Turns out, the folks at Ignatius Press are offering it free as an eBook until November 24, 2014, along with a new Doran short story. (Can you see me jumping up and down?)
And while we’re talking about good stories, here’s one that’s not a novel: Loved As I Am, by Sister Miriam Heidland.
A foreword by Christopher West and a back cover blurb by Jason Evert: even if I hadn’t heard Sr. Miriam Heidland speak at a women’s conference last year, I probably still would have jumped at the chance to read new book, Loved as I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus (Ave Maria Press, 2014).
Heidland is the kind of speaker who holds her audience in the palm of her hand; I wasn’t so sure her book would do the same. I remember, vividly, live-tweeting with tears running down my face as she spoke about her life and her journey.
Though I’m not normally a big fan of reading conversion stories, what Heidland has crafted is as much an invitation to her readers as it is a chronicle of her journey to Christ.
My full review, complete with excerpts, is over at the Register today.
