Books and Magazines I Dig
Nadia Bolz-Weber: Salvation on the Small Screen? 24 Hours of Christian Television
This is my book. It will change your life. Ok, not really.
Kester Brewin: Signs of Emergence
This book is tremendous. Drawing on his background as a math teacher, Brewin explores why the church is where it is and why it is to change…using complexity theory. This is a must read.
Edward and Lorna Mornin: Saints: A Visual Guide
This is a gorgeous handbook of the saints.
Peter Rollins: How (Not) to Speak of God
Pete is an emerging church pastor of the Ikon community in Belfast, Ireland. I can’t recommend this book enough.
Phyllis Tickle: The Divine Hours
Phyllis is one the smartest women I’ve ever met. I’m using this book for matins and noon prayer as well as vespers and compline.
*holy mischief in an age of fast faith* I cannot recommend this enough. Ad free, gorgeous, pleasingly dangerous. geez
Anne Lamott: Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith
One of my favorite books of all time. She’s pretty cranky and sarcastic too.
