Celebrating and Caring for the Earth!

Charged with Grandeur: Sermons and Practices for Delighting in God’s Creation is just the kind of contribution we are needing in the church as we seek to advance our commitment to care of creation. The sermons in this collection are vivid and engaging as well as informative on key ecological challenges. Each one is followed by probing questions for reflection that invite into a deeper grappling with biblical and theological themes that can helpfully guide us. The addition of a “take action” section brings constructive, practical proposals for action. Each one inspires us to hope that there are things we can do that will make a difference. Chris Keating has here provided a timely, accessible, and valuable new resource that evokes delight in God’s creation and energize for more faithful and effective ministries of creation care.

Living a Contemplative Life

The Faith of a Skeptic explores the diverse ways in which truth is perceived. Skepticism reminds us that the search for truth is not the same as the search for certainty. Firmly held beliefs can misguide us and impede our acceptance of new information. In Greek philosophy belief was a lower form of knowledge. The book has received praise from a wide audience.

Mr. Lentz holds nothing back in sharing his spiritual and social odyssey, illuminating his philosophical insights with graphic portraits of family and friends.
—F. Gregory Campbell, President Emeritus, Carthage College.

We who struggle by the minute with our place and purpose in life will recognize in Tom Lentz the honesty and authenticity of a fellow searcher. For me, these pages resonate with important Truths and speak of a life contemplatively lived. We desperately need the wisdom of such lives in these divided times.
