Reading Author Wolf's book Praise! Learning to Praise the Lord in Every Circumstance has brought me to a place of gratitude. When she asked me if I wanted to read her short book and write a review, I would have never imagined the encouragement it would produce in me. As I read, it was like every word was from the mouth of God Himself, ministering to my own situation. Praise reveals the love that God has for us and is a testimony to the truth that sheds light on the lie Satan tells and his strategies against God's children. When you read Praise!, it will draw you into the very presence of God. ~ Tierra Brown
By the time I made it through chapter seven of Praise, all my toes were hurting from being stepped on. And you know what? I am grateful for it! Too often, in this day and age, people are afraid to speak hard truths that can potentially change lives, but not this book! Praise by Alexys V. Wolf does not hold back as the reader is forced to face the good and sometimes hard truth about the necessity of praise in the life of a believer. In twenty-one short but powerful chapters, Wolf calls every last one of us Bible-toting, verse-quoting Christians to a place of transparency and accountability. This book is a holy reality check that forces the reader to face the truth about how the absence of praising God looks while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of living as if we believe who God says He is and that He has the power to do what He says He will do. Praise is a refreshing and much-needed wake-up call for those who may have become complacent in their faith. It challenges readers to examine their lives and how they express their faith, encouraging them to live authentically and praise God in every aspect of their lives. Wolf’s writing is engaging and thought-provoking. She tackles deep and profound topics with clarity and passion, making it easy for readers to connect with the message she conveys. Praise is a book that challenges its readers and provides them with the tools and motivation to live a life that is truly reflective of their faith. If you’re looking for a book that will shake up your perspective and inspire you to live a more authentic and praise-filled life, Praise is a must-read! Wolf’s unapologetic approach and powerful message make this book a valuable addition to any believer’s library. After all, who doesn’t love a little tough love disguised as a good read? ~ Author and Poet Vicki Thomas
Why God allows suffering is a question many Christians ask, especially while experiencing pain and uncertainty in their lives. Meanwhile, the non-believer may ask, “If there is a God, why does he allow suffering especially to good people?” This certainly is a question that has spun through the ages. It has now been tackled by Author and Minister Alexys V. Wolf in a truly masterful book as she methodically and clearly shares her thoughtful and scriptural reasons. Author Wolf helps us understand suffering can be for our good and God’s glory wrapped in much love by the One who sacrificed everything for our ultimate benefit. “Suffering: What’s Its Purpose?” certainly stands out as a treasure of great worth. It is difficult to lay aside until it has been read from cover to cover! This book is a masterpiece and was a blessing to me, which I am passing on to others. ~ Dr. Loreen Itterman, International Missionary with Global Faith Mission, Chattanooga, TN

Having read all forty of Author Wolf’s books, this is my new favorite. It is a must-read for every human being because everyone is or will suffer—this world is full of suffering of every kind. This book details how to suffer without it killing and severely marring us. As the author explains, we all need a new perspective. For too long, the body of Christ has attempted to misuse Scripture to quickly make suffering or obstacles disappear, so we do not have too much anguish. However, the Bible paints a very different picture. Jesus suffered and with a cause. When we suffer, it also has purpose and meaning. Suffering: What’s Its Purpose opened my eyes to a new vantage and I am incredibly grateful. I hope everyone will read this book and heed the author’s words. ~ Pamela Scholtes, editor
People have innumerable questions about God’s Word, how God functions, why things happen, what we are to do in certain situations, and so much more. This was often my experience growing up, and I was waiting for someone to answer. Sometimes, when questions are posed to clergy, and they do not know the answer, the person is made to feel small and stupid for having asked and left with even more questions. They are often told, “Just trust God,” when they may not know how. Their actual question may be, “How do I trust God.”
This scenario should not be. The Bible is rich and bountiful, with answers to questions anyone can pose. Not all responses will be agreeable to the asker, but they are answers. It is common for people to have no clue how to apply what they’ve been taught. “How do I apply God’s Word to everyday life?” is a phenomenally unanswered question among Christ’s body, as sad as it is to admit. It certainly warrants an answer.
It’s time for God’s people to stop being afraid of questions, both the one asking and the one asked. Questions are my favorite because I will search if I don’t know the answer. This way, both parties can grow in our knowledge of God. I never pretend to know something when I do not, and I never make someone feel “less than” for not knowing everything under the sun. Most of us have heard the expression, “There are no dumb questions.” This is true because even if the questions sound dumb to one person, they are not to the one inquiring. I was once a lost person, though saved from hell, in dire need of answers to my plethora of questions. As a result, I feel other people’s pain in the predicament where I once found myself.
I had been in church my whole life. Still, after a horrible marriage and divorce, I had no idea what to do with myself or my questions, “How do I forgive? How do I forget? How do I heal from the damage done to me? How do I release my hatred and bitterness, rage, and fury? How do I learn to trust again? How do I learn to love again? How, Lord, do I do the things You require since I’m only human?”
