My congratulations to clients who made their way to the front at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference to accept their awards. They represent a lot of hard work as they developed the skills necessary to become winners.
When the Evangelical Publishers Association introduced the Kenneth N. Taylor Lifetime Achievement Award at its spring 2016 Seminar, they had no idea that at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference one of Dr. Taylor’s early associates, Les Stobbe, would also receive a Lifetime Achievement Award in Publishing. For both awards to be featured in the same ECPA Rush to Press calls for a snapshot of their publishing life together.

Non-believers scoff when Christians trade their sacred cows (everything they value) for a life with Jesus. All they see is a handful of useless biblical “beans.” Peter says there’s life in those beans. Jesus and the Beanstalk unpacks 2 Peter 1:1-10 using fairy tale, humor, and modern culture to show today’s believers how to unleash that promise and discover how to topple the giants in their lives.

The intended audience for Designed for Good is men and women who would self-identify as people of faith and are interested in how this identity may impact or influence how they organize, manage, and run their daily lives. It is also written with the growing number of disillusioned people of faith in our country in mind.
