"I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me."? Matthew 25:42-43 ESV In many Bibles, Christ’s words are set apart with a red font. It should be obvious, but this distinction helps remind us that when God becomes Man and that Man speaks—it’s probably something we cannot afford to miss. So why doesn’t the church take these “red letters” to heart? Why aren’t we doing more to be Christ’s hands and feet to the poor, the disenfranchised, the weary, the ill, the fatherless, the prisoners? It’s all there—in red letters. Why has the Church shirked its responsibilities, leaving the work to be done by governments, rock stars, and celebrities? The Gospel wasn’t only meant to be read—it was meant to be lived. From the HIV crisis in Africa to a single abused and lonely child in Russia, the Church must seize the opportunity to serve with a radical, reckless abandon. Author Tom Davis offers both challenge and encouragement to get involved in an increasingly interconnected, desperate modern world.

Best-selling authors Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo talk candidly about the life and teaching of Jesus and the wisdom he offers our fractured world. For all theChristians facing conflict between Jesus’ words and their own lives; for allthe non-Christians who feel they rarely see Jesus’ commands reflected in the choicesof his followers; Red LetterRevolution is a blueprint for a new kind of Christianity, one consciously centeredon the words of Jesus, the Bible’s “red letters.” Framed as acaptivating dialogue between Shane Claiborne, a progressive young evangelical,and Tony Campolo, a seasoned pastor and professor of sociology, Red Letter Revolution is a life-alteringmanifesto for any Christian. It is a call to a lifestyle that considers firstand foremost Jesus’ explicit, liberating message of sacrificial love. Shane and Tony candidlybring the words of Jesus to bear directly on contemporary issues of liturgy, community,Islam, hell, homosexuality, civil disobedience, and twenty other criticaltopics for modern believers. The resulting conversations reveal the strikingtruth that Christians guided unequivocally by the words of Jesus will frequentlyreach conclusions utterly contrary to those of mainstream evangelical Christianity. If the Jesus whospeaks to you through the gospels is at odds with the Christian culture youknow, if you have ever wanted to stand up and say “I love Jesus, but that’s notme,” Red Letter Revolution will provethat you are not alone—you may have been a Red Letter Christian all along.

This incisive book simply includes all of Jesus' words from the Gospels, arranged by topic and rendered in the ESV translation.

In today's political environment, who speaks for whom is not always clear. Over the past couple of decades, evangelical Christians have tended to be associated with the religious right and the most conservative positions of the Republican Party. Rebelling against this designation are those who prefer to be called Red Letter Christians, desiring to live out Jesus's words in the New Testament. Believing that Jesus is neither a Republican nor a Democrat, Red Letter Christians want to jumpstart a religious movement that will transcend partisan politics and concentrate on issues such as fighting poverty, caring for the environment, advancing peace, promoting strong families, and supporting a consistent ethic of life, all viewed as critical moral and biblical values. Into this arena of thought steps Tony Campolo, the powerful evangelist known for his passionate and prophetic sharing of the radical message of Jesus. In this book, Campolo examines many of the hot-button issues facing evangelicals from the perspective of Jesus's red-letter words in the Bible. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, Campolo will make you think, pray, and act.

We love Red. We burden this colour with dissonant connotations, with playful and mysterious clichés. Red Letter Nights celebrates the myriad meanings of Red and all the offerings we bring to that alter. From the serious to the silly Red Letter Nights asks readers to advance from the familiar as we trip together to and through Nighttown. For there we'll find uneasy characters armed with hopeless expectations, permanent sorrow and occasionally anger. With biting distinct eloquence each of these poems has the ability to stand on its own and loudly proudly proclaim its truth. Fused they form a tapestry a relentless investigation into the prospering realms of Red. This will not be a heroic one night stand: Red Letter Nights.

This is an important work for chess history and also will be of great practical interest as numerous previously unknown or forgotten master chess games are made available in the West for the first time. The Correspondence Chess Championships of the Soviet Union were a series of high-level postal chess events held continuously from 1947 onwards and involving many leading masters and grandmasters of chess from the USSR. Many players who then or later were famous as professional grandmasters or opening theoreticians competed in these events at one time or another. On the break-up of the USSR in the 1990s, the preliminaries of the last two championships had begun and these were completed by the Russian federation with players from other nations of the former USSR. The final of the last championship was due to end in December 2001, about 10 years after the break-up of the Soviet Union; the quarter-final stages had just begun ten years earlier. Sergey Grodzensky profiles the champions and other leading personalities and presents the best games from the events. The games were collected by Tim Harding with assistance from his co-author and from German journalist and correspondence chess gr
