You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit

by James K.A. Smith

$16.00

You Are What You Love is an accessible and condensed work of Jamie Smith’s seminal work Desiring the Kingdom. The thesis is obvious from the title, and simple: a person is not an automated thinking thing, but a living creature who is governed by their loves. Smith argues that Christian formation is not solely about what we think, but equally, if not more so in many cases, about what we love. Smith draws heavily upon Augustine, the Reformed Tradition and a myriad of philosophers to buttress his arguments. But the book is not just about philosophy or theology; it unpacks how what you love affects everyday life. Smith’s chapters on Christian Worship, the Liturgies of Home, and Teaching Your Children Well make the book a worthy purchase. I would highly recommend You Are What You Love to those looking for books on Christian formation in the everyday life. (review by Austin Ariail)

None But Christ (hardcover)

by John Wall

$16.00

John Wall, Puritan and pastor of St. Michael’s, Cornhill, London from 1646 to 1652, was commissioned by a member of the House of Commons to write this book. Based on 1 Corinthians 2:2, Wall proclaims after Paul, there is nothing more important than “to know Christ and Him crucified”. After delineating the many ways we ought to know Christ, he then gives eleven signs of one who knows Christ unto salvation. Using a Q&A format, Wall encourages the doubter about his assurance of salvation. He concludes with exhortations to pastors to preach Christ crucified and instructs them in how to do it.

Pursuing Health in an Anxious Age

by Bob Cutillo, M.D.

$13.00

Even in the midst of our brazenly individualistic society, health is not an individual concern, Cutillo argues, but a responsibility of the whole community. Cutillo’s exploration of who we are as created beings, his nods to some of the best writers of all time and his love of God and people make this an enjoyable read, though not an easy one. He challenges us to think about the history of medicine, the culture we live in, our healthcare system and our own mortality. Bob Cutillo is an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and an Associate Faculty Member at Denver Seminary.

Keeping Place: Reflections on the Meaning of Home

by Jen Pollock Michel

$12.00

If you enjoyed Jen’s first book, Teach Us to Want, which earned Christianity Today’s Book of the Year award, you will find the same thoughtful prose here. Scott Sauls (Jesus Outside the Lines) says in his introduction, “Keeping Place is both memoir and rich biblical theology, and is, in all of its parts, an aroma of the home we’ve been made and are destined for.”
