Each week, we carefully curate a handful of books for church leaders that orient us toward the health and the flourishing of our congregations.


#1:

Searching for Sunday:
Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church

Rachel Held Evans

*** 99c ***

“Evans has written a zinger of a book. Grounded in the deep things of faith, she writes in a vivid style and transposes the claims of faith into  compelling concrete narrative. Her book is a forceful invitation to reconsider that faith has been misunderstood as a package of certitudes rather than a relationship of fidelity.”
-Walter Brueggemann


 



#2:

The Gospel in a Pluralist Society

Lesslie Newbigin

*** $2.99 ***

Newbigin asks the questions: How does the gospel relate to a pluralist society? What is the Christian message in a society marked by religious pluralism, ethnic diversity, and cultural relativism? Should Christians encountering today’s pluralist society concentrate on evangelism or on dialogue? How does the prevailing climate of opinion affect, perhaps infect, Christians’ faith?
 




 


#3:
The Seven Storey Mountain:
An Autobiography of Faith

Thomas Merton

*** $2.99 ***

A modern-day Confessions of Saint Augustine, The Seven Storey Mountain is one of the most influential religious works of the twentieth century.  It tells of the growing restlessness of a brilliant and passionate young man whose search for peace and faith leads him, at the age of twenty-six, to take vows in one of the most demanding Catholic orders—the Trappist monks.
 
 


#4:

How the Irish Saved Civilization

Thomas Cahill

*** $4.99 ***

In this delightful and illuminating look into a crucial but little-known “hinge” of history, Thomas Cahill takes us to the “island of saints and scholars,” the Ireland of St. Patrick and the Book of Kells. Here, far from the barbarian despoliation of the continent, monks and scribes laboriously, lovingly, even playfully preserved the West’s written treasury. When stability returned in Europe, these Irish scholars were instrumental in spreading learning, becoming not only the conservators of civilization, but also the shapers of the medieval mind, putting their unique stamp on Western culture.

#5:

Keeping Place:
Reflections on the Meaning of Home

Jen Pollock Michel

*** $4.99 ***

“With her signature depth and grace, Jen Pollock Michel casts a vision of home as both a human desire and a heavenly promise. She calls us to build imperfect dwellings alongside our loved ones in this life precisely because we are destined for a perfect dwelling in the life to come. Women and men alike will find joy in her vision of keeping house. This is a book that invites you in and lets you stay awhile, and I’m grateful for it.”
– Katelyn Beaty
