A Faith Not Worth Fighting For: Addressing Commonly Asked Questions about Christian Nonviolence (Peaceable ...
In A Faith Not Worth Fighting For , editors Justin Bronson Barringer and Tripp York have assembled a number of essays by pastors, activists, and scholars, in order to address the common questions and objections leveled against the Christian practice of nonviolence.

Reborn on the Fourth of July: The Challenge of Faith, Patriotism & Conscience

For decades now, the United States has proudly claimed the mantle of "the world's only superpower" based on military might and the scope of military interventions throughout the world. As a result, whole generations are growing up with the understanding that war is the norm, that perpetual conflict is a way of life. But is it the way of Christ? Logan Mehl-Laituri grew up in a community that celebrated military service. His faith reinforced his ...

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 ...

Jesus for President
Jesus for President is a radical manifesto to awaken the Christian political imagination, reminding us that our ultimate hope lies not in partisan political options but in Jesus and the incarnation of the peculiar politic of the church as a people 'set apart' from this world. In what can be termed lyrical theology, Jesus for President poetically weaves together words and images to sing (rather than dictate) its message. It is a collaboration of ...

Living Mission: The Vision and Voices of New Friars

Presented here are five "signs of life," showcased by this network of movements best referred to as "new friars."

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 ...

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