God’s Favorite Place on Earth

If you haven’t heard, Frank Viola is coming out with a new book! It’s called: God’s Favorite Place on Earth (David C. Cook, May 1, 2013).

Attention: Frank has asked that you not buy the book until its release date on May 1st because everyone who buys the book between May 1st and May 7th will receive 25 free books & audios by 15 different authors. 

I first made contact with Frank back in 2006 at a very tumultuous time in my life. I was stepping out of vocational ministry (I thought for good), and he was there pointing me to find my identity in Christ.

Over the years I have come to know Frank as a personal friend and mentor. Frank has a real gift. I believe that gift is leading folks to encounter the Lord Jesus in all his splendor. Once again, in a time of struggle and transition in my life, my brother comes out with a book that ministers to my soul.

And I believe it will minister to you as well.

Here is what Frank wrote about the book on his blog:

“God’s Favorite Place on Earth is different than anything I’ve ever written. It’s a hybrid of fiction and non-fiction. The premise of the book is simple and 100% Biblical: when Jesus was on the earth, He was rejected everywhere He went . . . from Bethlehem, to Nazareth, to Jerusalem. The only exception was the little village of Bethany. The curtain opens with Lazarus, who is now ready to die, telling the incomparable story of Jesus’ interactions with him, Martha, and Mary. God’s Favorite Place on Earth blends drama, devotion, theology, biblical narrative, and first-century history. Within each narrative, the common struggles that we Christians face are addressed and answered. These are just some of the many lessons you’ll find in God’s Favorite Place on Earth. Lessons that were born out of my own struggles, challenges, mistakes, disappointments, and experiences.”

I actually felt closer to Jesus when I read this book. I’m not just trying to help Frank sell a book here. So you can believe me when I say that you haven’t read a book quite like this one. This needs to be your next read.

Check out this video trailer for the book!

Please stay tuned for a Q&A with Frank Viola here at the blog on May 1st.
