ANOTHER 60 MINUTES OF WISDOM Prepares for Book Launch on October 8

Top-selling Author and Pastor Dr. Derek Grier Delivers More Insight Into Life’s Practical Truths



Dumfries, VA – Tomorrow, October 8, Dr. Derek Grier will debut his much anticipated next book, Another 60 Minutes of Wisdom.  Published through WestBow Press, topics such as marriage, friendship and spiritual growth are examined under the lens of scripture in brief, easy to digest segments that have life-changing power.

As founder and senior pastor of Grace Church in Dumfries, VA, Dr. Grier has been the leader of a congregation, which has grown from 12 people meeting in a local high school to being named one of Outreach Magazine’s 100 Fastest Growing Churches in America. Nationally known as a leader on engaging culture, Grier’s uncompromising commitment to preaching and teaching the gospel has brought him the respect of political leaders, educators and theologians alike.

Another 60 Minutes of Wisdom was born out of his Ministry Minute broadcasts on TV and Radio.  Here he offers relevant and Bible-based insights in short, concise segments.  Combining verses of scripture, real-life anecdotes, witty teachings and relatable quotes from notable people, these sixty memorable readings will inspire readers to strive to live more godly, purposeful lives.

“Each 60-second vignette took me hours to write and a lifetime to learn,” explains Dr. Grier.  “The goal in each is to boil down the truths of scripture to their essential elements and help people capture the hidden keys to success and significance in a quick but deeply meaningful way.”
