It’s finally time for the long-awaited release of my collection of essays about women of the Bible — Daughters of Grace. I got my complimentary copies today, and as of today it’s also available on my publisher’s website. (There’s a link that allows you to purchase it online from the Adventist Book Center). Eventually it will be available on amazon.com, but it takes a while to get these books listed there.
I think I’ve said this before, but this is by far the most attractive book I’ve ever been involved with. It’s a slim hardcover, beautifully designed, 128 pages including 26 full-colour illustrations by the very talented Robert Hunt. Each one accompanies one of my 26 articles, originally published in Women of Spirit magazine, about Bible women ranging from Eve to Euodia. If you want to get a sense of what the essays are like, a few were published online before the book came out, so you can read about Abigail, Dorcas, or Sarah, and see if it’s going to be your kind of book.
As part of the Shameless Self-Promotion Release Party, I have ten copies to give away to anyone who is willing to help promote the book. Here are the requirements:
1) If you have a blog or website that is read by the type of reader who might enjoy Daughters of Grace (generally, Christian women, I would assume), and
2) You promise to review or at least talk about the book on your website after you get it, and
3) You are one of the first 10 people to post below saying, “I want one!”
…then I’ll send you a free copy. And if you don’t want to join the SSP promo-fest but would like to read the book, again, click the publisher’s link above and follow the “Buy Now” link to get it for just $18 US.
