The Word's Out: Principles and strategies for effective evangelism today
At a time of declining church attendance, this book challenges us to understand that evangelism is more important than ever. The problem is that churches and their leaders often struggle with the idea and concepts around evangelism, unsure of what might be theologically or culturally appropriate ways to communicate the message. This book aims to supply principles and strategies for evangelism that are theologically rooted, practical and relevant to the 21st century. It shows how Jesus and the early church did evangelism and what we can learn from them for our situations. There is lots of practical help from two experienced practitioners to develop an evangelistic strategy for your church. It will also encourage leaders at every level of the church to be leaders and enablers in evangelism. The approach is theologically rigorous and powerfully practical, with the focus on redefining a genuine biblical evangelism. It will help you put foundations in place for developing a sustainable strategy in your church so that you can connect not just with those on the fringes but with those who are way outside.

Let the Children Come: Reimagining Childhood from a Christian Perspective
Explore what faithful parenting might look like todayIn Let the Children Come, Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore explores the question, What does faithful parenting look like today? As she addresses this query, she updates outmoded and distorted assumptions about and conceptions of children in popular US culture. She also shows important insights and contributions religious traditions and communities, Christianity in particular, make as we examine how to regard and treat children well.Miller-McLemore draws on historical and contemporary understandings of Christianity, psychology, and feminism to push back against negative trends, such as the narcissistic use of children for adult benefit, the market use of children to sell products, and the failure to give children meaningful roles in the domestic work of the family and the life of wider society.Miller-McLemore views children as full participants in families and religious communities and as human beings deserving of greater respect and understanding than people typically grant them. In particular, the book rethinks five ways adults have viewed (and misperceived) children--as victims, sinful, gifts, work (the labor of love), and agents.Reimagining children, she proposes, will lead to a renewed conception of the care of children as a religious practice.

Living in the Gaze of God: Supervision and Ministerial Flourishing
Living in the Gaze of God offers an accessible exploration of the theme of ministerial accountability through the lens of one reflective tool - that of formal supervision of ministerial practice. Bold and far-reaching, the book addresses the key presenting issues around a need for a change of culture in the church as regards accountability for ministerial practice. It outlines a theological and practical model of 1-to-1 supervision, arguing that such an approach enables the development of greater attentiveness to God, the self and others and thus enhances accountability. Laying aside the need to offer a 'how-to' approach, Helen Cameron instead brings us a rigorous and dynamic consideration of the interface between supervision, accountability and ministerial practice, and offers a theological underpinning for the issues.

Elders Rising: The Promise and Peril of Aging
Riding the age wave with graceIn this inspiring book, Roland D. Martinson draws on the folk wisdom and experience of over fifty persons between the ages of sixty-two and ninety-seven. He puts this wisdom in conversation with scriptural and theological understandings of elders in the last third of life and sets forth perspectives on aging for individuals, groups, civic organizations, and congregations to utilize in developing a vital, resilient, and productive quality of life for elders. The book explores some current age-wave numbers and explores elderhood in relation to Scripture, theology, and the wisdom of pioneers and pathfinders. Practical direction is given for conversation and action based on exploring elder identity, presence, partnerships, passions, purpose, powers, and promise.Martinson lays out a process for helping communities, including faith communities, become vital aging centers where elders are called to look honestly and hopefully at life's third chapter and to make it a time of discovery, adventure, and capacity. The volume will help congregations better serve the needs of elders and integrate elder wisdom and capacity in their mission and ministry.

Receiving the Day: Christian Practices for Opening the Gift of Time
Embrace time as a gift--not an obstacleReceiving the Day invites us to open the gift of time, to dwell in the freedom to rest and worship that God intends for us and for all creatures. In this book, Dorothy C. Bass shows how Christian practices for rest and worship continually welcome us into a way of life attuned to the love of God, neighbor, earth, and self.Bass does not aim to provide clear instructions for creating a schedule that solves all our puzzles about how to live in time. Rather, convinced that Christian faith bears great wisdom about time, Bass offers an account of the weekly practice of keeping sabbath, along with other practices by which Christians have sought to live faithfully in time.These practices have been lived by diverse communities of faith across centuries and cultures. Through them, we can learn to dwell more graciously, attentively, and faithfully within the hours and days we have. We can also learn to share the gift of time gladly and gratefully with others, in and for this world God loves.

