Few people can claim careers in two biblical professions: minister and tax collector. In his captivating memoir, Adventures of an Ordinary Man, William Lee Goff shares the triumphs and tragedies of his life as both a Presbyterian minister and an IRS Revenue Agent. Goff writes unpretentiously with deep humanity and subtle humor about his life's adventures: learning to play the cello from a freedom fighter; overcoming his fears to become an amateur stage actor; and traveling in South Africa, Israel, Russia and Denmark. Adventures of an Ordinary Man is a compelling and rewarding read. Although a native of St. Louis, Missouri, William Lee Goff spent his formative years in Los Angeles, California. He earned a bachelor's degree in English from UCLA and then went on to Fuller Theological Seminary where he completed a Doctor of Ministry degree. Goff has had dual careers, one as an ordained Presbyterian minister who served as pastor in churches in California, Colorado, and Idaho. His alter ego had a nearly 25-year career with the IRS. Goff lives with his wife, Tatyana, in Southern California.

It can be challenging for small churches to have a positive presence in their communities, especially when pursuing creative ways to spread the gospel. And it can be difficult for small groups with even smaller budgets to stand out, so what can a small church do to attract and inspire young believers? In A Dramatic Ministry for Small Churches, author Holly Langster shares a collection of inspiring and entertaining dramatic plays that are perfect for a small church that needs something to engage and encourage its attendees—especially kids! Noticing that there was nothing out there for her small church, Holly brought drama into the church life and used it to build a community ministry. She offers several scripts and helpful tips for anyone starting a drama program in their own church. It doesn’t take a big church to perform a big play, and A Dramatic Ministry for Small Churches can help small churches discover a new and dramatic way to excite young believers about the gospel message. And as more and more people get involved, these small churches will grow and grow, inspiring the next generation and bringing more people to Christ.

This collection of essays provides the first in-depth examination of camp as it relates to a wide variety of twentieth and twenty-first century music and musical performances. Located at the convergence of popular and queer musicology, the book provides new research into camp’s presence, techniques, discourses, and potential meanings across a broad spectrum of musical genres, including: musical theatre, classical music, film music, opera, instrumental music, the Broadway musical, rock, pop, hip-hop, and Christmas carols. This significant contribution to the field of camp studies investigates why and how music has served as an expressive and political vehicle for both the aesthetic characteristics and the receptive modes that have been associated with camp throughout twentieth and twenty-first-century culture.
