To Seek and To Save
Daily Reflections on the Road to the Cross by Sinclair Ferguson
Sinclair Ferguson is a Scottish Presbyterian theologian who pastors a PCA church in South Carolina and teaches at Reformed Theological Seminary.

The Word in the Wilderness
A Poem a Day for Lent and Easter by Malcolm Guite
If you are familiar with Guite's Advent devotional, this book is very similar. For each day of Lent, the author selects a poem—about a third of them being his own—and provides a 2-3 page analysis and theological reflection on each poem.
This book will appeal to those who are looking for a literary or poetic devotional, while still providing a very good, spiritual resource.
