movie series of all time, and in this book,
John McDowell explores the many spiritual

films. From the Force to the dark side, the

Love Undocumented: Risking Trust in a
Fearful World by Sarah Quezada
Will you beware or be welcoming? As
a young Christian, Sarah Quezada had a
heart for social justice. She was also
blissfully unaware of the real situations
facing today’s immigrants. Until she met
someone new . . . who happened to be
undocumented. In Love Undocumented,
Quezada takes readers on a journey deep
into the world of the U.S. Immigration
system. Follow her as she walks alongside
her new friend, meets with lawyers, stands
at the US-Mexico border, and
visits immigrants in detention centers. With
wisdom from Scripture, research, and these
experiences, Quezada explores God’s call to
welcome the stranger and invites Christians
to consider how to live faithfully in the
world of closed doors and high fences.
Peaceful Neighbor: Discovering the
Countercultural Mister Rogers by Michael
Fred Rogers was one of the most radical
pacifists of contemporary history. Yet,
we have restricted Fred Rogers to the realm
of entertainment, children, and feelings, and
we’ve taken him out of his political and
religious context. Rogers was an ordained
Presbyterian minister, and although he rarely
shared his religious convictions on his
program, he fervently believed in a God who
accepts us as we are and who desires a
world marked by peace and wholeness.
Fred Rogers used his children’s program as
a platform for sharing countercultural beliefs
about caring for one another, animals and
the earth.
And for serious Bible study, we have 4
new volumes of the Believer’s Bible
Commentaries: First Corinthians, Second
Corinthians, Galatians, and Exodus.
