Society tells us we have the power and where-with-all to make it on our own. The Passionate Journey runs counter to these voices of self-sufficiency with a thoughtful collection of 47 Lenten devotions leading up to the most sacred time of the year—Easter. Through guided reflection, Scripture reading, journaling, silence and prayer, we are drawn into the peace that is generated by solitude, and prompted to reorganize our priorities, to slow down and appreciate the ultimate sacrifice made by Christ on our behalf. These well-crafted devotional readings are divided into four, 10-day sections with a special portion for Easter holy week, especially designed to help readers attend to Jesus’ sacrifice, and apply the message of the Passion to their life. Additional helps are included in the appendix to help adapt the readings for small-group or family devotions. Even Christians whose faith traditions don’t ordinarily include Lenten devotions will find these reflections a welcome retreat and will help connect their lives to Jesus’ sacrificial story.

I thought this devotional was very sensitive to my spiritual needs, the journaling appealed to me the most. I was disappointed I didn't get more to share with my husband and ministry members. Read full review

User Review  - Naomi -

This book is a good way to get ready for Easter. I enjoyed both the Scripture readings and the daily thoughts. I did not enjoy that the prayer for each day was the same. The journaling pages after each day were a good way to reflect on what you had read. Read full review
