Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the U.S. (Paperback/eBook)
Lenny Duncan is an unlikely pastor. Formerly incarcerated, he is now a black preacher in the whitest denomination in the United States: the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Shifting demographics and shrinking congregations make the headlines, but Duncan connects the church's lack of diversity to its lack of vitality. Part manifesto, part confession, and all love letter, Dear Church offers a bold new vision for the future of the church.
This volume includes some of the most essential writings of the theologian Gerhard Forde and trace the contours of Forde's theological argument. Organized around "Law and Gospel," the selections incude historical background on that doctrinal locus and express Forde's own views of the law and the gospel, including death and resurrection, the bondage of the will, good works, preaching, and the sacraments. The volume also includes a definitive introduction to Forde's life and work.
Becoming Like Creoles: Living and Leading at the Intersections of Injustice, Culture, and Religion (Paperback/eBook)
Creolization offers a way of envisioning a future through interplay between cultural diversity, injustice and oppression, and intersectionality. People of faith must embrace such practices to be relevant and effective for ministry in the 21st century. Becoming Like Creoles prepares followers of Jesus to live in a world where injustice is real and cultural diversity is increasing. This book will equip readers to embrace a Creole process, becoming culturally competent and social justice focused.
Self-help books emerge from one of two flawed views of the self--that people are fundamentally bad or fundamentally good--and these mutually exclusive ditches are destructive. Dan Kent presents a third view. He shows how the humility Jesus revealed offers the most accurate, freeing view of the self. Whereas the ditches both lead to powerlessness and passivity, humility as Jesus teaches it is empowering, fosters proactivity, and serves as a scaffold for true confidence.
Offering Bible Readings and prayers for each day, this devotional is perfect for individuals, congregations, households, or small groups.
Pastor Jason Micheli had performed dozens of weddings when he was diagnosed with incurable cancer. Suddenly, his own marriage came into sharp relief.

A beloved story of Jesus welcoming you to his special meal of Holy Communion. This book is designed for children, parents, and teachers.
We have forgotten that we belong to each other, becoming disconnected as fear, hatred, and division have infected our lives together.
In Love Big, leadership coach Rozella Haydée White introduces readers to the power of revolutionary relationships, which lead us to love big--to love despite hardships and fear; to love in the face of despair; to love ourselves and others deeply and passionately; to love in ways that change us all.
Science is not a threat to the faith of Christian youth. In fact, Sara Sybesma Tolsma, an award-winning scientist, and Jason Lief, a leading practical theologian, argue that youth ministry needs science to help young people explore their relationship to God and engage their world faithfully. Pastors, faith leaders, and youth workers must not only engage science but embrace its lessons for the life and practice of Christian faith today.
