Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work or Watch or Weep
Tish Harrison Warren
*** $2.39 ***
*** Selected as one of our Best Books of 2021!
“Prayer in the Night is another radiant example of wisdom formed in the crucible of suffering. As a priest who finds she can’t pray, Tish Harrison Warren finds God in our harrowing vulnerability―and stubbornly holds to believing that God remains good even when life is not. This is a book I’ll turn to again and again when life is upended. It’s a book I will put into the hands of suffering friends. Prayer in the Night is a book that sings, even as it weeps.”
— Jen Pollock Michel, author of Surprised by Paradox
Deacon King Kong: A Novel
*** $2.99 ***
*** Selected as our Best Novel of 2020!
“A mystery story, a crime novel, an urban farce, a sociological portrait of late-1960s Brooklyn: McBride’s novel contains multitudes… He conducts his antic symphony with deep feeling, never losing sight of the suffering and inequity within the merriment.”
—The New York Times, Top 10 Books of 2020
Keeping the Sabbath Wholly: Ceasing, Resting, Embracing, Feasting
*** $3.99 ***
“Drawing deeply both from Scripture and from Jewish practices, [Dawn] shares ideas for various ways of keeping the Sabbath: by ceasing (from striving, productivity, anxiety); by resting (physically, emotionally, intellectually); by embracing (intentionality, Christian values); and by feasting (on the eternal, with affection). A thoughtful, prayerful book that opens new vistas on the underlying spirituality of what is too often understood in terms of shallow conventionality alone.”
– Library Journal
Her Gates Will Never Be Shut: Hope, Hell, and the New Jerusalem
*** $2.99 ***
“Who are the damned? Who are the saved? The questions have a way of provoking controversy, often quite heated. Brad Jersak, self-identified as an evangelical who accepts the Biblical witness as authoritative, turns the controversy into a conversation, a quiet conversation. He listens. He listens to opposing voices. He listens to Scripture as God’s last word on the subject. He listens to the scholars and theologians. Out of the listening something like a ‘humility of hope’ (Jersak’s phrase) begins to replace dogmatisms and we find ourselves part of a conversation with Christian brothers and sisters who are seriously praying for the world’s salvation.”
–Eugene H. Peterson
A Conservationist Manifesto
Scott Russell Sanders
*** $2.99 ***
“Sanders’s A Conservationist Manifesto is a book to be savored — for its language, its stories, its sense of place, and for how it reminds us of the profound relationships with nature and each other that can inspire us to change how we live on this planet…. A must read for all of us who are wrestling with the future of conservation and searching for how to express the values that will take us to a greener and more sustainable future” — Will Rogers, President, The Trust for Public Land
