Biblical and historical records show that women have been involved in ministerial leadership alongside men from the earliest days. In Faithful to the Call, Dr. Carla Sunberg brings together a group of scholars, pastors, and ministry leaders who expertly make the Wesleyan case for women in ministry. From the Old Testament to the New, from the days of John Wesley to the founding days of the Church of the Nazarene, and all the way up to today, women have been integral in carrying out the mission of God and discipling others to do the same. The authors and chapters in this book offer ample historical, biblical, theological, and practical evidence for why women, like men, should be Faithful to the Call when God gifts us and then invites us to participate in God's grand story. Faithful to the Call contributors include: Rev. Dr. Nina Gunter, Rev. Dr. Carla D. Sunberg, Rev. Dr. Diane Leclerc, Rev. Dr. Jacob Lett, Rev. Dr. Svetlana Khobnya, Rev. Dr. C. Jeanne Orjala Serr o, Rev. Dr. Sarah Coleson Derck, Rev. Selena Freeman, Rev. Phumzile Phago, Rev. Cara Shonamon, Rev. Dr. Tammy Carter, and Rev. Dr. David Downs.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
