THE BOOK OF JOY by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, & Douglas Abrams

This unique collaboration documents the dialogue and friendship between two of the world’s wise men. It is a sweet and funny book that includes meditation techniques and other simple ways to have a spiritual practice in the face of life’s many obstacles. But this is not just a book for people who read “spiritual” books. It is for everyone who wants to find true happiness. I highly recommend this light and uplifting read. —Jason

Evicted by Matthew Desmond

Evicted tugs at your heartstrings and inspires you to want to make a difference. Matthew Desmond, a Harvard sociologist, lived in low-income neighborhoods for three years, recording this true story of people living in the slums of Milwaukee, as they struggled (and failed) to keep a roof over their heads. Evicted engages the topic of income inequality with honest reportage and real solutions to ensure that everyone has a place to call home.  —Jason

Zealot by Reza Aslan

In the age when Rome ruled over Jerusalem, this is a riveting account of the many Jewish revolts led by self-proclaimed messiahs. Zealot respectfully challenges biblical assumptions about the historical life of the son of a carpenter from the small town of Nazareth, who became a miracle worker and anti-establishment revolutionary. An essential read for both skeptics and believers.
