A Newsletter From Brazos Press

Hello from Brazos Press, and welcome to the May issue of Border Crossings.


In the last few weeks, we have had the chance to visit with many of our readers and authors at the International Congress on Medieval Studies and the North American Patristics Society meeting.


In the next few weeks we will be present at both the 2014 Pro Ecclesia Annual Conference for Clergy and Laity and the Sixtieth Annual Convention of the College Theology Society. If you will be attending either of these conferences, make sure to visit us at the Brazos booth.


We hope that you are well. Please contact us with any thoughts or questions.


God bless,

The (Un)Common Good

Jim Wallis thinks our life together can be better. In this timely and provocative book, he shows us how to reclaim Jesus's ancient and compelling vision of the common good-a vision that impacts and inspires not only our politics but also our personal lives, families, churches, neighborhoods, and world.


This revised edition of On God's Side is now available in paperback with a new preface.


Scot McKnight, professor at Northern Seminary, said, "I have read all of Jim Wallis's books, books that call evangelicals to full conversion and an ecclesial faith that works. This is Jim's best book; it is personal, pastoral, and prophetic-a summons to a deeper conversion, to bridge-building commitments to the common good, and to a family life that grounds active faith in a common, caring community."


Cornel West, professor at Union Theological Seminary, said, "Jim Wallis is this country's major prophetic evangelical Christian voice. He has a sense of urgency and hope seldom seen in our cynical time. I hope and pray his voice resounds across this land-and that we pay heed to it."


Anne Lamott, author of Help, Thanks, Wow, said, "I love the work and books and existence of Jim Wallis. His is a profound and always-entertaining voice of reason, reconciliation, and passion for social justice and peace. Each of his books makes me wish I could get it into the hands of more politicians, right-wing Christians, left-wing Christians, secular humanists, economists, and regular people-everyone-so we could see how much we have in common and how much is at stake."


Author and activist Shane Claiborne said, "For decades, Jim Wallis has been an instrumental voice in God's movement toward a better world. Here's his latest gift to the movement-a book that isn't just about where we went wrong, but about how we can join God in making things right again."
