#1:

A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in an Instant Society

Eugene Peterson

*** $2.99 ***

“There is a clean, bright rigor to honest life before God. Burnishing the language of the Psalms, Eugene Peterson makes that life sing like a taut wire. A long obedience is the only path of discipleship to Jesus, and this is a message we desperately need to hear and implement today.”
-Dallas Willard



#2:

Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living
Krista Tippett,
Host of NPR’s On Being

*** $4.99 ***

“We need Krista Tippett’s voice and wisdom now more than ever. She has elevated the art of listening and the practice of being present in a way that is both accessible and soulful. Becoming Wise is what I’ve been waiting for from Krista – the opportunity to learn from her and her experiences. This is brilliant thinking, beautiful storytelling, and practical insight. You won’t forget what you read here.”  
-Brené Brown

 





#3:

Raids on the Unspeakable

Thomas Merton

*** $2.99 ***

In these brief, challenging pieces, Father Merton does not offer consolation or easy remedies. He looks candidly and without illusions at the world of his time. Though he sees dark horizons, his ultimate answer is one of Christian hope. To vary the perspective, he writes in many forms, using parable and myth, the essay and the meditation, satire and manifesto, prose poetry and even adaptations from a medieval Arab mystic (Ibn Abbad) to humanize and dramatic his philosophical themes.



#4:

Mudhouse Sabbath: An Invitation to a Life of Spiritual Discipline – Study Edition 

Lauren Winner

*** $3.99 ***

After her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Winner found that her life was indelibly marked by the rich traditions and spiritual practices of Judaism. She here presents eleven Jewish practices that can transform the way Christians view the world and God, including attentive eating, mourning, candle-lighting, and Sabbath-keeping.



#5:

How to Be Idle: A Loafer’s Manifesto

Tom Hodgkinson

*** $1.99 ***

From the founding editor of The Idler, the celebrated magazine about the freedom and fine art of doing nothing, comes not simply a book, but an antidote to our work-obsessed culture. In How to Be Idle, Tom Hodgkinson presents his learned yet whimsical argument for a new universal standard of living: being happy doing nothing.
