Uncovering the Love of Jesus: A Lent Devotional, by Asheritah Ciuciu is a serious, yet encouraging Easter devotional. As the title indicates, this devotional is focused on the love of Christ and Lent, and it's ideal to read during the Lenten season, yet recommended anytime throughout the year.
With a focus on daily devotionals, this book provides a helpful and meaningful guide throughout the Easter season with a deep reflection on the interactions of Jesus in biblical passages. It's designed as a personal bible study, yet adaptable to a group study with friends or a church bible study.
This book is divided into eight main sections, which are titled as Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, Week 6, Week 7, and Resurrection Sunday. Each weekly section includes several chapters, including Lent Celebration, Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, and Activities; yet the Resurrection Sunday section includes three chapters: Resurrection Sunday Celebration, Jesus Has Risen!, and Resurrection Week Activities. Also, this book features additional introductory sections titled as Why Observe Lent?, What Should I Sacrifice for Lent?, and A Prayer for You and Me.
According to page 13, the author shares, "In this world, we we have trouble, Jesus promises, and the season of Lent permits us to be honest about troubles, even as we press on toward Easter Sunday with the hope that Jesus has overcome the world. I pray you will see and savor Jesus in a fresh way in the Gospels and in your life, and that your love for Him would 'abound' more and more in knowledge and depth of insight..."
Uncovering the Love of Jesus is recommended and geared towards various ages, from young adults to older generations.
