I’m thrilled to reveal the cover of 21 Days of Grace: Stories that Celebrate God’s Unconditional Love, the first book in my brand-new book series of Fiction-Lover’s Devotionals, put out by BroadStreet Publishing.
Christians today have long loved devotionals, but they are also developing a strong love for fiction. They want to read stories about characters they can relate to, who experience situations similar to their own, and learn from those examples how to live out their faith. For them, life lessons are more easily absorbed through reading fiction than any other way.
21 Days of Grace fits all of these needs. It’s a collection of engaging, inspirational short fiction stories written by new, intermediate, and well-known Christian authors, including Angela Hunt, Deborah Raney, Cindy Woodsmall, Cecil Murphey, Tracy Higley, Robin Bayne, and more. Like Jesus’ parables, these stories deal with important life issues in a subtle, unpressured manner. And, as Jesus did, the authors follow up with life applications based on the stories, suggesting how the messages inherent in them can be applied to the reader’s daily life.
21 Days of Grace: Stories that Celebrate God’s Unconditional Love will release on June 1, 2015. Pre-sales begin on May 1. Mark your calendar now!
The second book in the series, 21 Days of Christmas: Stories of God’s Greatest Gift, comes out in October.
I am currently looking for submissions for the next two books in the series, 21 Days of Love: Stories that Celebrate Treasured Relationships (for Valentine’s Day) and 21 Days of Joy: Stories that Celebrate Motherhood (for Mother’s Day). Details, guidelines, and deadlines are on this website, under the Devo tab.
