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:   

Being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire

William Cavanaugh

*** $1.99 ***

Should Christians be for or against the free market? For or against globalization? How are we to live in a world of scarcity? William Cavanaugh uses Christian resources to incisively address basic economic matters — the free market, consumer culture, globalization, and scarcity — arguing that we should not just accept these as givens but should instead change the terms of the debate.



#2:

Burying White Privilege: Resurrecting a Badass Christianity

Miguel de la Torre

*** $1.99 ***

De La Torre argues that centuries of oppression and greed have effectively ruined evangelical Christianity in the United States. Believers and clerical leaders have killed it, choosing profits over prophets. The silence concerning—if not the doctrinal justification of—racism, classism, sexism, and homophobia has made white Christianity satanic. Prophetically calling Christian nationalists to repentance, De La Torre rescues the biblical Christ from the distorted Christ of white Christian imagination.

#3:

Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies

Marilyn McEntyre

*** $1.99 ***

“Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre’s book on the stewardship of language, is a wonderfully composed treatise. . . If you wonder whether caring for words is worth the effort, consider McEntye’s reasoning to a young student: ‘Language is the basic tool for preserving civilization. It seems useful to understand as much as we can about how it works since it’s arguably one of the most potent forms of power that society has produced — that and the atom-splitter.'” – The Christian Century



#4:

Against the Tide: Love in a Time of Petty Dreams and Persisting Enmities

Miroslav Volf

*** $1.99 ***

Miroslav Volf’s writing beautifully points away from the pettiness and selfishness so prominent in our culture today and toward the love that Christians are called to exemplify. His insights in this volume will inform and inspire all who wish to follow that path of love.



#5:

The Essential Rumi

*** $1.99 ***

“If Rumi is the most-read poet in America today, Coleman Barks is in good part responsible. His ear for the truly divine madness in Rumi’s poetry is truly remarkable.” — Huston Smith
