40-day Lent devotional from a beloved spiritual writer
As for the field, so for the soul: "The neglected heart will soon be overrun with worldly thoughts.” Careful cultivation yields a harvest, and the heart requires great attention. .
From the Grave, a 40-day Lent devotional, reflects on this critical spiritual dynamic. It features A. W. Tozer's best insights on faith, repentance, suffering, and redemption. Gleaned from transcribed sermons, editorials, and published books, each moving reflection has been carefully selected for the season of Lent. It addresses themes like:
Each day features a brief portion of Scripture for meditation followed by a reflection from Tozer. Together the entries take you on a journey from the garden to the grave to light of day—the “pain-wracked path” to life.
From the Grave is smaller than the your average size book, it is also hard back versus paper. I like the layout of the book. Each day is devotional in style, a verse followed by Tozer’s writing related to the daily scripture. I am a Tozer fan, I like his matter of fact writing style and that he simply addresses the topic at hand. In this Lent Devotional, what Tozer shares is timeless, it applies as much when he wrote it as it does to now. The progression of material presented each day is building towards the celebration of Easter. While this devotional is geared towards Lent and preparing us for Easter, I would go through this devotional any time during the year.
Devotionals can easily become check boxes on the list of daily to dos but when given time in one’s day it has the potential for impacting what one thinks about and applies during the course of the day.
I highly recommend this devotional book for next year’s season of Lent or if you are looking for a 40 day challenge.
