BATTLE CREEK, Mich. – Written by a man who’s read the Bible from cover to cover and worked to discover its meaning, the new book “From Grace to Salvation” (published by Abbott Press) is a testimonial to belief and an attempt to make the story of Jesus more accessible to readers.

“Today there are people who have turned from God not because they don’t believe in him,” author Douglas Beatty writes, “but because they just don’t understand his words. I hope this book will change their hearts.”

An excerpt from “From Grace to Salvation”:

“From generation to generation the word had been passed down that a Messiah was coming to rule over them forever, and ever.
In this book we will read how God brought two people together to fulfill his promise to the Prophet’s, to send a Messiah to change the hearts of man, and for man to be forgiven of his sins, forever.
Remember this as you go through life. With God nothing shall be impossible!”

Beatty was inspired to write “From Grace to Salvation” by his own experiences. “As a younger person, as with many I too put aside the Bible for lack of understanding. A few years back I picked up the Bible again. I still had a hard time with the terms, so I put it in a way that I could understand it and still get the true meaning that God intended.”

Available in both paperback and electronic versions, “From Grace to Salvation” is available now at major online booksellers and
