About The Book: Devotions for each day of Lent. "Who do you say that I am?” (Luke 9:20). The Scriptures refer to him using terms such as “The Word,” “the bread of life,” “Emmanuel,” “the light of the world,” “the Lamb of God,” and “the Son of God.” The references, descriptions, and titles all point to the one through whom God’s salvation plan for humanity was completed—Jesus Christ. In The Sanctuary for Lent 2015, Sue Mink focuses on the names and characteristics of Christ in the Scriptures. The devotions—one for each of the forty days in Lent, plus Sundays—include a suggested Scripture reading, a Bible verse, an inspiring message, and a prayer to keep the focus on Christ during the journey through Lent. This Lenten season, allow The Sanctuary for Lent 2015 to transform you and lead you in a closer walk with Jesus. **When ordering for a congregation, churches often secure additional copies for nursing home residents, those in prisons, and other groups in need of encouragement but are unable to attend services. The small trim size, which fits in a #10 envelope, enables churches to include the booklet in their Lenten mailings.

My Thoughts On The Book: This was a wonderful devotional to use during Lent this year. I loved the fact that each day was dated. I enjoyed the scriptures, the prayers, and the devotionals that went with each day. As a local, rural pastor my only regret is that I did not order these for my congregation in time to distribute them. Next year I will be more prepared. I know they would have loved them because I did share a few from my ebook with several of my congregation and their reactions were priceless.
