Lent and Easter 2021 issue

Book Corner

With Ash Wednesday having just appeared on the horizon on 17th February, here are a few suggestions for your Lenten Reading and Meditation.

Living His Story; Revealing the Extraordinary Love Of God in Ordinary Ways by Hannah Steele.

This is the Archbishop Of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2021.

How can we convey the love of God to our neighbours in a post-Christian world that has largely forgotten the gospel of Jesus Christ? In Living His Story, Hannah Steele uncovers liberating and practical ways of sharing the gospel story afresh. With warmth and encouragement, she shows us how we can live Jesus’ story in our own lives simply by being the people God made us and allowing people to be drawn to him through our natural gifts. Living His Story is a Lent devotional that will change the way you think about evangelism, show how ideally suited it is for the world we live in and fill you with confidence in sharing God’s love with the people around you. Set out in six sessions to take you through Lent, each chapter can be used as a single study for individuals or small groups to prepare for Easter. It will help you find space to see evangelism from a new practical perspective.

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.

Thy Will Be Done:  The 2021 Lent Book by Stephen Cherry

At times of change, uncertainty and widespread anxiety, we need to discover again the freshness of our most familiar spiritual resources.  Stephen Cherry’s Lent Book does exactly this by inviting the reader to immerse themselves in the most central, important and iconic of Christian prayers – The Lord’s Prayer.  Mining the tradition for wisdom and insight, and finding inspiration in the theologians of the past such as St Paul, Gregory of Nyssa, John Calvin, but also more contemporary voices such as Evelyn Underhill, Simone Weil, and Michelle Obama, Thy Will Be Done presents the comforts and challenges of the prayer in 36 short chapters.
