CINCINNATI, Sept. 25, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Anita Higman has been successfully capturing readers' hearts for years through the stories and characters she's created in thirty published books. Combining her renowned gift for storytelling with her passion for Scripture, her newest book artfully links real people from the Bible with fictional stories that reveal who they were and why their lives matter today.
Standard Publishing proudly announces the release of WHERE GOD FINDS YOU, 40 DEVOTIONS BRINGING BIBLE CHARACTERS TO LIFE by bestselling author Anita Higman.
"WHERE GOD FINDS YOU is emotionally capturing, yet accurately written," said Dove Award-winning Christian music artist, Rachael Lampa. "It allowed me to see the people of the Bible less as symbols or superheroes and more as real, broken, and ordinary people who needed God just as much as I do."
Each of the 40 devotions features:
- a dramatic retelling of the story, helping the reader see the Scripture and the people in it in a new way
- the story told straight from the Bible
- a thoughtful connection of the story to life today
- questions about the story that are ideal for personal reflection or group discussion
"Anita has done something truly unique to bring to life the people in God's Word," explained Matt Lockhart, Vice President, Product Development at Standard Publishing. "By retelling each story in a first-person, modern context, the reader is instantly transported into the minds, hearts, struggles, and triumphs of the people from the Bible."
Through this devotional, readers will be able to not only understand the people in the Bible better, but will be able to apply the lessons learned from those lives into their own lives.
WHERE GOD FINDS YOU can be purchased at Christian retailers across the United States and online at www.standardpub.com, www.Amazon.com, or anywhere Christian books are sold.
