Becoming Curious: The Spiritual Practice of Asking Questions

Casey Tygrett

*** $3.99 ***

“Questions are rarely allowed to linger in the air for too long before someone feels compelled to answer them. Rather than let our curiosity lead us more deeply into understanding God or one another, we rush to certainties and supposed sure things. In Becoming Curious, Casey Tygrett reclaims the transformational power of a curious question for the faithful, encouraging believers to do what may seem counterintuitive in our culture―to ask another question rather than find a quick answer. While reading this book, I had the distinct feeling that Casey crafted these words with great humility in his heart and a smile in his eyes―the kind that only comes from a man who has released his right to know everything and rests well in the presence of Jesus. Casey Tygrett is one of my new favorite authors and Becoming Curious is an anthem of hope for believers who have grown tired of well-oiled religion.” (Emily P. Freeman, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Simply Tuesday)


#4:

Scape: Poems

Luci Shaw

*** $2.99 ***

Luci Shaw notes in one of her new poems that, ‘without the impediment / of gravity the dancer / cannot dance.’ And it’s just that wise understanding of the weights and balances of life that her poems get so right. . . . Such abstractions live in the particulars of an egg’s brownness, a snail’s glistening trail, a sparrow’s ‘economical and precise’ pecking, and the taut feel of a trout on the line. Luci Shaw’s poems incarnate the ‘slow pleasure of being. –Robert Cording, author, Common Life

#5:

In God’s Holy Light: Wisdom from the Desert Monaastics

Joan Chittister

*** $1.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $7.499!!!

“Sister Joan embodies the best of the Benedictine way of life: Christ-centered, earthy, and unpretentious. She offers us the wisdom she has gleaned from her life so dedicated to Justice and Joy. Her grappling with these early Church desert dwellers are hope-filled and yet challenging. Sister Joan calls each of us to a spiritual maturity that will transform the world.” —Laura Swan, O.S.B., author, The Forgotten Desert Mothers and The Wisdom of the Beguines
