Paraclete Press E-Subscriptions for Lent

Paraclete Press, the publisher of several books that I’ve reviewed here, has two e-subscriptions ($9.99 each) for the Lenten season.

God for Us: Discovering the Meaning of Lent and Easter, is edited by Greg Pennoyer and Gregory Wolfe. The writers contributing to the daily emailing include Scott Cairns, Luci Shaw, Kathleen Norris, James Calvin Schaap, and Richard Rohr, among many others. There is also a companion book of the same time, edited by Gregory Wolfe.

According to Your Mercy: Praying with the Psalms from Ash Wednesday to Easter is by Father Martin Shannon (and it, too, has a companion book with the same title). As the title implies, the newsletter and the book use the psalms to explore and illuminate the days of the Lenten season.  Father Shannon is an Episcopal priest and member of the Community of Jesus, an ecumenical Benedictine community on Cape Cod, Mass., where he lives with his family. He received as M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in Liturgical Studies from the Catholic University of America.

The books I’ve reviewed that are published by Paraclete Press include A Well of Wonder: Essays and The Arts and the Christian Imagination, both by Clyde Kilby; All Shall Be Well: A Spiritual Journal and Love Never Fails, by Hilda St. Clair (the review for Love Never Fails will be published tomorrow); and The Paraclete Poetry Anthology 2005-2016, edited by Mark Burrows.
