Freedom, Astronauts, and Functional Faith


WATERLOO, ON — February 01, 2018— NavPress and Graf-Martin Communications are combining their respective expertise in and passion for Christian publishing to highlight three Canadian-authored Christian non-fiction titles helping readers apply faith to culture in new and relevant ways. Authors Danielle Strickland (The Ultimate Exodus) and Greg Paul (Resurrecting Religion) are both currently based in Toronto, Ontario, while John Van Sloten (Every Job a Parable) makes his home in Calgary, Alberta.

Don Pape, Publisher at NavPress is encouraged about the caliber of talent emerging in Canada. “I’m thrilled to work with such a dynamic group of Canadian writers as part of our NavPress lineup. Each of these authors brings a unique and compelling voice of experience and faith, and a much-needed message of freedom, purpose, and religion.”

Titles being featured include:

NavPress - The Ultimate ExodusThe Ultimate Exodus: Finding Freedom from What Enslaves You (Danielle Strickland)

God didn’t just say to Pharaoh, “Let my people go!” He also said to the Israelites—and He says to us—“Let go of what enslaves you, and follow me to freedom.” The Ultimate Exodus opens our eyes to the things that enslave us, and it sets us on the path of our own exodus. Danielle Strickland revisits the story of the Exodus to see what we can learn from a people who were slaves and who learned from God what it means to be free. We discover as we go that deliverance goes much deeper than our circumstances. God uproots us from the things we have become slaves to, and He takes us on a long walk to the freedom He created us to enjoy. https://www.daniellestrickland.com/the-ultimate-exodus/


NavPress - Every Job a Parable

Every Job A Parable: What Walmart Greeters, Nurses, and Astronauts Tell Us about God (John Van Sloten)

A Walmart greeter, a nurse, and an astronaut walk into a church. . . .They each bring with them their own exhaustions and exasperations, their own uncertainty about whether and how their work matters to God. Good news: All work matters to God, because all work reflects some aspect of the character of God. God created the world so that it runs best when it mirrors Him, and we ourselves find the most fulfillment when we recognize God behind our labor. John Van Sloten offers a fascinating and innovative reflection on vocation: Our work is a parable of God; as we work, we are icons of grace. www.everyjobaparable.com


NavPress - Resurrecting ReligionResurrecting Religion: Finding Our Way Back to the Good News (Greg Paul)

There’s lots of bad religion out there. But the answer isn’t no religion, it’s true religion: living out—publicly and communally—what we say we believe privately and individually. True religion puts flesh on the bones of faith. Resurrecting Religion offers an inspiring, stretching vision for finding our way back to the good news of our faith. At a time when most people practice their faith in the extremes—either extremely publicly, with a legalistic, combative tone that creates division, or extremely privately, to the point that our faith becomes functionally irrelevant—award-winning author Greg Paul offers a vision for religion that is good for us and good for the world. www.resurrectingreligion.com
