Lent reading for individuals and groups

Each year, BRF publishes a Lent book of readings from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. In addition, we have titles of readings or reflections that can be used occasionally during Lent.

These can help to draw us back to the truths of Easter, as well as providing an opportunity to meet together with others in reading groups.

To find out more about each title, including reviews and sample text, please click on more info below.

Some of our Lent titles are available as downloads - downloads or eBooks.

Towards Jerusalem

Towards Jerusalem

A pilgrim's regress and progress to God's Holy City Steve Brady £7.99

God has an agenda for cities. Steve Brady is convinced of it. The Bible is full of significant cities and the biblical story is full of imagery of cities-culminating in God's 'holy city', birthed in and through his people. Towards Jerusalem is a unique Lent book, a call to live for a vision bigger than ourselves, marching to a different drumbeat towards 'Zion', God's New Jerusalem and all that this means in transformative terms for today's Christian believer.

Dust and Glory

Dust and Glory

Daily Bible readings from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day David Runcorn £7.99

BRF's 2016 Lent book is designed as a companion for thoughtful and curious travellers, with a daily Bible verse or short passage leading into reflection on some aspect of human life and faith. Written by bestselling author and respected spiritual guide David Runcorn, the book's approach is exploratory rather than prescriptive, provoking questions rather than offering answers. It does not assume too much Bible knowledge, so that the style feels welcoming to those on the edge of committed faith or church, as well as BRF's to established Lent book audience.

When You Pray

When You Pray

Daily Bible reflections for Lent and Easter on the Lord's Prayer Joanna Collicutt Currently out of print £7.99

In these Bible readings for Lent and Easter, Joanna Collicutt shows how growing as a Christian is rooted in the prayer Jesus gave us. As we pray the Lord's Prayer, we express our relationship with God, absorb gospel values and are also motivated to live them out. As we pray to the Father, in union with the Son, through the power of the Spirit, so we begin to take on the character of Christ. The Holy Week readings encourage us to pause, watch and wait at this special season; commentary is kept to a minimum and we spend time reflecting, in the light of the Lord's Prayer, on Luke's description of Christ's passion and resurrection. Includes questions for group discussion.
