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.

Creative Worship Leading Without A Band

When you don't always have a band handy, you learn to improvise. Even when there are no other musicians to pull from in a particular setting, I still think we can strive to be artful and creative in our music leading.  Here's my attempt to play guitar and piano together as an example using the song Overcome by Jon Egan. We will play it with the band this Sunday at Springfield Naz, but in this setting when the band wasn't around I wanted to show an alternative way that this could be done without a band,with a little practice.

The Psalms: you’ve heard them read in church, adapted into worship songs and maybe glanced through them once or twice. But have you ever asked yourself what the message is behind this moving yet enigmatic book? Have you ever let the Psalms truly speak to you, or, to put it more accurately, let God speak to you through them? In Out of the Depths, singer and song-writer Rick Lee James invites you to do precisely that. Using a unique blend of personal stories, scholarship and pastoral insight, Rick walks you through the Book of Psalms in 10 deep and powerful chapters. He invites you to learn more, feel more and, above all, hear from God through the Psalms more than you ever have before.

Whether you’ve read the Psalms a hundred times or aren’t familiar with them at all, Out of the Depths is a book that will challenge you and help you to look at the Bible’s prayer book, the Book of Psalms, in an entirely new light.
