Coming Soon: Detoxing from Church

There is definitely a growing sense of excitement and anticipation in nearing the finish line of publishing a book.
The home stretch for the book version of Detoxing from Church -- in print as well as e-publishing -- is coming to a close. While I can't promise the exact day the book will be released, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting very near.

Detoxing from Church will be available in numerous e-formsts, including Kindle, Kobo, Sony, etc., as well as in print. Once the book is released, there will be a permanent link in the sidebar where all the appropriate links will be listed.

About the cover art:

When people talk about their negative experiences with church, the tendency is to focus almost exclusively on what they resented and how they were wounded. If that were my focus in writing this book, it would make more sense to use a bio-hazard warning as a cover image.

But my focus in writing is on recovery, and becoming emotionally & spiritually healthy. The emphasis is on the positive outcomes of 'detoxing from church'.

This book is intended to be the literary equivalent to offering a cup of cold water (Matthew 10:40-42), and the cover image was chosen to reflect this.

Of course, being married to a professional photographer is a great help, as is Wendy's remarkable creativity and seemingly endless flow of ideas. I love her inclusion of lemons, limes, and mint leaves to the cup of cold water -- it looks even more refreshing as a result. And that is, ultimately, my hope for those who read Detoxing from Church. To be refreshed and encouraged.

Stay tuned.
