ATLANTA, GA, (September 15, 2015) – Award-winning journalist, Marvin Brown, releases a full-color history book of The House of the Lord in Akron, Ohio. The book, The House the Lord Built, honors the 40-year history of the church, its members, and its legacy. Brown beautifully captures the story of how God built a church from the ground up, infused it with grace, and performed miracles all along the way. Memories of gratitude are sure to be the result as members of this church and those who had a hand in building the church, reflect on its 40-year history.

This is the House the Lord Built. He built it with the hands of a thousand people with a thousand stories. It is a House held together by faith and family, a House rich in its tradition of preaching, teaching and community ministry. As this House, under the leadership of Bishop F. Josephus Johnson II, celebrates its 40th year, it is time to hear those stories, those struggles, the tragedy and triumph of servants of God. In prose, photographs and members’ own words, the past, present and future of one of Akron’s largest churches is revealed and celebrated.

Marvin Brown is a journalist and English graduate of Ohio’s Bowling Green State University. He is the author of two novels and two award-winning short stories. An Akron, Ohio resident, he has been a member of The House of the Lord since 2002.
