Long enlightens those in the grasp of Satan's darkness and shows them the Light


This devotional is a true witness of His love and grace

Within the pages of Rod Long and Sue Buzzard’s new book, HOLYWUDD Word Up, ($28.99, paperback, 9781498444590; $9.99, e-book, 9781498444606) readers will discover a unique daily devotional written by the author while serving time in a federal prison. He was inspired by the Holy Spirit to reach others who need Jesus as their Savior. Rod Long’s uncle, Joe Dockery, suggested he write down his studies. He obliged and sent each to his mother, co-author Sue Buzzard, to decipher, search Scripture and rewrite as a devotional. After 3 years of prayer and study, his mother typed the transcript for publishing – to be now enjoyed and appreciated by all readers. The goal of this book is to spread the Gospel of Jesus’ love and enlighten those in the grasp of Satan’s darkness.

“There are millions of people who need to know that Jesus paid the ultimate price for us and that God had a plan for every human being before the foundation of the world,” states the author. “He wants us to have a personal relationship with Him because He has the plan for our success. This devotional is a true witness of His love and grace.”

While incarcerated, Rod Long completed studies for a Master’s Degree and received a Sacred Degree of Master of Ministry, with the distinction of Magna cum Laude. He was leading a Bible study and prayer group in prison when his uncle suggested that he write down the studies to be later translated into devotionals for this book. He is in good standing with the Commerce Community Church, West Des Moines, Iowa and received his certificate of Ordination. He completed his Doctorate Degree in 2015. His mother, co-author Sue Buzzard, has been a Spirit-filled Christian for over 65 years: she studies the Word, attends church faithfully ¬¬and seeks the leading of the Holy Spirit.
