Read and Learn -- What are you looking for?

Yesterday, a member blogger, Carol Howard Merritt at Tribal Church wrote about books that the religious publishing industry isn't publishing that she thinks they need to. Here is one paragraph from her post:

And so, I make my plea to my progressive publishing friends. Don’t dismiss those books that are for regular people. As pastors, we need to be able to hand a good book to intelligent parishioners who just might be starting out with this whole church thing. I also get requests for daily devotional books, marriage books, basic Bible books, finance books from a Christian perspectice—as progressives, we have things to say about ordinary life, and the people in the pews are really wanting to hear it.
So, I will rephrase her closing question. What books do you wish existed?
