Truth-Telling as Subversive Obedience

Walter Brueggemann

*** $2.99 ***

Walter Brueggemann has inspired more pastors and congregations than anyone else of our generation. And he continues this good work in a compelling collection of essays and sermons rooted deeply in the text and in prophetic imagination. Truth-Telling as Subversive Obedience trades in a sort of primal candor that dares to confront our most cherished conventions. Perhaps even more strikingly, this little book creates space for the loving embrace of God. Extraordinary stuff that we have come to depend on!” -Louis Stulman


Embracing the Transformation

Walter Brueggemann

*** $2.99 ***

Richly informed by Scripture, this superb book is a must-read for preachers and, indeed, for laity who love the Word. Brueggemann’s theological interpretation of the biblical text strikes the mind and heart and calls out the church as an alternative community to embrace the work of transformation God is doing in the world. Brueggemann’s books always inform and inspire, but as I read this extraordinary text, I found myself over and over again giving thanks to God. –Tex Sample

Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope

Esau McCaulley

*** $3.99 ***

“What does the Bible have to say to Black Christians seeking justice? By looking at well-known, overlooked, underinterpreted, and misinterpreted texts, Esau McCaulley tells us that a faithful reading of Scripture as the Word of God summons Black Christians (and others) to a cluster of practices. These include naming and protesting evil, expressing anger, and pursuing freedom and justice, but also promoting reconciliation, practicing forgiveness, and living in hope―all as aspects of proclaiming the gospel of the God revealed in Jesus. An important book.” — Michael J. Gorman


Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions

Johann Hari

*** $3.99 ***

“Wise, probing, and deeply generous Hari has produced a book packed with explosive revelations about our epidemic of despair. I am utterly convinced that the more people read this book, the better off the world will be.” ―Naomi Klein


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

Holly Whitcomb

*** $2.99 ***

“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.” – Sr. Joyce Rupp
