( Eugene Peterson, Wendell Berry, Shannan Martin, Alan Noble, MORE )

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


Subversive Spirituality

Eugene Peterson

*** $3.99 ***

“A quiet, unassuming man, Peterson defies the typical definition of pastor and teacher. He is indeed subversive, quietly feeding his flock what they really need, not what they think they want. This book continues in that tradition. Along the way readers will be blessed with profound writing, and definitions of what it truly means to live an examined, Christ-like life.”
—ASPIRE magazine


The World-Ending Fire:
The Essential Wendell Berry

*** $3.99 ***

“[Berry] speaks out powerfully and poignantly on behalf of family farmers, their land, and their small towns. His spiritual vision of life is informed by a deep love of nature, a profound regard for the details of place, a respect for small-scale economies, and an advocacy of wise stewardship of the earth. Paul Kingsnorth chose the 31 essays for this handsome collection as ample evidence of Berry’s inspiring defense of character qualities like rugged individualism, diligence, loyalty, and reverence for nature.”

Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted

Shannan Martin

*** $2.99 ***

“Be prepared, as you read Falling Free to have your atrophied, tired notion of God propelled into a new and spacious place. With humor, grace, and not a little jostling of your comfort zone, Shannan Martin will introduce you to the mess at the margins.”
Gregory Boyle


Disruptive Witness:
Speaking Truth in a Distracted Age

Alan Noble

*** $3.99 ***

“Alan Noble has written a concise and timely meditation on the conditions under which Christian witness may be pursued in our age and place. This book is real food for real thought.”
– Alan Jacobs


The Power of Proximity: Moving Beyond Awareness to Action 

Michelle Warren

*** $4.99 ***

“In Jesus, God leaves all the comforts of heaven, puts on skin, and moves into a broken world-born a refugee, wandering as a homeless rabbi, executed as a criminal. In this book, Michelle Warren dares us to follow the suffering Christ by leaning into the suffering of our world. She calls us not to conform to the patterns of this world, which might otherwise convince us to move out of Jesus’ neighborhood.”
– Shane Claiborne
