Route 66-Have you found your Route in life.
Dr. Gary Chapman (author 5 Love Languages) “I don’t know of another book that connects people with the Bible by use of beautiful digital paintings and real-world application.  I predict that Route 66 will be a legacy book passed from generation to generation.” 
Dean Brior (author) “Beautiful imagery that brings the Bible to life! Thanks, Herb, for putting your gifts to work for the Lord!”
Vicki Snodgrass "I read Route 66 daily and each entry has a special meaning to what's going on in this world. The devotions give me hope!" A great book for believers!”
 Avalene Pegrem “After reading Mr. Burns' book, "Route 66," we were extremely impressed and purchased several books as Christmas gifts for our family and friends.  To our knowledge, there is no other book on the market quiet like this one.  The way each book of the Bible is condensed into easy reading, and along with life applications, would be beneficial to everyone.  Also, the digital paintings in each book would be especially of interest to young children as well.  Needless to say, it would be a great addition to any Christian Library.”
Вадим Гуменюк  “Будем ждать издания на русском или украинском! :)”
Ken Patrick (author) “Herb you and I started writing about the positive things long before this disease showed up...thank you for helping spread God's words”

                Route 66: Have you found your route in life? by Herbert I. Burns Jr. is a handy guide for all those readers who want to have a better understanding of each of the 66 books of the Bible, and their implications for life. The author uses a unique approach to capture one of the key messages in each book. Each book of the Bible deals with more than one topic and the author shares the messages which spoke to him. As the old saying goes, 'A picture is worth a thousand words,' and is also proof of the creativity of God. These paintings are a good way for parents to help their children understand the messages easily and this book is a good manual for readers to find their lost route and get back on track.
There is a lot for readers to learn from the Bible, yet there are not many readers who have read the contents of the Bible properly. Route 66 gives them a better perception and the manner in which the topic has been tackled makes it an interesting and engaging book to read. This book by Herbert I. Burns Jr. can be used in Bible classes to expose students to the basic teachings of the Bible without making it too preachy and boring. Route 66 teaches a lot of things; how to pray, be grateful and thankful, help others, and be careful with actions and words. This is a good tool to lead readers to Christ and make them feel and experience life in a way that has never happened before."

Never stop asking discovering and sharing.

         “Never Stop! Asking—Discovering—Sharing means it! Never Stop is transitional and transformational. Burns invites readers to make a transition from where they have been to be being actively transformational with their lives. Anecdotes from real lives woven as a tapestry of guideposts in an encouraging journey of transition, discovery and positive personal affirmation draw the reader into a new outlook. Four Thumbs Up.” 
John Moormann, Emmy winning TV Producer and Educator
            “Never Stop! Asking, Discovering, and Sharing is an excellent piece of work. Mr. Burns, through personal experience and a series of wrong turns, never gave up on his vision and passion to accomplish his long-term goal of becoming an architect. Amazing how a T square can change one’s life. Throughout the book, Mr. Burns encourages students and adults to never give up on their dreams.” Clif Arnold, Associate pastor Becks Baptist Church (retired)
            “Never Stop is a detailed presentation of a three-tiered formula for a meaningful, rewarding life illustrated first by the authors autobiography, then the testimonies of that formula at work in numerous other peoples’ lives, and based on a foundation of the Holy Scriptures of the Christian faith Mr. Burns has found relevant for his own life. This is a book not to be read quickly but digested one chapter at a time with time for reflection and consideration as to how what you have read resonates in your own life and living.” Rev. Bob Hicks, retired Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
            “Many people go through life not really understanding what we really want or what we need to be successful. In his new book-NEVER STOP, Asking, Discovering, Sharing-Herb Burns teaches us how we too can be successful. Written almost as an autobiography, Mr. Burns talks about his early life, how he matured through the years, and how he became an experienced architect and teacher that he is today through the guidance of his faith in God and of the Holy Spirit. This is the key to successful living! Great piece of work Herb!” John D Valley--Author--RETURN TO LIMESTONE

Never Stop Teaching and Leading- Help Heal our Nation
     In his second book series on NEVER STOP, Herb Burns sends out a desperate call of unity to all Americans…….HELP HEAL OUR NATION! What teachers, educators and leaders can do and have done to KEEP AMERICA GREAT. But first and foremost, what CHRISTIANS need to do and must do for the sake of our great nation.  A great historical lesson for millennials and younger about the true history of America. How it was founded. The blood sweat and tears that shaped it over the past two and half centuries. These are facts you won’t find in today’s history books!  2020 has brought on the greatest cultural change in our nation’s history. It is time to STAND AMERICA! We are a REPUBLIC! This means WE THE PEOPLE! Stand for our rights, our freedoms and for our GOD! Great book Herb!                               
John D. Valley-Author-Return to Limestone   
 “…A peregrination with acute profundity!”          
     Using life-transforming vignettes Herb establishes a solid veritas from the first page of history to the last imperative. A must read for today’s call to use our time, talent, and treasure for good.           
 John Moormann-Emmy wining TV Producer and Educator          

