When a teaspoon of soil contains millions of species, and when we pave over the earth on a daily basis, what does that mean for our future? What is the risk to our food supply, the planet's wildlife, the soil on which every life-form depends? How much undeveloped, untrodden ground do we even have left? Paul Bogard set out to answer these questions in The Ground Beneath Us, and what he discovered is astounding. From New York (where more than 118,000,000 tons of human development rest on top of Manhattan Island) to Mexico City (which sinks inches each year into the Aztec ruins beneath it), Bogard shows us the weight of our cities' footprints. And as we see hallowed ground coughing up bullets at a Civil War battlefield; long-hidden remains emerging from below the sites of concentration camps; the dangerous, alluring power of fracking; the fragility of the giant redwoods, our planet's oldest living things; the surprises hidden under a Major League ballpark's grass; and the sublime beauty of our few remaining wildest places, one truth becomes blazingly clear: The ground is the easiest resource to forget, and the last we should. Bogard's The Ground Beneath Us is deeply transporting reading that introduces farmers, geologists, ecologists, cartographers, and others in a quest to understand the importance of something too many of us take for granted: dirt. From growth and life to death and loss, and from the subsurface technologies that run our cities to the dwindling number of idyllic Edens that remain, this is the fascinating story of the ground beneath our feet.

A beautifully illustrated look at the forces that help cities grow—and eventually cause their destruction—told through the stories of the great civilizations of ancient America. You may think you know all of the American cities. But did you know that long before New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Boston ever appeared on the map—thousands of years before Europeans first colonized North America—other cities were here? They grew up, fourished, and eventually disappeared in the same places that modern cities like St. Louis and Mexico City would later appear. In the pages of this book, you'll find the astonishing story of how they grew from small settlements to booming city centers—and then crumbled into ruins.

“This book is undoubtedly one of the landmark Christian writings of our time. It serves as a clear clarion call, challenging all who represent the Christian faith to align with the true gospel.” —Alan Platt, Founder, Doxa Deo Ministries and The City Changers Movement “Get ready—A Kingdom Identity is inspiring, challenging, and a game changer. So, let the conversation begin.” —Steve Dixon, Senior Pastor, Christian Life Cathedral Christ came to reveal to us our true, redeemed identity! The most tragic consequence of the fall of humankind was our loss of the conviction of our true identity in Jesus Christ. What happens when we understand our identity in Him? We are released into being fully human and fully alive. When we understand and embrace our identity in Christ, we gain solid footing for living out God’s purpose for our lives. Our faith will deepen, our hearts will be enlarged, and we will permeate society with God’s love and goodness, making a positive impact for God’s kingdom on all humanity. In A Kingdom Identity, you will learn these life-changing principles: * Christianity is entirely about Jesus Christ and His desire for His identity to abide in every believer. * We are made complete in Christ. God’s purpose is that we bear His image to the world. * God calls every believer to be a minister and priest of His kingdom. * God never intended for us to separate from the world. God calls every believer to live by the life of Christ in them as they work in all pillars of society. If you can internalize the truths in A Kingdom Identity, mountains in you and around you will move. When you are yourself, in Christ, God will be expressed to the world.

In ministry as in life, we get knocked down. Sometimes, due to our folly or despair or fatigue or external opposition, we stumble and fall. How do we get back up--again and again and again? Resiliency, the ability to bounce back, is a gift of God. Leaders are able to get up and follow the crucified and risen Lord when they are drawn, when they are enchanted by the awesome mystery of the triune God. Discipleship has never been easy. The way, staying on the narrow path that leads to abundant life, is hard. Today, no less than the first disciples, followers of Christ face an array of challenges, not the least of which is disenchantment: "We had hoped he was the one to redeem Israel" (Luke 24:21). Seen through an Enlightenment lens, disenchantment may be more acute and prevalent in our times, but it is not new. We walk our own Emmaus Road. And when we keep walking, when we follow the one who joins us on the Road, eyes are opened, hearts burn, the one standing before us is recognized, and we are sustained for the journey. This collection of theological essays on ministry is an invitation to "run and not be weary . . . to walk and not faint" (Isa 40:31) by walking in wonder with the wholly other God who is near.
