We only have few days before the sacred season is over and Jesus will be resurrected. In these remaining days of Lent, we should uplift our games and do our part as Christians to self-reflect and honor this holy season. Jesus went through a lot of agonies in order to save humankind from sin; thus, even when multiple generations have passed, we should strengthen our faith, be thankful, and be respectful to Him. However, our salvation wouldn’t be possible without God the Father, who brought His son to the world, and the Holy Trinity.
Moreover, literature has been always there to cater to our spiritual needs. There are many Christian books that center on Christian theology, Christian devotion, Christian allegory, and more. All of these kinds of books aim to help everyone to rebuild our spirituality, reflect on our actions, answer to His calls, recognize His ways, and get closer to Him. Thus, the titles below are among the most ideal books to read and reflect in these sacred days.
