Authors Sheila And H.L. Robertson To Have Book Signing Event March 2

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Authors Sheila And H.L. Robertson will have a book signing event all day on March 2 at Abbas House At Central Baptist, 5208 Hixson Pike, Hixson.

Mr. Robertson, a resident of Lynchburg, Tn., will be available to sign copies of his book, Into His Presence.

Into His Presence is a fresh and unique view of the Lord's Prayer. It is a phrase-by-phrase look at the most often repeated words ever spoken on this planet, combined with a step-by-step walk through of the Old Testament Tabernacle. Each phrase resonates with a part of the Old Testament worship process, showing that Jesus wasn't just teaching His followers a prayer to repeat but that He was giving them a pathway to the intimate presence of His Father. His Jewish followers would have been closely acquainted with this type of worship and, as with so many of Jesus’s teachings, would have understood these words on a far deeper level as most modern Christians would recognize. This book builds a framework of understanding for the reader, first of the tabernacle worship system and then each phrase of the Lord's Prayer.

Also included in each chapter is a prayer of "entering in" for that step in the journey.

Ms. Robertson, also a resident of Lynchburg, will be available to sign copies of her book, Fairhaven Forest.

Lost in the woods after dark, kittens Fuzz and Spatz don't know which way to turn to get back to their big white house. Many of the animals that live in the woods try to give them directions, but the kittens don't listen very well.

Cold, hungry, and scared, they wait out the long, dark night. Soon they realize that they would already be home if they had just listened to older and wiser animals.

Come join Fuzz & Spatz as they learn a valuable lesson on their big adventure.
