#1:

Sabbath: The Ancient Practices

Dan Allender

*** $2.99 ***

“In this reflection on the many faces of the Fourth Commandment, Allender (The Healing Path) tries to reinvigorate the Judeo-Christian idea of the Sabbath as a time of joy, celebration and holiness rather than a time for sporting events and grocery shopping. The author, who is president of Mars Hill Graduate School, urges his readers to go play in the fields of God. The book, part of the Ancient Practices series, is founded on three central ideas. The Sabbath is a commandment, not an option. It is not a minivacation but a day of delight. It is also a time for feasting, a remembrance of Eden and an anticipation of eternal life. Allender liberally sprinkles his work with personal anecdotes as he proposes a Sabbath theology that includes time, sensual glory, feasting, ritual, abundance, play and justice.”
–Publishers Weekly

#2:

A Month of Sundays: Thirty-One Days of Wrestling with Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John

Eugene Peterson

*** $4.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and get
the Audiobook for only $7.49!!!

From the translator of The Message, thirty-one ruminations drawn from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Eugene Peterson was quite concerned about the language we use between Sundays. He strived for a continuity of language between the words we use in Bible studies and the words we use when we are out hiking, at work, or eating dinner with family. He illustrated this passion in his writings and weekly sermons. A Month of Sundays is a devotional collection featuring excerpts of Eugene’s Sunday sermons arranged into thoughtful readings for every day of the month, drawn from the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.


The four gospels give us snapshots of the earthly life and ministry of Jesus. Dig deep into Eugene Peterson’s thoughts regarding select passages, and discover clarity, insight, and wisdom in his distinctive style of earthy spirituality.

#3:

Joy: Poet, Seeker, and the Woman Who Captivated C.S. Lewis

Abigail Santamaria

*** $4.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and get
the Audiobook for only $7.49!!!

Out of a deep friendship grounded in faith, poetry, and a passion for writing grew a timeless love story, and an unforgettable marriage of equals—one that would be immortalized in the film Shadowlands and Lewis’s memoir, A Grief Observed. Finally, Joy Davidman is brought out of her husband’s shadow to secure a place in literary history that is both a long-time coming and well-deserved.

“Plumbing the depths of unpublished documents, Santamaria reveals the vision and writing of a young woman whose coming of age in the turbulent thirties is both distinctive and emblematic of her time”
-Susan Hertog, author of Anne Morrow Lindbergh: Her Life

#4:

The Vandana Shiva Reader (Culture of the Land Series)

Vandana Shiva

*** $ 2.99 ***

“The Vandana Shiva Reader provides an important East-West agrarian bridge connecting two of the world’s great democracies and their struggles with industrial agriculture as it drives out sustainable alternatives, destroying both ecosystems and human communities along the way. To read Dr. Shiva’s work is to feel the power of a fertile theoretical mind engaged in fierce and inspirational acts of resistance. Hers is a unique voice.”
―Bill Vitek, coeditor of The Virtues of Ignorance: Complexity, Sustainability, and the Limits of Knowledge

#5:

From the Farm to the Table: What All Americans Need to Know about Agriculture (Culture of the Land Series)

Gary Holthaus

*** $2.99 ***


“Tells the story of modern agriculture through engaging interviews with men and women who make a living farming in southeastern Minnesota. In a tone reminiscent of Wendell Berry’s A Place on Earth, he examines the far-reaching effects of genetically modified organisms, free-trade agreements that nurture ‘transnational corporate profit,’ dependence on fossil fuel-derived chemicals, and the toll all this has taken on the land and farmers.” —Library Journal
