Using her own translations, Gafney offers a midrashic interpretation of the biblical text that is rooted in the African American preaching tradition to tell the stories of a variety of female characters, many of whom are often overlooked and nameless. This unique and imaginative work is grounded in serious scholarship and will expand conversations about feminist and womanist biblical interpretation.

#2:

How to Think: A Survival Guide for a World at Odds

Alan Jacobs

*** $2.99 ***

“Refreshing and hopeful, even as it points out some of our worst habits of ‘not thinking’—our tendency toward snap judgment, for instance, or our creation of and animosity toward ‘Repugnant Cultural Others.’ . . . Whatever your positions, this book is a guide in how you should hold those positions, and how you should regard and interact with those of a fundamentally different mind.”
—The Paris Review

Joy: Poet, Seeker, and the Woman Who Captivated C. S. Lewis

Abigail Santamaria

*** $3.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and
get the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

 
“Joy Davidman was manipulative, endearing, brilliant, and obsessive—and C. S. Lewis, one of the most influential and beloved spiritual writers of the twentieth century, fell in love with all of it. A complicated woman for our time, Davidman’s search for meaning and her final arrival at love will resonate deeply long after the reader has closed Santamaria’s masterful biography.”
— Kate Buford, author of Native American Son: The Life and Sporting Legend of Jim Thorpe

#4:

Abraham Joshua Heschel: The Call of Transcendence

Shai Held

*** $2.99 ***

 
Abraham Joshua Heschel: The Call of Transcendence is one of the most important works of scholarship on Heschel, resulting from serious, comprehensive, and sensitive reading. Unlike many Heschel scholars, Held has clearly immersed himself in every word of his works. At the same time, his own book is written in language that makes it quite readable. . . . One of the great contributions of Held’s work is his summary and critique of the study of Heschel.
― Tikkun

#5:

The Insistence of God: A Theology of Perhaps

John Caputo

*** $2.99 ***

For those allergic to theological certainty―whether of God’s existence or of God’s death―Caputo delivers storm-fresh relief: the theopoetics of God’s insistence.
— Catherine Keller
