Words for Lent is a lively, fresh and often adventurous approach a series of readings from Luke's gospel, with 40 readings, comments and prayers for the period of Lent.
Writers are drawn from around the world and from different traditions, including Methodist and Baptist clergy, a Zimbabwean living in Wales, a curate in Oxford and a Jesuit priest. Their different perspectives will challenge you not only to reflect again on the story of Jesus, but also to act in the light of the readings.
Words for Lent contains readings previously published in Words for Today 2010, produced by the International Bible Reading Association (IBRA), which is distributed in over 20 countries. IBRA also runs an International Fund which, through generous donations from readers, enables Christians in developing countries to translate, print and distribute Bible notes based on the same readings.
