For a Wise and Glorious Purpose
Clearfield, UT (Vocus) March 13, 2010
Xlibris, the leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of For a Wise and Glorious Purpose, a new book about abuse and survival, authored by Marylyn Easter.
"For a Wise and Glorious Purpose" is a record of the rich experiences the author had that led her to know Jesus Christ. It relates Easter's exploits as she lived through and overcame the soul wrenching darkness of that abuse. It also reveals the story of the author's brother as he also suffered abuse, and his revelations complement Easter's accounts very well. Through their combined testimonies, readers will learn precisely why most abuse happens, who does it, how victims often deal with it in both negative and positive ways, what needs to be done to discourage or bring abuse out into the open to help stop it one family at a time, and much, much more. Last but not least, this book also examines the author's acceptance of Christianity and how it helped her overcome and survive. The message of the text is clear: abuse victims can indeed survive their tragedies, accept faith and be able to move forward to live healthy and fulfilling lives if they choose to.
With its detailed research and accounts, For a Wise and Glorious Purpose is easily the most comprehensive book on abuse that readers can find today. Readers who wish to order a copy are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com, call (888) 795-4274 or send an email to orders(at)xlibris(dot)com today.
