The Gospel of Rutba: War, Peace, and the Good Samaritan Story in Iraq
In 2003, three U.S. Christian peacemakers weathered the first horrifying days of Shock and Awe in Baghdad only to be nearly killed in a car accident as they were leaving the country. They were rescued by Iraqi Muslims who took them to a clinic in the already bombed-out town of Rutba, where they received protection and care. In sending the Americans on their way, their hosts had only one request: Go and tell the world of Rutba. In fulfillment ...

Oriented to Faith: Transforming the Conflict over Gay Relationships
, Shane Claiborne (Foreword)
Rather than embracing the conflict around gay relationships as an opportunity for the church to talk honestly about human sexuality, Christians continue to hurt one another with the same tired arguments that divide us along predictable political battle lines. If the world is to ''know that we are Christians by our love,'' the church needs to discover better ways to live out the deep unity we share in Christ as we engage with politics and our ...
Green Revolution: Coming Together to Care for Creation
We are facing planet-sized challenges. Climate change and environmental crises can be pretty immobilizing, and we can fall into the temptation of thinking that we can't make a difference.

Activist Ben Lowe calls the present generation to come together and care for the earth in ...

Logan Mehl-Laituri grew up in a community that celebrated military service. His faith reinforced his ...

The New Conspirators: Creating the Future One Mustard Seed at a Time
"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed," Jesus says in the Gospel of Matthew, "nothing will be impossible for you." That sounds good, but does it work in a world where seeds are genetically altered by an impatient few and hard to come by for countless others? In a world where the gulf between the very rich and the profoundly poor is constantly growing, can a mustard-seed faith make any difference? And can such a little bit of faith be ...

In this urgent, provocative book, Ash Barker offers both challenge and hope. Pulling out and reflecting on ...
