Glory of the Cross, The: Reflections for Lent from the Gospel of John
164 in stock
In many ways, Easter is supposed to be the high-point of the year for Christians, but for many of us, the day quickly comes and goes without us really feeling any different. Yet for centuries Christians around the world have marked the season of Lent – the forty days leading up to Easter – as a way of reflecting on their need for forgiveness and anticipating Christ's work on the cross.
These daily readings allow you to soak up the real meaning of Christ's death and resurrection. Each week, you'll read through one or two chapters of John's Gospel. The Sunday reading provides an introduction to the passage as a whole, while the rest of the week's reflections work through it in smaller sections. A carefully selected prayer is included each day.
“These three-page readings... are honouring to Christ, careful with the text, perceptive and edifying... Tim Chester takes sections of John’s Gospel and shows us the majesty and mercy of Jesus, giving us a great resource.”
