Book Corner

This Lent and Easter, I looked towards the Lent Resources supplied by the Bible Reading Fellowship.

Loving My Neighbour - A Lenten Journey edited by Olivia Warburton

Daily Bible readings and reflections from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day from an exciting team of authors who explore how we can love ourselves, each other  and the world to the very end.

BRF Lent Book 2024 £9.99   

Holding Onto Hope:  40 Days of encouragement, art and reflection by Amy Boucher Pye

A hope filled illustrated gift book to lift the spirits.  Amy Boucher Pye and Leo Boucher return with a 40 day journey exploring the themes of hope and new life through vivid biblical imagery.  Holding Onto Hope can be used through Lent or during any 40-day period.


The Living Cross:  Exploring God’s gift of forgiveness and new life by Amy Boucher Pye

As we move from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day, daily reflections and prayers help us to experience the living power of the cross of Christ through biblical and modern-day stories of wrongdoing and forgiveness.  Our journey through Lent will deepen our response to God’s love and, as we allow the Holy Spirit to do his work, we will see spiritual transformation in our lives today.   


Sharing The Easter Story by Sally Welch

BRF’s 2022 Lent Book by Sally Welch explores two questions:  What is the Easter story really about, and how do we share it?

Through each week of Lent, a different aspect of the Easter story is examined, repenting, forgiving, hoping trusting, sacrificing, loving and changing.  


Opening Our Lives by Trystan Oswain Hughes

Lent is not just about giving up or taking up, but a radical opening up: the opening up of our lives to God’s transformative kingdom.

That is the challenge Trystan Oswain Hughes sets in Opening Our Lives.

Through practical daily devotions he calls on us to open our eyes to God’s presence, our ears to his call, our hearts to his love, our ways to his will, our actions to his compassion and our pain to his peace.


Celtic Lent – 40 days of devotions to Easter by David Cole

This inspirational book takes the reader through the 40 days of Lent to the celebration of Easter through the eyes and beliefs of  Celtic Christianity.  Drawing on Primary sources of pastoral letters, monastic rules and the theological teaching of the Celtic church, the author presents a different perspective on the cross of Christ and draws us to see our own life journeys with a new and transforming vision.

Wishing you all a meaningful Lent and joyous Easter.
