ovu president shank authors book entitled godworks
October 18, 2016 (VIENNA, WV)—Ohio Valley University President Dr. Harold Shank recently authored a book entitled Godworks: Joining Jesus on the Journey.
In Godworks, Shank celebrates his fifty years of ministry by sharing personal stories that seek to inspire others to join Jesus on their own journey of service.
“Like the narratives in the Bible, we all fill our lives with stories. As we look back over our own stories we see how God makes himself known, and how He draws people to faith. Like the people whose stories appear in Scripture, we too have experiences that arise out of our faith. God works in us,” says Dr. Shank.
The book is dedicated to the Ohio Valley University board of trustees and was illustrated by his wife, Sally Shank. It is currently available through the Ohio Valley University Bookstore [HERE] and the 21st Century Christian Publishing catalog.
“Shank’s lifelong love of God, scripture, and people shines through the repertoire of his ministry stories. You will cry, smile and be inspired by the testimony of these real life vignettes of God’s power and grace in people’s lives,” says Dr. Lynn McMillon, President and CEO of the international Christian publication The Christian Chronicle.
Dr. Shank has authored several books including Listening to His Heartbeat: What the Bible Says About the Heart of God; Loosening Your Grip; Up Close and Personal: Embracing the Poor; Children Mean the World to God; The Minor Prophets, Vol. 1, The College Press NIV Commentary; and It’s All About God.
