Poverty, global warming, environmental degradation and terrorism are some of the most pressing global issues of our time. While Washington offers us only the politics of blame and fear, Jim Wallis offers hope by helping to change the national conversation on faith and politics. By helping a nation hungry for hope and positive political solutions, Wallis shows us that a revival is happening, as people of faith and moral conviction seek common ground for change.

By reminding us that religious faith was a driving force behind our nation's greatest social reforms (the abolitionist and civil rights movement), Wallis shows how these "great awakenings" took place during crucial moments in our nation's history, ultimately propelling us toward the common good. The time is ripe for another movement that will transform this country. The Great Awakening, will help you to rediscover the moral center of our faith while providing the needed inspiration to help you find solutions to our nation's greatest political challenges.
     

 

 
The Scandal of Evangelical PoliticsThe Scandal of Evangelical Politics
Ronald J. Sider
Retail Price: $20.00
CBD Price: $13.20
( In Stock )
Add To Cart
Though evangelicals have a surprising amount of political clout, the way they have used it has been something of an embarrassment. Combining biblical principles with societal analysis, Sider helps develop a positive approach for doing politics in a wise, biblically grounded way, honoring to Christ and acknowledging his lordship over all areas of life. Sider takes us to task for warped perspectives and hypocritical living, then outlines what he feels are the key biblical principles and priorities that believing Christians can agree on. Sider's work is timely, sound and thorough.

In this earnest discussion, revolutionary theologian John Cobb Jr. implores Christian churches to take a more active role in the solution of contemporary issues such as food security and the ever-expanding world population, the welfare system, civil and human rights, the war on drugs, abortion, immigration, and the destruction of ecosystems. Remaining passive under the guise of "separation of church and state" and being subsumed in the media by the vocal conservative church, mainline Christians have allowed to proliferate a warped view of where the majority of Christians stand. As Cobb explains, religion is an important factor in the solution of our current issues, and he points to the Members of the Mobilization for the Human Family as an exemplary Christian organization devoted to dealing with contemporary problems.

"Christians have a marvelous opportunity to be good news people. We can be a force for peace, justice, and reconciliation in every land. Differences do not have to become divisions. Instead, they can be woven into a tapestry of religious variety that shows the world that God is good and God is great. My hope is that reading this book will contribute to your wanting to join this journey."
-from the Preface

In recent years, argues the author, religious and political dialogue in the United States has been hijacked by the so-called religious right, a coalition of conservative Christian leaders who purport to speak for all Christians but whose politicized brand of Christianity excludes many and falls short of the true gospel message. Jan Linn argues for a bigger Christianity, one big enough to embrace all of God's people with a message of inclusion and acceptance.

In his passionate argument, Linn recovers the prophetic voice of a faith that cannot be reduced to a single nation, race, or class and echoes a call for justice, integrity, and deep faithfulness in the political landscape of contemporary America.

Jan G. Linn is co-pastor of Spirit of Joy Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has served as chaplain at Lynchburg College in Virginia and director of field education at Lexington Theological Seminary in Kentucky. He is author of more than ten books for clergy and laity.
     


 

 
Thy Kingdom Come: How the Religious Right Distorts the Faith and Threatens AmericaThy Kingdom Come: How the Religious Right Distorts the Faith and Threatens America
Randall Balmer

For much of American history, evangelicalism was aligned with progressive political causes - the abolition of slavery, universal suffrage, and public education. But contemporary conservative activists have defaulted on this majestic legacy, embracing instead an agenda virtually indistinguishable from the Republican Party platform. How has evangelical Christianity become so entrenched in partisan politics? Randall Balmer, an evangelical Christian and an historian of American religion, deftly combines ethnographic research, theological reflections, and historical context to examine the nature of the Religious Right today - and offers a rallying cry for liberal Christians to reclaim the noble traditions of their faith.

Survey: 16 Percent
of Science Teachers
are Creationists


According to a recent national survey, 16 percent of U.S. science teachers are creationists, the Christian Post reports. The study, conducted by faculty at Pennsylvania State University, found that creationism continues to be taught in many classrooms despite judicial blocks. A majority of the almost 1,000 teachers surveyed said that they spent at least three to 10 hours of class time covering evolution, while a quarter of those surveyed said they also taught creationism and intelligent design - about half of whom said they believed these to be "valid, scientific alternative to Darwinian explanations for the origin of species." Four states have passed "Academic Freedom" bills protecting teachers' and students'rights to challenge Darwinism without fear of backlash.
