Book Review: The Lost Sermons of C.H. Spurgeon His Earliest Outlines and Sermons Between 1851 and 1854
"This book is a gift from the body of Christ and I'm thankful that Christian George has taken the time to produce this high quality book that is sure to bless Christians for generations to come. From my understanding, Mr. George has a few hundred more Spurgeon outlines that he is planning on publishing in 12 volumes over the next few years. You can already pre-order Volume II which is coming out September 2017. I highly recommend this volume!" Click here to link to the full review.
It's not a sweet Sunday School Novel...
"Full disclosure: This is not a sweet Sunday School novel. It's a broken people, bad choices, major consequences story. But when we're honest, we broken people are sitting in the pews (or at home, or wandering, or lost) wishing for a safe place to be authentic. To share the raw mess and find hope and healing. To break our silence and get out from under the strain."--author, Bethany Kaczmarek in comments about her new Pelican Book Group release, Strains of Silence

Classic Title to become Film...
New Hope Publishers Acquired

According to John Herring, president and CEO of Iron Stream Media, his company initially began as a part of Student Life. The titles and studies associated with Student Life Bible Study were sold to NavPress. After a brief time with NavPress and the Navigators, Life Bible Study was born as an independent company and expanded to include content for adults and children in addition to students.

“Now known as Iron Stream Media, we produce curriculum, discipleship materials, educational content and other tools for ministries and missions,” Herring explained. “Much of our content is well-known by missionaries who use our studies at no cost in regions around the world. For our friends in the United States, we deliver incredibly beautiful Bible Study lessons designed to be taught in a variety of ways, keeping God’s Word central in all we do."
