This Wednesday, Christians who follow the Western church calendar will enter a 40-day period of prayer, fasting, and spiritual reflection known as Lent. This spiritual practice is recognized by many high Christian traditions, but it’s also widely practiced in nonliturgical circles.
Lent is a season of preparation that traditionally includes penitence, prayer, and fasting; it culminates in the celebration of Easter.
A fresh perspective for Lent
In addition to regular Bible readings, devotional resources can bring fresh perspective to this season. Lexham Press is pleased to introduce 40 Days to the Cross: Reflections from Great Thinkers, a resource that will guide you through Lent. You’ll journey with Augustine, Irenaeus, Thomas à Kempis, Thomas Aquinas, John Newton, Charles Spurgeon, and others as they offer insights into Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection.
You’ll be prompted to the act of confession with readings from the Psalms, and reflect on Christ’s journey to the cross with readings from Matthew. In our busy world, it’s easy to neglect the simple act of self-examination. Probing response questions at the end of each devotional will prompt you to dig deep and then end your devotional in prayer.
40 Days to the Cross will help you contemplate our shared experience of Jesus’ death and resurrection—the very center of our faith.
