A Month of Sundays: Thirty-One Days of Wrestling with Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John

Eugene Peterson

*** $4.99 ***

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

 
From the translator of The Message, thirty-one ruminations drawn from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Eugene Peterson was quite concerned about the language we use between Sundays. He strived for a continuity of language between the words we use in Bible studies and the words we use when we are out hiking, at work, or eating dinner with family. He illustrated this passion in his writings and weekly sermons. A Month of Sundays is a devotional collection featuring excerpts of Eugene’s Sunday sermons arranged into thoughtful readings for every day of the month, drawn from the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

The four gospels give us snapshots of the earthly life and ministry of Jesus. Dig deep into Eugene Peterson’s thoughts regarding select passages, and discover clarity, insight, and wisdom in his distinctive style of earthy spirituality.

Living by Fiction

Annie Dillard

*** $1.99 ***

 
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Dillard’s classic work of literary criticism

Living by Fiction is written for—and dedicated to—people who love literature. Dealing with writers such as Nabokov, Barth, Coover, Pynchon, Borges, García Márquez, Beckett, and Calvino, Annie Dillard shows how contemporary fiction works and why traditional fiction will always move us. Like Joyce Cary’s Art and Reality, this is a book by a writer on the issues raised by the art of literature. Readers of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Holy the Firm will recognize Dillard’s vivid writing, her humor, and the lively way she tackles the urgent questions of meaning in experience itself.

“Everyone who timidly, bombastically, reverently, scholastically–even fraudulently–essays to ‘live the life of the mind’ should read this book. It’s elegant and classy, like caviar and champagne, and like these two items, it’s over much too soon.” — Los Angeles Times

To Will & To Do: An Introduction to Christian Ethics, Volume I

Jacques Ellul

*** $2.99 ***

VOLUME 2 of this work is also on sale for Kindle – $2.99!
 
“This is a landmark publication. This would be true if only for the vast improvement on a fifty-year-old translation and new scholarly apparatus. But the real buzz is that this first volume will be followed by a previously unavailable second volume of the work that Ellul himself understood as his theological masterwork. Jake Rollison masterfully explains why this book offers Christians today a wholly new, and genuinely exciting, Jacques Ellul.”
–Brian Brock, University of Aberdeen

 

#4:

The Narnian: The Life and Imagination of C. S. Lewis

Alan Jacobs

*** $2.99 ***

 
“Jacobs, a Wheaton College literature professor, [writes] not in typical chronological style, but according to themes important in Lewis’s life. So, in the chapter entitled “red beef and strong beer” (a Lewis quote about what was satisfying and nourishing to him), we encounter the strong male mentors from his young adult years. Jacobs is obviously taken with early 20th-century English literature and history, and it shows in his writing, which is accessible and unobtrusively documented… Also, to fully appreciate this book, one needs to have read not just the Narnia series but Lewis’s writings on Christian apologetics, as Jacobs is intent on making connections between the two genres… [This] substantive book is for hard-core Lewis lovers eager to soak up historical minutiae and savor salient Lewis quotes for years to come.”
— Publishers Weekly

#5:

“Marsh successfully combines the wisdom of spiritual masters with her own down-to-earth insights to provide an easily accessible toolkit for those who are seeking an antidote to the stress and chaos of the modern world.”
–Sister Monica Clare, CSJB
