VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 7/2/14)—Judson Press announces 6 new books to be released this summer and fall. The first is a Christian education title, and will be followed by titles featuring deaf ministry, spirituality, pastors and politics, career discernment, and millennials in ministry.
Fostering Faith: Teaching and Learning in the Christian Church by Denise Janssen, Diane Janssen Hemmen & Sallie Verner is a new resource for educational ministry that will help strengthen church spiritual formation and discipleship programs. It will hit store shelves in August.
Another new church resource is Millennials in Ministry, by Jolene Cassellius Erlacher, scheduled to be in stores in September. This work is based upon a qualitative study of young adults and provides insights on engaging and empowering them in ministry.
Lori Buck offers a unique resource that provides a thorough introduction to Deaf culture and practical guidelines for developing a deaf ministry. Signs of Love: A Guide for Deaf Ministry will be out in September.
What’s Your Function: Working It Out With God, compliments the 2012 release, Help Wanted: Devotions for Job Seekers. This new work by Aaron Basko releases in November and offers three keys for discerning the career that fulfills your function:
• Purpose—what you were born to do
• Inspiration—what you love to do
• Earnings—how you can make a living
What’s Your Function keeps readers engaged with interactive activities, quizzes, and exercises to facilitate the discovery process.
Vital Spirit, Vital Service: Spirituality that Works is the newest volume to the “Living Church” series. Author Trinette V. McCray urges the people of God to seek a vital spirituality that not merely contemplates and withdraws from the world, but a spirituality that inspires us to answer Jesus’ call to service and social justice.
Out in October, Pulpit & Politics: Separation of Church & State in the Black Church by best-selling author Marvin A. McMickle, seeks to provoke an emergence of a new generation of black preacher-politicians who will move beyond spiritual leadership and into advocacy and social justice.
