My brother Michael’s first book, The Abiding Companion, is now available on Amazon.com, with a Kindle version coming shortly.
The Abiding Companion is like a devotional guide, featuring one short essay for each chapter of the New Testament. (If you’re counting, that’s nine months of daily reading per year, or an entire year if you read one essay per weekday.)
What makes The Abiding Companion unique is the friendly, deeply personal nature of Mike’s voice. Other guides tend toward starchy lectures … but reading The Abiding Companion is like chatting about your daily Bible reading with a bright, compassionate, literate friend who has a knack for telling stories or sharing insights that bring the spirit of Scripture to life.
Inside, you’ll find an imaginative “exclusive interview” with the apostle Paul … a life-saving warning from a rain-soaked stranger … and a simple but effective three-step plan for dealing with difficult people. Some of the stories are guaranteed to make you smile; others are designed to help you search your heart.
If you’re a Sunday School or Bible study leader, The Abiding Companion is jam-packed with stories you can use as lesson ideas. If you’re an independent student of Scripture, the book makes for a pleasant complement to your daily study. If you know someone who loves reading work inspired by Scripture, this book will be the perfect Christmas gift.
It’s also my brother’s first book … and, as you might suspect, I’m bursting with pride. It’s been encouraging to see him buckle down, do the writing, and make his ideas into a beautiful reality. There’s a lot of hard work in these pages … and I’m really happy to see Mike go from one of the many people who talks about writing a book … to becoming one of those very few people who really do.
