In her latest release, The Most Misunderstood Women of the Bible: What Their Stories Teach Us About Thriving, popular author, speaker, podcaster, and literary agent DeMuth draws readers in at the very beginning to transparently share her own connection to being misunderstood. Combining her gift for storytelling, and her scholarly skills, DeMuth looks at the lives of misunderstood biblical women we may have skipped over—women like Eve, Bathsheba, Tamar, The Proverbs 31 Woman, and Mary of Magdala among others, women, not so different from ourselves. What if we could step into the lives of these women and learn something from their stories? What if readers began to gather hope and learn a better way to work through being misunderstood? "One of the most difficult encounters of my life happened when a person I loved completely misunderstood me, something I’m still working through today. That feeling of helplessness and confusion over a seemingly unsolvable misunderstanding became the impetus for writing this book. Because I love the Bible and its rich tapestry of stories, I asked myself the question, ‘Which biblical women walked through the pain of misunderstanding, and how can their stories help me navigate my own?’ In The Most Misunderstood Women of the Bible, DeMuth ends each chapter with TRUTHS ABOUT FULLY UNDERSTOOD YOU, and QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION. Mary also provides more hope in her conclusion, MISUNDERSTOOD NO MORE. DeMuth does what she does best. She takes a difficult topic, making it clear and relevant, while honestly pointing readers back to the truth. http://marydemuth.com

Dr. Hyun Sook Foley tells the real-life “hero’s journeys" of ten North Korean Christians. She shares how they learned to give up their "victims' stories" and become victors in Christ, by coming to understand how Christ tells the story of their lives. As North Koreans grow up, they have to memorize more than one hundred stories about Kim Il Sung’s life. Kim Il Sung is the hero of nearly every North Korean’s story. But when North Koreans escape their country, they learn that Kim Il Sung was no hero. They struggle to make sense of life. They quickly accept the stories that others tell them: That they are victims, or even traitors. This book is the product of coaching traumatized North Koreans to narrate their life stories using a different frame than the ones they learned in North Korea or South Korea. That different frame is Joseph Campbell’s “hero’s journey” as analyzed in The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Campbell believed this twelve-stage backstory would be seen behind the stories of heroes in literally every culture in the world. With surprisingly little outside coaching, life change became possible for these North Koreans because they changed the way they told, thought about, and lived their stories. In very much the same way, each reader of this book can re-learn the way they tell their own stories. http://vomkorea.com
