We’re excited to run this giveaway of FIVE copies of this superb new book by Tara Beth Leach:
Radiant Church: Restoring the Credibility of Our Witness
Tara Beth Leach
Paperback: IVP Books, 2021
Something is not right. The witness of the church in North America is eroding. Many Christians are alarmed by the decline in church attendance and seek a culprit. Too often, we point the finger away from the church, make culture the enemy, and build walls between us and others. But our antagonism and enemy-making are toxins that further eat away at our witness. Is there a better way? Tara Beth Leach could easily be one of those millennials giving up on the church. Instead, she is a pastor who loves the church and is paradoxically hopeful for its future. In an era where the church has lost much of its credibility, Leach casts a radiant vision for Christians to rediscover a robust, attractive witness. We need to name the toxic soil we’ve grown in, repent for past wrongs, and lean into a better way to become the church that Jesus proclaimed we would be. Leach casts down idolatrous false images of God to recover a winsome picture of a kingdom of abundance and goodness. We can be sustained by practices that will tune our hearts to God’s and form us into the radiant communities God intends for us and those around us.

Thank you for doing this giveaway! I read the free first chapter the other night, and I couldn’t put it down. 🤩 So challenging and insightful!! The only reason I haven’t already purchased is I need to finish Reading While Black by Dr. Esau McCaulley first. Another great work from IV Press. 😉
And I receive the newsletters. Thanks for all you do!
