SISTER MADONNA BUDER is 80 years old, has run more than 340 triathlons, and doesn’t know what all the fuss is about. In The Grace to Race, she shares the no-nonsense spirit and deep faith that inspired her extraordinary journey from a prominent St. Louis family to a Catholic Convent and finally to championship finish lines all over the world. As a beautiful young woman, she became an elegant equestrian and accomplished amateur actress. But as she describes in this intimate memoir, she had a secret plan as early as 14: she wanted to devote her life to God. After being courted by the most eligible bachelors in her hometown, she chose a different path and became a Sister of the Good Shepherd. She lived a mostly cloistered life as a Nun until her late forties, when a Priest suggested she take a run on the beach. She dug up a pair of shorts in a pile of donated clothes, found a pair of second-hand tennis shoes, and had a second epiphany. This time, she discovered the spiritual joy of pushing her body to the limit and of seeing God’s natural world in all its splendor. More than thirty years later, she is known as the Iron Nun for all the triathlons she has won. Just five years ago, the age 75–79 category was created for her at the Hawaiian Ironman in Kona, where she completed a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a full 26.2-mile marathon in record time. Now she has set her sights on a new goal: inaugurating another new Ironman age group, 80–84, in 2010. Sister Madonna holds dozens of records, has broken dozens of bones, and tells of dozens of miracles and angels that propelled her to a far-flung race. "It is my faith that has carried me through life’s ups and downs," she writes. "Whenever injured, I wait for the Lord to pick me up again and set me on my feet, confidently reminding Him, ‘God, you know, my intent is to keep running toward you.’" The Grace to Race is the courageous story of a woman who broke with convention, followed her heart, and found her higher mission.
Race over Grace is a fascinating, critical look at a religion on the margins of modern American culture: the Christian Identity Movement. Embraced as truth by some in militia and far-right racialist groups, and by others not politically involved, Christian Identity is supported by advocates who promote such disturbing beliefs as the Jews being the literal offspring of Satan and that only Caucasians may go to heaven. In this book, Reformed scholar and pastor Dr. Charles H. Roberts examines the historical underpinnings of the movement and its better known exponents, past and present. He provides the reader with a uniquely Biblical, Reformed, evangelical analysis of the major doctrines of the movement.

“The Race of Grace” contains brief chapters that introduce topics developed more in depth by other books by the author. The opening chapters contrast Paul’s discussion of his own successful running of the race of grace with that of the Galatian believers who had run well initially but then fallen from grace subsequently. The author ties this race analogy in with his own discussion of these themes as found in his other books, particularly “Breaking the Rocking Horse,” “Sealed and Secure,” and “Fallen from Grace but Not from Perfection.” Like the author’s other introductory books, this release uses proveitists as a coined term to describe the opposing theology of those who allege that the way professing believers live proves whether or not they are saved. The purpose of this book is to provide unconditional security as an alternative to proveitism. Forfeitist is the coined term used to describe those conditional securitists who maintain that some believers actually lose the free gift of eternal life if they are unfaithful or cease to believe. This form of conditional security in particular is countered by a survey of the principle arguments used in “Sealed and Secure,” and “Fallen from Grace but Not from Perfection.” However, “The Race of Grace” has an additional chapter to augment that discussion by delving into the biblical affirmation of believers as being given to Jesus. The principle texts used developed in “The Race of Grace” in relation to believers being given are Jn 6:37-40 and Jn 10:27-29. Believers are given permanently by the Father to Jesus. Additionally, believers are given eternal life permanently. The supposition that believers must continue to believe (much less perform righteously) in order to remain secure is nullified by a thoughtful examination of these texts. Even if following the Lord in Jn 10:27 is supposed to represent linear contingency, it nonetheless is shown to be compatible with unconditional security. Indeed, four plausible ways of harmonizing Jn 10:27 with Jn 10:28-29 are considered. An appendix discusses the role of public confession and water baptism in the believer’s role of running the race of grace. These two matters are required for salvation from disqualification pertaining to rewards rather than for salvation from eternal damnation in hell. The primary benefit of this book is to encourage a biblically accurate understanding of unconditional security as an alternative to the ever popular works righteousness of proveitism and forfeitism. The legitimate biblical concern pertaining to believers running and wining the race of grace should not be misconstrued so as to bring their security from hell into question.
An innovative, substantial intervention in critical race theory, this book brings together an impressive roster of thinkers to trace the question of race in modern philosophical inquiry and explore its influence on contemporary philosophy. --Lucius T. Outlaw, Jr., Vanderbilt University

