  • They Were Soldiers

    $19.99

    They Were Soldiers showcases the inspiring true stories of 49 Vietnam veterans who returned home from the lost war to enrich America’s present and future.

    In this groundbreaking new book, Joseph L. Galloway, distinguished war correspondent and New York Times bestselling author of We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young, and Marvin J. Wolf, Vietnam veteran and award-winning author, reveal the private lives of those who returned from Vietnam to make astonishing contributions in science, medicine, business, and other arenas, and change America for the better.

    For decades, the soldiers who served in Vietnam were shunned by the American public and ignored by their government. Many were vilified or had their struggles to reintegrate into society magnified by distorted depictions of veterans as dangerous or demented. Even today, Vietnam veterans have not received their due. Until now. These profiles are touching and courageous, and often startling.

    They include veterans both known and unknown, including:

    *Frederick Wallace (“Fred”) Smith, CEO and founder of FedEx

    *Marshall Carter, chairman of the New York Stock Exchange

    *Justice Eileen Moore, appellate judge who also serves as a mentor in California’s Combat Veterans Court

    *Richard Armitage, former deputy secretary of state under Colin Powell

    *Guion “Guy” Bluford Jr., first African American in space

    Engrossing, moving, and eye-opening, They Were Soldiers is a magnificent tribute that gives long overdue honor and recognition to the soldiers of this forgotten generation.

  • Fierce Mercy : Daring To Live Out God’s Compassion In Bold And Practical Wa

    $16.99

    Abby Johnson thought she knew what mercy was when she ushered desperate women toward abortion as the director of a Planned Parenthood facility. She was wrong.

  • Leftovers : Baylor, Betrayal, And Beyond

    $16.99

    Ever since he was a young boy, Matt Sayman wanted to play basketball. He played for hours on end, studied other players, and attended numerous basketball camps. His family believed in his dream, too, even agreeing to move to Texas when one of Matt’s favorite coaches left Pennsylvania for the Lone Star State.

    Matt eventually received a full athletic scholarship from Baylor University. He was only six-feet-four but what he lacked in height, he made up for in skill and positive attitude. He was destined to go pro after graduation.

    Then the summer before his senior year, the bottom falls out of Matt’s world. A player goes missing…and is found dead. A teammate is the murder suspect. A coach is accused of paying players under the table. Some receive drug-free urine samples to pass off as their own. And through it all, Matt is supposed to be the glue who holds the Baylor basketball team together.

    In The Leftovers: Baylor, Betrayal, and Beyond, Matt shares his personal story of dealing with the fallout after tragedy and trouble nearly sank Baylor’s program. Matt was senior co-captain, but with a short-manned team of leftover players, there was no way to have a winning season. There was no way some talent scout would take a chance on him.

    Matt’s hope and faith were shaken because of the scandals that summer. He had just turned twenty-one in January and began to party and drink heavily. His post-Baylor years included a DWI, a difficult divorce, and broken relationships. Matt struggled to find peace. On his thirtieth birthday, just a few days after a deep conversation with his pastor, Matt said goodbye to alcohol and surrendered his life to God. This book tells the story of Matt’s personal redemption.

    The Leftovers is also a story of the redemption of Baylor University’s men’s basketball program; Matt’s team with a young new head coach forged the Baylor team that won the 2021 NCAA men’s basketball championship.

    In this book you’ll encounter–through words and images–the uplifting story of George Sweeting and his beloved wife, Hilda. You’ll discern the providential hand of God as He brings the Sweetings’ lives full circle. Both of George’s parents were converted in Scotland by the ministry of D. L. Moody. Then, in God’s perfect timing, He brought George into two leadership positions connected with this great evangelist–first, as pastor of the historic Moody Church in downtown Chicago, and second, as the sixth president of the school that Moody founded: the Moody Bible Institute.

    Along the way, God gave the Sweetings a deep heart for evangelism. Whether it was preaching in evangelistic crusades or sending missionaries to the foreign field, George has always been passionate about winning souls for Christ. “Our supreme task is world evangelization in this generation!” was the constant cry of his heart.

    From humble beginnings, to academic leadership, to friendship with a U.S. president, God used George and Hilda Sweeting to make an impact on the world. Lives lived for Christ from start to finish are hard to find these days–yet deeply encouraging when God brings them before our eyes. So enter into the story of the Sweetings and find your spirit refreshed by their legacy of faithfulness. And as you read, ask yourself, “Lord, how do you want to bring my life full circle as well?”

