Yes, hot off the press is a new book of devotions for Lent: The Big Story – The Bible as a Connected Story for Lent and Holy Week.
Perfect for personal devotions, for weekly Bible studies, youth groups and sermon series. – And what a gorgeous cover!
Day by day from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, we follow The Big Story of God and Gods people. Each week the story seemingly crashes to an end, but by God’s grace, it continues.
You can follow The Big Story by yourself, with your family, in church, or in a group. The short, lyrical summaries are useful for gaining an overview of the whole story of the Bible, and for showing how some familiar (and some less-familiar) parts of the Bible fit together. Every day includes a section of The Big Story, a space for you to respond with a question to prompt your thoughts, Bible readings, a reflection and a short prayer.
