✏The Unrelenting God Book Summary : Is God still, as it has been argued, the "neglected factor" in New Testament theology? How does the Bible speak imaginatively and concretely about who God is and what God's activity on behalf of the world looks like? In The Unrelenting God sixteen accomplished scholars in the fields of biblical and theological studies explore ways in which Scripture speaks about God's character and God's activity in the world. As honoree Beverly Roberts Gaventa has done throughout her career, the contributors address important and nuanced theological themes such as God's dramatic invasion of the world in the gospel of Jesus Christ, God's ultimate triumph over the powers of sin and death, and humanity's ongoing participation with God in Christ. Scholars, students, and church leaders will appreciate this volume's careful theological interpretation of whole scriptural books and individual passages -- and its ability to model instructively how that interpretation is best done.

✏Unrelenting Love Book Summary : Unrelenting Love is the story of Jack Soule. Growing up as a boy in Colorado and Washington, he came to know the Lord at an early age. Like so many young men in the 1960s and early 1970s, Jack was sent to fight in Vietnam as a Hospital Corpsman with the US Marines. The horror and suffering of war changed Jack and separated him from his relationship and faith in God. Decorated for valor, Jack was a Corpsman many looked up to, yet inside he was scared, alone, and suffering from PTSD. Jack began to achieve all that he ever wanted, but nothing filled the emptiness deep inside. Jack believed that he had failed God and had committed acts that were beyond God's forgiveness. Jack's journey back to God's grace and mercy is an exciting story of love, loss, suffering, and heartache as he questioned whether he would ever again feel God's love-until God sent Jack the answers to all of his questions in the form of a seven-year-old girl.

✏Awake Book Summary : If we're being honest, most of us live comfortable, safe, and relatively easy lives. We enjoy a quality and ease of living that most of the world could not even imagine, let alone pursue. After all, even the poorest people in America are amongst the top five percent of the wealthiest people in the world, and the faces of those who suffer the most across the globe are distant and unfamiliar to us. As we busily navigate the path towards the American Dream, another dream has been forgotten--the hope that what is broken in this world may be restored to its intended fullness. The truth is we know we should help those less fortunate than us, but the needs of the world are so overwhelming. Where do we start? Where can we make the most impact? This compelling, story-driven book urges readers to open their eyes to the needs of a hurting world. It is a gripping, to-the-point challenge to get involved in realistic, positive change--one life at a time. Building on more than twenty years of experience in humanitarian relief efforts and community development around the world, author Noel Brewer Yeatts urges readers to realize that working to build a better world is not about guilt, handouts, or charity. It is about justice, compassion, and personal investment. She encourages readers to live a life fully awake . . . and doing a world of good.

✏The God Squad Book Summary : Book Description for The God Squad: At last! A sharp and sexy satire that skewers the absurd methods used by the ex-gay movement to make gays go straight. In this hilarious send-up of ex-gay treatment programs, a young man named Paul joins Escape, run by the Reverend Sly Slocock. While trying to convert other gays, Paul meets Jimmy, a feisty antagonist from Homo Nation, who sets out to undermine Sly's increasingly bizarre attempts to cure Paul's homosexuality. The God Squad is a racy, romantic comedy spiced with irony, intrigue, and forbidden passion. By exposing the fraudulent hypocrisy of ex-gay ministries, it also provides a refreshing antidote to the religious right's campaign against gays. About the Author: Rik Isensee practices psychotherapy in San Francisco and has worked with some clients in recovery from ex-gay programs. He is the author of three self-help books for gay men: Love Between Men, Reclaiming Your Life, and Are You Ready? The Gay Man's Guide to Thriving at Midlife.

✏Christian America and the Kingdom of God Book Summary : The idea of the United States as a Christian nation is a powerful, seductive, and potentially destructive theme in American life, culture, and politics. Many fundamentalist and evangelical leaders routinely promote this notion, and millions of Americans simply assume the Christian character of the United States. And yet, as Richard T. Hughes reveals in this powerful book, the biblical vision of the "kingdom of God" stands at odds with the values and actions of an American empire that sanctions war instead of peace, promotes dominance and oppression instead of reconciliation, and exalts wealth and power instead of justice for the poor and needy. With conviction and careful consideration, Hughes reviews the myth of Christian America from its earliest history in the founding of the republic to the present day. Extensively analyzing the Old and New Testaments, Hughes provides a solid, scripturally-based explanation of the kingdom of God--a kingdom defined by love, peace, patience, and generosity. Throughout American history, however, this concept has been appropriated by religious and political leaders and distorted into a messianic nationalism that champions the United States as God's "chosen nation" and bears little resemblance to the teachings of Jesus. Pointing to a systemic biblical and theological illiteracy running rampant in the United States, Hughes investigates the reasons why so many Americans think of the United States as a Christian nation despite the Constitution's outright prohibition against establishing any national religion by law or coercion. He traces the development of fundamentalist Christianity throughout American history, noting especially the increased power and widespread influence of fundamentalism at the dawn of the twenty-first century, embodied and enacted by the administration of President George W. Bush and America's reaction to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
