“The story isn’t over. There are still prophets in our midst. There are still dragons and beasts. It might not look like it, but the Resistance is winning. The light is breaking through.”
– from “Resistance Stories,” in Inspired
UPDATE June 12, 2018: The Pre-order offer has ended but the life of the book has just begun. Thank you for your interest!
We’re still a few weeks away from the release of my new book, Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again, but today I wanted to let you know about a generous pre-order incentive offered by my publisher.
If you pre-order Inspired before June 11, and submit proof of purchase, you will receive:
- The 40-page Inspired Reading Guide (PDF), written entirely by me, which includes questions for reflection and discussion, ideas for creative engagement with the relevant biblical texts, and loads of additional resources. (If you’re considering reading this book with a group, I wrote this with you in mind.)
- Two audio chapters from Inspired (MP3), including a creative reflection imagined from the perspective Hagar, an important female figure in the book of Genesis.
- Three GORGEOUS prints created by Connie Gabbert (PDF), the artist who designed the cover of Inspired. The prints feature two quotes from the book and also my “life verse,” Proverbs 27:14—“If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse.”
In addition to all of this, Barnes & Noble sweetened the deal by offering an exclusive, limited run of autographed copies, available for pre-order.
All it takes is two steps:
I confess I’m really eager to see how you respond to this book. It’s unlike any other I’ve written, for in addition to memoir, it includes original poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay, all aimed at engaging your questions, doubts, ideas, and imagination as you wrestle with the Bible along with me.
So read with an open and curious mind.
Read with your skepticism and your imagination engaged.
Read expecting dragons.
