A Gentle Answer: Our “Secret Weapon” in an Age of Us Against Them by Scott Sauls
In a defensive and divided era, how can followers of Jesus reveal a better way of living, one that loves others as God loves us? How can Christians be the kind of people who are known, as Proverbs puts it, to “turn away wrath”? Scott Sauls’ compelling book shows Christians how to become people of “a gentle answer” in a politically, relationally, and culturally fractured world by revealing why answering hostility with gentleness is essential, how we can nurture our hearts to do so, and what a gentle answer looks like, both in the church and in the world.

The Mission of God’s People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission by Christopher J.H. Wright
This book shows how God’s big-picture plan directs the purpose of God’s people, the church. Wright emphasizes what the Old Testament teaches Christians about being the people of God. He addresses questions of both ecclesiology and missiology with topics like “called to care for creation,” “called to bless the nations,” “sending and being sent,” and “rejecting false gods.” The Mission of God’s People promises to enliven and refocus the study, teaching, and ministry of those truly committed to joining God’s work in the world.
