Books for Your Lenten Season

Screen Shot 2017-02-26 at 6.40.36 AMA few have asked me for some suggestions for Lenten reason, Lenten preparation, and Lenten formation.

From BCP:

I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.

And, to make a right beginning of repentance, and as a mark of our mortal nature, let us now kneel before the Lord, our maker and redeemer.
