Top Christian Authors to Watch in 2014

posted on

It’s a new year and 2014 is already proving to be a great one for books! Vyrso.com recently released their list of “Top 15 Authors to Watch in 2014” and Ambassador International is thrilled to report that three of our authors are on the list! Here’s what Vyrso has to say: “Honestly, we couldn’t be more excited about the talent coming out this year. From names you’ve probably never heard before (but will soon), to already-burgeoning stars, this list represents our top 15 picks (in no particular order) of authors to watch in 2014.” To see the full list of 15 authors visit blog.vyrso.com. Here are the three Ambassador authors from the list:

 

An Infinite Journey5. Dr. Andrew Davis

Although not a household name quite yet, Dr. Davis was recently  given the honor of speaking alongside some big-name Christian authors at the CrossCon conference, including John Piper, David Platt, David Sitton, and others. His first book, An Infinite Journey, has already received a glowing review from D. A. Carson and is expected to receive even more praise once it’s released January 10.

 

7. David SittonReckless Abandon

After publishing Reckless Abandon and founding an organization that sends missionary teams to plant churches across the globe, Sitton has even bigger plans for global outreach in 2014. He has two new books slated to come out this year: a biography on his late mentor, Joe Cannon, a global missionary, followed by Ekballo—a book about being called to missions work and sharing God’s good news with the world.

 

Love Into Light14. Peter Hubbard

Love Into Light: The Gospel, the Homosexual and the Church was one of Vyrso’s bestselling books of 2013 and was also just listed in Tim Challies’ Top Books of 2013. Even though this was Hubbard’s first major book release, he wasn’t afraid to tackle one of the church’s most controversial topics—homosexuality— with both passion and care. At the cusp of 2014, this book is still gaining traction and is getting the author fired up for a followup title.

New Book Gives Pathway to Christian Maturity

An Infinite JourneyDr. Andrew Davis guides readers through radical transformation

For immediate release: Every Christian embarks on two journeys: The external journey of sharing Christ with the world and the internal journey of personal salvation from sanctification into glorification. In his new book An Infinite Journey: Growing Towards Christlikeness, (Ambassador International; January 2014; $19.99, paperback) Dr. Andrew Davis provides a road map for the internal journey, laying out how we are to grow in four major areas: knowledge, faith, character and action. “The modern evangelical movement has been far more concerned about evangelism than about discipleship,” writes Davis. “It should be unsettling when there is so little spiritual maturity, so little sacrifice for Christ, so little hunger and thirst for righteousness, so little suffering for his glory.”

Packed with informative illustrations and relevant scripture, An Infinite Journey takes readers through an in depth look at what kind of people we should be, as described in scripture. Dr. Davis explains the radical transformation that happens through sanctification in five specific areas of character:

1. Affection: What you love and what you hate

2. Desire: What you seek

3. Will: What you choose and what you reject

4. Thought: What you think

5. Emotion: What you feel

Dr. Davis says it shouldn’t be surprising that the church is suffering from such “profound spiritual immaturity.” He believes the church needs focus on both infinite journeys– internal and external– by reclaiming the Bible and focusing on the power of the Holy Spirit. “It is impossible for the Church to make progress externally to the ends of the earth if there are no Christians mature enough to pay the price to go as missionaries and martyrs,” he says. “And it is impossible to make genuine progress in sanctification if the people only read good Christian books and stay in classrooms, but refuse to get out in the world as witnesses.”

About the Author: Dr. Andrew Davis has been Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church (FBC), Durham, NC, since 1998. He came to faith in Christ his junior year in college. In 1984, he graduated with a BSME from MIT, and worked for ten years as a mechanical engineer. Davis received his Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 1990 and his PhD in Church History from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1998.
