Looking for spiritual reading for Lent? Try these books of the Bible

Philip Kosloski - published on 03/10/19

The Bible offers us many passages that are perfect meditations for Lent.

Lent is a time during the liturgical year when the Church exhorts us to turn from our sinful ways to embrace a life of virtue.

This isn’t easy, of course, but some spiritual encouragement helps to make it a reality.

One way to do this is through spiritual reading, especially reading particular books of the Bible. While the entire Bible is God’s Word, certain books are especially perfect for Lent.

These books focus on our current fallen condition, but remind us of the mercy of God, urging us to trust in a God who loves us and provides for our every need.
