Walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death by Kathryn Cunningham

Kathryn Cunnigham’s eight-year-old son, Dallin, fell from a slide at school and hit his head on the frozen ground. On the evening of the next day, his soul slipped quietly through the veil.

Walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death is Kathryn’s account of what filled those two days: the sorrow, the tears, the decisions, and most importantly, the miracles that came before and after. It is a witness of the awful inevitability of death, that mountain that looms over this valley of mortality. It is a testimony of the loving mercy of our Savior Jesus Christ, the only one who can warm and guide us when that mountain’s oppressive shadow darkens our path. In the days of Kathryn’s deepest distress, she tested the words of our prophet that we should seek and expect miracles and found they were true.

This study of the growth of the Church of the Nazarene traces the denomination’s doctrinal roots to the English Reformation and then explores the church’s historical, intellectual, and doctrinal development.Giving special attention to the church’s distinctive belief in entire sanctification and emphasis on education, the authors colorfully retell the story of the church from its humble origins in Pilot Point, Texas, to its expansion into an international community reaching the world through a warm-hearted faith.

A Brief History of Saints follows the rise of the cult of saints in Christianity from its origin in the age of the martyrs down to the present day.
