The Nominee: A Novel by Michael Kinnamon
Launch date: May 21, 2024
Matthew McAvoy’s surprising nomination to lead his Christian denomination is, at first, exhilaration — the apex of a career in ministry, education, and leadership. Soon, though, that joy is undercut when a member of the church calls attention to Matthew’s support for persons who are gay or lesbian. What follows is an eight-month ordeal, challenging Matthew and providing new awareness of what the gospel demands. Author Michael Kinnamon writes from his own experiences as a denominational leader, theologian, and professor.
