  • Cross Vision: How the Crucifixion of Jesus Makes Sense of Old Testament Violence (Paperback)

    Cross Vision: How the Crucifixion of Jesus Makes Sense of Old Testament Violence (Paperback)

    Renowned pastor-theologian Gregory A. Boyd tackles the Bible's biggest dilemma.

    The Old Testament God of wrath and violence versus the New Testament God of love and peace-it's a difference that has troubled Christians since the first century. Now, with the sensitivity of a pastor and the intellect of a theologian, Gregory A. Boyd proposes the "cruciform hermeneutic," a way to read the Old Testament portraits of God through the lens of Jesus' crucifixion.

  • Is That Poop on My Arm?: Parenting While Christian

    Is That Poop on My Arm?: Parenting While Christian

    Parenting is messy business. Joyful, but messy. When faith is combined with parenting, we double down on the mess. Pastor and father of three Justin Lind-Ayres chronicles his adventures raising children and passing on his faith to them. But children are often our best teachers in faith, opening our eyes and our hearts to God's love for us.

    With stories full of humor, honesty, and, yes, even some poop, this book is a welcome encouragement for parents, grandparents, and anyone who cares deeply for the children in their life.

  • The Forgotten Books of the Bible: Recovering the Five Scrolls for Today

    The Forgotten Books of the Bible: Recovering the Five Scrolls for Today

    You're probably missing some of the most interesting books of the Bible.

    The five books known as "The Five Scrolls" perform a central liturgical function in Judaism. The Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentation, Ecclesiastes, and Esther, together with the five books of the Torah, orient Jewish life and provide the language of the faith.

    In the Christian tradition, by contrast, these books have largely been forgotten. But they deserve much more attention, since they address issues like sexuality, grief, existential despair, ethnic identity, and power. Williamson guides readers into these overlooked books of the Bible, showing their surprising relevance to contemporary life.