  • Things I Should Have Said

    $26.00

    In this intimate memoir, actress and musician Jamie Lynn Spears opens up for the first time, telling her unfiltered story on her own terms.

    You’ve read the headlines, but you don’t know Jamie Lynn Spears. The world first met Jamie Lynn as a child star, when it was her job to perform, both on set and for the press. She spent years escaping into different characters-on All That, Zoey 101, and even in the role as Britney’s kid sister. But as she grew up, faced a teen pregnancy, raised her daughter on her own, pursued a career, and learned to stand on her own two feet, the real Jamie Lynn started to take center stage- a raw, blemished, and imperfect woman, standing in her own power.

    Despite growing up in one of America’s most tabloid-famous families, Jamie Lynn has never told her story in her own words. In Things I Should Have Said, she talks frankly about the highs and lows, sharing what it was like traveling the world as a kid, how she moved into acting and performing herself, what life as a child star took from her, and the life-changing reality of becoming a teen mom. She talks about how she finally found love and how the mistakes she has made have taught her more than anything else. She also shares vulnerably about how the ATV accident that nearly took her daughter’s life brought her back to her faith and caused her to reevaluate and redirect her life.

    Frank, courageous, and inspiring, Things I Should Have Said is a portrait of a wife, momma, sister, daughter, actress, and musician doing the best she could to show up for herself and teach her daughters to have the courage to love every part of themselves, too.

  • Disarmed : The Radical Life And Legacy Of Michael MJ Sharp

    $17.99

    A powerful story of one man’s radical commitment to peacemaking.

    At 34 years old, Michael “MJ” Sharp was working for the United Nations Group of Experts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo–urging rebels to lay down their weapons–when he was murdered, likely assassinated alongside his colleague Zaida Catalan by those with government ties. This compelling account of MJ’s life, death, and legacy from longtime journalist Marshall V. King explores what compelled Sharp to travel the world working for peace and the ongoing impact of his life and death in the ongoing story of Christian peacemaking in a war-torn world.

    MJ was a modern Mennonite armed with wit and intellect, but not a gun. The son of a Mennonite pastor, he demonstrated a gift for listening and persuading early in life. His efforts to approach others with acknowledgement rather than judgement gave him the ability to connect on a level very few managed. He also honed a deep commitment to peace, and after college he joined the Mennonite Mission Network and moved to Germany, where he persuaded soldiers to choose peace and free them of their violent systems.

    $17.99

    The true story of Black activist Opal Lee and her vision of Juneteenth as a holiday for everyone celebrates Black joy and inspires children to see their dreams blossom. Growing up in Texas, Opal knew the history of Juneteenth, but she soon discovered that many Americans had never heard of the holiday that represents the nation’s creed of “freedom for all.”

    Every year, Opal looked forward to the Juneteenth picnic–a drumming, dancing, delicious party. She knew from Granddaddy Zak’s stories that Juneteenth celebrated the day the freedom news of President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation finally sailed into Texas in 1865–over two years after the president had declared it! But Opal didn’t always see freedom in her Texas town. Then one Juneteenth day when Opal was twelve years old, an angry crowd burned down her brand-new home. This wasn’t freedom at all. She had to do something! Opal Lee spent the rest of her life speaking up for equality and unity. She became a teacher, a charity worker, and a community leader. At the age of 89, she walked from Fort Worth, Texas to Washington, D.C., in an effort to gain national recognition for Juneteenth.

    Through the story of Opal Lee’s determination and persistence, children ages 4 to 8 will learn:
    *all people are created equal
    *the power of bravery and using your voice for change
    *the history of Juneteenth, or Freedom Day, and what it means today
    *no one is free unless everyone is free
    *fighting for a dream is worth every difficulty

    Featuring the illustrations of New York Times bestselling illustrator Keturah A. Bobo (I am Enough), Opal Lee and What It Means to Be Free celebrates the life and legacy of a modern-day Black leader while sharing a message of hope, unity, joy, and strength.

  • Daughter Of Destiny

  • Beyond Valor : A World War II Story Of Extraordinary Heroism, Sacrificial L

    $18.99

    Beyond Valor is one soldier’s extraordinary tale of bravery, heroism, faith, and devotion.

