Looking for a good book?

Here are a few suggestions from us!

Oliver O’Donovan, On The Thirty-Nine Articles: Conversations with Tutor Christianity.

A great book for understanding the 39 Articles and their effect on our lives as Anglicans. Frankly, all of the faith traditions and denominations that came out of the Anglican Church (Methodist, Baptist among the largest) have the 39 Articles in their DNA.


Tish Harrison Warren, Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life. 

Tish, an Anglican Priest in the Pittsburgh Diocese, a contributor to the New York Time and Christianity Today has written a book emphasizing that every aspect of our lives is filled with liturgy and every liturgy should be a part of our acknowledgement and worship of God.

This is one of the most practical, significant books you will read; it’s a great one to share with others.


C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

A must-have for every Christian. C.S. Lewis, as only he could do, reverses the perspective so that the reader can understand how the Evil One and his minions view Christianity. “I read this book almost every year to remind me of the reality of evil in the world.” Rev. Steve Savia.


John Bunyan, The Pilgrim’s Progress

Quite probably the most published and widely read book of all time with the exception of the Bible. While in prison in the 16th Century, Buyan wrote an allegory of the Christian journey to the “Celestial City.”

Follow “Christian” and the people, companions, and situations he encounters as he makes his way to heaven.


Alan Jacobs, The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography by Alan Jacobs

This is not a repeat of the BCP but is really a biography of the life of the Book of Common Prayer. This book is a fascinating read of the origins and evolution of the Book of Common Prayer.


Bruce Feiler, Walking the Bible

A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of Moses

The author Bruce Feiler has a readable approach as he searches out the truth of the five books of Moses as written in the Old Testament.    As the reader understands how personal this trek becomes to Mr. Feiler’s spiritual life, it makes you want to read more!
