 +  * [[https://amzn.to/3qQs9eI|Jesus, Bread, and Chocolate: Crafting a Handmade Faith in a Mass-Market World]] by John J. Thompson. Only 99 cents on Kindle. Recommended by Kenny Humphries. "This book is not a great theological masterpiece, but I come back to its principal idea often. Recipes empower the novice to produce consistency, which is good if you get a job making hamburger buns.  Artisan Bakers sometimes produce a heavy marbled rye with crisp crust and moist centers and other times flaky croissants, but it's messy, time intensive, complicated, with lots of moments looking at the half-finished product with faith in the outcome... with INCONSISTENT results.  Discipleship is the same. Recipes can be helpful, but I need not fear the heavy marbled rye, or that crazy process that produces it. God doesn't need us all to be hamburger buns."
