Do you feel stuck in your faith?
Are you searching for purpose?
Do you desire a more authentic life?
If your faith experience has been in the Western church, you have probably missed an essential part of spiritual growth without even knowing it. For decades, the church has been focused on personal piety instead of the needs of the world around it.
But Christians have not been entrusted with the story of the Gospel to simply start building campaigns and run programs, rather we are to bring the world the message of hope and love. And to meet the needs of those we come in contact with. In Justice Calling, Palmer Chinchen offers a call to a fuller expression of following Christ.
He says our faith must be a faith of doing, not just hearing. Our gaze must shift from ourselves and our small enclave like-minded individuals to the world filled with opportunities to bring justice and mercy. We must go. To the poor, the enslaved, the lost, and the lonely. There we will find fulfillment as we live out our calling.
Are you ready to join the movement toward living with a purpose, loving authentically, and engaging in the cause of justice around the globe? In Justice Calling, you will find that not only will you bring change to the lives of those you seek to serve but in so serving you will be indelibly changed as well.
Live, Love, Show Compassion, Be Changed—justice is calling…
Growing up in Liberia, Palmer Chinchen often heard people say, "Carry me halfway." Dangerous predators lurked in the dark, making it unsafe for anyone to walk alone in the jungle. So friends would gather to walk each other home. But theyd never actually stop halfway; they would always walk you all the way home.
From years of experience, Chinchen has learned that this concept can also be applied to ones spirituality. The church does well carrying people halfway, but unfortunately, a great majority of churchgoers rarely mature past the halfway markleaving them to unknowingly lead spiritually underdeveloped lives, never nearing their full potential. The theology, Bible memorization, weeknight services, choir groups, and sermons are somehow not enough, and something often seems strangely missing, inadequate. We have been taught that we develop spiritually through knowing and introspection. But Chinchen offers another way, a way many have missed.
In Carry Me Halfway Palmer Chinchen presents inspiring and practical ways to find the purpose, authenticity, and justice lacking in our lives. He invites us to walk together, all the way, toward selfless living and becoming far less concerned with self-preservation and personal piety. When we live like that...we grow. And we will be transformed.
"Given the long struggle we have had in the U.S., to live to see justice return to the evangelical church, to have young pastors such as Palmer Chinchen calling for justice, is good news for the church in our day. I encourage you to read Justice Calling."
Praise for Barefoot Tribe:
"Having grown up in Liberia, the child of Christian missionaries, Chinchen witnessed firsthand the selflessness of Africans who gave their shoes to others, making themselves vulnerable to life-threatening diseases contracted by walking barefoot in the jungle. Based on this example, the author urges everyone to take a little less for themselves, give more to others, and work together to eliminate poverty, eradicate malaria, foster sustainability, and end injustice. Although much progress has been made, Chinchen insists more needs to be done . . . Chinchen’s manifesto offers hope and inspiration for people of all faiths."
“Barefoot Tribe is a call to rediscover Jesus and His way in a manner that will change the world—as it always has. Palmer’s writing is as clear as it is compelling, and convicting in the best sense of that word. After reading his book, I have decided to take off my shoes and join the tribe.”
“Nothing great for God happens without passion, and you can feel Palmer Chinchen’s passion on every page of this rallying cry for the church. Far from the usual diatribe on the church's impairments and plights, Barefoot Tribe is a call to arms toward a new kind of tribe that hears the cries of the world in everyday life and responds with passion to its hurts. The author’s vision is not a church in pain but one that feels the pain of the world and salves its wounds. Chinchen changes each word of ‘Here I Stand’ to ‘There We Go.’ Painstaking and passionate, Barefoot Tribe shows us how to ‘Take a Hike.’”
"Palmer Chinchen is a prophet to our generation, and Barefoot Tribe is his call to all who have ears to hear. Through fluid prose and captivating stories, Chinchen illuminates the true work of transformation and freedom for which we were all born. Barefoot Tribe is as much a movement as a manifesto, drawing us back to the heart of the Christ whose name we bear. A must read for all who would follow the Way of the Master. Bravo! May we all heed its beautiful and haunting call."
"Palmer Chinchen carries us far more than halfway towards the heart of God, in the pursuit of a world that loves mercy, does justice, and walks humbly."
“Justice Calling is a challenge to leaders, the Church, and our generation. To both “be” and “do” in a day when it’s more important than ever that our actions, as followers of Jesus, line up with our thoughts and words. This book is a practical and helpful resource for understanding the importance of Justice.”
“Not only am I proud to call Palmer my friend, but his book Justice Calling is also a must-read for anyone who cares about social justice and growing their faith.”
“Justice Calling is a fresh reminder that we are called as followers of Jesus to make earth look more a little more like heaven. The words 'social justice' might sound intimidating to some, but that is truly what we get when we commit to serve others, and allow Jesus to shine through us."
"Justice Calling is full of incredible stories of what God can do through us if we are willing to trust Him and go! We are called to take care of the widows and orphans, and those who cannot take care of themselves. I found this book not only encouraging, but a challenge to authentically and passionately live out my faith through service."
“Palmer Chinchen is a dear friend in Christ. I had the honor to be a part of Barefoot Tribe, and truly feel Palmer has knocked it out of the park with Justice Calling! Live, Love, Show Compassion, Be Changed—Justice Calling is a book for the ages!"
"This is a fearless book, and Palmer Chinchen is an authentic and courageous voice calling Christians not just to the journey inward but to the journey outward as well."
“I've known Palmer for many years and have experienced firsthand that his passion for justice is genuine and infectious. In Justice Calling, Palmer reminds us that there is no separation between spirituality and justice. It's an inspiring and motivating call for the church to live compassionately, love generously, and put its faith into action!”
