What if racial reconciliation doesn't look like what you expected? The high-profile killings of young black men and women by white police officers, and the protests and violence that ensued, have convinced many white Christians to reexamine their intuitions when it comes to race and justice. In this provocative book, theologian and blogger Drew G. I. Hart places police brutality, mass incarceration, antiblack stereotypes, poverty, and everyday acts of racism within the larger framework of white supremacy. Leading readers toward Jesus, Hart offers concrete practices for churches that seek solidarity with the oppressed and are committed to racial justice. What if all Christians listened to the stories of those on the racialized margins? How might the church be changed by the trouble we've seen?

If Christians follow the Prince of Peace, why do they often behave so violently? What can be done to transform the church so that it looks more like Jesus? Eric Seibert explores these questions in this important and timely study. He builds a biblical and practical case for living nonviolently in all areas of life and urges Christians to reexamine their most fundamental attitudes toward violence, warfare, and killing. Through true stories and careful analysis, Seibert demonstrates that it is possible to resolve conflict, correct injustice, and stop oppression without resorting to violence. Many nonviolent alternatives are discussed throughout the book, alternatives that can be used in a wide range of situations, from dealing with an unwanted intruder at home to removing a dictator from power. In a world filled with so much violence, hate, and fear, alternatives like these are desperately needed. This book offers hope that a better way is possible, one that has the potential to transform the church and change the world. So read on and join in!

Playing off a five-year-old boy's question concerning whether parents would put their son to death on a cross, this book plunges headlong into the ongoing debate about the character of God. Following the historic faith confession that God is revealed in Jesus, the book's first chapter sketches the life and teaching of Jesus. That life, which reveals Jesus' rejection of violence, calls for an understanding of God in nonviolent terms. Weaver thus invites us to embrace a nonviolent atonement image, which stands as a direct challenge to the inherited atonement images. Deriving theology from the narrative of Jesus also leads Weaver into discussions about the very nature of theology, the character of the Bible, the divine violence in the Old Testament (as well as the purported divine violence in the book of Revelation), and a rethinking of historic Christology. Each of these discussions has implications for life today--implications for economics, forgiveness, violence, gender discrimination, racism, and more. The book is thus an introduction to foundational issues of theology and ethics, suitable for church discussion groups and introductory college classrooms.

Το Μαγικό βουνό είναι ένα αριστούργημα της ευρωπαϊκής λογοτεχνίας από έναν νομπελίστα συγγραφέα που διερευνά τη γοητεία και τον εκφυλισμό των ιδεών σε μια εσωστρεφή κοινότητα τις παραμονές του Μεγάλου Πολέμου. Η υπόθεση είναι φαινομενικά απλή. Ο νεαρός μηχανικός από το Αμβούργο Χανς Κάστορπ επισκέπτεται το σανατόριο Μπέργκχοφ της Ελβετίας για να δει τον ξάδερφό του. Μια μικρή αδιαθεσία και ένας παρατεταμένος πυρετός οδηγούν το γιατρό του σανατορίου, αυλικό σύμβουλο Μπέρενς, να του προτείνει να παρατείνει την παραμονή του. Τελικά ο Χανς Κάστορπ αποφασίζει να μείνει στο σανατόριο για τρεις βδομάδες. Μόνο που οι τρεις βδομάδες, χωρίς να το καταλάβει, μετατρέπονται σε επτά χρόνια, καθώς ο Χανς ερωτεύεται και μεθά από τις ιδέες που ακούει να συζητιούνται εκεί.
