My bible study group is looking for book recommendations to read this Lent. I thought I’d turn to the community of readers and writers here, in case the insights are helpful to any others considering Lenten reading.
The plan will be to read a few chapters at a time, and meet once a week during Lent to participate in the Stations of the Cross and discuss the book. (Typically when we meet, we read and discuss the Sunday readings together, but we decided to try something different this Lent.) Our group includes Catholics, a Presbyterian, and someone discerning Christianity, all between the ages of 25-35.
What do you recommend? What books have you studied during Lent before that proved fruitful? Why is your recommendation especially fitting for study during Lent? Would it be accessible to Catholics and non-Catholics alike?
Share your suggestions by posting a comment below or on Facebook, or tweeting them to us at @CatholicHow. I thank you in advance, and I know the entire CatholicHow community will be grateful for your insights, too.
