Out of the House of Bread: Satisfying Your Hunger for God with the Spiritual Disciplines [Kindle], $2.99


Get Out of the House of Bread: Satisfying Your Hunger for God with the Spiritual Disciplines for $2.99 right now at Amazon.

From Amazon:
Spirituality needs fresh meaning.  Even the disciplines of the Spirit have gotten covered with dust and lay unused by Christians.  It is time for spirituality to get fresh meaning in our world and with God’s people.    
In Out of the House of Bread author Preston Yancey leads us in a new direction of spirituality through the symbolism and experience of the spiritual disciplines made plain by the baking of bread.
The benefits of this book of devotion include:  Finding a nearness to the holiness of God.  Feeling and experiencing the forgiveness of God. And learning again the disciplines of celebration, confession, and conversion.  Each chapter pairs a spiritual discipline or practice with a baking discipline. You will encounter ancient practices such as the prayer of examen, lectio divina, intercessory prayer, icons, and stillness.
Yancey shows how, like in Brother Lawrence’s kitchen in The Practice of the Presence of God, that when you lift up your hands to God and pray, God will show up right there in the midst of your work and livelihood while you bake.
Out of the House of Bread is a glorious celebration of the sacraments and the seasons of God, meant as reminders and symbols to take us to God in worship.  An appendix, about gluten-free and vegan bread and the spirituality involved,will close off the book.

Walden on Wheels: On the Open Road from Debt to Freedom [Kindle], $1.99


Get Walden on Wheels: On the Open Road from Debt to Freedom for $1.99 right now at Amazon.

From Amazon:
In this frank and witty memoir, Ken Ilgunas lays bare the existential terror of graduating from the University of Buffalo with $32,000 of student debt. Ilgunas set himself an ambitious mission: get out of debt as quickly as possible. Inspired by the frugality and philosophy of Henry David Thoreau, Ilgunas undertook a 3-year transcontinental journey, working in Alaska as a tour guide, garbage picker, and night cook to pay off his student loans before hitchhiking home to New York. 
Debt-free, Ilgunas then enrolled in a master’s program at Duke University, determined not to borrow against his future again. He used the last of his savings to buy himself a used Econoline van and outfitted it as his new dorm. The van, stationed in a campus parking lot, would be more than an adventure—it would be his very own “Walden on Wheels.”
