Dear Ministry Partner,

What you have in your hands (or are reading on a screen) is something totally different than we have ever done. CONTAINED IN THESE PAGES is a grouping of items so thrilling to read you will also talk, tweet, and recommend them. You’ll still find some “read this because it's required reading to understand our faith” resources; however, the catalog is jam-packed with “read this to be delighted by, enriched by, and maybe even a little challenged by what it means to be an Episcopalian today” resources. We’ve also thrown in some “what other Episcopalians are writing about, and great stuff not about us or by us” resources for good measure . . . because reading these selections will deepen your Christian experience.

Because Sometimes God Shows Up at Night Barbara Brown Taylor

As disciples, we are called to craziness. Some of us were in the hall when Bishop Curry’s elevation was announced . . . talk about crazy Christians! This book is based on the video of Bishop Curry’s acclaimed address to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church that went viral on the web and distills his outlook and beliefs.

We associate all that is good with lightness and all that is evil and dangerous with darkness. Doesn’t God work in the nighttime as well? Known as a preacher beyond compare, Brown has been honest about her doubts and broadening understanding of what constitutes “church.” Her beautiful, accessible prose delivers a powerful religious voice.

Steven Charleston

A third-generation Christian pastor, a citizen of the Choctaw Nation, the retired Bishop of Alaska and the former Dean and President of the Episcopal Divinity School, Charleston offers a unique perspective on Jesus through a Native American lens.

Episcopal Voices

CITY OF GOD

Faith in the Streets Sara Miles

Recently named a CNN Hero, Rev. Stevens proudly calls herself a “snake oil seller.” If you haven’t become a Thistle Farmer yet, read on. This book recounts the story of her work with Magdalene/Thistle Farms. Her bath and body business has empowered women caught in addiction and prostitution to fundamentally change their lives and the lives of their families.

The world, the streets, the unloved are our Church. This powerful personal narrative describes the events of a single Ash Wednesday when Sara Miles took ashes to the streets to mark the foreheads of strangers. Our favorite review of this book was from Nadia Bolz-Weber: “Where two or more Anglicans, or prostitutes or head-injured junkies or housewives are gathered, He is with us.”

A global and pioneering leader of progressive Christianity offers a radical new way to look at the Gospels.

WOLF HALL

A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY

Hilary Mantel

John Irving

Centered on the life of Thomas Cromwell and the brutal world in which he lived, these two winners of The Man Booker prize will hold you in anticipation of the third book in the trilogy, still being written. Rumor has it it will be called The Mirror and the Light and there will be midnight-release parties, Harry Potter-style. (Come dressed as your favorite wife of Henry VIII.)

While this is an allegory on the life of Christ, don’t let that frighten you. This 50s-era coming-of-age novel, the tale of a boy, wise way beyond his years, gives insight into how we view disability, fate, and family. Irving at his best. (Oh—and it makes the list because the friends meet at an Episcopal Sunday School.)

Pym turns a shrewd, mocking, but always affectionate eye on English country life 30 years ago. Pym’s fans will feel completely at home when they step into the Jane Austen-like lives of her beloved characters.

TRANSFORMED LIVES

Making Sense of Atonement Today Cynthia S. W. Crysdale If the theology of atonement is difficult for theologians to agree upon, how are the rest of us supposed to grasp it without our eyes glazing over? Crysdale, whose background is in both psychology and theology, uses un-boring, everyday language to bring a a unique perspective to this difficult subject for lay people. She presents an overview of the history of the theology of atonement, addresses clearly the difficulties around this concept, and brings us with her to a contemporary understanding.

JESUS AND THE DISINHERITED

Howard Thurman

What happens when groups are marginalized or become the other? What happens to them, and to the larger community? In this classic work, the acclaimed theologian and religious and Civil Rights leader describes how the gospel may be interpreted as a manual of resistance for the poor and disenfranchised. In contrast to recent violent protests, Thurman contends that hatred does not empower—it decays—and that the example of Jesus’ life offers a solution. 7/29/16 9:04 AM

LIVING ON THE BORDER OF THE HOLY

Renewing the Priesthood of All L. William Countryman

This book may just redefine the way we think of the priesthood. It argues that all of us are priests, whether we know it or not, simply by virtue of being human, ministering to each other, and living on the mysterious and uncertain border with the Holy. It explores the priestly ministries of both the laity and the ordained and examines the implications of this dual view of priesthood for churches and for educating those studying for ordination.

W E E P, A N D T H E N D I G I N T O THE LEWIS CORPUS.

MERE CHRISTIANITY

A GRIEF OBSERVED

C. S. Lewis; Pauline Baynes, illustrator

C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis

Mere Christianity was gleaned from C. S. Lewis’ series of informal, WWII-era BBC radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. This 20th century masterpiece provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. Illustrated gift edition with a new foreword by Lewis’ stepson.

Taken from Lewis’ journals after the death of his beloved wife Joy, A Grief Observed was first released under the nom de plume N. W. Clerk. It was not released under his own name until after his death. This beautiful and unf linchingly honest record shows how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe in the midst of loss, and how he can gradually regain his bearings.

Time to revisit Narnia! Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures, epic battles between good and evil—the Narnia books have it all. They’ve transcended the fantasy genre—and the genre of children’s books—to become part of the canon of classic literature. This edition created for the adult reader contains all seven books, unabridged, in one impressive volume, presented here according to Lewis’ preferred order, each chapter graced with an illustration by the original artist.

THE FELLOWSHIP

The Literary Lives of the Inklings: J.R.R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, Owen Barfield, Charles Williams Philip Zaleski and Carol Zaleski For more than three decades, C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien—along with their closest associates—were members of a literary club they’d formed at Oxford called the Inklings. They gave one another invaluable companionship, inspiration, and criticism. This is the first complete rendering of the Inklings’ lives and works.

OUT OF THE HOUSE OF BREAD

Satisfying Your Hunger for God with the Spiritual Disciplines Preston Yancey

SHORT STORIES BY JESUS

The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi Amy-Jill Levine

Some of us think the disciplines of the Spirit feel too much like rules and need help focusing on prayer. And a few of us like to make bread. This book efficiently combines inspiration for doing both. Readers encounter ancient practices (the prayer of examen, lectio divina, intercessory prayer, icons, wonder) paired with insight to the baking of an extraordinary loaf of bread. And the book itself is gluten-free!

Bishop John Shelby Spong feels we are committing heresy if we don’t fully understand the Jewishness of Jesus. So who better to teach us, then, than an Orthodox-Jewish New Testament expert? In this wise and entertaining book, Levine takes readers back in time to understand how Jesus used parables from everyday life to convey his message and meaning and how his original Jewish audience understood them.

SABBATH AS RESISTANCE

Saying No to the Culture of Now Walter Brueggemann

Life gets in the way too easily. Find out how powerful a Sabbath can be. Brueggemann writes that keeping the Sabbath is not about moralistic laws and arguments on what should and shouldn’t be done on Sundays. Instead, it’s about becoming a whole person and restoring a whole society—breaking our restless modern cycle and focusing on what is truly important.
