New Release – How Do I Get to Heaven by Nancy Gorrell

Death and the loss of loved ones is something that each of us must face in this life.  When the time comes, this can be especially difficult for children who often do not have a fully developed biblical understanding of death and the life that follows.  In How Do I Get to Heaven?, Nancy Gorrell strives to present a biblical view of death, with the hope that it may be a blessing for the young children that we (and Jesus) love.

Each chapter is only a few pages in length, answering questions like:

  • How can I get to heaven?
  • Do I have to buy salvation?
  • What is justification?

As new words are introduced, children are encouraged to write them down in a notebook to answer questions and reflect on what they are learning.  This is an easy way to encourage your children in their writing and will allow you to introduce them to the idea of journaling.  How do I get to Heaven? would work well for parents and grandparents to read aloud to children ages 4 to 7 at meal time or bed time.  Children ages 8 and older should have not problem reading this book by themselves, but parents are encouraged to engage their children in discussion on the topics covered in each chapter.

How do I Get to Heaven? is available at your local Christian book store. Here are a few of the places where you can purchase it online: ChristianBook.com, 10ofthose.com, BarnesandNoble.com or Amazon.com. Learn more about the book at ChristianFocus.com.

About the Author:
Nancy Gorrell takes great delight telling about the Christian faith in simple ways for children to understand. She lives with her husband and family in California and teaches in a Christian school there.

Announcing The Priority of Preaching Blog Tour – January 23-27

“This little book is written for ordinary ministers who preach regularly to ordinary people in ordinary places… Most of us preach in gatherings that are smaller than we would wish and tougher than we might have hoped when we entered pastoral ministry… There is a voice on our shoulders who whispers as we prepare, and then as we preach, ‘Is it really worth it?” (From The Introduction)

Christopher Ash tells us that it is worth it. More than that, he sets out a charter for preaching that draws from the very roots of the Old Testament – showing us that nothing in the world is more worthwhile – for preaching is God’s strategy to rebuild a broken world.

About Christopher Ash:

Christopher Ash is an ordained minister in the Anglican Church and Director of the Cornhill Training Course, a one-year course designed to provide Bible-handling and practical ministry skills to those exploring their future role in Christian work.

Blog Tour Details:

The Priority of Preaching blog tour will run January 23rd through the 27th. Participants must be willing to post a review of the book on their personal blog and an internet retailer of their choice such as Amazon.com.

A limited number of entries will be selected via the form below:

This blog tour is now full. Thank you for your interest.
