Keeping the Faith: Essays in Memory of Roger H. Prentice
The Rev. Dr. Roger Prentice was a member of Wolfville Baptist Church. He died suddenly last spring. A chaplain in Acadia University from 1985 to 2007, Roger is sorely missed by many friends in Canada and across the world. Roger would have had his 80th birthday this summer and unbeknownst to him, before his death, some of Roger’s friends were already working on essays for a Festschrift to mark the occasion. At his death, all of the contributors to the volume felt that it would be fitting to make the book a memorial volume.
Edited by Paul Harris and Karen Smith, the volume is being published by Mercer University Press and includes essays on the themes that were close to Roger’s heart: Baptist Identity, Theology and Spirituality, Acadia University and Maritime Connections, Worship, Preaching and Ministry, and Engaging with Others in the Church and in the Wider World. Contributors to the volume include friends in Canada and the UK: Hon. Kelvin K. Ogilvie, Patricia Townsend, the late Bill Brackney, Evan Colford, Scott Kindred-Barnes, Karen Smith, Barry M. Moody, Howard John Whidden, Carol Anne Janzen, Zachary Cooper, Robert Ellis, J. Daniel Gibson, Barry Morrison, Paul Harris, Allison A. Trites, David Csinos, Lydia Hood, Sir Malcolm Evans, and Mark Parent.
To mark the publication of the book and to remember Roger, a special event is to be held at Wolfville Baptist Church on Saturday, September 30, 2023. Dr Scott M. Gibson, Professor of Preaching at Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary, will be the guest lecturer and a reception will be held to mark the publication of the book. It is hoped that we can offer a discounted price for the volume to those who order in advance. If you would like more details about reserving a copy, please contact Karen Smith (email: SmithK2@cardiff.ac.uk) by June 15, 2023. [Please note this June deadline is earlier than the date listed in the Spring CABF Bulletin.]
