Fragile Connections: Memoirs of Mental Illness for Pastoral Care Professionals
Endorsements: "One of the greatest contributions of Capps's book is the way in which he weaves together a vast range of theories, interpretations, and explanations of psychopathology, without ever losing sight of the humanity of the person living with mental illness. Far too many books seek to find one, single explanation of the baffling and complex phenomenon of mental illness. Fragile Connections will expand our understanding and empower pastors and others concerned about mental illness with an eloquent exploration of one of the greatest mysteries of the human predicament." --Lewis Rambo, San Francisco Theological Union and Graduate Theological Union "Donald Capps skillfully guides his readers into the strange world of severe mental illness, a neighborhood disturbingly close to home. He first offers the lay of the land by scrutinizing particular psychiatric classifications. He then carefully treks through gripping narrative accounts of those battling schizophrenia, clinical depression, bipolar disorder, and Alzheimer's disease. Finally, with interpretive precision honed through a lifetime of attending to persons in pain, Capps risks his own stunning insights into the anguish and mystery of these lives. An exquisite and sobering journey." --Robert C. Dykstra, Princeton Theological Seminary "Fragile Connections is a most welcome resource for those of us involved in theological education. Capps's creative use of five memoirs allows persons who suffer from various mental illnesses and the family members who care for them to speak in their own voices about living with these afflictions." --Carol J. Cook, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary "Doing good with stealth as usual Donald Capps has designed this biblically, historically grounded book for seminary students and ministers, who will find no other like it. The book holds out the key to understanding the experiences of those who are mentally ill and those who love them. Capps argues that the study of individuals' personal memoirs--rather than medically modeled case studies--reveals the deep and profoundly personal nature of each person's unique experience of mental illness. What is more, written as it is in Capps's inimitable style, this book fills a void in seminary curricula as it addresses a problem in methodology." --Antoinette Goodwin, pastoral psychotherapist, Princeton, New Jersey

The Hardcore Truth: God's Judgment Made Simple
There are so many people walking around hurt with so many unresolved issues. Lacking the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding to get the victories needed when life problems presents itself. Yet, worse than being faced with a problem, is not knowing how to deal with the problem you're confronted with. And so for many of us the logical recourse is to turn to some medium to help relieve, escape, or medicate the problem at hand. With mediums such as alcohol, drugs, elicit sexual affairs, overeating, physical abuse etc. Unaware though, that the answer to all of life's problems is just book and a prayer away. The book I'm referring to is, "The Holy Bible." In it is the answer to every life problem imaginable. For you see after more than 25 years of study in this marvelous book, I have seen the excellent results from its application, coupled with, the miraculous works God has done. So let me tell you, God has laid out every possible answer imaginable in it! It is to this end that I write this book. To hopefully inspire you to gain some much needed insights into that Great God and Savior, who is a Wonderful Counselor.

Journey to the Edge of the Woods
The prophet Jeremiah, mourning his people in the city of Zion, spoke of the balm that could heal them. He foresaw the physician and he asked, "Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?" The message of Jesus has been in North America for centuries, yet past history with the first nations of the land has left many native people thinking they have to choose either to be an Indian or to believe in Jesus. Jeremiah said, "The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved." How, then, do we bring the balm of Gilead to the most oppressed group on the continent where women and children are suffering the highest rates of violence? When Jesus forgave a prostitute, when he offered living waters to the woman at the well who had six failed relationships, and when he healed a crippled woman, he showed us how he would build his church from the brokenhearted among all people. Journey to the Edge of the Woods visits women sharing concern over the degradation of our daughters, sisters, mothers, and friends in a world of intensifying confusion of the creation of male and female identities.

Gracequest
In this fascinating spiritual-theological autobiography, Robert Rakestraw tells of his lifelong, unceasing search for God. After a troubled and unconventional childhood, he came to know the grace and freedom of God in a personal way during his college years. He then embarked on an unwavering intellectual and spiritual quest for truth and meaning in life. Without technical language, Rakestraw highlights significant developments and revisions in his understanding of God and God's ways of interacting with the world. In striking and sometimes intimate detail he relates compellingly his experiences as a student, pastor, professor, sufferer, heart-transplant recipient, and above all, seeker of God. Dr. Rakestraw's gripping portrayal of his difficulties and sufferings, especially with regard to health issues, does not come across as depressing. Rather, it presents the sustaining love and goodness of God in such a way that will pull readers in to investigate the remarkable and freely-offered grace of God extolled by the author.

