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


#1:

Broken Signposts: How Christianity Makes Sense of the World

N.T. Wright

*** $2.99 ***

“A rich and encouraging book. With his great theological and interpretive erudition, Wright shows that our desire for goods like justice, love, and truth isn’t futile. Broken Signposts will deepen readers’ understanding of God’s kingship, the unity of Scripture, and the nature of Christian engagement in the life of the world.”
– James Davison Hunter


#2:

The Wild Birds: Six Stories of the Port William Membership

Wendell Berry

*** $1.99 ***

“Berry is a superb writer. His sense of what makes characters tick is extraordinary. His farmers love their land in a powerful bond that moves them forward, generation after generation, with a sense of fulfillments that seems unique in this day of disaffected heroes and writers who turn to black humor when they must deal with eternal verities . . . Short stories don’t get any better than these.” —People

#3:

Men Explain Things to Me

Rebecca Solnit

*** $1.99 ***


“Where opponents would argue that feminism is humorless and superfluous, Men Explain Things to Me is a compelling argument for the movement’s necessary presence in contemporary society. It approaches the subject with candor and openness, furthering the conversation and opening a new Pandora’s box that’s apt to change the way we talk about women’s rights.” —Shelf Awareness


#4:

How Music Works

David Byrne

*** $2.99 ***

How Music Works is David Byrne’s incisive and enthusiastic look at the musical art form, from its very inceptions to the influences that shape it, whether acoustical, economic, social or technological. Utilizing his incomparable career and inspired collaborations with Talking Heads, Brian Eno, and many others, Byrne taps deeply into his lifetime of knowledge to explore the panoptic elements of music, how it shapes the human experience, and reveals the impetus behind how we create, consume, distribute, and enjoy the songs, symphonies, and rhythms that provide the backbeat of life. Byrne’s magnum opus uncovers ever-new and thrilling realizations about the redemptive liberation that music brings us all.


#5:

Taft: A Novel

Ann Patchett

*** $1.99 ***

An ex-jazz drummer wants nothing more than to be a good father in this moving family novel by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Dutch House.
