Click to read sample pages

224 Pages Soft Cover French Flaps

Our ability to understand resurrection, our experience of both a personal Easter as well as the Easter of Christ, is shaped by our stance toward life and what it brings our way.  Herein lies the purpose of Lent.  Whether it is imposed by circumstances or chosen through spiritual discipline, Lent is about nurturing a posture that holds all things lightly, that ensures that our passions are subject to us and not the other way around.

But Lent is a season that many of us fail to appreciate, in part  cause we've grown up with the impression that it is a time of vaguely spiritualized gloominess.

The contributors to God for Us, Beth Bevis, Scott Cairns, Kathleen Norris, James Schaap, Luci Shaw, Richard Rohr, Ronald Rolheiser,Lauren Winner offer a differrent perspective by delving deeply into our Christian tradition they reveal what one theologian has called the "bright sadness" of Lent.
