This is a Lenten devotional that is appropriate for use by individuals as well as families. Lent is not a tradition that is part of any particular denomination. A period of fasting and prayer was observed by the early church in preparation for Resurrection Sunday and it did not become a formal practice in the church until the First Council of Nicaea in AD 325. This book is an opportunity to focus on Jesus and His love for us in preparation for Easter Sunday.
The book is a collection of 40 daily devotionals which reflect on Jesus and His interactions with people from different walks of life. Each devotional includes a Scripture reading and prayer along with a challenge on how to apply what you learned about the love of Jesus that day. There are also outlines for family celebrations at the beginning of each week as well as suggested individual and family activities.
This book is a wonderful resource to use during the Lenten season, to reflect on the life of Jesus and prepare your heart in celebration for Easter Sunday.
I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
