A Few Books That Changed My Life

IMG_6834

  1. Disappointment with God: Three Questions No One Asks Aloud by Philip Yancey puts pain and hardship into perspective by addressing with biblical certainty some of life’s hardest questions.
  2. The Irresistible Revolution: Living As an Ordinary Radical by Shane Claiborne paints a description of the modern-day version of walking the earth like Jesus did.
  3. Not for Sale: The Return of the Global Slave Trade–and How We Can Fight It by David Batstone was the first book I read about human trafficking, and its message has never been far from my mind since.
  4. Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth by Ina Mae Gaskin completely revolutionized my view of the labor of love that is an intrinsic part of bringing a child into the world. (A must-read for any pregnant woman!)
  5. The Myth of a Christian Nation: How the Quest for Political Power is Destroying the Church by Gregory A. Boyd helped me be able to put into words my political views (which are, in many senses, non-existent) by highlighting Jesus’ “power-under” kingdom and its contrast to earthly greatness. (This would be a relevant read in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling that many Christians are up in arms about.)
