By John B. Hayes
*** 49c ***
It’s time to change the face of poverty, to live our faith authentically, and to get involved with the people who need help.

Follow author John Hayes as he lives out his faith on some of the toughest streets and poorest ghettos in the world. Learn what real compassion looks like in the trenches. Discover why people of faith cannot ignore the poor and how the St. Francis model of compassion can help alleviate suffering today. You’ll also be energized to action through an inside look at the workings of InnerCHANGE, a mission organization that seeks to work among the poor, rather than just offering aid and handouts. Readers will come away with practical ways they can work for justice and find significance in the process.

014800: The Age of the Spirit: How the Ghost of an Ancient Controversy Is Shaping the Church

f the Spirit: How the Ghost of an Ancient Controversy Is Shaping the Church
By Phyllis Tickle with Jon M. Sweeney
*** $4.99 ***

A thousand years ago, the church experienced a time of tremendous upheaval called the Great Schism. The one faith became two churches, East and West, and the course of world history was forever changed. And it all swirled around one Latin word in the Nicene Creed, filioque, that indicated the Holy Spirit proceeded both from God the Father “and from the Son.” From the time that phrase was officially instituted onward, the Holy Spirit’s place in the Trinity and role in the lives of believers would be fiercely debated, with ramifications being felt through the centuries to this very day.

In this fascinating book, readers will encounter not just the interesting historical realities that have shaped our faith today but also the present resurgence of interest in the Holy Spirit seen in many churches across the theological spectrum. Christianity is growing by leaps and bounds in places where it has never made deep inroads before. Pentecostalism, with its emphasis on the Spirit and spontaneity, is the predominant force. Tickle and Sweeney make accessible and relevant the forces behind the current upheaval in the church, taking readers by the hand and leading them confidently into the Age of the Spirit.

039737: Who"s Afraid of Relativism?: Community, Contingency, and CreaturehoodWho’s Afraid of Relativism?: Community, Contingency, and Creaturehood
By James K.A. Smith
*** $3.99 ***
 
 
 

Following his successful Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism? leading Christian philosopher James K. A. Smith introduces the philosophical sources behind postliberal theology. Offering a provocative analysis of relativism, Smith provides an introduction to the key voices of pragmatism: Ludwig Wittgenstein, Richard Rorty, and Robert Brandom.

Many Christians view relativism as the antithesis of absolute truth and take it to be the antithesis of the gospel. Smith argues that this reaction is a symptom of a deeper theological problem: an inability to honor the contingency and dependence of our creaturehood. Appreciating our created finitude as the condition under which we know (and were made to know) should compel us to appreciate the contingency of our knowledge without sliding into arbitrariness. Saying “It depends” is not the equivalent of saying “It’s not true” or “I don’t know.” It is simply to recognize the conditions of our knowledge as finite, created, social beings. Pragmatism, says Smith, helps us recover a fundamental Christian appreciation of the contingency of creaturehood.

This addition to an acclaimed series engages key thinkers in modern philosophy with a view to ministry and addresses the challenge of relativism in a creative, original way.

The Church and Postmodern Culture series features high-profile theorists in continental philosophy and contemporary theology writing for a broad, nonspecialist audience interested in the impact of postmodern theory on the faith and practice of the church.

031359: Liturgy As a Way of Life: Embodying the Arts in Christian Worship Liturgy As a Way of Life: Embodying the Arts in Christian Worship
By Bruce Ellis Benson
*** $3.99 ***

In this contribution to The Church and Postmodern Culture series edited by leading cultural thinker James K.A. Smith, philosopher Bruce Ellis Benson explores how the arts inform and cultivate service to God, helping the church to not only think differently about the arts but also act differently. He contends that we are all artists, that our very lives should be seen as art, and that we should live liturgically in service to God and neighbor.

Liturgy as a Way of Life: Embodying the Arts in Christian Worship works from the biblical structure of call and response; Benson rethinks what it means to be artistic and recovers the ancient Christian idea of presenting oneself to God as a work of art.

Rather than viewing art as practiced only by the few, Benson argues that we are all called by God to be artists. He re-envisions art as the very core of our being: we are God’s own art, and God calls us to improvise as living and growing works of art. Benson also examines the nature of liturgy and connects art and liturgy in a new way.

This book will appeal to philosophy, worship/liturgy, art, music, and theology students as well as those who are interested in engaging issues of worship and aesthetics in a postmodern context.

About the Series
The Church and Postmodern Culture series features high-profile theorists in continental philosophy and contemporary theology writing for a broad, non-specialist audience interested in the impact of postmodern theory on the faith and practice of the church.

829541: Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories and Prayers

Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories and Prayers
By Eugene H. Peterson

*** $3.99 ***


2009 Christianity Today Book Award of Merit in Spirituality

Just as God used words both to create the world and to give us commandments, we too use words for many different purposes. In fact, we use the same language to talk to each other and to talk to God. Can our everyday speech, then, be just as important as the words and prayers we hear from the pulpit? Eugene Peterson unequivocally says “Yes!”

Tell It Slant explores how Jesus used language—he was earthy, not abstract; metaphorical, not dogmatic. His was not a direct language of information or instruction but an indirect, oblique language requiring a participating imagination—“slant” language. In order to witness and teach accurately in Jesus’ name, then, it is important for us to use language the way he did.