    On April 12, 1945, a fleet of American B-29 bombers flew toward Japan. Their mission was simple: stop World War II by burning the cities, factories, and military bases of the Japanese em­pire, thereby forcing an unconditional surren­der. Yet the mission did not go as planned. On board one of the B-29s, the City of Los Angeles, a phosphorus bomb detonated inside the plane. Staff Sergeant Henry E. “Red” Erwin absorbed the blast of burning phosphorus yet managed to throw overboard the still-flaming bomb, before collapsing from the third-degree burns over much of his body.

    Breaking protocol, the plane diverted to a military hospital at Iwo Jima. President Truman quickly ordered that Erwin be awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest honor of the American military, before the young airman died of his wounds. There was just one problem: no Medals of Honor were available in the entire Pacific theater. General Curtis LeMay dispatched a squad of airmen on a 1,000-mile mission to smash their way into a display case and steal a medal to give to Erwin before time ran out.

    Meanwhile, Red’s courageous young bride set out on her own mission, one of against-all-odds healing. Her success would determine the fate of the twenty-three-year-old warrior–and years later make possible the birth of the book’s author: their grandson, Jon Erwin.

    Drawn from in-depth interviews with eyewitnesses and deep archival research, Beyond Valor is an extraordinary tale of bravery, heroism, faith, and devotion.

  • Up And Down

    $26.99

    He was a small-town boy who burst onto the international golf scene with a dramatic hook shot from deep in the woods to win the Masters– before the game he loved almost killed him. Opening up about the toll that chasing and achieving his dream of being a champion golfer took on his mental health, Bubba Watson shares his powerful story of the breaking point that gave him clarity.

    Bubba Watson is known as the big-hitting left-handed golfer who plays with the pink driver–the small-town kid who grew up as a child golf prodigy before going on to win two Masters Tournaments, competing in the Olympics, and rising to be the number two golfer in the world.

    But every dream comes with a price. Feeling that he was never good enough, Bubba began to let the constant criticism from fans and commentators haunt his thoughts. Success in the game he loved was killing him.

    In Up and Down, Bubba opens up about his debilitating anxiety attacks, the death of his father and namesake, adopting his children, and how reaching a breaking point professionally and personally drew him closer to his family and God.

    Golf is what Bubba Watson does, but it is not who he is. Through his story, you’ll learn how Bubba:

    *Overcame his anxiety and feelings of inadequacy
    *Found his true identity not in the standards of the world, but in the God who already knows he is enough
    *Learned to trust God with his gifts, family, and biggest dreams
    *Became the husband, father, friend, and mentor he was called to be

    Life, like golf, is filled with ups and downs. Up and Down is the inspiring story of an imperfect man striving to become the best person he can be–wherever the course may take him.

  • Nerves Of Steel

    $19.99

    Now available in trade paper!

    Nerves of Steel is the captivating true story of Tammie Jo Shults’s remarkable life-from growing up the daughter of a humble rancher, to breaking through gender barriers as one of the Navy’s first female F/A-18 Hornet pilots, to safely landing the severely crippled Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 and helping save the lives of 148 people.

    Tammie Jo Shults has spent her entire life loving the skies. Though the odds were against her, she became one of the few female fighter pilots in the Navy. In 1994, after serving her country honorably for eight years, Tammie Jo left the Navy and joined Southwest Airlines in the early 1990’s.

    On April 17, 2018, Tammie Jo was called to service once again. Twenty minutes into a routine domestic flight, Captain Shults was faced with the unthinkable-a catastrophic engine failure in the Boeing 737 caused an explosion that severed hydraulic and fuel lines, tearing away sections of the plane, puncturing a window, and taking a woman’s life. Captain Shults and her first officer, Darren Ellisor, struggled to stabilize the aircraft.

    Drawing deeply from her well of experience, Tammie Jo was able to wrestle the severely damaged 737 safely to the ground. Not originally scheduled for that flight, there is no doubt God had prepared her and placed her right where she needed to be that day.

  • Perfectly You : Embracing The Power Of Being Real

    $18.99

    Now available in trade paper! In this much-needed book, which is part self-help and part autobiography, award-winning correspondent Mariana Atencio digs into what makes each of us special and the ways in which we can become a force for good in a broken world.

