Subversive Humility

“He will not lift up his voice….” (from the pen of the prophet Isaiah)

When the Church can put aside glitz and glamor, and humbly meet the world on the terrain of shared suffering and inexhaustible love, then we will change the world for which we’ve been made.

We need more than just a strong moral code to live with that kind of humble power, but rather the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit to enable the Church to love in this humanity-dignifying and others-elevating manner.


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.
