Phyliss Tickle’s The Great Emergence is one of the best books I’ve read all year. The notion that there is a significant shift happening within the Christian faith isn’t necessarily a new concept. But she places the current “emergence” in the context of the history of Christianity in a very eye-opening, thoughtful way.
Rob Bell and Don Golden’s Jesus Wants to Save Christians is fantastic. I trust it will challenge many as it did me.
Sarah Vowell’s The Wordy Shipmates is a very humorous and informative account of the Massachusetts puritans journey to America. Great read.
