NEW BOOK by our Executive Director Stan Moody

Have We Traded the Power of the Gospel for the American Dream? God is calling His children to live authentic, relevant lives, where the power of the Gospel, the peace, security, wisdom, direction, and joy of a life transformed, become a living witness to those around us. But what happens when we sometimes subtly, even unknowingly, exchange the truth of the Gospel for a pursuit of the American Dream? We like to dress up our desires with Bible verses and Christian sayings, but somewhere along the way, we find ourselves pursuing something other than God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. This book provides a wake-up call to devoted Christ-followers to return to the simplicity of the Good News, the saving, transforming power of God to change a life for eternity. Whether you fall on the political left or right, consider yourself conservative or liberal, focus more on grace or works, this book is written to both encourage and challenge you, to stir your soul and perhaps ruffle your feathers. In the end, this is a message that will point you towards spiritual renewal!

Columbia Street Press is publishing a new book by our founder and President Stan Moody called "I've Met the Enemy". 

“If you find yourself confused and sometimes even despondent over white evangelical commitment to reconciling the Kingdom of God with the American Dream of prosperity and success, this book is for you. There is great hope for your life through your relationship with God and with His people. You will recognize yourself in my experience, and when you do, you will share my hope.”

Dr. Stan Moody, President of Columbia Street Project (CSP) and Janet Robbins, owner of North Wind Publishing, announced today a partnership to create the publishing arm of CSP, Columbia Street Press. Its first publication was Wisdom for Our Sons: Straight Talk from a Street Cop. “Author Curtis Ostrander has broken through an invisible shield in American family life with his plea to restore civility by raising our sons to be thoughtful, sensitive and God-fearing”, says Moody. “He has learned through his experience as a career street cop in upstate NY, dealing with juvenile offenders, that the single most crucial factor in the future success or failure of our sons is the impact of a father. This fits right into the mission of CSP, ‘When faith gets down to business’. Church leaders and Christian parents are encouraged to scour this book for a path forward to responsible family life. Columbia Street Project is an outreach ministry of Columbia Street Baptist Church in Bangor, ME with a separate 501(c)(3) status.Proceeds from the sale of this book go to support the mission of CSP and the author's non-profit "Dads for a Day" Book may be purchased at
