This book provides scripture-based reflections for each day of the Lenten season. It is an uplifting work for those who wish to enrich their personal prayer and meditation. It shows the Lenten season in its intended light -- as a period of preparation, where we ready ourselves spiritually for life as Christians.
In this, Gribble provides a daily challenge to the one who is searching for a way to draw closer to God in everyday life. With each day's reading he includes scripture passages, a theme and keenly stimulating thoughts for reflection.
More than simply a collection for personal meditation, it is also ideal for teaching and preaching illustrations.
