I know this isn’t our usual subject, darlings, but this is a personal favor. I realize that I don’t use most of the books in my lovely personal library. I’ve read most of them, I treasure many of them, but I feel that I need a serious overhaul in my worship resources section, which includes poetry, anthologies, essays and theology.
What I especially seek are collections such as Spiritual Literacy: Reading The Sacred In Everyday Life by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat. You know, those “little gem” books.
My tradition is not Christian, so please keep that in mind. We draw wisdom from many world traditions and although we’re not allergic to Jesus Christ, we are more broadly Theist, pantheistic and Humanist.
I am also hoping to find recommendations for really hot theology — heavyweight suggestions.
I read a huge amount of sociological type stuff online and in the newspapers and magazine subscriptions, so unless something is super fab, that’s not the subject matter I’m looking for.
Thanks for inspiring me.
