The motivational book “Outrageous Fortune” by Stephen Locke released its premier book trailer. This will spark interest in potential readers to grab and read the book through high-quality graphics and videos. Book trailers provide an additional layer of excitement to help readers understand the book.
Recently, the book received an outstanding review from The US Review of Books reviewer Nicole Yurcaba, highlighting, “Its conversational tone makes it understandable to both new and established believers looking for a unique way to fortify their walks in faith.”
The author, Stephen W. Locke, has spent 35 years as a Presbyterian pastor. He lives in California with his wife, Chris, and his three children. He has directed a series of lectures entitled “Religion in America: Seeking the Common Ground” in conjunction with California State University, Stanislaus.
He has recently retired and spends his days writing and doing research, which he has affectionately named “Pequod.” The ship of Ahab, who is looking for the ‘white whale,” is also working on advent devotions entitled “An Absurd Entrance” and a short story named “Missing.”
Stephen also appeared and was interviewed by Logan Crawford on Spotlight TV, where they talked about the author’s journey in writing the book.
Navigating through troubled times is often fearful, terrifying, and disappointing. We want to make decisions that move us forward, but we are also fearful of making the wrong choice.
Fear is the big boulder that hinders our minds from making those decisions. To overcome fear, we must live our fears and not back out of them or escape them. By facing our fears, we will gain greater spiritual peace.
“Outrageous Fortune: Meditations on Living through a Pandemic and Troubled Times” reminds us that we cannot give what we do not have. We must also heal ourselves first before we can heal other people. We need to comfort ourselves first with God’s words before we encourage others.
These meditations trace the emotional upheaval of our struggle as well as provide hopeful solace in the struggle itself. Philosophers, sociologists, psychologists, spiritual advisors, and theologians are useful sources for this journey.
