Winner of the 2012 Outreach Cross-Cultural Ministry Resource of the Year

Genocide. Terrorism. Hate crimes. In a world where racism is far from dead, is unity amidst diversities even remotely possible?

Sharing from his own experiences growing up in the segregated South, pastor John Piper thoughtfully exposes the unremitting problem of racism. Instead of turning finally to organizations, education, famous personalities, or government programs to address racial strife, Piper reveals the definitive source of hope--teaching how the good news about Jesus Christ actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God.

Learn to pursue ethnic harmony from a biblical perspective, and to relate to real people different from yourself, as you take part in the bloodline of Jesus that is comprised of "every tongue, tribe, and nation."

    Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger's election as Pope Benedict XVI brought a world-class biblical theologian to the papacy. There is an intensely biblical quality to his pastoral teaching and he has demonstrated a keen concern for the authentic interpretation of sacred Scripture.

    Here a foremost interpreter of Catholic thought and life offers a probing look at Benedict's biblical theology and provides a clear and concise introduction to his life and work. Bestselling author and theologian Scott Hahn argues that the heart of Benedict's theology is salvation history and the Bible and shows how Benedict accepts historical criticism but recognizes its limits. The author also explains how Benedict reads the overall narrative of Scripture and how he puts it to work in theology, liturgy, and Christian discipleship.

    DIVINE RELATIVITY A SOCIAL CONCEPTION O

    $21.00
    Charles Hartshorne has set himself the task of formulating the idea of deity "to preserve perhaps even increase, its religious value, while yet avoiding the contradictions which seem inseparable from the idea of customarily defined." This is a brilliant attempt to redefine problems that have long challenged the Western world in its search for understanding both God and man. "The compact, closely reasoned book employs a skill in logic reminiscent of scholasticism at its best to refute traditional notions, scholastic and otherwise, of divine absoluteness, and to expound a conception of God which is both free of contradiction and religiously adequate. The position taken is described by Professor Hartshorne as surrelativism, or panentheism, and these terms indicate the two major emphases of the volume....He who follows its precise logic with the alertness it demands will have a clarifying and enriching experience."--S. Paul Schiling, Journal of Bible and Religion
    "In what respects is God absolute and in what respects relative? Or is it meaningless to say that he is both? In a rigorously analytical study Professor Hartshorne explains why he thinks both statements are necessary....One comes from this book with new confidence in the ability of philosophy to attack religious problems and, through careful analysis, to reveal what as alone conceivable must be true."--J.S. Bixler, Review of Religion
    "Hartshorne's work is a major achievement in religious thought because it strives to clear away errors that have been insuperable obstacles to religious search."--Henry N. Wieman, The Philosophical Review
    "This book is not merely theoretical, as might be supposed; it has its practical application to the larger social issues of our time, including the problem of democracy."--Jay William Hudson, Christian Register

    Must you believe something to be saved? Does the kingdom of God include non-Christians? Is hell for real and forever?These are big questions. Hard questions. Questions that divide Christians along conservative and liberal lines.Conservatives love their beliefs and liberals believe in their love. Each pushes the other to opposite extremes. Fundamentalists imply that it doesn't matter how we live as long as we believe in Jesus, while some Emergent Christians respond that it doesn't matter what we believe as long as we live like him.Theologian Michael Wittmer calls both sides out of bounds and crafts a third way that retains the insights of each. He examines ten key questions that confront contemporary Christians and shows why both right belief and right practice are necessary for authentic Christianity.Here is an urgent reminder that best practices can only arise from true beliefs. Genuine Christians never stop serving because they never stop loving, and they never stop loving because they never stop believing.

    I know of no better current introduction to the study of theology than Dr. Hart's lucid, meaty and appetizing book. Stephen Sykes 'Faith Thinking' is a lively, provocative and most welcome book...contending for a dynamic way of doing theology that neither abandons thinking nor the life of the believing community. Richard Holloway Dr. Hart addresses fundamental questions about the nature of theology and theological method...and his style is clear and eminently readable. Anthony Thiselton There are few more important questions for theology today than that of its own character and status. In this important and wide-ranging book, Trevor Hart articulates and defends a robust thesis about its respectability, integrity and independence. Colin Gunton Trevor Hart is Professor of Divinity and Principal of St. Mary's College at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland.
