Karl Barth and the Future of Evangelical Theology

Christian Collins Winn, Editor

*** $2.99 ***

”Evangelical orthodoxy is regenerated in this volume by a long-awaited development: an orthopraxic and orthopathic interpretation of and engagement with the legacy of Karl Barth. This constructive trajectory derives especially from a ferment of contemporary pietist, Wesleyan, and Pentecostal interfaces with what has been predominantly a Reformed playground. The landscape where Barth studies intersect with evangelical theology, and the nature of both conversations, has been permanently altered.” –Amos Yong

Lives of the Trees: An Uncommon History

Diana Wells

*** $2.99 ***

“Investigating the names and meanings of trees, Wells also uncovers their fascinating legends and lore: At one time, a worm found in a hazelnut meant ill fortune; Rowan trees were planted in churchyards to prevent the dead from rising from their graves; Greek arrows were soaked in deadly yew; and Shakespeare’s witches in Macbeth used “Gall of goat and slips of yew” to make their lethal brew. One bristlecone pine, at about forty-seven hundred years old, is thought to be the oldest living plant on earth.


Oriented to Faith: Transforming the Conflict over Gay Relationships

Tim Otto

*** $2.99 ***

“Tim Otto is the rare voice in the church’s conversation about human sexuality who gives me hope that despite all the pain and confusion, we who bear with one another may learn what it means to be Christian.”–Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove


Placemaker: Cultivating Places of Comfort, Beauty, and Peace

Christie Purifoy

*** $1.99 ***

PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and get
the Audiobook for only $7.49!!!

In Placemaker, Christie Purifoy invites us to notice our soul’s desire for beauty, our need to create and to be created again and again. As she reflects on the joys and sorrows of two decades as a placemaker and her recent years living in and restoring a Pennsylvania farmhouse, Christie shows us that we are all gardeners. No matter our vocation, we spend much of our lives tending, keeping, and caring. In each act of creation, we reflect the image of God. In each moment of making beauty, we realize that beauty is a mystery to receive.
