Author Jeff Petherick Brings GRACE LIKE RAIN To NRB 2012
Financial expert, author and philanthropist Jeff Petherick recently attended the 2012 National Religious Broadcasters Convention (NRB), held Feb. 18-22, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Petherick was at the convention to promote his upcoming book, Grace Like Rain: Soaking Up God's Best, Even When We're At Our Worst, reports McCain & Co. Public Relations.
"It was remarkable for me to have the opportunity to be at NRB this year and gain some insight into the multiple ways people are using media and technology to creatively spread Jesus' message to the world," says Petherick. "While the challenge remains reaching the spiritually deaf and blind, it is clear we live in a time in which the whole world will have a chance to hear, see and reconcile with the truth."
Thousands of Christian broadcasters, programmers, ministers and others participated in the convention, which is presented annually by the National Religious Broadcasters.
Petherick's second book, Grace Like Rain, examines the most powerful and perhaps most misunderstood power in the universe — God's grace — through real-life accounts about a God who did the unthinkable to save the unlovable. The book is set for release this Spring.
Grace Like Rain will be published by Elk Lake Publishing and will be distributed by New Day Christian Distributors. For more information on Petherick, Grace Like Rain or Elk Lake Publishing, visit elklakepublishing.com.
