The Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College last week was extraordinary as always! As expected, it was a book-lovers delight, overflowing with extraordinary works of all genres.  I didn’t get to attend many sessions, but I talked to many festival-goers and checked in occasionally on social media. Here are ten books that had the FFW crowd buzzing.

Birthing Hope: Giving Fear to the Light 

Rachel Marie Stone

Copies of this book arrived just in time for pre-release day sales at the Festival…

In these profound reflections on the mysteries of life and death, Stone unpacks how childbirth reveals our anxieties, our physicality, our mortality. All who are born or give birth will someday die. Yet even in the midst of our fears and doubts, birth is a profoundly hopeful act of faith, as new life is brought into a hurting world that groans for redemption. God becomes present to us as a mother who consents to the risk of love and ultimately lets us make our own way in the world, as every good mother must do.
