With compelling spiritual insight, compassionate pastoral sensitivity, and a deep desire to see believers grow in their freedom in Christ, author Rod Hugen, who also sometimes writes columns in The Banner, offers daily devotions beginning on Ash Wednesday and finishing on Easter Sunday.
By drawing parallels between the Old Testament and New Testament passages, particularly between the gospel of John and the book of Genesis, Hugen shows how Jesus is the fulfillment of God’s promise to Adam and Eve and all humanity to send a rescuer who would crush the serpent’s head. Each devotion includes the biblical passages, wise observations, penetrating questions, suggestions for ways to grow in faith, and a concluding prayer. For each Sunday, Hugen celebrates one spiritual discipline—studying, supplication, silence, self-denial, solitude, and sabbath—and explains its relevance for the Christian’s walk with Jesus. An excellent resource for the Lenten journey. (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform)
