The Promise of Paradox: A Celebration of Contradictions in the Christian Life
– by Parker J. Palmer
Parker Palmer always makes me think and speaks to my spirituality. The spirituality he calls me to is rarely individualistic. It demands that we think communally. This book touches that especially as it lifts up the contrast between scarcity and abundance. His position is that we operate out of the idea of scarcity, while God calls us to live in the abundance of God. This living into the abundance of God is done through prayer, education, and community.
