    How Books Help Our Churches and Neighborhoods Flourish

    by C. Christopher Smith
    Foreword by Scot McKnight

    We have been created to live and work faithfully in community, and that involves two interwoven threads: learning and action. C. Christopher Smith explores the practice of reading and, in his words, "how we can read together in ways that drive us deeper into action."

  • As a publishing house, IVP desires to speak thoughtfully and in a balanced but bold manner into questions on the integration of faith, discipleship, and politics; on what constitutes the common good and building a just society—not only in election years, but every year. Books are vehicles for promoting liberty, for shedding light on darkness. In a time when many of us are distracted by clickbait and popular opinion, books still have a tremendous impact. Here's to reading—widely, thoughtfully, carefully, deeply.

Only through that vision can we truly work together for the common good.
