Summer Reading List

The Forgotten Art of Slowing Down: Kristin Kellen’s Summer Reading Recommendations

Post Icon

As summer begins, we want to help you craft the perfect Summer Reading List. We asked Southeastern Seminary professors what books they would recommend, and we’ll share their recommendations in coming weeks.

Today, Kristin Kellen recommends two books for your summer reading list.

"We've forgotten the art of slowing down and meditating on God's Word and His works."

Christian Meditation in Clinical Practice: A Four-Step Model and Workbook for Therapists and Clients
by Joshua J. Knabb (IVP, 2021)

It seems like in this world of busyness, we’ve forgotten the art of slowing down and meditating on God’s Word and His works. While this book, like the title suggests, is more for counselors and therapists, there are some fantastic reminders for us as believers as well as many practical meditation exercises. These range from the contemplative to the imaginary. The reader doesn’t have to be a counselor to use this resource.

Jesus and Gender: Living as Brothers and Sisters in Christ
by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Eric Schumacher (Kirkdale, 2022)

In this book, the authors explore with clarity and nuance what it means to live and cooperate together as brothers and sisters in Christ. Though not necessarily written to combat all the “gender wars” out there at the moment, I found this book so refreshing as a female Christian who wants to live in proper partnership with my brothers. Highly recommended.
