Here are the contents of this month’s newsletter:
1) Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
Barb and I have just returned from a 10-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land. After long flights there (10 hours from Denver to Frankfurt and 4 hours to Tel Aviv), we were off and running during 14- to 15-hour days. We went with a group from our church and one of our teaching pastors, Dave Erickson. We caught a bad bug on the way home and are just recovering from that, so maybe next month I’ll share a brief travel log with you. But suffice it to say, we’ll never read Bible passages about the Holy Land or the life of Christ the same way again.
2) Worldwide Webinar to Healthcare Professionals on “Recognizing Religious Struggle”
I had the honor and privilege of presenting a worldwide webinar to healthcare professionals on the topic of “Using a spiritual history to uncover religious struggle.” I was blown away to learn that people from 58 countries attended the International Christian Medical and Dental Associations (ICMDA) webinar. You can view a video of the presentation hereand find other resources that were offered ICMDA here.
3) Bryson City Tales coming out in an audiobook
I was delighted to hear from Webster Younce, the VP and publisher or Zondervan books, that my very best-selling book ever (nearly 150,000 sold), Bryson City Tales: Stories of a doctor’s first year of practice in the Smoky Mountains, is scheduled to be released as an audiobook sometime this summer. I’ll let you know more as I learn more. You can learn more about the book here.
4) Recent PR for At First Light interviews or reviews
PR: Here’s what happened in January and February:
4. Warfare History Network (2/01/23 – Book Review)
5. Moments with Marianne Radio Show (02-10-23 – a delightful Live radio interview on KMET that you might enjoy).
READER REVIEWS: I’m delighted that the book has received ~96% (361 of 378 reviews) 5-star ratings on:
If you’ve read the book, and have not yet submitted a rating on at least the top three sites above, please do. It would be a great favor to me and to others considering the book.
5) Excerpts from At First Light
The Horse Talk website in New Zealand has published three excerpts from my WWII book, At First Light: A True World War II Story of a Hero, His Bravery, and an Amazing Horse. The chapters they chose were about Dad’s secret mission to save the Lipizzans. If you’ve not read the book, you might enjoy reading these three short chapters. I hope you enjoy them.
