Easter 2022 issue

Book Corner

This year, Ash Wednesday falls on the 2nd March, just over a month away, as I write this. How quickly it seems to have come round this year. As usual, I present a selection of books for personal reflection or giving.

Embracing Justice by Isabelle Hanley.  The Archbishop Of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2022

In the Archbishop Of Canterbury’s Lent Book for 2022, Isabelle Hanley invites us on an exhilarating journey through Scripture to discover how we, as churches, communities and individual Christians, can seek and practice justice even when enmeshed in such a fractured world. Full of practical encouragement, Embracing Justice brilliantly weaves together biblical texts, diverse voices, contemporary stories, and personal and group meditations to reveal liberating and imaginative ways in which we may grow in discipleship – and more fully reflect the justice, mercy and compassion of Christ in our lives.

Sharing The Easter Story: From Reading to Living the Gospel by Sally Welch

In this year’s Bible Reading Fellowship’s Lent Book Sally Welch explores two questions; what is the Easter story really about, and how do we share it? Through each week in Lent, a different aspect of the Easter story is examined, repenting, changing, hoping, trusting, forgiving, loving and sacrificing. Within each week, the days are focused on what we need to do in order to share the story: listening, understanding, reflecting, living, telling, sharing and becoming.  Each day offers a Bible passage, followed by a reflection and prayer activity.

Preparing for Easter:  Fifty Devotional Readings by C. S. Lewis

Preparing for Easter is a concise, handy companion for the faithful of all Christian traditions and the curious to help them deepen their knowledge and consideration of this holy season – a time of reflection as we consider Jesus’ sacrifice and his joyous rise from the dead. Carefully curated, each selection in Preparing for Easter draws on a major theme in Lewis’ writings on the Christian life, as well as others that consider why we can have confident faith in what happened on the cross.
