  • Today Everything Is Different: An Adventure in Prayer and Action

    Today Everything Is Different: An Adventure in Prayer and Action

    In Today Everything Is Different Dirk Lange does not fail to deliver the "unexpected" in helping readers gain both a greater understanding of Christian spirituality and a path to it. On this adventure, the reader will explore the foundational underpinnings of baptism, the impact of prayer in many forms--especially in community--and the insights of giants like Luther and Bonhoeffer. The great beauty of the book, however, is found in the incredibly moving stories Lange shares.

  • I Can Do No Other: The Church's New Here We Stand Moment

    I Can Do No Other: The Church's New Here We Stand Moment

    Author Anna M. Madsen's book is a fresh and challenging look at the legacy of Martin Luther and the new reformation that is calling people of faith to action today.
