New Releases

I've Been Called Now What?
Adam Bond
Judson Press, December 2012
So, you've accepted a call to ministry. What next? This book anticipates the questions you ask after accepting the call to ministry: How do I discern the right ministry setting for me? Are pulpit preaching and parish ministry the only viable options? Should I go to a seminary or a Bible college? Should I be ordained - and if so, when? This resource casts an overview of the ministry landscape for a new minister at any stage of the journey, and recommends resources and traveling companions along the way.

Still Lolo
Lauren Scruggs
Tyndale Momentum, November 2012
In December 2011, Lauren (“LoLo”) Scruggs, a 23-year-old fashion journalist, suffered a sudden injury that made headlines around the world. She had been on a short flight to look at Christmas lights and, upon exiting the small plane, was hit by the still-moving propeller blade. A frantic 911 call, several major surgeries, and thousands of prayers later: Lauren lived. But she lost her left hand and left eye. And she had to face some incredibly difficult questions: What kind of future will I have? Where is God in all this pain? Will anyone ever be able to love me now? In Still LoLo, Lauren speaks out for the first time since her accident. She and her family reveal what really happened that night, what Lauren’s life is like today, what got them through their journey toward healing, and how they conquered all odds to persevere as a family. It’s a compelling and fiercely beautiful story of faith, determination, and staying true to who you are—no matter what.
