Books

I’ve written one book and co-authored two others, and my words have appeared in a few more. Here are three recent books.

 

The Way of Love: A Practical Guide to Following Jesus. Forward Movement, 2020.

Way of Love book coverAs followers of Christ, we are called to live in ways that draw us ever closer to our Savior. To follow Jesus is to make extraordinary commitments: To love God with our whole being and to love others as Jesus has loved us. One path to the Way of Love is through seven key actions: Turn. Learn. Pray. Worship. Bless. Go. Rest. This practical guide explores these words in the context of our life of faith and offers encouragement to begin or deepen spiritual practices to strengthen our journey with Jesus.

Includes testimonies from lay people on each of the seven practices, along with reflection questions, journal prompts, and a guide for developing a personal rule of life. Foreword by Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church.

Available from Forward Movement or Amazon. Buy the ebook for your Amazon Kindle or for Apple Books.

Faithful Questions: Exploring the Way with Jesus, co-authored with Melody Wilson Shobe. Forward Movement, 2015.

Faithful Questions coverAsking questions is an essential part of our faith. Nearly every person in the Bible who encountered God did so with serious questions. Faithful Questions is an invitation to engage our curiosity and our wonder as we seek to follow Jesus. Does God answer our prayers? Why did Jesus die? Faithful Questions explores these and many other questions of our faith. Faithful Questions is a companion to the Transforming Questions course.
