Brad Gooch

Bargain Theology Books



Slow Church: Cultivating Community in the Patient Way of Jesus

C. Christopher Smith / John Pattison

*** $3.99 ***

“Slow Church is a manifesto and handbook rolled into one. Unlike most manifestos, it is beautifully written, blending historical analysis, personal narrative, and scriptural exegesis into prose that is languid, incisive, and eloquent. It reads like what it is: the long, patient fruit of two men deeply rooted in a particular place, among neighbors they know, love, and serve.” – Christianity Today

*** The Slow Church Study Guide is also on sale for $3.99!!!


The David Foster Wallace Reader

*** $2.99 ***

“A reminder of how good Wallace could be, whether he was writing about Kafka or the Illinois State Fair, whether he was making stuff up or trying to see things as they actually are.”―Alexander Nazaryan, Newsweek


Living with a Wild God: A Nonbeliever’s Search for the Truth about Everything

Barbara Ehrenreich

*** $1.99 ***

“A smart and enjoyable read… Ehrenreich maintains a grip on a sensible skepticism about religious matters – and a positive hostility toward the idea of unthinking faith – while avoiding the narrow-minded excesses that more zealous atheists sometimes fall victim to.”―The Chicago Tribune
