Books for Lent

Here is the book list I have compiled for this Lent. I prayerfully chose this list in the hope that it would convict me where I am comfortable, comfort me where I am hurt, and draw me closer to the person of Jesus Christ. I will be writing reviews as I make my way through.

What’s on your reading list this Lent?


  1. I was just thinking about trying to find a book to read during Lent. Thanks for the ideas. Now I just have to choose one to read! That will be the hard part!

  2. I'll be reading two books by the pope. First, his Spirit of the Liturgy, which is highly recommended by my pastor, and which our book club will read later in the spring; and second, Jesus of Nazareth part 2. I'm really looking forward to these!

  3. Hi Bethany,
    I just bought One Thousand Gifts (at your suggestion). I am also in a season of fasting for my religion (Baha'i Faith, Fast is from March 2 to 20). I love that it coincides (generally) with the Christian season of Lent. How nice to benefit from the inspiring thoughts of others at this time.
    Love your blog and your insights,

  4. I am reading "Jesus the Christ" by James E. Talmage. While The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints doesn't have a Lent season, I often read a special book before our family celebrates Easter. Actually, I have really enjoyed following yours and Charming the Birds From the Trees Lenten cleaning lists before Easter.

  5. Hmm, I don't see a book list. Am I doing something wrong?

  6. Maryann - It's an Amazon widget. Perhaps your internet browser is not set up to support it?

  7. Yes, it must be something like that, because I can see it fine here on my husband's computer. And I can finally see your library on here too! Will have to ask DH to do look at the computer I use. Thanks.
