THOMAS NELSON PUBLISHERS LAUNCHES NEW INSCRIBED RESOURCES

Collection of Books By Women In Ministry Provide Scriptural Depth and Application   

NASHVILLE, TN—Thomas Nelson’s Bible Group, a division of Harper Collins Christian Publishing, launches a new collection of Bible study resources for women under the name InScribed. InScribed (www.inscribedstudies.com) is the first study line of its kind for the publisher, one of the leading inspirational publishers in the world.

The first four InScribed titles releasing March 4 include: Living So That: Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life by Wendy Blight, Leaving Ordinary: Encounter God Through Extraordinary Prayer by Donna Gaines, Dive Deeper: Finding Deep Faith Beyond Shallow Religion by Jenifer Jernigan, and Amazed and Confused: When God’s Actions Collide with Our Expectations by Heather Zempel. The new line can best be defined by how the reader uses and interacts with the material. “We are bringing a new kind of book–an in depth exploration of Scripture,” says Frank Couch, Publisher, Thomas Nelson Bible Group.

“Traditionally Christian non-fiction writers are pastors, therefore it is difficult for talented women writers to get a fair opportunity to be published. InScribed is more than a line of books. It is a community of gifted women writers each with a message that needs to be heard,” says Couch.

InScribed is a collection of studies by women inspired by Proverbs 3:3, leading women not just to survive, but thrive, encouraging them to immerse themselves in the person of Jesus Christ. Mark Batterson, Lysa TerKeurst, Christine Caine, Margaret Feinberg, Kasey Van Norman, and others have given their endorsement. This fall the publisher will release three more titles from authors Sarah Martin, Amanda Haley, and Ashley Linne.

The collection of InScribed books speaks to current life situations from the perspective of Scripture. The InScribed studies are meant to bring appropriate understanding, encouragement, and healing. The books have common elements including personal reflections, biblical illustrations and principles, study helps, reflectivequestions with suggested tasks, additional studies, and discussion.

“The focus of the InScribed Collection has been on the collection, on the community, and on the added value to the consumer in having a new group of enriching book products from these women,” shares Jennifer Keller, Director of Marketing.

The books will be merchandised together in a display that showcases each of the titles and will allow room for the additional titles to come. Nelson’s bulk purchase program will encourage the purchase of multiple copies of any of the books in stores or online.

“Many churches and ministries, like Proverbs 31 Ministries, have been quick to support the collection, already committing to one of the books for a spring study. The more people learn about InScribed, the more they love it. Interacting with the authors and books seems to always lead to a new believer in the collection,” says Keller.

The authors of InScribed are a community focused on collaboration and not competition, enabling authors from many different viewpoints to build community with each other and the larger circle of female readers.
