About Not Perfect Yet Publishing

Not Perfect Yet Publishing and NPYbook.store @ Shopify serves four groups of people:

1) Readers of Historical Fiction, especially those who appreciate well researched books set in Biblical times. Bethany’s people are everyday people, who find their lives transformed by their friendship with Jesus of Nazareth.

2) Church Leaders, both lay and clergy, who are looking for resources that deal with practical issues; such as leadership burnout, lack of spiritual passion, how to build interest in mission and outreach, how to keep moving forward in times of uncertainty and transition, etc.

3) Creative worship leaders interested in using drama to tell the Gospel story. NPY provides not only scripts, but also support for adapting the material to your location and available cast members. 

4) Individuals and congregations experiencing major change. Resources, such as, The Church Transition Workbook and Reality Check 101 provide a process for lowering congregational anxiety and responding in a healthy way to unexpected change. The book, Going Home, is a resource for those individuals facing the great transition at the end of our earthly lives. More self-help resources will be coming in 2025.
