LIBERTY FOR ALL Defending Everyone’s Religious Freedom in a Pluralistic Age Andrew T. Walker Foreword by Robert P. George Christians are often thought of as defending only their own religious interests in the public square, but they can become the strongest defenders of reli- gious liberty for all. “ Liberty for All delivers a robust treatment of the concept of re- ligious liberty, a notion not merely political, merely modern, or merely American, but one, as Walker expertly shows, that gets at the heart of what it means to bear God’s image, to exercise moral agency, and to live with love toward all neighbors.” —KAREN SWALLOW PRIOR, author of On Reading Well “I do not know of a better explanation and defense of the doctrine of religious liberty. Walker’s book deserves a wide hearing and a long life.” —PAUL D. MILLER, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University

UNFETTERED Imagining a Childlike Faith beyond the Baggage of Western Culture Mandy Smith Foreword by Walter Brueggemann Mandy Smith invites us to be unfettered from the deeply ingrained habits of Western culture and embrace Jesus’s surprising invitation to the king- dom through childlikeness. “If you are untangling and reconstructing how you engage with God, you simply must read this book.” —TIM SOERENS, author of Everywhere You Look: Discovering the Church Right Where You Are “Even Christian ministry has been fettered by modern Western ideals and presumptions: control, success, calculative thinking, and—fun- damentally—reality-dismissing acedia. What is a passionate, caring, supposedly sophisticated pastor to do? Follow Smith’s journeying in search of God and reality, away from this ‘adultishness’ to become like a child. And don’t just read it; undertake such a journey yourself.” —ESTHER LIGHTCAP MEEK, Geneva College
