This fall the second book in the J. Philip Hogan World Missions Series—Apostolic Function in Twenty-First Century Missions byDr. Johnson—will be released by William Carey Library. The book highlights the need to focus missions efforts on unreached peoples.

Reverse Mentoring: How Young Leaders Can Transform the Church and Why We Should Let Them, byEarl Creps(D.Min. 2002), was released in September 2008 by Jossey-Bass and Leadership Network.

Lois Olena(D.Min. 2006), D.Min. project coordinator and visiting professor of practical theology and Jewish studies at AGTS, authored Stanley M. Horton: Shaper of Pentecostal Theology.

“Dr. Stanley Horton’s life falls squarely within the last century of Pentecostalism and has profoundly impacted it,” said Dr. Olena.

AGTS President Byron D. Klaus has noted that in Horton’s story, one sees what “a long obedience in the same direction can yield.”
