Justice in the Burbs

Check it out at Will's blog. I hope you'll be able to pick this up at Joseph-Beth by the end of the week. Also note that Publisher's Weekly has called Lisa Samson "one of the most powerful voices in Christian fiction," and you can pick up her new Quaker Summer at JB now.

Mike Stavland suggests why you might not bother reading the book.

Finallly, they've done an interview with the Relevant magazine folks.

Sojourners Magazine: Jesus of the Cul-de-Sac.

Learning and teaching the art of being human again is part and parcel with the Gospel proclamation and the expansion of God's Kingdom. Kevin Rains makes some very practical suggestions.

Noakes reminds of us a word from N.T. Wright. From his sidebar:
"Christians are called to leave behind, in the tomb of Jesus Christ, all that belongs to the brokenness and incompleteness of the present world. It is time, in the power of the Spirit, to take up our proper role, our fully human role, as agents, heralds, stewards of the new day that is dawning."
Have a nice day.
