And God Spoke by Christopher Bryan has a succinct way of expressing how we Anglicans approach the Holy Scriptures. I refer to this little book often as a reminder of the significance of our sacred story and why engaging with the Word is so important.
Bible Women: All their words and why they matter by Lindsay Hardin Freeman provides a fabulous resource/catalog of the female characters in the Bible. Prepare to be fascinated by how much/how little women speak in both the Old and New Testaments.
