New Edition of Clean Read Books Today is Out!

Jo Edd Morris

Archaeologist Christopher Jordan and ancient manuscript expert Kathryn Ferguson are brought together by famed New Testament scholar Andrew Stewart of Edinburgh, Scotland. On a research expedition to Maaloula, Syria, Stewart stumbles across an ancient scroll, a truncated rough draft of the gospel of Mark. All evidence indicates John Mark is the author. The completed autograph scroll, the archaeological find of the millennium, is believed to be in a cave in Maaloula. Amid the Syrian revolt, Chris and Kate travel to Maaloula. Time is of the essence. The obstacles are overwhelming. Paralleling their perilous quest is John Mark’s escape with the manuscript from the Roman siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE, his journey to Damascus where he can complete his gospel and make copies for distribution throughout the empire. A major theme threading the work is the resurrection. Is the last page of the gospel of Mark missing? Or did the author intend to leave the resurrection dangling, shrouded in mystery? The answer is in the last page.

The Singing Quilt By Kathi Macias

 

Jolissa Montoya believes God is calling her to work with the disadvantaged children in her inner-city neighborhood. There’s only one problem: The children wouldn’t be able to understand her. Jolissa suffers from a speech impediment and has a thick accent because Spanish is her first language. Ridiculed through much of her youth, she is quite shy and reticent to speak. She is convinced that what God has spoken to her heart is impossible. Impossible, that is, until one day when her confidante shows her a quilt—a quilt that depicts the life of a courageous woman. Can another woman’s courage move her to try the impossible and step out and follow God wherever He leads her?

The Singing Quilt is set against the backdrop of the life of Fanny Crosby, who in addition to writing hundreds of songs was also a well-known public speaker and active in Christian rescue missions despite her disability. Readers will be inspired not to let fear or a disability prevent them from answering what they think is God’s impossible call.

 

The Singing Quilt is the third book in the contemporary fiction “Quilt” series (The Doctor’s Christmas Quilt, The Moses Quilt) written by award-winning author Kathi Macias.

 

NOTE: The Singing Quilt completes the series, which focuses on various social issues, including racial and pro-life issues.

 

BONUS: Supplemental online book club materials will be available at NewHopeDigital.com.

 

Reviews:

“This book was God kissed!” ~M.Fields

__________

“I love the way that Ms. Macias does her research in order to not only write this Quilt series but all of her books. I have learned many things from her books. Her story and inclusion of facts about these famous and courageous woman in this series is eye opening. I cannot wait for the next story!” ~Calliegh (via Amazon.com)

 

A Word With the Author…

 

When we asked Kathi Macias why she wrote The Singing Quilt and what she hoped Readers would gain from reading it, she said . . .

“I wrote this book because I so admire Fanny Crosby, and I wanted readers who may struggle with insecurities that keep them from pursuing all God has purposed for them (much like Jolissa in the book) to realize that with God NOTHING is impossible!”
