Inhabiting the World: Identity, Politics, and Theology in Radical Baptist Perspective
By author: Ryan Andrew Newson

It is now widely acknowledged that the Western world has been transitioning into a "postmodern" context for some time. Many, if not most, of the commitments that gained ascendancy during the Enlightenment are rapidly changing--including but not limited to our cultural sensibilities, manufacturing practices, philosophical theories, and political forms. Given these shifts, the challenge for Christians of all stripes is to strive to faithfully engage this world without acquiescence or retreat. In INHABITING THE WORLD, Ryan Newson argues that resources contained in the "baptist vision" of Christian life are uniquely helpful in describing how Christians might transformatively and receptively inhabit the world as it now is. Newson unpacks the contours of a Christian identity centered around listening--to oneself, to others, and to the wild voice of God--and focuses his argument by engaging the work of theologian James Wm. McClendon, Jr.

Volume III brings together important texts of Walter Rauschenbusch, most significantly an unpublished book, "Christianity Revolutionary" first begun in 1891/92. This text was published under another title and with significant modifications. Here is the original, unaltered text for the first time. In addition, this volume contains Rauschenbusch's last major work, A THEOLOGY FOR THE SOCIAL GOSPEL (1917). This answered the call for a serious theological underpinning of the social gospel. The most extensive bibliography for Walter Rauschenbusch has been assembled in this volume. It includes a first-ever listing of archival resources from North American and European collections that will suggest and enable further investigation of Rauschenbusch.

A CHUCH FOR RACHEL is a collection of discourses written for, and among, those who mourn, grieve, struggle, and wonder. The "Rachel" in the title is the Rachel in the Bible, the Rachel who died birthing Benjamin in Genesis, and subsequently became a symbol for sadness in Matthew and Jeremiah: "Rachel, weeping for her children who are no more."
