Within the pages of Darlena Austin’s new book, A Place called Intimacy ($8.99, paperback, 978-1-62230-059-4; $4.49, e-book, 978-1-62230-060-0) readers will discover an illustration of how important it is to obtain intimacy with Jesus. Readers will be inspired to take their relationship with Jesus to another level and will want to know Him in His fullness.

“I would like for the reader to become the central character in this love story,” states the author. “I want the reader to desire intimacy with Jesus and seek to know the depth and height of His love. Many speak of Jesus as the One who heals, provides, rescues, and protects, and He does! But He does all these things, and more, because He loves us. This story will cause the reader to see Jesus as a lover, who desires intimacy with the one He loves.”

Darlena Austin had always dreamt of meeting her real-life prince charming. The author expounds, “When I became a Christian I realized that I am living a love story in which I have been pursued by the Prince of all princes. It has been His love and pursuit of me that have caused me to love Him, myself, and others.” Darlena Austin is an arts enthusiast, social worker, drama director, and writer who enjoys the presence of God. Darlena, her husband, James, and their two children reside in the Washington, DC area.
