New books from Converge authors

Unlikely Hero, by Duncan Robinson

Flips the script in traditional heroism and exposes the liberating truth that what seemingly guaranteed our place among the outcasts and forgotten are the primary catalysts to humility and surrender – the starting line of the unlikely hero.” Order from In God Press, wwwXPpublishing.com.
