NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–Eight new Broadman & Holman books are being released in August including a new book by Beth Moore about the life of the apostle Paul.
— Moore’s “To Live is Christ” takes readers through an in-depth study of the life of Paul from his childhood to his martyrdom.
— “Winter Flowers: And Other Signs of Redemption” by Jo Kadlecek is a collection of stories written that paints a picture of God’s constant and sometimes surprising works of restoration. These stories, many personal in nature, will inspire a new sensitivity to God’s work in a postmodern world.
— “Sifted But Saved: Classic Devotions” by W.W. Melton is an old book brought back to life by editor Robin Hardy. Rummaging through some antique books, Robin came across a book with fragile brown pages and quaint typesetting. Reading the pages for a closer look revealed words that “leaped out with such aliveness that I kept checking the publication date to make sure it really said 1925.” This collection is now reintroduced for a new generation of Christians.
— “Bonding with Your Teen Through Boundaries” by June Hunt addresses real-life parent/teen situations, giving parents biblical guidance for common teen issues designed to strengthen the bond between parent and teen. Each possible situation is illustrated with a scenario and suggested parental responses.
— “More Than Just a Name: Preserving Our Baptist Identity” by Stan Norman analyzes writings on Baptist distinctives. It argues that these writings constitute a specific theological genre: a confessional theology. The author shows that there is a continuous body of theological components common to all Baptists.
— “Famous Jerks of the Bible” is a new book by Margaret Brouillette written to enlighten youth (and adults) about the lives of some Bible characters who chose to live their lives apart from God’s will — or as the author prefers to call it … those who chose to act like jerks. Brouillette takes a detailed look at these characters (such as Judas, Pharaoh and Delilah) to teach how to avoid their mistakes and to live a life that pleases God.
— “The Infidel” by Joe Musser is a new historic novel based on the life of John Newton, the writer of the classic hymn “Amazing Grace.” Described as a faithless wretch of a man in a vile and violent profession, John Newton stood as the infidel — a life that opposed the gospel. But this slave ship captain would have an encounter with a grace so powerful that it would not only transform his life, but it would ultimately bless the world with his writing one of the most enduring Christian hymns.
— “The Dove AwardTM Signature Series” by Stephen Elkins kicks off with its first two releases titled “The Great Adventure,” based on the Dove Award-winning song of the same name by Stephen Curtis Chapman, and “Thank You,” a book centered around the Dove Award-winning song by Ray Boltz. Each of these books is a story intertwined with the lyrics from the featured song. Packaged with a CD, The Wonder Kids Choir performs the featured Dove Award-winning songs and a narrator reads the story from the book.
