9780802412270Congratulations to the newly elected president of the National Baptist Convention USA: Dr. Jerry Young, Pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi.

My new book, The Difference Jesus Makes. came put this week. It is simply about trusting Jesus in every situation. In six readable, biblical, and practical chapters about who Jesus is and what Jesus can do, you will find your mind renewed and your faith refreshed to face whatever dangers, toils, and snares are before you, with absolute confidence that Jesus makes the difference. Pick up a copy here. Or look for it in stores and online. All the best!
