this week i had ample time on flights across the country to read a number of books that were recommended to me by friends.
here are a few i’ve read in recent days ::
the contemplative pastor: returning to the art of spiritual direction
by eugene peterson
unexpected gifts: discovering the way of community
by christopher heuertz
(i’ll be blogging about this book in the coming week – particularly since The Marin Foundation will be hosting chris for our Living in the Tension event this evening to discuss his new book).
i’m also working my way through the fascinating story of pope Celestine V – the first and only pope to resign the seat of st. peter prior to this past week when pope benedict did so under similarly fascinating circumstances behind the closed doors of the vatican.
this factual historical account reads more like a dan brown novel than it does ‘boring’ church history (although, as a self-admitting history nerd, i may or may not be biased).
here are some other books i’ve read recently.
what other books you would recommend? what are you reading?
