I’m really excited about a series of books I recently discovered: Brazos Press’s Christian Practices of Everyday Life Series. Last week I finished reading Norman Wirzba’s Living the Sabbath. Impressed by Wirzba’s articulation of the importance (and challenging counter-cultural call) of living a sabbath lifestyle in our world, I decided to check out some of the other books in the series. Now I’m reading Eric Jacobsen’s Sidewalks in the Kingdom: New Urbanism and the Christian Faith, and Eileen’s reading Elizabeth Newman’s Untamed Hospitality. If you’re looking for thoughtful books on how to live out your faith in the midst of contemporary culture, these are definitely worth your time.
