#1:

Ethics

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

*** $2.99 ***

 
From one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century, Ethics is the seminal reinterpretation of the role of Christianity in the modern, secularized world.

The Christian does not live in a vacuum, says the author, but in a world of government, politics, labor, and marriage. Hence, Christian ethics cannot exist in a vacuum; what the Christian needs, claims Dietrich Bonhoeffer, is concrete instruction in a concrete situation. Although the author died before completing his work, this book is recognized as a major contribution to Christian ethics.

A Field Guide to Getting Lost

*** $1.99 ***

*** PLUS, buy the ebook, and
get the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

 
“An intriguing amalgam of personal memoir, philosophical speculation, natural lore, cultural history, and art criticism.” —Los Angeles Times

From the award-winning author of Orwell’s Roses, a stimulating exploration of wandering, being lost, and the uses of the unknown


Written as a series of autobiographical essays, A Field Guide to Getting Lost draws on emblematic moments and relationships in Rebecca Solnit’s life to explore issues of uncertainty, trust, loss, memory, desire, and place. Solnit is interested in the stories we use to navigate our way through the world, and the places we traverse, from wilderness to cities, in finding ourselves, or losing ourselves. While deeply personal, her own stories link up to larger stories, from captivity narratives of early Americans to the use of the color blue in Renaissance painting, not to mention encounters with tortoises, monks, punk rockers, mountains, deserts, and the movie Vertigo. The result is a distinctive, stimulating voyage of discovery.

On Writing (and Writers): A Miscellany of Advice and Opinions

C.S. Lewis

*** $2.99 ***

 
“While writing about writing is often deadly, Lewis is as delightful as he is wise.” —The New York Times

A definitive collection of wisdom on every style of writing and a celebration of the transformative power of the written word from one of the most influential writers and thinkers of the modern age, C. S. Lewis, the beloved author of the Chronicles of Narnia series, Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, and other revered classics.


Featuring over one hundred excerpts—some short and some essay length—drawn from his wide body of letters, books, and essays, On Writing (and Writers) brings together C. S. Lewis’s reflections on the power, importance, and joy of a life dedicated to writing.
 

#4:

Insurrection: To Believe Is Human; To Doubt, Divine

Peter Rollins

*** $2.99 ***

*** PLUS, buy the ebook, and
get the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

 
“What Pete does in this book is take you to the edge of a cliff where you can see how high you are and how far you would fall if you lost your footing. And just when most writers would kindly pull you back from edge, he pushes you off, and you find yourself without any solid footing, disoriented, and in a bit of a panic… until you realize that your fall is in fact, a form of flying. And it’s thrilling.”
–Rob Bell, author of Love Wins and Velvet Elvis

“While others labor to save the Church as they know it, Peter Rollins takes an ax to the roots of the tree. Those who have enjoyed its shade will want to stop him, but his strokes are so clean and true that his motive soon becomes clear: this man trusts the way of death and resurrection so much that he has become fearless of religion.”
–Barbara Brown Taylor, author of Leaving Church and An Altar in the World


“What does it mean when the Son of God cries out, ‘My God, My God, why have you forsaken me’? Brilliantly, candidly, and faithfully, Rollins wrestles here with that question. You may not agree with his answers and conclusions, but you owe it to yourself and to the Church at large to read what he says.” –Phyllis Tickle, author, The Great Emergence

#5:

Practicing Lament

Rebekah Eklund

*** $2.99 ***

 
In a faith focused on resurrection hope, patient endurance, and victory in Christ, is there any room for pain, doubt, and anger? In Scripture, lament is the prayer that makes that room. Not only is lament one of the most common forms of prayer in the Old Testament, it’s also woven deeply into the fabric of the New Testament and the Christian way. Lament is the cry for all those who ache over the way things are but aren’t content to let them stay that way. It’s the prayer for all the ways that the kingdom has not yet come, in the hope that God’s justice and peace will prevail–someday.
