The Undoing of Saint Silvanus by Beth Moore

Phyllis Giveaway 59 Comments

I have read and studied Beth Moore’s books for years and find her to be a gifted Bible study author and teacher. She is a resource in the world of Christian women—millions collect and study her books. She lives in Houston, Texas, where she leads Living Proof Ministries with the purpose of teaching women how to love and live on God’s Word.

I can remember a time in my life when her words and insight into the scriptures made a dramatic difference. All women who study her works know she is the real thing! She is a dedicated wife and mother, with two adult daughters and three delightful grandchildren. She is not only beautiful outside but inside as well.

So what is Beth up to now? Well, I have exciting news! She has written her first work of fiction, The Undoing of Saint Silvanus. It releases today! I was so excited to receive a copy to read—Beth grabs you from the first paragraph, and you find yourself right in the middle of a mysterious situation.

The setting is New Orleans, where Jillian Slater, her main character, finds herself back home for a family funeral—the funeral of her father in fact. Needless to say they were not close, and Jillian had not seen him or her grandmother in over 20 years. From the time she got on the airplane, she thought of turning back. What was she doing? Why had her grandmother’s landlord paid for her to come back to New Orleans? After all, she was happy in Houston and had disconnected from all of the past. What made her finally go through with this?

During the investigation of her father’s death, Jillian is drawn into the lives of “saints and sinners” that pass through Saint Silvanus. The mystery is in the family’s past, as Jillian finds out from the web of spiritual and personal danger her return has led her into. Jillian even thinks her family may be cursed! How will God work in this situation?

This is a must-read for all Beth Moore fans and those who love a great book. Published by Tyndale House Publishers, this will be another best seller for Beth Moore.

Now, more good news—you have an opportunity to win one of five autographed copies of this first edition! I will choose five winners Thursday, September 27th at 9:00 a.m. Good Luck!

  1. I don’t know Beth Moore but from the comments of other women she seems to be
    a wonderful person.
    I took note of the title and will try to find it if I don’t win

  2. I remember many years ago during some lonely times I watched a program of hers on a Sunday morning and was really inspired, she put things in my life back in perspective with my Christian values and I was so grateful I turned my TV on that morning!
    She was my Angel that day…..her written word would be of most value, sentiment and treasured by me. Thank you for bring her to our attention she is such an inspiration. Carmel

  3. I love Beth’s work. In fact I am reading Audicious at the moment. Would LOVE to win her new book!
    Thank you for this opportunity…

  4. Beth Moore has been a blessing in my life, as well. I look forward to reading this book and sharing it with friends. Thank you for your generosity! Sandy Spivey

  5. I love Beth Moore studies…have done several. She is a gifted teacher. I love to read good Christian fiction, and this sounds like a really good story. Hope I win!

  6. I have never read any of her works and don’t know how I have missed them. This sounds like an exciting place to start. Need a break from reality right now and what better way than to immerse myself in a good book!

  7. I’m thinking the same thing Linda Brooks. My birthday is also September 25th and I live in Texas!I love mysteries based in New Orleans. I went once with my youngest daughter and we loved the sights and foods but also a quaint bookstore either its own cat. Anyway this would be a first Beth Moore book for my library.

  8. That would be a fabulous birthday gift (Sep 25)!! Can’t wait to get my hands on this book. Beth Moore’s spiritual insight is life changing, and we benefit.

  9. I enjoy reading, Period. I read mysteries, biographies, children’s books. History, could go on and on, so am definitely, positively very sure I would enjoy this one. I have a kindle that is strictly for reading, but still love the feel of a hard back book.

  10. I really have a problem with so-called “Christian” literature. I have read very few such novels because they are unrealistic in my experience. I do not see the need to label any book according to religion. Would you label “To Kill a Mockingbird” anything other than great literature? I believe that a work of literature succeeds or fails based on its merits (or lack thereof) as a work of art, not the professed religious beliefs of the author. I feel that people who limit themselves to “Christian” literature are limiting their view of the human condition. I am proud to say that I belong to the Anglican Church, but I do not want to limit myself to a single opinion of people and our world in general. That said, I really enjoy Victoria Magazine and have done so for many, many years.

  11. I love Beth Moore’s devotionals. And our family is going through a trying time right now, so I have found so much comfort in her works.
    Also love your blogs. Thanks for this opportunity to win a book.

  12. I’ve had the privilege of doing Beth Moore’s Bible studies, God has gifted her with an amazing teaching gift! Her book sounds like a treat!

  13. I have attended many of Beth Moore’s Bible groups over the years, would love to win the book. This will be a great book for my
    friends and family for Christmas. THANK YOU.

  14. Thank you Phyllis for being unafraid to share your faith, this is one of the reasons that I purchase your beautifully done publications.

  15. This is so exciting! I am a Beth Moore fan. She has gotten be through some tough times with her inspired insights into God’s word! I’m hoping to be one of your winners but regardless…this will be on my reading list! Thank you Phyllis!

  16. Count me in as a Beth Mooreophile! She is the person God used to teach me how to dig deep in His Word for myself and how to, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to recognize the importance of these two Latin terms when I was exposed to them in other arenas as well as to live my life using these two Latin terms:

    Ordo amoris: the ordering of my loves in my life so that I
    keep my priorities straight

    Coram Deo: living my life in the very presence of God, or in
    His face, so that what I think, say, and do matches my relation-
    ship with God

    I’m not saying I’ve “arrived” by any stretch of the imagination, but my appreciation of how God used Beth Moore as an instrument along my journey with Him over the many years of participating and leading her studies runs deep and wide.

    Beth is such a great writer, so I can only imagine how great her fiction will be!

    As your Catholic “friend”, I’m sorry to say I have not read her books, but will certainly begin!! I’d love to win this one, but will go online and certainly seek her out!

    This is a scary time… And we women of faith MUST be strong and stick together! Her novel sounds so good! As an avid reader, can’t wait to begin.

    God bless you and your wonderful blog.
