Author and pastor Evan Drake Howard sees a great irony in the age: despite all of our high-tech gadgets and nonstop entertainment, many of us are bored, lonely, and haunted by the wilderness within. In From Sacrifice to Celebration, he brings to life the Lenten journey as an opportunity for adventure, excitement about the future, and a renewed relationship with God.
Each chapter is based on a Gospel text about a biblical character's journey from boredom to bonding with Christ. Readers will meet several characters, including Nicodemus, the Samaritan woman, a blind man, and the prodigal son.
Power, discipline, temptation, and "the ego trap" are all explored in the context of these characters. An insightful prayer and questions for reflection and study are found at the end of each chapter.
Ideal for personal or small-group reflection.
