Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of Now

Walter Brueggemann

*** $2.99 ***

Brueggemann calls out our 24/7 society of consumption, a society in which we live to achieve, accomplish, perform, and possess. We want more, own more, use more, eat more, and drink more. Brueggemann shows readers how keeping the Sabbath allows us to break this restless cycle and focus on what is truly important: God, other people, all life. Perfect for groups or self-reflection!


Peaceful Neighbor: Discovering the Countercultural Mister Rogers

Michael Long

*** $2.99 ***

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

“We know Mr. Rogers was a gentle soul, but we did not know, until Michael Long’s Peaceful Neighbor, that Rogers’ nonviolence was shaped by his profound theological convictions. In this insightful book, Long makes clear that peace is a challenge to the imagination, and helps us imagine peace through his eloquent portrayal of Fred Rogers.”   Stanley Hauerwas



The Secret Lives of Introverts: Inside Our Hidden World

Jenn Granneman

*** $1.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and get

“Jenn Granneman is among the most sensitive and thoughtful introvert authors today . . . The Secret Lives of Introverts brings to life the experiences every introvert shares and helps us embrace our quiet nature in a very loud world.”
—Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts



American Prison: A Reporter’s Undercover Journey into the Business of Punishment

Shane Bauer

*** $1.99 ***

“American Prison is both the remarkable story of a journalist who spent four months working as a corrections officer, and a horrifying exposé of how prisoners were treated by a corporation that profited from them. . . . It’s Bauer’s investigative chops, though, that make American Prison so essential. He dedicated his time at Winn to talking with prisoners and guards, who were unaware that he was a journalist . . . Based on his first-hand experience and these conversations, he paints a damning picture of prisoner mistreatment and under-staffing at the prison, where morale among the incarcerated and the employees was poor. The stories he tells are deeply sad and consistently infuriating . . . An enraging, necessary look at the private prison system, and a convincing clarion call for prison reform.” —NPR



Pocket History of Theology

Roger Olson / Adam English

*** $2.99 ***

“This may be the most important book in the series for Christians to read and study. . . . [The authors] have written in such a practical manner, highlighting the major developments down through church history, that there is no excuse for Christians not taking the time to read and understand what they profess to believe when they confess their faith using creeds and confessions of our history.”  – Equip for Ministry
