Though Easter (like Christmas) is often trivialized by the culture at large, it is still the high point of the religious calendar for millions of people around the world. And for most of them, there can be no Easter without Lent, the season that leads up to it. A time for self-denial, soul-searching, and spiritual preparation, Lent is traditionally observed by daily reading and reflection. This collection will satisfy the growing hunger for meaningful and accessible devotions. Culled from the wealth of twenty centuries, the selections in Bread and Wine are ecumenical in scope, and represent the best classic and contemporary Christian writers. Includes more than seventy Lenten and Easter readings by Alexander Stuart Baillie, Alfred Kazin, Alister E. McGrath, Amy Carmichael, Barbara Brown Taylor, Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, Blaise Pascal, Brennan Manning, C. S. Lewis, Christina Rossetti, Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt, Clarence Jordan, Dag Hammarskjold, Dale Aukerman, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Dorothee Soelle, Dorothy Day, Dorothy Sayers, Dylan Thomas, E.

This would probably be appropriate reading for #GoodFriday since I found it searching for Easter books. For my part, I‘m happy to have this day off, even though I will just be staying home. Working from home in this time is stressful so I‘m grateful for the break. #BloomingBibliophiles

One of my annual Lenten disciplines. The book, not the coffee. 😏

The Lent portion was great. The Easter portion left something to be desired.

Happy Easter, my beautiful friends. May this Easter season and always be full of love for all of you. 💖 Just thought I‘d share a photo of what my friends and I have been working on pretty much nonstop this last week, resulting in my semi-absence from Litsy! (Playing the Blessed Mother requires a ton of emotional-restoration-napping.) #livingstations2018 #churchlife #schoolfriendsareforeverfriends #mychurchistheprettiest

Stunning quote from John Stott from tonight's Lenten reading. Amen and amen.
