Lenten Book Study 2022

Martin Thornton's The Purple Headed Mountain


By Fr. Mark Perkins


Editor's Note: See Part 2 here, Part 3 here, Part 4 here, Part 5 here, and Part 6 here.


Last night the Lenten Book Study for 2022 at St. Alban's Oviedo kicked off. We are studying The Purple Headed Mountain by Fr. Martin Thornton, and I introduced Fr. Thornton's three themes of Prayer, Penitence, and Creation. I also gave a basic overview of the Lenten disciplines of fasting, almsgiving, and prayer oriented around an Anglican Rule of Life.


If you wish to read along with us, you can purchase a beautiful edition from Akenside Press featuring a helpful new introduction written by Fr. Matthew Dallman. Fr. Dallman will also be joining us for a guest lecture during Lent.


In addition to the audio (below), you can also check out the introductory handout, which includes the reading guide for the prefatory material and chapter 1.
