Book Shelf of BDPA Authors

This will be a recurring post sharing information on BDPA members that have authored books. BDPA members come from a diverse background. As such, we should not be surprised to see our members writing fiction and non-fiction books on a wide variety of topics.

'This Far by Faith: How to Put God First in Everyday Living' by Linnie Frank Bailey and the late Andria Hall -
Published by WaterBrook Press; Reprint edition (September 19, 2000), 272 pages. Linnie is past president of BDPA Washington DC chapter and founder of the BDPA Inland Empire chapter.
"If your faith is the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." - Matthew 17:20
A clarion call for those who want to have God in their lives every day and not just on Sundays, 'This Far by Faith' offers clear-sighted, friendly advice that will guide readers gently into the future. Bailey and Hall share the "Faith Formula" they have developed in their work together, which they use in their own lives to conquer daily obstacles.

Through Scripture, original prayers and affirmations, and plain old-fashioned "straight talk," the authors tackle issues ranging from friendship, family, love, marriage, child-rearing, and work, all while underscoring the importance of faith and perseverance as a way of maintaining balance in today's busy world. In chapters such as "What You Won't Do for Love," "Keeping the Home Fires Burning," "A House Is Not a Home," "Jobs, Career, and Callings," and "Give Me That Old Time Religion," Bailey and Hall discuss ways to "live in the light."

Please let us know if there are other current or former BDPA members who have published a book. We would love to add them to this recurring blog post.

Do you have any books that you recommend for BDPA members? What are you reading now?