These questions and more are addressed in this four-volume series. It began as one book but grew so large I had to split it four ways. I cannot cover every question ever posed nor the full extent of each answer, but it’s a start. People need to know it is OK to ask seemingly trivial questions. Ministers across denominations need to realize it is not shameful to not know an answer. It is never acceptable to belittle someone in their insecurity or lack of knowledge. Many of these topics have been discussed in my other books. Because of that, I will utilize my previous writings in this book since it aims to compile information in one central location. Let us journey through the rough terrain together to benefit from the Word of the Lord.
This book series is not about making people see my perspective but to cause God’s body of believers to think beyond traditional religiosity. Scour the Word. Ponder my thoughts and allow Holy Spirit to help you rightly divide His truth.
Once again, Alexys has taken a hard topic and pushed through each aspect to reveal deep truths. I enjoyed the read. I particularly appreciate those times when she admits not knowing how God does what He does with the Holy Spirit, just that He does it. I agree. I loved the illustration Author Wolf provided of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It's a great visual to help others understand Their identity. My thoughts about the Holy Spirit in how He works in the past and present are simple. God works in a way that best connects to His people. God provides what we need when we can handle it and in the way we can handle it. I do think the way He manifested His Spirit in the O.T. is much the same as in the N.T. and now.
As Alexys mentioned, God does not change. He was the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit before the world was created, in the O.T., in the N.T., and now. While humans don't change, per se, our society does. Such changes can influence how we think, act, and believe. Our ways of sinning, level of understanding, and circumstances around us change. Presently, sinning is just more technical or complicated. We still sin with the same basic selfish, self-serving, money grubbing, lustful, and egotistical ways. However, society is not the same as it was in the O.T. and N.T. God may see a need we don't see to approach things a little differently while still reaching out in much the same way to help His people. I don't understand, but I will continue looking for better ways to grow closer to God. I finally realize I do not have to understand every detail of God to develop a strong relationship of love with Him. I simply need to trust Him and see [appreciate] the big picture He gives me.
In summary, Alexys lends great Scriptures to support her points. Mrs. Wolf is clear and comprehensive in her explanation on every view of the Holy Spirit. I can't think of any other perspective or issues about the Holy Spirit she hasn’t covered. She did nice work! Alexys is living proof of the Holy Spirit at work in God's people. Her writing reflects God moving through her. This is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the Holy Spirit. ~ Doris Hawkins, Ph.D.
First, I am honored that this book's fantastic author and my precious friend would ask me to give my heartfelt endorsement. Right off the bat, the most important thing is if you don't want your life changed and your heart tugged, do not read this book. But if you do, I can assure you it will definitely do those two things! I read the introduction and couldn't stop crying. This is a Holy Spirit-anointed book. We have all been found in Satan's sinking sand at one time or another. I'm so thankful Author Wolf shares some hard, solid, and necessary truths in this book about building our lives on The Rock, Jesus, and not spending useless energy trapped in Satan's sinking sand. I know you will be blessed and inspired by this book, The Rock: All Other Ground is Sinking Sand. ~ Tammy Bogle, Pastor and Founder of Passionate Praises Women's Ministries, Oklahoma
I have endorsed many of Author Wolf's books because they're all so revelatory to me. I can read them repeatedly and still glean new insight. The Rock is incredibly powerful and eye-opening. I suppose I had never considered the Rock, Jesus, though I know the Bible references Christ as such. This book is impressive, and I can't wait to reread it. Alexys digs into the Word and expounds upon it in such a way that anyone can understand. She doesn't mince words! Her plain speech allows new or old Christ-followers to see what the Father has unfolded to her. I cannot rave enough about how everyone should read this. It is a must-read! ~ Pamela Scholtes, editor for The Fiery Sword Publications
Just as I Am is a thought-provoking book that invites the reader to take a poignant look in the mirror at those things that are hard to relinquish. In this eye-opening guide to understanding sin and God, the author pours out scripture and explanations about who we are and who God is. From the harsh, uncensored self-examination to the stark contrast of God and the realization of what is lacking in our relationship with God, Alexys V. Wolf takes us on a journey and forces us to see the ugliness of sin and the holiness of God. This vast contrast helps the readers to see why God should be feared and how that fear paves the way to loving God more deeply. Excellent read! ~ Doris L. Hawkins, Ph.D.
