New Hope® Publishers is pleased to announce the upcoming February 8, 2016, release of Faith Acts: A Provocative Call to Live What You Believe by authors Dillon Burroughs and Jimmy Turner. Faith Acts, a compelling and practical look at James 1:22, uses scriptural and personal ministry insights to inspire Christians to put belief into action. Including real-life stories, this book shows how the hope of Christ changes the worst of circumstances—when ordinary believers commit to living out the principles of God’s Word.
“I am known as a man of action; and therefore, I value action over discussion or passive philosophical bent. Dillon Burroughs and Jimmy Turner are men of action. Men who saw a problem and acted to bring change. Read their book, Faith Acts, and then get in the game!”
—Charles Powell, founder of The Mercy Movement
“Faith Acts is a powerful book that challenges you to examine your life, yet helps you demonstrate the love of Jesus toward others. I was very moved after reading this book, and know you will be, too!”
—Jason Jimenez, national speaker and cohost of Viral Truth TV
