However, in Messy Spirituality Mike Yaconelli reminds us that admitting such failure and receiving God's mercy is the first step of true Christian spirituality.

Excerpt


During college, a professor remarked, "Being a Christian is about choosing Jesus and deciding to do something incredibly daring with your life." Taking up that challenge, Shane's faith led him to dress the wounds of lepers with Mother Teresa, visit families in Iraq amidst bombings, and dump $10,000 on Wall Street to redistribute wealth. In The Irresistible Revolution, you'll be challenged by a radical Christianity passionate for peace, social justice, and alleviating the suffering found in the local neighborhood and distant reaches of the world. Live out your faith with little acts of radical love as you join the movement of God's Spirit into a broken world.

Organic Community: Creating a Place Where People Naturally ConnectOrganic Community: Creating a Place Where People Naturally Connect

Excerpt


Community is a fundamental life search and one of the key aspects people look for in a congregation. But community can't be forced, controlled, or easily created. The problem, says Joseph R. Myers, is that churches are too focused on developing programs - such as small groups - but should instead be concentrating on environments where community will spontaneously emerge. Organic Community challenges key leaders to become environmentalists - people who create or shape environments. Outlining nine organizational tools for creating a healthy environment, Myers shows readers how to diagnose their current situation and implement patterns that will develop healthy community.

In Ruby Slippers Jonalyn Fincher makes the point that women can be both fully human and fully feminine. She asks the question "What exactly did Jesus redeem when he redeemed women?"
