(Walter Brueggemann, Madeleine L’Engle, Robert Farrar Capon, 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.



#1:

Celebrating Abundance: Devotions for Advent

Walter Brueggemann

*** $3.99 ***

To “prepare for Christmas” in our society is to be sucked into a vortex of indulgence, from decor to gifts to calorie-rich foods. Layer upon layer of tinsel, lights, and wrapping paper create the illusion of abundance, disguising the feeling of emptiness in our souls. The arrival of the Messiah, by contrast, is true abundance disguised by the impression of scarcity.



#2:

Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation

Jennifer Harvey

*** $1.99 ***

“Dear White Christians is a must-read. This kind of unflinching analysis is both rare and powerful. Through thorough analysis coupled with prophetic vision, Harvey decodes the mystery of the failure of the `racial reconciliation’ movement and offers clear direction forward toward the repair of our racialized society. All seminarians and pastors should read this book. And if every person in the pews of white churches read Harvey’s love letter to them, then our nation might actually have a chance to realize Dr. King’s vision of the beloved community.”  – Lisa Sharon Harper

#3:

The Summer of the Great-Grandmother

Madeleine L’Engle

*** $1.99 ***

“Anyone who has dealt with, or will soon deal with, the death of a parent will find some solace, understanding, and companionship in this perceptive book, which is, in the end, more about living than about dying.”
The Washington Post



#4:

Kingdom, Grace, Judgment: Paradox, Outrage, and Vindication in the Parables of Jesus

Robert Farrar Capon

*** $4.99 ***

Here in one volume is Robert Farrar Capon’s widely praised trilogy on Jesus’ parables — The Parables of the Kingdom, The Parables of Grace, and The Parables of Judgment. These studies offer a fresh, adventurous look at all of Jesus’ parables, treated according to their major themes. 



#5:

As I Recall: Discovering the Place of Memories in Our Spiritual Life

Casey Tygrett

*** $4.99 ***

“Our memories bind us not only to our personal past, but also to people, places, and experiences. Casey Tygrett’s As I Recall is an exquisite meditation on the role of memory in our formation. By teaching us to pay careful attention to our memories, Tygrett points us toward a richer and more connected life.”  – C. Christopher Smith, ERB Editor
