Looking for a Great Read This Lent? God Will Provide

Lent started yesterday.  I wrote this mini-review for the February print Catholic Post book page,  but I neglected to put it up on the blog before now.  Perhaps someone is out there looking for good Lenten reading, but procrastinated and needs a good suggestion.

I highly, highly recommend a wonderful new book called, God Will Provide: how God’s Bounty Opened to Saints--And 9 Ways It can Open for You, Too by Patricia Treece.

Every singe page (and I mean Every. Single. Page.) of this extraordinary volume brings fresh insight into the nature of God and what it really means to surrender completely to Him.   Treece tells stories from the saints and near-saints, including St. Therese’s sister Leonie, to a favorite of mine, Father Solanus Casey.  This book brims over with wisdom and grace.

I hope to have a Q&A with Patricia Treece learning about how this remarkable book came to be written.  In the meantime, if you’re looking for a new book to read this Lent for growth in faith, consider picking up a copy of God Will Provide.
