Each week, we carefully curate a handful of books for church leaders that orient us toward the health and the flourishing of our congregations.



#1:   

God, Medicine, and Suffering

Stanley Hauerwas

*** $2.20 ***

Why does a good and all-powerful God allow us to experience pain and suffering? According to Stanley Hauerwas, asking this question is a theological mistake. Drawing heavily on stories of ill and dying children to illustrate and clarify his discussion of theological-philosophical issues, Hauerwas explores why we so fervently seek explanations for suffering and evil, and he shows how modern medicine has become a god to which we look (in vain) for deliverance from the evils of disease and mortality.



#2:

Keeping the Sabbath Wholly: Ceasing, Resting, Embracing, Feasting

Marva Dawn

*** $4.20 ***

Combining sound biblical theology and research into Jewish traditions with many practical suggestions, Keeping the Sabbath Wholly offers a healthy balance between head and heart: the book shows how theological insights can undergird daily life and practice, and it gives the reader both motivation and methods for enjoying a special holy day.

Proper Confidence: Faith, Doubt, and Certainty in Christian Discipleship

Lesslie Newbigin

*** $3.00 ***

Looking to end the divisive conflict that has raged between Christians who attack each other either as “liberals” or as “fundamentalists,” Newbigin here gives a historical account of the roots of this conflict in order to begin laying the foundation for a middle ground that will benefit the Christian faith as a whole. What results is a perspective that allows Christians to confidently affirm the gospel as public truth in our pluralistic world.
