"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.

The Red Letters gives a clear overview of Christianity's foundational message in a unique way: allowing Jesus to speak for himself, without any human commentary. This incisive book simply includes all of Jesus' words from the Gospels, arranged by topic and rendered in the ESV translation. For everyone who would like to rediscover the heart of Christianity—or perhaps discover it for the first time—as Jesus Christ himself communicated it.

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.

i>Red Letter Days dissects the myths and conjecture which surround Arsenal's epoch-defining moments, including key matches and tactical revolutions, and casts fresh light on the impact of important figures in the club's history. Matches under the spotlight include the 1930 'Zeppelin Final', the decisive Stoke semi of 1971, Anfield '89, Parma '94 and the epic duels with Manchester United under Arsène Wenger.

Jon Spurling has pooled 25 years' worth of interviews with Arsenal stars past and present – including George Male, Frank McLintock, Alan Smith, Patrick Vieira and Robert Pires – blending archive research with analysis of crucial events on and off the pitch. The result is a groundbreaking and challenging reassessment of Arsenal's history.

Ved Mehta’s acclaimed Continents of Exile series ends where it began—with a portrait of his father, Amolak Ram Mehta. But this, the final instalment of the eleven-book series, which has been appearing over the last thirty-two years, is its emotional crescendo, the story of the author’s discovery of his father’s affair with a married woman in the British India of the 1930s. The story has its origins in the 1960s, when Mehta by chance finds his father weeping uncontrollably on his mother’s shoulder during a New York dinner party. As a result, the son begins to unravel a family mystery that takes him on a painful and revealing voyage into his father’s British past in Simla, the magical hill station and summer capital of the Raj. Step by step, he is forced to confront his father’s passionate clandestine affair with Rasil, an exquisite beauty who in her teens was abducted from her poor family and raped. She was subsequently rescued by a Hindu philanthropist, only to end up trapped in an abusive marriage to a rich businessman. Years earlier, when the Daddyji of the story was working in the Punjab Himalayas as a medical student, he had met a young shepherdess on his rounds, and been intoxicated by her greenish-blue eyes, fair skin, golden hair, and the Nepalese lilt of her voice. At one moment, he caught sight of her concealed tattoo of the consort of Lord Krishna. She said that she, too, intended to marry the voluptuary deity. Some fifteen years later in Lahore, Dr. Mehta encounters a socialite whom he recognizes as the hill girl of his youth by her tattoo. They re-establish contact and in time become lovers. Their affair is kept alive by the exchange of love letters, or Red Letters—sublime if eccentric works in themselves—that Mehta’s father treasures for the remainder of his life as a memento of his enchanted time. Mehta’s exploration of his father’s love affair proves painful, as the son realizes that the entanglement, a passing episode in sixty-one years of a loving marriage, had shattering psychological side-effects on his mother—a close friend of Rasil’s—and also on his own life. The Red Letters is Mehta’s masterpiece, a work of extraordinary intensity that perfectly re-creates the exotic, closed world of British India. The appearance of this book is a major literary event, signalling the conclusion of Continents of Exile, one of the most remarkable literary achievements of the twentieth century.

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.
