Phyllis Tickle And Peter Rollins Discuss Emergence Christianity

A very interesting interview between author Phyllis Tickle (The Great Emergence) and Peter Rollins (How Not To Speak Of God) on the nature of Emergence Christianity.

No matter your perspectives on their views, the conversation itself is a lovely thing. I am committed to posting ideas that further the conversation today, and enable the Church to once again become a critically thinking, passionately missional agent in a beautiful yet broken world.

Rollins is a young Irish philosopher, and his thoughts on God as Subject, and us as Object, is particularly fascinating – God is not an object to study, but when God enters the world, every object finds its context.


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.
