Out of the House of Bread: Satisfying Your Hunger for God with the Spiritual Disciplines Preston Yancey. Out of the House of Bread: Satisfying Your Hunger for God with the Spiritual Disciplines. Grand Rapids, Mich.: Zondervan, 2016. 176 pages. $18.99.
Readers who love to bake will eat up this book up. Yancey, a writer, painter, speaker and (of course) baker, begins with a recipe for homemade bread — both regular and gluten free — before jumping into the book’s three parts: “In Yourself,” “In the World” and “At the Table.” Full of conversation starters, each of the 10 chapters ends with a spiritual discipline, practice and questions for reflection.
God’s Word for Warriors: Returning Home Following Deployment Tom Seals. God’s Word for Warriors: Returning Home Following Deployment. Nashville, Tenn.: WestBow Press, 2016. 130 pages. Softcover $11.95, hardcover $28.95.
Seals, an associate professor of Bible at Lipscomb University in Nashville, served in the U.S. Marine Corps for more than eight years. This book, inspired by a class he teaches, seeks to help soldiers returning from deployment to establish a growing, deepening relationship with God, family and fellow believers.
Reconnection after deployment, Seals writes, must have a spiritual or faith component.
