New book “Treestand Devotionals”, by John Van, Talks Hunting With a Higher Purpose
Book helps men find quiet time outdoors to think, pray, connect
As hunting season picks up in many states across the US, men of all ages will take to the forests in search of big game – and if author and outdoor enthusiast John Van is heard, God.
Van’s new book, Treestand Devotionals, was inspired by countless hours spent by the author alone in the wilderness, hunting from his treestand. This quiet time inspired Van to seek out a relationship with God that any man can achieve. The book is an intimate weekly devotional that is uniquely organized around the hunting calendar, and relates “the intangibles of hunting to the necessities of faith”.
“This book was written to get Christian men off the sidelines,” says Van. “Its important for men today to have time to be able to think about transforming their ‘head knowledge’ of God into a ‘heart knowledge’”.
Treestand Devotionals is the perfect gift for hunters, outdoor enthusiasts and men of all ages looking to further their relationship with God.

About the author
A “timberframe” builder by trade, a “lay” minister by calling, and an “out of work” professional hunter by circumstance, John Van is comfortable in all three of these environments. Spending hours upon hours hunting from treestands and ground blinds, John has used this time to dig into God’s Holy Word and to pray for calling and direction. This book is a collection of devotionals, given to him, during those quiet times with God.
