“What emerges is not a ledger of delights passively logged but a radiant lens actively searching for and magnifying them, not just with the mind but with the body as an instrument of wonder-stricken presence.”

#2:

The Writing Life

Annie Dillard

*** $1.99  ***

*** PLUS, Buy the ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

Slender though it is, The Writing Life richly conveys the torturous, tortuous, and in rare moments, transcendent existence of the writer. Even for Dillard, whose prose is so mellifluous as to seem effortless, the act of writing can seem a Sisyphean task: “When you write,” she says, “you lay out a line of words…. Soon you find yourself deep in new territory. Is it a dead end, or have you located the real subject? You will know tomorrow or this time next year.” Amid moving accounts of her own writing (and life) experiences, Dillard also manages to impart wisdom to other writers, wisdom having to do with passion and commitment and taking the work seriously. “One of the few things I know about writing is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for a later place…. Something more will arise for later, something better.”  – Amazon.com review

With: Reimagining the Way You Relate to God

Skye Jethani

*** $2.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

If we’ve grown weary of Christianity, if we find most any local church uninspiring, maybe the problem lies not in the Christian faith or these faithful bodies, but in our own disgruntled hearts. In With, Skye Jethani tenderly unmasks the clichéd posturing that too often masquerades as genuine communion with Christ. More importantly, he takes readers to the humble place they must occupy–in prayer, studying Scripture, with the Church–if faith, hope, and love are to truly mark our lives.  –James H. Gilmore
 

#4:

Bright-sided: How Positive Thinking is Undermined America

Barbara Ehrenreich

*** $2.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

“Contrarians rejoice! With a refreshingly caustic tone, Barbara Ehrenreich takes on the relentlessly upbeat attitude many Americans demand of themselves, and more damagingly, of others.”—USA Today 
 

#5:

Becoming a Just Church: Cultivating Communities of God’s Shalom

Adam Gustine

*** $6.99 ***

“I know many Christians that have to find organizations outside their church to join with others in seeking social justice. What I appreciate most in Becoming a Just Church is that Adam Gustine insists that, although no efforts toward true social justice are bad, the church is God’s preeminent vehicle for bringing wholeness, reconciliation, redemption, and justice to the world.”  — Shane Blackshear, host of Seminary Dropout Podcast
