THE PEACEMAKING CHURCH
An Update on a Book Long in Coming
I submitted to Baker Publishing Group a proposal for writing a book way back at the end of 2014.
Much to my delight they accepted and fixed a date for submission.
Then the wheels came off with Nancy’s cancer fight and my jaw surgeries.
My editor graciously granted one delay after another.
In September of last year, I finally turned in a draft manuscript.
After Baker ran me through the editorial meat grinder (thankfully), I labored over a revision. It passed muster with the publisher in December 2017.
Today I learned from the marketing department that Baker posted a page on their website about the book with links to Amazon and other vendors. You can access it here.
I love the cover they designed. Ken Sande of RW360 wrote me a more-favorable-than-I-dared-imagine foreword. Thank you, brother!
The subtitle differs from my suggested version: The Best Fight Is the One Your Church Never Has. But what do I know? When you’re a rookie, you gladly defer to the pros.
The process begins now for seeking endorsements. That’s a big deal, since I’m a small potatoes pastor in Florida. But God knows how He may use the effort.
Baker tells me they plan to publish this November. Watch for further updates, if you are at all interested. I’ll keep you posted.
I am so grateful for God’s grace to get this done. Thanks to so many who have cheered me along the road to publication.