Alexys V. Wolf is a very gifted teacher and author, having found the truth in the Way of Jesus Christ. So much of what is taught in the Christian world is nebulous, vague, and not always actual Biblical truth. Alexys has been gifted with the Truth of the Word and communicates it clearly, simply, and powerfully. You cannot go wrong in considering what she has to say. "Just As I Am" is a very powerful book, and despite its short length, it packs a powerful punch! I loved how you addressed all the—sadly—common mindsets we often carry around with us so thoughtlessly. We are changed when we come to Christ, but we tend to retain our inner dialogue, and it requires endless diligence to conform to the mind of Christ. I struggle regularly, and I sometimes feel all I do is forgive people and repent of my dark thoughts, over and over, all day long. The entire book is a delightful read! I especially loved that she inserted "submission" into it all because that does not get addressed quite as well in the church as it ought. Author Wolf has done a spectacular job of expressing what it is and how to do it. ~ Greyson Stoehr, Author and Artist
From the moment I started reading, Just As I Am grabbed my attention! This book is absolutely captivating! A lot of what Author Wolf discussed should be common knowledge, but it is not. Her topics are simple, yet things most never think about. I will be reading Just As I Am over and over because there is so much to glean, much like her book Looking for God, which I have read many times over. God’s people need to come out of their comfort zone and into conviction unto righteousness. This book is profoundly inciteful with a nonjudgmental perspective. Mrs. Wolf is clear, concise, and pulls no punches to help God’s people truly walk in the freedom He provided on the cross. When she broke down the fear and awe of the Lord, it blew me away! I had never thought of it the way she described it. The author lends many Scriptures for the reader to quickly see her references. I love that she places the Scriptures within the pages, so the reader doesn’t have to scrounge to look them up since many people don’t know how to easily navigate the Bible. There are too many great things about this book to mention here, but it is a must-read for anyone anywhere! ~ Verdonna Street
When I read the title, I was honestly not sure in which direction this book was going; maybe it would be yet another lengthy cliché about how everything happens for a reason. The Table of Contents piqued my interest and I wanted to see how the work would unfold. Wolf went out of the gate running as she explained how God is in control. It was not what I expected! Her statements were bold and raised many questions for me, but then she backed her claims with textual evidence straight from the Word of God. If this was a persuasive essay or speech, I would have been won over to her side, which is really the Lord’s side. “Most Christians want a nominal amount of Jesus, just enough to get to heaven.” Goodness gracious. That statement stopped me in my tracks, and I let out an audible “whew” as I read it! It’s a sad truth in the lives of many. But this book helps readers understand why we must go deeper. Whether you are new in the faith, a clergy member, or not even a believer at all, this book is for YOU. You’ll be engaged, exhorted, encouraged, and equipped to move forward in your personal walk with Christ! ~ Amber Jones, English teacher and mother
I am seventy-two years old. I have been in church nearly my entire life. Never have I come across such an anointed writer as Author Wolf. I have read every one of her thirty-six books, and each one is full of wisdom, revelation, and easy-to-read exposes on how to apply God’s Word to everyday life. In Alexys’ new book, “No Uh-Ohs in Jesus,” she uncovers things I have always wondered about but never could quite land on an accurate explanation. This little book is packed full of heavenly insight, and every Christ-follower should read it! ~ Pamela Scholtes, The Fiery Sword Publications Editor
Having been in ministry for as long as I can remember, even dating back to adolescence, I have witnessed one common thread—lack of discipline. When I walked away from God for seven years in my hurt and pain, my problem was the same—a lack of self-discipline. Now in my mid-fifties and in full-time ministry, the problem remains. It has gained momentum given the world’s current mindset of “If it pleases me, I have a right to act on my feelings.”
There is a serious lack of discipline from parents to their young children, leaving mainstream society at the mercy of future undisciplined adults. Where there is no discipline, there is only folly and destruction. The Lord is clear about discipline, either from our leadership or self. Suppose parents refuse to lead their kids into maturity through discipline. In that case, they will inevitably run amuck, leaving quite a wake. In this little book, I will break down several Scriptures about discipline and hopefully help people understand why it is necessary and how to exact it with efficacy.
Whether you grew up in church or not, it is common knowledge that forgiveness is healthy. Even atheists understand this concept. For the Christ-follower, we definitely know we are commanded to forgive our enemies—seventy times seven [490x] or seventy-seven times. Either way, it is a lot of forgiving! Nevertheless, the most devout Christ-followers often struggle with forgiveness beyond the surface.
I grew up in church. Forgiveness was commonly taught. I wanted to forgive, and it came readily to me. However, when my first marriage fell apart, and horrible things were done to me, forgiveness became impossible. Intellectually, I knew to forgive. I wanted to forgive, but it eluded me. No matter how many times I prayed, “Lord, help me forgive him,” it didn’t take. When I finally thought I had succeeded, I ranted about how despicable he was as soon as his name was mentioned. Clearly, my verbal forgiveness statement was inactive.
What was I to do? How could I forgive such heinous acts against me? Obviously, willing myself to forgive him was ineffective. Feeling like I should do it was inconsequential. Thinking it would be the correct action didn’t help me. What Christ-followers often miss is how to function in the supernatural of God. Many remain soulish instead of arising to the spiritual led by God’s Spirit. Man’s soul is comprised of the mind, will, and emotions. The mind consists of our intellect, memories, and imagination. My soul [mind, will, and emotions] was ill-equipped to execute forgiveness for the evil thrust against me, no matter how hard I tried.
