Not Your White Jesus: Following a Radical, Refugee Messiah

Author: 
Sheri Faye Rosendahl
List Price: 
$16.00
Type: 
Paperback

Jesus is not white. Jesus is not American. Jesus does not want to make America great. While many of us grew up looking at gleaming portraits of Jesus with blond, flowing hair and hearing sermons reaffirming that we have the answers to save a fallen world, the real Jesus—a Middle Eastern Jew preaching radical, humble, self-emptying love—calls us to a different life.

Emily C. Heath

For Christians, resistance is written right into our baptismal vows. Following Christ means resisting oppression and evil wherever we might find it. Doing that work requires us to first rise up, face our fears, and cultivate courage that can sustain us for the journey.

The New Testament: Poems

Author: 
Jericho Brown
List Price: 
$17.00
Type: 
Paperback

In The New Testament, Jericho Brown continues his tender examination of race, masculinity, and sexuality. These poems bear witness to survival in the face of brutality, while also elegizing two brothers haunted by shame, two lovers hounded by death, and an America wounded by war and numbered by religion. Brown summons myth, fable, and fairytale not to merely revise the Bible -- more so to write the kind of lyric poetry we find at the source of redemption -- for the profane and for the sacred.

The Holy No: Worship as a Subversive Act

Author: 
Adam Hearlson
List Price: 
$24.00
Type: 
Paperback

In this book Adam Hearlson argues that Christians can say a holy “no” to oppression and injustice through the church’s worship practices. “To speak the holy no,” Hearlson says, “is to refuse to be complicit in the oppression and violence of the ruling power. It is the courageous critique of the present and its claims of immutability.”
