4 Stars Out Of 5
April 9, 2010
I really enjoyed this Lenten devotional book. There were 5 weeks of focus and then it also included the Passion Week. Each week focused on a different scripture passage, had a short devotional thought from a historical contributor and there was also a great meditation. I really felt the meditations helped me to come back to what is really important at this time of the year. I also loved that they left some blank space after each section so that I could write down my own thoughts and feelings about what I read. I know that this is a book that I will pull out each Lent to prepare my heart for the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross just for me! It also makes Easter that much more special when my heart is prepared!
I really loved the book concept; it's compact and great to take with you. However, that is also what I don't love about it. The books it almost too small to read easily: the print is very tiny.Putting the print size aside, the content is really great. Even though we are already in the midst of the Lent season, it is a great devotional for anytime self reflection. I just jumped in from the day I got it.When you first open the book you are greeted with a "how to" section that quickly moves into the individual day devotion. The devotions center around a theme (for instance; Identifying Discontent) and works to weave that theme into each day of that week in an effort to draw your life closer in parallel to the Lord.This devotional provides a personal thought for the day along with suggested biblical reading, as most devotionals do. However, what makes it unique is that the book actually has the weekly suggested reading in the back of the book (NIV) so there is no need to take a bible with you.In addition, "Devotions for Lent" also provides historical quotations and a meditation section from outside authors, which adds additional insights that work into that days theme. Most days even offer a line area to put your own thoughts, reflections, meditations or prayers. The book is designed to be used in many different applications and it delivers"Devotions for Lent" is a compact, affordable book that is convenient, well thought out, and insightful.