One of my staple sayings is, “There is no trying. There is only doing.” We can try until the cows come home, but we will fail unless we allow God’s supernatural forgiveness to flow through us. This little book intends to bring the body of Christ into higher thinking, as commanded, so we will stop trying in our natural condition to do what can only manifest supernaturally through God’s Spirit living within the believer.
Life is messy. Despite our best efforts, there are inevitable struggles and challenges throughout life. No one is exempt; regardless of race, gender, generation, relationship, or socioeconomic status, there will, at some point, be a struggle and subsequent residue. There is a better way, though. A life of freedom and power despite the challenges. A life beyond what we could think or imagine. This is the resonating message in “Living Beyond Life’s Residue.” Alexys proposes a life of grace and mercy stemming from the most authentic relationship that exists. A better way to speak and think and tools to finally break free from the repetitive cycle of self-destruction. Author Alexys Wolf has become a friend and great encourager in my own life. Alexys is a practitioner of living beyond life’s residue and regularly leads others to embark on their own spiritual journey into a life beyond residue—a counterintuitive strategy for a population accustomed to instant gratification and ideological conformity. I highly recommend the life-changing and applicable information Alexys presents in this easy read. ~ Keeley D. Burgan
As a deliverance minister, I found new insight into the age-old problem of the "yuck" we allow to reside in our lives. Alexys does a tremendous job of explaining the symptoms. She lends the strategy for overcoming the injury and breaks down the healing process. I found this book to be an easy and interesting read. When I started reading, I had just returned from a long trip and was exhausted. I wanted to at least get started. Once I started, despite my tiredness, I could not put it down! When she explained the difference between "wounds" and "scars," it really grabbed my attention. I had to keep reading! I genuinely believe there are lessons I need to learn from "Living Beyond Life's Residue." I had never thought about the residue in our lives until I started reading Author Wolf's book. It is definitely food for thought. I will be rereading it. I highly recommend this book to anyone trying to understand and formulate a plan for "Living Beyond Life's Residue." ~ Deliverance Minister and Author Connie L. Storey
My mother has written an amazing book once again! I sat down one day to help her edit Living Beyond Life’s Residue. As I was reading, I found myself constantly thinking how well written it is and how many people it could help. Living Beyond Life’s Residue perfectly executes how deep residue really is and how to properly heal from it. LBLR is life-changing and a must-read for anyone of any age! ~ Sophia Wolf
“Living Beyond Life’s Residue” is a great read! I love the way her words come together. I especially like the section on self-awareness—it really resonated with me. She explains the difference between being self-aware and self-focused. That was enlightening. The good Lord was truly with Author Wolf for this inspiration. This is a must-read! ~ Ryan Gipson, Founder of Ryland Grace Foundation
Alexys V. Wolf is not only a superb writer and communicator, but she is also a woman with great insight and discernment. She is unwavering when it comes to staying on biblical track. Alexys, with her many years in ministry and working in the field with many broken, hurt, and victimized individuals, has an understanding of their pain's root cause. She has a passion for seeing people walk in their God-given freedom and come out of the bondage of sexual sin. "A Nation's Achilles Heel" is a practical and biblical-based writing that is a must-read for everyone! It is very well written and easy to understand. The many levels of sexual sin are spelled out very clearly. This will be eye-opening for many, as they may not have seen these choices as sexual sin. ~ Gaye Vause, Co-Director of Life Choices Pregnancy Care Center, Aiken, SC
As The Fiery Sword Publication’s editor, this is one of my all-time favorite books from Alexys—and I have read and loved them all! Achilles is not only biblically sound, but it also reveals sexual immorality’s physical, mental, emotional, and financial aspects affecting the world. I believe pastors need to get this book and use it to help their congregants come out from underneath their blatant or hidden sexual sins. This teaching is rarely taught anymore, and it is killing all involved. Teachers, preachers, pastors, prophets, apostles, and Sunday school teachers desperately need this little book and should not be afraid to share it. It is small but packed full of biblical insight and national statistics. Author Wolf’s insight is prophetic and should not be ignored by anyone called by the name of Jesus. ~ Mary P. Scholtes, editor
"A Nation's Achilles Heel" is a necessary work for the Church and the Nations. We have compromised with sexual sin in ever-increasing measures over the years. We are clearly living with the consequences of these choices. As the director of a pregnancy care center, I see firsthand the price children, women, and men pay for sexual sin. Author Alexys V. Wolf gives an accurate picture of where we are as a nation awash in sexual debauchery. Even though I encounter much of what she writes about on a daily basis, I saw new facets of this epidemic that I had not thought of before reading this book. I guess the part I love the most is that Wolf does not leave one with the hopelessness that could occur from these facts and figures. She ends with the hope of the Cross, repentance, and restoration. Everyone needs to read this critical expose. ~ Kathryn Wade, Executive Director, Life Choices Pregnancy Care Center, Aiken, SC
Alexys V. Wolf has yet turned out another book of Biblical insight. As with her other many books she endeavors to bring understanding and enlightenment to her readers with great success. While on a trip I took her new manuscript with me and thought I would just skim through it quickly as to get an overall view which would enable me to write an endorsement. I know her pretty well considering we are partners in ministry of many different avenues. I couldn’t skim this work, I read every word. When I finished, I stopped to let what I had read sink in. My first response was two words, fierce and fearless! “A Nations Achilles Heel: Perils of Sexual Immorality, addresses an issue that has brought our nation to a point of spiritual darkness andhas demoralized us as a nation. Author Wolf tackles this subject without apologies. She fearlessly and fiercely exposes sexual sin from a Biblical and economic standpoint. This book should be given to every person in America. We must take note of the seriousness of this particular path of destruction and repent. Bravo Author Wolf for calling out this way of life which we as a nation have accepted as a standard!. ~ Author and Minister Sandy Renner, SC
Alexys Wolf is brave and ambitious to tread into an area that can be treacherous and confusing for many people. Determining and embracing the truth is both challenging and scary. Author Wolf explains the difference between well-known and/or widely accepted clichés, and God’s truth. Her views are clearly explained and supported by Scripture. Even if one does not agree with her views, this is a thought-provoking read that guides one to seek the truth. ~ Doris L. Hawkins, Ph.D.
