#3:

Helena: A Novel

Evelyn Waugh

*** 99c ***

“[Helena] may be read on two levels of appreciation. As bright entertainment, or as deceptively profound commentary. On both levels it’s a superlatively well done book.”―Chicago Tribune


#4:

Blessed Are the Nones: Mixed-Faith Marriage and My Search for Spiritual Community

Stina Kielsmeier-Cook

*** $3.99 ***

“In our world in which change happens at breakneck speeds, Stina Kielsmeier-Cook’s memoir, Blessed Are the Nones, tells a timely story of learning to grieve and to make our peace with the people and institutions around us as they inevitably change. Her story reminds us that the blessed community that God is crafting on earth is a diverse one, and she paints for us a compelling picture of belonging to one another without uniformity of thought or belief.”
-C. Christopher Smith, ERB Editor



#5:

“Here Are Your Gods”: Faithful Discipleship in Idolatrous Times

Christopher Wright

*** $4.99 ***

“Wright’s careful dive into Scripture on the meaning of idolatry packs a punch for our times―an important reminder that idols, including political idols, are false gods that we create in our image, capable of great harm and destruction but ultimately ciphers within the true created order.” -John Inazu
