2. Open and Relational Theology: An Introduction to Life-Changing Ideas
Author: by Thomas Jay Oord
Most theologies suck. They’re too technical or they describe a God nobody understands. Sometimes the God portrayed sounds like a controlling boyfriend or absentee parent. Rather than woo or persuade, most theology books clobber readers into submission. This book is different.
Thomas Jay Oord presents a theology that makes sense. It fits the way we live our lives and matches our deepest intuitions. To the surprise of some, it harmonizes with sacred scripture… At least the good parts. And it promotes a genuinely loving God.
Open and relational theology is controversial. Oord and others have lost their jobs because they embrace it. Others have been booted from religious communities or shunned by families and friends.It’s that radical! Using understandable language and illustrations from everyday life, Oord explains the core ideas of open and relational theology.
He reveals why this way of thinking is life-changing for good for so many. This theology doesn’t suck.

7. Lament for a Son
Author: by Nicholas Wolterstorff
Well-known Christian philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff has authored many books that have contributed significantly to scholarship in several subjects. In Lament for a Son he writes not as a scholar but as a loving father grieving the loss of his son.
In brief vignettes Wolterstorff explores with a moving honesty and intensity, all the facets of his experience of this irreversible loss. Though he grieves “not as one who has no hope,” he finds no comfort in the pious-sounding phrases that would diminish the malevolence of death.
The book is in one sense a narrative account of events-from the numbing telephone call on a sunny Sunday afternoon that tells of 25-year-old Eric’s death in a mountain-climbing accident, to a graveside visit a year later. But the book is far more than narrative.
Every event is an occasion for remembering, for meditating, for Job-like anguish in the struggle to accept and understand. A profoundly faith-affirming book, Lament for a Son gives eloquent expression to a grief that is at once unique and universal-a grief for an individual, irreplaceable person.
8. Feeling Is The Secret
Author: by Neville Goddard
The iconic metaphysical masterpiece that will change your life…”Think feelingly only of the state you desire to realize. Feeling the reality of the state sought and living and acting on that conviction is the way of all seeming miracles.
All changes of expression are brought about through a change of feeling. A change of feeling is a change of destiny.” One of the great metaphysical teachers of the 20th century, Neville Goddard showed people how they could attain their goals simply by refining their imagination.
Feeling Is The Secret is his most famous book.

11. Parenting by The Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child
Author: by John Rosemond
With a down-to-earth, warm, and humorous style, one of America’s top family psychologists sets forth a virtually stress-free, biblically based system of childrearing that encourages family growth in harmony with God’s Word. Picture respectful, responsible, obedient children who entertain themselves without television or video games, do their own homework, and have impeccable manners.
A pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Not so, says family psychologist and bestselling author John Rosemond. In the 1960s, American parents stopped listening to their elders when it came to child rearing and began listening instead to professional experts. Since then, raising children has become fraught with anxiety, stress, and frustration.
The solution, says John, lies in raising children according to biblical principles, the same principles that guided parents successfully for hundreds of years. They worked then, and they still work now! In this book you’ll find practical, Bible-based advice that will help you be the parent you want to be, with children who will be, as the Bible promises, a delight to your soul (Prov.29:17).

13. Broken Like Me: An Insider's Toolkit For Mending Broken People
Author: by Joseph Reid
This is the part of the book where I’m supposed to convince you that reading this book is worthwhile. I wish I didn’t have to. I wish I never had to write it. I wish my best friend hadn’t killed himself.
But brokenness exists. And, my friend did kill himself. I go through most days feeling broken and having thoughts of suicide. So, here’s my book to you. I didn’t write it to make a lot of money, but out of a need to survive.
It is born out of my story. I write about things in this book that made life easier, and at times, probably kept me alive. No one should have to wait to tell their story until they have everything figured out, and that’s what I’m trying to make sure you don’t have to do.
Here are some things I’d like you to think about as you consider reading this book. Do you:Feel like you have to pretend you’re not broken, and pray that your struggle doesn’t get passed on to your kids? Feel overwhelmed with inadequate boundaries and need help knowing where to draw the line with people?
14. God Can't: How to Believe in God and Love after Tragedy, Abuse, and Other Evils
Author: by Thomas Jay Oord
Hurting people ask heart-felt questions about God and suffering. Some “answers” they receive appeal to mystery: God’s ways are not our ways. Some answers say God allows evil for a greater purpose. Some say evil is God’s punishment. The usual answers fail.
They don’t support the truth God loves everyone all the time. God Can’t gives a believable answer to why a good and powerful God doesn’t prevent evil. Author Thomas Jay Oord says God’s love is inherently uncontrolling. God loves everyone and everything, so God can’t control anyone or anything.
This means God cannot prevent evil singlehandedly. God can’t stop evildoers, whether human, animal, organisms, or inanimate objects and forces. In God Can’t, Oord gives a plausible reason why some are healed but many others are not. God always works to heal everyone, but sometimes our bodies, organisms, or other creatures do not cooperate with God’s healing work.
Or the conditions of creation are not right for the healing God wants to do. Some people think God causes or allows suffering to teach us lessons or build our character. God Can’t disagrees. Oord says God squeezes good from the evil God didn’t want in the first place.