Despite being part of one of the most mobile societies in history, it's easy for us to feel stuck where we are. Whether because of a recent move or because we're still in the exact same place we've been for years, many of us just aren't where we thought we'd be or doing what we thought we'd be doing. Sometimes we may wonder if God knows what he's doing. How can this be part of his plan? With enthusiasm and contagious joy, Shauna Pilgreen assures readers that, yes, God does have a plan and a purpose for them--right where they are. In fact, he sent them there. She invites readers to live sent, showing them how to see their surroundings with fresh eyes and renewed energy. Weaving her own remarkable story with biblical habits readers can incorporate into their daily routines, Pilgreen equips us to reach out into our communities with God's love, knowing that our efforts are never in vain.

Catholic Missionaries and Their Work with the Poor: Mitigating Market-Government Failure in Emerging Nations
This book explores the vital role of faith-based organizations (FBOs) in compensating for the market's and government's inability to provide vital services. Its key theoretical contribution is the notion that poverty is the result of a triadic failure-when markets, government, and civil society become dysfunctional at the same time. Using data on Catholic missionaries' development work, this study presents the various ways by which FBOs mitigate market and government failures in healthcare, education, and social services, and in the process build and strengthen civil society. This study has two main objectives. First, it aims to present an overview of missionaries' development work, evaluating the socioeconomic significance of their faith-based development work. In addition, various comparative advantages and disadvantages have been imputed to FBOs in the religion-development literature, and we assess to what extent missionaries actually exhibit these posited qualities in practice. Second, the groundwork is laid for future religion-development scholars by presenting a theoretical framework and a method for evaluating the role and contributions of FBOs in the larger community. This is an important investigation of contemporary worldwide Christianity and its relationship with development. As such, it will interest scholars of religious studies and missiology, as well as development economics, public service and the political economy.

Coming Out Gold: A Quest for Sexual Purity
A book written to help predominantly men who are believers but who struggle with sexual impurity. However Coming Out Gold is primarily about us, realizing the eternal and significant value we have in God. It is also a message to churches and leaders across the world to better equip themselves with mercy, grace encouragement and restoration for the endless stream of emotionally hurting people that have become bound by this epidemic. It has been written to help people to see that God does not condemn, that we are under grace, that we don't have to work to be free of sin, but that our identity is in God even though we sin and fall on our journey. Sanctification is a process and we must be careful to keep our eyes on Jesus, not to condemn ourselves when we fall - or others. Coming Out Gold uses the analogy of the refining fire removing the impurities of gold. God is trying to get us to see our value in Him. We are pure gold to God because His blood removed all of the impurities in our lives and made us a brand-new creation in Christ Jesus. The more we believe we are impurity-free then the temptation to return to the things that make us impure becomes less and less.

The Missionary and the Maharajas: Cecil Tyndale-Biscoe and the Making of Modern Kashmir
Cecil Tyndale-Biscoe polarised opinion in early 20th India by his unconventional methods of educating Kashmiris and, through them, changing the social order of a society steeped in old superstitions. He was a man of contradictions: a Christian and a boxer, a missionary who made very few converts, a staunch supporter of British imperialism and a friend of Kashmir's political reformers. He made enemies of the Hindu Establishment, who described him as `exceedingly a bad man and one too much fond of cricket,' but earned the respect of two successive Hindu Maharajas, as well as the Muslim leader, who succeeded them. He was 27 when he became the Principal of the Church Missionary Society's school in Kashmir in 1890 and he left as India gained independence in 1947. His vision was of a school in action, vigorously involved in the affairs and problems of the city of Srinagar, to support the weak and to fight corruption wherever it occurred. Under his leadership the masters and boys were engaged in fighting fires in the city, saving people from drowning, taking hospital patients for outings on the lakes, helping women and removing the ban on the remarriage of young widows. His avowed purpose was to make his students into honest, fearless leaders, who would serve their beloved country of Kashmir. The book begins with the medieval condition of Kashmir in the nineteenth century; describes the development of his unusual approach to education; explores the many challenges he had to overcome, including his chronic bad health, his difficulties with the CMS and the opposition of the Hindu establishment and State Government; and contrasts this with the speedy and enthusiastic acceptance by his young Kashmiri teachers and students of what he was offering and how together they transformed their society and prepared Kashmir for independence.