    As a bilingual correspondent for NBC News, Fusion TV, and Univision, Mariana holds a unique perspective–having immigrated from Venezuela to America as a young adult, having overcome challenges to graduate from Columbia University and eventually become a national news correspondent, and having seen firsthand the humanity that is ever so present in the midst of both adversity and opportunity.

    Mariana’s story is the powerful, inspiring story of life in the United States as an immigrant. Yet it is at its core a human story. It is all of our stories, and it is a call to every man, woman, and child to unlock the magic of their potential and begin to thrive.

    The media screens of today perpetuate stereotypes, but what would happen if instead of comparing ourselves and falling short, we compared ourselves and celebrated our uniqueness? What would happen if we believed in our worth and embraced what makes us different? And what if we truly saw those around us as neighbors and not merely adversaries to our particular group or station?

    The days of doubt and division must end. It starts with authenticity, persistence, and understanding what truly makes you special.

  • Fear Gone Wild

    $18.99

    A pastor’s wife’s shattering yet ultimately hopeful story of her husband’s death by suicide, her journey to understand mental illness, and the light she found in the darkness.

    On August 25, 2018, Kayla Stoecklein lost her husband, Andrew–megachurch pastor of Inland Hills Church in Chino, California–to suicide. In the wake of the tragedy, she embarked on a brave journey to better understand his harrowing battle with mental illness and, ultimately, to overcome the stigma of suicide.

    Fear Gone Wild is her intimate account of all that led to that tragic day, including her husband’s panic attacks and debilitating bouts of anxiety and depression. Despite their deep faith in God and the countless prayers of many believers, Andrew was never healed of his illness. Turning to Scripture for answers, she discovered that God uses wilderness experiences to prepare His children–including Jesus–for his greater purpose and to work miracles inside our souls.

    With a clear-eyed acknowledgment of how misguided and misinformed she was about mental illness, Kayla Stoecklein shares her story in hopes that anyone walking through the wilderness of mental illness will be better equipped for the journey and will learn to put their hope in Jesus through it all.

  • Where The Light Fell

    $28.00

    In this searing meditation on the bonds of family and the danger of extremist faith, one of today’s most celebrated Christian writers recounts his unexpected journey from a strict fundamentalist upbringing to a life of compassion and grace-a revelatory memoir in the tradition of Educated and Hillbilly Elegy.

    Raised by an impoverished widow who earned room and board as a Bible teacher in 1950s Atlanta, Philip Yancey and his brother, Marshall, found ways to venture out beyond the confines of their eight-foot-wide trailer. But when Yancey was in college, he uncovered a shocking secret about his father’s death-a secret that began to illuminate the motivations that drove his mother to extreme, often hostile religious convictions and a belief that her sons had been ordained for a divine cause.

    Searching for answers, Yancey dives into his family origins, taking us on an evocative journey from the backwoods of the Bible Belt to the bustling streets of Philadelphia; from trailer parks to church sanctuaries; from family oddballs to fire-and-brimstone preachers and childhood awakenings through nature, music, and literature. In time, the weight of religious and family pressure sent both sons on opposite paths-one toward healing from the impact of what he calls a “toxic faith,” the other into a self-destructive spiral.

    Where the Light Fell is a gripping family narrative set against a turbulent time in post-World War II America, shaped by the collision of Southern fundamentalism with the mounting pressures of the civil rights movement and Sixties-era forces of social change. In piecing together his fragmented personal history and his search for redemption, Yancey gives testament to the enduring power of our hunger for truth and the possibility of faith rooted in grace instead of fear.

    “I truly believe this is the one book I was put on earth to write,” says Yancey. “So many of the strands from my childhood-racial hostility, political division, culture wars-have resurfaced in modern form. Looking back points me forward.”

  • Deep Places : A Memoir Of Illness And Discovery

    $26.00

    In this vulnerable, insightful memoir, the New York Times columnist tells the story of his five-year struggle with a disease that officially doesn’t exist, exploring the limits of modern medicine, the stories that we unexpectedly fall into, and the secrets that only suffering reveals.

    In the summer of 2015, Ross Douthat was moving his family, with two young daughters and a pregnant wife, from Washington, D.C., to a sprawling farmhouse in a picturesque Connecticut town when he acquired a mysterious and devastating sickness. It left him sleepless, crippled, wracked with pain–a shell of himself. After months of seeing doctors and descending deeper into a physical inferno, he discovered that he had a disease which according to CDC definitions does not actually exist: the chronic form of Lyme disease, a hotly contested condition that devastates the lives of tens of thousands of people but has no official recognition–and no medically approved cure.

