Lent Books Ten Top Choices for 2023

Lent is a tradition marked by Christians today as a period of preparation for the Easter celebration. It is considered to be a time for reflection, and repentance while intentionally seeking God. Traditionally this was through prayer and fasting, now it may be more through creating the space to read, listen, and reflect on God’s word. If this is the case and you are practising Lent, maybe for the first time, I have a great choice of Lent books. In this selection there is something for everyone. There is a book to follow for family devotions and several for Bible students. I’ve also included some daily devotionals, and even one with messy ideas for the creatives among us!

The Pilgrim by Joy Margetts

A wonderful second novel from the author of ‘The Healing – Will a monk’s habit help unlock his identity’. This book is actually a prequel to ‘The Healing’ although the story does stand alone. The series is set in medieval times among the abbeys and holy sites of Wales. One of the supporting characters from ‘The Healing’ becomes the central figure in this story – although to begin with we may find it hard to recognize him! If you’ve never read any Christian historical fiction before then The Pilgrim by Joy Margetts is a great place to start.

In reading the psalms, we find we can identify with the writer as so often we share some of the same thoughts and feelings. We can relate to the psalmist’s own journey in verse, from despair to hope, from fear to safety, from anguish to comfort, as they lead us into prayer, and peaceful meditation.
