Pre-publication news about my third book: #TOTT

My third book is soon to arrive! It is entitled "#TOTT - Think On These Things," and it is mainly developed from a compilation of my morning tweets with adequate improvements so as to be transformed into a daily reader.

#TOTT features a mixture of devotional & doctrinal succinct entries (Bible verse and annotation).  The reader is encouraged to think about each daily entry spanning the entire year. It can easily be used as a devotional tool or even as a short topical Bible study.

My desire is that readers would be strengthened in the Lord, and think or meditate upon His Word which is our source of conviction and comfort.

Please feel free to follow me on Twitter (@hardecker) or keep an eye on this blog for further news or updates on #TOTT.
