Alan watt, Greg Boyle, Richard Rohr- who else should I be reading❓
@rebekahcrabs I also love Rachel Held Evans, Peter Rollins, and I am getting ready to start a book by Nadia Bolz Weber.
@Vaashtii I just finished Nadia Bolz Weber’s new book. I’ll have to check out Rollins and Evans
@rebekahcrabs what topics are you after?
@levi I guess I’m looking for an introduction to a broader understanding of spirituality and humanism. Or just your favorite book I guess
@rebekahcrabs Ah got it. I don't have too much to recommend in a super broad vein, but I've loved NT Wright, Bart Ehrman, and Thomas Cahill for gaining far more (primarily Jewish) context around Jesus / Christianity in the 1st century.
@levi I’ll Have to look them up. I know nothing about Jewish Context. Thanks
@rebekahcrabs you bet!
@rebekahcrabs Peter Enns might be interesting to you. I second Rachel Held Evans and Nadia Bolz Weber's memoirs, Pastrix and Accidental Saints.
Amy-Jill Levine - The misunderstood Jew;
Diana Butler-Bass - Grounded; Barbara Brown Taylor - The luminous web
@rebekahcrabs Eckhart Tolle.
@rebekahcrabs As a therapist, this will be helpful in your practice...
Benner, David G. "Spirituality and the Awakening Self: The Sacred Journey of Transformation" (Grand Rapids, MI: Brazos Press, 2012) ISBN 158743296X
Rob Bell - Delivers some excellent talks. He has a long running podcast, the Robcast, well worth listening too + many books.
Peter Rollins - Philosophy/(Theology, but unconventional) has some good books and a podcast called the fundamentalists. Has also appeared on the liturgists and the Robcast (several times; worth listening to).
Eckhart Tolle - Talks about the ego and being present. Has a great book, the power of now. There's also a series on Oprah's podcast that he co-hosts,
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
