Product Description

A revolution is sweeping through our churches to recalibrate our thinking around the central proposition that God is love. Generous, prodigal love that seeks the best for every human being on the planet. How do we engage in evangelistic mission in light of this emphasis?

This book is a guide to God's mission in the world, with an emphasis on equipping individual Christians to share their faith and bless those they love and live with.

The Seven Stories That Shape Your Life follows the four categories of beautiful, broken, forgiven, and invited, applying each to the central challenge of communicating the good news.

Publisher's Description

In 1517 a young monk, Martin Luther, nailed his ninety-five theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenburg. Luther sparked a revolt, a radical restatement of what Christianity was all about, and a renewal of the whole church.

He was a man of vision and courage. He was also, however, profoundly anti-Semitic, and his sermons against the Jews were reprinted by Adolf Hitler in his campaign for the Final Solution. This darker side of Luther's legacy still casts a shadow across the world.

With the 500th anniversary of the posting of the theses coming in 2017, it is time to examine what Luther said and the impact of his words, and to see what Catholics, Protestants, and Jews alike can do to heal the terrible divisions he fostered. After reviewing Luther's words and deeds, Richard Harvey considers their ongoing impact through the years before considering what is needed to heal the wounds of the past. What does reconciliation really look like?