In the Midst of Chaos: Caring for Children as Spiritual Practice
How the daily practices of life with children can shape our faithIn the Midst of Chaos explores parenting as spiritual practice, building on Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore's fresh conceptions of children from her book Let the Children Come.She questions conventional perceptions that spiritual practices require silence, solitude, and uninterrupted prayer and that assume a life unburdened by care of others. She is both honest about the difficulties and attentive to the blessings present in everyday life and demonstrates that the life of faith encompasses children and the adults who care for them.Miller-McLemore explores how parents might use seven daily practices, such as play, reading, chores, and saying goodbye or goodnight as rich opportunities to shape both parent and child morally and spiritually.Through these experiences, she shows how the very care of children forms and reforms the faith of adults themselves, contrary to the belief that adults must form children. In the Midst of Chaos also goes beyond the typical focus on individual self-fulfillment by tackling difficult questions of social justice and mutuality in the ways families live together.Readers will find in this book an invitation to love those around them in the midst of life's craziness and to live more deeply in grace.

The Message of Discipleship: Authentic Followers Of Jesus In Today's World
Soon after Jesus began his public ministry, he called his first `disciples'. He would teach and train them and then, after his death and resurrection, commission and empower them to go to the `nations' to make more `followers' of himself. The risen Jesus is still calling and sending disciples today. If we heed his call the result can be just as transformative and as exciting as it was for the first disciples. While there are no explicit occurrences of the term `disciple' outside the Gospels and Acts, with only two further biblical references to `followers' of Jesus, it is Peter Morden's conviction that we need the whole Bible if we are going to be whole-life disciples. He reflects on Scripture and asks the primary question, `How do we live as committed disciples of Jesus today?' He explores the foundations, the resources and the practice of discipleship, from a range of Old and New Testament texts. The result is a well-rounded and satisfying picture of Christian discipleship, one that is wonderfully attractive as well as deeply challenging.

Well: Healing Our Beautiful, Broken World from a Hospital in West Africa
Sarah Thebarge, a Yale-trained physician assistant, nearly died of breast cancer at age twenty-seven, but that did not end her deeply felt spiritual calling to medical missions in Africa. Risking her own health, she moved to Togo, West Africa-ranked by the United Nations as the least happy country in the world-to care for sick and suffering patients. Serving without pay in a mission hospital, she pondered the intersection of faith and medicine in her quest to help make the world well. In the hospital wards, she witnessed death over and over again. In the outpatient clinic, she daily diagnosed patients with deadly diseases, many of which had simple but unavailable cures. She lived in austere conditions and nearly succumbed herself in a harrowing bout with malaria. She describes her experiences in gripping detail and reflects courageously about difficult and deep human connections-across race, culture, material circumstances, and medical access. Her experience exemplifies the triumph of surviving in order to share the stories that often go untold. In the end, WELL is an invitation to ask what happens when, instead of asking why God allows suffering to happen in the world, we ask, Why do we?

Jesus said it plainly: Go and make disciples of all nations. How do we live this out in our ordinary lives? The world is changing. More than ever, God is bringing people from other countries and cultures into our neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools. But we often don't know how to start building meaningful relationships with them. In Across the Street and Around the World, Jeannie Marie shows us that following Jesus' final instructions doesn't have to be as daunting or as impossible as we might imagine. Step-by-step, Marie walks us through the shifts in perspective necessary to align our hearts, minds, and everyday lives with God's heart for the nations. Using personal stories and plenty of inspiration, she gently guides us away from common missteps, while offering practical tips and spiritual lessons for engaging in cross-cultural relationships with love and purpose. At the end of the day, connecting with people from different backgrounds simply starts with walking across the street as we join in God's plans for our neighborhoods, our cities, and the world.

Making a Scene in the Pulpit: Vivid Preaching for Visual Listeners
How can preachers ensure that their sermons continue to engage listeners in a world defined by visual media and the short, segmented delivery of information? Alyce McKenzie harnesses the element of drama and the human fascination with scenes to offer ministers a modern means of sermon development and delivery. McKenzie's core strategy is to invite listeners into scenes—whether from Scripture or contemporary life—and, once they are there, to point them toward the larger story of God's relationship with humankind. Creating such scenes unifies the whole process of preaching, she says, from the preacher's daily life observations to interpretation of scenes from Scripture, to sermon shaping, sequencing, and delivery. The process culminates in a specific understanding of the purpose of the sermon: to send listeners out into the scenes they'll play in their lives for the next week, equipped to act out their parts in ways that are kinder, more just, and more courageous than last week.

