Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry

“Buffalo 9780836196894Shout, Salmon Cry” edited by Steve Heinrichs is an excellent collection of essays with responses written by both indigenous and settler voices.  The book includes all voices, those that represent mainstream thinking as well as those that speak from the margins.  The topics range from creation to land justice and what life together means and looks like going forward.  Thought provoking and informative, a book well worth reading (and discussing) individually or as a group.



More Spiritual Heroes

Earlier in the month, I posted the first round of spiritual Heroes. Rev. Heather, Sheila, and Cindy all wrote about their heroes with great clarity. The rest of us were immersed in the end of term and so overwhelmed by our heroes that we all had writers’ block. Oh well. Here’s a list of the heroes and associated books with no inspiring comments.

Dr. Heather’s Hero: John Stott.

Recommended Reading by Stott: The Radical Disciple, Stott’s last book.


Carolyn’s Hero: Pope Francis

Recommended Reading by Pope Francis The Church of Mercy


Connor’s Hero: Martin Buber

Recommended Reading by Martin Buber: I and Thou

<Connor Chose a Used Book again, so no image>

Ed’s Hero: Brother Lawrence

Recommended Reading by Brother Lawrence: The Practice of the Presence of God


Ryan’s Hero: J.I. Packer

Recommended Reading by Packer: Knowing God.

Rev. Heather loves: Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis


Connor loves: Tales Worth Telling: Views from an Ivory Tower by Harry St. Clair Hilchey
Unfortunately we’ve only got a used copy of this book, available in-store only! Come in and pick up this collection of anecdotes from the history of Wycliffe College.


Ryan loves: The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis


Ryan says: “The Silver Chair is my favourite book in the Chronicles of Narnia series. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a great entry point into the Narnia series or, for others, a great re-entry point.”
