Books from Higher Ground-New Release!!!!


Books from Higher Ground is proud to announce the December 20 release of The Path to Shalom: Reaching Physical, Mental and Spiritual Wholeness with Bible Focused Meditation by Steen Burke!  

The practice of meditation was a lost biblical discipline that has thankfully been revived in the Church in recent years. It seems everyone in the Church these days agrees that in order to have a fruitful spiritual life, Christians should meditate on the word of God. What the Church can't seem to agree on is: How should Christians meditate? Should spiritual health be the only focus for Christians? And, can Christians meditate on the Word and achieve the same physical, mental and spiritual benefits that meditation produces? 


A Path to Shalom: Reaching Physical, Mental and Spiritual Wholeness with Bible Focused Meditation, was written not only to answer these questions, but to give believers options. In this simple guide you will learn how by performing various meditation techniques with the Bible as your guide or "mantra", you can achieve the mental, physical and spiritual wholeness necessary to live the life that Jesus came so that we could have...an abundant life.

Copies are available for pre-order now by visiting our store. Only $9.99 plus shipping!

Now Accepting Submissions!

We are a unique publishing company and will be seeking authors whose work glorifies Christ. We are especially interested in Memoirs and Personal Testimony. No erotica or horror, please. Our submission guidelines are listed below:

1. We are currently only accepting electronic submissions. Please send to: lonestoryteller@yahoo.com.

5. If you write under a pseudonym, put that beneath the title but your real name in the top left of the first page.

6. Left-justify your paragraphs. Right margins should be “ragged”. Ensure there is at least a 1 inch margin all the way around your text. This is to allow annotation to be written onto a printed copy.
