Spring Break – Book Release News

Due to the fact that my kids have been on Spring break and that the bass are starting to bite here in Southern Illinois, I have not been blogging much this week.  But that does not mean that I have not been busy working and writing.  I am pleased to tell you that we are just 31 days away from the official release of my book “Cultivating A Gospel-Shaped Attitude” on May 5th.  We are already taking advance orders and I am planning on doing a sermon series at First Baptist, starting May 5th to coincide with the book.  If this guy is any indication, so far the reaction has either been very good or the book causes severe brain trauma.  I will let you be the judge of which it is.   Actually that is my dear friend and former preacher boy/intern Nate Martin who officially bought the first copy of the book.


If you would like to order a copy of the book you can either:

– Come by the welcome center at First Baptist Church, Metropolis during any of our regular worship services

– Or order online by CLICKING HERE

I will leave you this morning with a couple of the endorsements that the book has received so far:  

“Cultivating A Gospel Shaped Attitude” by Joe Buchanan is a much needed addition to the literature on the Beatitudes. There are many good works available. Dr. Buchanan’s is unique in that it shows how the gospel impacts our attitudes, actions and character. Read it with blessing and practical application.”

–Jerry Vines, Pastor-Emeritus, First Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Florida; Two time president of the Southern Baptist Convention; President, Jerry Vines Ministries, Inc.(www.jerryvines.com)

“There is no shortage of books in this world based on the general premise that, if we adjust or eliminate our bad attitudes, our quality of life will improve.  In Cultivating a Gospel-Centered Attitude, Dr. Buchanan moves beyond feel-good rhetoric to focus instead on the source of a healthy attitude  – in a heart aligned with the desires and teachings of Christ.”

Jerry Falwell, Jr., Chancellor and President, Liberty University
