What are some of the Staff at Christ Church reading ?

“Jesus, My Father, The CIA and Me” by Ian Cron.
Cron is a master with words and it’s well written.  He has the gift of bringing the extraordinary into the ordinary as he tells his life story.  It’s witty, profound, humble and has been a great encouragement in my very ‘ ordinary’ journey of faith. Judy used his ‘love always stoops’ illustration in her Good Friday talk. I have spoken to a few people who have read it and have agreed it’s our book of the year. As Rowan Williams said about this book, “Ian Cron has the gift of making his human journey a parable for all our journeys. Read this profound book and be well fed and freed”.

"The Robe" - Lloyd C Douglas
A Roman soldier, Marcellus, wins Christ's robe as a gambling prize. He then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene's robe-a quest that reaches to the very roots and heart of Christianity and is set against the vividly limned background of ancient Rome. It is a wonderful read, a classic and I am now excited to read The Big Fisherman, which is the story of Simon Peter.

"Simplicity: The Freedom of Letting Go" - Richard Rohr
Richard Rohr dives below the surface of rational Western culture in a dialog about God's Kingdom, being poor, social justice and living in a deeper place of simplicity where we are at home with the Jesus in us. The thoughts in this book are profound, simple, and challenging. This book truly captivated me. I did not want to put it down. My mind was stretched and my heart defibrillated as I began to see how simple it all really is... Blessed are those with very little... Blessed are those who have lost something... Blessed are those... Is the Sermon on the Mount just imagery of a life which is unobtainable to us now? His Kingdom seems to be up-side-down. And as Jesus said, "The Kingdom is here now!" 
Margie - The gift of an ordinary day -
I read a lovely book 'The gift of an ordinary day': Katrina Kenison. It was beautifully written and seemed to describe perfectly where I find myself in terms of parenting! One which can be read again and again each time getting something new from it.
