Reading is one of the most important activities that you can encourage your children to do. It’s entertaining, thought provoking,

and absolutely critical to success later in life.

Books in the

Library for Peace

to Talk About:

STILLNESS SPEAKS.jpg

Tolle illuminates the fundamental elements of his teaching, addressing the needs of the modern seeker by drawing from all spiritual traditions. At the core of the book is what the author calls “the state of presence,” a living in the ‘now’ that is both intensely inspirational and practical.

MEETING JESUS AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME.j

Now Marcus Borg addresses the yearnings of those who want a fully contemporary faith that welcomes rather than oppresses our critical intelligence and openness to the best of historical scholarship.
