(Rachel Held Evans, Alan Jacobs, Rebecca Solnit, MORE)
Every week we carefully curate a handful of books for church leaders that focus on the health and prosperity of our congregations.
Rachel hero Evans
*** $ 2.99 ***
Evans draws on the best of the latest science and uses its in-depth literary expertise. She examines some of our favorite Bible stories and possible interpretations and tells them through memoirs, original poetry, short stories, monologues and even a short screenplay. Unimpressed by the most difficult parts of the Bible, Evans struggles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating the secrets of Scripture. She discovers that the Bible is not a static work, but a living, breathing, captivating, and confusing book that enables us to join God's loving and redeeming work in the world.
Look Before and After: Testimony and Christian Life
*** $ 3.00 ***
"Testimony". If you are a Evangelical of a certain age, this word will have a strong resonance for you. It has gone a little bit out of fashion, also because we have seen a necessary correction for an excessive emphasis on the individual Christian experience. Without rejecting this “ecclesiastical” phrase, Alan Jacobs would like to rehabilitate the testimony. "What is my story? And how can I say that? "That is the burden of this great book, a narrow volume based on the 2006 Stob lectures at Calvin College." – Christianity today
*** $ 3.40 ***
“This is an exceptional book on contemporary missiology. Lesslie Newbigin writes from four decades of experience in Christian mission and applies the same distinction associated with contextualizing the gospel in another culture to the problems associated with contextualizing the gospel in our western culture. He exposes the omnipresent and subtle synergism that changes the gospel and calls us to a thorough critique of our culture and how we understand or misunderstand the gospel of Christ. . . Important reading for a stimulating perspective on the gospel and Western culture. "- Myron Augburger
*** $ 1.99 ***
"What will it be like not to live on the relatively stable planet that civilization has known in the ten thousand years of the Holocene, but on the congested and resting planet that we are quickly creating?" With her remarkable and unique book A Paradise Built in Hell, Rebecca Solnit has thought about the answer to this question more than anyone else. Your answer is strange and powerfully hopeful. As evidenced by inspired historiography, catastrophes often lead to remarkable temporary communities – paradises of a kind in the midst of the rubble in which people manage to look after each other without instructions from the authorities. "
– Bill McKibben, The New York Review of Books
Placemaker: Cultivate places of comfort, beauty and peace
*** $ 1.99 ***
In Placemaker, Christie Purifoy invites us to notice our soul's desire for beauty, to create our need and to be created again and again. As she thinks about the joys and sorrows of two decades as a table maker and her last few years in a Pennsylvania farmhouse, Christie shows us that we're all gardeners. Regardless of our calling, we spend much of our lives caring for them, keeping them, and caring for them. In every act of creation we reflect the image of God. At every moment of finding beauty, we see that beauty is a secret to be received.
