have published books titled Redwoods and Whales, God Will Make a Way and The Golden Thread respectively.
The Golden Thread: Experiencing God’s Presence in Every Season of Life, the highly anticipated new title from acclaimed worship leader, songwriter, pastor and author Darlene Zschech explored other life-altering events for her, including the journey to plant Hope Unlimited Church (HopeUC) with her husband Mark in New South Wales, Australia. Whether through a health crisis or her family’s relocation to a new city, Zschech demonstrates a willingness to follow the Holy Spirit as He divinely connects each of her life’s circumstances. Darlene is the author of five books, including Extravagant Worship (2004), The Art of Mentoring (2011) and Revealing Jesus: A 365-Day Devotional (2013).
Don Moen – internationally renown, multi-award winning worship artist and writer – released his first book God Will Make a Way: Discovering His Hope in Your Story on October 16, 2018.Written with prominent biographer Robert Noland and featuring a foreword from World Champion Boxer Manny Pacquiao, God Will Make a Way shares the story behind the award-winning hallmark song of Moen’s career, and encourages readers to rest in the fact that God is always working, though often in ways we cannot see. Moen knows first-hand and wants others to know that no matter how dire the circumstances, God does not forget his children.
“As I’ve traveled around the world, I’ve seen God work in countless ways, bringing hope to people who have lost hope. I have seen Him make a way where there seemed to be no way, and I’m excited to share many of these stories in my new book,” said Moen.
You might know Phil as the kiwi who used to be in the Newsboys, or the head of US based worship group Zealand Worship. Whatever you know him from, he’s certainlly lived an interesting life, and now he’s set to release a book of personal stories about a life spent in ministry next month!
According to his publisher, thomas nelson “In Redwoods and Whales, Phil Joel makes a passionate plea to a new generation of believers to not get “beached” in their faith, but rather get planted like mighty a redwood. By unlocking key Scriptures, Joel shows the peril of wandering away from the “pod” and the unending pleasures under the canopy of God’s amazing Redwoods.”
He says: “I never intended to write a book at all. It wasn’t some kind of bucket list thing, I simply had an experience in northern California that I felt prompted to write down and then somehow it kept going and growing from there,” Joel says of the inspiration behind Redwoods and Whales. “Slowly, after I’d connected a bunch of dots, it began to shape into something that I felt might be helpful for anyone feeling stranded and a little disoriented in life. I hope the book will inspire people to pursue a life with God in the center.”
