Experience the liturgical seasons of Lent, Holy Week, and Eastertide in the company of poets and novelists from across the centuries. 

This third literary guide compiled by Sarah Arthur completes the church calendar with daily and weekly readings for Lent and Easter from classic and contemporary literature. New voices such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Benjam’n Alire S‡enz join well-loved classics by Dostoevsky, Rossetti, and Eliot. Light in the darkness, illuminating the soul. This rich anthology will draw you deeper into God’s presence through the medium of the imagination. 

Sarah Arthur

Sarah Arthur is a fun-loving speaker and the author of ten books ranging from popular devotionals to serious engagement with theology and literature. A graduate of Wheaton College and Duke Divinity School, she speaks around the country on the role of imagination and narrative in spiritual formation. She is the editor-curator of Paraclete Press's At the Still Point: A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time (2011) and Light Upon Light: A Literary Guide to Prayer for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany (2014). When she isn't chasing two small boys around the house, Sarah can be found gardening, writing young adult novels, and volunteering in youth ministry at Sycamore Creek United Methodist Church in Lansing, MI, where her husband, Tom, is pastor. www.saraharthur.com

"A rich feast." — Lauren F. Winner, author of Still

"I may just be a bit smitten with this book." — Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts

"What a delight, to find so extraordinary a collection." — Kathleen Norris, author of Dakota and Cloister Walk

"A thing of beauty!" — the late Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours

"A creative re-envisioning of the traditional devotional." — IMAGE Journal

"Once again, Sarah Arthur has provided rich and enriching resources for the recovery of a life of prayer. More difficult, perhaps, than any other truth we may glimpse in the midst of what we know as ’the time being,’ is the efficacy of penitential prayer; most elusive is the ’bright sorrow’ that couples our repentance with joy. With this book, many will find their way to this inestimable blessing." — Scott Cairns, Author of Slow Pilgrim: The Collected Poems
