Each month, PW highlights spirituality and religion titles of note being released during the coming month. In May: popular pastors return with new works; a series set in Florida just might qualify as an Amish romance beach read; parents have a new resource for cultivating their children's spirituality, and the spiritual-but-not-religious crowd gets a prayer book.