I want to extend my support and recommendation for Learning to Digest the Truth by Author Alexys V. Wolf. This book is perfect for anyone seeking God and those who already believe. I admire her strength to demonstrate honesty, regardless of the cost, however big or small. There is power in her description emphasizing the negative impact of a lying tongue versus the truth. She proves this when she wrote in chapter 11, “We must first learn to be honest with ourselves. In so doing, it will change the course of our actions.” I could go on and on about how deeply impactful this book has been for me. While reading Learning to Digest the Truth, you will begin to see her unfailing faith and desirable love for God as she describes how we can all reach our full spiritual potential. Alexys also includes biblical references to research the truth, allowing you to see the facts that back how she drew her conclusions. ~ April D. Moulton
Learning to Digest the Truth is so good! I love its straightforwardness—it cuts to the chase. Thank you, Alexys, for the privilege to write an endorsement! In a society where controversy, contradiction, and deceit are out of control, this latest book by my friend, Author Alexys V. Wolf, Learning To Digest the Truth Without Choking, is a must-read. It is not filled with flowery imagery, but neither is the truth. She writes with straightforward and solid conviction. I'll refrain from listing the many quotes I highlighted. Just read it. You will not be disappointed! ~ Lyn Westafer, International Christian Recording Artist
Out of Obscurity—Helping Women Find their Kingdom Power and Purpose is prolific author Alexys Wolf’s latest application of biblical truth to the modern church. As in her many previous books, Alexys applies the principles of God’s Word to the body of Christ as she dives deeply into a critical question: How can women bring their unique identity and calling to modern Kingdom ministry? Out of Obscurity answers the question by allowing every woman leader in the Bible to speak for herself. From Eve’s story in the first chapters of Genesis through the amazing experience of the adulterous woman with Jesus in John’s gospel, we see that women from the beginning of biblical history have been a unique and indispensable part of the revelation of God’s Kingdom. Nothing says it better than the chapter on Deborah and Jael—a prophetess and a housewife who together executed God’s judgment on a king. The two women were able to do what a kingdom full of men could not. ~Dr. Mike Turner, Senior Pastor, Lexington Baptist Church, SC
Out of Obscurity is a magnificent compilation of women mentioned in the Bible. Each one made an impact on Biblical history. While I have read and studied Bible stories that include these women throughout my life, this book has opened my eyes to see how one simple act or one short moment in time can change the outcome of life and affect world history. I hope reading Out of Obscurity awakens you to how important every decision we make and every action we take affects not only our own lives but the lives of others both now and forever. ~Judy Folk, NC
Alexys V. Wolf's book, Out of Obscurity, is truly an inspiration and testament to the many women of the Bible. This book awakened in me a newness of who I am and how I have and can make an impact in life today. Some such powerful women caused great movements in the history of life. Viewing their lives and journeys stirred a fire within me to know that God has a great purpose in each of us, no matter how insignificant we may think we are—people of God with a servant's heart. Author Wolf has laid down the written journey of those women for all to see. Author Wolf causes her reader to reflect on who, what, when, and how every woman can make a powerful impact on life's history yet to come. ~Carolyn McConnell Glymph, The Potter's Christain Life Center, SC
In her book, Extinguishing the Inferno of Anger, preacher and intercessor Alexys Wolf challenges every believer to deal with anger before it deals with them. Sure, there are times when anger can be the expression of righteousness but it’s more commonly a sign of emotional immaturity and spiritual bondage. As Alexys says, our anger becomes sinful when it flows from our pride and sense of entitlement.Extinguishing the Inferno of Anger takes us through many common experiences in which anger is the default response—race relations, politics, religion and illness to name a few—and brings us to a better way. Like the Old Testament figure Daniel, we can choose to live in faith and peace even in circumstances where everything in us cries out to give into anger. Ten years ago the Lord sent Alexys Wolf to my church with a singular mission: to stand alongside my wife and me in ministry and be our strong support in prayer and intercession. She has done just that and along the way taught us much about spiritual maturity. I’m excited that she’s now taken some of the wisdom and revelation the Holy Spirit has given to her and written it down so that others might be blessed, too. ~Dr. Mike Turner, Senior Pastor Lexington Baptist Church, SC
Extinguishing the Inferno of Anger is yet another amazing self-examination book by author Alexys Wolf. Her use of Scriptures and personal stories really caused me to examine my own heart and to realize the anger I had in me. She breaks down each Scripture and makes it so that I can relate personally to the wisdom in God's words. Each chapter felt like it was written directly for me. ~Charlene Race, SC
