The Lent for Everyone Collection comprises three volumes of Lenten lectionary resources. Utilizing N.T. Wright’s For Everyone Bible translation, this collection covers the three years of the Revised Common Lectionary. Originally begun as a project to encourage Lenten reading in the diocese of Durham, England, the volumes in this collection have become popular resources for a much broader Christian audience. Wright’s accessible biblical translations and thoughtful reflections and prayers make this collection a valuable resource for getting the most out of the Lenten season.
Also check out the N.T. Wright Collection, containing 48 of Wright’s works.

This book gently takes the reader through the designated lectionary readings for every day of Lent and Easter. Each Bible reading is followed by a reflection and prayer that will help the readers ponder the relevance of Matthew’s Gospel for their own lives.
Suitable for both individual and group study and reflection, Lent for Everyone: Matthew Year A will allow readers to make Matthew’s Gospel their own, thoughtfully and prayerfully, through the Lenten season.
The trouble is that it is so good that the reader will find it hard to stop at the end of each day’s reflection, but will want to read on.

This volume focuses on the Gospel of Mark, taking the reader through the designated lectionary readings for every day of Lent and Easter. The New Testament passages are done by N.T. Wright, and each extract is followed by a freshly written reflection and a prayer that will encourage readers to ponder the relevance of Mark’s Gospel for their own lives.
Lent for Everyone: Mark Year B is an ideal study companion that will help to make Lent a period of rich discovery and growth for both individuals and groups.
Like Mark’s Gospel, Wright’s pace gradually builds up, a massive locomotive steaming towards the ‘perfect storm’ of Holy Week and Easter, demanding a commitment costing not less than everything: ‘We cannot be Easter people if we are not first Good Friday people and then Holy Saturday people.’ A fitting end; and beginning.

The first in a successful three-volume collection to encourage Lenten reading, Lent for Everyone: Luke Year C contains a reading for each day of Lent, chosen from Luke’s Gospel, as well as a reflection by N.T. Wright to deepen readers’ understanding of the Gospel and its relevance to their lives.
Well worth purchasing, especially since there is enough material here to keep most people going long after Lent.