      Never before in my lifetime has our nation needed such healing and leadership as we do right now.  If you are reading Herb’s book “Never Stop!”,  I hope you hear  his important message that we can no longer be silent.  America needs leaders and teachers who will speak up and lead by example.  Herb’s desire is to see America in the 21st century be the nation that God intended us to be.  This book is a must read for every American who is discouraged with the corruption in Congress and politics and in my opinion, the failure of our public schools, our churches, and the family.  The followers of Christ must be the example for others to follow.           Perry G. Hudspeth-CLU,CRPC; LPL Financial Advisor

Never Stop: Teaching and Leading Help Heal Our Nation by Herbert I. Burns Jr. is an insightful book that makes readers aware of the unhealthy times America as a nation is going through. It is in dire need of healing using the help of leading and teaching. The author's tools are all about involving families, children, work, and faith, and how all this plays a key role in laying the foundations of the republic. The author uses his experience as an educator and looks at the educational structure in America today, and how it is eroding gradually, more and more. The four things the author asks readers to notice and think about are the American flag, an image of the nation's capital, a silhouette image representing leadership, and to look for a cross in the clouds.

Never Stop speaks of the heritage of the nation and how important it is to teach students about it. Herbert I. Burns Jr. gives readers good tips and techniques on what to do to build a strong foundation for their children; to have courage, strength, knowledge, and faith to be productive Americans who will be able to preserve what the founding of the nation was about. The author also speaks about the role of the different types of families in raising children, and how they should be taught discipline and routine at a very young age. The subject has been dealt with extensively so that the full remedy and diagnosis is there for readers to understand.

Book Reviews
     What would happen if every Christian reached his or her potential for God and good in the world? I can only imagine! Whatever your age, God wants to use your life to accomplish His purposes. Life is lived one step at a time. Each step leads us closer to God and his plans for our lives, or further from God. Herb Burn’s book: NEVER STOP Pursuing God’s Mission and Vision for You, will help you move in the right direction. I highly recommend it to all who seek to invest their lives for Christ and His Kingdom
Gary D. Chapman, author of - The 5 Love Languages
              The author sets the stage for the reader to establish habits to identify your gift(s) and develop them to the fullest. Utilizing examples of real-life experiences, he provides proof how God changes willing hearts and uses them to provide direction for others to live life with Christ. Information in this book re-enforces the need for self-examination and acceptance of truth of where you are vs. where God would have you be. It challenges you to deliberately take time in a quiet place and listen closely to that “still small voice”, then act on the impressions God leaves in your mind and heart.  The contents of this book will definitely affect you no matter where you are in your relationship with God. The book is outstanding and sure to positively affect whoever reads it.
Kenneth Allen Patrick – Author & Poet
                As I read after Brother Burns, I have discovered that God has given him a special gift…. the gift of introspection, that is the ability to honestly access himself and the wisdom to pass on how to do this to others. You will find much good advice in “Never Stop Pursuing God’s Mission and Vision for You” especially in the section where he addresses scripture and application. You will either learn for the first time or revisit such topics as how to Engage, Enrich, Enlighten and Encourage yourself and others. I highly recommend this book for any Christian regardless of where they happen to be in their walk with God.
Jack Bales – Founder of the podcast “Three Men for Thee” & Bible fellowship teacher
                In his latest book, Herb Burns again exhorts us to “Never Stop”. I hope that Herb never stops giving us these practical, heartfelt challenges to the pursuit of understanding, and following with urgency, God’s plan for our lives.  As Herb says, “what are we waiting for?” His interspersed calls to action require readers to look in the mirror and self-reflect on what God is calling us to do, and even more importantly, who to be, in His plan and purpose. The testimonies of real-life journeys add layers of application to the core message of persistence and determination to follow God’s unique design for each of us.  Anyone who knows Herb personally, understands that his life is the embodiment of his writings. That is perhaps the greatest endorsement of all.

The Towers - In a world you could not imagine!
Book Reviews
“Thrilling, fast paced and provocative. Pulling from recent events, Herb Burns has given us a glimpse of what America’s near future may be. This is one of the rare books that I read in one sitting. The Towers is a book you won’t be able to put down. This is a must read!
~ Dr. Chris Hughes  Chairman of The Citizens for America Foundation.

Herb has blessed us again in this new book! Fasten your seatbelt and get ready for a thrilling ‘reading ride’! The Towers has a compelling narrative filled with many rich, relevant, redemptive life lessons that will inspire your faith and stimulate your intellect. I read Herbs book in one sitting-all I can say is ‘Wow!’.  Apocalyptic, entertaining, prophetic and inspiring are just a few of the words that come to mind.  You’ll want to share a copy with friends and loved ones! Can’t wait to share a copy of ‘The Towers’ with my teen and college age kids! I found it to be entertaining, but also a sobering ‘wake up call’ to the many modern subversive attacks on the faith.”
Stu Epperson Jr -President, Truth Network  & Author, First Words of Jesus

As a reader, I don't normally gravitate toward science-fiction, but Herb's newest book, The Tower, grabbed my attention from the first page. While Mark is left trying to navigate "a world we could not imagine," the author imagines this world for us and in doing so pulls readers into a mystery that will keep the pages turning. Bravo!
