Truth and Community Transformation

Today, "community development" has largely become a secularized industry, one that views poverty as socially or structurally caused, and whose solutions are likewise mechanical and structural. For Christians, the danger of unintentionally operating within this false framework is very real. Developed by a team of seasoned community development practitioners, Truth and Community Transformation provides a practical resource for Christians to apply a rigorously biblical mindset to grass-roots development work. It concisely details a series of biblically-rooted principles covering such topics as agriculture, health, and child development. Written for workers of Christian compassion who deeply desire to function within a distinctively biblical framework.

The Forest in the Seed

In The Forest in the Seed, Scott Allen and Darrow Miller set out to answer these questions: What resources do we need for truly Christian community development, and where do these resources come from? The transformation of impoverished communities requires resources, yet our worldview determines our vision for what resources we have and which are most important. The Bible reveals God as the source of all resource. He is "Jehova Jireh," the God who provides for His creation. But do we have eyes to see this vast array of resources? Do our development activities help others discover their God-given resources or hinder them? The Forest in the Seed is a Biblical exploration of the important topic of resources.

A Life of Transformation

As any Festschrift, this book contains both the academic reflections and the personal recollections on the life and work of Colonel Doner which his friends and fellow laborers have provided. Perhaps what makes this Festschrift a little more unusual is that it is written about a man who not only thought, spoke, or wrote; as are so many Festschrifts — though he did all these things too — but is written in honor of a man who is primarily a man of action.

Progress, Knowledge and God

Those of us who are classical Christians and think that the God of the Bible is not irrelevant to postmodern society need to directly address the relation of God to the creation of new knowledge, as well as to the progress that is driven by this new knowledge.
