Author John Harwood explores modern-day leadership in light of God’s plans for our world in The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters ($17.99, paperback, 9781545600528; $8.99, e-book, 9781545600535).  Looking through history, he believes we can make sense of leaders’ victories and failures by seeing them through God’s Word.


Harwood addresses wide-scale religious issues such as the state of our country, or the contrast between Islam and Christianity, alongside personal applications like finding strength in God and studying His Word for answers.


“This Christian nonfiction book describes how we can all find the answers to our modern-day problems in God's Word. Through careful Scripture study and analysis, Christians can discover God's plans for them,” said Harwood.
