What Is God’s Mission in the World and How Do We Join It?
by Juan F. Martinez

Juan F. Martínez leads us on an inquiry into God’s mission in the world: what it is, what it is not, and who is invited to be part of it. If Jesus is truly God’s mission incarnate, we need to look at what Jesus did and how he did it. Martínez helps readers understand what mission means, why Christians in the past have made missteps, and how we can learn from Christian communities that are spreading the good news of Jesus today. Doing mission in the way of Jesus may look different from what many assume, but it is a call that the church cannot afford to miss.

by Steve Dancause

Steve Dancause offers a succinct and profound investigation into how what we think about God as Trinity matters in our faith, our work, and our love.

With the right foundation, the structure holds, and it stands the test of eternity. And it is only in Jesus, and the Trinity he reveals to us, that we build our lives on solid rock. Let’s dig down together.

What is the goal of enemy love and how can it be applied in our everyday lives? This book won’t answer every question about a Christian practice of nonviolence, but it will lead toward a deeper faith as we consider how to live with enemies in a violent world.
