Politics isn’t a four-letter word.
Everyone’s been at that dinner party. The conversation takes a political turn. The arguments start, the atmosphere grows tense, and all that remains is a hopeless stalemate and an awkward silence. Makes you wonder . . . is thoughtful and productive dialogue about politics even possible?
In Honoring God in the Red or Blue, Dr. Amy Black addresses the debaters as well as those intimidated or annoyed by the debaters; political junkies and the contented uninvolved. She explains the purposes and limitations of our system and helps readers create realistic expectations for government. While God’s truth is perfect, human application of it is not, a reality that shouldn’t deter us from engaging in debate and staying informed. Rather, it should challenge us to raise our standards for how we speak about the issues-and those in office.
It’s time to approach political divides with an extra measure of grace. Success begins with seeking God’s honor first and foremost, regardless of where we fall on the political spectrum. Don’t limit yourself to chatting about the weather.

“Robert, I don’t have any savings. My house is worth less than I owe on it. I have no rich relatives. Mary’s car was totaled, and mine’s a piece of junk. I have little hope my wife will live, and if the child survives, he will be severely handicapped and need medical attention and care all his life.” Joe paused trying to imagine what the future might hold for him and his son. “Possibly down the road when I’m more financially secure, I can adopt your standards, if I feel convicted to, but for the time I’m stuck with the state plan. Besides, I’ve paid my taxes all my life. Don’t they owe it to me? I don’t see how I can do it otherwise.”
Joe has to face reality…everything he has worked for, everything he loves in life is crashing around him and he is being pressured on all sides to cave in to the inevitable. Will he give up his rights and bow to the darkness surrounding him or will his faith in God’s providence, and his convictions cause him to do the absolute right?

Sometimes trials attack us so extensively, that the pain of our reality contradicts even our core beliefs. Our faith is frayed.
In Honest Wrestling, we’re given the rare opportunity to observe the depths of a family’s frayed faith, when they are forced to face the unthinkable. In a raw and real way, K. Howard Joslin takes an intentional risk, allowing us to venture into the intimate struggles of his faith in order to come along side and encourage us with ours.
As a seminary graduate, we would expect K. Howard Joslin to have correct answers to tough questions that arise when one’s faith is tested. Yet, in what seemed like a matter of moments, his family was faced with job loss, three miscarriages, an unexpected heart attack, and the brutal diagnosis of a rare cancer, one that was both aggressive and incurable. Joslin finds himself in the match of his life as he wrestles with God about the authenticity of His goodness and the reliability of His promises, while grasping for hope when there is none. Writing with gut-wrenching authenticity and transparency during the heat of his battle, Joslin rejects easy answers and raises questions that believers often secretly ask, but often find too risky to reveal.
Honest Wrestling offers hope-filled perspective for those currently undergoing trials and insights for encouraging those who are suffering.

In Bearing Witness: Sharing the Gospel in a Post-Christian Age, Dr. Doug Erlandson provides a practical guide to bringing the Good News to an increasingly secular and post-Christian culture. Noting that those with whom we have contact are less likely than ever to have any understanding of Christianity or share any of its presuppositions, Erlandson shows how despite this we can find common ground and thereby begin challenging the belief systems of those to whom we present the Gospel.
Erlandson’s purpose in writing Bearing Witness is best summed up in these words from the Prologue: “I firmly believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a truly transformative message. It transformed me a third of a century ago and continues to transform me daily. It has transformed countless others on every continent on the face of the earth. And it alone can transform those who are part of today’s post-Christian culture, who, like the rest of us, have been created with restless hearts that will find true peace and fulfillment only when they experience the fulness of the work of the Triune God in their lives. My hope is that what I have written in this book will help in bringing this transformative message to others in a way that is both credible and loving.”
