-profit Manchild Publishing. He is the author of “The Royal Destiny” and “The Unveiling of the Sons of God” among others.

Former Beauty Queen’s Life Story Helps Women Discover the True Beauty Within Them

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, September 21, 2021 — Author and inspirational speaker Norma Joyce Dougherty’s life story, Island Girl: A Triumph of the Spirit, was adapted into the new screenplay, Chasing Eden, which received recognition for Best Screenplay and Best Writer in the 2021 Christian Film Festival Awards.

Norma Joyce Dougherty knows all about the glitz and glamour that many women want. As a former Miss Dominion of Canada and contestant in Miss World, Miss Universe, Queen of the Pacific, and Miss International, beauty represented an escape to a better life. Having faced abuse and heartache as a young girl, Norma Joyce had an identity crisis once the spotlights dimmed on her new life.

“I believe any woman can have a meaningful purpose and an extraordinary life,” says Norma Joyce. “When women pursue perfection in mind and body but neglect their spiritual development, they feel paralyzed because of guilt, shame or failure.”

Norma Joyce understands the issues many women face every day. “Throughout my life, I struggled with many of the same issues that women in crisis deal with every day: belonging, abuse, neglect, abandonment, guilt, shame, and more. I overcame a broken heart, emotional neglect, and the pursuit of perfection to find joy and contentment in God’s purpose for me. I found my value, significance, and beauty in the Lord, and know you can too.”

Actress and screenwriter Sam Sorbo said, “I read Island Girl in about a day! I couldn’t put it down. Norma Joyce’s story resonated with me. I hope the film version can reach the millions of young women drifting in our damaging culture of conflicting messages and help them discover their ultimate worth in Christ.”

Norma Joyce recently unveiled a new website ( where women who want to discover the true beauty that lies within them can download a free chapter of her award-winning biography, Island Girl: A Triumph of the Spirit.

Island Girl: A Triumph of the Spirit is available wherever readers buy Christian books, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and

The 6 Ways You Can Recognize God’s Guidance for Your Life

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – Today, perhaps more than ever, people are asking, “what does God want me to do now”? The future may appear uncertain to many considering current events, but my lifetime of experiencing God’s guidance has taught me how to recognise His voice in the wilderness, including my time working as a pastor and doctor in Yemen during the Civil War, which I’ve written about in my latest book, Yemen.

At God’s direction, we have experienced dramatic and overwhelming changes to our lives. Firstly, we married, and that’s one of the biggest steps of faith you can take. Then over time, I transitioned from telephone technician to medical doctor, then specialist, and then ordained pastor.

We’ve lived in Papua New Guinea, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Yemen and the Northern Territory of Australia, with children in tow. You can read more about God’s guidance during our travels in my books ‘Stethoscopes, Kiaps and the Law of the Jungle,’ ‘To the City of the Great King,’ and ‘Yemen.’

So, how did God “engineer” those momentous changes? Simply, my wife and I learnt how to hear His voice. Below are six ways that you can recognise God’s guidance, which include some of the key ways we heard the voice of God in our daily lives:

  1. Read His word, and especially Proverbs 3:6, “In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” Claim that as a promise. Our part in that is to totally surrender to Him, really wanting His directions for life and obeying those directions when revealed. His part is to give us straight paths ahead with no forks. My book ‘Stethoscopes, Kiaps and the Law of the Jungle,’ covers the six years we lived in Papua New Guinea. The decision to relocate to PNG with three small children, and to go with patrol officers to uncontrolled cannibal areas, was a result of complete surrender to Him.
  2. Talk often (all the time) to Him. Discuss steps for clarification, “Really? Do you really mean that”? Such praying is indispensable for guidance.
  3. Pay attention to the lives, examples and words of other Christians. The idea of Bangladesh came to us from an unsolicited invitation to a meeting, where the speaker told us of the need for doctors in Bangladesh. The next day, we received a Christian newspaper with the headline “Doctor Needed for Bangladesh”. We were amazed (even trapped) and we had to think and pray about Bangladesh. Our mission, Interserve, ultimately also steered us to the needs and opportunities in Pakistan and Yemen, which is detailed in my latest book.
  4. The “wet and dry fleeces” method used by Gideon in the Old Testament (Judges 5). It basically meant asking God to do something nearly impossible as evidence of God’s leading. I’m not happy with that seemingly bizarre plan, but it’s in the Bible. It worked for Gideon and for my wife, Audrey, when she asked, in prayer, for the Director of the Health Department to personally ring me and ask me why I hadn’t applied for a job he had advertised. He called and I got the job!
  5. Another unlooked-for guidance step, physically unwelcomed, were our numerous health issues. Over a period of 70 years, there have been several major health problems giving rise to unexpected withdrawals from countries. Through the ironing out of circumstances, such as house, children, schools, money and so on, we saw God, who is in charge of our circumstances and surprises, and recognised Him straightening out our path as promised in Proverbs 3:6.
  6. The deep inner peace of God “which passes all understanding”, giving His seal to His plan. His plan wasn’t always easy and there had to be small, practical enabling steps like obtaining appropriate qualifications for the tasks ahead: a long-term plan to be completed before commencing the above; making arrangements for the children; obtaining finance to live and work overseas (including support from family and friends); winning government approval to change regulations; getting agreements for projects and the granting of visas.

