The Grace-filled Wilderness: A Journey through Lent by Magdalen Smith
The Grace-filled Wilderness connects contemporary encounters of wilderness with the traditional themes of Lent and Jesus’ journey to the cross. Magdalen Smith invites us to consider a series of subjects that are double-edged – they can bring us life or, if we handle them in the wrong way, drain life from us.
Our appetites, our identity, our work, our sense of freedom and our struggles with anxiety and pain are explored in connection with what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
Six full weeks of readings help us to move gradually from wilderness to grace until, finally, we encounter the miracle, hope and joy of Easter.
