'Look around and you'll see the fields are ripe for harvest.'

Jesus said this in Samaria, a community on the margins of society. In Embracing the New Samaria, Alejandro Mandes points us to the mission field in our midst, left untended when the church fails to reach out to ethnic-minority and marginalized communities. When we commit ourselves to the Great Commission (to make disciples) and the Great Commandment (to love our neighbor), we move toward a Great Community in which God is glorified and all people flourish. Read this book and you'll see a future you'll want to be a part of.

Racism is pervasive in today's world, and many are complicit in the failure to confront its evils. Jemar Tisby, author of the award-winning The Color of Compromise, believes we need to move beyond mere discussions about racism and begin equipping people with the practical tools to fight against it.

How to Fight Racism is a handbook for pursuing racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple framework--the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice--that helps readers consistently interrogate their own actions and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This book is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.

Tisby roots the ultimate solution to racism in the Christian faith as we embrace the implications of what Jesus taught his followers. Beginning in the church, he provides an opportunity to be part of the solution and suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope that will transform our nation and the world. Tisby encourages us to reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for human dignity across racial and ethnic lines. Readers of the book will come away with a clear model for how to think about race in productive ways and a compelling call to dismantle a social hierarchy long stratified by skin color.

Beth Allison Barr, a Baylor University historian, resituates the conversation surrounding the topic of biblical womanhood within the realm of ecclesial history, proposing it is less scripturally ordained and more the product of clearly definable contextual moments. Feminine disposition, permitted church roles, career options, and relationship dynamics are systematically examined, interwoven with Barr’s experiences as a Baptist pastor's wife.

Talking About Ethics provides the reader with all of the tools necessary to develop a coherent approach to ethical decision-making. Using the tools of ethical theory, the authors show how these theories play out in relation to a wide variety of ethical questions using an accessible dialogue format. The chapters follow three college students as they discuss today's most important ethical issues with their families and friends, including immigration, capital punishment, legalization of narcotics, abortion, premarital sex, reproductive technologies, gender identity, the environment, and many more.

The engaging dialogue format illustrates how these topics often take shape in the real world, and model critical thinking and Christian ethical decision making. Study aids in each chapter include overviews, sidebars, reflection questions, glossaries, and recommended reading. Ideal as a textbook for undergraduate ethics courses, it is also accessible enough for high school classes and personal study.
