Rev. Dennis Crump, ACHS, LWC graduate, has new book out
Special ColumbiaMagazine.com book review
Dennie Crump, a graduate of Adair County High School and Lindsey Wilson College, is the author of a new 168-page book telling the story of the tabernacle in the wilderness. Reverend Dennis G. Crump, formerly of Columbia, has written Approaching the Holy: A Season in God's House, his recent highly anticipated book on the tabernacle.
He will be holding a book signing at "The Book Store" in Campbellsville, KY on November 23, 2007, from 1:00pmET/noonCT to 3pmET/2:00CT.
Rev. Crump is the son of historian and former Daily Statesman and Adair County News editor Gordon B. Crump of Columbia, KY.
He was formerly the minister of Union Chapel and Hayes Chapel United Methodist Churches in Russell County and the Sulphur Well Circuit of the United Methodist Church in Metcalfe and Green Counties. He is now pastor of the Bedford United Methodist Church in Trimble County.
He is a graduate of Western Kentucky University. He also completed a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and is now pursuing a Doctor of Missiology degree at Asbury Theological Seminary.
He is a veteran of the U. S. Navy nuclear submarine service and is married to the former Kathy Bottom, daughter of Colonel and Mrs. James Bottom of Russell Springs.
"I found the story of the tabernacle in the wilderness a fascinating one that is not always emphasized in Christian teachings. I hope readers will, too. I believe the deep symbolism of the tabernacle can help us understand and appreciate important aspects of Christianity," the author said. "We need to understand its meaning and significance."
The book went on sale recently from Amazon.com and is also available through local bookstores.
Book reviewer Phyllis Rszesowski said of the volume: "This three-month devotional book, though fairly simple to read, is more difficult when it comes to living out its penetrating concepts.
The reader is given tools from Crump's own study and revelation about the tabernacle with its many spiritual lessons foreshadowing the person and ministry of Christ and the new covenant we received in Him."
Joanna Williams, a Nashville librarian, said she is placing it in her church library because she feels it will also appeal to young people.
