I am writing Christian non fiction books. My first book, The Perfect Storm: A Christian's Struggle with Depression, is now available on Amazon KIndle and paperback. The perfect storm refers to a particularly bad or critical state of affairs, arising from a number of negative and unpredictable factors. It is an expression that describes an event where a rare combination of circumstances will aggravate a situation drastically. In my case, it was a coming together of physical, spiritual and emotional issues at the same time, started by dengue fever while on the mission field in Thailand. Depression troubles many Christians. This book describes my struggle with depression and provides some biblical answers to deal with it.
My second book, Legacy and Ministry Adventures of Dana Bratton is also now available on Amazon, Kindle and paperback.
You will read of my adventures as a missionary to children in Child Evangelism Fellowship, my experiences as a hospital and hospice chaplain with the Health Care Chaplains’ Ministry Association, and my thrilling years as a YWAM missionary and Calvary Chapel pastor in Thailand. I have shared excerpts from many of my missionary newsletters through the years, describing wonderful things the Lord did. My intention is to let you know my thoughts and feelings about the life I have lived, to honor the relationships that have enriched my life, to express my gratitude for friends and family and my love for God. I want to share the life lessons I learned to know Him and to make Him known. I am very thankful for those who have prayed for and supported Cindy and me through the years. The most important thing in all of life is knowing God, having a relationship with Him. My life experience has taught me that God can always be trusted to guide and provide. God can use a sinner with few abilities to do great things for Him and take you around the world doing it. If you surrender to Him.
I hope this book will encourage aspiring pastors and missionaries; and will draw attention to the great need of evangelism especially among children, the sick, the elderly and in countries like Thailand, that are sometimes neglected by main stream Christianity. Ephesians 4:11-12 And He gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, Verse 12 gives the main job description of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers – that is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. That has been my life work to equip the saints, through preaching, teaching, and providing resources such as songs and flannel backgrounds, and web sites so that other believers can also do the work of the ministry. Find out what it's like for an ordinary man to do extraordinary things through pastoring, child evangelism, and hospital ministry. Read of how God worked to bring thousands of people to faith in Christ.t.
I expect to have 20 volumes in the New Testament Expository Sermons series, one set in English and one set in Thai.
This series of New Testament expository sermons I prepared and preached at Calvary Chapel at the Bridge in Phuket, Thailand. Useful for devotional study, sermons, and Bible studies. Lots of simple practical explanation and application. This is an evangelistic exposition verse by verse study of each book of the New Testament, with the ESV scripture alternating with NASB scripture included in the text followed by commentary, includes quotations from William Barclay, Jon Courson, David Guzik, Gotquestions.org, John Mac Arthur, J. Vernon Mc Gee, J.C. Ryle, Chuck Smith, and Warren Wiersbe. I pray that the messages will be a blessing to you. I preach and teach to “equip the saints for the work of the ministry,” to effect life change, to edify and encourage and to magnify the Lord. So that “every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.”
Currently volumes 1-6 are available, in Kindle and paperback. www.amazon.com
My latest book, Twelve Important Basics for Living and Growing as a Christian. Is a good handbook for all Christians but is especially suited for discipleship of new believers. It covers twelve important basics: To help the reader to be confident of salvation, to be a student of the Bible, a prayer warrior, active in church, happily married, victorious over sin, filled with the Holy Spirit, loving and forgiving others, a good and generous steward, a humble servant, and increasingly more like Jesus. The book includes an overview of the Bible with Scripture in the text alternating between the ESV and NASB translations.
