The Sanctuary For Lent
A nice devotional for use during Lent 2015 - the dated cover being the least useful aspect of this book. The devotions are practical and interesting. Most are rooted closely to the Biblical text, consisting of six parts:
- The date
- A scripture reference of 5 to 10 versus - to be read from one’s Bible
- A highlighted key verse from the daily scripture passage
- A devotional focused on one of the names or characteristics of Jesus (e.g. “Jesus is the light of the world.” or “Jesus is the conqueror of the world.”
- A brief prayer that summarizes the devotional - the prayer provides a handy way to remember the subject and content of the day’s devotional.
The oblong size of this devotional book can serve as a handy bookmark during Lent and could continue to be used for the purpose even after the Lenten season has passed.
Though I received a free electronic copy from the publisher in order to create this review, I placed a quick order so I can distribute copies to my congregation the weekend before the start of Lent. I expect others may want to do the same.
This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review and a second paper copy which I purchased for my and my church’s use. The opinions expressed are my own.
