“[Du Mez’s] astonishing gifting was in the way she took 1000 puzzle pieces and fit them together. I don’t swallow books whole but the evidence for much of what she’s written is staring us in the face.”

Women and the Gender of God
*** $6.25 ***
“Peeler refutes a view that shouldn’t even need discussing because it is so absurd—that God is male. Readers might pick up this book because of the harmful effects of ‘masculine Christianity’ on the Christian faith. But what made this book a page-turner for me is the profound exposition of the story of Jesus, the perfect image of God, man from woman, a testimony to the beauty of God’s dual human creation—both men and women finding honor and dignity in Word made flesh. Peeler navigates a volatile topic with patience, meticulous research, wisdom, and grace.”
—- Nijay K. Gupta, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
City of God: Faith in the Streets
*** $1.99 ***
Miles, the founder and director of the Food Pantry and director of ministry at St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco, offers this heartfelt memoir as homage to her faith community. But it is also a testament to the concept of faith itself as Miles, an atheist when she first came to St. Gregory’s, accepts communion for the first time, ironically in the place with the lowest rates of church attendance of any major U.S. city. She began discovering faith in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill and Mission neighborhoods…she notes there is a growing network of unhoused congregations that meet outdoors to serve people living on the streets… An informative, luminous memoir of faith and community.
