  • Ambassadors of Reconciliation, Vol. II:

    Diverse Christian Practices of Restorative Justice and Peacemaking

    by Elaine Enns and Ched Myers.: $21.00

    Email us to PURCHASE

    This volume offers three social-analytic models and nine profiles of contemporary practitioners of restorative justice and peacemaking. Paper, 190 pp, Orbis Books.


    “People who work in conflict resolution rarely realize the potential restorative justice offers for addressing the justice dynamics inherent in conflict. Likewise, peacemakers may write off justice advocates as trouble-makers, while non-violent activists often see peacemakers as glossing over underlying wrongs. To bring these approaches together, Enns and Myers offer the metaphor of “full-spectrum” peacemaking. …They also challenge us to go deeper. We must also be aware of and address underlying factors that contribute to and shape conflict, such as inequities of power and privilege and structural injustice. Fortunately, the authors offer analytic tools to help understand these dynamics.”

  • Our God is Undocumented:

    Biblical Faith and Immigrant Justice

    By Ched Myers and Matthew Colwell.: $24.00

    Email us to PURCHASE

    Orbis Books, 228 pp., paperback, with index and bibliography.

    “The stranger has not lodged in the street; I have opened my doors to the sojourner.” (Job 31:32)

    The perspective of the immigrant offers fresh eyes for reading the Bible, which in turns offers a new way of seeing the plight of the stranger and sojourner among us.

    The principle of hospitality and the commandment to welcome the stranger are among the most consistent themes of the Bible. How does that apply to the question of undocumented immigrants in our own country?

    In alternating chapters Myers examines the biblical dimensions of hospitality, sanctuary, the crossing of borders, and God’s predilection for those on the margins, while Colwell relates the stories of immigrants and immigrant rights activists—their hopes, dreams, and sufferings. these are men and women who, by acting upon their common humanity with the “other,” have learned to cross a different kind of boundary.


    "This book will help to shape the theological discourse about immigration in our churches and hopefully the political discourse in our society at large." --Ricardo Moreno

    CONTRIBUTORS: Introduction and Afterword by Ched Myers; Poetry by Rose Berger, Foreword by Denise Nadeau. Chapters by: Sasha Adkins, Jay Beck, Tevyn East, Erinn Fahey, Katarina Friesen, Matt Humphrey, Vickie Machado, Jonathan McRay, Sarah Nolan, Reyna Ortega, Dave Pritchett, Erynn Smith, Sarah Thompson, Lydia Wylie-Kellermann. Cascade Books (Fall 2016) 


    This collection introduces and explores "watershed discipleship" as a critical, contextual, and constructive approach to ecological theology and practice. Features emerging voices from a generation that has grown up under the shadow of climate catastrophe. Watershed Discipleship is a "triple entendre" that recognizes we are in a watershed historical moment of crisis, focuses on our intrinsically bioregional locus as followers of Jesus, and urges us to become disciples of our watersheds.


    Bibliographic framing essays by Myers trace his journey into a bioregionalist Christian faith and practice and offer reflections on incarnational theology, hermeneutics, and ecclesiology. The essays feature more than a dozen activists, educators, and practitioners under the age of forty, whose work and witness attest to a growing movement of resistance and reimagination across North America. This anthology overviews the bioregional paradigm and its theological and political significance for local sustainability, restorative justice, and spiritual renewal. Contributors reread both biblical texts and churchly practices (such as mission, baptism, and liturgy) through the lens of "re-place-ment." Herein is a comprehensive and engaged call for a "Transition church" that can help turn our history around toward environmental resiliency and social justice, by passionate advocates on the front lines of watershed discipleship.
