I Am Who Loves the Prophets is a beautiful and haunting meditation on exile, a central experience in the history of the Jewish people but now experienced by diverse peoples and faiths around the world. For Jewish theologian Marc H. Ellis, exile began when he found his voice of dissent after the Holocaust and after what Israel has done and is doing to the Palestinian people. In these meditations, Ellis brings us to an intimate encounter with God as his exile deepens and he finds meaning in the everyday joys and anxieties of life. Ellis’s meditations are also conversations with exiles of all stripes, an eclectic group of writers—Franz Kafka, Albert Camus, Samuel Beckett, Adrienne Rich—and spiritual guides—Thomas Merton, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Simone Weil, Shunryu Suzuki. Shall we join the conversation?

The prophets come alive when we see that just like us, they too often lived inconsistently. Jonah knew that God cannot be escaped, yet the prophet tried to escape him. Jonah knew that God is merciful -- yet Jonah tried to limit His mercy. In response, the Lord laid hold of Jonah and forced him to come (eagerly ) to Him. He taught the prophet lessons in mercy that are useful for us all. Jonah learned, as must we, that what we think about God determines how-and for what-we live. Originally preached in Israel, this devotional commentary is meant for every Christian who wants to apply the lessons of Jonah in a warm-hearted, practical way. Translated from Hebrew, this study does not ignore technical issues, but helps the reader to understand the issues by tackling them in non-technical language. Principles and applications are offered at the end of each chapter.

The Sermon on the Mount, as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, is the superlative body of religious statements in all literature. It’s the pinnacle substance of the teachings of Jesus, with the Beatitudes being the centerpiece of the discourse. It’s revered for the eloquent and inspiring way it introduces the means to happiness and purpose in life. However, there’s much more to the sermon than inspiration and beauty of expression. In Devotional Reflections on the Sermon on the Mount, author Dr. Charles Lee Holland Jr. offers an interpretation of one of the best-loved and best-known portions of the New Testament. In this devotional, he doesn’t provide a verse-by-verse analysis, but he presents the respective topics individually to emphasize the relevance of the sermon for our time. Holland focuses on showing the abiding influence of the old covenant between God and Israel on one hand and the new covenant between God and his people as taught by Jesus. He shows how the Sermon on the Mount provides ways Christians can truly exercise the light, to present the king of the kingdom, Jesus the Christ. Devotional Reflections on the Sermon on the Mount demonstrates that the teachings of Jesus should be understood as present tense. As you read the Sermon on the Mount, you understand that Jesus continues to speak to his disciples.
