The 2009 Ferguson-Clark Author Series to Feature Max Lucado

July 23, 2009

The Baylor University Libraries are thrilled to welcome Max Lucado as the featured presenter for the seventh annual Ferguson-Clark Author Series on Nov. 12 at 7:00 p.m. in Waco Hall. For almost 25 years, Max has been telling stories about the love of Christ and the grace of God. In this current climate of world-wide political unrest and financial instability, his new book Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear reveals how trust in God can overcome fear.

"The relationship between trust and fear is pretty simple," said Max. "Trust is fear that chooses to believe. It's not the absence of fear, but it's a facing of fear with faith that results in deeper trust."

Fearless will be released by Thomas Nelson Publishers in September 2009 and will join his impressive list of other titles, such as On the Anvil, God Came Near, When God Whispers Your Name, He Chose the Nails, The Cure for the Common Life and 3:16- The Numbers of Hope. With more than 65 million books in print, Max has been on every major national bestseller list including The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Christian Booksellers Association, USA Today and Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.

Max and his wife Denalyn have been married since 1981 and live in San Antonio, Texas, where Max is also the Minister of Writing and Preaching at Oak Hills Church. They have three daughters--one of whom is a sophomore at Baylor. This means Max is not only a best-selling author and internationally renowned speaker, but he is also a member of the Baylor family.

We hope you will join us at Waco Hall on November 12 to hear Max Lucado share this timely message of hope, faith and the love of God. Tickets are on sale NOW! Visit www.baylor.edu/libraryauthorseries/ for more information and to purchase tickets
