New Xulon Title--Author's Free Prescription to a 'Merry Heart' Bork imparts inspiring short stories based on the Bible and everyday life

MAITLAND, Fla., Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In his new book, Fifty Two plus One: Devotional Letters for the Heart ($16.49, paperback, 9781628399547; $8.99, e-book, 9781628399554) Maynard Bork pens personal, epistle-style stories addressed to his readers. The intent behind gathering these narratives is to serve as a weekly, Christian devotional. Overall, the author emphasizes a warm and uncompromising theme of God's personal love throughout his writings.


"[This book is] a weekly devotional which makes it a little different from most of the other devotionals out there," states the author. "There is one letter for every week of the year and even an extra one for leap year. Being in letter form creates an intimate relationship between the author and the reader, and ultimately between the reader and God."

The author resides with his wife of over forty years in southeast Texas. He has a daughter, a son and three grandsons. He and his wife spent several years as Christian clowns, ministering to children and adults. He is a licensed minister, does hospital visitation and is a part of his church's prayer team. He enjoys writing, drawing with pencils, and restoring antique furniture. Restoration – Yesterday, Today, and Forever, also by Maynard Bork, can be purchased from Xulon Press, online or at your favorite bookstore.