I wanted to read Extinguishing the Inferno of Anger so I could better understand others, BUT, it cut to the heart for me, myself, beginning in the first chapter. This continued throughout the book. I love how Alexys has focused on each cause of anger in separate chapters. It is evident that much thought and prayer has preceded her writing such a complete composite on anger. I appreciate the Scripture references given to further validate it’s content. Being one who needs to read when I find the time, I enjoyed short chapters allowing me to put it down to take care of life’s interruptions. This book has helped me to understand myself and others better and is helping me to improve myself and therefore, the world around me. ~Judy Folk, NC
Alexys Wolf's book, How to Get it Right: Being Single, Married, Divorced and Everything in Between is thought-provoking, stimulating, packed with insight, and a pleasure to read. Prepare to be challenged. You need not concur with her every conclusion or interpretation to profit from the author's wisdom. Her views are grounded in a profound knowledge of Scripture and reverence for God's Word. The enemy of truth is often not change but tradition. Appropriately, Wolf approaches marriage and divorce with what might be called a Biblically Christian perspective as opposed to a traditionally religious view. Sadly, many today who call themselves Christians base their beliefs and model their behavior on the standards of the world, not on Scripture. Alexys Wolf is forthright in confronting these failings, mincing no words in upholding biblical standards of purity. Refreshingly honest and open in sharing her own heartbreaking experiences, with candor and humility she tells a compelling, human story of God's grace and redemption. ~ Author Walter Brian Cisco
How to Get it Right is one of the best books I have ever read on all the deep questions involved in this topic. It does more than just provide opinions; it gives scripture to look at concerning these various issues. This isn’t a fluffy book filled with data; instead, it is a hard-hitting, thought-provoking book that gives honest answers and things to consider for your own life. The section on covenant is awesome! There is a way to be healthy within a marriage and God must be first and foremost for that to occur. Author Alexys V. Wolf shares personal experiences that help the reader relate to and come alongside her in her quest for knowledge. This is definitely one of the finest books I have read on this subject and one that I would recommend to others who want to build their marriage. This would be a great book for a church library. I look forward to additional resources to be printed from this author to draw strength and encouragement. There are encouraging prayers at the end of the chapters. HTGIR is absolutely wonderful, beautifully written without pulling punches, yet full of love and tenderness. Would love to meet her and listen to her in person. This is very insightful and full of wisdom. It’s 5 stars all the way! ~Pastor Darin Godby, Reader’s Favorite Book Awards Judge
As I’ve read Holiness or Heresy several times over, I see more, and more, and more of the error (including my own) of the modern-day church. I have pondered within myself, “What is it going to take for the body of Christ to receive this great truth?” My prayer is that the vision and revelation God has given Alexys would be received as from the heart of the King; that the body would become one in mind, spirit, and body as we are with Christ. I pray that, through this book and from others from whom God is speaking a word of correction, people will be awakened in the deepest part of their spirit and connect with the Spirit of the living God. Holiness or Heresy is an eye-opener if ever I’ve read one! I’ve been in church all my life and have never ever heard such powerful, astounding revelation of the subject of the modern-day church. In reading this God-inspired writing, I recognize the vast difference between the original Church and how God’s people have diminished and even destroyed it throughout the centuries. We have digressed into a black hole of religiosity, the very thing for which Christ came to abolish. We must adjust according to God’s instruction and I realize it starts with one. Although I’ve read Holiness or Heresy several times over, I will joyfully read it again! I am beyond thrilled to have such a book for myself and I also pray that the whole of the body of Christ will read it as well. It’s a book for the ages! ~ Editor Pamela Scholtes, South Carolina
Alexys totally amazes me with such wisdom, insight, and revelation that she shares with the Body of Christ. It is easy to see how the Church has become unfocused upon that which is biblical and true, rather following after what is easy and accepted. This book, Holiness or Heresy, which I have read several times because of the depth and understanding that is unveiled, is not a book for just a casual reader. This book causes one to dig deep within their soul and search their deep inner chambers to discover their real relationship with God and if His divine holiness is living within. Scriptural references are given as the basis for each topic and eye-opening revelation that will cause one to think, be challenged, and allow one to move closer to our Holy God. For the believer who desires to get past the fluff and fake, this is the book for you. ~ Pastor Darin Godby, Kentucky
