Thursday Giveaway – The Way

The Way connects a restless generation, a generation looking for direction, to Jesus – the Way, the Truth, and the Life. It uses first-person stories, reflections, and questions which bring the Bible to the real world.

Today’s 16–30 year olds are looking for connection to something bigger than themselves. They want something that works and is honest, authentic. Something that they can actually experience. Something that gives them hope.

The Way offers a way that works. A way that matters. A way that asks them to step up to something important enough—big enough—to live for. It’s a visual, textual, and interactive experience for a generation that has blurred the boundaries of media. It’s an interactive experience for those ready for collaboration, change, and a challenge.

Giveaway: Bound for Glory

Two of the best-loved translations of the Bible together in one volume make this Bible one of today’s most popular parallel Bibles. Now available with 16 pages of Timothy R. Botts’ Bound for Glory art, including the Scripture verses that inspired each piece of art. The lyrics of each spiritual are also included in the front matter. His art pieces honor the persevering faith of the African-American people as they worshiped God through hymns and spiritual songs, and they visually represent a slice of America’s musical history. These spirituals continue to be performed by today’s symphonies and classical choirs.

The work of TIMOTHY R. BOTTS reaches back to letterforms as old as first century and combines with them contemporary graphic design principles in order to express the meaning of great words. With a BFA in graphic design from Carnegie Mellon University, he has designed more than 600 books, including 9 of his own work including Doorposts, Messiah, and a Bible illustrated in his calligraphy. He is a part time instructor with College of DuPage and has taught workshops internationally. He is artistic director for Masterpiece Ministries, an annual arts camp for high school students. His work is part of the permanent collection of the Newberry Library.
