Renovating Holiness: The New Book

Renovating Holiness Cover Page

It is my great honor to be one of over a hundred leaders selected to write essays for a book called Renovating Holiness. I’m so grateful to editors, Thomas Jay Oord and Joshua Broward, not only for including me among these amazing leaders from around the world, but also for taking the time to put together such an unprecedented and needed resource for holiness denominations. In trying to figure out the best way to review a book like this with so many diverse authors, I decided the best thing to do might be to let the authors speak for themselves by including some snapshots from some of my very favorite selections of the book. I would encourage anyone to read this book but I especially would recommend it to young people who have become disheartened with the Church of the Nazarene, wondering if there is a place for them in a holiness denomination in the 21st century. I believe these essays will strengthen our journey as a follower of Christ and help us discover where we are as a denomination. As a minister in the Church of the Nazarene, I give you my highest recommendation.

These excerpts are by no means the only great parts of the book, they are simply moments that stood out to me while I was reading Renovating Holiness. I also included the first page of the essay I wrote, hoping that all of these excerpts will make you want to read more. These excerpts were written by

Brannon Hancock, Catherine Lebese, Chad Maxson, Craig Drurey, Dick Eugenio, Donnie Miller, Emily JoAnn Haynes, Frank Mills, Greg Arthur, Hank Spaulding, Jacob Lett, Jamie Gates, Janine King, Jason Rowinski, Joe Gorman, Jon Middendorf, Megan Pardue, Michael Scarlett, Myra Oomit, Nathan Napier, Rick Lee James, RJ Strickland, Rusty Brian, Ryan Patrick McGlaughlin, Ryan Scott, and Thomas Jay Oord.

You can also hear a conversation I had with editor Joshua Broward on Episode #132 of the Voices In My Head Podcast.

Tracking For The New Record Begins This Week

Good Day,
I hope that this update finds you well. The advent season is upon us again and with it, as always, is much busyness. In addition to the normal Yuletide events this year, This year I add recording a new album to the schedule. This Thursday I will begin my drive to Nashville Tennessee and on Friday morning we will begin tracking the new album. I am so excited about this as I’m sure you are well aware. I have dreamed of an opportunity like this for so many years and God is finally open the door. I am so blessed to work with Lifeway Worship, Producer Craig Adams, A list musicians, and the top engineers in Nashville on this project.

I believe we have come up with a title that encapsulates this project. We think the title will be Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations. I am so blessed by so many of you given how did your resources to make this album the reality. Make God bless you in this holiday season and renew your faith in Christ. I covet your prayers as we begin this recording process and I ask you to pray for others will be renewed in their faith as a result of this endeavor. While we want to make great music, the goal is to reveal Jesus and the present reality of the kingdom of God.

I’ll do my best to update you on line through Facebook and Twitter (@RickLeeJames) while I am in Nashville with pictures and more as I am able. I feel very blessed today and I can’t wait to share the songs with you as a complete collection.

Blessings,
Rick Lee James
