Client Gwen Toliver publishes Seed Sowers

Seed Sowers: Gospel-Planting AdventuresI’m pleased to share that WestBow Press has published client Gwen Toliver’s book, Seed Sowers: Gospel-Planting Adventures. I provided a copyedit for Gwen’s project and was thrilled to hear she had a publisher in mind. Congratulations, Gwen!

Below is a summary and other info about the book.

From the hot, steamy jungles of Indonesia to the highest mountain passes in the Andes of Peru, Seed Sowers: Gospel-Planting Adventures takes you on an unforgettable adventure around the world.

Hang on to your hats! Seed Sowers tells twenty one true tales of modern-day missionaries whose lives were anything but boring.

Crazed wildcats, angry witch doctors, heart-pounding jungle rides down white-water rapids, terrifying headhunters and cannibals, and frightening first contacts with unknown tribes—each story bears testimony to the brave missionaries that God calls to serve.

Each one of them is a seed sower—planting the seeds of God’s Word in the lives of people around the world waiting for Scripture in the language of their heart.

“I can’t wait for you to read the stories in this book! They are the best! These are stories of ‘real, normal, everyday people’ who stepped out in faith to do what God called them to do and have done extraordinary things!”

—from the foreword by Gracia Burnham, missionary, speaker and author of In the Presence of My Enemies
