When was the last time you had an honest, heartfelt, yet kind and productive conversation with someone about depression, mental illness, substance abuse, pornography, premarital sex, racism, divorce, abortion, LGBT issues, or politics? Our tendency is either to avoid talking about such volatile topics at all--even with other Christians--or to go on the attack, causing rifts that do nothing to encourage further discussion or growth. If you're tired of avoiding tough conversations, if you want to be a light in a dark world but you're not sure how, Challenging Conversations is the book you've been waiting for. With straightforward answers to some of the most challenging moral issues disrupting the church, this book will help you build your confidence using three simple steps to becoming a conversant Christian. Each chapter begins with a true story, clarifies misconceptions and misunderstandings about the subject, and equips you to build rapport, ask the right questions, find points of agreement, and take the next fruitful step in the relationship. Because even if we disagree on a moral issue, that shouldn't make us mortal enemies.

The object of much debate, attention, and scholarship since it first aired more than 20 years ago, The Simpsons provides excellent, if unexpected, fodder for high school and college lesson plans. After all, laughing students are hardly sleeping students! But The Simpsons also provides a familiar student knowledge base which instructors can use as a jumping-off point to introduce concepts in literature, composition, linguistics, cultural studies, gender studies, and media appreciation. The authors, both of whom have been teaching The Simpsons for more than a decade, share exercises, prompts, and even syllabi that have proven successful in their own courses. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

By New York Times bestselling author Jay Heinrichs...THE PROPHET JOAN takes you on a moving, humor-filled ride through a snowy murder mystery, small-town politics, eloquent shrimp, and the nature of prophecy. "EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE A CHARACTER IN AMERICAN LITERATURE KNOCKS YOU FLAT: for wit, imagination, resilience, wisdom. Meet Joan Mudgett. Who, at fourteen, lives on her own in a farm house beneath Jumper Mountain, outside a small village in New Hampshire. She cross country skis in the middle of the night, reads Moby-Dick obsessively, makes good money from stargazers who come to her field to view the northern lights, and actually goes to school. Her view of the world, like Huck Finn's, has been colored by traumatic events but remains generous and satirical. One night a raven lands beside her campfire and, in plain English, declares himself to be the archangel Gabriel, and Joan's world is upended. I loved this book. I laughed out loud. I appreciated the deep and particular sense of place, and I treasured its insights."-- Peter Heller, author of The Dog Stars and The Guide
