Good books for Lent

In another entry, the book The Heresy of Formlessness by Martin Mosebach came up.  I warmly recommend it.  I mentioned that book together with some others back in December.

    The Lent my wife and I first met, we read Scott Hahn’s reflection book. It was a good way to get to know each other on a deeper level and grow more spiritually. I would say it was instrumental in our discernment process.

    Best book I have read so far for Lent.
    (20 plus years)
    The Passion and Death of our Lord Jesus Christ
    Archbishop Alban Goodier S.J.

    I never saw Jesus, True man ,and True God the way this gifted author brings Him out.
    My copy is older somewhere between 1900 and 1950 no date

    Long Live Christ The King

    Amazon generously offers a 1.90 buck gift card if you trade it in.

    The Heresy of Formlessness appears to be in stock at booksforcatholics.com. ISBN 978-1-586171278

  9. Henry Edwards says:

    Each of the last two books in Fr. Z’s list is in a class of its own–Guardini on the life of Christ, and Vonier on Eucharistic doctrine. I know of nothing comparable to either.

  10. Pete Morrell says:

    Anything by Solange Hertz has been excellent regarding Christ the King. A very nice primer of hers on personal sanctity is Sin Revisited.

    Puritan’s Empire by Charles Coulombs is an eye opening summary of American history.

    And of course I cannot recommend highly enough the treasure trove of free online books at:

  11. Quanah says:

    God or Nothing and The Noonday Devil are incredibly reflective and thought-provoking. I will soon begin In Sinu Jesu and about halfway through Lent will begin Acedia and Its Discontents.

    I’ve read Cardinal Sara’s book, and I can highly recommend it.
