There's now just 3 weeks to go until the beginning of Lent.
Lent is a great opportunity not only to fast the things that take our focus away from God, but also to explore different facets of His character, or study a section of the Bible in a new and deeper way.
If you're not sure what to read this Lent, we've put our full selection online for you to explore this year's new releases as well as tried and tested bestselling Lenten studies to help guide you through a journey of prayer and spiritual growth over the Lent season.
And what's more, we've drop all the prices! With extra discounts for those buying extra copies for study groups.
