    Peter Rollins believes the Christian faith has meaning only if it affects the way that followers of Jesus live their lives. For many who are not Christians, a "faith" otherwise would appears all-too commonplace and no different than anything else. In the The Orthodox Heretic Rollins has crafted a series of parables that shatter these commonplace realities and demonstrate how genuine faith is radical-and has never been concerned with escaping the world we inhabit, but rather, engaging it more fully. A genuine Christian faith has never capitulated to injustice but to the contrary has fought against it at every turn. In opposition to those who would claim that Christianity embraces God at the expense of a suffering world, Rollins shows how the true believer only embraces God inasmuch as he fully embraces our needy world.

    This fourth addition to the Church and Postmodern Culture series, written by internationally acclaimed theologian Graham Ward, examines the political side of postmodernism to better describe the characteristics of a faithful, political discipleship. In two sections, Ward provides an accessible guide to contemporary postmodernism with its wide-ranging implications. He then elaborates on a discipleship informed by a faith which seeks understanding - something he describes as "the substance of the church's political life." The Politics of Discipleship is an engaging account of the inherently political nature of postmodernity infused Ward's elaboration on what it means to live our Christian faith within this setting.

    Following the intruiging ideas raised in Brian McLaren's bestselling A New Kind of Christian, Tony Jones has written an engaging exploration of what this new kind of Christianity looks like. Writing "dispatches" on the thought and practice of those within the Emerging Church, he offers an in-depth look at this new "third way" of faith - its origins, theology, and its views on truth, Scripture and interpretation, along with the movement's hopeful and life-giving sense of community. With the depth of theological expertise and broad perspective he has gained as a pastor, writer, and as a leader of this movement, Jones invites readers into the Emergent conversation and offers a new way forward for Christians in a postmodern world. With journalistic narrative as well as authoritative reflection, he provides fascinating examples and first hand stories that mark this new and revitalized incarnation of Christianity.
