Pundits regularly declare that Christianity is dying—its golden age of influence is long gone in Western Europe, and similar trends are happening in North America. But while it slowly dies in the West, Christianity has been coming to life in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

Now immigrants, refugees, and missionaries from the Global South bring their vibrant faith to our shores. They are bringing the gospel back to us in new and surprising ways.

Christianity is rising, you just have to look around.

This Homebrewed Christianity Guide explores how Christian theology can address our rapidly changing paradigms of human existence. Donna Bowman argues that theology can contribute to our knowledge of the human self, gained through the sciences, that a theological perspective on humanity is useful in contemporary pluralistic and global settings, and that there’s theological significance to work and play. She also tackles issues of gender, sexuality, creativity, and human expression – with jokes!

By entering the culture wars, churchgoers in the United States have ushered the Left and the Right to even greater extremes.

Allen Hilton believes that religion isn’t inherently divisive, and he suggests a new role for Christianity. Jesus prayed that his disciples might all be one, and this book imagines a proper answer to that prayer in the context of American polarization.

Hilton promotes a Christianity that brings people together with their differences, creating a house united that will help our nation come back together.

Science may be the biggest threat to teenage faith today, but Andrew Root demonstrates that, in fact, the two are not incompatible.

Root, a renowned expert on adolescent spirituality, shows how science overstates its claims on truth, while faith often understates its own claims. Both faith and science frame the experience and reality of teenagers, and both have something valuable to offer as adolescents develop.

Drawing on a fictional account of a youth pastor and the various students he encounters, Root paints a compelling picture of how faith can flourish, even in our scientific age.

The virgin birth is a much-loved story in the Christian tradition, but many theologians dispute the tradition of the virginal conception on both historical and scientific grounds. 

A Protestant theologian, husband, and father, Kyle Roberts was growing unsure of his belief in Mary’s virginity. So he set out to investigate the virgin birth from every angle.

A Complicated Pregnancy records his fascinating journey through the evidence and the myth, through history, biblical interpretation, and church politics. His conclusion surprised him, and it will surprise you, too.

When Richard Beck first led a Bible study at a maximum security prison, he went to meet God. His own faith was flagging, but Beck still believed the promise of Matthew 25, that when we visit the prisoner, we visit Jesus.

With his signature combination of biblical reflection, theological reasoning, and psychological insight, Beck shows how God always meets us in the marginalized and the refugee. God comes to us in the poor, the crippled, the smelly.
