#3:

What’s in a Phrase?: Pausing Where Scripture Gives You Pause

Marilyn Chandler McEntyre

*** $4.99 ***

“With her profound summonings, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre recovers for many contemporary readers an ancient practice that is reminiscent of rabbinic attention to the dark sayings of Scripture, those compelling, curious, often challenging passages that would nudge us into seeing more, would have us glimpse the inexhaustibility of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being, even the inexhaustibility of His Word.” – Scott Cairns



#4:

Water, Wind, Earth, and Fire: The Christian Practice of Praying with the Elements

Christine Paintner

*** 99c ***

“Amid the current profusion of spirituality-and-nature books, Water, Wind, Earth, and Fire is a rare treasure: a deeply Christian book that also draws us more deeply into contemplation of and relationship with nature. This fine work of spiritual wisdom and guidance offers to both individuals and groups a companion for all seasons. It can soothe at night, enliven in the morning, kindle the human spirit during the day, and at all times serve as a reminder of the abiding presence of the Creator Spirit, which is the spirit of Christ on earth and among us.” –Jane Redmont



#5:

An On-Going Imagination: A Conversation about Scripture, Faith, and the Thickness of Relationship/span>

Walter Brueggemann and Clover Reuter Beal

*** $2.99 ***

Intimate, provocative, and challenging, An On-Going Imagination offers an enlightening introduction to Brueggemann’s work for readers who want to learn more and a way back into the Bible for people who feel alienated from it by those on the right and the left who claim to have it all figured out.
