New and Noteworthy: Authors from churches of Christ
John Orr. I Died Last Night , Texas: Start2Finish Press, 2015. 66 pages. $6.99.
This slender book gives readers a fictitious, first-person account of a man who finds himself on the wrong side of eternity.
With at least one and as many as 15 biblical footnotes at the end of each chapter, Orr, a preacher for more than 35 years, paints a vivid picture of a terrifying experience.
Orr currently serves as evangelism and outreach minister for the Faith Village Church of Christ in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Young adult ministry A Mountain Moving Faith
Matthew Morine. A Mountain Moving Faith: Teaching Young People to Reach the Ultimate Summit. Nashville, Tenn.: Gospel Advocate, 2015. 132 pages. $9.99.
Morine, pulpit minister for the Castle Rock Church of Christ in Colorado, teaches about faith as he tells of his experiences on the “fourteeners” in Colorado (mountains of 14,000 feet or higher).
This 13-chapter mix of memoir and faith-growing instruction is suitable for high school or college Bible classes.
It also is engaging enough to be read independently.
