Update on Strong for a Moment like This

Nashville, TN - Abingdon Press has published today Strong for a Moment like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton by UM pastor Bill Shillady.
We learned yesterday, August 14, that the devotion for November 9, 2016, the day after the election, was not attributed as it should have been. News of this omission was shared with CNN by the pastor whose blog post was used as a source after CNN published an excerpt from the book and featured the November 9 devotion. On the afternoon of August 14, CNN published another article with the headline, "Hillary Clinton's Pastor Plagiarized Portions of New Book."