13 Years of Misunderstanding
I have stared death in the face one time too many, but God still provided a way for me to escape. I used to wonder why I never got hit by the bullets that were fired at me by enemies. I didn't realize how close I came to dying or taking someone else's life. As a hustler and a gangster, I tried my best to take a life. I wanted to do whatever it took to earn my stripes but when the opportunity presented itself, I believe God stepped in. No matter how many shots I fired, no one ever got killed. I wanted to tell my story, in hopes of inspiring or shaping/changing the course of someone else's life. I can guarantee that if I were to commit a big crime, the world would definitely know about it. It would make the 6:00 p.m. and the 10:00 p.m news, maybe even Dateline or 60 Minutes. With those possibilities, I felt it was necessary that the world knew that I was given another chance at life.

Secularism and Africa
Secular assumptions underlie much formal communication between the West and Africa, and even intra-Africa. Secularism is dualistic by nature, but thinking in Africa is mostly monistic. This book suggests that it is better to be rooted in faith in Christ than in so-called secularism. The great respect given to the Bible in much of Africa verifies this idea. Communication of and through Christ is a bridge that can enable indigenous sustainable development. The same gospel is the bridge over which the West itself passes. Maintaining supposedly secular presuppositions may be denying sub-Saharan African people the means for self-initiated sustainable progress. This books draws on anthropology, linguistics, and theology, as well as the author's experience of living in Africa. Harries shares an autobiographical account of personal long-term grassroots ministry, and proposes a revision of widely held understandings of linguistics pertaining especially to the relationship between the West and Africa. He also looks at Bible teaching ministry in light of contemporary African contexts.

Hypocrites or Heroes?
It is easy to dismiss the Pharisees as Jesus' implacable adversaries, the hypocrites with whom he frequently debated and who even plotted his downfall. That picture, however, ignores other gospel passages that show Jesus on friendly terms with them. This study explores every New Testament reference to the Pharisees, paying special attention to Jesus' encounters with them, and offers a feasible resolution of the seeming discrepancies. Unlike those proposed by some scholars, this solution preserves the integrity of the gospel texts and also explains other paradoxical aspects of Jesus' ministry. This subject contains more than academic importance. Since much of the gospel record of the actions and teachings of Jesus falls within the context of his encounters with the Pharisees, some knowledge of these people with whom he so frequently engaged is an essential prerequisite to understanding Jesus himself. This study's historical reconstructions of the Pharisee movement origins, of its characteristics at the time of Jesus, and of Jesus' relationship with the Pharisees themselves, provide not only a clearer picture of the social and religious environment in which the Christian faith originated, but also fresh insight into Jesus.

Decide for Yourself
The great Christian doctrines are worth thinking through for ourselves. That's why Gordon Lewis has provided this concise and complete survey of the major truths of the Christian faith. But rather than just telling us what he has discovered in Scripture, he offers a theological workbook that helps us explore the evidence itself and to draw our own conclusions. He has organized the material around the main themes of God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, humanity, creation, the church, and the end times. This unique text has been used by students of the Bible over the last three decades in the classroom, in the home and in the church. Its enduring quality continues to make it a valuable tool for all who want to develop a systematic theology for themselves. Of Lewis's six published books, his Decide for Yourself: A Theological Workbook has been the most versatile. It has been used in informal neighborhood and college Bible studies, church education classes, youth groups, Bible schools, colleges, and seminaries, and extension courses in theological education. It has been translated into Arabic, Chinese, French, Lithuanian, Spanish and Vietnamese. Chapters 1-3 are updated to interact with the postmodernist views of human language.

In this book, fourteen women religious tell their personal stories of the dramatic changes they experienced as a result of the Second Vatican Council. What they described is radical renewal. Their stories chart journeys that took them from school classrooms to the wider world. Varioulsy they went to universities, practiced canon law, became feminist theologians and biblical scholars, and worked with the marginalized and asylum seekers. The sisters' contribution to the educational and cultural life of Australia has been largely anonymous and its significance understated. Within twenty years few religious orders will survive Australia in their current form. This book is a timely record of the experiences of remarkable women. Aimed primarily at the general reader, it also provides material of value to the academic scholar and researcher.

