MADISON, NC â€“ Americaâ€™s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, The Hoppers, is proud to announce the establishment of the Hopper Heritage Series, a long-term family commitment to publishing extraordinary Christian book titles and materials that encourage, inspire and energize believers in Christ.
According to the groupâ€™s founder, Claude Hopper, the first of the seriesâ€”Time Spent With Godâ€”will be nationally released Sept. 12th â€“ 18th, at their booth at the National Quartet Convention (NQC), Kentucky Fair & Expo Center, Louisville, KY.
Time Spent With God is a â€œthoughtful and moving daily devotional,â€ penned by North Carolina author and speaker Sandy Blackburn. Virginia Hopper Steele, Claude Hopperâ€™s sister, wrote the bookâ€™s foreword.
â€œThe Lord has given Sandy Blackburn one of His most gracious gifts,â€ said Virginia in the foreword, â€œby enabling her to write about everyday happenings in life. God has taught her through the insights of everyday life experiencesâ€”and through the study of the Scripturesâ€”and from her heart and hand flow wonderful writings that will both inspire and encourage others.â€
Claude describes the book as being Biblically-sound, thought-provoking and uplifting, adding that the groupâ€™s goal, through this new literary effort, is to encourage believers, while reaching out to others with the Good News.
Current plans are to include the launch of a new book title each year, as part of the Hopper Heritage Series.
After its release at NQC, the book, Time Spent With God, will be available at the Hoppersâ€™ appearances across the country and overseas, and for sale on their website, www.thehoppers.com.
All proceeds derived from Time Spent With God will be applied to the Hopper Heritage Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging, supporting and celebrating Southern Gospel music and contributing to the education of a new generation of Christian leaders.
