About the Book

For readers who want to follow a daily discipline of devotional reading, Letters of Faith Through the Seasons will provide daily doses of wisdom from the greatest minds in Christian history. Each day’s devotion will challenge readers to grow in their faith and knowledge of the Lord. In addition, readers will be encouraged to move from faith in theory to faith in practice as they experience the stimulating nature of these personal letters on such topics as the challenge of living life as a Christian, personal sufferings, and our witness within our professions. Included are letters from such giants of the faith as C. S. Lewis, John Newton, Blaise Pascal, Eugene Peterson, and more. James M. Houston has incorporated prayers, devotional thoughts, and Scriptures to create a wonderful resource to lead readers toward a more intimate relationship with their Creator.
