Outside of Books

Posted: July 9, 2008 in advocacy, books, church, equality, family, friends

In this space, I mention a lot of books that I read. And, I read a lot of books. This summer, however, I’m spending some time away from books; save Grisham’s The Brethren and Heim’s The Depth of Riches.

So, instead of books, I’m offering up some alternatives for those of you looking for something to fill your summer hours.


For music, you should pick up  “In The Name of Love” by Artists United for Africa. Artists United for Africa is a group of Christian musicians that have reinterpreted some of the more famous and better songs of U2.

Artists Include:

  1. Sunday Bloody Sunday” – Pillar
  2. Beautiful Day” – Sanctus Real
  3. 40” – Starfield
  4. Love Is Blindness” – Sixpence None the Richer
  5. Gloria” – Audio Adrenaline
  6. Grace” – Nichole Nordeman
  7. All I Want Is You” – Jars of Clay
  8. Mysterious Ways” – tobyMac & Sarah Kelly
  9. Pride (In the Name of Love)” – Delirious?
  10. One” – Tait
  11. With or Without You” – GRITS & Jadyn Maria
  12. When Love Comes to Town” – Todd Agnew
  13. Where the Streets Have No Name” – Chris Tomlin


Rochelle and I also sat down to watch a powerful documentary entitled, “For The Bible Tells Me So. The documentary chronicles 5 Christian families and the way they dealt with a child’s homosexuality. In the movie, you will hear stories from family members, thoughts for some of the today’s best theological minds, like Richard Mouw and Peter Gomes, and be dared not to shed a tear.

If you have GLBT friends or family members, this will touch close to home. You don’t have to agree with everything you see and hear, but all fair-minded, Christ-hearted people will be challenged and moved.

    Gotta hear Pillar singing “Sunday…”

    I’ve gotta find that album. Then find the money to buy it.

  2. Sean says:

    I can loan you the disc, Clayman.

  3. Casey McCollum says:

    Kasey and I just watched this…I would love to talk to you about it sometime.

    Also, let me know what you think of Heim
