A SHELTERING TREE (Inspirational Stories of Faith, Fidelity, and Friendship; by Peter C. Wilcox; foreword by John T. Ford; Imprint: Wipf and Stock). When we think about the lives of the saints, we can easily forget that they were people just like us--with all the same struggles, temptations, joys, and sorrows we experience in life. They were not born saints; they became saints. And in the course of their journeys through life, other people helped them become the people that God wanted...

THE TABERNACLING PRESENCE OF GOD (Mission and Gospel Witness; by Susan Maxwell Booth; foreword by Michael W. Goheen; Imprint: Wipf and Stock). Although a large majority of believers agree that they should share their faith, most report that they, in fact, do not. That's not really all that surprising given today's pluralistic cultural setting. But maybe this same culture's longing for transcendence, community, and a place to call home points to a backstory that makes sense of it all. If…

LIVING IN-BETWEEN (Lament, Justice, and the Persistence of the Gospel; by Andre Resner; Imprint: Wipf and Stock). The community of faith finds itself located precariously between Jesus' first and second comings, between the promise and fulfillment, between what God has begun in the gospel and what God has yet to complete. It thus finds itself proclaiming a gospel of life, love, hope, and faith in a world more characterized by death, hate, despair, and fear. The gospel insists that Jesus'...
