#1:

We Make the Road by Walking: A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation, and Activation

Brian McLaren

*** $2.99 ***

“This is one of the most remarkable documents in recent Christian writings…There is no evangelizing here, and no preaching, only a sinewy, but orderly and open, presentation of the faith that holds. The result is as startling as it is beautiful.” ―Phyllis Tickle, author, The Age of the Spirit

#2:

The Moment of Tenderness: Stories

Madeleine L’Engle

*** $1.99 ***

“Few fantasy writers had as indelible an influence on a certain tribe of bookish, introverted, curious children during the 20th century as the great L’Engle . . . [these stories] allow us a window into her process of writing fantasy, which she called the ‘one and only language in the world that cuts across all barriers of time, place, race, and culture.'” ―The Millions, Most Anticipated: The Great First-Half 2020 Book Preview

#3:

The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism

Katherine Stewart

*** $2.99 ***

“Ambitious . . . The book’s title is a pun, and it’s an apt one. What stands out the most from this gripping volume is how a reverence for authority―if the right person is in charge―is encoded into the various strands of this movement. . . . The Power Worshippers is required reading for anyone who wants to map the continuing erosion of our already fragile wall between church and state.” – The Washington Post

#4:

Bloodchild: And Other Stories

Octavia Butler

*** $2.99 ***

“The title story is justly famous . . . splendid pieces, set forth in calm, lucid prose with never a word wasted.” —Kirkus Reviews

#5:

On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society

Dave Grossman

*** $2.99 ***

“Drawing on interviews, published personal accounts and academic studies, Grossman investigates the psychology of killing in combat. Stressing that human beings have a powerful, innate resistance to the taking of life, he examines the techniques developed by the military to overcome that aversion. His provocative study focuses in particular on the Vietnam war, revealing how the American soldier was “enabled to kill to a far greater degree than any other soldier in history.” Grossman argues that the breakdown of American society, combined with the pervasive violence in the media and interactive video games, is conditioning our children to kill in a manner siimilar to the army’s conditioning of soldiers: “We are reaching that stage of desensitization at which the infliction of pain and suffering has become a source of entertainment: vicarious pleasure rather than revulsion. We are learning to kill, and we are learning to like it.” — Publishers Weekly
