One of the Year’s Best Kept Secrets: Every Moment Holy

Spring Arbor currently has an additional 7,000 copies on order.

Though I’ve only had one order for this title, it made me aware of it and I’ve been tracking its success since it released this summer. The book is Every Moment Holy, Volume 1, Pocket Size. It’s described as:

…a book of liturgies for the ordinary events of daily life–liturgies such as “A Liturgy for Feasting with Friends” or “A Liturgy for Laundering” or “A Liturgy for the First Hearthfire of the Season.” These are ways of reminding us that our lives are shot through with sacred purpose even when, especially when, we are too busy or too caught up in our busyness to notice. Includes over 100 liturgies for daily life (including liturgies for meals) in a beautiful leather-bound flex-cover…

It is apparently a reissue of a previously published (no longer available) hardcover edition.

Who is the author?

From the book’s website:

Douglas Kaine McKelvey grew up in East Texas and moved to Nashville in 1991 to participate in the early work of Charlie Peacock’s Art House Foundation, an organization dedicated to a shared exploration of faith and the arts. In the decades since, he has worked as an author, song lyricist, scriptwriter, and video director. He has penned more than 350 lyrics recorded by a variety of artists including Switchfoot, Kenny Rogers, Sanctus Real, and Jason Gray. He and his wife Lise have three grown daughters and two sons-in-law. Douglas has served for the last four years as the sexton at St. John’s Anglican Church in Franklin, Tennessee.

The 302-page book is available from Ingram/Spring Arbor using ISBN 9781951872021 and has a $24.99 US list price.
