  • Speaking of Rape: The Limits of Language in Sexual Violations

    Speaking of Rape: The Limits of Language in Sexual Violations

    Danielle Tumminio Hansen (Author)

    Rape survivors need words to recover and tell their stories. But the words available often fail to describe their experiences, which isolates and silences them, enables future perpetration, and lets rape remain unacknowledged. Tumminio Hansen offers fresh ways of speaking and listening that reframe how we can describe, discuss, and address rape.

  • Poor Technology: Artificial Intelligence and the Experience of Poverty

    Poor Technology: Artificial Intelligence and the Experience of Poverty

    Levi Checketts (Author)

    Artificial intelligence (AI) has demonstrated such advancement that people ask if it should be granted the moral status of personhood. This book argues that this view assumes that personhood corresponds to how well one's thinking mirrors the biases, worldview, and intelligence of the middle class, relegating the poor to the status of "nonhuman."

  • Unborn Bodies: Resurrection and Reproductive Agency

    Unborn Bodies: Resurrection and Reproductive Agency

    Margaret D. Kamitsuka (Author)

    The afterlife is often a concern during fragile moments of reproductive loss. The historical church ignored the death of unborn beings and the precarity of pregnancy, focusing more on the soul than the body. A new approach to eschatology is needed that upholds emerging unborn life and the pregnant believer's moral agency.

  • Christianity in Blue: How the Bible, History, Philosophy, and Theology Shape Progressive Identity

    Christianity in Blue: How the Bible, History, Philosophy, and Theology Shape Progressive Identity

    David A. Kaden (Author)

    Christianity in Blue shows how liberal values and progressive attitudes are the fruits of taking seriously both the Bible and Christian tradition.

Christianity in Blue helps both progressive and conservative Christians better understand the importance of the Bible, theology, history, and philosophy for building a loving church for everyone.

  • Passion for Nothing: Kierkegaard’s Apophatic Theology

    Passion for Nothing: Kierkegaard’s Apophatic Theology

    Peter Kline (Author)

    The main contention of this book is that Kierkegaard’s apophaticism is an ethical-religious difficulty, concerning itself with the "whylessness" of existence. This is a theme that Kierkegaard inherits from the philosophical and theological traditions stemming from Meister Eckhart. The book examines Kierkegaard’s apophaticism with reference to five themes: indirect communication, God, faith, hope, and love. Across these themes, the aim is to lend voice to "the unruly energy of the unsayable" and, in doing so, let Kierkegaard’s theological, spiritual, and philosophical provocation remain a living one for us today.

    Black Power and the American Myth: 50th Anniversary Edition

    C T Vivian (Author)

    - the myth that legislation leads to justice.

    - the myth that America is an open society where any minority group can advance.

    - the myth that an ethic of love forms the core of the American conscience.
