Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, is pleased to announce that in early September they are releasing the memoir of Mark Lee, a founding member of Christian rock group Third Day.
Hurt Road (Revell; ISBN 9780800729004; ebook ISBN 9781493412471; $15.99) is the story of Mark Lee’s dreams and successes, losses and heartaches, and all the miles in between. The guitarist of Third Day is no stranger to heartache and hopes deferred; the road to success is never traveled without missteps along the way. This is the engaging true story of a teenager who found in music a refuge from the uncertainties of life and then set out to discover a better way to live than constantly struggling to make sure life turned out the way he planned it. One of the best things Lee has ever done is let go of his expectations about how life should be in order to embrace life as it is: a moment-by-moment walk with God. For anyone feeling knocked down or run over by their circumstances, Hurt Road will dare them to give up control to the One who already has the road all mapped out.
“Mark’s talent doesn’t stop with the guitar and his amazing career with Third Day,” states Andrea Doering, executive editor, Revell. “Hurt Road is a poignant, funny, and thoughtful work on the ways and means of God, and every reader will find themselves looking at their life circumstances with new eyes.”
