When I’m taking any book through the stages of publication, I’m always asking myself, What’s the message? I want to know how the author is telling its intended readers even just a simple, small but profound insight about transforming life in today’s world.

A book can have a catchy title, a clever way to approach a subject, or an author that’s so interesting and inspiring you just have to find out more. It can even be organized and well written, bringing its prose to life in a way that charms your socks off. But whether it’s an emotion-packed memoir, a sweeping historical novel, or a smart self-help book backed by research, if the book is weak on its message, then I’d rather not publish it—not yet anyway.

One of the books that I’ve been working on behind the scenes, A Field Guide to God, by Patty Kirk, candidly tells readers of the author’s journey of rediscovering the presence of God. What’s special about Kirk is her way of asking wonderfully simple questions, and approaching the walk of faith as if for the first time.

From new ways of reading the Bible and experiencing prayer, to remembering how we’ve experienced God in our past and opening ourselves to indirect messages in everyday life, Kirk offers today’s seekers hope that God is real. She concludes each chapter with straightforward suggestions that lead you to a concrete experience of God.

Personally, I love this topic. I desperately need to rediscover God with new eyes almost every day if I’m to stay grounded and compassionate. And yet, there’s more to Kirk’s book, due out early next year, than learning from her journey and trying out some of her nifty ideas.

There’s a message in it that says… Well, I’m not going to give it completely away, but let me tell you that it’s a message that will inspire you to strike out on your own, be inspired, and discover what’s sacred for your life, your world, right now.
