Inspirational Leader & Religious Scholar Helps Readers Reshape Lives through Powerful Transformation

Fort Washington, MD

Pastor Jonathan W. Allen Sr., of Maryland’s Allen Ministries, launched his new book in January and is now widely popular.  The “Release to Receive” book, in association with Xulon Press, is an essential tool of inspiration, and an in-depth meditation on the story of Hannah, whose demonstration of profound faith forms the gateway to powerful transformation for everyone.

There is not the slightest degree of discrimination towards readers; regardless of their creed, past or present life challenges, everyone can relate to something in this book.  In his own words, Pastor Allen relates his personal views and experience of writing the enlightening title as, “I believe this book is  the beginning of a divine, and yet equally provocative, soul searching deliverance unto the vast readership community out there.”

Inspired by a sermon he gave at his (home) church in Washington, D.C., Pastor Allen shares the story of Hannah, a woman looked down upon in her community for her inability to be blessed with a baby. How Hannah overcame her situation forms the scriptural wisdom which Pastor Allen used to show new facets of life.

“Hannah was dealing with a mix of emotions, such as frustration, bitterness, anger and resentment, but as soon as she went to the altar and released her grievances to the Lord, she was able to receive a miracle: her son Samuel,” says Allen. “So many people are not able to receive the miracles that God has in store for them because they are holding on to their past.  I am a firm believer that everyone needs to release something from their past that is affecting their future.”

Using a step-by-step analysis of Hannah’s Biblical journey, “Release to Receive” shines new light on the powerful lessons available in her story.  The second half of the book, titled ‘30 Days of Affirmation’, is an interactive workbook where readers can reflect upon specific scripture and journal their way to the breakthroughs that God wants for us all.

“Many times we read a portion of a book, set it down, and forget to make the necessary changes it suggests.  However, ‘30 Days of Affirmation’ will help the reader to release what has been haunting them and receive a new start,” says Allen.
