Gary Miller Has Book Signing Dec. 15 At Lifeway Christian Bookstore

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Gary Miller, a resident of Chattanooga, will be available to sign copies of his book, Sing to the Lord a New Song: Transforming Life through Scripture, on Saturday, Dec. 15, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.  The signing will be held at Lifeway Christian Bookstore, 5591 Highway 153 in Hixson. 

Faced with a diagnosis of progressive multiple sclerosis, Mr. Miller found he needed more from his Bible studies. During Mr. Miller's in-depth study of God's promises, God revealed to him that a fulfilling life lies in praising the Lord. 

This experience developed into the study of Psalms and the New Testament in Sing to the Lord a New Song: Transforming Life through Scripture. The book will describe how to learn to praise God for who He is and give Him thanks for what He has done. Recapture the excitement of faith and celebrate who you are in Christ as you open your Bible and prepare your heart to Sing to the Lord a New Song in this interactive devotional, officials said.
