Newest Billy Bray Book coming this month

By James.B

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (ANS -- March 8, 2017) - WestBow Press will release a new missions challenge book this month from author Billy [Bill] Bray. The book is in production now and is expected to be available in bookstores for graduation gift-giving.

Titled "Called to All: How I Discovered the Power of a Yielded Life," it is primarily a spiritual challenge to the next generation of student leadership. Bray says it answers the question every spiritually-minded student must ask, "Is God calling me?"

The book challenges readers to urgently consider full or part-time Christian careers. Missional thinking is creating a new kind of spiritual entrepreneurism, he says.

To order an autographed first edition, contact the author at 434-227-0811 or

"This is not just a book for millennials," says Bray, "but a guide to discernment for everyone wherever they are on life's journey."