As you read this book, the weight of religion will fall off your shoulders; it will bring clarity to your heart as it permeates your intellect and your will as you keep in mind your desire to be active in your walk with God in Christ. As you draw with ease drinking of His living water. Alexys takes you into the court of His grace and the power of His faith and ministers the heart of Father calling those who purport to be His disciples to truly follow Him. Thy Kingdom Come is an enabling, powerful read, and you shall be blessed by every word of God put into print." Thy Kingdom Come, clarifies the difference in religion and the Kingdom; law vs. freedom; work vs. grace; powerlessness vs. power. ~ Dr. Amos J. Young, Sr., CA
Looking for God is well written and cohesive, no easy task. It has a purpose and flows straight to that purpose: how we can live more fully in the freedom Jesus has for us. Her writing is biblical and practical. I especially liked the prayers at the end of each chapter as well as the glimpses she gives throughout regarding your personal story. I must confess that I'm partial to "The Wilderness" chapter because that has been a theme I've wrestled with for years. ~Dr. Mike Turner, Senior Pastor, Lexington Baptist Church, SC
As a practicing Catholic for over seventy years, I was interested, enlightened, and challenged by Looking for God. It certainly might anger some, especially those who profess to be leaders of their church, because it clearly points out how ineffectual many of their approaches are in properly guiding their followers to find God. It provides the process and practical applications that not only church leaders should learn, but more importantly, every Christian should learn so others find God in them. It deserves to be read. ~MG (retired) Richard Scholtes (retired), FL
If you are looking for the TRUTH about God and what He thinks about ALL of us, then this book series, Looking for God, is for you! I HIGHLY recommend them to atheists and agnostics, as well as devout Christians. Looking For God books are enlightening and set the record straight on who God is and who we are as His creation! They are one of the most powerful, truthful, teachings of God’s Word that I have ever read! You’ve got questions? This series has the answers! Warning: This book series contains material that will reveal the truth and nothing but the truth. No fluff or smoke. Just truth. ~Helen Melcher, SC
I can honestly say that God used the book series, Looking for God, in my own life, before leaving Iraq, to prepare me for things to come. Thank you, Alexys, for allowing the Holy Spirit of God to lead you in your writing, and I’m sure He’ll continue to move through you in the years to come, my friend!! ~Eddie Crain, TX
Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit (previously Holy Spirit Who?) by Alexys V. Wolf is a spiritual journey to discover who the Holy Spirit is and the role the Spirit plays in our lives. Much like the author, I grew up in a mainstream traditional denomination where the spirit was stifled. We rarely ever discussed the Spirit. I grew up very uncomfortable with such talk. I praise God that it is no longer true. Scripture tells us that the Holy Spirit was sent to dwell within us and to be our comforter. He lives within us. This is where the Trinity comes in: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Much of what Mrs. Wolf leads the reader toward is total submission to the will of the Lord. Let's face it: most of us are not sure we want to submit. In fact we know we don't want to submit; it seems to be against our human nature. We want to be independent and self-sufficient. What we have forgotten is that God created everything and without Him we would not be here. Wolf defines who the Spirit is and the role it plays in our lives. I particularly enjoyed the section on the Fruit of the Spirit. I was also very interested in Chapter 11: Angels and Demons: Do You Really Believe? “The common Christian has become desensitized about the spirit realm and its validity in today's society.” Wolf points out that Satan has accomplished his task by desensitizing Christians. ~Anne B. of Readers Favorite International Book Contest
It is my strong opinion that Alexys’ book series, Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit, is the best of all her books. I found it not only wonderful but excellent and fantastic. Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit has Bible Scriptures as well as names of other authors you might be interested in reading. There are also prayers throughout the chapters that you can say and I said them all. This wonderfully fantastic book series will bring you closer to God. They tell you so many extraordinary things and also not so wonderful things; but the not so wonderful things are a teaching tool. When you read these books, not only will they help you get closer to God and find out how to get His Spirit, but Alexys also talks openly about some of her personal experiences. After reading those, I loved her all the more. I believe all Christians and non-Christians alike should read this book series. If you are a non-believer, read them and I guarantee you will turn your life over to God and ask Jesus into your life. I have been a born again Christian for over 10 years. Although I read my Bible every day, reading these books helps to clarify things from the Bible that I did not understand before. I have learned a lot from Alexys and all of her books but, by far, this one is the best as I find these extremely special. Please, everyone out there be you, man or woman, you really have to get this book series. You will be so happy and thrilled that you did. ~Cheryl Ann Kelly, Arnprior, Ontario
