I would highly recommend:
- Toni Morrison--anything written by Ms. Morrison is fantastically lyrical, inspiring, and thought provoking. The Bluest Eye and Beloved are two that come immediately to mind. Currently, Burn this Book is on my Kindle waiting to be read. It's next in line after Annie Dillard's The Writing Life.
Debbie Blue is co-pastor at House of Mercy in St. Paul, MN. Her writing and preaching is earthy, honest, and irresistible! Her two published books are Sensual Orthodoxy and From Stone to Living Word--don't miss either! I hope she has another coming out soon!
Joyce Rupp--I feel as though I'm indulging in those folks you already know but just this morning I was thinking about how it was time to read and journal through Cup of Life again. It is one of the few books that I've worked through the entire thing and surely its the only one I enjoyed and want to do over! It was and continues to be very helpful to my spiritual development. Now, can I find my copy, or have I given it to someone else and it's not been returned, do I need another copy?
Dr. Rev. Angela D. Sims!
Sharan Newman for her Catherine Levendeur Mysteries! These are so much fun to read! To be honest I had no idea she wrote anything else but after visiting her website I'll have to more thoroughly check her out!
