Congratulations to Roger Hutchison and Morehouse Publishing for the April 18th release of The Art of Calm.
A revelatory, pragmatic, and beautifully rendered companion for the millions suffering from mental health issues
An invaluable resource for anyone struggling with anxiety, fear, or depression, The Art of Calm is a lifesaving and inspiring guidebook that empowers us to break free from the emotional bondage of mental illness. Bursting with deep personal insight and uplifting practical guidance, this remarkable and therapeutic journey begins by charting the author’s own devastating psychological descent―which included panic attacks so severe they landed him in the emergency room. When the medical system proved unable to provide sustained help, however, a floundering Roger Hutchison turned to his faith for guidance. The healing path God led him on was nothing short of miraculous, offering not only authentic spiritual renewal but also a profound sense of belonging in a world where he once only felt like a stranger.
Weaving these personal stories with thoughtful questions, journaling prompts, and a wide range of inspirational practices, Hutchison creates a self-help tapestry of compassion, vulnerability, and action. At the end of each chapter, a colorful variety of reflections and creative exercises―from photography, music, and meditation to cooking, hiking, and art― encourage readers to get up and discover a more centered and peaceful life. The result is an essential tool for finding tranquility in the midst of both inner and outer turmoil.
Congratulations to Greg Munck and Core Media for the May 9th release of The Guide: Survival, Warfighting, Peacemaking.
Life with a drug-addicted father meant sleeping with one eye open, nervously anticipating but not knowing what chaotic event would happen next. Whether it was having a shotgun placed against his head or snorting cocaine at 13 with his dad, the unpredictable and unwanted were Greg Munck’s normal. But just when the anxiety and anger inside of him were starting to vent and rumble, the United States Marines and a long boat ride to Kuwait to fight in the Gulf War intervened to change the trajectory—and eternity—of a twenty-year-old warfighter gifted by God to lead men.
Simple, emotional, and visceral, this story is about earth’s brokenness, God’s presence, and the true significance that resonates deep in the soul of every man. To be great and to do great things are embedded in the heart of every man, but the process of becoming that man demands courage, perseverance, and faith. Fighting the good fight isn’t easy, but under the right leadership, we see that overwhelming odds can be overcome and that our truest purpose can be discovered. In The Guide: Survival, Warfighting, Peacemaking, Greg Munck invites you into his life so that you can discover the bravery to face and win your biggest emotional and spiritual battles.
Congratulations to Preston Ulmer and Nav Press for on the June 6th release of Deconstruct Faith, Discover Jesus: How Questioning Your Religion Can Lead You to a Healthy and Holy God.
What If Deconstructing Your Faith Isn’t a Phase but a Holy Process?
There’s probably a really good reason you picked up this book. Are you desperate to be in relationship with family or friends who are questioning their faith? Are you experiencing your own deconstruction of faith?
Here is your invitation to rethink everything you thought you knew.
In this process, you’ll . . .
- learn why it’s important to deconstruct (and how we are wired to do it);
- define deconstruction and deconversion―what they really mean;
- consider WWJD (What Would Jesus Deconstruct?); and
- apply the FUSE method to deconstruct for yourself.
Deconstruct Faith, Discover Jesus will help you to enter the mindset of a deconstructionist. A worldview with a high capacity for paradoxes. A mental space that outweighs your self-interest in being right. A tendency to see Christian beliefs as inseparable from Christian ethics.
In doing so, you will find the original deconstructionist, Jesus, right beside you.
Congratulations to Linda S. Clare with Sandy Silverthorne and Broadstreet Publshing for on the June 6th release of Thank God for Cats!
Celebrate the blessing of cats!
Life can get lonely, but cat lovers know cats are always ready to console them, make them laugh, and lead them to empty food dishes.
Even when your fuzzy friend falls asleep in your lap, your cat’s quirky antics can reveal God at work, reminding you to catnap in his presence. In Thank God for Cats!, you will find
- heartwarming cat stories to encourage you,
- spiritual truths cats can teach you about life and God,
- playful illustrations of cats and those who feed them, and
- practical ways to love the kitties (and humans) in your life.
Cuddle up with your furry felines and thank God for all the purrs, paws, and even hairballs he has given you.
Congratulations to Shellie Rushing Tomlinson and Salem Books for the June 13th release of Seizing the Good Life: Discover Peace and Joy through the Study of John’s Gospel.
Living on high alert drains your energy and steals your joy. There is a better way and Seizing the Good Life will help you find it as it takes you through the Gospel of John.
If our chaotic culture has left you drained of joy, here’s some good news: there is a way to get it back—and keep it.
Let’s face it. Joy is becoming as scarce in our culture as fresh eggs at the grocery store. Constant headlines about one catastrophe after another, along with living in a society bent on erasing God from our consciousness, can leave us stressed out and working hard just to get by—far from the good life of abundant joy Jesus promised us.
And yet, He did promise us that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. So how do we go about seizing the good life from the jaws of depression and hopelessness that threaten us now?
Shellie Rushing Tomlinson has walked this path and knows the way. With the Gospel according to John as her roadmap—and plenty of personal stories, insights, and a healthy dollop of humor for good measure—she can help you not only rediscover the peace and joy found in friendship with Jesus, the Lover of your soul, but maintain it over the long haul.
God never intended for you to hold on to a dry faith with chewed-up fingernails. You really can know peace and joy in the middle of our anxious and angry culture. A deep dive into this study will help you seize the good life once again.
