MEET JESUS... Evangelist and teacher Reverend Brenda Salter McNeil thinks evangelism that only introduces people to Jesus is incomplete. The picture is much larger than that, she claims: Christ's death and resurrection reconcile us to God and to each other across gender, race and social lines. ...AND SAM. Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman, introduced here as Brenda's friend Sam, gives us the full picture of gospel reconciliation-reconciliation with God and with one another. Along the way Brenda also offers her own story of coming to Christ. A Credible Witness moves us to be people whose evangelism happens through right relationship with God and others. ''In today's world,'' Brenda writes, ''we too are called to embody more than one type of reconciliation. The good news brings us to God, and it also brings life and healing to a broken, dying and divided world. Anything less is not the gospel.'' ''A church that is not unified is a scandal and a contradiction of the gospel.... [This] book will guide us on a journey to becoming a countercultural people who truly live out the values of the kingdom of God.'' From the foreword by Tony Campolo, Ph.D., professor emeritus, Eastern University

To be unforgiving is harmful. The inability to come to terms with one’s anger or strife often can lead to stress disorders, mental health disorders, and relationship problems. Forgiveness is a personal decision. Forgiveness and Reconciliation focuses on individual experiences with forgiveness, aiming to create a theory of what forgiveness is and connect it to a clinical theory of how to promote forgiveness. Dr. Worthington creates an evidence-based approach that is applicable for individuals and relationships, and even for society. He also describes an evidence-based method of reconciliation - restoring trust in damaged relationships. Dr. Worthington hopes that this theory will inform scientific research and improve intervention strategies. Showing that forgiveness transforms personality, Worthington describes ways a clinician can promote (but not force) forgiveness of others and self. He provides research-based theory and applications and discusses the role of emotion and specific personality traits as related to forgiveness. Forgiveness and reconciliation might not be cures, but, as Worthington shows, they are tools for transforming both the self and the world.
