Divided into eight themes central to the Christian faith—such as hope, joy, surrender, and rest—this devotional draws from the writings of a number of bestselling and beloved authors of faith, including C.S. Lewis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King Jr., Jennie Allen, Brennan Manning, and more. Partnered with daily Scripture reading, thought-provoking journal prompts, and practical action steps to encourage readers toward a more intentional faith lifestyle, this 40-day resource is the ideal companion for walking through the seasons of Lent.

In their debut book, Hearing God Speak: A 52-Week Interactive Enneagram Devotional (2/9/21, Ink & Willow Trade Paper), Eve Annunziato and Jackie Brewster combine the Enneagram system with biblical truth in order to help readers better understand themselves and other people while guiding them toward a deeper relationship with God. No matter one’s number, readers will learn to identify patterns of behavior that drive their decisions and uncover their deepest thoughts, unconscious motivations, and personality traits—all while discovering how God communicates directly and uniquely to them.
