African American History Month Update
Abolitionist and humanitarian Harriet Tubman once said, "“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars, to change the world.” In addition to leaders and trailblazers like Tubman, Hadassah's Crown Publishing salutes and appreciates all of the great black authors, playwrights and poets who have lived the dream and contributed literature that has contributed to civil rights and shares the African American experience.
We are excited to announce the following new title, recognitions and upcoming events.
Who I Am in Christ
Empowering believers to see and understand with confidence their true identity in Christ is critical. Knowing
that we can come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of
need means as believers, God has freely given us the right to approach Him without condemnation, guilt, fear, or shame. This book serves as an introduction to understanding & knowing 1) God is in you 2) Who you are in Christ and 3) You can live the life of Christ!
