Description : One Man One Woman takes an in-depth look at the marriage relationship of one man and one woman and how it reflects the beauty of Christs relationship with his church. One Man One Woman is a book about what was in Gods mind as he made the first man and the first woman and subsequently, how we can discover the closest relationship possible with both God and spouse. In this book, we explore how pornography, adultery, homosexuality, and judging one another breaks the oneness relationship and distracts us from focusing on what we should be focusing onthat is, spreading the Gospel and calling others to repentance and a turning away from sin. One Man One Woman is also about learning how to handle some of the many relationship challenges we face as imperfect beings living in an ever-corrupting world. While Christianity seemingly slumbers on, sexual identity is becoming a matter of subjective preference and choice rather than birthright and blessing. Traditional marriage is ever weakening under fire and conventional sex is taking a back seat to alternative sexual exploration. Consequently, divorce rates are accelerating, and Christian marriage values are succumbing into a minority view. But God had a plan in the beginning, and marriage was and still is an integral part of that plan. In the Gospel of John, Jesus uses an Eastern wedding custom when announcing he was leaving to prepare a place for you, thus signaling the beginning of the end, the impending wedding ceremony, and the imminent start of eternity with him. People, get readyJesus is returning soon!

Description : "One Man In His Time: A Memoir" is an account of a full life which includes Prentiss's participation in both national and local politics at a high level and his friendship with major figures including Sen. George McGovern and many others. He had two meetings with Gov. Jimmy Carter during his presidential campaigns, and he was a guest in the Reagan White House to receive a major medal. Other portions of his memoir describe, mostly in anecdotal accounts, his extensive work with troubled teenagers sent to his program by the Orange County Florida Juvenile Court. He was also a teacher and administrator at both the secondary (Florida Military School) and college (Valencia College in Orlando) levels of education. He reached many high goals in his life despite having a troubled early adolescence which he describes in detail. His Air Force experience as an Intelligence Officer was also one of high adventure. Prentiss has described himself psychologically as a "seeker of high sensation." This is borne out in his memoir including his choice to be a Volunteer Fireman and his Air Force "close calls." Much of his life is told in the details of his life and times. A reader will have a better feel for the years between 1932 and the present after reading this Memoir.
