  • Cloud Of Witnesses

    $19.99

    Indonesia is home to the oldest Mennonite community outside of Europe and North America. Author John D. Roth traces the 170 year history of Mennonites in Indonesia alongside the larger cultural and religious history of the country.

    By weaving the legacy of European colonization and Dutch Mennonite missions into the history of the indigenous Anabaptist Mennonite churches in Indonesia, Roth creates a rich narrative tapestry.

    A Cloud of Witnesses traces the emergence of the three Mennonite related groups found today in Indonesia.

    Like all churches, they have each integrated the good news of the gospel with the local culture, ethnic identity, religious currents, and national history in a distinctive way.

    In July 2022, these three Mennonite groups in Indonesia will collaboratively host the seventeenth global assembly of Mennonite World Conference in Semarang, Java.

    A Cloud of Witnesses helps to orient other members of the global Anabaptist Mennonite church to the history and identity of this unique group of churches while also providing practical travel tips, recipes, reference notes on culture and language and tourist sites —
    making it the perfect accompaniment for those who plan to travel to Indonesia for Mennonite World Conference in the summer of 2022.

  • On The End Of The World And On Hell

    $59.99

    In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, God creates the heavens, the earth, the sea, and all of its things. It’s only fitting that in the last two chapters in the last book of the Bible, Revelation, that He reveals what is to happen at the end of creation and the world. This Theological Commonplace looks at the End of the Word, Hell, and Eternal Death.

    In this translation of Johann Gerhard’s work, the reader will be introduced to the onomatology of different words and phrases at the beginning of each topic before diving into crucial questions about the topic. Pulling from Scripture and addressing questions such as Is there a hell? or Will the end of the world come? the reader will be able to see sound biblical arguments answering these questions. Additionally, the antithesis is given room to be discussed to show how both sides of the argument have come to fruition.

  • What Is Gods Mission In The World And How Do We Join It

    $12.99

    What does God’s mission look like? Who is supposed to carry it out–and how?

    Juan F. Martinez and Jamie Pitts lead 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. Martinez 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.

  • Listening Together : Global Anglican Perspectives On Renewal Of Prayer And

    $15.00

    With 85 million members in more than 165 countries, the Anglican Communion represents a wide variety of opinions on mission, theology, and how to live and act as God’s people. Listening Together focuses on the renewal of prayer and the religious life, with stories and reflections from faithful leaders from across the Communion.

    Nothing is more important to our relationship with God than prayer through Jesus Christ, says Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury. Renewal of the religious life and renewal of prayer go hand in hand: There will not be one without the other. It is about letting God into every last part of our life.

    Listening Together is the third of a three-book series to help Anglicans around the world discuss shared challenges and opportunities for mission and ministry.

  • History Of The Black Baptist Church

    $16.99

    The history of black people in the United States is a history of challenge and resilience, of suffering and solidarity, of injustice and prophetic resistance. It is a history steeped in the hope and strength that African Americans have derived from their faith in God and from the church that provided safety, community, consolation, and empowerment. In this new volume from pastor and scholar Rev. Dr. Wayne Croft, the history of the black Baptist church unfolds-from its theological roots in the Radical Reformation of Europe and North America, to the hush arbors and praise houses of slavery’s invisible institution, to the evolution of distinctively black denominations. In a wonderfully readable narrative style, the author relates the development of diverse black Baptist associations and conventions, from the eighteenth century through the twentieth century’s civil rights movement. Ideal for clergy and laity alike, the book highlights key leaders, theological concepts, historic events, and social concerns that influenced the growth of what we know today as the diverse black Baptist family of churches.

  • Where The People Go

    $19.99

    A barn raising. A quilting bee. A credit union. A socially responsible investment.

    Where the People Go tells the story of Anabaptist-Mennonite efforts to enable communal forms of sharing. Mutual aid, stewardship, and generosity are deeply embedded in the Christian faith and have been actively nurtured among Anabaptist-Mennonite groups. Spontaneous forms of assistance–a barn raising, a quilting bee, shared meals–are the best-known expressions of such compassion and generosity, but the commitment to sharing one another’s burdens has also found expression in more formal structures.

