New book provides insight into the decisions young women may face

Fall in love with Xulon Press author Sonya M. Buchanan's Saved by Grace ($14.99, paperback, ISBN # 9781607919711; $22.99, hardcover, ISBN # 9781607919728), a heart-wrenching tale about passion, love, trust, relationships, and self-discovery. This book unveils the experiences of a beautiful, young, and gifted ingénue named SunnyFaith Christenson, whose life is irreversibly changed because of the choices she makes. Find out how this intellectually bright, driven, and professionally astute sorority girl who seemingly has it all manages to fumble her way through young adulthood, yet miraculously regroups, tackles her challenges, and transforms before self-destructing.

Says Buchanan, "My faithful prayer is that Saved by Grace will serve as a transformative tool in the lives of adolescent girls and young women growing into adulthood and independence. I trust that readers grasp the desired takeaway: 'Only in Jesus Christ am I strong and at my very best; to love Jesus Christ and myself first is okay; in fact, my purpose, sustained life, happiness, and overall well-being depend on it!'"

A self-described "student of life," Buchanan watched for years as people both close and distant to her nearly self-destructed by trying to fit in to a mold that might have been different from their Christian upbringing. Additionally, she witnessed as several women were persistently mistreated by their boyfriends, husbands, or friends because they believed they could save them, help them, or change them--not realizing that they might be chipping away at their own well-being. As a result, she designed Saved by Grace to be an illustrative tool to empower these adolescent girls and young women to hold on to Jesus Christ and choose themselves first.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world's largest Christian publisher, with more than 7,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Saved by Grace through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. Saved by Grace is available for purchase online through,, and
