Bible teacher, Speech-Language Pathologist, and #1 Amazon.com Bestselling author Rodney Boyd is thrilled to unveil his latest book, Written That You May Believe: 21 Ruminations on the Gospel of John, which released on Wednesday, July 6, 2018 from WordCrafts Press. “It takes 21 days to break a bad habit, and 21 days for a new habit to begin to feel natural,” Boyd muses. “The bad habits are to doubt and not believe, the new habits are to believe and have faith. There just happen to be 21 chapters in the Gospel of John. Coincidence? I don’t think so.”
Each of the four Gospels tells the story of the life of Jesus Christ. But there is something uniquely different about John’s Gospel. For one thing, the “Disciple whom Jesus loved,” claimed to testify as an eyewitness of these events, and even goes so far as to declare, “…and we know that his testimony is true.” Boyd examines the 21 chapters of the Gospel of John with the goal that the reader will be enlightened, inspired, and encouraged to believe!.
“I kept seeing the divine connection between the Creator and His human creation,” Boyd muses. “As a speech-language pathologist, I realize that we were created for the purpose of communicating with each other, and as a follower of Jesus Christ I believe we were also created to communicate with our Creator. Ultimately, I want to communicate to people that we are not just cosmic accidents, but that we are fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving Creator, who want to have a relationship with us, who wants us to believe, to have faith. My latest book, Written That You May Believe pairs 21 chapters from the Gospel of John with 21 gleanings/ruminations about something to believe (trust in, cling to, rely on, adhere to).”
Written That You May Believe, Boyd’s eighth book, is already generating a buzz in the market place, climbing to #18 on Amazon.com’s Hot New Releases Chart in the Jesus, the Gospels & Acts category. It also impacted the online retailer’s Hot New Releases charts in the Christian Meditation Worship & Devotions category (#33) and the Christian Devotionals category (#93). It follows on the heels of his #1 bestselling Amazon.com release, Pro-Verb Ponderings: 31 Ruminations on Positive Action, which topped the online behemoth’s prestigious Hot New Releases chart in the Old Testament Meditations category, and also debuted at #11 on both the Top 100 Christian Old Testament Meditations and Top 100 Judaism Hebrew Bible Meditations categories.