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: San Francisco Chronicle, The Christian Science Monitor, Kansas City Star. A profoundly moving and deeply personal memoir by the co-host of National Public Radio’s flagship program All Things Considered. While exploring the hidden conversation on race unfolding throughout America in the wake of President Obama’s election, Michele Norris discovered that there were painful secrets within her own family that had been willfully withheld. These revelations—from her father’s shooting by a Birmingham police officer to her maternal grandmother’s job as an itinerant Aunt Jemima in the Midwest—inspired a bracing journey into her family’s past, from her childhood home in Minneapolis to her ancestral roots in the Deep South. The result is a rich and extraordinary family memoir—filled with stories that elegantly explore the power of silence and secrets—that boldly examines racial legacy and what it means to be an American.

The Christian life is a marathon. Through the gospel, God calls us to sustained, persevering effort. But realistically, Christians are not always pressing forward. Sometimes we wander off the narrow path, slip, and hurt ourselves. To the confused, injured runner, this book says, "God can help you. You can finish the race, and finish well."
As colonists made their way to New England in the early seventeenth century, they hoped their efforts would stand as a "citty upon a hill." Living the godly life preached by John Winthrop would have proved difficult even had these puritans inhabited the colonies alone, but this was not the case: this new landscape included colonists from Europe, indigenous Americans, and enslaved Africans. In Race and Redemption in Puritan New England, Richard A. Bailey investigates the ways that colonial New Englanders used, constructed, and re-constructed their puritanism to make sense of their new realities. As they did so, they created more than a tenuous existence together. They also constructed race out of the spiritual freedom of puritanism.
These sermons make a strong exegetical and homiletical case, each based upon specific biblical texts, for the central biblical claim for God's radical, unconditional, and universal grace to humankind. They address a variety of themes and texts for Ordinary Time, with the intent of surprising the reader, preacher, or hearer with a fresh and attention-getting perspective on the gospel message. This volume is filled with sermons that deal in every case with profound biblical and theological issues, exegetically grounded in direct interpretation of Scripture texts, and woven together in such a way as to consistently bring to the surface the mainstream of the radical grace theology that is the Word of God throughout both the Hebrew Bible (OT) and the Christian Scriptures (NT). That grace theology mainstream runs from Genesis 3:15 to the last chapter of The Revelation of St. John.
Love on the Wing features poetry describing the life-changing transformation in a life that is committed to Jesus Christ and in a heart that is His forever.
Grace is one of Gods most amazing gifts. It provides us with everything we need to live in perfect freedom: pardon for our sins, healing for our hearts, the companionship of Gods indwelling Holy Spirit, and access to freely cultivate our relationship with him. We work, worship, and enjoy life surrounded by his unconditional love. His grace upholds us, fills us, and sustains us. Since we are forgiven people, the Lord responds to us not as enemies but as his dearly loved children. This book provides you with practical and fresh insights to the magnificent power of Gods grace. The knowledge that we live under the covering of Gods grace gives us security about our position in Christ boldness to live for Christ peace for today because we can fully trust in his sovereignty hope for the future. The Lord is committed to transforming each of us according to his special plan for our lives.

In Race: A Theological Account, J. Kameron Carter meditates on the multiple legacies implicated in the production of a racialized world and that still mark how we function in it and think about ourselves. These are the legacies of colonialism and empire, political theories of the state, anthropological theories of the human, and philosophy itself, from the eighteenth-century Enlightenment to the present. Carter's claim is that Christian theology, and the signal transformation it (along with Christianity) underwent, is at the heart of these legacies. In that transformation, Christian anti-Judaism biologized itself so as to racialize itself. As a result, and with the legitimation of Christian theology, Christianity became the cultural property of the West, the religious ground of white supremacy and global hegemony. In short, Christianity became white. The racial imagination is thus a particular kind of theological problem. Not content only to describe this problem, Carter constructs a way forward for Christian theology. Through engagement with figures as disparate in outlook and as varied across the historical landscape as Immanuel Kant, Frederick Douglass, Jarena Lee, Michel Foucault, Cornel West, Albert Raboteau, Charles Long, James Cone, Irenaeus of Lyons, Gregory of Nyssa, and Maximus the Confessor, Carter reorients the whole of Christian theology, bringing it into the twenty-first century. Neither a simple reiteration of Black Theology nor another expression of the new theological orthodoxies, this groundbreaking book will be a major contribution to contemporary Christian theology, with ramifications in other areas of the humanities.
