Based on the Lectionary Year C, a rotating three year cycle of reading the Bible, NT Wright, an Anglican and former Bishop of Durham, has written a wonderfully warm and personal devotional guide based on the Gospel of Luke as well selected Psalms.
Published here in the states by Westminster John Knox Press, Wright offers the reader, and I would include older children in the audience for this book, a helpful and thoughtful set of readings designed to focus on the life and ministry of Jesus as he unfolds it from the the first chapters to the the final chapters of Luke. A short passage, for most days, followed by a generally short reflection, and the prayer focus, completes each day’s reading. The readings begin with Ash Wednesday and conclude with the Saturday after Easter.
I liked this book for its simple and yet deep insights and reflections that are for the reader who is seriously reflecting on his/her life and faith during the season of Lenten. It would make a great guide for families.
I give this book a ‘very good’ rating.
Note: I received a galley copy of this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for a review. I was not required to write a positive review.
