Good News - Crossway Books: A Publisher Worth Knowing

Good News - Crossway Books, a publisher you may already know about, is worth a quick look-see. Referred by some as the "House Frank Built," alluding to Frank Peretti, who had a bestseller published there. See below a few of their bestsellers now. Lots of John Piper. See their site for more. A few links might show up here leading to Amazon.com.

Why Good News - Crossway Books? I live near their offices, and know a few people who have worked there over the years. An unassuming, modest building, in a neighborhood just east of Wheaton College, Crossway's impact is far stronger than their facilities might indicate.

You Are Special - Max Lucado, Sergio Martinez (Illustrator)

Parents will appreciate the message this story sends to kids: that regardless of what the world thinks, they are precious in God's sight.
