Sharon Garlough Brown, author of the bestselling Sensible Shoes series has a new novel, Shades of Light, releasing this August. Advanced reader copies will be available on Sunday, June 23. The book is the story of Wren Crawford, a social worker who struggles with anxiety and depression. She finds solace in art and spiritual formation along with traditional therapeutic interventions, but a relationship from her past threatens to undo her progress. As Wren seeks healing in this beautifully written novel, readers are invited to move beyond pat answers into an experience of hope that illuminates the darkness.
Additionally, IVP will be giving away copies of bestselling author Philip Yancey’s revised and expanded book Fearfully and Wonderfully, coauthored with Dr. Paul Brand and originally released as two separate volumes.

Meador reclaims a vision of common life for our fractured times: a vision that doesn’t depend on the destinies of our economies or our political institutions but on our citizenship in a heavenly city. Only through that vision can we truly work together for the common good.
And on Sunday, June 23, IVP will be giving away paperback copies of Jonathan P. Walton’s groundbreaking, new book, Twelve Lies That Hold America Captive, in which he exposes the cultural myths and misconceptions about America’s identity, showing how our notions of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are at odds with the call to take up our cross and follow Jesus.
