Mackyn W. Hubbell recently released his 18th book titled Break Thou the Bread of Life: Reflections on the Written Word.

"It is from genesis to revelations, in simple terms—the whole story of the Bible," said Hubbell.

Hubbell came to the Delta in 1962 to serve First Baptist Church as pastor and after teaching theology in New Orleans, Hubbell began extensive mission work overseas.

Since his return to the Delta he has been writing for The Bolivar Commercial for 14 years.

In his book there are 52 reflections on a scripture reference, organized chronologically.

These reflections are Biblical essays in simplified prose based on sermons Hubbell has done throughout his life.

Each chapter beings with a scripture reference and ends with a "pilgrim's prayer."

"I'm more of a hobby writer, I enjoy writing in my home at a stand up desk. I write long hand," said Hubbell.

The cover of the book is a painting done by Hubbell's nephew, Steven Hubbell, who had his wife bake bread and then took a picture of him breaking the bread.

From this photo, the painting was made.

Hubbell has written many other books including the Up and Down series, Outhouse Theology, This and That, and is currently working on Above and Beyond Chance.

There will be a book signing on June 19 at 6 p.m. at First Baptist Church.

Proceeds will go to foreign missions.

After the initial release, the book will be available in bookstores throughout the Delta.
