BEtWEEn ALLAH & jESUS

Peter Kreeft

W hat might Christians learn from a devout Muslim? Peter Kreeft explores this question through imagina-

tive conversations set at Boston College. An articulate Muslim student named ‘Isa challenges Christian students and profes- sors on issues ranging from prayer and worship to evolution and abortion, from war and politics to the nature of spiritual struggle and submission. While Kreeft believes Christians should not learn extremism or unitarian theology from Muslims, he does believe that we have much to learn about devoted religious practice and ethics.

EVA ngELISM & tHE SOVEREIgnty OF gOd

J. I. Packer

If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evan- gelize? or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all? J. I. Packer shows in this classic study how both of these attitudes are false. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God’s sover- eignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.

A CREdIBLE WItnESS

Brenda Salter McNeil

Presenting the story of the samaritan woman at the well as an image of gospel rec- onciliation, Brenda salter McNeil explains why our evangelism must not only intro- duce people to Jesus, but overcome barriers of gender, race and social status. “The good news brings us to God,” McNeil writes, “and it also brings life and healing to a broken, dying and divided world. Anything less is not the gospel.”

If we are going to effectively reach contemporary people—people for whom all “evi- dence” is relative—we need to get beyond the ideas and practices that are sacred to us but are not sacred to God. Rick Richardson provides fresh perspectives on relying on the Holy spirit, awakening spiritual interest in others, appealing to what they value and leading them into a transforming experience with God.

What does a healthy discipling relationship look like? What do you do together? In order to answer these and other questions, Alice Fryling gathered a team of experi- enced disciplemakers. Together they give us practical help in such areas as overcom- ing our fears about discipling others, beginning a discipling relationship, how to be a friend, learning how people change, modeling the Christian life, using scripture in disciplemaking, how to help a friend who hurts and helping others share their faith.

In Transforming Discipleship Greg ogden introduces his vision for discipleship, emphasizing that solutions will not be found in large-scale, finely-tuned, resource-heavy programs. Instead, ogden recovers Jesus’ method of accomplishing life change by investing in just a few people at a time.

Christopher A. Hall

Christopher Hall explores the patristic understanding of the sacraments, prayer and the rig- orous discipline of solitude. less about liturgy than worship in its corporate and individual dimensions, the book follows the fathers and early monastics through their experience of bap- tism, Eucharist, unceasing prayer and the “call to the desert.” In this survey of the spiritual life of worship Hall informs and challenges Christians in our conception of faithful living today.

“Christopher Hall helps us to read the church fathers contextually and not anachronistically. At the same time he manages to incorporate his own life experiences of worship in ways that make the book deeply personal as all prayer life must be. The result is a rich treasure trove of the prayers of the church.” —James M. Houston, founding principal of Regent College, Vancouver, and Emeritus Professor of spiritual Theology

Andrew Purves

In response to the growing rate of dying pastoral ministries, theologian Andrew Purves calls practicing clergy to radically sever attachments to personal ministries and take their place in Christ’s ongoing ministry in the world—even if it means Christ putting to death the ministries to which we cling so closely.

“I have been in Professor Purves’s classes as he lectured on this theology of pastoral ministry. I watched our seminarians move from dismay to embracing it as a surprising new vision of ministry. It was like witnessing the crucifixion and resurrection.”

We all know leadership is essential. But most shy away from it because we are unsure of our own abilities. Thus, in every sector of society, from families to businesses to churches, leadership roles remain empty.

As essential as leadership itself is the preparation beforehand—which is why Greg ogden and daniel Meyer have created this interactive guide to equip you for the task. Providing more than head knowledge, they focus on character formation and awareness of your unique experience.

designed for individual, partner or group work, Leadership Essentials is a vital prepara- tion tool for those who are led by Christ to lead others.

EMBOdyIng OUR FAItH

Tim Morey

“Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” Mohandas Gandhi famously critiqued the contemporary church with this pithy phrase.

Tim Morey had this challenge in mind as he oversaw the planting of life Covenant Church in Torrance, California, and he keeps it in mind as he coaches other church plant- ers in the Evangelical Covenant Church. In this book he brings his experience, combined with research and theological reflection, to help your church cultivate the irreducible qualities of an embodied apologetic: a community that is revealed by its faithful to be experiential, communal and enacted.

“This book is one of the best examples I have seen of contextualization—applying the changeless truth of the gospel to the deep spiritual needs of a changing culture.”

—dr. John Hutchison, professor of Bible exposition, Talbot school of Theology, Biola University, and founding member of life Covenant Church

CROSS-CULtURAL PARtnERSHIPS

Mary T. Lederleitner

one of the biggest challenges in global mission work is money—not merely the need for it, but working through crosscultural differences surrounding how funds are used and accounted for. How do we build financial partnerships for effective mission without foster- ing neocolonialism?

