WEB EXTRA: Journalist explores the subject of God

Have you ever wondered what God is like? Are we missing something?

Have you ever wondered what God is like? Are we missing something?

With Google reporting millions of hits on the question of the nature of God — a new ground-breaking nonfiction book is not only newsworthy, it appeals to the unique spiritual interests of this generation of men and women.

For more than 5,000 years, scholars focused on the paternal or fatherly qualities of the loving kindness of God, but did they miss the maternal side?

What is it about this issue that triggers such controversy?

In the Mother Heart of God: Unveiling the Mystery of the Father’s Maternal Love, Trudy Beyak — an award-winning Black Press journalist and a devout Christian — catalogues her five-year spiritual journey researching the Bible and a sabbatical when she interviewed more than 50 leading scholars and celebrities from Oxford University to the Middle East.

What is God like? What sacred evidence does the Bible reveal?

“I was pleasantly surprised to discover a new, engaging picture of the God I thought I knew!” she says.

In addition to a first-class journalistic investigation, The Mother Heart of God is a compelling personal story as Beyak shares some of her most poignant moments in life.

What began as a global investigation, ended up being a powerful spiritual experience.

“The Mother Heart of God is brilliant, balanced and beautiful!” says William P. Young, a best-selling author who literally could not put the book down once he had it in his hands.

This unique non-fiction spiritual book is generating much public interest and discussion. The Mother Heart of God is published by FaithWords, a division of the Hachette Book Publishing Group. For more information, see www.themotherheartofgod.com.

About the author: During her 20-year career as a journalist with the Abbotsford News, Trudy Beyak became known as one of the top writers for the Black Press Newspaper Group, which owns newspapers in Canada, Washington State, Ohio, California and Hawaii.

She earned 30 first-place international, national and provincial journalism awards, two Jack Webster awards, as well as a nomination for the Order of British Columbia. She is a mom of three daughters and grandma to seven grandchildren — three boys and four girls.
