In this week's Disciplines meditations, Joe E. Pennel Jr. writes, "The love of Christ continues to call us to look at each other with love. With all of our painful problems in the church and culture, we need to gaze at one another with forgiveness and grace. When we do this, we are living out the image of the Suffering Servant, despised and rejected."

Our Story

Located in Nashville, Tennessee, Upper Room Books is a publishing imprint of The Upper Room, a global ministry dedicated to supporting the spiritual formation of Christians seeking to know and experience God more fully. Upper Room Books resources encourage prayer and daily disciplines that lead to a deeper relationship with God. In addition to Upper Room Books, The Upper Room has two other publishing imprints: Fresh Air Books and Discipleship Resources. Fresh Air Books are for spiritually curious people who are interested in the relevance of faith in our culture. Discipleship Resources produces leadership and stewardship resources directed primarily to United Methodist churches. Since 1935, The Upper Room has been “where the world meets to pray.” Our daily devotional guide is a prayer resource for more than 2.5 million people in 100 countries and forty languages. Our books extend the options for daily prayer with meditations, reflections on scripture, memoirs, and other resources for spiritual development. Our best-selling devotional guide Upper Room Disciplines along with our classic Guides to Prayer provide rich day-to-day encounters with spiritual writings from across the centuries. Upper Room Books is known for these titles and others that offer unique direction for spiritual growth and relationship to God. Small-group formational resources such as the Companions in Christ series and The Workbook of Living Prayer have brought millions of people together in community with one another and with the living Christ. We believe that God uses our relationships to enhance our spiritual growth, and our books draw us together in communities of prayer and devotion.

Prepare for Pentecost with this free reflection from Upper Room Books.
At almost 92, Dr. Richard Morgan has given us a moving and masterful book in which he shares insights, wisdom, and resilience gleaned from a life lived fully and generously. Light of Setting Suns: Reflections on Realities and Mysteries at Ninety Years of Life, while written by one of our “oldest old,” is a book for all ages that is ripe with personal stories and lessons to help each of us age gracefully.

We need some good news, and there is no better news than the message of Easter. And yet, the weeks leading up to the celebration are often pretty gloomy.

Two Upper Room Books, written by married couple Kristen and Max Vincent, remind us that it’s okay to smile and share joy even during the 40 days of Lent. In addition to print, both of these titles are available in eBook formats, so you can start reading today.
“Ask God for help. Remember, you asked Jesus to help you through Lent. Ask God to help you not crave a cheeseburger.”
—Fred Eaker, SAFFRON CROSS: THE UNLIKELY STORY OF HOW A CHRISTIAN MINISTER MARRIED A HINDU MONK Upper Room Books

What do you need help with this Lent? 11 years ago I gave up meat for Lent. I did it for me, my faith, my interfaith marriage, and the planet.

2021 Lent is so much harder than giving up Five Guys. We are already weary. But in our brokenness, we are perfect disasters.

What do you need right now? Ask.

Tomorrow I'll send out free resources for Lent. If you're in need of a little help, I'm here. If you aren't already receiving my newsletter, sign up here: bit.ly/2LM9EmL
NEW PODCAST: Grief and loss are an inevitable part of life. The question is, how do we steward it without becoming bitter and disillusioned?

On this episode of The Faithful & True Podcast, we continue our conversation with Beth Miller, author of What Loss Can Teach Us: A Sacred Pathway to Growth and Healing. Pick up your copy today at Upper Room Books.
