, Scott Hahn masterfully paints the big picture of God's covenant love in salvation history from Genesis to Jesus. The stories of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David all lead to Christ and his sacrifice for us. Beginning with Ash Wednesday and ending with Divine Mercy Sunday, each day's reading is designed to deepen the Lenten experience by offering:
- A meaningful reflection
- A daily Scripture verse
- A prayer for each day
- A personal question
From Genesis to Jesus, these Lenten reflections based on A Father Who Keeps His Promises highlight biblical characters such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David that lead us to Christ and his sacrifice for us. Delving into the rich history of God's covenant with us, each day's reading gives the reader much to reflect on throughout Lent, culminating with Easter and ending with Divine Mercy Sunday. In addition to the reflection, there is a daily Scripture verse, a prayer, and a relevant question, all designed to deepen the reader's Lenten experience.
