"If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone." —Romans 12:18 Conflict happens. It's a painful reality of life in a fallen world. But we don't need to be content with broken relationships—conflict resolution is possible. God's intention for us and for the world is for all to live in peace with one another, and Christian peacemakers have an unparalleled opportunity to be true ambassadors of reconciliation. Rick Love, founder and president of Peace Catalyst International, shares the principles that have guided his peacemaking efforts around the world. Masterfully blending Scripture and personal experience, he provides a biblical framework for how the God of peace seeks restoration for all who experience conflict—in the home and workplace and even across international borders. With the life of Jesus as the prime example, Love equips and empowers peacemakers of all stripes to integrate evangelical witness with commitment to reconciliation. We can walk in the footsteps of Jesus as catalysts of peace, bringing transformation and hope to a world crying out for healing and forgiveness.

Three far-reaching global trends—terrorism, pluralism, and globalization—have irrevocably altered how we live, think, and communicate in the twenty-first century. We now live in a “glocal” world: what happens globally impacts us locally, and what happens locally impacts things globally. These changes have profound implications for followers of Jesus. Rick Love offers biblical wisdom and practical insights on how to navigate the complexities of communication in this interconnected world. He also invites you to an inward journey that helps you better discern how the things of the heart relate to the work of the ministry. Glocal: Following Jesus in the 21st Century is a call to be a faithful follower of and a winsome witness for Jesus. Love will help you better embody and communicate a core message worth dying for, an integrated identity worthy living for, and a global dream worth suffering for.

Letters to Young Scholars is designed primarily for college students, advanced high school students, and church and parachurch study groups on spiritual development. As a college text, the book introduces beginning students to the general education (or liberal arts) portion of a Christian college education. It gives major emphasis to the humanities and social science disciplines, the integration of the Christian faith with those disciplines, and the application of Christian thought to daily living (applied Christianity). It seeks to challenge the students to become broader in perspective and appreciation, more compassionate toward all of God’s creatures, and more confident and committed as they develop their worldviews and personal values.

At the core of every follower of Jesus exists a priestly DNA, designed by God to be a prominent part of our self-identity. However, like a slow burning ember, our priestly nature risks remaining obscure and inconsequential unless fanned to life. This book was written to be that fan. Similar to H. C. Andersen’s Ugly Duckling, many of us have been raised in a barn (metaphorically speaking), in that our priestly identity has been obscured and has been rarely (if ever) acknowledged, reinforced, or nurtured. Many of us readily embrace the temporary role identities bestowed on us by human society (like student, employee, spouse, parent, etc.), but hesitate to embrace the priestly role identity bestowed on us by God. This should not be. Our self-identity strongly influences our attitudes, behaviors, and choices. More importantly, it needs to change because God had something important in mind when he designed his people to be priests. We need to better understand what that means. This book was written to help you understand and embrace your priestly identity, particularly in the workplace and community.

Missio Alliance Essential Reading List of 2015 We can see the injustice and inequality in our lives and in the world. We are ready to rise up. But how, exactly, do we do this? How does one reconcile? What we need is a clear sense of direction. Based on her extensive consulting experience with churches, colleges and organizations, Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil has created a roadmap to show us the way. She guides us through the common topics of discussion and past the bumpy social terrain and political boundaries that will arise. In these pages she voices her call to all believers: "It's time for the followers of Jesus to embark on the prophetic journey that leads to reconciliation and transformation around the world. Many of us may already be aware of the need for reconciliation in our own backyards. . . . We cannot ignore the plight of the people around us and as globalization continues its relentless march onward, we cannot turn a blind eye to the world at large either. We have to face the realities here at home and we must also embrace the stories of people all around the world." Each chapter lays out the next step in the journey. With reflection questions and exercises at the end of each chapter, it's ideal to read together with your church or organization. If you are ready to take the next step into unity, wholeness and justice, then this is the book for you.

A Just World: Multi-disciplinary Perspectives on Social Justice is a multi-disciplinary analysis of social justice intended to foster scholarly discussion on a just world. The contributors to this volume maintain that justice in society is a most pressing concern in the world today, and discussion about it must be, beyond theory, practical and multi-disciplinary. While dialogue concerning social justice occurs in many academic disciplines, it can be neither solely an issue of, nor fully understood by, one discipline. Its complex involvement in all human social life necessitates a multi-disciplinary approach. To this end, this volume offers an inter-disciplinary insight into what social justice means today, and how it can be achieved to create a more just world. Eight scholars representing different disciplines shed light on various aspects of social justice today from their unique perspectives – the humanities, the social sciences, the business world, and the field of education. Without losing their unique approaches to social justice, they are inclusive in this collection. These contributors directly address problems facing our societies today from a broad spectrum of capitalist neo-liberal world order, and with specific cases, including the Arab Spring and the Occupy Movement. In addressing the problems, the chapters in this volume also reveal deep-seated causes of the problems, and thereby identify the nature and characteristics of social justice in a contemporary context, providing considerable insight into long-term, sustainable solutions toward more just societies and a just world. A Just World: Multi-disciplinary Perspectives on Social Justice is unique in that it provides the most recent discussion on the timely topic of social justice. Given the matchless credentials of the contributors, the editor is confident that this volume will be received as nothing short of a landmark in multi-disciplinary discussion on social justice. It is destined to also make a considerable impact in charting new directions for future scholarly work on justice. The sweeping global problem of injustice has resulted in a considerable number of studies; however, there has been little done to examine justice from a multi-disciplinary perspective, and this volume fills that void, particularly as it presents common features of today’s problems and discusses global social justice. While this volume provides discourse by specialists in justice, it will attract a readership beyond academia and will catch the attention of anyone who is interested in justice and who seeks a just world.
