FAQs

Are all your stories super-religious?

All the stories are written by a Christian author, whose ideas about beauty, truth, love and so on have been shaped by the history of Christian thought. However, anyone from any background might enjoy these stories if they enjoy lighthearted reads about human experience. For example, Is He Prince Charming? retells the story of Cinderella from a new perspective.

Why don't you just sell on Amazon?

My stories are widely available on online bookstores, including Amazon! However, some customers prefer not to support Amazon. The size of Amazon is also challenging for many independent bookstores and publishers. By purchasing directly from us, you know your purchase is benefiting an independent author and publisher.

 

What is the Amrah Publishing House?

The Amrah Publishing House is the publishing venture which publishes Harma-Mae Smit's books. It is a small Christian publishing venture that specializes in light-hearted literature.

Why do you call yourself "Reformed Christian"?

First of all, because I am a follower of Christ, and second of all because the content of my faith has been shaped by the Great Reformation--"Reformed" is the most well-known label for the particular Christian tradition I belong to. However, readers do not have to share the same background to be drawn into the stories found here.

Does every story have a Christian message?

Not every story lays out the five points of Calvinism, or walks the reader through a gospel presentation, but every story is written by a Christian with a Christian worldview. This worldview intimately shapes the stories, whether or not the nuances of God's existence are explicitly discussed. .

Do you have a Statement of Faith?

Amrah Publishing House's Statement of Faith can be summed up by three summaries of faith created after the Great Reformation (also known as the Three Forms of Unity): the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dort.
