NEW! Views from the Mountain by James Earl Massey
Preaching about the good news in Christ has been Dr. Massey’s life passion. He has studied it as a craft, taught it as a calling, written about it as an accomplished professional, and practiced it as few others can. His voice has echoed from ecumenical pulpits around the world, on radio and television, in seminary chapels of numerous denominations, in countless lecture halls, and from his own urban pulpit in Detroit for a quarter of a century.
Emerging from the Wesleyan/Holiness tradition of Christianity, Dr. Massey soon came to belong to the whole church. A world-class pianist, he answered God’s call to abandon the concert stage and mount the pulpit to share the joy of heaven’s music. Rarely does one voice speak with equal wisdom on fields as diverse and demanding as Bible interpretation, Christian education, inspired preaching, seminary education, and ministries of reconciliation.
A friend of Martin Luther King, Jr., and deeply impacted by the person and preaching of Howard Thurman, Dr. James Earl Massey also has been to God’s mountain, heard from the Divine, and now shares with all prepared to listen.

NEW! Social Holiness by Jonathan S. Raymond
Social Holiness is a critical caution surrounded by a potentially great resource. We tend to become the company we keep! This clear-headed account of “holiness” invites unholy humans into holy community, connecting the individual’s experience of holiness with God’s own Triune-self, always both communal and social. God then facilitates, nurtures, and deepens the experience, primarily in and through the other forms of company we keep, which ties the experience of holiness to participation in the loving mission of Jesus. This book is a must read for any serious Christian.

Bible Stories for Strong Stomachs
by Barry L. Callen
A serious and sometimes whimsical taking of readers into the most awkward and even repulsive biblical narratives to find answers to the difficult questions facing believers today. Here is an outstanding resource for young adults, Sunday school classes, and quest groups that will provoke real conversations about the Bible and how the faithful should be living their lives. These twenty-eight Bible stories, strictly for adults, would make great sermon material for the pastor who has the courage and wisdom to try. They surely are in the Bible for some important reason. You are warned to approach with caution.

The Holy River of God by Barry L. Callen
Today’s Christian leaders have come to new heights of frustration in seeking ways to revitalize their congregations and denominations. Welcome answers are now coming from an ancient Christian source, the Holiness tradition deeply rooted in the Bible and Wesleyan theology. The faith families now representing this tradition have joined together to form the Wesleyan Holiness Connection. Their stories, that of the Connection, and perspectives from this tradition on key issues of our time are all present in The Holy River of God.
“The Editor, Barry Callen, did an excellent job of recruiting expert authors who provide brief and readable chapters that provide insightful breadth and depth about the Wesleyan Holiness tradition. This book could be used for teaching about biblical holiness in churches as well as in academic institutions. No doubt, the book will become an invaluable historical and theological reference to the ongoing vibrancy and relevance of the Wesleyan Holiness tradition in ministry to the world.” – Don Thorson, Ph.D., Azusa Pacific University

Catch Your Breath by Barry Callen
A clear presentation of the biblical call for holiness in our time. The author, a mature Wesleyan scholar, is masterful in establishing the balance between the holy life offered by God’s grace and the intentional disciplines required of the believer. —Roger J. Green, Professor of Biblical Studies and Christian Ministries, Gordon College
A Good Walk Home by Larry Walkemeyer
“We all die physically. Most of us will walk with a friend or family member who is approaching that last moment of life. Rather than ignore, hide, or minimize the importance of the dying process, Walkemeyer helps us embrace this journey, reminding us of the thoughtful way that each of us may walk into God’s ..inal wholeness. A Good Walk Home is accessible, engaging, and gives relief to the inner anxiety about approaching death alone. It helps us, even in the face of death, celebrate the fullness of life!” —Kevin W. Mannoia, President of the Wesleyan Holiness Consortium
Color Me Holy by H. Harriman & B. Callen
Color me holy helps us refocus on the foundation of the Christian faith – the holiness of God. Rediscovering God’s holiness is core to living out the truth of God’s word. Callen and Harriman issue a corrective word to the body of Christ. Our walk must match our talk! We are being called to more than head knowledge, but to a life lived with focus on God’s holiness, the only way to ever find our own. —David Engbrecht, Sr Pastor, Nappanee Missionary Church, Nappanee, IN
Work that Matters by K. Brown & M. Wiese
This is an important book, one of the few on such a crucial topic. It makes a major contribution to how we Christians think about work. We must work to sustain ourselves, but how can we gain much more from our work than simply toiling to survive? We must not live with divided hearts. Holiness is based on gratefully and constructively acknowledging the presence of God in all that we are and do. —Dr. Rebecca A. Havens, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs and Professor of Economics, Point Loma Nazarene University
