I purchased extra copies of this book to give to friends and family members. The selected readings in your daily Lenton devotions from this author led me to the purchase. I have not read the book yet and am keeping it for next year's use. The readings you provided really spoke to me and I look forward to reading the entire book.
I was looking for a book of Lenten readings and this fit my needs. Each reading contains Bible verses as well as 3 sections: Read,Reflect and Respond. I read 1 each day and and this book is a perfect addition to my other Lenten studies.
I can tell you with absolute confidence that is not a 'new age', unless you want to define 'new age' as a new or renewed scrutiny into the heart and experience our Savior's last week on this earth. Often the Cross is all about you and me, and as awesome as the truth is that Christ came to set us free and draw us back into an intimate relationship with the Father, we miss His glory if we do not take time to comprehend His pain. Having read this book each year for the past four years as my meditation during the 40 days prior to Easter, I can affirm that this is a book no soul-bought believer would want to pass up. It will bring you to a New Age of discovery of Jesus' love and passion that will overwhelm you and impact your life until you see Him face to face in all His glory.
With so many devotionals that focus on YOU, this one is a wecome change since it focuses on JESUS! It makes you think real hard about what He did for us. It makes us wish we could have comforted Him. It's so good I didn't want to put it down.
