  • Waging Peace: One Soldier's Story of Putting Love First

    Waging Peace: One Soldier's Story of Putting Love First

    Diana Oestreich served 407 days as a combat medic in Iraq. But when she was commanded to run over an Iraqi child to keep her battle buddies safe, she became a peacemaker instead. This beautiful and gut-wrenching memoir exposes the false divide between loving our country and living out our faith's call to love our enemies. By showing that us-versus-them is a false choice, this book will inspire us all to choose love over fear.

  • Stranger God: Meeting Jesus in Disguise

    Stranger God: Meeting Jesus in Disguise

    When Richard Beck first led a Bible study at a maximum security prison, he went to meet God. His own faith was flagging, but Beck still believed the promise of Matthew 25, that when we visit the prisoner, we visit Jesus. With his signature combination of biblical reflection, theological reasoning, and psychological insight, Beck shows how God always meets us in the marginalized and the refugee. God comes to us in the poor, the crippled, the smelly.

  • The Death of Race: Building a New Christianity in a Racial World

    The Death of Race: Building a New Christianity in a Racial World

    Brian Bantum says that race is not merely an intellectual category or a biological fact. It is a deeply theological problem, one that is central to the Christian story and that plays out daily in the United States and throughout the world. Our attempts to heal racism will not succeed unless we address a fallen understanding of our bodies. He examines the question of race, but through the lens of our bodies and what our bodies mean in the midst of a racialized world that perpetually dehumanizes dark bodies.