Minister Wolf's book 4 volume series, Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit, is well-organized and well-researched. She uses much scripture to back up her thesis. She ends each chapter with a prayer. This book's format is a reference guide. I can see many uses for this book. First, the average Christian would greatly benefit from the knowledge between the front and back cover. Secondly, pastors and teachers would find this book a great resource for their lessons. Mrs. Wolf obviously spent much time in research and definitely knows her subject. This is one book Christians do not want to miss. ~Pastor Darin Godby, Kentucky
Alexys is about to take you on a journey. Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit book series not like any book I have ever read about Holy Spirit. I am not even sure if I would call them books; they are a reference, a study guide, and a testimony of the very heart and character of God. Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit takes you deeper into the word of God than most would endeavor. Alexys has a way of breaking it down and feeding you line upon line, precept upon precept. Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit books are foundational, yet a tender haul over the coals for the intellectual who thinks he may have “read it all.” Subtly, she will eliminate every excuse you have to not walk fully in His will for your life and eradicate the very justification you thought you had for not knowing and walking in His word. I believe she actually writes, “Partial surrender is really equal to rebellion.” Accepting who we are and then understanding who we are with Holy Spirit is a revelation that can only come from “knowing” His word and Him personally. Alexys ensures that accurate interpretation is expressed and her findings are explored thoroughly. She dissects Scripture within the Word of God, digging deeper into the original intent and language. She leads us with assurance leaving no room for uncertainty. There comes a point in each of our lives…a kairos moment; a point in time that extraordinarily changes you, one that can’t be defined by human efforts, and one that couldn’t be expected. I believe at one point while reading this expose’ on Scripture, you will have your defining moment. You will begin a sentence and by the time you are finished, you will be altered. It’s not by anything that Alexys can say but rather how she aims you to His Truth. Like an arrow, you are about to be thrust headfirst into a deeper knowledge of a source so powerful and a supply so sweet that, not only will you be changed, but those around you will have an encounter because of your experience.
It’s not unreasonable to believe we can keep ourselves unstained from the world, that we can walk in love and be a sweet aroma unto the Lord, if we have an understanding of Holy Spirit – if we “know” Him. Let us not be deceived into thinking that He can be separated from Truth, love, or God’s Word. There is no righteousness apart from Him; you cannot tame your tongue without Holy Spirit, and you cannot please God without Him. Above all else, you cannot decide what parts of Him you want, accept, or believe. You may want to think twice before continuing to read any further. Whether you are ready or not, you are about to be changed. His word is powerful and Alexys has filled these pages with His word, His interpretation and His Truth – Truth convicts and transforms. There is no need to find a place on your bookshelf for this book series. The moment I finished, I wanted to go back to page one and begin again. If you are like I, you will want to be sure your hi-lighters are full of ink and pen is in hand. Don’t get too comfortable. Discovering the Person of Holy Spirit will bring you to your knees; it will bring you to a place of repentance, a place of desperation, and true freedom. Oh, and I should probably warn you that the passion that Alexys carries is largely contagious. I thank you, Jesus, for Alexys and her pursuit of You. I thank You for her desire to build Your house first. Bless her, Lord, for her desires to see Your people walk in Your Truth and the freedom that accompanies it. Bless her, Father, for her pursuit of righteousness and for her walk of obedience at any cost. I thank You that your will be done and that Your Word will not return void. Thank you for all that You are and for all that You have done for us already. Amen. ~ Carrie L. King, Kingston, Ontario
Alexys Wolf ’s first book, What Was God Thinking: Why Adam Had to Die, opened my eyes to knowing who God is and what my place is in this life. I now talk about God like he is a real person because he is real in me. Being a Christian is not easy, but a lot of her topics help new Christians like me in our daily walk with God. Looking for God is not only for Christian people, but for people in general who may not have found him yet. I say this because when she gave me this book, it was a time when I had family members in a crisis. Her books have taught me patience and endurance, and what it is to have hope in God. I am learning to believe in myself as a child of God—to let go and let God handle all. She has taught me the real meaning of praise and worship and what it is to really have an intimate relationship with God. She gives Scripture to back everything she says. ~ Jimmie Lynn McNeil, SC
I felt really blessed and enlightened when I read Alexys V. Wolf ’s book, What was God Thinking, Why Adam have to Die. I would recommend it to any new or old Christian. It is a God-breathed book in which Alexys was an instrument of the Holy Spirit! Bless you Alexys! ~ Debra Finney, KY
I’ve been reading a book a good friend of mine, Alexys V. Wolf, wrote, What Was God Thinking? Why Adam Had to Die. This is a great book! Without you knowing it, the book gets you walking a little closer with God. I’m sure that is exactly what the author had in mind. Great job Alexys!! ~ Becky Henderson Sutton, SC
