Journey from Lent to Easter with Calvin Miller & I!

I received this devotional as a special 'Thank You' gift from a family which makes it really special for me. What I love about this devotional in particular, is that it takes you on a 48-day spiritual journey that puts you in a reflective mood and leads you prayerfully from Shrove Tuesday - the first day in Lent or day before Ash Wednesday - to the first day of Easter (Easter or Resurrection Sunday).

Each day's devotion contains a scripture reading from the Holy Bible, followed by a reflection, a prayer and additional Bible readings. For those who are very visual, there are also some really beautiful illustrations or classical art, by David Shepherd, which effectively capture the mood of each day's theme and help to put you in the right mood by bringing the realness of the circumstances surrounding Lent and Easter into your consciousness.

Take the lenten journey with Calvin Miller and I so that you can experience spiritual growth and renewal that is guaranteed to deepen your relationship with God. And remember to read it ONE day at a time.

Listen to some Easter music while you're here also and test your knowledge of Easter with the Easter Quizz and Easter Poll.
