I enjoyed both the Scripture readings and the daily thoughts. I did not enjoy that the prayer for each day was the same. The journaling pages after each day were a good way to reflect on what you had read.
Richard Kithcart5 Stars Out Of 5November 9, 2006Richard KithcartI enjoyed going through this book as a part of a small group study with the author. I learned things that I wasn't aware of about Jesus and those final days of His life. I also learned much about myself. Marty has interjected events from his own life that, in some cases, added humor to make a point. In other instances, I found myself nearly crying as he has described incidents that parallel some of my own experiences. The way he has written the book makes the reader take an active part in it thereby insuring that it will be remembered beyond the Lenten season.
Helen Hollis5 Stars Out Of 5October 30, 2006Helen HollisI was priviledged to participatein a small study group using Walking into the Darkness Toward the Light of Easter. The lessons caused me to examine my inner selfand find a stronger peace of mindand faith. A comradeship was foundwithin the group which resulted insharing each other's doubts andweaknesses. I'm glad I attendedthe Lenten study.

What was your motivation behind this project? Western society is dominated by voices that are opposed to Lent. Lent is a contemplative death- march that Christians perform each year in order to stay attentive to the sacrificial work of God. We pick up our crosses, letting our selves die a bit each day that Christ might live more fully within us. Society offers us little help in living this type of sacrificial life. Rarely do we hear about death except in tragic terms. Advertisers, politicians, and entertainers train us to be self-interested consumers not disciples. This book is a personal attempt to return to the basics of our salvation. Its a Christian version of "raging against the cultures machine" in order to live more like Jesus. I hope it will help others live out Jesus counter-cultural, revolutionary calling.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Lent is a 40 day gift of time during which Christians consider Jesus gift-his sacrificial death on our behalf. Its a time of remembrance and contemplation, when we walk toward death with Christ. We relive Jesus Passion by rereading the Gospel accounts. We anticipate our own deaths and pray that our journeys will be faithful, reflecting Jesus obedient journey to the cross. The Passionate Journey is designed to help the reader embrace this gift of time and renew Christs call to sacrificial living.
