Pastor Bob’s book Unfettered Spirit: Spiritual Gifts for the New Great Awakening (Energion Pubs., 2013), was named to the Academy of Parish Clergy’s Annual Top Books list. The book and its author was recognized at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Parish Clergy held in Racine, WI in April.
The book has been recognized by a future Perry Gresham lecturer (Carol Howard Merritt):
In Unfettered Spirit, Dr. Robert D. Cornwall roots through the fertile soil of his traditions and unearths the gifts that it has to offer. He then sets the table for Progressive Christians, and gives us the nourishment that we need to move into a New Great Awakening. Throughout the pages of Unfettered Spirit, Dr. Cornwall hosts this banquet with the knowledge of a well-read academic and the wisdom of a seasoned pastor. –Rev. Carol Howard Merritt, Author of Tribal Church andReframing Hope
And a past Perry Gresham lecturer (Amos Yong):
Bob Cornwall here shows that the gifts of the Spirit are not owned by the pentecostal-charismatic wing of the church. Rather, the time is now for mainline churches to reappropriate the full spectrum of the spiritual gifts for their contemporary tasks. The result may include the sought for revitalization of the historic Protestant tradition as it seeks to bear appropriate witness to the living Christ in a pluralistic world.
–Amos Yong, Ph.D. Dean, Divinity School, Regent University Author of Spirit of Love
