Spiritual Envy by Michael Krasny
Provides direction for believers and non-believers on understanding their own questions about faith, religion, God, and human responsibility.
Spiritual Envy by Michael Krasny
As the host of one of National Public Radio’s most popular interview programs, Michael Krasny has spent decades leading conversations on every imaginable topic and discussing life’s most important questions with the foremost thinkers of our time. Now he brings his wide-ranging knowledge and perceptive intelligence to a thoughtful and thought-provoking exploration of belief; and lack of belief. Many books and pundits advocate for a specific God, while others adamantly declare there is no God. Yet these strident viewpoints often speak right past each other, rarely convincing anyone but the already convinced. In — Spiritual Envy — Krasny helps believers and nonbelievers alike understand their own questions about faith and religion, about God and human responsibility. Krasny challenges each of us to look closely at faith and its power, and to examine the positive and negative aspects of religion as expressed in culture, literature, and human relationships. Personal and universal, timely and timeless, this is a deeply wise yet warmly welcoming conversation, an invitation to ask one’s own questions; no matter how inconclusive the answers.
Holy Envy by Barbara Brown Taylor
The renowned Christian preacher and New York Times bestselling author of An Altar in the World recounts her moving discoveries of finding the sacred in unexpected places while teaching world religions to undergraduates in Baptist-saturated rural Georgia, revealing how God delights in confounding our expectations. Christians are taught that God is everywhere--a tenet that is central to Barbara Brown Taylor's life and faith. In Holy Envy, she continues her spiritual journey, contemplating the myriad ways she encountered God while exploring other faiths with her students in the classroom, and on field trips to diverse places of worship. Both she and her students ponder how the knowledge and insights they have gained raise important questions about belief, and explore how different practices relate to their own faith. Inspired by this intellectual and spiritual quest, Barbara turns once again to the Bible for guidance, to see what secrets lay buried there. Throughout Holy Envy, Barbara weaves together stories from her classroom with reflections on how her own spiritual journey has been challenged and renewed by connecting with people of other traditions--and by meeting God in them. At the heart of her odyssey is her trust that it is God who pushes her beyond her comfortable boundaries and calls us to "disown" our privatised versions of the divine--a change that ultimately deepens her relationship with both the world and with God, and ours.
Embracing Envy by Josh Gressel
Envy is a universal emotion, yet people are very reluctant to confess their envy of another. In Embracing Envy, Josh Gressel suggests it is our shame at admitting we feel inferior to another person that keeps envy so hidden. Through interviews with everyday people, reviews of mainstream psychological research, and lessons from wisdom literature, this book delves into how envy can be seen as meaningful and useful in our daily lives.
The anointing, blessings and success do not only attract friends, admirers and allies but enemies as well. They invite hostility from envious people who would do anything to disrupt your joy and sense of fulfilment. The anointing does not attract harmless and beautiful butterflies but stinging and noisy bees. It draws your way the attention of enemies who have the capacity to hurt you like bees. It does not attract nice people to decorate you with praise and make you feel good. This book is a timely tool in the hands of those who are obedient to God’s will and are facing envy and opposition from the people around them. Don’t be surprised if doing the will of God produces envy in others. Everybody will not applaud you for doing the right thing and for producing great results. In this season of the “Love Revolution” you are likely to think that everyone loves you and take things for granted. Walking in love but at the same time protecting yourself from the envy of those who seek to destroy you is a balance you must attain.

He makes something else radiantly clear: only with, through, and in Christ can we conquer the evil that threatens our lives. The reader of this book will find extremely helpful spiritual direction for conquering the enemies of our souls." Sandy Willson, Senior Pastor Second Presbyterian Church Memphis, Tennessee This is the meatiest, most accessible, and most spiritually challenging book I have ever seen on the seven deadly sins.
