Director of Church Planting, Winfield Bevins New Book “Ever Ancient, Ever New” on Pre-Order
Winfield Bevins, author, artist, pastor, teacher and director of church planting at Asbury Seminary, releases Ever Ancient, Ever New on March 5. His book tells the story of young adults who have embraced Christian liturgy and how it has impacted their lives. His book is available on Amazon.com and wherever books are sold.
“For many years now, the church in North America has heard about the steady flow of young adults leaving the church,” Winfield said. “I wrote Even Ancient, Ever New to tell the story of a growing movement among young Christians who are embracing historic and liturgical Christianity rather than leaving church. I hope that throughout the book readers will also find ways to explore and engage with the practices in meaningful ways within their own lives.”
Ever Ancient Ever New explores why and how liturgy is beckoning younger Christians to a deeper experience of Jesus and what types of churches foster this “convergence” of old and new.
“There is a hunger among this generation to recover the historic roots of the Christian faith for discipleship and mission,” Alan Hirsch, founder of 100Movements, Forge Mission Training Network, and Future Travelers, said. “Winfield Bevins’ new book offers a clear and compelling account of why young adults across North America are embracing liturgy. If you want to learn more about this movement and why it matters, this book is for you.”
Winfield is passionate about helping others connect to the roots of the Christian faith for discipleship and mission. He frequently speaks at conferences on a variety of topics and is a regular adjunct professor at several seminaries. Having grown up in a free-church background, Winfield eventually found his spiritual home in the Anglican tradition, but freely draws wisdom from all church traditions.
Winfield has authored several books, including Church Planting Revolution, Grow at Home: A Beginner’s Guide to Family Discipleship, Our Common Prayer: A Field Guide to the Book of Common Prayer, and Creed: Connect to the Essentials of Historic Christian Faith.
He and his wife Kay have three beautiful girls Elizabeth, Anna Belle, and Caroline, and live in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky.
