The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Robert Graysmith’s Black Fire: The True Biography of the Original Tom Sawyer, the dual narrative of the investigation to stop an arsonist who burned 1850s San Francisco to the ground six times in 18 months (the most devastating series of fires in American history) and the story of Mark Twain’s firefighter friend who was there.

The Pit:

Ron Kincaid’s practical guide to prayer, challenging readers to change their lives by offering prayers God is more likely to answer—based on a prayer journal the author has kept for over 30 years.
