A Clay man has published his second book about faith.
Joel Dison, the pastor at Ruffner Valley Baptist Church in Irondale, will release “Indescribable Joy: Discovering the Principles of Joy from Paul’s Letter to the Phillippians” on Tuesday.
The book is about discovering the principles of joy from Paul’s letter to the Philippians and will teach how to stop seeking those things that bring temporary pleasure and start working on those things that naturally produce sustainable joy, according to the book’s synopsis.
Dison published “Faith Beyond Belief: Understanding True Faith from the Book of James” in November 2012 through Cross Point Publishing.
Dison is a 1984 Hewitt-Trussville High School graduate.
“I love to write. My passions are preaching, teaching and writing,” he said in February. “I love to teach. I love to preach
. I love to write. Those kind of come together and I wanted to turn that into something that other people can get and use, and it be like teaching to them.”
Dison, a project manager with an electrical engineering degree from UAB, earned his Master’s of Divinity degree in 2011 from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He’s a partnership coordinator for Designs for Hope, a missions organization that puts design skills to use in advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Dison is married to Patty and has two adult children as well as one unofficially “adopted” adult child.
