In Denver we introduced you to these promising first-time authors, and we’re excited to share that their books are now available for purchase.

Jonathan S. Williams was three months into pastoring a new, evangelical church plant when his father confessed a secret: he was transgender. His father, Paul, a prominent evangelical pastor, soon became Paula, and Jonathan’s life and ministry went into a tailspin. Jonathan’s book is now availble at book retailers everywhere.

Lenny Duncan is the unlikeliest of pastors. Formerly incarcerated, he is now a black preacher in the whitest denomination in the United States: the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Shifting demographics and shrinking congregations make all the headlines, but Duncan sees something else at work—drawing a direct line between the church’s lack of diversity and the church’s lack of vitality. Lenny’s book is now available to pre-order on Amazon or through Fortress Press.

Many thanks to Fortress Press for their sponsorship of our 2018 W/ Collective National Gathering.
