    Welcoming Justice

    God's Movement Toward Beloved Community

    by Charles Marsh and John M. Perkins
    Foreword by Philip Yancey

    We have seen progress in recent decades toward Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream of beloved community.

Historian and theologian Charles Marsh partners with veteran activist John Perkins to chronicle God's vision for a more equitable and just world. Perkins reflects ...

    A Spiritual and Neurobiological Redemption of Desire

    We are people of desire.

  • Centered-Set Church: Discipleship and Community Without Judgmentalism, By Mark D. Baker

    Centered-Set Church

    Discipleship and Community Without Judgmentalism

    by Mark D. Baker

    Christians can be adept at drawing lines, determining what it means to be "a good Christian" and judging those who stray out of bounds. Other times they erase all the lines in favor of a vague and inoffensive faith. Both impulses can come from positive intentions, but either can lead to stunted spiritual life and harmful relationships. Is there another option?

  • Reframing Paul: Conversations in Grace  Community, By Mark Strom

    Reframing Paul

    Conversations in Grace Community

    by Mark Strom

    The Greco-Roman world was shaped by ideals and abstract ideas. The Apostle Paul left them behind. But they continue to shape evangelical teaching and practice. This picture contradicts the common impression of Paul as an abstract theologian, someone who wrestled with deep theological doctrine while hovering six feet above everyday reality. But in fact, it was the philosopher's of Paul's day--and ...

    Redeemed Sexuality

    12 Sessions for Healing and Transformation in Community

    by Andrew A. Boa
    Foreword by William M. Struthers

    Sexual brokenness permeates our culture and has found its way into the church. Even though Christians are called to value and celebrate sexuality as sacred and good, it is often a source of fear, shame, or secret sin. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Healthy sexuality concerns what we pursue, not just what we avoid, so Redeemed Sexuality invites emerging adults to ...
