"He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves." (Col. 1:13, HCSB)
During the forty-seven days between Lent and Easter, Christians are called to walk along the path of faith with Jesus Christ, experiencing challenge and triumph alike, before arriving at that wondrous place where eternal life in God wins ultimate victory over death.
In this volume, which follows the Liturgical Year A studies and is dated for use in 2014, read along with theologian Mark Fredericksen as he explores both well-known and oft-forgotten scriptures, tying all back to the central theme of Jesus' new and everlasting commandment of love. Including daily readings, meditation passages, journal questions and prayers, you'll learn, grow and expand your relationship with God through this Lenten devotional.
Dr. Mark says, "We have our mountaintop moments of profound awareness and connection with God, usually followed by low points of doubt and stress for managing our lives on our own. As we walk together through these days of Lent, remember two things. First, remember that God has joined Godself to you in a loving covenant that is everlasting. Second, that through the community of faith, we hold one another in our doubts and fears, as well as our certainties and faith."
Join Christians around the world on this wondrous journey, getting ready for the Good News to come. He is Risen!
