Running with Joy
Ryan Hall
Harvest House Publishers, January 2011
From the fastest American-born marathoner of all time, here is an intimate, day-by-day account of what it takes—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—to be one of the best in the world. This journal chronicles Ryan Hall’s 14-week preparation for the 2010 Boston Marathon, providing practical insights into the daily regimen of someone training at the absolute peak of human performance. It also reveals the spiritual journey of an elite athlete who is a follower of Jesus Christ. Readers will discover how Ryan deals with nagging injuries and illness, bad weather, disappointing workouts, and a slavish focus on results that can take the fun out of running. Ryan runs 140 miles a week, often at altitude and a blistering pace. Yet millions of everyday runners will identify with and appreciate his intentional return to running with joy and his lifelong goal of glorifying Christ on and off the racecourse.

Rock-A My Soul
David Nantais
Liturgical Press, February 2011
Few styles of music engage the human body as much as rock and roll. From toe tapping to air guitar, listening to rock music requires attention to the present moment and can help the listener reclaim a sense of identity as a creature of God. Rock music and organized religion have suffered a tense relationship for over sixty years but what if rock music can actually aid one's religious faith and spiritual life? Perhaps it's time to bury the hatchet and start rocking your religion!
