& Book Company

Innovative Publisher of Quality Books by Creative Authors

Parson's Porch & Book Publishing is a book publishing company with a double focus.  We focus on the needs of creative writers who need a professional publisher to turn their words into books, & we also focus on the needs of others by turning their books into bread by sharing our profits with those who are homeless and displaced by meeting their basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and safety.

Vulnerable Embrace is a book that celebrates the worship of God through a unique collection of 21st century sermons by co-pastor “clergy couple” Elana Levy and Lucus Keppel.

Within, you will find:

·       stories of love, loss, and camping  

·       plays and dialogues between Bible characters who never could have met any other way

·       connections between science, history and scripture that reveal more harmony than you might expect

·       a love of the Biblical languages of Hebrew and Greek that helps bring great depth and refreshing clarity to the work.

Elana and Lucus are pastors in their first decade of congregational ministry. Their collection of sermons gives us a glimpse at the basics for “new church,” “next church,” and “fresh expressions.”

These sermons reflect the unique backgrounds, academic training, and non-church work experience of Elana and Lucus. They fold careful Biblical research, and relevant theological reflection into a mix of popular culture and current events to meet the spiritual and emotional needs of their congregation. Even their word-studies are charming. In other words, these are really engaging, witty people who preach thought-provoking and helpful sermons.
