Wow! What a Ride! A Journey With Cancer Wow! What a Ride! A Journey with Cancer by Cella Bosma

This book is a meditation on a Christian’s dying of cancer in the 21st century. It provides a specific instance of how the death of one human being can “diminish” the lives of others. Cella believed she had a fighting chance to delay or even ward off the sentence of cancer. She believed in the power of prayer and had hundreds praying for her. This story, told by her “Caringbridge” journal, shows us a woman whose abundance of both faith and courage were strong allies of her tenacious love of life. 284 pages. $18.00. ISBN: 978-0-932914-84-2

After World View After Worldview by Matt Bonzo and Michael Stevens, editors

These collected essays represent a communal attempt, by some of the foremost North American worldview scholars, to respond to some of the pressing questions surrounding the many-sided concept that worldview has become in contemporary Christian discourse. Is worldview too modern a concept? Is it too static a way of considering reality? Is it overly intellectual and an invitation for apologetic abuse? Is it hindering more than helping the enterprise of Christian education to use worldview as the point of integration? These and many other questions are wrestled with in these essays. By looking at both the historical development of the term, its present uses and abuses, and possible future alterations, the thinkers in After Worldview have created a foundational conversation and suggested many intriguing ways to revivify this crucial idea from the deadening effects of over-exposure and under-contemplation. These essays provide serious Christian scholarship in an inviting tone, that wonder and suggests, rather than declares, the good aims and good ends that worldview engagement can and should offer to the Body of Christ. 140 pages. $13.00. ISBN: 978-0-932914-74-3
