I just found out that one of my very favorite college friends, Russ Masterson, recently published his first book! It was released from Tyndale House Publishers as an e-book on July 1st.
All I have to say is this......Fists in the air, Bruce!
(Inside joke, sorry to all of you who now think I'm a huge dork.)
(But, if you've been reading this blog, then you should probably already know that.)
(Also, we called Russ "Bruce" in college, which was hysterically funny at the time, for reasons I don't remember anymore.)
Anyway, I'm super excited to read his book, and not just because having a friend who's a published author makes me feel famous. (Although it does.) Mostly, I'm excited because I know Russ to be an awesome man of God, and I can't wait to see how God speaks to me through his book.
SO....if you have an e-reader (check), have already finished the Hunger Games trilogy (check-and just kidding, you should totally read this before you read the Hunger Games), and want a really great book to get into next, take a look at the summary below, and GO BUY THIS BOOK!
40 Days without Food: Divine Goodness to a Starving Soul
By Russ Masterson
“I had a college degree, and soon a seminary degree to accompany it, yet I didn’t know where to go or what to do.” Russ Masterson had read and heard about purpose, but didn’t have a clue what his own purpose was. And there was emptiness where there should have been value. As he puts it, “I kept hoping a step would arrive when it was time to lift my foot.”
Disillusioned with his life, as well as with God, he heard this advice: fast from food for 40 days. Faithless and frazzled, Russ accepted the challenge, hoping for direction, reflecting on the past, and wrestling with issues like purpose, faith, and love.
In this book, readers will find a fresh literary voice — an insightful thinker who meets people in their humanity while helping them to see they can be rescued from it. The journey of these forty days without food will help you explore what really matters in life
Available on the Kindle, Nook, and iPad (via the free Kindle app for iPad).
