Love Forward
Author: Kopitzke, Becky
Description:
Most of us want to make a difference, to live and love generously. But we just don't for a million reasons. Using relatable stories, discussion questions, and careful application of God's Word, here are the inspiration and practical tips and ideas you need to see the opportunities around you, reach out, live generously and bravely, and propel love forward. A Fresh, Down-to-Earth Look on Living and Loving Well If asked, most of us want to make a difference, to live and love generously. But we get caught in the crazy rush of household routines, work demands, cranky attitudes, difficult people, exhaustion, worry, and pride, and once again we fail to love the people around us at all--let alone well. We too easily default to focusing more on self than on others, on receiving more than giving, in ways we don't even recognize. We dream of reaching out. We just . . . forget. Or don't have the energy. Using relatable stories, discussion questions, and careful application of God's Word, author and speaker Becky Kopitzke gives you the inspiration and practical tips and ideas you need to see the opportunities around you, to reach out, to live generously, and to love others bravely and selflessly. To bless and be blessed is to actualize the joy of Christ--and to propel love forward.

Selfish Faith
Author: Warren, Rick (Foreword by) Ryan Thomas Holladay
Description:
With careful reasoning and biblical support, pastor Ryan Holladay helps readers discover that self-interest--the desire to seek their own good and to avoid their own harm--is a legitimate and spiritually acceptable motive that can glorify God and be harnessed for good. Selfish. It's a word that has zero positive connotations, especially among people of faith. Christians are supposed to be other-focused, even to the point of neglecting themselves in the process . . . right? Pastor and provocateur Ryan Holladay wants to challenge that clich? and restore healthy self-interest to a respectable place in our vocabulary. He points out that throughout the Bible there are always three reasons for taking the right action, each intertwined and equally valid: love for others, love for God, and love for oneself. With careful reasoning and equally careful Bible study, Holladay helps us discover that the potent, naturally occurring drive of self-interest--the desire to seek our own good and avoid our own harm--is a perfectly legitimate and spiritually acceptable motive after all. Once we start seeing self-interest as a God-given resource that can be harnessed for good, we find a whole new set of reasons for pushing ourselves further in the life of faith.

Begin Again
Author: Niequist, Shauna (Foreword by) Leeana Tankersley
Description:
With compassion and vulnerability, Leeana Tankerlsey invites readers to begin again every day, leaving behind the failures and frustrations of yesterday to experience a truer and freer today. What happens when life begins to trip us up and failure starts creeping in? Many of us just keep on doing the same thing, hoping for different results. Some of us look for escape, to find a way out of the mess we feel that we've created. But neither enduring nor escaping is ultimately what we need. The answer is to allow ourselves to begin again, every day, in every part of our lives. Through engaging, lyrical prose, Leeana Tankersley shows women how to forgive themselves, develop new and healthier patterns of living, and do away with resentment and regret. Her life-giving words will free women who are feeling stuck and allow them to clear out the debris to make room for what God wants to do in their lives. To begin again is to open the window, even a crack, to let the breeze of grace come in. It is a call to stop running from our fears. To take one small step toward becoming the brave women we were made to be.

Selfies
Author: Detweiler, Craig
Description:
A nationally known writer and speaker on media issues examines the selfie phenomenon, helping us explore how we can love God and serve our neighbors through social media. Selfies are ubiquitous. They can be silly or serious, casual or curated. Within moments, smart phone users can capture their image and post it across multiple social media platforms to a global audience. But do we truly understand the power of image in our image-saturated age? How can we seek God and care for each other in digital spaces? Craig Detweiler, a nationally known writer and speaker and an avid social media user, examines the selfie phenomenon, placing selfies within the long history of self-portraits in art, literature, and photography. He shows how self-portraits change our perspective of ourselves and each other in family dynamics, education, and discipleship. Challenging us to push past unhealthy obsessions with beauty, wealth, and fame, Detweiler helps us to develop a thoughtful, biblical perspective on selfies and social media and to put ourselves in proper relation to God and each other. He also explains the implications of social media for an emerging generation, making this book a useful conversation starter in homes and churches. Each chapter ends with discussion questions and a photo assignment for creating a selfie in response to the chapter.

For the Life of the World
Author: Volf, Matthew Croasmun Miroslav
Description:
Shows that a recovery of theology is vital to help us evaluate contested questions of value, articulate compelling visions of the good life, and answer the fundamental question of what makes a life worth living. The question of what makes a life worth living is more vital now than ever. In today's pluralistic, post-secular world, universal values are dismissed as mere matters of private opinion, and the question of what constitutes a flourishing life--for ourselves, our neighbors, and the planet as a whole--is neglected in our universities, our churches, and our culture at large. Although we increasingly have the technology to do almost anything, we have little sense of what is truly worth accomplishing. In this provocative new contribution to public theology, world-renowned theologian Miroslav Volf (named America's New Public Intellectual by Scot McKnight on his Jesus Creed blog) and Matthew Croasmun explain that the intellectual tools needed to rescue us from our present malaise and meet our new cultural challenge are the tools of theology. A renewal of theology is vital to help us articulate compelling visions of the good life, find our way through the maze of contested questions of value, and answer the fundamental question of what makes a life worth living.
