Leading Bible scholar Marcus Borg takes us on an incredible journey to discover who Jesus was, what he taught, and why he still matters today. In the definitive book of his career, Borg argues that how we see Jesus affects how we see Christianity and reveals a new way of seeing--a new perspective that can overcome the differences between the literalists and progressives, a path that emphasizes following "the way" of Jesus, the original name of the Jesus movement.
Willie Juan said, "Little friends, what is one thing you think Abba will ask you someday when you are in heaven?"
Willie Juan and Ana couldn't have children of their own, but somehow, their home is always full of children and laughter and love. One day, when gathered together enjoying a beautiful evening and Ana's most delicious sopapillas, Willie Juan asks this most curious question.
As the group discusses the question, all come to the wonderful realization that Abba loves each of us, and we are all smack-dab in the middle of His love.
"Abba loves you so much and wants you to enjoy his gifts every day. Gifts like Ana's absolute best, most delicious sopapillas. And the hummingbirds and burros. And abuelas."
The first of Manning's children's books, this tender message is right on brand for the popular speaker and author who has traveled the world sharing Abba's incredible love for His children.
Drawing on her amazing life experiences, The Rev. Dr. Campbell speaks out on the pressing issues that face us today: love, justice, reconciliation, forgiveness and community.

Of the approximately twelve million undocumented immigrants living in the United States, as many as two million came as children. They grow up here, going to elementary, middle, and high school, and then the country they call home won’t—in most states—offer financial aid for college and they’re unable to be legally employed. In 2001, US senator Dick Durbin introduced the DREAM Act to Congress, an initiative that would allow these young people to become legal residents if they met certain requirements.
And now, more than ten years later, in the face of congressional inertia and furious opposition from some, the DREAM Act has yet to be passed. But recently, this young generation has begun organizing, and with their rallying cry “Undocumented, Unapologetic, and Unafraid” they are the newest face of the human rights movement. In Dreamers, Eileen Truax illuminates the stories of these men and women who are living proof of a complex and sometimes hidden political reality that calls into question what it truly means to be American.
A child dreams of flowers, flowers dream of butterflies, and butterflies dream as well in a serene, rhythmic bedtime story that circles back to a satisfying ending. Young readers will enjoy Elizabeth Cody Kimmel’s picture book, which is beautifully illustrated by Joung Un Kim.
