About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

“What Is the Church?” This question guides the Christian in understanding the proper relation that should exist between the individual believer and the institution. The Church is never personal property or a Private Club. The Church is always the association of those who have experienced a personal relationship to Jesus Christ, and are committed to living a life faith despite contrary circumstances.

“Are You Expecting?” is the question that challenges the Christian believer to live a life of constant awareness of what God is doing in the world, and to remain ready to respond when called to unique and special service.

“Finally, Farewell” is the word releasing the baton of service to the trusted hands of others, after a well run leg of the relay race of ministry. These and other sermons challenge both clergy and laity to remain alert to recognize and respond to the many seasons and celebrations of ministry.

Deftly constructed at 196 pages, What is the Church?: Occasional and Seasonal Sermons for the Busy Pastor is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the American - African American category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, What is the Church? meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95.

Additionally, What is the Church? can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
