Lent 2015 – Recommended Books to Read and Discuss

January 29, 2015 — 2 Comments

 

Lent is almost upon us again …

(Ash Wednesday is Feb 18…)

I’ve been asked a few times recently to recommend some books on Lenten themes that churches might read and discuss this year during Lent. And since, I think reading and discussing books together is an important practice for the health and well-being of churches, here are 10 new-ish books that would be appropriate for reading and discussion during Lent.  I offer each one with a brief explanation of why I have included it.

NOTE: I’m not recommending that any church or individual should read ALL of these books during Lent, but wanted to offer a range of options so that churches might have some flexibility in picking a book to read and discuss during Lent.

 

 

The Grand Paradox: The Messiness of Life, the Mystery of God and the Necessity of Faith

By Ken Wytsma

Lent is a season of darkness, where we learn to acknowledge our doubt and rest in our faith in Christ. Ken Wytsma’s new book is an excellent guide for this journey, speaking honestly about the challenges that we will inevitably face, and learning to trust in a God that is sovereign in the face of our uncertainty and pain.
