30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 21

Screenshot 2014-11-21 at 7.07.28 PMI am thankful for God is Near

The Christmas season is almost upon us (shame on each of you with nativity scenes and trees up and lit already). It was during this time of year, preparing for our church choir Christmas cantata, that I was first inspired to begin writing a book which I thought would be titled Immanuel, God with Us. Immanuel refers specifically to the incarnation, but God has historically gone to great lengths to be near his people. He has been, is now, and will continue to make a way for people made in his image to come into his presence. In a nutshell that is the story of the entire Bible.

God is Near: His Promise to His People was published in May of this year. It was a decade long process that I wasn’t sure at times would ever result in a finished, published work. I am proud to be able to hand someone the paperback volume and say “This is what I believe.” I know better than anyone that the finished product is imperfect, but I am thankful to have reach this point of the process. It is encouraging each time someone tells me how much they enjoy it or tell me how much they got out of it. To God be the glory.

Thanks also to the good people at OutSkirts Press. For reviews and order information click here.
