WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group and Westar Media Group are producing and distributing a 30-minute radio special featuring New York Times bestselling author and popular speaker Liz Curtis Higgs and her latest book The Women of Christmas: Experience the Season Afresh with Elizabeth, Mary and Anna .

 Hundreds of Christian radio stations around the country have signed up to air the 30-minute special or a series of 60-second vignettes, which offer a closer look at the three vital women in the story of the Christ child’s birth. Higgs, who is best known for her million-selling Bad Girls of the Bible, along with radio host Chris Fabry discuss a trio of the Bible’s good girls, Elizabeth, Mary and Anna, and why God chose them to fulfill his promise of a Messiah.

 “Christmas is so much more than a holiday,” says Higgs. “So much more than buying and wrapping and cooking and eating and trimming with tinsel and mailing out cards. It’s a season for reflection, for preparation and renewal. This is a perfect time to put aside our shopping lists and reach for our Bibles, where the story of the Christ child awaits us.”

About Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs
Ten of the Bible’s best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of Bad Girls of the Bible with situations that sound oh-so-familiar.

Eve had food issues. Potiphar’s Wife and Delilah had man trouble. Lot’s Wife and Michal couldn’t let go of the past, Sapphira couldn’t let go of money, and Jezebel couldn’t let go of anything. Yet the Woman at the Well had her thirst quenched at last, while Rahab and the Sinful Woman left their sordid histories behind.
           
Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!

NEWS: Three WaterBrook Multnomah Titles Named Finalists for Christian Retailing’s BEST Awards


Three WaterBrook Multnomah Titles Named Finalists for

Christian Retailing’s BEST Awards

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April  2013) – WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is proud to be recently honored by Christian Retailing’s naming three of its titles as finalists for Christian Retailing’s annual BEST Awards.

Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown (May 2012/WaterBrook Press), by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling and award-winning author Eric Blehm, was nominated in the Auto/Biography category. This heartrending and inspiring story of Naval Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Adam Brown, who overcame tremendous odds in his rise to the top tier of the U.S. military: SEAL Team Six, appeared on The New York Times Bestseller list for 17 weeks and will release in paperback on May 21st.

The Girl’s Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World (July 2012/WaterBrook Press), by New York Times and CBA bestselling and award-winning author Liz Curtis Higgs, was nominated in Nonfiction: Women’s category. This novel approach to Bible study invites readers to step through the portal of time and experience the day-to-day lives of Ruth and Naomi, gleaning from their rags-to-riches story the assurance that God is at work to redeem each loss and disappointment. Liz is the author of nearly 30 books, with more than 3 million copies in print.

Wildflowers from Winter (May 2012/WaterBrook Press), by debut novelist Katie Ganshert, was nominated in the Fiction: Contemporary Romance category. The book follows Bethany Quinn as her put-together world suddenly falls apart, forcing her to confront loss, estranged friendships, family secrets and spiritual disillusionment. The promise of this book is that out of the darkest winters of our lives, hope and life can be renewed. Katie Ganshert was born and raised in the Midwest, where she writes stories about finding faith and falling in love.

Those qualified to vote in the awards this year judged the nominations on their impact, including their ability to evoke emotion and speak to people’s hearts; open people’s minds to different ways of thinking; and encourage and affirm Christian living. Winners of the Christian Retailing’s Best awards—formerly known as the Retailers Choice Awards—will be presented at the International Christian Retail Show in St. Louis in June.
