#1:

Turn My Mourning Into Dancing: Finding Hope in Hard Times

Henri Nouwen

*** $2.99 ***

Henri Nouwen was born in Holland in 1932 and ordained a Catholic priest in 1957. He obtained his doctorandus in psychology from Nijmegen University in The Netherlands and taught at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard. He experienced the monastic life with Trappist monks at the Abbey of the Genesee, lived among the poor in Latin America with the Maryknoll missioners, and was interested and active in numerous causes related to social justice. After a lifetime of seeking, Henri Nouwen finally found his home in Canada, as pastor of L’Arche Daybreak – where people with intellectual disabilities and their caregivers live together in community.

Certain Women: A Novel

Madeleine L’Engle

*** $2.99 ***


“In Certain Women , terminally ill David Wheaton, a prominent and much-married American actor, obsessively recalls an unfinished play about King David, a role he coveted. L’Engle explores Christian faith, love, and the nature of God by framing the delayed-maturation story of Emma, Wheaton’s daughter… L’Engle describes complex truths very simply, pointing out, for instance, that “Life hurts” and that if there’s “no agony, there’s no joy.” Because she also details the emotional cost of discovering and accepting such concepts, many readers will find these observations memorable rather than simplistic.”
– Jane S. Bakerman, Indiana State Univ., Terre Haute

#3:

A Conservationist Manifesto

Scott Russell Sanders

*** $2.99 ***

“In these predictable but frequently insightful essays, Sanders muses on how to care for the Earth, local communities and future generations. He condemns the mainstream American way of life as an infantile dream of endless consumption, endless novelty, and endless play… Sanders offers a 40-point Conservationist Manifesto, which, in its thoroughness, thoughtfulness and inclusion of environmental justice issues would serve the environmentalist community well. But the most original and intriguing ideas in this book are Sanders’s thoughts about words and their meanings, as when he suggests that for a season we make explicit the meaning of consumers by replacing it with devourers, or that wilderness is a Sabbath of space rather than time, and we need both kinds of Sabbath because Earth could use a respite from our demands.”

#4:

Having Nothing, Possessing Everything

Michael Mather

*** $2.51 ***

“What does it look like to live as if the gospel were true? This animating question has inspired and driven the remarkable ministries of the two urban congregations that Mike Mather has served during his three decades of pastoral ministry. He tells powerful, life-changing stories about seeing abundance where no one expects it and finding treasures in people and neighborhoods that most of us typically dismiss out of hand. Having Nothing, Possessing Everything is powerful and true at every level.”
— Craig Dykstra, Duke Divinity School

#5:

The Practice of Finding: How Gratitude Leads the Way to Enough

Holly Whitcomb

*** $2.51 ***

“Holly Whitcomb’s book has enticed me to recognize and savor the plenitude in my life. Her wise reflections in The Practice of Finding provide soothing balm for both mind and heart. This is a great resource for every reader who has known suffering and yearns for a restoration of hope.”
— Joyce Rupp, author of Anchors for the Soul
