Brethren Press is offering a large-print version of its annual Advent devotional as a brand-new partner to the regular-print devotional. The 2010 Advent devotional “Emmanuel: God Is with Us,” is written by Edward L. Poling. Congregations and individuals who order by Oct. 1 will receive pre-publication prices.
The devotional is available in two sizes: regular print in a pocket-size paperback booklet; and the new large-print 7- by 11-inch booklet. The text of the large-print version will be 14 point. The price is $2.50, or $5.95 for large print. Orders received by Oct. 1 will get a special discount price of $2, or $5 for large print. Shipping charges will be added to the invoice.
Brethren Press also offers these discounted prices to regular seasonal subscribers who sign up to receive both annual devotionals–Advent and Lent–as a series. Subscriptions to the devotional series are automatically renewed each year and can be cancelled or changed at any time. Churches can customize their subscriptions to the devotional series based on need, for example by ordering 25 regular and 10 large print.
