Acts: A Theological Commentary on the Bible

Willie James Jennings

*** $3.99 ***

“A treat for the mind, the heart, and the flesh. This moving meditation on God’s ‘divine desire placed in us by the Spirit’ is a powerful theological commentary on how it is possible for us to break down our categories and barriers that separate us and journey, together, to the new, to our next. This is a book of hope and possibilities about a book of hope and possibilities . . . and this is good news.” —Emilie M. Townes


The Story of Christianity: A History of 2000 Years of the Christian Faith

David Bentley Hart

*** $1.99 ***

A theologian of exceptional quality – but also a brilliant stylist
― Dr. Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury

*** PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

Is Joseph–the deserted son of Jacob from the Old Testament–relevant in our modern age? For Madeleine L’Engle, the answer is a resounding yes; not solely because Joseph is an important historical character, but primarily because his experiences of disenfranchisement, tragedy, and profound betrayal resonate within our own society.



Imperfect Birds: A Novel

Ann Lamott

*** $4.99 ***

“Lamott intuitively taps into the teenage drug culture to create a vivid, unsettling portrait of a family in crisis. As she eschews the cunning one-liners and wry observations that had become her signature stock-in-trade, Lamott produces her most stylistically mature and thematically circumspect novel to date. ”   – BookList



First Corinthians: Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching

Richard Hays

*** $3.99 ***

Paul addresses issues in First Corinthians that aren’t always grounded in explicitly theological problems. Yet he frames them in theological terms and reflects on them in light of the gospel. Now Richard Hays discusses the letter’s major theological themes, as well as issues such as community formation and the rethinking of inherited sociocultural norms and practices, offering Paul as a model for ministry.
