Grassroots Asian Theology:
Thinking the Faith from the Ground Up

By Simon Chan
IVP Academic (May 2014)

In Grassroots Asian Theology, Simon Chan examines Asian Christianity at its daily, sustaining level. There he uncovers a vibrant theology that is authentically Asian and truly engaging.

Visions of Vocation:
Common grace for the common good

By Steve Garber
IVP (February 2014)
Normal Price: $20.80 / Offer Price: $15.60

Vocation is when we come to know the world in all its joy and pain and still love it. Vocation is following our calling to seek the welfare of the world we live in. And in helping the world to flourish, strangely, mysteriously, we find that we flourish too. Garber offers a book for everyone everywhere—for students, for parents, for those in the arts, in the academy, in public service, in the trades and in commerce—for all who want to discover the virtue of vocation.

Who’s Afraid of Relativism
By James K.A. Smith
Baker Academic (February 2014)
Normal Price: $26.00 / Offer Price: $19.50

Many Christians view relativism as the antithesis of absolute truth and take it to be the antithesis of the gospel. Leading Christian philosopher James K. A. Smith argues that this reaction is a symptom of a deeper theological problem: an inability to honor the contingency and dependence of our creaturehood. Appreciating our created finitude as the condition under which we know (and were made to know) should compel us to appreciate the contingency of our knowledge without sliding into arbitrariness. Saying "It depends" is not the equivalent of saying "It's not true" or "I don't know." It is simply to recognize the conditions of our knowledge as finite, created, social beings. Pragmatism, says Smith, helps us recover a fundamental Christian appreciation of the contingency of creaturehood.

Practicing Christian Doctrine:
An Introduction to Thinking and Living Theologically

By: Beth Felker Jones
Baker Academic (April 2014)
Normal Price: $29.85 / Offer Price: $22.40

This introductory theology text explains key concepts in Christian doctrine and shows that doctrine is integrally linked to the practical realities of Christian life. In order to grow into more faithful practitioners of Christianity, we need to engage in the practice of learning doctrine and understanding how it shapes faithful lives. Beth Felker Jones helps students articulate basic Christian doctrines, think theologically so they can act Christianly in a diverse world, and connect Christian thought to their everyday life of faith.
