More Books For Tcpc's Store?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone :-) Well, as I've been thinking about how our spending habits have both incredible powers (fair trade, etc.) and what they say about us...I've been making up a list of places where you can buy books online from nonprofits, charities, etc. (Don't worry, I'm working on clothing and coffee too! :-D)


And one thing I noticed is that as great as the list at TCPC's online store is, just a few books are missing. If the Center can get these few books on their website we can "donate" 15% of the books' prices without ever doing anything else.


So, on this post follows a long list of all the books currently available through the store. My next post will be just a couple I wish the Center would add.


Please, everyone add their favorites! Not only could we rake in some work-free revenue for the Center, but we can get ideas for reading material off of each other's recommendations!

Just for starters, here are some books for which I'd love to "donate" 15%-of-the-price to TCPC:


Borg, Marcus. The Heart of Christianity.


Definitely the most important as I usually pick up books at local used bookstores, but this one won't be available used for some time and I just can't wait!! :-)


Walter Wink, The Powers That Be and other books


Thomas Merton writings


Some high-quality Bible translations


Tony Campolo - heard about him lately, want to read him!


Quaker writings can be found on many Quaker nonprofits so that's why I haven't included them here


Anyone else got suggestions?

Thanks for your creating this thread. You have me looking into several entries I had missed. You have most of my favorite authors but may I suggest two others: Marianne Williamson and Gerald G.Jampolski

I'd recommend some books on the contemplative tradition(s) --


anything by Thomas Keating

Wayne Teasdale's The Mystic Heart

Evelyn Underhill's Mysticism

William Johnston's Arise My Love: Mysticism for a New Era

Thich Nhat Hanh's Living Buddha, Living Christ


And also books by Joan Chittister (In Search of Belief is great)

And Wendy M. Wright's trilogy: The Vigil, The Rising, The Time Between . . .


My two cents for now,
