I Bring the Voices of My People: A Womanist Vision for Racial Reconciliation

Chanequa Walker-Barnes

*** $3.99 ***

“Chanequa Walker-Barnes gives us new medicine, already tested through trials, and ready to address the sick ways Christians, especially evangelical Christians, think and talk about racial reconciliation. This beautifully written, sensitively personal, and analytically precise text may be the best book we have on racial reconciliation. Walker-Barnes, a womanist thinker of the highest order, has written herself into the required reading for every class that aims to consider race and reconciliation.” -Willie Jennings


Advent: The Once and Future Coming of Jesus Christ

Felming Rutledge

*** $3.99 ***

“My not-so-secret hope is that Fleming Rutledge’s Advent would become required reading in our seminaries and the focus of vestry book clubs, elder retreats, and worship leader workshops. Because that would give me hope for an apocalyptic renewal in the church—that we would learn again how to live as an Advent people, hoping in a God who acts and is making all things new. Taking this book to heart would teach us how to live wisely, faithfully, and prophetically in the Time Between.”- James K.A. Smith


The Epistle to the Galatians (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)

Ronald Y.K. Fung

*** $3.99 ***

“This book is joyous. It is neither anti-medicine nor anti-prevention; it is pro-balance, pro-scepticism and pro-perspective. Paradoxically, Natural Causes is about hope. If you are struggling with choices that weigh hope in potential medical advances that damage quality of life against non-treatment and the acceptance of a terminal diagnosis, this may not offer much comfort, but…as with so many of Ehrenreich’s books, NATURAL CAUSES is a much-needed tonic.” ―The Guardian
