Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
‘Song of Solomon…profoundly changed my life’ Marlon James
Macon ‘Milkman’ Dead was born shortly after a neighbourhood eccentric hurled himself off a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight. For the rest of his life he, too, will be trying to fly.
In 1930s America Macon learns about the tyranny of white society from his friend Guitar, though he is more concerned with escaping the familial tyranny of his own father. So while Guitar joins a terrorist group Macon goes home to the South, lured by tales of buried family treasure. But his odyssey back home and a deadly confrontation with Guitar leads to the discovery of something infinitely more valuable than gold: his past and the origins of his true self.

Emma (Penguin Classics) by Jane Austen
‘Her masterpiece, mixing the sparkle of her early books with a deep sensibility’ Robert McCrum, Observer
Although described by Jane Austen as a character ‘whom no one but myself will much like’, the irrepressible Emma Woodhouse is one of her most beloved heroines. Clever, rich and beautiful, she sees no need for marriage, but loves interfering in the romantic lives of others, until her matchmaking plans unravel, with consequences that she never expected. Jane Austen’s novel of youthful exuberance and gradual self-knowledge is a brilliant, sparkling comic masterpiece.

When God Whispers Your Name Max Lucado
Are you ready to hope again? Are you ready to let go of doubt and sorrow? Just listen carefully. God is whispering your name.
Somewhere, between the pages of this book and the pages of your heart, God is speaking. And He is calling you by name.
Maybe that’s hard to believe. Maybe you just can’t imagine that the One who made it all thinks of you that personally — that He keeps your name on His heart and lips.
But it’s true. In the Bible and in the circumstances of your life, He whispers your name lovingly. Tenderly. Patiently but persistently. Let these stories remind you of the God who knows your name.
Some of the stories are from the Bible. Some are drawn from everyday life. Most are about people who are lost … or weary … or discouraged — just like you may be. If you let them, they will tell the story of your life. And the story of a God who speaks into your situation.
So listen closely as you turn these pages. Listen for the Father’s gentle whisper that can erase your doubt, your sorrow, your weariness, your despair.
It really is your name that you hear, and the Voice that calls is more loving that your ever dared dream. Listen. And learn to hope again.
Winning the Battle of Destiny By Dr. Ladi Ogabo
This book needs to be read by anyone who desperately desires a change of situations in his/her life
“Winning the battles of destiny: Conquering the foundational strongholds,” should be instinctively attractive to any knowledgeable Christian. I mean those Christians who are not bogged down by humanistic philosophy of disputation or drowning in the bliss ignorance of episcopal feeding bottles thrust into their throats with their willing accomplice. An informed Christian most likely filled with the Holy Ghost and led by the Holy Spirit (Roman 8:14) will be attuned with nearly every word written in the handy book.
The simplicity of the narrative, yet with the profundity of in-depth analysis and real-life occurrences with relevant biblical references, makes the book very interesting to read. Nothing is complicated even when the truth is not colored with any foreign garb to make it acceptable. It is unapologetically truthful.

The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence
Brother Lawrence was a man of humble beginnings who discovered the greatest secret of living in the kingdom of God here on earth. It is the art of “practicing the presence of God in one single act that does not end.” He often stated that it is God who paints Himself in the depths of our souls. We must merely open our hearts to receive Him and His loving presence.
As a humble cook, Brother Lawrence learned an important lesson through each daily chore: The time he spent in communion with the Lord should be the same, whether he was bustling around in the kitchen—with several people asking questions at the same time—or on his knees in prayer. He learned to cultivate the deep presence of God so thoroughly in his own heart that he was able to joyfully exclaim, “I am doing now what I will do for all eternity. I am blessing God, praising Him, adoring Him, and loving Him with all my heart.”
This unparalleled classic has given both blessing and instruction to those who can be content with nothing less than knowing God in all His majesty and feeling His loving presence throughout each simple day.

Breaking Free from Fear: How to Find Peace for Your Anxious Heart by Maria Furlough
The Bible calls us to not be afraid, and of course we all want to live without fear. But how?
Using her own story as a catalyst, Maria Furlough shows you how to overcome fear for good. She calls you to make a list of your fears, to choose to bring those fears to God rather than acting on them, and to trust God with the future. She shows how when we give God full control over our lives, choosing his sovereignty over our own ability, we can break the cycle of fear, grow through suffering, and trust God to fulfill his promises of protection and peace.
The Last Lecture
A lot of professors give talks titled ‘The Last Lecture’. Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy?
When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn’t have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave, ‘Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams’, wasn’t about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because time is all you have and you may find one day that you have less than you think). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.
In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humour, inspiration, and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

Ecstasy: Understanding the Psychology of Joy
THE RENOWNED JUNGIAN PSYCHOLOGIST AND AUTHOR OF ‘TRANSFORMATION’ AND ‘OWNING YOUR OWN SHADOW’ BRINGS THE HIDDEN GIFT OF ECSTASY BACK INTO OUR LIVES.
Robert A. Johnson has taken tens of thousands of readers on spiritual and psychological journeys towards inner transformation. In ‘Ecstasy’, he reconnects with the powerful and life-changing ecstatic element that lies dormant – but long-repressed – within us.
Ecstasy was once considered a divine gift, Johnson tells us, one that could lift mortals out of ordinary reality and into higher world. But because Western culture has systematically repressed this ecstatic human impulse, we are unable to truly experience its transformative power.
Johnson penetrates the surface of modern life to reveal the ancient dynamics of our humanity, pointing out practical means for achieving a healthy expression of our true inner selves. Through dreams, rituals, and celebrations, he shows us how to return to these original life-giving principles and restore inner harmony.
