Here are 5 essential ebook deals that are worth checking out:
(Thomas Merton, Mary Oliver, Lauren Winner, MORE)

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


Contemplative Prayer

Thomas Merton

*** $4.99 ***

“[Readers] will find Contemplative Prayer valuable. Merton shows that all living theology needs to be rooted in exercises where men somehow happily establish contact with God.” –New York Times Book Review


Wearing God: Clothing, Laughter, Fire, and Other Overlooked Ways of Meeting God

Lauren Winner

*** $1.99 ***

“Lauren’s curiosity about the life of faith is so compelling—and her intelligence so engaging—that there is nothing more satisfying than settling down with a new book from her. The only problem is that it is impossible to read her without being changed; so advance at your own risk.”  – Barbara Brown Taylor




A Thousand Mornings: Poems

Mary Oliver

*** $1.99 ***

“Her compact poems are conversational and teasing, yet their taproots reach deeply into the aquifers of religion, philosophy, and literature . . . Oliver is funny and renegade as she protests cultural vapidity, greed, violence, and environmental decimation and ravishing in her close readings of nature.”


Why Save the Bankers?: And Other Essays on Our Economic and Political Crisis

Thomas Piketty

*** $1.99 ***

“The questions explored in these brilliant essays cut to the heart of our failing economic and democratic systems. If you have been influenced by Piketty’s landmark work on inequality, make sure to read this next.” — Naomi Klein


The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction

Adam McHugh

*** $3.99 ***

“At a time when we are drowning in words―both digital and spoken―this quiet little book throws us a life preserver. The Listening Life is gentle, thoughtful, biblical, and eminently practical. It outlines a broad theology of listening alongside specific and clear practices that teach the reader to listen in a new way. Whether you are a loud lover of words or a shy lover of solitude, this book will likely convict you.”  -Tish Harrison Warren
