An extensive retelling of the Bible, focusing on God's grace and never-ending love for humanity in the classic Erlander style.
The Old Testament bears witness to an in-your-face, holy God--a God who gets down and dirty with creation and history; a God who gets in people's face with love and law, with power and purpose. Yet Israel's in-your-face God is also "holy"--too other, too raw, too intense to be handled without oven mitts. Rolf Jacobson wrestles with this in-your-face God--the God who smiles on Abraham and Sarah, hides his face from Moses, and uses prophets to shout in Israel's face.
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.

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.
How can we overthrow hate and heal hurt in today's divided world? According to Jacqueline A. Bussie, by learning to love as God does--without limits or exceptions.
In Love Without Limits, Bussie imparts practical solutions for people who yearn to love across difference. Through poignant memoir, engaging theological reflection, inspiring stories of friendship, creative readings of scripture, and shout-outs to some of love's unsung heroes, Bussie challenges readers to answer God's call to practice a love so vast that it excludes no one.
