433764: Return to Justice: Six Movements That Reignited Our Contemporary Evangelical ConscienceReturn to Justice: Six Movements That Reignited Our Contemporary Evangelical Conscience

By Soong-Chan Rah and Gary VanderPol

*** $2.49 ***

In recent years, there has been renewed interest by evangelicals in the topic of biblical social justice. Younger evangelicals and millennials, in particular, have shown increased concern for social issues. But this is not a recent development. Following World War II, a new movement of American evangelicals emerged who gradually increased their efforts on behalf of justice. This work explains the important historical context for evangelical reengagement with social justice issues. The authors provide an overview of post-World War II evangelical social justice and compassion ministries, introducing key figures and seminal organizations that propelled the rediscovery of biblical justice. They explore historical and theological lessons learned and offer a way forward for contemporary Christians.
 
 

353437: The Case for Civility: And Why America"s Future Depends on ItThe Case for Civility: And Why America’s Future Depends on It

By Os Guinness

*** $2.49 ***

Have America’s founding principles become culture war casualties? While the world watches, we’re failing to live up to our own ideals. Calling both left and right to renounce ugly political polarization, Guinness makes an impassioned plea for a civil public square—one that neither privileges a particular faith nor excludes religion in the name of “tolerance.” 
 
 

226159: From Preachers to Suffragists: Woman"s Rights and Religious ConvictionFrom Preachers to Suffragists: Woman’s Rights and Religious Conviction

By Beverly Zink-Sawyer

*** $2.49 ***

The women’s rights movement in nineteenth-century America has primarily been interpreted as a secular movement. However, in From Preachers to Suffragists, Beverly Zink-Sawyer examines the lives of three nineteenth-century clergywomen–Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Olympia Brown, and Anna Howard Shaw–who, seeing their calling to the suffrage movement as an extension of their call to ministry, left the parish to join and become leaders in the movement. Zink-Sawyer tells the stories of their courageous lives, quoting their sermons and writings and tracing their struggles before and after ordination. In doing so, she persuasively demonstrates the vital importance of these leaders–of their religious rhetoric and their theological leadership–in shaping the movement as a whole, reclaiming its religious roots and making a major, even corrective, contribution to American history.

Edited By: Karen E. Eifler, Thomas M. Landy
*** $2.99 ***

Catholic colleges and universities have long engaged in conversation about how to fulfill their mission in creative ways across the curriculum. The “sacramental vision” of Catholic higher education posits that God is made manifest in the study of all disciplines. Becoming Beholders is the first book to share pedagogical strategies about how to do that. Twenty faculty – from many religious backgrounds, and in fields such as chemistry, economics, English, history, mathematics, sociology and theology – discuss ways that their teaching nourishes students’ ability to find the transcendent in their studies.

Grenz boldly asserts that petitionary prayer is the central way in which we engage in God’s work in history. He develops his ideas around age-old questions: What does it mean to pray “according to God’s will”? How can I become a person of prayer? Should we persist in unanswered requests?
