Pastor and popular author Adam Hamilton offers 40 days of devotions enabling us to pause, reflect, dig deeper, and emerge changed forever. The devotions, ideal for use in Lent or any other time of the year, include Scripture, reflection on the events of Jesus' final day, stories from Hamilton's own ministry, and prayer. The devotions can be used alone or as a companion to Hamilton's best-selling book, 24 Hours that Changed the World.

In 24 Hours that Changed the World, Hamilton takes readers on a Lenten journey to relive the one day in history that changed everything. He invites both readers and viewers to experience and understand the significance of Jesus' final hours. Drawing on insights from history, archaeology, geography, and the Bible, Hamilton takes us to the Holy Land and provides a deeper understanding of the most amazing day in history. We visit the sites where those earth-shaking events took place, and we walk where Jesus walked along the road that led to the pain and triumph of the cross.
