    A Philosopher's Bridge to Faith

    by Joshua Rasmussen

    Do you value reason, science, and independent thinking, yet you hope there could be a greater purpose to the universe?

    Bloody, Brutal, and Barbaric?

    Wrestling with Troubling War Texts

    by William J. Webb and Gordon K. Oeste

    Christians cannot ignore the intersection of religion and violence. In our own Scriptures, war texts that appear to approve of genocidal killings and war rape raise hard questions about biblical ethics and the character of God. Have we missed something in our traditional readings? Identifying a spectrum of views on biblical war texts, Webb and Oeste pursue a middle path using a hermeneutic of incremental, redemptive-movement ethics.

    But What About God's Wrath?

    The Compelling Love Story of Divine Anger

    by Kevin Kinghorn
    With Stephen Travis

    How can a loving God also be a God of wrath? Using a philosophically informed line of argument and a careful study of the relevant biblical texts, Kinghorn and Travis show how these two aspects of God's character can be reconciled. Instead of assuming that God's just response to people is incompatible with a loving response, the authors instead view God's love as a strictly essential divine attribute, with justice as a derivative of love.

    In Search of the Common Good

    Christian Fidelity in a Fractured World

    Foreword by Timothy Keller

    Common life in our society is in decline—our communities are disintegrating, our public discourse is hateful, and economic inequalities are widening.

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