Emergent: Our Response To Critics

I thought this was well-written, and reflects many of my own sentiments in the on-going emergent conversation. I’d rather have my loyalties questioned than find myself linked with loyalties I don’t have. I don’t think brand names such as “Evangelical” are particularly helpful when it comes to Christ-followership. Alliances and immediate families are rich with accountability and synergy – but they don’t ultimately determine who one was, is, or is becoming.

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