In short, this book is about how and why we come or do not come to God, and what difference it makes.

Shaken Faith
When your faith no longer works, and the catch phrases and Christianese that got you to where you are cannot take you past your current crisis, what do you do? Is doubt okay? Is it okay for Christians to struggle with what they believe? Is it okay to question God? This book takes an honest and in-depth look at faith crises experiences from interviews with sixty people, and five biblical narratives, addressing head-on the issues of doubt and times of questioning one's faith. Shaken Faith outlines a biblical perspective and a fresh way of viewing doubt, the questions Christians experience in their faith, and faith crisis moments. In order for faith to be real, it must be challenged and shaken, so that the depth of the faith can be rooted in an unshakable God.

Laughter Ever After offers a seriously funny theological reflection on the place of laughter and humor in pastoral counseling. Blending academic research, psychological insights, and pastoral advice, this humor-filled book helps those who want to be "Ministers of Good Humor" learn about the human needs to which humor can sensitize us and understand what humor has to offer those who are trying to cope with life's inevitabilities, such as aging, illness, and death.

Written for a wide audience, Laughter Ever After would serve as a great tool for any pastor, minister, or churchgoer. It can even be used as a self-help book for anyone in need of a laugh or who appreciates a good joke. By showing us where humor's place in ministry is, Capps teaches us that laughter can help in almost any situation

God's Creative Gift-Unleashing the Artist in You
Description: God's Creative Gift is an in-depth study for the creative Christian. It is intended for both professional and lay artists, for the casual crafter and hobbyist, and for those in both sacred and secular settings. It is for those who see things where others do not and for those whose imaginations cannot be confined by religious dogma and tradition. It is for musicians, singers, painters, sculptors, dancers, dramatists, writers, poets, carvers, weavers, film editors, photographers, filmmakers, architects, designers--anyone who finds inspiration in creativity. Focusing on the creative spirit within, it is designed to help you draw your inspiration from a Deeper Source. It is deeply rooted in Scripture--for the creative Christian must enter into the Word of God on a regular basis in order to know the choreographer of her steps, the crafter of her designs, the author and perfecter of her faith, and the sculptor of her creative heart, soul, mind, and body. And to know Him intimately. Endorsements: ""God's Creative Gift is, simply stated, a beautiful gift for the people of God. Integrating Scripture, experience, and insights from a broad spectrum of scholars and practitioners, Jody Thomae provides a pathway to freedom and well-being available through creative expression. She reveals that we, the creative gift of the Father, hold within the potential to unleash beauty and healing creative gifts as acts of worship to God and healing to one another. An amazing thought!"" --Terry Wardle, Ashland Theological Seminary ""In God's Creative Gift, Jody Thomae emboldens every artist--amateur and professional, aspiring and accomplished, bold and hesitant--to embrace the power and potential of creativity in all its forms as a mode of worshipping the Creator. Through enriching chapters and devotional studies, artists will grow in deeper understanding of themselves and God's relationship to their creativity. A necessary book for every creative spirit!"" --Sarah M. Wells, author of Pruning Burning Bushes ""This is a wonderfully insightful book [of] excellent theological and biblical reflection that invites its readers to know themselves as created in the image and likeness of God, the Divine Artist. The 'Digging Deeper' sections, which enable readers to embody the various themes of the book, add style and grace to her work."" --Robert VerEecke, SJ, Jesuit artist-in-residence, Boston College About the Contributor(s): Jody Thomae has been involved in worship arts ministries since 1997. Her passion is for the revelation of God to be made real through the prophetic use of the arts in our churches and ministries.

A Future for American Evangelicalism
This book proposes that participation in "God's Project of Reconciliation" is the "Center" that can hold evangelical Christians together in the midst of great diversity in belief and ecclesiastical practices. The author envisions a vibrant future for the Evangelical movement if professing evangelicals can model that rare combination of deep commitment to their own beliefs; openness to listening to the beliefs of others; and willingness to engage in respectful conversation with those who disagree with them in place of the combativeness that has characterized too much of Evangelicalism in the recent past. The book models this type of conversation on such controversial issues as the exclusivity of Christianity, the inerrancy of the bible, Evangelicalism and morality, Evangelicalism and politics, scientific models on humanity, cosmic and human origins, and the future of evangelical higher education.