Mary lederleitner brings missiological and financial expertise to explain how global mis- sion efforts can be funded with integrity, mutuality and transparency. Bringing together social science research, biblical principles and on-the-ground examples, she presents best practices for handling funding and finance.

“Money is the defining and dividing issue in cross-cultural partnerships, and Mary Lederleitner has given us the essen- tial cultural insights and very practical tools and applications to navigate these treacherous waters.”

Rob Moll

Rob Moll recovers the Christian practice of dying well. For centuries Christians have prepared for the “good death” with particular rituals and spiritual disciplines that have directed the actions of both the living and the dying. In this pastorally sensitive book, Moll provides in-person reporting and interviews with hospice workers, doctors, nurses, bioethicists, family members and spiritual caregivers. This book restores a deeply Christian consolation: Because death is not the end, preparing to die helps us live.

“Every seminarian and parish minister should read this book. Rob Moll recovers the Christian tradition's lost teaching on preparing for death. He then offers theologically sound guidance for families and clergy as they serve the dying and then honor their legacy. Indispensable.”

Matthew Soerens & Jenny Hwang

Immigration is one of the most complicated issues of our time. Christians find themselves torn between the desire to uphold laws and the call to minister to the vulnerable. World Relief staffers Matthew soerens and Jenny Hwang put a human face on the issue through stories of immigrants in and out of the system. Accounting for both history and policy, they challenge myths and show the limitations of the current immigration system. They propose immigration reform that is compassionate, sensible and just, and offer concrete ways for local churches to welcome our immigrant neighbors.

CULtURE MAKIng

Andy Crouch

Too often, believers have merely reacted to culture: consuming it, copying it, critiquing it. Andy Crouch suggests that God’s call to Christians is far more enterprising: we are to cre- ate culture. Grounded in the cultural message that is central to the Bible, Culture Making is a rallying cry for a new generation of creative Christians eager to make something of their world.

Jim Belcher

Bringing insight from both sides of the debate between traditional and emerging church models, Jim Belcher paints a picture of an alternate church, what C. s. lewis called deep church: a missional church committed to both tradition and culture, valuing innovation in worship, arts and community but also creeds and confessions.

“Jim Belcher shows that we don’t have to choose between orthodox evangelical doctrine on the one hand, and cultural engagement, creativity and commitment to social justice on the other. This is an important book.”

They seek a place for Christian claims in the public forum and evaluate the strengths of arguments for atheism or naturalism.

“Johnson and Reynolds are provocateurs in the best sense of that

This is not another apologetic response to

Along the way, you’ll be surprised at how frequently scholars have misrepresented the movement.

“Darwinians fired away throughout 2009, the 150th anniversary of on the origin of species, but could not kill the concept of intelligent design. This book is the first salvo of the next 150 years.

Douglas Groothuis

The concept of truth as absolute, objective and universal has undergone serious deteriora- tion in recent years. Postmoderns see truth as inseparable from culture, psychology, race and gender. What factors have accelerated this decay of truth? How does this new view compare and contrast with a Christian understanding?

While postmodernism contains some truthful insights, douglas Groothuis sees its basic tenets as intellectually flawed and hostile to Christian views. In this spirited presentation of a solid, biblical and logical perspective, Groothuis unveils how truth has come under attack and how it can be defended in the vital areas of theology, apologetics, ethics and the arts.

SOUL-SHAPIng SMALL gROUPS

Kim V. Engelmann

A dmitting her own reticence to invest in a weeknight small group, Kim Engelmann posed to herself a difficult ques-

tion: Is it small groups that are the problem or the way we do small groups? In this book she offers a new format for groups that gives authentic spiritual community a chance. she chal- lenges the compartmentalization of Bible study, prayer and even fun, and offers steps towards creating a new, experiential framework.

Gerald R. McDermott

W ho are the church’s great theologians? What was special about their teaching? What can we learn from them today? Gerald Mcdermott

has written this book for those who want a solid introduction that is chal- lenging, but not overwhelming. Provocative, but satisfying. And not too long. Mcdermott not only informs us about eleven pivotal theologians from origen to Karl Barth, but helps us sort out what is of continuing value today. Here’s your chance to think with “the greats” about God.

tHE LIVIng PAUL

Anthony C. Thiselton

The apostle Paul has long engendered mixed feelings in readers. But as a student of Paul’s letters and a devotee of his gospel, Anthony Thiselton is an unabashed admirer of this apostle so many love to hate. Thiselton cleans the lens and sharpens the focus to give us snapshots of Paul’s life, mission and thought. Whatever your level of knowledge and expe- rience of Paul, you will find this a nuanced and inspiring portrait, rendered by the deft hand of a master.

“In the hands of a master scholar and teacher, Paul’s letters come alive for a wide readership. This is an outstanding, reliable guide to the great apostle’s life and thought, the fruit of over 40 years of engagement with the thought of the intellectual giant among the first followers of Jesus.”