The Significance of Singleness: A Theological Vision for the Future of the Church
The church needs to do a better job of speaking theologically to single Christians. Challenging prevailing evangelical assumptions about the problem of singleness, this book explains why the church needs single people and offers a contemporary theology of singleness relevant to all members of the church. Drawing on the examples of three important figures from the history of Christianity, the book helps today's church form a vision of life in the kingdom of God that is as theologically significant for single people as it is for those who are married.

Yaks and cataracts: Medical mission at the top of the world
In 1913 Ada Moore rode her pony along the ancient trade route from Srinagar to Leh, in Ladakh, to join the Moravian Mission there. This was the end of a journey which began in a laundry in Scarborough ten years before and the beginning of an extraordinary thirteen years living and working amongst the Tibetan people of this remote part of India. Ada's daughter, Monica, was born near the Tibetan border. Her book describes living high in the Himalayas in the first half of the 20th century. It gives a rare insight into the domestic and professional life of the missionaries who, from running a school to giving medical help in the most primitive conditions, were involved with the lives of the local people, and who worked to build a connection between different cultures. It tells what they learnt of local customs and beliefs and recounts their hair-raising adventures while travelling by yak and pony amongst some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery in the world.

Jean Vanier is a living saint. -James Martin, SJ In April 2008, Jean Vanier led a simple retreat in Nyahururu, Kenya, a place recently shattered by violence between people, and bloodshed. People there were shaken. With frequent reference to the Gospel of John, this book comprises the talks that Vanier gave: What Are You Looking For? The Cry of the Poor The Feast Is Ready To Live in Unity Be Open Encountering the Other The Washing of the Feet I am a broken man like all human beings, but I also know that Jesus loves me and that he is calling me to grow. This is the experience of being loved in my brokenness and therein lies the incredible gentleness of our God. We all have to discover the point of our brokenness because that is precisely the place where we are the beloved. Sometimes we hide behind the idea that we are better than others. We have to discover that none of us is better, that we are all children of God... God has a desire to bring people together in love. There are two fundamental things that Jesus came to reveal to us. First, God is a lover. God loves. Second, this incredible, gentle, and tender God is in love with each one of us. Each person is precious to God and together we are to build a community where we love each other. -from the book

This Precarious Moment: Six Urgent Steps that Will Save You, Your Family, and Our Country
America is at a crisis point. We have a limited amount of time to get it right. The nation must get back on track or be forever derailed. That is not melodrama. That is fact. Only Biblical truth can save our country. Some don't seem to care that it is saved. But many of us do care. For our children, grandchildren, and future generations. There are six serious problems - racial strife, a massive immigration disaster, failure to understand Israel's role in the world, millennial thinking, misunderstanding of the nature of government, and a church that has capitulated to culture - that are screaming for solutions. And the good news is: there are steps we can take. In this book, Pastor James Garlow and evangelical political activist David Barton present fellow Christians with six steps America needs to take to prevent chaos at this precarious moment in history.

Non-Religious Pastoral Care: A Practical Guide
This ground-breaking book is a guide to non-religious pastoral care practice in healthcare, prisons, education, and the armed forces in the UK. It brings a new perspective to our understanding of care services traditionally offered by chaplaincy departments. The book charts the progress from a Christian to a multi-faith and on to a fully inclusive care service. Compelling evidence is presented showing strong and broad support for non-religious pastoral care provision. A practical guide, it outlines the beliefs and values on which this care is founded and its person-centred approach. The role, skills, competencies, and training requirements for non-religious pastoral carers are described. Institutions need to consider their policy responses to the rapid development of non-religious pastoral care provision. A number of policy aspects are explored, including understanding service users' needs, recruitment, and communications. This book is essential reading for non-religious pastoral carers and those thinking of entering this field. Chaplains and institutional managers responsible for chaplaincy or spiritual care departments will find this book gives them valuable insights into the positive contribution non-religious pastoral carers can make in building stronger, more inclusive pastoral, spiritual, and religious care services.
