)-- Signalman Publishing is proud to announce the release in paperback and as an ebook for the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble nook and the Apple iBookstore of "Hanged in Shame, Standing in Glory: Life Lessons from the Thief on the Cross" by Jeffrey J. Valerioti of Marietta, Georgia.
"Hanged in Shame, Standing in Glory: Life Lessons from the Thief on the Cross" offers the reader a closer examination of Christ’s words to the penitent thief as recorded in the Gospel of Luke. The book contains 12 lessons to be applied for personal growth in the lives of both the seeker and the Christian. While the most important lesson learned from the thief on the cross may be that it is never too late to choose Christ, there are numerous life lessons to be unlocked from the brief account of this repentant criminal on the cross next to Jesus. As the reader journeys back to the hill at Calvary, he is invited to interact with Scripture at a deeper level and fix his eyes and his heart upon the brief exchange between two dying men: one serving a sentence as the just punishment for his own sins and the One serving the sentence for the rest of mankind. In just five verses from Luke's Gospel capturing the words spoken between the two near the hour of their deaths, God reveals twelve life-changing lessons that will strengthen the hearts of believers and open the eyes of the unbelievers.
John McClure, president of Signalman Publishing, stated, "This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to understand the Gospel message and appreciate the interaction between Jesus and the penitent thief. For, at our core, we are all just like this thief."
"Hanged in Shame, Standing in Glory" (ISBN: 978-1-935991-68-7, $11.99, Non-Fiction) from Signalman, is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble.com, and wherever fine books are sold.
