My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lent is a question, a gift, and a summons. The questions of Lent are: What are we doing? Are we working for that which does not satisfy? Are we spending for that which is not bread?

A journey of Lent for 40 days a devotional to bring to mind the questions of Lent. Each chapter starts with a verse, commentary and ends with prayer to be in God’s presence. This all sounds very good to the follower of Christ and one that desires to look at Lent a fresh new way. I however, did not experience that and to be honest, I am not sure why. Maybe this is for you and if you are like me, maybe it’s not. It just did not live up to the questions that it asked. The key word of the above questions is we…I am more encouraged when it reads what God did.

A Special Thank You to Westminster John Knox Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
