Fasting and FeastingChristine Walters, via The Good Book Stall
This book is a good Lenten study guide and offers an unusual approach to daily study during this period. It takes the reader through from Shrove Tuesday to Easter Day in a series of wide ranging Bible readings centred on food, when normally in Lent we would think of giving up certain foods. Each day has a section from the Bible followed by a comment and prayer. The readings and prayer offer a challenge to our traditional way of thinking in terms of the way we share our resources with our immediate neighbours and further out into the world.
