Book Review – Two Books – Rags to Rabbi and Destroyed from Within

Hello Everyone,

I had the opportunity to read two books recently, titled “Rags to Rabbi,” and  “Destroyed from Within.”  Reading through these books the author uses her own life story to describe the power of God to bring healing, in Yeshua the Messiah, even under the worst of circumstances.  The author has a unique ability to draw the reader into the storyline and it was difficult to put the books down until finished reading. Carmen Welker, in brutal reality, speaks of her struggles in life, and how gracious and merciful our Father in Heaven is to each one of us.  I highly recommend the following books…

“Rags to Rabbi” – the author’s own story – pulls no punches as it reveals, in graphic detail, the horrors of sexual abuse. It should be read by anyone who has ever been mentally or sexually abused because, in the end, the book shows that there IS healing – and that this healing comes NOT from secular psychiatrists, but ONLY from God, who is able to heal from the inside out. The story, which unfolds chronologically from early childhood on, is one of rejection, mental and sexual abuse and indescribable horrors at the hands of Carmen’s natural mother and adoptive father, who happened to be a raving pedophile. It follows her struggles with life and relationships as she fought the demons of her past – which remained well into middle age, when she finally found peace in God. This book should be required reading for any pedophile/sexual predator so they can finally see an “in your face” description of the terror they impose on their innocent victims, whose lives are usually ruined!

“Satan just walked through the door!”Those were Rebecca Ritter’s initial thoughts when handsome rancher, R. B. “Rex” Lambert, walked through the front door of the synagogue!And she was right. Not only did Rex end up wreaking havoc in the congregation, but he also devastated the leadership, caused some to lose their faith in God, and even managed to destroy the Rabbi’s marriage. Making matter worse, his very presence caused “flashbacks” for the forty-something Becca – flashbacks to a childhood fraught with unspeakable horrors at the hands of her demented father, Klaus-Dieter Behringer – a former guard at the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp, who had a few sinister “skeletons in his closet”….Set in the beautiful countryside near Seymour, Missouri, “Destroyed from Within” is an intense, fast-moving psycho-thriller revealing how the “sins of the father” are passed along from generation to generation…while depicting the many ways in which weak faith and poor leadership can lead people completely away from God.

Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
