My New Book

Posted: June 17, 2008 in About my books

I am excited to tell you that my new book is now available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com, and soon to be available at most or all of the other online book dealers.  It is also being carried by Ingram.  Also, not only did Aventine Press accomplish publishing this book at a very affordable list price of $11.95, both amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com are offering the book at a substantial discount from that list price.  Being this affordable I believe that the book has a tremendous potential for a lot of sales and thus may affect a lot of people’s lives for Christ.

About the book.  It is a fictional book about the body of Christ and details our experiences 14+ years ago in a church we were apart of just before stepping out to plant churches and pastor.  Only the names and places in the book are fictional however.  A couple had just recently come to faith in Christ, gotten married, and moved up to WA and started attending our church and my home fellowship.  Not too long after coming up the wife/mother was diagnosed with lung cancer.  She then went through a 2 ½ year battle with the cancer while the church ministered to the family continually. 

The book shows how that our church learned through this experience what it means to be the body of Christ, what the church is supposed to be like and the things that we are to do.  Revival happened as a result of ministering in love to this family’s needs, as people simply began loving each other and sharing the gospel, responding to needs wherever they were found.  The book also tells about how this woman became a spiritual giant in a very short amount of time when faced with her own mortality.  God used her life greatly and the godly legacy of her life continues to live on today.

This woman’s family members provided me her diary she was journaling in through her experiences as well as an expanded testimony given to the church two weeks before she passed away about all of the things that God had done through her life through her illness.  I have also gotten quite a bit of input from those who were there at our fellowship at the time and knew us and this woman and her family well.

    Linnea,

    Thank you. The last two Wednesdays for our church’s midweek Bible study I have just read to everyone from the book (we’re now 1/2 through it). Then, I’ve asked for questions and comments, and some very interesting and edifying dialog has ensued. I really think this book has a great potential to change people’s lives & churches. I’m starting to do some marketing work now. Anyway, thank you for the encouragement. God bless,

    JimB
