Jennifer Kennedy Dean’s final written work releases with New Hope Publishers

BIRMINGHAM:  Iron Stream Media announces the release of Prized: Experience the Tender Love of the Savior (New Hope Publishers / September 9, 2019 / ISBN: 978-1-56309-247-3/ $12.99), the final written work by Jennifer Kennedy Dean.

If Jesus had come to earth as the most powerful earthly king, it would have been an unfathomable, humbling step downward. But He came to earth as a servant. On purpose. By choice. Why would He do that? What does He gain? What was the “joy set before Him” (Hebrews 12:2)? What did He have after the Cross that He didn’t have before the Cross? What did the Cross gain for Him? He gained you and me. Nothing else. Just us.

A thirty-day devotional, Prized paints a beautiful picture of the kindness and gentleness of Jesus. Pointing to both Old and New Testament passages, be encouraged as you see you were loved from the beginning. Christ came for you. You are His beloved. You are His prized possession. You were worth the price.
