This book turns down the heat and turns up the light on the question of whether religion should be a force shaping our public policies and our common civic life. We have chosen to examine the many facets of the issue in a thoughtful way.
by L. P. Jacks - Hodder and Stoughton

by Johann Christoph Arnold - Plough Publishing House
Arnold addresses fears that every person faces: fear of death and loss, fear of vulnerability, and fear of suffering. A pastor who has worked with the dying for three decades, Arnold knows that each of us must meet death in our own unique way.
