HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 16, 2010 – Dr. Hal Warlick, Dean of the Chapel and Professor of Religion and Philosophy at High Point University, has recently published a collection of his sermons, titled “Peace Of Mind: Messages of Hope for a Troubled World.”
Those included in the collection are Warlick’s actual sermons given to students in the HPU Chapel and to the congregation of Blowing Rock Methodist Church in Blowing Rock, N.C., where he serves as Resident Minister each summer season.
With his words, Warlick has enlightened and inspired many on the HPU campus and hopes to spread his insights even further through the publication of his book.
Mary Ann Akers, reporter and staff writer for The Washington Post writes about the book: “Whether you’re a devout Christian or an entrenched skeptic, you will no doubt be inspired by Hal Warlick’s messages of basic human decency, kindness and fairness. With a compassionate Christian sensibility, Warlick touches on some of the most vexing social and economic issues of our time.”
The book’s cover is graced with the Bob Timberlake print “May.” A longtime friend of Warlick, Timberlake also provides a warm-hearted foreword for the book.
Individual copies of the book may be purchased at the Bob Timberlake Galleries in Lexington, N.C. and Blowing Rock, N.C., or from the Barnes and Noble bookstore on the HPU campus. Those interested in additional information should contact the High Point University Chapel office at (336) 841-9132.
