New From Abingdon Press

From the earliest meetings of the Civil Rights Movement to offering the benediction for the first African American President of the United States, the Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery has been an eyewitness to some of the most significant events in our history. But, more important, he has been a voice that speaks truth to power – inspiring change that moves us forward.

In Singing the Lord’s Song in a Strange Land, you will find Dr. Lowery’s most enduring speeches and messages from the past 50 years including Coretta Scott King’s funeral and the benediction given at President Obama’s inauguration.

This book, however, is not simply a collection of words; it is the heart of a movement and a call to a new generation to carry the mantle – for all people.

A second book to consider is Bishop Joseph Walker’s Date with Destiny: Find the Love You Need.

Find your purpose for living through loving. Finding the love you need only will happen when you discover your true purpose for living. Bishop Joseph Walker’s Date with Destiny will help you fit your plans into the deeper and richer plan God has for you. Only then will you be able to get your relationships right.

Walker gives you the tools you need to fit the pieces of the relationship puzzle together. He shows how to embrace the concept that God means for all of us to have satisfying relationships.
