For daily spiritual reading during Lent I recommend All Shall Be Well: Readings for Lent and Easter. This powerful volume from Orbis Books includes voices who speak for peace, caring for the needy, and uplifting the weak. The table of contents, with writers both classic (Howard Thurman) and contemporary (Mary Lou Kownacki), had me quite excited. The writing is consistently strong, and there is variety and interest throughout the selections. In particular I enjoyed the words of Julia Alvarez, Dorothy Day, Virgil Elizondo, and Daniel Berrigan. The selections are numbered but not dated, since the dates for Lent vary; this thoughtful format will make the book easier to use year after year. All Shall Be Well makes an inspiring and uplifting companion.
Beautiful book that was perfect for Lent. There is a reading for every day for Lent (or you can just read it at your leisure). The readings are very appropriate and are authored by a wide variety of individuals. I would highly recommend this book.
I gave as gift; receiver is enjoying it
Very fine spiritual writers represented; selections well written. Inspiring. And I like that the editors packaged selections pertinent to both Lent and Easter time.
