Embrace

Embrace

By:

The walls between us seem impenetrable. We live in an age of strife and division. Factors such as race, class, values and lifestyles keep us from connecting with others in meaningful ways. It’s easy to avoid or ignore those who make us uncomfortable and those we simply do not like, but God’s call to the church is to do just the opposite. Leroy Barber has spent decades pursuing reconciliation and justice amongst groups of vastly diverse people. He knows the challenge of embracing those who are difficult to embrace, yet he advocates that the way to radical shalom on earth is through pursuing these relationships. We have the opportunity as the people of God to bring true peace and unity to a world that desperately needs it. Embrace the challenge to show a divided world the bridge-building power of God’s love.

Red, Brown, Yellow, Black, White—Who’s More Precious In God’s Sight?

Red, Brown, Yellow, Black, White—Who’s More Precious In God’s Sight?

By:

RED, BROWN, YELLOW, BLACK AND WHITE highlights the historic patterns that have created racial discrepancies within missions. It joins the essential canon created by touchstone books like Divided by Faith by Michael Emerson and Christian Smith and the ever-popular Race Matters by Cornel West.

With a no-blame attitude, powerful personal narratives from a dozen other black, Hispanic, Asian, Native American and white Christians, interactive histories of missions, and the writings of MLK and Howard Thurman (the entire “Letter From Birmingham Jail” and Howard Thurman’s motivational speech “Sound of the Genuine”), Barber addresses this tough issue in a way that will inspire and motivate readers of all races toward change.

Everyday Missions

Everyday Missions

By:

It’s not every day that you get a visit from God. Burning bushes, ladders to heaven, chariots of fire and all that–we look for those stories in the Bible, and we look for them in our lives. When it comes to something as important as what we do with our lives, we think, maybe God owes us a big event. But, as Leroy Barber has learned through his work in inner cities and with young people, that’s not usually how it works. More often God calls out to us from everyday misfortunes and all-too-common injustices, and he invites our response–not just a response in the moment, but a recognition that we have a role to play in seeing God’s kingdom come, God’s will done, on earth as it is in heaven. Through the surprisingly normal stories of the heroes of faith in the Bible, and through Barber’s experiences with Mission Year and other ministries, in this book you’ll learn what it means to change the world from your own little space in it.
