Integrity Publishers' first ever releases, My Heart's Desire and Open the Eyes of My Heart, have taken over the sales charts since their simultaneous release on August 3, 2002. My Heart's Desire entered at No. 20 on the ECPA (Evangelical Christian Publishers Association) "Hardcover Bestseller" list, and Open the Eyes of My Heart entered the "Gift Book" list at No. 11.
"We are extremely grateful to see this amount of enthusiasm for our first two titles," states Byron Williamson, Integrity Publishers president and CEO. "The Integrity Publishers' team has invested an enormous amount of time and energy into the launch of our first list and that effort has yielded phenomenal results."
Dr. David Jeremiah (pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, Calif. and the host of "Turning Point" radio ministry) penned My Heart's Desire, in which he discusses the power of living every moment in the wonder of worship. His second book for Integrity Publishers, Sanctuary: Finding Moments of Refuge in the Presence of God, is a daily devotional scheduled to release in November.
Open the Eyes of My Heart is based on the record-breaking, best-selling Songs4Worship™ music collection from Integrity Music and TimeLife. Ninety devotionals inspired by the most popular praise & worship music of all time. The second book in the series, Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart, provides readers with another 90 songs and devotions.
Other upcoming fall releases from Integrity Publishers include titles from noted authors Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, Frank Peretti, and George Barna.
