In this devotional, meditations for each day between Ash Wednesday and Easter focus on passages from the Gospel of Matthew. Using this book as a guide, readers will work their way through the entire Gospel, probing its meaning. Reflection questions and a prayer with each reading encourage readers to consider the passage's signifigance for their lives.
Customer Review: Bible readings followed by commentary and the addition of reflection questions and prayer. This is a good meditation resource.
I purchased this book with no particular expectations except to have a daily reading for Lent. How pleasantly surprised I've been! I am not finished yet but I wanted to write a review to say how much I am enjoying it. The book is not preachy and does not presume to have all the answers. It offers insights and suggests questions from passages in Matthew. I'm enjoying reading passages first, reflecting on the parts that speak to me, then reading what the author has to say about the passages he chooses to discuss. I see there are other books that are similar. I plan to get one of those for next Lent.
