One of the best ways to deepen our understanding of Radical Discipleship is to hear stories of those that have gone before us on the journey and of colleagues who are incarnating the vision in their lives today. Ched and Elaine explained the importance of embodied narrative, and interviewed James Loney for our annual All Saints webinar.$9.50
- Outlines a framework for exploring embodied narratives as theological “texts,” drawing on the pioneering work of Ched’s mentor, Dr. James W. McClendon (1924–2000; at right just before his death);
- Explores why it is important for radical Christians to rehabilitate a literacy in and consciousness of “saints,” both traditional and non-traditional, and advocates for a robust celebration of the “Triduum of Saints” as part of our annual rhythm;
- Profiles a variety of exemplary disciples, both past and present, with a focus on radical Catholic circles and the Civil Rights movement, and discusses why their work and witness matters still;
- Offers a few pointers regarding how to become more literate in our own life-narrative.

“Why Sabbath Economics?” The essential problem of our culture is the fantasy of limitlessness. Sabbath Economics offers moral and theological language that offers an alternative to our addictive/compulsive economic system, and that contests our tendencies to exonerate ourselves. Ched Myers and Elaine Enns introduce us to the biblical basis of Sabbath Economics and how we can implement Sabbath Economics practices in our own households.$9.50
- Outlines both the ecological and social rationale for why economics should be a matter of faith and practice for Christians, and a theological framework and hermeneutic approach that “reads the Bible economically in order to read the economy biblically.”
- Explains the meaning of Sabbath Economics; explores the roots of this vision in the Hebrew Bible’s primal narratives of Creation, Exodus and Manna; and presents several studies that trace the footprints of Sabbath Economics through both Testaments.
- Looks at key aspects of our dominant economic cosmology, and of alternatives that privilege community before capital.
- Overviews the Sabbath Economics Household Covenant of key practices for contemporary lifestyle, with an emphasis on how we earn, bank, invest and give our money.
