Today, we are so excited to let you know about a brand new endeavor we are undertaking. Obviously, as one who blogs so often, I enjoy writing, but blog posts are short-format. I also enjoy writing longer-format materials.
So, for some time, I have started a writing regimen that has led to the formation of our own family publishing company. Today, we are thrilled to let you know about 24:15 Publications.
We take the name from Joshua 24:15, where that great leader told the people of Israel, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” We want to help you and your family learn more about God’s Word so you can truly serve Him.
What makes our “publishing” company unique is that we are not actually doing any publishing of our own. All of our books are available through Amazon in a print-on-demand format. Some books will also be available on the Kindle. We will have some of our books in hand, but our goal is to drive people to our Amazon page so they can get whatever they want, whenever they want.
What We Have Available Right Now
In addition to “opening” today, we are starting 24:15 Publications with not one…not two…but THREE volumes! One of our goals was to have different types of books available, so we waited to start until we had three. All three of our books are very different.
So, what is available right now? I’m glad you asked. Here are the three books that are currently available for purchase.
1. Blessings from Revelation. This book is our first in our “Notes from the Preacher” series. These books are taken from sermon series or Bible classes that I have presented. This first offering deals with the seven “beatitudes” found in the book of Revelation. It is, of course, seven chapters in length and has 88 pages. This book is just $6.00.
2. The Epistle of Joy. We wanted to offer deeper Bible study books that any Christian could follow. Some like commentaries, while others like devotional books. So…we created “Commenotionals.” And our first offering in this series is a look at the book of Philippians. We like to think of these books are commentaries for the rest of us. Using footnotes for deeper Bible study, these books are still very readable and helpful. This volume contains 8 chapters and 136 pages. It costs just $9.00.
3. The “I” in Sin. Designed for Junior and Senior High Bible classes, our “I.E.A. Essentials” series is actually what got 24:15 Publications rolling in our minds. These are not typical class books. The goal is to simply give the teacher an Introduction, Explanation of the text or topic, and Application to share. Then, the teacher is to bring his or her own knowledge and study to help fill out the lesson. Our first offering in this series is a study of the word pictures for sin found in the Old Testament book of Hosea. Featuring 13 chapters and 94 pages, this book is only $4.50.
Wonderful! Where Can I Get These Books?
You may have noticed that we have not included any links to purchase the books yet. That’s because we also have taken the time and expense to create a brand new website for 24:15 Publications. We would like you to take a few moments to go take a look around the new webpage before going on to Amazon. The webpage still needs a few little tweaks, but we are very proud of it. It will show you more about the types of books, as well as the individual titles we have available.
Finally, How about Something Free?
About 3 weeks ago, we started a monthly email newsletter from this blog. Over 50 people got that first issue, and as I write this there are over 60 signed up to get the next one in late December. The first issue contained a tease at the bottom for a free giveaway to every person–yes, every person–who was signed up for the newsletter by that late December date.
Why are we including this today? Because the giveaway will be our fourth book, which will be a available in just a couple of weeks.
That’s right, every single person who signs up for our free monthly newsletter will get a link to download a pdf version our next book, Understanding the Love Chapter, when the December issue of the newsletter comes out (Friday, December 28). So, if you have not signed up, you’ll want to get on the list. After that date, the book will be $5.50. If you are not on the mailing list, simply click here to join.
So, there you have it. Our huge announcement. We are truly excited, but our prayer is not to sell a bunch of books. Our prayer is that anything you gain from these volumes helps you in your walk with Jesus Christ.
