  • Avoiding the Void (ebook)

    $1.10

    Job refused to look away from the void in his pain. He refused to accept cheap solutions to the problem and ‘causes’ of his suffering. And just like how Job’s friends sought to cover-up Job’s trauma via inauthentic explanations, could it be that Malaysia’s leaders are always seeking to pull a veil over the abyss within the country via the promise of growth, wealth and prosperity, as if money solves everything? What happens, then, when the tap runs dry?

  • Engage or Escape? (ebook)

    $1.10

    In our quest for educational reform, we must fight not only for choice for the privileged but also emancipation for the oppressed. Such a fight should resonate all the more with Christians, as we serve a Saviour who consistently identified with the last and the least of society.

  • Naming Names (eBook)

    $1.10

    Naming the powers is not an exercise in generality. And if the appropriate action following the act of naming is to cast a vote, then ipso facto political naming cannot be separated from electoral endorsement. But if a preacher should advise his flock on whom to vote for, would this mean that the Church has sold out to political partisanship?

  • Power and Governance (eBook)

    $1.10

    Power is in a constant flux and power shifts like the ebbs and flow of the tide. This is amply demonstrated in the ‘political tsunami’ of 2008 in Malaysia. This flux is in no small measure determined by the ethical performance of the ruling government of the day. The rise and fall of any ruling power depends largely on the manner of its governance in which the use/misuse of power is of quintessential determinant factor.

  • Recovering the Unspeakable (eBook)

    $1.10

    Probably due to concern about the sensitivities of Muslim listeners, Christians in Malaysia—and the rest of the world—are reluctant to speak in public about Jewish and Christian exilic consciousness. We are reluctant to speak about a consciousness which is rooted in Scripture and expressed powerfully through Christian martyrs. I believe this is unwise, for the result of this reluctance is a veiling of what Christians are prepared to die for.

  • Strengthening Democracy in Malaysia (eBook)

    $1.10

    What is democracy? It is more than just elections. It involves the existence of a space which allows for people to freely debate on public issues and government policies as well as present alternative ideas without the fear of repercussions. If the health of a democratic society is dependent on the existence of such a space, how can we ensure a free and vibrant public sphere?

  • The Bible & the Ballot (eBook)

    $5.60

    How do we relate Christianity to political engagement in Malaysia today? This is the question that we, as part of the community of believers, are trying to answer in this book. It is our conviction that “if Jesus Christ is not Lord of all, He is not Lord at all”. We proclaim the lordship of Jesus over every aspect of life. Therefore, it is important for us to reflect on the relationship between what we confess on Sunday and what is happening in the country every day.

  • The Gospel, Sociopolity, and Malaysian Society (eBook)

    $1.10

    The word ‘gospel’ or ‘evangel’ is well-known and well-used among Christians. If the gospel is central to Christianity yet understood differently, how then can Malaysian Christians from diverse background relate the gospel to the sociopolitical situation of the country? This essay will explore this question by highlighting a common emphasis of the gospel that all Christians share, and showing how this commonality relates to the present sociopolitical challenges in Malaysia.

    Christmas is a paradox. Sometimes it can be a stressful or depressing time of year. Yet Christmas should be a time of great joy.

May this collection of meditations help you refocus on the true meaning of Christmas, and in getting the true picture we find our faith renewed and our mission strengthened.

  • Vote for Change (eBook)

    $1.10

    In most mature democracies, the government changes hands from time to time. A change of government doesn’t usher in the apocalypse. In fact, knowing how power tends to corrupt, perhaps political parties should take turns at being the opposition for seasons of humbling and heart searching.

  • Vote! (eBook)

    $1.10

    Some Christians wonder if it really is a Christian duty to vote. After all, there are no explicit directions to vote in the Bible. And aren’t we committed to seeing society changed through seeing individuals changed by the gospel? So why should Christians vote?

  • Why am I Attending Vigils? (eBook)

    $1.10

    My purpose in this essay is to clarify my thoughts, to say at least tentatively, why I am attending the candlelight vigils — an illegal act in Malaysia. Why do I deliberately disobey the law? Why do I do it repeatedly? Why do I encourage others to do the same?
