Scot McKnight

the audiobook for only $1.98!!!

 
“When it comes to the pastorate, there is no more scholarly and trusted voice for me than Scot McKnight. With the intellect of a man devoted to theology, with a heart shaped by Christ’s love, and with a lifetime of insight, Scot reclaims the true nature of what it means to shepherd God’s people. Rather than chasing the intoxicating fruit of larger churches, book deals, and conference speaking, Scot rightly helps those in ministry to return to ministry in the light of the apostle Paul. This is a needed book in a time when more and more of us know less and less of what it is to center on Christ in a pastorate increasingly shaped by business-style ‘leadership.’”
–Sean Palmer, author of Unarmed Empire: In Search of Beloved Community, preaching coach, and teaching pastor at Ecclesia Houston

#2:

Disobedient Women: How a Small Group of Faithful Women Exposed Abuse, Brought Down Powerful Pastors, and Ignited an Evangelical Reckoning

Sarah Stankorb

*** $3.99 ***

 
“Journalist Stankorb debuts with an intimate and engrossing look at how a small number of evangelical women have engaged in an “Online battle” with the American evangelical church, challenging the rigid gender roles favored by ultraconservative church leaders… Sheds fascinating light on the process of deprogramming from extremist religion. Weaving in her own faith journey as the child of an abusive alcoholic father, Stankorb delivers a compassionate portrait of pain and perseverance.”
–Publishers Weekly (starred review)


“A book full of devastating honesty, active empathy, and a desire to bring what is holy and abject to light at the same time… As a seasoned reporter, she writes with candor and grace. Stankorb’s is a mature voice, but one that hasn’t lost its sense of urgency or care. The result is a work that will open readers’ eyes to the devastating effects such abuse can have on women, and hope that the more things change . . . the more they might be different next time.”
–Brad Onishi, author of Preparing for War and co-host of Straight White American Jesus

#3:

The Idolatry of God: Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction

Peter Rollins

*** $2.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

 
“This full-scale repurposing of Christian vocabulary and endorsement of theological mystery is often deeply rewarding.”
–Publisher’s Weekly


“Caveat emptor. Let the reader, the Christian, the skeptic beware, for with The Idolatry of God, Peter Rollins has taken his theological program of turning everything we believe upside down to the next level. Not content to simply subvert how we believe, Rollins now turns his attention to what we believe. If you don’t want your faith challenged, don’t read this book.”
–Tony Jones, author of A Better Atonement

 

#4:

Saint Francis

Nikos Kazantzakis

*** $1.99 ***

 
Like The Last Temptation of Christ, Saint Francis is a fictionalized biography of a widely venerated Christian figure: Francis of Assisi, whose renunciation of his young man’s life of leisure and founding of a religious order dedicated to living in poverty and sharing the Gospels with all living things profoundly influence the ways in which Christians the world over worship and give service to their god even today. Recounted in Nikos Kazantzakis’s striking prose through the eyes of the saint’s brother, Leo, the life of Saint Francis shines in these pages as a heroic example of inspirational leadership and boundless love for God and all His creatures.

#5:

Women Talking: A Novel

Miriam Toews

*** $2.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $7.49!!!

 
“Scorching . . . a wry, freewheeling novel of ideas that touches on the nature of evil, questions of free will, collective responsibility, cultural determinism, and, above all, forgiveness.” -New York Times Book Review, Editors’ Choice

“Marsh successfully combines the wisdom of spiritual masters with her own down-to-earth insights to provide an easily accessible toolkit for those who are seeking an antidote to the stress and chaos of the modern world.”
–Sister Monica Clare, CSJB
