Do You Want To Know God?
Blue Like Jazz
:: by Donald Miller
I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn't resolve. . . . I used to not like God because God didn't resolve. But that was before any of this happened." In Donald Miller's early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God.
Do You Want To Find Out What Real Community Looks Like?
Kingdom of Couches
:: by Will Walker
Community is a buzzword. Everyone needs it, most everyone wants it, and yet we're left on our own to figure out how to get it. This book does three critical things: It gives intensely practical insight on the how's and why's of living out our faith in community; through personal examples and stories, it makes you crave the community you're reading about; it satisfies your longing for real literature, not "just another Christian book." This book is ridiculously well written, funny, insightful, even brilliant. Will Walker is on staff with Coram Deo church in Omaha, NE. His work has appeared in several publications including Deeper Walk by Relevant Books.

Fuzzy thinking has dominated the paradox between the black and white, and more and more Christians are confused on how to live an effective, culturally relevant life. Transformation is needed. The Journey Towards Relevance invites you to begin a journey towards that transformation ’Äîtowards relevance.

Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing His Will Workbook
:: by Henry T. Blackaby
Knowing God does not come through a program, a study, or a method. Knowing God comes through a relationship with a Person. He invites you to join Him where He is already at work.

Although there's strong tension between the self-help tone of this book and its hard-line argument that faith is purely a response to God's initiative, many readers will nevertheless find great encouragement in hearing a still, small voice among a vast number of everyday experiences. The orginial price on Amazon is over $18 but you can get it used for just $2.

Are You a Deep Thinker?
:: by C.S. Lewis
A In 1943 England, when all hope was threatened by the inhumanity of war, C.S. Lewis was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. First heard as informal radio broadcasts, the lectures were then published as three books and subsequently combined as Mere Christianity. C.S. Lewis proves that "at the center of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice," rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations. This twentieth-century masterpiece provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike.
