    Richard Bauckham — Jesus and the Eyewitnesses

    Richard Bauckham — Jesus and the Eyewitnesses

    Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, when it was first published a decade ago, shook up the field of gospel studies. In a way, that's what Richard Bauckham intended. The book was meant to provoke a paradigm shift — a shift away from form criticism, which sees the gospels as strands of oral tradition, woven together and adapted by various communities, and toward an understanding of the gospels as eyewitness testimony, compiled and organized by particular authors with access to living memory of the events.

    Mark Amstutz — Just Immigration

    Mark Amstutz — Just Immigration

    The system is broken. That seems to be the only thing people can agree on when it comes to immigration. Some parties in the debate emphasize security and the rule of law; others call for welcome and compassion. Where should Christians stand?

    In Just Immigration, Mark Amstutz explores the complex landscape of legal and illegal immigration in the US and argues for a more credible engagement from Christians in the current moral and political debate.

    Jeremy Sabella — An American Conscience

    Jeremy Sabella — An American Conscience

    Reinhold Niebuhr is widely recognized as one of the most influential theologians of the 20th Century. He spoke to broad audiences—about sin and grace, peace and war, good and evil in our enemies and ourselves—as the kind of public intellectual that seems to be missing today. In An American Conscience, Jeremy Sabella draws from an unprecedented set of interviews to explore and illuminate Niebuhr's legacy.

    Abigail Carroll — A Gathering of Larks

    Abigail Carroll — A Gathering of Larks

    A Gathering of Larks is a witty and searching collection of lyrical letters to Francis of Assisi. These forty poetic epistles seek the Francis behind and before the ceramic garden statues and the romanticized saint. They explore and celebrate and question his radical life of faith, and they chart a pilgrimage in the author's own faith as well.