    From a rural dream house that now felt like a prison, Douthat’s search for help takes him off the map of official medicine, into territory where cranks and conspiracies abound and patients are forced to take control of their own treatment and experiment on themselves. Slowly, against his instincts and assumptions, he realizes that many of the cranks and weirdos are right, that many supposed “hypochondriacs” are victims of an indifferent medical establishment, and that all kinds of unexpected experiences and revelations lurk beneath the surface of normal existence, in the places underneath.

    The Deep Places is a story about what happens when you are terribly sick and realize that even the doctors who are willing to treat you can only do so much. Along the way, Douthat describes his struggle back toward health with wit and candor, portraying sickness as the most terrible of gifts. It teaches you to appreciate the grace of ordinary life by taking that life away from you. It reveals the deep strangeness of the world, the possibility that the reasonable people might be wrong, and the necessity of figuring out things for yourself. And it proves, day by dreadful day, that you are stronger than you ever imagined, and that even in the depths there is always hope.

  • Curveball : How I Discovered True Fulfillment After Chasing Fortune And Fam

    $18.99

    After watching his career as a professional baseball player go down in flames, Cy Young Award-winner Barry Zito discovered a real connection with God and a renewed passion for life.

    In 2007, pitcher Barry Zito signed a seven-year, $126 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. At that time, it was the largest contract ever given to a pitcher. He was at the top of his game, in peak physical condition, and had the kind of financial security most people can only dream of.

    He was also miserable. And it began to show. Zito’s career declined over the next few years until he hit rock bottom-watching from the bench as his team won the World Series in 2010.
    In the months that followed, Zito came face-to-face with the destructiveness of his own ego-his need to be viewed as the best. He also came face-to-face with God and with the truth that he was loved no matter what he achieved.

    In Curveball, Zito shares his story with honesty and transparency. The ups and the downs. The wins and losses. By sharing his experiences as a man who had everything except happiness, Zito offers readers a path through adversity and toward a life defined by true success.

  • Who Says I Cant

  • Redeeming Justice : From Defendant To Defender, My Fight For Equity On Both

    $27.00

    He was seventeen when an all-white jury sentenced him to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Now, in this unforgettable memoir, a pioneering lawyer recalls the journey that led to his exoneration–and inspired him to devote his life to fighting the many injustices in our legal system.

    Seventeen years old and facing nearly thirty years behind bars, Jarrett Adams sought to figure out the why behind his fate. He became obsessed with our legal system in all its damaged glory. In prison, Adams was sustained by his mother and aunts, who brought him back from the edge of despair through letters of prayers and encouragement. After studying the law and realizing how his Constitutional rights to effective assistance of counsel had been violated, he solicited a relationship with the Wisconsin Innocence Project, an organization that exonerates the wrongfully convicted, which ultimately led to his release from prison after nearly ten years.

    But the journey was far from over. Adams took the lessons he learned through his incarceration and enrolled in law school with the goal of helping those who, like himself, were wrongfully convicted. After earning his law degree, he worked with the New York Innocence Project, becoming the first exoneree ever hired by the Innocence Project as a lawyer. He has since opened up his own practice, specializing in overturning wrongful convictions and reducing unfair and extreme sentences. In his first case with the Innocence Project, he argued before the same courtroom that convicted him a decade prior–and won.

    In this cinematic story of hope and full-circle redemption, Adams draws on his life and the cases of his clients to show the racist tactics used to convict young men of color, the unique challenges facing exonerees post-exoneration, and how the lack of equal financial representation in our legal system is a failure not only of empathy but of our collective ability to discover the truth. Justice for Sale is an unforgettable firsthand account of the limits–and possibilities–of our country’s system of law.

  • Finding The Good

    $17.99

    In the vein of Tuesdays with Morrie comes a powerful story of a twentieth-century slave who rose to the rank of mayor and the young reporter whose life he touched as he learned of the transforming power of faith and love–now updated and repackaged.

    Fred Montgomery, the son of sharecroppers in west Tennessee and boyhood friend of Alex Haley, grew up in poverty but had faith and confidence instilled in him by his parents. Fred worked hard and acquired his own farm in spite of opposition from his white neighbors. After losing two of his sons in separate drowning accidents, Fred tried twice to commit suicide. But Fred’s attitude was changed when he experienced sympathy and love shown to him by his neighbors, white and black alike. In 1988 he proved that faith and love can prevail by becoming the first black mayor of the once strongly segregated Henning, Tennessee.