    Seventy-five years ago, Mennonite Mutual Aid emerged to organize the principle of sharing within a growing Mennonite denomination. A dynamic organization from the beginning, MMA moved quickly from a burial and survivor’s aid plan to include health, property, and automobile insurance. In coming decades, the organization shifted its focus from mutual aid to stewardship and generosity, symbolized by a growing emphasis on socially responsible investment programs, wholistic health, financial planning, and services associated with its member-owned credit union. Always an agency of the Mennonite church, MMA, now known as Everence, has balanced its spiritual commitments with an increasingly complex regulatory environment, the national strains associated with the health-care debate, the shifting sensibilities of its customers, and the organizational complexities of a major corporation.

    This story of Everence captures the stresses and idealism of a church-related institution committed to mutual aid, stewardship, and generosity during its seventy-five-year history.

  • What Is The Trinity And Why Does It Matter

    $12.99

    How is the one God also three persons? How is Jesus fully God and fully human? Who in the world should we pray to? And why does any of it matter?

    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. It matters because the walls of our churches are cracking around us. We can keep patching things up, but it is better to go to the foundation and do the hard digging. 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.

Is pain always redemptive? And what do the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus reveal about suffering? We may not find answers to all our questions, but we can lean into the God big enough to absorb all of them.

  • My Brothers Keeper

    $8.50

    As Christians, we believe all humans are one extended family descended from Adam and Eve. Yet we may have difficulty seeing a family resemblance or feeling a blood kinship with people from other nationalities, ethnicities, or races. Differences, real and perceived, can lead to fear and mistrust. Being part of the human family doesn’t guarantee loving relationships-even the first family was plagued by hatred and violence.

    My Brother’s Keeper discusses the history of race relations, looks at how Mennonites have responded to racial diversity in the past, and suggests Biblical responses to issues such as interracial marriage, transracial adoptions, race-based privilege, and political correctness.

    Our homes and churches can be a foreshadowing of the fellowship of Heaven, where the Bible describes a multiethnic multitude praising God together.

  • Eating Together Becoming One

    $29.95

    In November 2015, Pope Francis called on theologians to explore whether normal Catholic practice should be changed to allow Christians, belonging to other churches, to share fully at the table when they take part in a Eucharist celebrated by Catholics. Thomas O’Loughlin provides his contribution to that challenge in this volume. He argues that the various ways of thinking about what we are doing in the liturgy should lead us to see intercommunion as enhancing our participation in the mystery of the Church and the mystery we celebrate.

  • Discovering Pope Francis

    $29.95

    The dangerous tendency to reduce theological positions to political ones has always fueled divisions in the Church, and it plagues debates surrounding Pope Francis’s teaching today. This collection of essays was born of a landmark international symposium designed to promote theological understanding by contextualizing the thought of Pope Francis–from his understanding of history to his theology of mission–within important theological conversations rarely heard in the US Catholic Church. Its contributors demonstrate decisively that Pope Francis’s magisterium is the fruit of a profound and distinctive, yet deeply Catholic, intellectual engagement with the theological and ecclesial traditions of the Church.

    Contributors include: Austen Ivereigh, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, Rodrigo Guerra Lopez, Bishop Robert Barron, Massimo Borghesi, Susan K. Wood, SCL, Rocco Buttiglione, Guzman Carriquiry Lecour, Peter J. Casarella, Brian Y. Lee, Thomas L. Knoebel

  • 7th Day Adventist Reform Movement

    $5.99

    The author of this booklet grew up in a family devoted to the teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Reform Movement. His father served in the ministry in the United States. Pastor Kramer himself eventually entered the worker force of the Reform Movement and, together with his wife, gave many years of dedicated service both in the field and later in responsible administrative posts.

    In these pages Pastor Kramer recounts his pilgrimage of faith which eventually led him and his family to leave the church of his childhood and active labors to become a Seventh-day Adventist. In telling his experience he examines in a kind and honest manner the basic doctrines which separate the Reform Movement from the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

  • Search For Identity

    $12.99

    How did we come to believe what we believe? How have those beliefs changed over the years? With compelling candor George Knight captures the ebb and flow of the doctrinal currents within Adventism, including controversies over the shut door, the law in Galatians at the 1888 General Conference, the Trinity, pantheism, Fundamentalism, the nature of Christ, and inspiration.The Adventist Church was founded by independent thinkers who would have disagreed with several of the church’s current 27 fundamental beliefs. But over the years strength arose out of contention, and consensus out of debate. From William Miller to Desmond Ford, Knight catalogues the colorful personalities who shaped the discussion, and shows how God has led His church into broader and deeper understanding of His eternal truth. This book has the potential of being one of the most influential books written within Adventism in the past 75 years.–Willmore Eva, Editor, Ministry Magazine
