Faith-Full Readers Spring 2018 Books
Same Kind of Different As Me. By Ron Hall
From one individual reader’s review on Amazon: I loved this book! Amazing in that both authors were so honest about their lives. Unbelievable that these things still happen in the U.S.A. I will never look at the homeless the same. This book deeply touched my heart and soul. Inspirational!!!
The Book of Forgiving: The Four Fold Path For Healing Ourselves and Our World by Desmond Tutu
“There is no one who embodies the virtue of forgiveness like Desmond Tutu. With this book, he and his daughter take forgiveness out of the realm of mystery and offer a handbook on forgiveness, revealing this most exacting and freeing of human capacities in all its complexity and transformative achievability.” (Krista Tippett, Host/Executive Producer of On Being)
The Middle Step by Denise Pattiz Bogard
The novel is set in North St. Louis and explores the intersection of race, poverty and family-- a topic more important and more timely than ever.
Gift of the Red Bird: The Story of a Divine Encounter by Paula D’Arcy

She tells her story of spiritual exhaustion, her journey alone into the wilderness for three days, and the renewal she was blessed to experience.
