Now that January is more than 2/3 over, here are the staff picks for the month:
Ed – The ESV Bible black leather with a zipper. Handy for travel!
Cindy – My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers.
Heather W: The Radical Disciple by John R. W. Stott, his last book, and one of HW’s picks of 2013
Alain: The Church and the Market: A Catholic Defense of the Free Economy by Thomas E. Woods Jr.
Sheila: Becoming Human by John Behr. Sheila says “It is a beautiful book, a meditation on what it is to be human with images and quotations woven throughout to give the reader much to ponder. In lyrical prose, Father Behr invites us to look upon Christ, God and Man, and through Christ, to understand our calling to be human. It is a lovely book to read especially ‘in the bleak midwinter’.”
Conner: Simple and Direct: A Rhetoric for Writers by Jacques Barzun.
Carolyn: A Secular Age by Charles Taylor. Carolyn thinks this is a book that everyone should have in their library.
Andrew: Charity: The Place of the Poor in the Biblical Tradition by Gary A. Anderson.
Heather L: A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis
