The Must Reads For the Beginning of 2018

Books are a welcome welcome for me. These are the books I am looking forward to this year.

This week:

Judgement Detox by Gabrielle Bernstein (North Star Way, $25.99, ISBN 978-1-5011-6896-3) features six steps that use spiritual principles as well as meditation and prayer in order to raise readers’ awareness of resentment and jealousy that can result from their judgments and perceptions.

Love Thy Body by Nancy Pearcey (Baker, $22.99, 978-0-8010-7572-8). A former agnostic, Pearcey looks at what she calls the “dehumanizing impact” of secularist views of the body, biology, and sexuality, making a case for how Christianity teaches a holistic view of each.

In the next few weeks:
