The Essentials of Suicide Prevention: A Blueprint for Churches
Dr. Karen Mason, professor of counseling

“People who struggle with suicide or who have lost loved ones to suicide wonder if the Bible or their church have anything relevant to say about suicide. This book will provide the resources needed to help prevent suicide in a church, even when a church does not want to start one more program.”

Becoming the Church: God’s People in Purpose and Power
Bishop Claude Alexander (DMin ’04), Chair of the Board of Trustees, adjunct professor of practical theology

“Many today have given up on church. But God has not and does not give up on the church. The church is God’s idea. And once we truly understand what God has in mind for his people, we can become who he wants us to be.”
