    This Is My Body

    This Is My Body is organized around the framework of Communion, a central act of the Christian faith. This book is about finding a new relationship to the acts of Christian community through the experiences of a woman’s body, including pregnancy and childbirth.

    Though the book centers on women’s experiences, it offers an opportunity for women and men to consider how they too might be freed in the gospel proclamation, “This is my body; This is my blood.” She battles church stereotypes attached to mothering and emerges with a deeper understanding of herself and her relationship to the Holy.

    Blessed Endurance

    Pain, struggle, and despair are part of life, and they test our character as God’s people. John Wimmer approaches these challenges to our faith realistically and thoughtfully. He does not offer easy answers or platitudes like “Everything happens for a reason.”

    This inspiring book offers practical help for moving from pain and despair to hope. Wimmer reminds us that with hope we also have faith—not the false belief that our lives will be pain-free but the assurance that God will be with us through our most challenging times and lead us to deeper levels of spiritual growth and wisdom.