The Lord has also guided us through 65 years of happy marriage, with 23 children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. And that has been our greatest adventure of all. He can do the same for you, too. So I encourage you, in these turbulent times, to seek the Lord with all your heart and to bring Him into every part of your life. You too can go on a wonderful adventure with Him – and you don’t even have to leave your home-town to do so.


Dr. Malcolm Dunjey is a medical doctor, ordained pastor and acclaimed author. Together with his wife, Audrey, he has worked in many countries, either for government or as medical missionaries. He has written four books published by Ark House: ‘To the City of the Great King,’136 Questions About God; ‘Stethoscopes, Kiaps and the Law of the Jungle,’, and his latest book on being a medical missionary, ‘Yemen,’.

Pastors Rave about the Most Effective Forgiveness Book that Empowers Even Those Traumatized by 9/11 to Find Inner Peace and Happiness

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif., Sept. 7, 2021 — Dr. Allen Gee, author, clinical psychologist, and spiritual life coach, continues to guide his readers to greater healing, inner peace, and happiness with his latest bestselling book, The Language of Deep Forgiveness: Break Free from Struggling to Accept the Unacceptable.

Unlike superficial guides that provide only trite answers, Dr. Allen’s work is a practical roadmap to unraveling the core causes of being unable to forgive. It is a deep multidisciplinary exploration of how faith, spirituality, and the sciences of the human mind intersect at the crossroads of empowering forgiveness.

Barbara Solis, Pastor of Family Counseling at the largest megachurch in Central California, Peoples Church in Fresno, CA, says “This is by far the most effective forgiveness book I have ever read. I give away many copies every week to help those struggling to forgive!”

Pastors and therapists have found The Language of Deep Forgiveness to be an invaluable resource for their churches and clients. It has produced dramatic forgiveness breakthroughs, quickly healing deep hurts and long estranged relationships. Today, Dr. Allen’s groundbreaking work is actively used by over 300 pastors at some of the largest churches in the U.S. and growing rapidly. Although written from a Christian worldview, this book can benefit readers from any background or religious tradition.

In The Language of Deep Forgiveness, Dr. Allen notes that deep forgiveness is often very difficult to achieve. Many people are trapped in their own bitterness and resentment despite having a sincere desire to be free from the bondage of their negative emotions. Dr. Allen helps them overcome common obstacles to forgiveness by answering key underlying questions such as, “How does the precise language you use to think about forgiveness in your mind affect how deeply you actually forgive in your heart?” and “What can you do when forgiveness seems to require you to accept those offenders you consider unacceptable?”

Such offenders would certainly include the terrorists responsible for 9/11. Dr. Allen exposes the “Acceptance Conundrum,” a common block to forgiveness which often keeps people stuck, struggling, unable to accept the unacceptable.

Reviewers describe The Language of Deep Forgiveness as “an interactive and invaluable resource” that changes lives. Unlike other books in the same field, readers are quick to note that Dr. Allen provides sophisticated and effective tools rather than platitudes to empower them to reach the inner peace they desperately seek. His work is truly one-of-a-kind and revolutionary.

Dave Schmelzer, Founding Pastor of Reservoir Church in Cambridge, MA, says “As someone who has taught about forgiveness many times, Dr. Allen Gee gave me tools I’ve never considered to the point that I took several moments to freshly forgive several people. If you feel stuck in moving on from ways you’ve been hurt, or if you teach others how to forgive, I’m confident you’ll find fresh ways forward here.”

Dr. Allen Gee has dedicated his life to helping others reach their spiritual best by embarking on a journey of deep forgiveness to inner peace, happiness, and enlightenment. He has a doctorate in clinical psychology from Trinity College of Graduate Studies and did his clinical training at Fuller Theological Seminary and Hope International University. Dr. Allen can be found online at ForgiveWell’s mission is to transform the Church and the world, one forgiver at a time, so that we can all live with inner peace and happiness. Its motto indeed is “Forgive well to live well!”

The Language of Deep Forgiveness: Break Free from Struggling to Accept the Unacceptable is available for purchase on Amazon or wherever books are sold ( Sample chapters can be read here. 93% of reviews are 5-star, making it a must-read guide on finding inner peace and happiness.
