Each week, we carefully curate a handful of books for church leaders that orient us toward the health and the flourishing of our congregations.


N.T. Wright

*** $5.99 ***

“Pauline Perspectives gathers into one convenient place the multitudinous essays and lectures on Paul and his thought world that have come forth from the prolific pen of N. T. Wright during the course of the last 35 years. Here you can see the development of seminal ideas, major themes, and the relentless pursuit of understanding important trajectories in Paul’s thought, ranging from justification to the righteousness of God to atonement to much more. Reading a book like this is like going to a great feast put on by a master chef and discovering there were no ephemeral starters but all meat, and none of it half-baked either, but well worth chewing over and always nourishing. Bon appetit!” –Ben Witherington III


Owls and Other Fantasies: Poems and Essays

Mary Oliver

*** $1.99 ***

Within these pages you will find hawks, hummingbirds, and herons; kingfishers, catbirds, and crows; swans, swallows and, of course, the snowy owl, among a dozen others-including ten poems that have never before been collected. She adds two beautifully crafted essays, “Owls,” selected for the Best American Essays series, and “Bird,” a new essay that will surely take its place among the classics of the genre.

Truth-Telling as Subversive Obedience

Walter Brueggemann

*** $2.99 ***

“The provocative essays in this volume are yet another reminder that no one prods the consciences of preachers more effectively, discomfortingly, and profoundly than Walter Brueggemann. With imagination, resolve, and a comprehensive grasp of the issues, Brueggemann summons us once again to have the courage to speak ‘truth that subverts our best self-deceiving certitudes.'” -Thomas G. Long


If You Are the Son of God: The Suffering and Temptations of Jesus

Jacques Ellul

*** $2.99 ***

“If You Are the Son of God is Jacques Ellul at his provocative best. By emphasizing the depth of Jesus’s suffering and temptation, Ellul demands that we reckon with the humanity of a savior who overcame not weakness, but power, so that by faith ‘man might become fully man, a real creature,’ free to love both God and neighbor.” – Noah Toly


Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer

Barbara Ehrenreich

*** $2.99 ***

“This book is joyous. It is neither anti-medicine nor anti-prevention; it is pro-balance, pro-scepticism and pro-perspective. Paradoxically, Natural Causes is about hope. If you are struggling with choices that weigh hope in potential medical advances that damage quality of life against non-treatment and the acceptance of a terminal diagnosis, this may not offer much comfort, but…as with so many of Ehrenreich’s books, NATURAL CAUSES is a much-needed tonic.” ―The Guardian
