  • Sneak peak of a new poem by Resource Publications author Harold J. Recinos From his forthcoming work, The Coming Day (Wipf and Stock)

    By Hal Recinos, Professor of Church and Society

    Rising

    we are splinters from
    heaven, fragments of
    divine love, beautiful
    and varied dark bodies
    made at the beginning
    of time by God. we are
    the night in the desert
    with toddlers afraid, the
    eyes watchful of clouds
    that rush across borders,
    the public square, the market,
    the cemeteries, the jails,
    and the poor you will see
    in the great house beyond
    stars. we are the hungry,
    the lame, the naked, the sick,
    the women, the widows, the
    Gay and the unnamed leaving
    Christ speechless in church.
    we are the ruins of conquest,
    the blood on your flag, the
    Virgin de Guadalupe, the
    tale of climate change and
    the loud screams you hear in
    your heads, the malls, the raids,
    the streets and inside those fancy
    flat screen TVs. we are the people
    too black, too brown, too red, too
    yellow, too weak, too small, and
    too poor to be alive say the White
    hooded loud voices euphoric
    with idiocy—yet we rise on
    these forbidden streets!!

  • Ronald P. Byars discuses "Believer on Sunday, Atheist by Thursday" On Union Matters! Podcast

    Print"Regular worshipers may be believers on Sunday but (nearly) atheists by Thursday. The general public, not making fine distinctions, lumps mainline Protestants together with fundamentalists fighting to hold on to a privileged status already lost. Circumstances favor religious skeptics, who find themselves with rising influence. Church members in mainline denominations feel caught between a rock and a hard place. Thus comes the critical question of the moment: is Christian faith of an intellectually serious and recognizably generous sort still possible? Union Presbyterian Seminary Professor Emeritus of Preaching and Worship Ronald P Byars's new book "Believer on Sunday, Atheist by Thursday" invites readers to explore basic questions about faith itself, and classically inclined Christian faith in particular."

    Union alumnus Jessica Tate wrote the Foreward to the book and spoke with Dr. Byars about it via Skype. You can listen to their full discussion on Dr. Byars work Believer on Sunday, Atheist by Thursday on the Union Matters! Podcast here

  • "Why I Wrote Finding God in the Ordinary": A message from author Pierce Taylor Hibbs

    PrintYou and I—we see the same world. The ants on the sidewalk, the trees swaying in the wind, the people walking through the morning, the light and the shadow, the dust and the dawn. We’re walking through time as if it were a curtain we keep pushing back, finding more and more of the same.

    But you and I—we see different worlds. We perceive the same phenomena, but we probably don’t interpret it in the same way. And that has everything to do with everything. The ants on the sidewalk point to God’s unending labor. The trees in the wind have a trinitarian aura. The people on their walks promenade through products of God’s speech, just as God himself did in an ancient garden (Gen. 3:8) and a hostile Mediterranean world (John 1:14). The light is not mere photons; it’s also faithfulness. The dust is not drab; it’s divinely governed. And the dawn is not an effect of earth’s rotation; it’s the effect of God’s recurring speech. The curtain that I keep pushing back each day reveals more and more of the God who is here.

    The point is this: life is not so much what you experience as it is how you interpret it. Interpretation is key. Now, what does that mean for us in terms of our experience with God? It means presence.

    Let me offer one extended example. My family took a left out of the wooded driveway at a lake house in Northern Pennsylvania. As we walked, the kids stopped to throw stones in bog puddles. The blue sky wafted thin clouds toward us that morphed in the wind, a pure smoke in the atmosphere. And amidst the scudding clouds, the sun burned brightly on our backs. I felt the warmth coming through my t-shirt. I knew that the warmth was the sun. But I also knew that the speech of God is what established the sun and what upholds the laws that govern light and time (Gen. 1:1; Heb. 1:3; John 1:1; Col. 1:17). God has always been faithful to his speech. He’s always been faith to himself (2 Tim. 2:13), and God is his speech, for his speech is the Son (John 1:1), ever uttered in the potency of the Spirit. So, what was behind the warmth on my back that morning was the faithfulness of God. In fact, I might as well say that the faithfulness of God was warming my back. The light of the sun was nothing but the effect of God’s speech. In feeling the light, I was feeling the effects of a divine person, or, better yet, three persons.

    But this whole interpretation endeavor takes a lot of work. Is it really necessary? Why go through the trouble of working to see the world this way? Why take a commonplace experience and whittle it down to its theological base? Because what you get from that process is a greater awareness of the presence of God. And that’s what you and I want most. We want the presence of God. We crave it. We consume it. We worship God for it. We can never get enough!

    That, in short, is why I wrote Finding God in the Ordinary. In fact, that’s why I’m continuing to write about it. That’s why I’ll always write about it. I will not give up the conquest of daily interpretation, of God-watching. I will not settle for less than the presence of God. Will you?

    Pierce Taylor Hibbs (MAR, ThM) serves as the Associate Director of the Theological English Department at Westminster Theological Seminary. He is the author of Finding God in the Ordinary, as well as Theological English; The TrinityLanguage, and Human Behavior; and The Speaking Trinity. He writes regularly at  piercetaylorhibbs.com.

  • Gregory Wolfe Joins Editorial Team at Wipf and Stock Publishers

    Wolfe’s imprint, Slant, to become a full line of literary books,
    including fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and more

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    Eugene, OR, March 7, 2019— Wipf & Stock, a growing publisher based in the Pacific Northwest, is proud to announce that it has hired Gregory Wolfe to expand his imprint, Slant, into an ambitious line of literary works intended for the trade market.

    Wolfe brings to the position more than three decades of experience as an editor, publisher, writer, teacher, and thought leader in the realms of art, literature, and religion.

    Wolfe is the founder of Image—one of America’s leading literary journals, which he edited for thirty years. He was also the founding director of the Seattle Pacific University MFA in Creative Writing program. Wolfe’s writing has appeared in numerous publications, including the Washington PostWall Street JournalFirst ThingsCommonweal, and America. In 2005 he was a judge for the National Book Awards. His books include Beauty Will Save the WorldIntruding Upon the Timeless, and The Operation of Grace. He is married to the novelist, Suzanne M. Wolfe. They are the parents of four grown children and live in Richmond Beach, Washington.

    When asked about his hopes for Slant, Wolfe said: “We’re going to stay true to our original vision for the imprint, which is to present literature “that explores the mysteries of the human heart and understands that the truth of the human condition can only be approached indirectly, through metaphor and character.”

    Wolfe continued: “The expansion of Slant into a full line of books is both a daunting task and an exciting prospect. Throughout my career I’ve enjoyed not only publishing some of our era’s most gifted authors but also discovering and developing new voices—something I intend to continue through Slant.”

    Wolfe concluded: “The opportunity to publish in every literary genre will provide Slant with a large canvas. I’m planning not only to publish fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction but also literary and cultural criticism with an emphasis on the ever-relevant theme of Christian Humanism, and perhaps even reprinting some classic books that have gone out of print. My concern with Slant, as it has been in everything I’ve done, is to uphold the highest standards of thought and literary craft.”

    W&S Publisher Jon Stock commented: “We are thrilled to have Greg Wolfe on board. Greg has always been a pioneer—whether it’s founding Image, the Glen Workshop, or the SPU MFA program—and we’re eagerly anticipating his breaking new ground with Slant in the coming years.”

    Wolfe’s wife, Suzanne M. Wolfe, his creative partner in both life and literary endeavor, also joins Slant as Senior Editor.
