The Lord Is Our Salvation invites us to explore Gods saving and redeeming love through a study of the scripture readings for Lent and Easter. Author Katie Z. Dawson invites us to a deeper understanding of the salvation Christ offers by exploring the various ways God restores us and our world to wholeness. Through each week of Lent, Dawson opens the Scriptures to show Gods redemption at work in the men, women, and communities of the Bible. In her personal and insightful reflections, readers will hear a call to embrace Christs salvation in their lives and in the world around them.
Based upon the Revised Common Lectionary scriptures for year B of the church year, a three-year cycle of Bible readings. The study includes commentary and reflection on readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles. It offers the opportunity to explore these key Bible readings in a seven-session study. It will help participants understand, appreciate, and engage in meaningful and life-changing spiritual practices and to offer gratitude for Gods salvation through Jesus Christ.
The study book includes a leader guide with information about the season of Lent, suggestions for starting and leading small groups, Bible background, and discussion activities.
