BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS! I have two super exciting pieces of news to share. The first is that WJK Press has officially finalized and released the cover of my book and I’m thrilled to share it with you here. Along with the cover reveal, I’m so thrilled to say that author and Christian historian Diana Butler Bass has graciously agreed to write the foreword to Holy Disunity. I’m so grateful to have her voice involved in this project.
You can see the book cover below! And you can also see what Publisher’s Weekly had to say about Holy Disunity in their recent writeup about “Books to Mend a Divided America.” And stay tuned for news about preordering very soon!
BIG BIG NEWS! I’M PUBLISHING A BOOK! Just this week I signed a contract with Westminster John Knox Press to publish my first book, due out in Fall of 2019. The working title is Holy Disunity: How What Separates Us Can Also Save Us. It will explore how we’ve made an idol out of unity, the surprising and holy gifts we find in disunity, and how we can faithfully coexist in a divided world. Keep your eyes on this space for updates.
You can also get regular updates, as well as hear my musings on life/theology/current events, by signing up for my new newsletter, Here’s The Thing, which will be sent out every other Tuesday morning.
Preaching As Resistance is officially published! This book from Chalice Press is a collection of sermons from a whole slew of powerful preachers, speaking at the intersection of faith and the turbulent times we live in. I’m honored to be a contributor to this collection with a chapter called “The Sleepless Night: A sermon on Ferguson, Keeping Awake, and Jesus” which I originally preached at Fourth Presbyterian Church in December of 2014. If you’re in need of some words that provide hope, justice, and solidarity, I encourage you to get yourself a copy of Preaching As Resistance. You can order one here!
