Church to host book signing

Central Christian (Disciples of Christ) Church will host a book signing at 1 p.m. Oct. 28 with recently published author and member of the congregation, the Rev. Dr. William Hine. The public is encouraged to attend the signing, which will begin with an introduction to the book by the author with a time for questions and answers prior to the book signing.

His book, “A Journey of Faith as a Guide for Joy and Peace through Prayer,” is a workbook designed to lift one’s faith in God higher. Hine focuses on using Surrender/Suffering, Humanity, Obedience and Wonder/Awe, or SHOW, principles along with a dedicated prayer life through which one can obtain peace and joy. The workbook chronicles one’s journey to God.

Hine has been a dean and professor in higher education for more than 25 years, and his research interests are adult-learning theory and continuing education.

He is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He has studied the areas of spirituality and meditation and written articles and an earlier book on these topics. Hine is an oblate at St. Meinrad’s Benedictine Monastery in St. Meinrad, and lives in Terre Haute. He also serves on the Board of Trustees of Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis.

Hine will donate the proceeds of the first 30 copies of the book to his church.

Central Christian Church is at 4950 E. Wabash Ave. For more information visit
