Linda Kuhar released Worthy of a Miracle with Leafwood Publishers. Despite a miraculous recovery from a coma, Christian life coach Linda Kuhar still struggled with a question familiar to many: “Am I worthy of God’s love?” This book follows Linda’s journey to accepting and believing in God’s love for her, and helps readers receive that love as well.
Sam Metcalf released Beyond the Local Church with IVP Books.
Though many have given up on the church, this book highlights how God is still raising up vibrant movements of Christians in a vast array of vocations around the world. Metcalf shows how God has always worked through entrepreneurial individuals and organizations that launched out in fresh ways, and affirms the strengths of missional movements to transform nations with the power of the gospel.
Joe Wheeler published Christmas in My Heart Vol. 24 with Pacific Press. This addition to the beloved series of old-fashioned Christmas stories encourages readers to step back from the dizzying rush of the Christmas season and find serenity in stories that point us back to the lowly stable in a little hamlet in Bethlehem, where a baby was born– and high overhead, a blazing star.
