Lent is meant to be much more than a muscle contest for the will. Rather, through fasting and focus, Lent helps us to enter into close communion with Jesus as we ponder our sinfulness and the grace coming at Calvary. Many evangelicals are rediscovering the spiritual richness of this ancient tradition.
This download will help you explore the history of Lent and consider what it can mean in your own life. So whether Lentís relatively new to you, or itís been part of your life ís rhythm for many years, this exploration offers you something new to think about.
