New Hope Publishers, in partnership with National Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU), is pleased to announce a special book-signing event with author Grace Thornton. Thornton’s newest book, Unshakable Pursuit, is a thirty-day devotional that will support WMU ministry efforts over the next two years.

The event will be held Tuesday, May 22, at the National WMU building at 100 Missionary Ridge, Birmingham, Alabama, from 2:30 until 4:30. Guests are invited to hear a short reading and purchase books to be signed. Afternoon tea will be served.

“Grace tells compelling stories that captivate the hearts of readers. As she described sleeping on a top bunk of a railcar, I could feel the gentle sway of moving along the track. I experienced desperate depths of despair and immeasurable heights of joy as she introduced me to character after character. All the while, I was being drawn closer to His side and renewing my commitment to His mission.” —Sandy Wisdom-Martin, executive director, National Woman’s Missionary Union

Unshakable Pursuit will quicken your heart to see God’s steadfast pursuit of His people. In her award-winning journalistic style, Grace shares stories from around the world as she calls you to engage the eternal momentum coursing through your veins. She reminds us that God is tapping our shoulders and asking us to chase Him back with everything we’ve got. This devotional compels us to live fully engaged in His story—and share it with others. View book trailer.
