#1:

The Powers That Be: Theology for a New Millennium

Walter Wink

*** $4.99 ***

“Perhaps we are not accustomed to thinking of the Pentagon, or the Chrysler Corporation, or the Mafia as having a spirituality, but they do,” writes Walter Wink. In The Powers That Be: Theology for a New Millennium, Wink returns to the ancient view of a world filled with angels and demons, powers and principalities, and reinterprets these notions for contemporary people. Wink’s book is a challenge for Christians to wake up and become dangerously different, by objecting to the Darwinian games of domination that prevail in many of our governments, corporations, and churches. The book also offers stunningly gracious comfort, by showing that we are all caught up in this game, that the game is even a part of our gift, and that as long as we live in the world, not a single one of us can be pure, but we’re called, all of us, to be holy.”
–Michael Joseph Gross

 


#2:

Long Life: Essays and Other Writings

Mary Oliver

*** $1.99 ***

 
“Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for her poetry, Oliver also writes exquisitely lucid prose. Here, in her most generously personal essays to date, she articulates the beliefs, observations, and inspirations that feed her poetry as she contemplates the majestic beauty of the earth and its splendid creatures, including humankind. Oliver ponders death and remembrance, marvels over the unexpected boon of an old town dump, [and] considers the indelible impression left by childhood revelations of the power and mystery of nature…”
–Donna Seaman

 

#3:

A Burning in My Bones: The Authorized Biography of Eugene H. Peterson

Winn Collier

*** $4.99 ***

“Winn Collier’s skilled storytelling weaves the threads of Eugene’s life into something fitting, like a prayer shawl he wore in his study every day.”
— Luci Shaw, author of The Generosity poems

#4:

Music at Midnight: The Life and Poetry of George Herbert

John Drury

*** $ 3.99 ***

 
“Readers who are tempted into the book by its focus on the life will finish with something far richer than more conventional biographies offer. . . . It is hard to imagine a better book for anyone, general reader or seventeenth-century aficionado or teacher or student, newly embarking on Herbert.”
― Guardian

 
 

#5:

Zen in the Art of Writing

Ray Bradbury

*** $3.99 ***

 
Part memoir, part philosophical guide, the essays in this book teach the joy of writing. Rather than focusing on the mechanics of putting words together, Bradbury’s zen is found in the celebration of storytelling that drove him to write every day. Bringing together eleven essays and a series of poems written with his own unique style and fervor, Zen in the Art of Writing is a must read for all prospective writers and Bradbury fans.
