3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 420 libraries worldwide
A cultural survey of three broad but sharply different lifestyles in the United States: the cultural left, the cultural middle, the cultural right. The cultural left is made up of inner-directed, self-fulfillment baby boomers ; the cultural middle constitutes career-oriented, successful business people; the cultural right, the largest lifestyle group, bolds to traditional values and conventional morality. Discusses the relationship of lifestyle issues to mainline churches

Blue-collar ministry : facing economic and social realities of working people by Tex Sample( Book )
3 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
How is the church ministering to the needs of men and women who work on assembly lines and in machine shops? Not always very effectively, concludes Sample, who draws his deep understanding of the working-class community from the personal experiences of one who "has been there." Sample challenges churches that want to develop a relevant ministry to abandon their stereotypical images of working-class people and to cultivate a sensitive response to blue-collar needs. - Amazon

A guide to how the church can faithfully understand and employ new technologies to communicate the gospel to the generations formed by electronic culture. When it comes to communicating the gospel through new media and technologies, churches are often faced with one of two bad options
Blue-collar resistance and the politics of Jesus : doing ministry with working-class whites by Tex Sample( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 120 libraries worldwide
To be faithful to the gospel, all ministry must be indigenous; it must participate in the distinctive practices and perspectives of the people among whom ministry is taking place. Because our society tends to ignore or deny the reality of class divisions and prejudice, too many congregational leaders know too little about the world of working class whites. Continuing his groundbreaking work on class and American religion, Sample opens up the lives and lifestyles of working class whites in order to engage with them in authentic and transformational ministry
The future of John Wesley's theology : back to the future with the apostle Paul by Tex Sample( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
This book approaches the future of John Wesley's theology in terms of a preferred future by looking back to the Apostle Paul. In a comparison of Wesley's theology with the writings of St. Paul, Tex Sample maintains that Wesleyans tend to read Paul through Wesley, but that in the future we need to read Wesley through Paul. Key issues between Wesley and Paul are considered in this book: justification by faith, sanctification, the faith in/of Christ, the powers, the individual/social concept in Wesley that is absent in Paul, and, finally, the issue of a justice of the common good. The conclusion develops the implications of this study for the future of the church and its witness
A Christian justice for the common good by Tex Sample( Book )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
Do Christians bring a unique, scriptural understanding of social justice to bear on the ills of society? Would such an understanding reshape the way Christians engage and partner with others working to create a more just world? Much of the modern conversation around creating justice focuses on ideas that too often reduce justice to human rights, procedural justice, and even the consumerism of the contemporary culture/economy. While the priorities of human rights and due process are necessary for fashioning a just world, the Christian understanding of the common good is much richer and calls the church beyond fairness to forms of liberation, compassion, mercy, and peace that are even more radical than the best notions of justice that characterize the nation-state at the beginning of the 21st century. A Christian Justice for the Common Good describes a Christian justice for the common good and what it looks like on the ground in real world settings. Calling Christians (individuals, as well as communities of faith) to a concrete version of social well-being befitting faithful life in Jesus and God's vision of justice for the world, Tex Sample drills deeper and identifies the skills that must be cultivated to do justice work with others -- work that will create a lasting impact while extending a Christian vision for the common good. The conclusion? The freedom God offers in Christ finds its place in concrete Christian efforts and the graced wherewithal of people who work generously with one another for a new and just life together
