Good News After Auschwitz? : Christian Faith in a Post-Holocaust World
By author: John K. Roth

ISBN: 9780865547018
Product Format: Hardback

Price: $39.95
What can a credibility-challenged Christianity contribute to a post-Holocaust world? Many argue that in a post-Holocaust world, Christians must address their own culpability in the destruction of Europe’s Jewry. If post-Holocaust Christians only lament Christianity’s sin, which has been catastrophically destructive in its anti-Jewish manifestations, the tradition will be ultimately left with little to say and no credibility. Post-Holocaust Christians must emphasize positive differences that Christianity can make, including • Repentant honesty about Christianity’s anti-Jewish history • New appreciation for the Jewish origins of Christianity, the Jewish identity of Jesus, and the continuing vitality of the Jewish people and their traditions • Welcome liberation from liturgies and biblical interpretations that promote harmful Christian exclusivism • Deepened understanding that the core of Christian practice is to love—inclusively and hospitably—one’s neighbors as oneself Informed by the best Holocaust scholarship and written in an accessible style, these essays show that God’s embodied presence in the world provides life and hope that even the Holocaust cannot destroy.

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

Price: $35.00
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.

Is God a Christian? Creating a Community of Conversation
By author: R. Kirby Godsey
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P532

Price: $20.00
In a world composed of almost seven billion people, about 2.2 billion of them claim to be Christian. And while Christianity is continuing to grow at a modest rate, other religions are growing at a faster pace. Some scholars predict that Islam will overtake Christianity as the world’s largest religion by the middle of the twenty-first century. Predictions aside, religions are competing for the world stage, and in the competition, Christians seem certain that God is on their side. Christians often think and behave as though God is a Christian. This book is written to ask if that assumption is true and to foster a more open conversation about other world religions. The world has grown too small and the stakes for mankind have grown too high for any of us to engage our faith as if our understanding of God represents the only way God’s presence may be known in the world.
