New Xulon Title Shows God's Power through Ordinary People

Barckholtz pens book to encourage believers to trust in the Lord's faithfulness

MAITLAND, Fla., May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Steve Barckholtz's new book, THE Hero of Faithfulness: God's Attributes on Display in Hebrews 11 ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-62509-883-2; $7.49, e-book, 978-1-62509-884-9) approaches Hebrews 11 from a new perspective. According to the author, the traditional view of Hebrews 11 lists the Old Testament patriarch as some kind of 'super heroes' in a 'Hall of Fame of Faith'—a faith so extraordinary that regular people like us can never attain it. Instead, this book demonstrates how the ordinary and very human actions of God's people were able to bring about extraordinary results because of His faithfulness to them.


"In simple and easy-to-read language, 'THE Hero of Faithfulness' helps Christ-followers understand God loves them and He is faithfully present with them at all times to help them grow in faith as they live through the events of their daily lives," states the author. "This understanding of God's faithfulness comes against the backdrop of learning how the men and women whose lives are detailed in Hebrews 11 lived in the very same embrace of God's love and faithfulness."

Of his expertise, the author expresses: "As a lifelong Christian, educated in Christian schools and seminary, I entered the ministry thinking I had all the answers. Very quickly, I learned I didn't even know the questions… especially the real and relevant questions people were asking today. After several years, I also realized I had another problem …I was not reading God's Word for my personal faith. The combination of being trained to 'know-IT-all' and not even reading 'IT' at all led me on a journey to read the Bible for personal growth, while allowing the Holy Spirit to generate questions from the text. This has resulted in an approach to the Bible that no longer fears questions, even if the answers are difficult or hard."
