Accent on Books is a friendly, neighborhood, full service, independent, bricks and mortar store. Almost a third of our store is our famous children's books section, and we have a wide selection of fiction and nonfiction, including regional books, history, biography, cooking and many other categories. We also carry cards, calendars and other sidelines.
In addition, we have one of the strongest religion and spirituality sections of any general bookstore in the Southeast, and it is largely that specialty that we feature here on our website.
Whatever your book needs, chances are we have it or can get it for you. So drop by and pay us a visit! Or contact us via mail, phone, fax or email.
From our collection of spirituality books: some recent titles of particular interest
Now in paperback: a major work from the author of the groundbreaking, "She Who Is." This time, Johnson looks at contemporary images and ideas of God as God is experienced in a variety of political, social and theological contexts. "This is one of the most important and provocative books on theology to have appeared in the U.S. since Vatican II...." -- Joseph Cunneen
A leading interpreter of Celtic Christianity, J. Philip Newell takes a broader view in his latest book, connecting a harmony in nature going back to the beginnings of the universe to the (often hidden) harmonies within ourselves. "With a book like this, religious history looks less bleak and spirituality much closer to home." -- Matthew Fox
The title of Ronald Rolheiser's new book comes from the idea that while Christians as individuals -- and the Church as a structure -- have managed to ignore or disregard many of Jesus' teachings over the past 2000 years, the commandment to remember Jesus through the Eucharist is one that they have constantly observed. Here, Rollheiser examines the many aspects of this liturgy and how it can, and should, inform the daily lives of those who celebrate it.
Last year, the National Catholic Reporter published a profile of Ronald Rolheiser.
As both a novelist and a theologian, Quaker pastor Philip Gulley has promoted values of decency, compassion and common sense in his search for a Christianity that has meaning for believers and non-believers alike. His new book calls for an evolving Christianity that replaces judgment and intolerance with inclusion and mutual understanding.
A stirring and invaluable collection of Archbishop Tutu's speeches and statements over the decades on issues including apartheid, religious tolerance, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the rights of gays and lesbians.
Here is an excerpt from the title essay, via the Huffington Post.
The language of Christianity is deep and resonant, but have the original Biblical meanings of terms such as "redemption," "sacrifice," and "Savior" been lost or distorted? Marcus Borg says yes, and his new book shows how reclaiming the original meanings of Biblical terms can lead to a new and transformative type of Christianity. Click here for a collection of material -- both text and audio -- from Marcus Borg, compiled by explorefaith.org.
Joan Chittister again turns to the Rule of Benedict in her latest work, showing how this ancient model of spirituality can be used by people of all faiths -- or no faith at all -- to help bring meaning and focus to their everyday lives. "This marvel of a book sings in the heart and makes the mind quiet with reverence, even as it instructs both of them with holy gladness." -- Phyllis Tickle
Rob Bell is pastor of the 10,000 member Mars Hill Bible Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and his new book, which embraces the idea that a loving God would never send anyone to Hell, regardless of their religion, has created a furor among his fellow evangelicals. The controversy was featured in a recent article in the New York Times.
UNC's Bart Ehrman, religious provocateur extraordinaire, has a new volume out dealing with the number of Biblical books which appear under the name of individuals other than their authors -- what he terms, "forgeries." What does this say about the authority of the Bible? He recently had a Q&A with Kirkus.
While our greatest depth and selection is in Christian theology, we also stock titles in many other disciplines and areas. We continue to be the western North Carolina source for the Book of Common Prayer and other Episcopal resources. At both website and store, you'll find a cross-cultural and multi-discipline inventory of spirituality and religion titles. Something that's rare in the dub-dub-dub world.
Classic and contemporary writings in Judaism, Islam and Buddhism, as well as other spiritual traditions, are featured in our large and varied inventory.
