Do you observe Lent? In Uncovering the Love of Jesus by Asheritah Ciuciu, she starts the book talking about what it means to observe Lent and ways to observe Lent that create meaning in your heart. She ends the first section with a prayer based on Ephesians 3:16-24.
There are 40 days of reading, as you would probably expect, in Uncovering the Love of Jesus. Each reading includes a Bible verse and a Bible section to read, a short devotional reading, a challenge, a prayer and more Scripture to look up if you would like. One of the neat features of this book is that it can turn the season of Lent in to a family time of learning and growing in Jesus. There are activities for your family to do listed for each week.
First of all I have to say Uncovering the Love of Jesus is a beautiful small well-bound book. I love the gorgeous full color spring flowers bordering the title on the cover. This book would be easy to carry around with a Bible in a book bag if you want to get out and do your readings at a park or coffee shop. I like that each day's reading is challenging but not overwhelming. I think it is doable for many people and families to use. Most importantly, I think using Uncovering the Love of Jesus is good for keeping you and your family closer to Jesus during the time leading up to Easter Sunday.
I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishers. All opinions within this review are my own.
