Revisiting and disputing a key allegation of a commonly told story of WWII Japanese military bases during World War II concerns one of this week’s Newsmax Rising Bestsellers. Three others involve religious themes. The first tells the story of what may be the most remarkable military chaplain in American history — certainly during the 20th century. The second discusses a trend that has become something of a religion among leftist educators — using schools to transition America’s youth. Another makes the case that a paper discovered 150 years ago may in fact be a direct message from Christ. The fiction selection is the latest work from what may be America’s most read and prolific novelists.

Crosshairs,” by James Patterson & James O. Born (Little, Brown and Company)

This is the 16th installment of No. 1 New York Times bestselling author James Patterson’s series centered on New York City detective Michael Bennett. In this one, he teams up with Officer Rob Trilling, a former Army Ranger and sniper with the NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit. But after a series of unexplained absences, questions arise as to whether Trilling is actually an assassin. “I enjoy the balance that this series has between Michael's home life and his work life. Father to 10 adopted children, his still rather new marriage to their former nanny Mary Catherine brings him immense joy,” said RobinLovesReading in her GoodReads review. “What a thrilling read! I can't believe that we have made it to 16 books in this amazing series. Not only is Mike an exceptional detective, leaving no stone unturned, his compassion as well as his love for his large family is always evident.” [Fiction]

The Comfort Women Hoax: A Fake Memoir, North Korean Spies, and Hit Squads in the Academic Swamp,” by J. Mark Ramseyer & Jason M. Morgan (Encounter Books)

The story of “comfort women” has been a notorious claim of World War II and alleges the Japanese military forced young females from occupied territories into prostitution for the gratification of its soldiers. However, Harvard Law School’s Mark Ramseyer and Jason Morgan of Ritaku University in Japan argue, based on documentary evidence, legal structures, and economic logic, that most of the women were, in fact, contracted prostitutes, not “sex slaves.” The authors soon became targets of academic “cancel culture” because of their research and findings. “This groundbreaking work adds an entirely new dimension to the controversial comfort women issue, the military brothel system by the Imperial Japanese military,” wrote DeepThinkingReader for Amazon. “In addition to going over the history of the comfort women controversy since the early 1990s as well as sharing their academic persecution by taking an unpopular stance on the issue, professors Ramseyer and Morgan meticulously expose the deep multinational network involving Communist North Korea (which no doubt is tied to CCP China) working with allies in South Korea to disrupt the U.S.-Japan-S. Korean alliance that is vital to peace and stability in the Far East.” [Nonfiction]

No Bullet Got Me Yet: The Relentless Faith of Father Kapaun,” by John Stansifer (Hanover Square Press)

This is an amazing story about an amazing man, Rev. Emil Kapaun, a humble Catholic priest who served as an Army chaplain during World War II and the Korean War. He went far beyond the call of duty in his service to the soldiers that he always referred to as “my boys.” By fearlessly ministering to the wounded at the front lines, Kaplan became the most decorated chaplain in U.S. military history, and was awarded the Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, and the Legion of Merit. “I couldn’t put this book down and read it from cover to cover. I never expected to learn of a true man of God that I had never heard of until recently that endured such brutal suffering and witnessed so much violence and came out of it with an equally powerful message of faith, love and genuine forgiveness of his enemy,” wrote Kimberly Bosze in her GoodReads review. “This book reinvigorates the faith and knowledge that Sainthood is inevitable for this beautiful man — Emil Kapaun. This book was a privilege and honor to read and will be by side forever.” [Nonfiction]

The Queering of the American Child: How a New School Religious Cult Poisons the Minds and Bodies of Normal Kids,” by Logan Lancing & James Lindsay (New Discourses)

Teen and even pre-teen children are being groomed, the authors claim, assigned new genders, new names, along with new locker and restroom facilities, without the permission or even knowledge of their parents — the ones who know them best. In this new book, Logan Lancing and James Lindsay explain what “queer theory” is, where it came from, how it got into schools, and what it's doing to children nationwide, all of which are necessary to understand in order to end this destructive new trend. “Why do we keep hearing so many of these stories? And why are they all happening in school?” asks Jane Coleman in her review of the book for Legal Insurrection. “In their new and enlightening book, ‘The Queering of the American Child,’ authors Logan Lancing and James Lindsay explain how yesterday’s subversive ‘Critical Theory’ movements have turned today’s public schools into hotbeds of gender indoctrination.” [Nonfiction]

The Secret Gospel of Jesus: Unveiling the Mystery of the Sator Square and Decoding the Hidden Rules,” by Bert P. Regan (Speraro)

In this book, the author makes the case that a 2,000-year-old document, discovered 150 years ago in the ruins of Pompeii, is a direct and authentic message from Jesus. Referred to as the Sator Square, it contains five enigmatic Latin words, and gives a message the world needs at a time when it’s marked by division, confusion, and fear.

“Regan takes readers on a journey through nearly 150 years of scholarly puzzlement, unveiling the true meaning of the Latin words inscribed on this mysterious 2,000-year-old artifact found in the ruins of Pompeii,” said Robin in her Amazon review. “I found it to be a transformative experience, challenging my personal beliefs to reconsider my perspectives on Christianity and its foundations.” [Nonfiction]
