The Epistle to the Ephesians

Karl Barth

*** $3.99 ***


As he was preparing the second edition of his groundbreaking commentary on Romans, Karl Barth lectured on the exposition of Ephesians at the University of Gottingen from 1921-1922. As was his custom, he referred to a detailed and carefully researched manuscript. The Epistle to the Ephesians features the resulting set of lectures—now available in English for the first time—that introduce theological and exegetical issues pertaining to a study of Ephesians. Introductory essays by Francis Watson and John Webster.


Public Faith in Action: How to Think Carefully, Engage Wisely, and Vote with Integrity

Miroslav Volf /
Ryan McAnnally-Linz

*** $2.49 ***


Christian citizens have a responsibility to make political and ethical judgments in light of their faith and to participate in the public lives of their communities—from their local neighborhoods to the national scene. But it can be difficult to discern who to vote for, which policies to support, and how to respond to the social and cultural trends of our time.

This nonpartisan handbook offers Christians practical guidance for thinking through complicated public issues and faithfully following Jesus as citizens of their countries. Public Faith in Action focuses on enduring Christian commitments that should guide readers in their judgments and encourages legitimate debate among Christians over how to live out core values. The book also includes lists of resources for further reflection in each chapter and “room for debate” questions to consider.


Emergence Christianity: What It Is, Where It Is Going, and Why It Matters

Phyllis Tickle

*** 99c ***


Whatever else one might say about Emergence Christianity, one must agree it is shifting and reconfiguring itself in such a prodigious way as to defy any final assessments or absolute pronouncements. Yet in Emergence Christianity, Phyllis Tickle gathers the tangled threads of history and weaves the story of this fascinating movement into a beautiful and understandable whole.

Through her careful study and culture-watching, Tickle invites you to join this investigation and conversation as an open-minded explorer. You will discover fascinating insights into the concerns, organizational patterns, theology, and most pressing questions facing the church today. And you’ll get a tantalizing glimpse of the future.


Watching TV Religiously: Television and Theology in Dialogue

Kutter Callaway

*** $2.49 ***


Kutter Callaway and Dean Batali’s Watching TV Religiously: Television and Theology in Dialogue, a volume from the Engaging Culture Series, demonstrates that television–as a technology, a narrative art form, a commodity, and a portal for our ritual lives–contronts viewers theologically. Whether its content is explicitly spiritual or not, TV routinely invites (and sometimes demands) theological reflection.

Watching TV Religiously articulates something of the presence and activity of God in the golden age of TV and forges an appropriate response to an ever-changing cultural form. Callaway and Batali construct a theology of television that allows for both celebration and critique, helping Christians more fully understand and appreciate the power and meaning of TV. A supplemental website provides additional resources, conversations, and close readings of TV programs.


Adventures in Evangelical Civility: A Lifelong Quest for Common Ground

Richard Mouw

*** $2.99 ***


From one of the most influential evangelical voices in America comes a reflection on almost fifty years of Christian public life and a lifelong “quest for commonness”—engaging with others in a positive manner and advocating for a “convicted civility” when conversing with those with whom we disagree. Drawing upon nearly half a century of scholarship, leadership, and ministry, as well as a vast array of non-Christian scholars and other faith traditions, Richard Mouw’s Adventures in Evangelical Civility seeks to cultivate a civility that is compatible with the author’s Calvinist convictions.

Providing a unique lens for understanding twentieth-century evangelicalism, Mouw explores themes such as common grace, the imago Dei, and interfaith dialogue, offering a critical assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of what he has accomplished as a spokesperson for evangelical and Reformed perspectives.
