General Admission: A History of Christian Metal by a Fan

MetalCover

The music industry has been ever changing. It has been both kind and cruel to nearly every musical genre and subgenre under the sun. Due to the tempestuous conditions of said industry, many stories go overlooked or entirely untold. The "popular" history of Christian Metal is a fascinating tale with most of it being told from the Sunset Strip heyday to the occasional "fallen Christian" scandal. However, the author of General Admission - A History of Christian Metal by a Fan, takes you through some of the most pivotal historical moments while remembering the impact of not just the L.A. bands, but what was happening on the U.S. East Coast and even continues across the Atlantic to include the impact of European bands in the scene as well. Written with passion, J. Rife's own experiences in the industry show the heart and the struggle of many of Christian Metal bands.

The Supernatural, The Paranormal, & The Bible

parnormal

It is difficult to dispute that unexplained events can and usually do occur every day. There are books, TV shows, ghost hunting groups & more in the mainstream culture. What has once been considered folklore has challenged skeptics more and more in these modern times. But tales of magic, ghosts, and divination existed before popular ghost stories were penned, before the popular witch trials of the past millennium, and even before many civilizations came to be. And the Bible is one of the best sources for not only demonstrating these things, but getting a better understanding of what much of it is about.

This book explores the Bible and other writings of the Christian tradition. It is a resource, yet hardly all inclusive, which I hope you can find thought-provoking and interesting.
