A successful American surgeon gives away everything he owns and moves to Russia to keep a promise he made to God when he was fourteen. . . and finds unexpected joy. Doctor Bill Becknell moved to Russia and, despite not speaking the language, began providing medical care to people in the villages above the Arctic Circle. He traveled by truck, snowmobile, reindeer sleigh, and helicopter to reach people who had never seen a doctor or heard about Jesus—people who told him that they’ve been waiting all their lives for someone to explain who created the stars in the night sky. Every trip he made was an adventure. Despite extreme hardships, brokenness, sacrifices, and even near-death experiences along the road, Bill discovered that God has an unfailing love that is beyond comprehension. This is the true story of one man’s journey to confront and understand the suffering, pain, confusion, and despair that challenge our lives. Sorrow is a part of living, but how we handle the tragedy in our lives makes all the difference. This book was written to encourage us not to be afraid to step into the unknown abyss of faith. “This book about battles of faith . . . will be an encouragement to everyone who reads it.” —Ingeborg Fuhrhop-Stetzler, president, Agape Germany

The Sword of Truth series follows Richard Cypher, a young woodsman intent on tracking down his father's murderer. His quest will take him far from home, embroiling him in an ancient war, three-millennia past, that is about to re-ignite with world-shattering violence. Weary of bloodletting and the incessant infighting and intriguing of his allies, Richard realizes that he can't defeat the Imperial Order by military might alone. Instead, he will embark on a course of action that will leave his people feeling betrayed and vulnerable, and which will take both he and Kahlan away from the protection of the D'Haran armies. But he has little choice. Richard, who distrusts prophecy more than anyone, has had a vision. A vision he is compelled to follow, a vision that will separate him from Kahlan, a vision that will take him deep into the Old World and into the heart of the Imperial Order.
With his Logic of Incarnation, James K. A. Smith has provided a compelling critique of the universalizing tendencies in some strands of postmodern philosophy of religion. A truly postmodern account of religion must take seriously the preference for particularity first evidenced in the Christian account of the incarnation of God. Moving beyond the urge to universalize, which characterizes modern thought, Smith argues that it is only by taking seriously particular differences--historical, religious, and doctrinal--that we can be authentically religious and authentically postmodern. Smith remains hugely influential in both academic discourse and church movements. This book is the first organized attempt to bring both of these aspects of Smith's work into conversation with each other and with him. With articles from an internationally respected group of philosophers, theologians, pastors, and laypeople, the entire range of Smith's considerable influence is represented here. Discussing questions of embodiment, eschatology, inter-religious dialogue, dogma, and difference, this book opens all the most relevant issues in postmodern religious life to a unique and penetrating critique.
Seven years ago, Christian Wiman, a well-known poet and the editor of Poetry magazine, wrote a now-famous essay about having faith in the face of death. My Bright Abyss, composed in the difficult years since and completed in the wake of a bone marrow transplant, is a moving meditation on what a viable contemporary faith—responsive not only to modern thought and science but also to religious tradition—might look like. Joyful, sorrowful, and beautifully written, My Bright Abyss is destined to become a spiritual classic, useful not only to believers but to anyone whose experience of life and art seems at times to overbrim its boundaries. How do we answer this "burn of being"? Wiman asks. What might it mean for our lives—and for our deaths—if we acknowledge the "insistent, persistent ghost" that some of us call God?
