A New Book Release!

Cover image of The Salvation of the LORD featuring a photo of deep space with the book's title and author name superimposed

At long last, the revised and expanded second edition of my book, The Salvation of the LORD, has been released! It goes on sale on Tuesday, April 23, 2024! It is already available for purchase from Amazon, Goodreads, and Abebooks, but it is just a matter of time before all the others catch up and begin carrying it, too. In order to find it on your favorite online bookseller’s site, just search on the book’s ISBN: 978-0-9888528-8-4 (try it with and without the hyphens).

I’m still working on the eBook conversion, but it should be available soon. I haven’t assigned an ISBN to the eBook editions, so you will need to search on the author and title to find it, and be sure to include “second edition” in the search to distinguish it from the first edition. Of course, once it’s available, I’ll provide the direct links to the sales pages here in my blog store and in the Parson Place Press Bookstore, as well as on my personal author website.

So, what makes the second edition distinct from the first? Besides correcting a couple of mistakes and revising some less-clear wording here and there, I also wrote an entirely new chapter on the doctrine of apostasy to explain what it is, how it can happen, and how to avoid it or counter it once it appears. The book was truly incomplete without this important chapter.

Please share this blog post with your family and friends or send them the links to both the print and eBook versions to purchase on their own. Also, once you’ve read my book, please, please, PLEASE write a review for it on at least two online bookstore sites, especially on Amazon. This will help immensely with getting the word out and with boosting sales. As an incentive for writing your review, send me the link to it once you’ve posted it and I’ll send you a special promo code to download the eBook edition of The Salvation of the LORD for free once it is available. If you’re interested, you may also browse and follow me on my Amazon Author page, too.

That’s all for now. I look forward reading your reviews and other comments soon!


Are You Sure You’re Going to Heaven?

Random street interviews I’ve watched seem to indicate that the majority of people believe they’re going to Heaven because they’re a “good person”. But is that the qualifier for going to Heaven? If not, what is the qualifier for entering Heaven? How can one know he or she is going to Heaven?

Cover of The Salvation of the LORD by Michael L. WhiteIn my latest book, The Salvation of the LORD, I go into great detail discussing this topic, including a discussion of the character of God, the origin and problem of sin, Heaven and Hell, the doctrines of predestination and the unpardonable sin, God’s judgment, everlasting life, and more. If you want to know how to obtain the salvation of the LORD and how to know you’re going to be in Heaven with Him forever, I strongly encourage you to read this book and share it with anyone else you think will benefit from reading it.

It’s available in print wherever books are sold. Just search on the ISBN: 9780988852877. It’s also available in eBook for both Kindle and Nook. Be sure to investigate the Kindle Matchbook Program for even more savings.

I want to help as many people as I can to learn this very important truth, because both God and I want to see you in Heaven. It truly will be the most joyous celebration of all time!

After you’ve read my book, will you be so kind as to share your thoughts about it here on this page? I also encourage you to write a short review on all of the popular book retail and sharing sites, including,, and

Parson Place Press Releases Signs of the Time by Connie Bertelsen Young

Parson Place Press is pleased to announce the release of its latest title, Signs of the Time, by Connie Bertelsen Young. This 216 page book is packed with both humor and spiritual insight simply using average signs we see everywhere.

Reading signs is simple enough, but interpreting them is a different matter. Not so surprisingly, there can be more than one meaning to every sign. With perceptively keen insight, Connie Bertelsen Young opens up a whole new way of looking at common, everyday signs by applying Biblical truth to them. Signs like “Help Wanted,” “Soft Shoulder,” “Fragile,” and “Caution” take on an entirely different meaning when viewed from a Biblical perspective.  Each chapter ends with Seven SIGNificant Questions for reflection to encourage both individuals and groups to activate Scriptural teaching in their lives. After reading Connie’s inspiring insights, you will never read a sign the same way again.

Get your copy now! Purchase wherever books are sold using ISBN 978-0-9888528-2-2. Coming soon in eBook for Kindle and Nook! To invite Connie to speak at virtually any gathering, contact her via email at
