Jones, Alexander H.; Huff, James; Kellums Baraka, Mandy; Meitzner Yoder, Laura S. – Christian Higher Education, 2019

Asian Americans are the fastest-growing population of any minority group in the United States (Lopez, Ruiz, & Patten, 2017).

Bouma-Prediger, Steven – Christian Higher Education, 2018
Reconciliation is often understood as only having to do with our broken relationship with God. Yet we are alienated not only from God, but also from other people and the natural world. So we need help. Our brokenness extends to all things, thus we need to be put back into right relationships with all things. Such is the good news of Scripture: God…

Best, Neil A.; Jun, Alexander – Christian Higher Education, 2017

Herr, Meryl A. C. – Christian Higher Education, 2016
