BobHostetlerBob Hostetler here, offering another prayer for writers:

Abba,
I am a weak writer:
insecure,
inadequate,
in over my head.
But you chose Ehud because of his weakness.
You used him,
not to mention Moses, David, Jeremiah, Paul, and others
(though I did just mention them; see what I mean?).
So grant me the faith
to believe that you can choose me and use me too.

The Return (Book #2 of The Northkill Amish)

by Bob Hostetler and J. M. Hochstetler

Publisher: Sheaf House (April 1, 2017)

ISBN: 1936438445

ISBN-13: 9781936438440

Book description: Historical Novel

After their home was destroyed and their family massacred, Jakob Hochstetler and his sons Joseph and Christian were taken captive, marched into the wilderness, and separated into separate clans and families. As their surviving family members in the Northkill Amish community try to learn where they are and have them returned to their homes, the captives wonder if they will ever see home again. Or if it even still exists.

 

The Chamberlain Key 

by Timothy Smith with Bob Hostetler

Publisher: Waterbrook (April 4, 2017)

ISBN: 1601429150

ISBN-13: 9781601429155

Book description: Nonfiction

In The Chamberlain Key, noted appraiser and conservator of artifacts and antiquities Timothy Smith manages to unlock doors that have been locked for centuries. Smith’s book is a stunning encryption and coded information in the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Old testament, the Leningrad Codex. Rather than poring over old maps to find buried treasure, Smith uses the data calculation power of computer technology to show how Scripture is layered with meaning and insight—and holds a message of God’s redemptive plan.

BobHostetlerBob Hostetler here, offering another prayer for writers:

I use too many adjectives
and adverbs as I write;
I want the lift a good noun gives
to help a phrase take flight,
like dandelion, balustrade,
and cricket, poppy, trough,
and foghorn, meadow, cannonade,
assassin, scythe, and toff,
and more, I pray, from You who gave
each item, object, thing,
and every single noun I have
to make my writing sing.
