Good Books

The Shack

By William Paul Young You've heard about it, now read it. It's good.

Walking on Water

By Madeleine L'Engle “The journey homewards. Coming home. That's what it's all about. The journey to the coming of the Kingdom. That's probably the chief difference between the Christian and the secular artist--the purpose of the work, be it story or music or painting, is to further the coming of the kingdom, to make us aware of our status as children of God, and to turn our feet toward home.”

Life After God

By Douglas Coupland I love this weird and beautiful little book. “Time ticks by; we grow older. Before we know it, too much time has passed and we've missed the chance to have had other people hurt us. To a younger me this sounded like luck; to an older me this sounds like a quiet tragedy.”

The Ragamuffin Gospel

By Brennan Manning "“When I get honest, I admit I am a bundle of paradoxes. I believe and I doubt, I hope and get discouraged, I love and I hate, I feel bad about feeling good, I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I am trusting and suspicious. I am honest and I still play games. Aristotle said I am a rational animal; I say I am an angel with an incredible capacity for beer.”

The Beekeeper's Apprentice

By Laurie R. King You didn't think it was all going to be Jesus books did you? I LOVE reading. This is the first of a series where Mary Russell becomes Sherlock Holmes' friend and apprentice. It's beautifully written.


By C. Baxter Kruger Imagine being disillusioned and numbed by religion and then getting taken to the cave on Patmos where John, the old man disciple of Jesus, is exiled. It's a trip and it's it's deep. Baxter Kruger is amazing. Look him up on youtube and listen to some truly good news.

A More Christlike God

By Brad Jersak What can I say? God is more kind than we can imagine. Look this guy up on youtube. He's an awesome Greek Orthodox theologian.

The Hawk & the Dove

By Penelope Wilcock My all time favorite book. Ever. (look for the out of print trilogy to save some $ and get three books for the price of one)

Still Life

By Louise Penny This series is beautifully written. The characters are realistic and the mysteries are deep and draw you in. You'll enjoy these books!
