Christmas Time Heralded by 'Faces of Truth' Readers Everywhere
Many right now are struggling to find that perfect gift for the family member who has "everything!" Or maybe some are thinking, "how do I give a meaningful Christmas gift that will inspire greatness in a new generation?"
In the new hard cover book, "Faces of Truth", readers will be introduced to some of the greatest leaders of human history and learn that their accomplishments were not solely a function of willpower, education, and personal character, but more accurately a reflection of their humility and willingness to allow God to use them.
Artist Doug Latta spent hundreds of hours researching the autographs and painstakingly hand painted each portrait with such care and accurateness down to the costumes. His wife Norma took hours researching the stories to really find the truth behind each of the 101 faces in this book. Thus "Faces of Truth" was created.
Young and old alike will enjoy turning the pages as history becomes alive with each true story.
Packaged for a new generation, these timeless tales of heroism and faith will inspire, educate, and motivate readers to greatness themselves! "This is a history book that you'll want to pass down to generations," said one recent reader.
"It is always inspiring to read of God’s handiwork in the lives of others. 'Faces of Truth', by Doug and Norma Latta, is an interesting compilation that I believe will bless all who read it."
— Mark Rutland, Ph.D. — President, Oral Roberts University

About Doug and Norma Latta
Early in life Doug was inspired to become an artist by his grandfather, Lyman C. Powell, a forty-year veteran greeting-card designer for the Gibson Greeting Card Company. His admiration for Granddad Powell’s sensitive renderings in nature and portraiture began as a small spark that grew brighter over the years. After a tour of duty in the army, Doug majored in commercial art in college, resulting in a university teaching career that lasted forty years, during which his original spark of interest and skill in art matured into a flaming passion. Twenty years ago he accepted the challenges of directing this passion into the creation of this book. Norma’s inspiration as a writer grew out of her love for her mother’s poetry, written throughout her long life. Having an older brother who is a writer played a major role in her own development as well. Recently her family was influential in the publication of a diary written by her grandfather, who had been a prisoner in the Civil War. The diary is part of the North Carolina Office of Archives and History.
They both have published their artwork and have won prizes in juried art shows. Their work is represented in private collections throughout the South and Southwest. Most recently a portrait that Doug created for David Barton’s Wallbuilders ministry appeared on the Glenn Beck television program. The portrait chronicled the moment that the Reverend John Muhlenburg showed his congregation a colonel’s army uniform under his clerical robes as his sermon invited them to join him in the revolutionary fight for liberty.
