‘Devotions for Lent (Holy Bible: Mosaic)’ – Review

Buzz this
Not every Christian or every church celebrates Lent.  However, I think it is a good way to prepare one’s heart for Easter, which is the most important day on the Christian calendar, in my opinion.

Devotions for Lent’ from Holy Bible: Mosaic, in the New Living Translation, is a devotional which is broken down by weeks:

Week One -Identifying Discontent
Week Two – Dependence
Week Three – God’s Holiness and Grace
Week Four – Sin and Death
Week Five - Fasting
Passion Week – Hope

In addition to devotionals, written by such giants of the faith as John Charles Ryle, Karl Barth, Watchman Nee, each week includes scripture readings, taken from the Holy Bible: Mosaic (New Living Translation).  The scripture readings come from both the Old Testament (primarily messianic predictions) and the New Testament. 

This lovely little book also includes full-color artwork, contemporary and historical writings, prayers, poems, and hymns from throughout church history.  I especially thought the artwork was a nice addition.  The paintings and photographs come from all over the world and throughout the centuries of Christianity. 

I think it is important that we turn our hearts to the Lord all the time, but particularly at this time of year.  This devotional does not take a lot of time away from busy schedules, but it sets our hearts in the right direction.  This can be used individually, in a group, or as a church.

I really enjoyed this little devotional.  It makes me want to check into the Holy Bible: Mosaic, from which it is derived.