    While telling this story, reporter Lucas Johnson shows glimpses of his own life, in which many of his relatives, including his own father, succumbed to the lure of alcohol and drugs. Lucas Johnson lost all hope. He had no faith; he had no love. Until he met Fred Montgomery. “Years have passed,” he concludes, “since I first met Fred Montgomery . . . I’m a better person because of him. His life . . . gave me a credible blueprint on how to deal with life’s problems and even grow stronger from them.”

  • Grateful American : A Journey From Self To Service

    $18.99

    As a kid in suburban Chicago, Gary Sinise was more interested in sports and rock ‘n’ roll than reading or schoolwork. But when he impulsively auditioned for a school production of West Side Story, he found his purpose–or so it seemed.

    Within a few years Gary and a handful of friends created what became one of the most exciting and important new theater companies in America. From its humble beginnings in a suburban Chicago church basement and eventual move into the city, the Steppenwolf Theatre Company launched a series of groundbreaking productions, igniting Gary’s career along with those of John Malkovich, Joan Allen, Gary Cole, Laurie Metcalf, Jeff Perry, John Mahoney, and others. Television and film came calling soon after, and Gary starred in Of Mice and Men (which he also directed) and The Stand before taking the role that would change his life in unforeseeable ways: Lieutenant Dan in the Academy Award-winning Forrest Gump.

    The military community’s embrace of the character of the disabled veteran was matched only by the depth of Gary’s realization that America’s defenders had not received all the honor, respect, and gratitude their sacrifices deserve.

  • Brave Face : Two Cultures, Two Families, And The Iraqi Girl Who Bound Them

    $18.99

    The inspirational story of an American woman who moved mountains to secure medical treatments-and eventually a home-for a severely burned Iraqi girl thousands of miles away. Now available in trade paper.

    It was a typical Sunday morning in 2006 when Barbara Marlowe first saw the photo that changed her life-a photo of four-year-old Teeba Furat Fadhil, whose face, head, and hands had been severely burned during a roadside bombing in the Diyala Province of Iraq. It was Teeba’s eyes that captivated Barbara. They were wide, dark, and soulful. They seemed to cry out across oceans with a single message: Help me

    Barbara’s story of responding to that cry is as inspiring as it is improbable. With a powerful faith and determination, she overcame obstacle after obstacle to bring Teeba to the United States for medical treatments-and unexpectedly, to ultimately offer her a home.

    A Brave Face includes material written by Teeba, now a young woman, and her Iraqi mother, Dunia, at key moments in their stories. The book also explores the connection forged between Barbara and Dunia over the past decade-a deep bond between two mothers that has flourished despite the distance, the strife of war, and the horrors of Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

    In the end, this is a story of hope. A story of building bridges. A story of the always astonishing power of self-sacrificial love.

  • Faithful Presence : The Promise And The Peril Of Faith In The Public Square

    $26.99

    Two-term governor of Tennessee Bill Haslam reveals how faith–too often divisive and contentious–can be a redemptive and unifying presence in the public square.

    As a former mayor and governor, Bill Haslam has long been at the center of politics and policy on local, state, and federal levels. And he has consistently been guided by his faith, which influenced his actions on issues ranging from capital punishment to pardons, health care to abortion, welfare to free college tuition. Yet the place of faith in public life has been hotly debated since our nation’s founding, and the relationship of church and state remains contentious to this day–and for good reason. Too often, Bill Haslam argues, Christians end up shaping their faith to fit their politics rather than forming their politics to their faith. They seem to forget their calling is to be used by God in service of others rather than to use God to reach their own desires and ends.

    Faithful Presence calls for a different way. Drawing upon his years of public service, Haslam casts a remarkable vision for the redemptive role of faith in politics while examining some of the most complex issues of our time, including:
    *partisanship in our divided era;
    *the most essential character trait for a public servant;
    *how we cannot escape “legislating morality”;
    *the answer to perpetual outrage; and
    *how to think about the separation of church and state.

    For Christians ready to be salt and light, as well as for those of a different faith or no faith at all, Faithful Presence argues that faith can be a redemptive, healing presence in the public square–as it must be, if our nation is to flourish.
