Rowan Williams explores the essential meaning and purpose of Paul’s letters in this beautifully written resource for the Lenten season. Williams places a special focus on the social world of Paul-and the “dangerous newness” that was Christianity-and the specific ways that the behavior and language of the Christian community was being molded and shaped in Paul’s time. Easy-to-read and packed with illuminating spiritual insights, Meeting God in Paul is perfect for beginners as well as those who’ve read the letters many times before and want to see them in a fresh light.
Out of the House of Bread: Satisfying Your Hunger for God with the Spiritual Disciplines by Preston Yancey – $2.99
160 pages, 4 of 4 reviews are 5 Star
Spirituality needs fresh meaning. Even the disciplines of the Spirit have gotten covered with dust and lay unused by Christians. It is time for spirituality to get fresh meaning in our world and with God’s people.
In Out of the House of Bread author Preston Yancey leads us in a new direction of spirituality through the symbolism and experience of the spiritual disciplines made plain by the baking of bread.
Yancey shows how, like in Brother Lawrence’s kitchen in The Practice of the Presence of God, that when you lift up your hands to God and pray, God will show up right there in the midst of your work and livelihood while you bake.

Kara Tippetts knows the ordinary days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow … and the devestating reality of stage-four cancer. In The Hardest Peace, Kara doesn’t offer answers for when living is hard, but she asks us to join her in moving away from fear and control and toward peace and grace. Most of all, she draws us back to the God who is with us, in th mundane and the suffering, and who shapes even our pain into beauty.
