Prayer: The Cry for the Kingdom

Stanley Grenz

*** $3.99 ***

[ BUY NOW ]

Bringing our needs and desires to God has always stood at the heart of Christian prayer. But why is petitioning God so important? In Prayer: The Cry for the Kingdom noted theologian Stanley Grenz points to petitionary prayer as a crucial way for us to be involved with God’s work in history. At the center of such prayer, Grenz argues, is the cry to God that his kingdom might come into the world. / Grenz explores key questions that many Christians ask: What does it mean to pray “according to God’s will”? Should we persist in petitioning God for our needs? Does prayer really influence God? In the process of addressing these questions, Grenz offers practical guidance on praying effectively and challenges the contemporary church to recapture what it means to be a church that prays.  Prayer: The Cry for the Kingdom will help readers from every Christian tradition to foster a richer personal and communal life of prayer.

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

Miroslav Volf /
Ryan McAnnally-Linz

*** $2.49 ***

[ BUY NOW ]

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.

Journey Toward Justice: Personal Encounters in the Global South

Nicholas Wolterstorff

*** $2.99 ***

[ BUY NOW ]

Drawing on his experiences in South Africa, the Middle East, and Honduras, leading philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff’s explains how his views on justice have changed through the years.

In Journey Toward Justice: Personal Encounters in the Global South Wolterstorff offers readers an autobiographical tour through which he distills the essence of his thoughts on this timely topic through the lenses of his experiences in the global south. After describing how he came to think about justice as he does and reviewing the theory of justice he developed in earlier writings, Wolterstorff shows how deeply embedded justice is in Christian Scripture. He reflects on the difficult struggle to right injustice and examines the necessity of just punishment. Finally, he explores the relationship between justice and beauty and between justice and hope.

Christianity’s demographics, vitality, and influence have tipped markedly toward the global South and East-regioms both increasingly concerned with justice. Addressing this seismic shift, one of today’s leading Christian scholars reflects on what he has learned about justice through his encounters with world Christianity.

Near Christianity: How Journeys Along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved My Faith in God

Anthony Le Donne

*** $2.99 ***

[ BUY NOW ]

Embrace a deeper and more complex faith in Christ in Dr. Anthony Le Donne’s Near Christianity: How Journeys Along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved My Faith in God! This unique book is an exploration of Christianity alongside Jewish guides who are well-studied in and sympathetic to Christianity, but who remain “near Christianity.”

Reflecting upon his own journeys within biblical studies and contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue, Le Donne illustrates not only the value nut also the necessity of continued Jewish friendship for the Christian life. With the help of Jewish friends and mentors, he presents a deeper and more complex Christian faith, offering readers a better vision of the beauty and genius of Christianity, but also an honest look at its warts and failings. Near Christianity weaves Le Donne’s own story and personal conversations with Jewish friends to model how his fellow Christians can avoid blurring the differences between Christianity and Judaism on the one hand and exaggerating them on the other.
