Thomas George Ford learned early that life is not easy, especially for a young black man growing up in 1920s West Virginia. Forced to be known as "George" rather than "Thomas" to avoid being associated with his fugitive father, George struggles to find his identity and make his way in the world. Eventually, searching for work, he moves south to live with his uncle Eli. Though lighter skinned than her siblings, Grace White never thought to question the circumstances of her birth. But that changes when a tragic act of violence brings her face-to-face with both her past and her now uncertain future. When the lives of these two intersect, both Grace and George experience unexpected blessings, including survival through faith, strength through family, and wisdom through forgiveness.

Grace in Christianity and Hinduism

It is often said that the real confrontation between Christianity and the great religions of the world is only just beginning. Bishop Kulandran's book on the pivotal religious doctrine of Grace marks the first stage in the new encounter between Christianity and Hinduism. The result of considerable research and theological reflection, Bishop Kulandran's book is an objective and scholarly appraisal of Christianity and Hinduism, their similarities and differences, and of the two different worlds in which they move. Hinduism's uncertainty about the character of God and Christianity's dogmatic certainty are examined in detail. The sense of man's need of God's grace in Christianity, and Hinduism's rejection of any act of reconciliation are seen by Bishop Kulandran as central to the dialogue between the two religions.As Dr. Hendrik Kraemer says in the foreword, Bishop Kulandran's book "is animated by the desire for fair presentation and understanding and is a new and important contribution to the subject and not merely a repetition of what has often been said before". The author belonged by birth and experience to the Indian world and as a Bishop of the Church of South India knew the power as well as the limitations of the Christian mission in the world of Hinduism.This scholarly work is a valuable contribution to comparative religion and is an illuminating exploration of two of the world's most important religions.

The Homeless and the Image of God

Christianity is simple. Love God. Love your neighbor. The rest is commentary. Simple in theory becomes much more difficult when your neighbor is a man in a dress who stinks like urine and a decaying, unwashed body. And yet, that's exactly who you find on a downtown bus: the homeless, the unsavory, the just plain weird. Drawing on the wisdom of the Desert Fathers and Mothers, this book explores one woman's complex and ambivalent interactions with the homeless. Stories about a persistent failure to acknowledge and honor the humanity of the homeless are evidence of the pervasive reality of human sin. But at the same time, there are moments of genuine kindness and humanity that stand as reminders that God brings new life from the brokenness of sin. These stories of days spent on a downtown bus move from unflinching self-reflection to a new awareness of God's presence. This is where the abstract becomes local, and where theology finally gets real.

In the distance, a figure, just barely a speck on the horizon, slowly approaches his boyhood home. He hasn't been there in years and is nervous about showing his face. Years ago he wished his father would drop dead, took his share of an inheritance, and lived a shameful life. With all the wealth squandered, his desperate poverty has driven him back to his father's house. At the same time, an elderly man, distinguished and handsomely dressed, sees a far-off silhouette. Could it be? he thinks to himself, not daring to let his hopes up, refusing to believe his son would ever come home. But what is a vague, repressed hope becomes the undeniable truth that his long-lost son draws near. He runs recklessly to meet him. Grace for You, taken from Dr. John MacArthur's best-selling book A Tale of Two Sons, explains the hidden dynamics of Jesus' most well known parable, The Parable of the Prodigal Son. It gives you a brief but powerful look into the homecoming of the son, the unthinkable response of the father, and the often overlooked truth about the older brother who spurns his return. In these pages you will rediscover the depths of god's redemption.
