toms-book-cover-picOur own Tom Fuerst has published his first book and will lead a Christ Academy class based on it beginning Sunday, Nov. 13. The book shares the untold stories of Advent through five women in the family tree of Jesus. In the class, Tom will show us what the imperfections of Jesus’ family tree can teach us about the redemption of our family brokenness.

Both Shane and Maxie have endorsed the book, which will be available for $10 after services this Sunday, or order online through Cokesbury here. (Online ordering offers the option of ebook or large print edition.) A copy of the book is also available in the Lamppost Library.

Watch these videos to hear from Tom on why he chose this subject matter.

“Tom Fuerst is one of the most effective communicators I know. He writes as he preaches, with clarity and compassion. Rarely is one able to communicate solid scholarship with effective “popular” writing. Tom does that exceptionally well. This book is a valuable asset for pastor and lay person alike, to make Advent rich in understanding and meaning.” -Dr. Maxie Dunnam

“Tom Fuerst is one of the most talented pastors and writers with which I have had the privilege of working. His new book is not only well written but an important window into the Advent journey.” Dr. Shane Stanford
