Empire Erotics and Messianic Economies of Desire

P. Travis Kroeker

Pairing biblical and literary sources, the 2013 J.J. Thiessen lectures undertake a theological exploration of the crucial interconnections between desire (eros) and economics in our intimate and institutional relationships to money, material goods, and our most basic human aspirations. Beginning with an exploration of the distortion of messianic desire—self-emptying love—into the self-serving erotics of empire, this book asks how the messianic community can live out an alternative liturgy of service in the everyday.


A University of the Church for the World: Essays in Honour of Gerald Gerbrandt

edited by Paul Dyck and Harry J. Huebner

This book answers the question of what it means to be a Mennonite university in a descriptive rather than a prescriptive way. It draws on the thought and experience of the faculty, staff, and alumni of Canadian Mennonite University, as well as the leaders of the churches that formed it and a neighbouring provincial university. While the book comes out of the life of CMU, it is meant as a resource for anyone interested in questions of religion and university.


Still Daring to Hope 

John Regehr

The underlying theme of the meditations found in this book is the life-long path of deepening transformation that lies open before each of us. John Regehr’s words come to us out of the second half of his life, a life of seeking to do what is right, of determination to do no harm, of yearning to be a good and faithful servant, and by the grace of God, of offering oneself to others as a fellow pilgrim on the path toward transformation.  According to the author, if we consent to God’s hopes for us, we can, and will, change for the better, always still daring to hope.

Business Ethics Rooted in the Church: A Theological Paradigm for Christians in Business

Werner Franz

Franz invites readers into a new model for framing business ethics from a Christian standpoint. He calls for business ethics to be considered through the concept of the church and its "practices". Although Franz's own experience of this dynamic comes from the context of the Mennonite churches in Paraguay, the issues addressed are relevant for a variety of circumstances.
