A Passion for Islam (Murphy), No god but God (Aslan), The Great Turning (Korten), Beyond Growth (Daly), A Framework for Understanding Poverty (Payne), Our Endangered Values (Carter), War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning (Hedges)
Wendell Berry, Denise Levertov, Mary Oliver
Chronicles (Dylan)
Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor (Boff), Jesus Christ Liberator (Sobrino), A Future for Africa (Katongole), Sex and the Single Savior (Martin), Jesus and Empire (Horsley), God and Empire (Crossan), How (not) to Speak of God (Rollins)
Irresistable Revolution (Claiborne)
There have been many other good books too, but it’s hard to know when to stop! The best of the best, for me, was Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor (Leonardo Boff). It filled my mind and heart with worship.
