Santa Barbara, California (PRWEB) April 27, 2013
Noah benShea has just partnered with Amazon.com in the beginning of April to publish Jacob the Baker, Jacob's Journey and Jacob's Ladder with both print on demand and ebook versions. Noah benShea is the international best selling author of 23 books translated into 18 languages and embraced by millions around the world. Jacob the Baker is the International Best Selling trilogy series and timeless story about a man whose humble life and profound wisdom are a source of both inspiration and reflection to those around him. Eighteen years in the writing, this deceptively simple book kindles the human spirit in the manner of a modern classic. Jacob's gentle message invites each of us to witness that "a miracle is often the willingness to see the common in an uncommon way."
Jacob is a poor but pious figure who rises anonymously before dawn to light the ovens in the town bakery. As the ovens are warming and the first dough rising Jacob turns inward, scribbling notes to himself -- thoughts and observations ringing with the clarity of a soul unencumbered by "the weight of its own importance."
“I am honored to partner with Amazon.com in bringing the Jacob the Baker series to today’s technology with eBooks as well as new versions of print for those that appreciate a bound book. As Jacob is known to have said in the books, what grows, never grows old, and I am overjoyed for the Jacob the Baker series to grow,” says Noah benShea.
These three books Jacob the Baker, Jacob’s Journey and Jacob’s Ladder, can be read alone or together as a series. The gentle wisdom of Jacob is reflected throughout the series and is meant to be cherished, shared and read again and again. Jacob the Baker is a treasury of answers in the form of brief stories and parables, told by a baker who is a poet of truth and kindness.
