Broken On The Back Row
Sandi Patty
1582294267
Jan 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this inspiring memoir, Grammy- and Dove Award–winning singer Patty recounts her rise in Christian music, her devastating fall from grace and the long road back to God. In the early 1990s, Patty separated from her husband and began an extramarital affair with a back-up singer who was also married. Patty repeatedly covered up the affair and lied about it before confessing to her pastor and other church members, and asking forgiveness from those she had wronged. She doesn't make excuses for her behavior; although she discusses some of the emotional "baggage" she carried (including childhood sexual abuse by a trusted babysitter), she knows that her actions weren't in keeping with Christian teachings or her family's trust. Refreshingly, she offers no titillating details about the affair itself or about the...

Learning to Breathe Again
Tammy Trent
084991826X
June 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Although September 10, 2001, dawned gloriously for Christian recording artist Trent (She took her husband's first name as her married last name) and her husband, Trent Lenderink, it ended in tragedy. That afternoon the vacationing couple strolled down to a Jamaican dock where Trent's husband entered the water for a short dive. Since he was an experienced scuba diver, she had little fear that her husband would return shortly and join her on the dock. When over 45 minutes had passed, however, she knew she might not see him again. In this sentimental and mawkish memoir, Trent recounts her life and love with her husband, who was her high-school sweetheart. Although the story of her nightmarish tragedy is certainly heartfelt, it is not well told: the prose is overdone as Trent recalls her anguish at her husband's...

Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality
Donald Miller
0785263705
June 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Miller (Prayer and the Art of Volkswagen Maintenance) is a young writer, speaker and campus ministry leader. An earnest evangelical who nearly lost his faith, he went on a spiritual journey, found some progressive politics and most importantly, discovered Jesus' relevance for everyday life. This book, in its own elliptical way, tells the tale of that journey. But the narrative is episodic rather than linear, Miller's style evocative rather than rational and his analysis personally revealing rather than profoundly insightful. As such, it offers a postmodern riff on the classic evangelical presentation of the Gospel, complete with a concluding call to commitment. Written as a series of short essays on vaguely theological topics (faith, grace, belief, confession, church), and disguised theological topics (magic,...

One Step Closer: Why U2 Matters to Those Seeking God
Christian Scharen
1587431696
April 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Perhaps the most popular and influential rock group to espouse Christian ideals without getting sidelined as "Christian rock" is the Irish band U2. Scharen (a Lutheran pastor and instructor of practical theology at Yale) points to the many biblical, theological and spiritual themes found in U2's lyrics to explain why this band "matters to those seeking God." And he does so elegantly, offering the heartfelt and intelligent musings of a fan while also acknowledging the band's wild and worldly bent. He admits U2's lyrics are multivalent, helping the band to attract both religious and nonreligious fans. Scharen is most impressed with U2's emphasis on "the theology of the cross," a theology that accepts both doubts and faith while emphasizing the victory of God's love over the reality of earthly powers. "Despite...


The Psalms of David
James S. Freemantle
0688013120
March 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Of the scores of gift editions of the Book of Psalms, one of the strangest and most beautiful is The Psalms of David, with illuminations by James S. Freemantle. An Englishman born in India in 1859, Freemantle traveled widely in the Middle East during his years in the British Army before marrying a woman named Clara in 1906. Around the time they were married, Freemantle began work on this painstakingly rendered book as a gift for her. Nearly every page is filled with illustrations of magnificent Indian and Middle Eastern flora and fauna (including poinsettias, mimosas, canna lilies, kingfishers, storks, and pheasants) and of Brahmin temples and Christian and Jewish holy sites--even a gigantic iceberg. Almost 30 years after he began, Freemantle finished the book. In the foreword to this new edition (first published in 1982),...

Hardcover

Book Description
Dance like there's no one watching The Bible clearly shows that we have been uniquely created for a purposeful life, but it's not meant to be about us, or our career, or our fame. It's all about God, and His glory. That's the purpose of Chris Tomlin's first book - to get you to think of yourself as one of God's fame builders. You and I are formed from the dust of His creation and given breath for this reason: to spread His renown to everyone we meet by what we say and do. It's the way we were made. The writer of many of today's most cherished youth-oriented worship songs guides readers in a personal and deeper discovery of living for God's glory.

Pickin' Up the Pieces : The Heart and Soul of Country Rock Pioneer Richie Furay
Richie Furay, Michael Roberts
1578569575
April 18, 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
When a young Richie Furay moved to New York hoping to make it big in folk music, God wasn’t one of his concerns. But destiny was.
Later, when he started Buffalo Springfield with Neil Young and Stephen Stills, it seemed Furay’s destiny had finally arrived. Although the band recorded only three albums, it remains a touchstone of sixties rock music–with all five band members now enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Furay remained a musical pioneer, forming Poco and recording some of the first–and best–country rock music of the sixties and seventies. His work was a major influence on the Eagles and innumerable other bands. But he still had not found his destiny.
It wasn’t until his marriage almost disintegrated that Furay confronted his need for God. After...
