Book Baby is coming!
Inward Apocalypse releases everywhere August 15th!!
In less than four weeks, Inward Apocalypse: Uncovering a Faith for the Common Good will be available everywhere books are sold.
But just for you all, my newletter subscribers, I’ll tell you that you can already get it ;-). It’s up on Amazon full-price and you can get it from my publisher directly for half price for a limited time! All you have to do is add it to your cart and then click the coupon code button and add the code “commongood” (all one word like a hashtag).
By August 15th, the official launch date, you’ll also be able to order it through your favorite independant bookseller or get a kindle or other ebook edition as well. It just takes time for everything to populate everywhere.
On August 15th, I’m having a virtual party to celebrate the launch of my book. I’ll be doing a reading, taking questions, giving away copies of the book, and my talented friend Kaitlin whose poetry appears in the book will be performing some of the pieces in the book.
It’ll be fun; it’ll be profound; and most likely, it’ll be slightly irreverent.
Register here if you want to be in the room where it happens: http://bit.ly/IALaunchParty
Otherwise you can watch via my Facebook page: http://Facebook.com/aehowardwrites and I’ll be taking questions and including viewers on there in the giveaways as well!
So mark your calendars and join us!
What people are saying about Inward Apocalypse:
Anna Howard's Inward Apocalypse is a gift to all who long for faith with power to ground us in these shifting times. With clarity, wit and surprising insight, Howard drops gems as she leads readers through apocalypse to the common good. —Lisa Sharon Harper is author of critically acclaimed, The Very Good Gospel and Fortune: How Race Broke My Family And The World--And How To Repair It All
Anna Elisabeth Howard’s Inward Apocalypse is smart, witty, and captivating. I could not put it down. Her thinking and writing are as solid as can be, compelling us to pilgrimage alongside her as she confronts the toxic Christian subculture and theology in which many are steeped. Howard raises thought provoking questions and challenges American Christians who seek to follow the Jesus of the gospels and not the Jesus of our national imagination. I simply cannot wait to read more from Howard. —Marlena Graves, Author of The Way Up Is Down: Becoming Yourself by Forgetting Yourself
Inward Apocalypse is a timely invitation to readers to develop their faith for the common good. The book’s refreshing honesty—even about the growing pains of faith—allows readers to rest in the well-earned wisdom of a trusted guide and confidant. Howard writes with depth, insight, and authenticity, weaving together personal experiences, poetry, and compelling scholarship to reveal a transformational theology that is actually good news for the entire community of creation. —Amy Kenny, author of My Body is Not a Prayer Request
“In this meditation and memoir, Anna Howard shares the complex reality of journeying from her childhood faith towards an ever-deepening understanding of Christ, justice, challenge, and hope. This brilliant book is a must-read for anyone asking the hard questions about rediscovering faith when one realizes that the suppositions, hierarchies, and -isms built into one’s story of faith cannot stand.” —Yejide Peters, Berkeley Divinity School
Anna Howard is a trusted teacher who understands the trauma of bad theology and charts a path toward recovery. Her wisdom shines through the intersection of storytelling, cultural commentary, and bible teaching. It could be said that the church's public witness is one of pride, division, and meanness. Inward Apocalypse offers us hope and a roadmap so that we can restore the common good together. If you've ever found yourself disoriented or disturbed by the scandals or misuse of power by clergy leaders, this book is for you. You will feel seen, cared for, and loved - this book is a well of healing. —Ashley Abercrombie, author of Love is the Resistance
"Anna weaves together vivid personal experience and rich theological reflection. Her voice in Inward Apocalypse is a steady, faithful guide for any who have found themselves out of sorts or tightly bound by the story of God they were given. Through recounting her own moments of disruption, Anna invites readers to find their way through their own such moments and encounter a more expansive, beautiful, and transformative faith." —Megan Westra, author of Born Again and Again
