As we draw near to the 10th anniversary of this tragic day in America’s history, P&R wants to know what you think of it all as you look back and recall the many emotions of that day.
A booklet was written shortly after the events of 9/11 that addressed some of the deeper questions that are brought to the surface during life-changing events such as these: Where Was God On September 11? by John Blanchard (which can be found at several retailers).
Where were you when it happened? What were your initial thoughts and reactions? Ten years later, how do you think and feel about it all? What does 9/11 mean for you?
Take a few moments to sit and think about some of these questions and let us know your thoughts regarding this day and what it means to you.
A FINAL THOUGHT: the scripture verse below from Lamentations offers us hope and encouragement through times such as these. In Christ Jesus, we have hope even in the darkest of times! His love is unfailing and he is faithful in all things. Praise God!
I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Q & A with Bob Kellemen
As part of our BCC vision, we want to help you to get to know gifted Christian authors and their books. This week we’re highlighting Bob Kellemen as he shares about his new book, Equipping Counselors for Your Church.
BCC: “Bob, what’s the big idea behind Equipping Counselors for Your Church? What would you like readers to take away from the book?”
BK: “I had two assumptions as I wrote the book. First, pastors, counselors, and educators are passionate about equipping God’s people for every-member ministry as biblical counselors. Second, they are tired of seeing great effort expended on ‘programs’ that don’t launch, don’t last, or don’t result in leaving a legacy of loving leaders. So am I. (Read More)
DR. ROBERT W. KELLEMEN, in his three pastoral ministries, in his seminary teaching, and through RPM Ministries, has equipped hundreds of people as biblical counselors and spiritual friends. Bob is the Executive Director of the Biblical Counseling Coalition
and the Executive Director of the Center for Church Equipping at the Association for Biblical Counselors.

The Adventures in the American Revolution series (short-listed for the Crown Book Awards), follows the life of Annie Henry, daughter of Patrick Henry, and gives young adults an exciting look at life during America’s War of Independence.
Susan Olasky co-founded and chaired the Austin Crisis Pregnancy Center in Austin, Texas. She is the book review editor and a senior writer for WORLD magazine.
“As she grows from a young girl to a teenager, Annie Henry’s character remains genuine in the six-year span captured so beautifully by Susan Olasky in her American Revolution series . . . At times her faith is tested, but in the process she learns to trust in God anew.”—Sandra Morrow, Awards Director, Triple Crown Award
Also available is the complete four-book series in a prepackaged set
Growing Up Christian
Many teens are active in church youth programs, yet drop out of church later in life and never return. Other young adults rest on the merits of their parents’ faith without ever experiencing their own relationship with Jesus Christ. In this book the authors seek to help teenagers who have grown up in Christian homes by reminding them of the blessings of growing up in a Christian home, warning them of some of the dangers they face, providing practical suggestions for avoiding these dangers, and urging them to think and live in a way that pleases God.
“This book is one that can shake teenagers and parents out of a false sense of safety and ignite a much-needed spiritual passion”—Tedd Tripp
