Write what disturbs you, what you fear, what you have not been willing to speak about. Be willing to be split open. – Natalie Goldberg

Tracey Lewis-Giggetts has done a marvelous job of opening the conversation on the crucial issue of what it means to love our neighbors. This is not a peripheral issue but one that gets to the heart of the gospel and our identity as Holiness people. I appreciated how she was not naïve in her critique or in her suggestions. Her observations are from her own experience. The book challenged me to be more courageous in the ongoing journey of what it means to contextualize the gospel to all people. —Dr. Dana Robert Hicks, Professor of Missional Leadership, Northwest Nazarene University
Published by Beacon Hill Press, The Integrated Church challenges the discussion of the church’s relevance in the culture by helping church leaders understand that while it is the responsibility of the church to denounce sin, it also the responsibility of the church to be relevant enough in society in order to achieve the Great Commission. Because it has been said that the “how” of ministry is in some ways determined by the “who, when, and where” of culture, this book assists church leaders in understanding the variety of people they are called serve.
