Announcing My New Book: Awaiting a Savior

As some of you may know, this year, I started sending out proposals to publishers related to a book I’d wanted to write for a while. (I’ve talked a bit about what I’ve been learning through it in the past.) After many months of prayer, effort, one or two mild panic attacks and a couple of really, really nice rejection letters, I’m pleased to announce that my new book, Awaiting a Savior: The Gospel, the New Creation and The End of Poverty, will be available October 1, 2011 from Cruciform Press!

Awaiting a Savior follows the storyline of the Bible to examine the problem of poverty—where it starts, where it ends and how we can faithfully respond in the meantime. I’m unbelievably excited to share this book with you (and it’s been killing Emily and me to not really be able to say too much publicly about it until now) and I’m very thankful to Kevin, Bob and Tim at Cruciform for allowing me to do so. The titles they’ve released so far have been excellent and I’m glad to have been added to the line-up.

In the weeks ahead, I’m looking forward to sharing some excerpts from the book as well as any cool things that may come up surrounding it. I would really appreciate you joining us in prayer as we prepare for the book’s release—and I’d love it if you’d pre-order a copy (which will be available in both print and digital editions for you e-book readers).

Looking forward to sharing more soon!

  4. Whoop! Congratulation Aaron. My hats off to you sir, no easy feat to dedicate to the hours of study, research and time both in prayer and in the Word. My hope is this book release is God’s good timing. May the experience give you the drive and confidence to make this book the first of many. May it be well received.

  5. Just curious.  What’s the purpose in keeping it a secret?

    1. Basically, we wanted to wait to talk about it until we were sure it was going to be a thing, so we stayed pretty quiet, aside from bringing a few friends into the loop to pray with us as I wrote.
