Congregation gives Choose! book to visitors on Friends Day

Here's another novel idea for sharing the Choose! book — Friends Day!

Here's another novel idea for sharing the Choose! book — Friends Day!

choosefrontcoverpInspired by the idea of a sister who bought a whole box of Choose! books for a ladies day, a congregation in Arkansas bought a box to hand out to visitors on their Friends Day.

With a deep discount for the purchase of a box, this is a very economical option, and one that encourages people to do the will of God and make right decisions in life.

The book is an item that people will not throw away. It will remind them of your event and of the family of God who gave it, serving as a testimony for years to come.

Choose! is printed on cream paper with dark brown ink, giving it a warm feel just right for the powerful principles revealed in the book.

Contact Barbara Ann and ask about the special rate for a large quantity to make your event even more special.

Call (901) 517-7274 for a fast order. Or email her at ba@oliver.net.

A novel idea: giving a book for all the participants of a special event. We make it possible with a huge discount!

choosefrontcoverpA sister in Christ in Texas bought 112 copies of the book Choose! as a gift for the participants in her congregation’s ladies day program.

That’s a whole box of books! We gave her a special rate that made it especially attractive.

Some study groups and Bible classes use this 13-chapter book with questions. But this is a novel idea, to present the book as a gift for a special program.

Contact Barbara Ann and ask about the special rate for a large quantity to make your event even more special.

World’s most read books

Are there any surprises in this list?

Are there any surprises in this list?

most-read-books

The source of the infogram did not say where the data came from. I found it strange that the Quran was not included, or other books of the world’s major religions. Be that as it may, the list makes for an interesting insight into our times.

We’re not surprised by the first most read book, the Bible. It is by far the most translated, most printed, most distributed of all. A tragedy that it is not the most heeded and lived.

Our mission at Forthright Press is to call people to that book as God’s revelation of what he has done in Christ to bring us to himself.

Site subject to multiple attacks; FHU booth

Our head is still above water.

Our head is still above water.

It appears we’ve been the subject of sustained attacks to the website. Best we can tell, the weakness has come through the market plugin we’ve used. That has been disabled. We’re in the search for an option that will serve everyone well. In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience.

If you go to the Freed-Hardeman University Lectureship, be sure to stop by and visit Barbara Anne at the Forthright Press stand in the exhibit area.

Today a reader on the Forthright Magazine site was overly generous with praise:

We’re grateful for the good and faithful writers on the magazine site, as well as our other sites.Read More

Forthright Magazine — Where it all started, and now with daily articles on Biblical and Christian topics by an amazing group of columnists.

Site changes ahead, necessarily

A plugin puts the site at risk, so we look to change things.

A plugin puts the site at risk, so we look to change things.

plug in to booksThe FPress website has been down for several days, apparently from hacking, again. The estore plugin we’re using is a strong suspect for having opened a hole in the security. So we’re going to replace it. More work to come.

What direction we’ll take with the site is uncertain, but we’ll work to make sure it’s a good option for you.

We take this opportunity also to pray that this year will be a blessed one in every way, and especially for doing the will of God.

Wishes, prayers, and poems of a joyful and meaningful Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving DayOn behalf of the Forthright/GoSpeak team, we pray for our American friends and family in Christ a joyful Thanksgiving Day. Join us in this prayer. We share with you these Thanksgiving thoughts, Blessings in Disguise, by Paula Harrington, fresh today, as well as one of our own from back in 2003, Giving Thanks, on an old site.

For historical interest, in part, and still valid is the Thanksgiving prayer we offered four years ago, shortly after the presidential elections of 2008.Read More
