A new RFPA book is coming: Gottschalk: Servant of God, A Story of Courage, Faith, and Love for the Truth by Connie L. Meyer. This history occurred during the Dark Ages: the days of knights, castles, kings, queens, monasteries, Vikings, and monks. But one monk stood out from all the rest. One monk stood firm for the truth he believed though no one stood with him. This is the story of Gottschalk of Orbais, a French monk who lived in the ninth century and suffered for his belief and advocacy of double predestination. This book has been written to be enjoyed by junior high and high school readers. Because the story is intriguing and the history of Gottschalk is not well-known, adults will also enjoy this book and find the reading profitable. This RFPA book will soon be delivered to Book Club members. If you are not a Book Club member and would like to order this book, call 616-457-5970, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.rfpa.org.
