Dunning, Cunningham honored by Wesleyan Theological Society
Friday, March 12, 2004
H. Ray Dunning, professor emeritus of Trevecca Nazarene University, and Floyd Cunningham, academic dean of Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary, each received prestigious awards at the March meeting of the Wesleyan Theological Society.

Dunning was given the society's Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the academy and larger church. Dunning is perhaps best known for his full-scale systematic theology book, Grace, Faith and Holiness. Azusa Pacific University theologian, Craig Keen, warmly recounted many of Dunning's important achievements and scholarship for the benefit of society members.

Floyd Cunningham received the society's Smith-Wynkoop Book Award, named after deceased Wesleyan scholars Timothy Smith and Mildred Bangs Wynkoop. The Wesleyan Theological Society bestowed this honor upon Cunningham for his recently published work, Holiness Abroad: Nazarene Missions in Asia. Church of the Nazarene archivist, Stan Ingersol, described Cunningham's book as astute, evenhanded, and accurate.

The Lifetime Achievement Award and Smith-Wynkoop Book Award are given annually. The Wesleyan Theological Society will meet again March 3-5, 2005, at Seattle Pacific University.
