    Reflections on Affluence, Autonomy, Safety, and Power

    by D. L. Mayfield

    Affluence, autonomy, safety, and power—the central values of the American dream. But are they compatible with Jesus' command to love our neighbor as ourselves?

    Rediscipling the White Church

    From Cheap Diversity to True Solidarity

    by David W. Swanson
    Foreword by Brenda Salter McNeil

    Before white churches can pursue diversity, we must first address the faulty discipleship that has led to our segregation in the first place. Pastor David Swanson proposes that we rethink our churches' habits, or liturgies, and imagine together holistic, communal discipleship practices that can reform us as members of Christ's diverse body.

    Reclaiming Public Faith for the Common Good

    by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove

    Christians and the religious Right have misused Scripture to consolidate power, stoke fears, and defend against enemies. Highlighting the stories of people on the frontlines, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove explores how religious culture wars have misrepresented Christianity at the expense of the poor, and how listening to marginalized communities can help us rediscover God's vision for faith in public life.

    Rediscovering Scripture's Vision for Women

    Fresh Perspectives on Disputed Texts

    by Lucy Peppiatt
    Foreword by Scot McKnight

    Does God call women to serve as equal partners in marriage and as leaders in the church? With careful exegetical work, Lucy Peppiatt considers relevant passages in Ephesians, Colossians, 1 Peter, 1 Timothy, and 1 Corinthians. There she finds a story of God releasing women alongside men into all forms of ministry, leadership, work, and service on the basis of character and gifting, rather than biological sex.

    Why Ministry in Forgotten Communities Matters

    by Stephen Witmer
    Foreword by Raymond C Ortlund, Jr.

    Christian ministries increasingly prioritize urban areas—big cities and suburbs are considered more strategic, more influential, and more desirable places to live and work. As a ministry strategy, focusing on big places makes sense. But the gospel of Jesus is often unstrategic. Pastor Stephen Witmer, using helpful stories and practical advice, lays out an integrated theological vision for small-place ministry today.
