Preaching about the good news in Christ has been Dr. Massey’s life passion. He has studied it as a craft, taught it as a calling, written about it as an accomplished professional, and practiced it as few others can. His voice has echoed from ecumenical pulpits around the world, on radio and television, in seminary chapels of numerous denominations, in countless lecture halls, and from his own urban pulpit in Detroit for a quarter of a century.

Emerging from the Wesleyan/Holiness tradition of Christianity, Dr. Massey soon came to belong to the whole church. A world-class pianist, he answered God’s call to abandon the concert stage and mount the pulpit to share the joy of heaven’s music. Rarely does one voice speak with equal wisdom on fields as diverse and demanding as Bible interpretation, Christian education, inspired preaching, seminary education, and ministries of reconciliation.

A friend of Martin Luther King, Jr., and deeply impacted by the person and preaching of Howard Thurman, Dr. James Earl Massey also has been to God’s mountain, heard from the Divine, and now shares with all prepared to listen.

Views from the Mountain is collaboratively published by Aldersgate and Anderson University Press.

I suspect that the signal place of James Earl Massey in the academy and in church has been maintained through the integrity of his being and living. He has sought to live the life about which he has taught, preached, and written. This he has done, leaning on the Lord, with elegance, eloquence, and grace.

Robert H. Reardon, longtime president of Anderson University

The modalities of music—rhythm, pitch, tone, phrasing, cadence, melody, mood—also apply to the work of the preacher, and James Earl Massey is a master of them all.

Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University
