It has often been said that a good book takes you somewhere you’ve never been, and that every page adds an ounce of wisdom.
With this in mind, book lovers took an exciting journey and discovered priceless treasures at the much-awaited 37th Manila International Book Fair (MIBF).
Among these “treasure providers” was OMF Literature (OMFLit).
“Our participation in the MIBF underscored our continuous task of giving hope, inspiration, instruction, and insight to our fellow Filipinos through Christian literature. Our books are like bridges that help connect or draw readers to the Word of God, making it more accessible, easy to understand, and practical for living,” said Yna Reyes, Publishing and Communications Director of OMF Literature, Inc.
“By sharing compelling stories and relevant topics through our books, we hope to help readers discover the Word that would change their lives, and the Truth that has brought real change to our world,” she added.
At the MIBF, 23 new original titles were launched, the two leading titles being Transformed: Mula Sa Pagiging Transwoman, by first-time author Vins Santiago and Lovestruck—Sakit No More, by best-selling autho, Ronald Molmisa.
Transformed: Mula Sa Pagiging Transwoman is the true story of Vins Santiago who used to be a gay transgender that became a full-fledged transsexual woman. Vins holds nothing back in sharing his journey through the traumas he experienced in childhood; his glamorous, yet unfulfilling life as a model and entertainer; his search for love, identity, and wholeness that led him to undergo a risky sex-change surgery; his encounter with God as a married transwoman living in England; and ultimately, his real transformation as a man of God. This story of his colorful life is not the usual conversion testimony that shows a clean break from the old to the new. Rather, it shows that real transformation is messy, and that healing and redemption take time.
Lovestruck—Sakit No More, the sixth book in the bestselling Lovestruck series for young people, is written to help the brokenhearted deal with their grief, and heal from their heartache. Moving on after a break-up is one of the hardest things to do, especially if deep down inside one is still hoping for a reconciliation or rekindling of the lost love. While there is no quick-fix to mend a broken heart, there is still life after losing love, author Molmisa assures those nursing a heartache.
After their launch at the MIBF these two books, along with other OMFLit titles are now available at the OMF bookshops. To check out their branches, visit omflit.com/bookshops
