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:

A New Climate for Christology: Kenosis, Climate Change, and Befriending Nature

Sallie McFague

*** $5.99 ***

“A breathtaking–and breath-giving–regeneration of the ancient symbol of kenosis as a rigorously ecological practice.”
–Catherine Keller, Drew, The Theological School

 

“The late Sallie McFague left us with yet one more amazing gift. In her usual inimitable, clear, and compelling prose, McFague offers Christians a response to the existential threat that climate change poses to our planet and all of its inhabitants.”
–Ellen T. Armour, Vanderbilt Divinity School

#2:

Cross Vision: How the Crucifixion of Jesus Makes Sense of Old Testament Violence

Gregory Boyd

*** $5.99 ***

“If you love the Bible but are torn by its violence, use this book as your therapy. Turn its pages and allow Boyd to unwind the majesty of the way God works. Afterwards, you’ll find yourself more in awe of the God of Israel and even more confident that this God has inspired the Scriptures as his word. You’ll agree with me that Cross Vision was a book well worth your time.”
—David Fitch, Northern Seminary, author of Faithful Presence


“What if the harshest aspects of God in the Old Testament actually help us see the most beautiful aspects of Jesus on the cross? Sound like wishful thinking? Reading Cross Vision is like staring at a two-way mirror and suddenly being able to see what’s happening on the other side. This book will show you how to read the Bible with fresh eyes and cause you to never see God the same way again! Easily one of the best and most transformative books I’ve ever read.”
–Jeremy Jernigan, lead pastor of Abundant Life Church, author of Redeeming Pleasure

#3:

The Psychology of Christian Nationalism: Why People Are Drawn In and How to Talk Across the Divide

Pamela Cooper-White

*** $5.99 ***

 
How do we overcome polarization in American society? How do we advocate for justice when one side won’t listen to the other and cycles of outrage escalate? These questions have been pressing for years, but the emergence of a vocal, virulent Christian nationalism have made it even more urgent that we find a way forward.


In three brief, incisive chapters Pamela Cooper-White uncovers the troubling extent of Christian nationalism, explores its deep psychological roots, and discusses ways in which advocates for justice can safely and effectively attempt to talk across the deep divides in our society.


Pamela Cooper-White is the Christiane Brooks Johnson Professor of Psychology and Religion at Union Theological Seminary in New York. She holds PhDs from Harvard University and the Institute for Clinical Social Work, Chicago, and is the author or coauthor of five books and over seventy scholarly and professional articles. An Episcopal priest and pastoral psychotherapist, Dr. Cooper-White is a certified clinical Fellow in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, a National Board-Certified Counselor, and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois.

#4:

4D Formation: Exploring Vocation in Community

Drew Tucker

*** $3.13 ***

 
“Not since Parker Palmer’s Let Your Life Speak have I read such a helpful and compelling guide for discerning life’s callings. Part practical, part personal, part pastoral, and entirely profound, 4D Formation accompanies readers in their journey through discovery, discernment, development, and decision-making. I especially appreciate Drew Tucker’s full inclusion of multiple religious and secular voices, even as he plumbs the depths of his own Christian worldview. This book will help you live life well, and the world will flourish as a result.” –Jason A. Mahn, author of Neighbor Love through Fearful Days: Finding Purpose and Meaning in a Time of Crisis

#5:

Resurrecting Church: Where Justice and Diversity Meet Radical Welcome and Healing Hope

John Cleghorn

*** $5.99 ***

“Compelling, well-written, and timely, Resurrecting Church: Where Justice and Diversity Meet Radical Welcome and Healing Hope is performative in that it does what it describes, making a rich and diverse case for intersectional churches. Cleghorn’s book is a combination of memoir, history, sociology, theology, and biblical exegesis, revealing the beautiful, messy, complex, liberation God works through communities of faith brave enough to do the work and maintain the relationships of an authentic, multi-axis life together. Cleghorn’s book provides thought provoking and practical insight into how we might be shaped by the Holy Spirit into God’s kin-dom.”
–Jill Duffield, editor of the Presbyterian Outlook
