About the book
Christian author Andrea Michele Mills hopes to bring “repentance, righteousness, holiness, and most of all, the fear of the Lord back into the churches.” Her book, There’s Too Much Hell in Church, confronts the difficult issues afflicting today’s churches from prideful, prestige-seeking pastors and congregations to homosexuality in the pulpit. Mills encourages churches to “seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness” by repenting of lifestyles and choices that compromise the spiritual health of the church body. Holy Fire Publishing
“It’s my supreme desire for this book to optimistically agitate change in the churches and hearts of Christians all across the nations. These writings and scriptures will inspire [readers] and allow the Holy Spirit to bring true repentance, righteousness, holiness, and most of all, the fear of the Lord back into the churches. My ultimate heart’s desire is to do the will of the Lord, and to see all churches in commission under the unction of the Holy Spirit, worshiping the one and only, true and living God, which is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ…. [M]y heart is deeply committed to the body of Christ: The Church!”—Andrea Michele Mills
“It’s time to stand up for righteousness’ sake. No more merchandising the anointing: Give $1000 and your blessing is on the way; give your bill-money, and you will receive a blessing in seven days; or stand in the $1000-line because the Lord has a Word for you—in seven days you will be married. This is ludicrous and not biblical.”—excerpt, There’s Too Much Hell in the Church!

Dana Taylor is 29, a beautiful, well- educated, rising star in corporate Atlanta. Dana lives life on her own terms, no matter the cost. She can have any man she wants, and often finds herself in the throes of one unhealthy relationship after another.

And soon those sparks are igniting a fire they can't put out…
